Hello Beautiful Woman! (Yep, that's YOU.)
Ahhh life with all of its flux and shifts, ebbs and flows.
Most change comes down to a decision, really, doesn't it? Once we decide to do it, everything else falls into place. Our focus shifts, our actions streamline, and our hearts and minds become one.
It's all that back-and-forth wishy-washy excuses and fluttering and nattering about that happens BEFORE the decision is made that causes us so much grief and loss of energy.
Can we skip that step entirely? Probably not. But it sure helps to trim the fat and move through the decision making phase as quickly as possible, make the commitment, and get to the good stuff.
A new season is upon us, and with it comes the urge to break free from old patterns and to leap forward with our best visions for ourselves. Let's use that energy to help us make a decision, to commit, and to take action. I'm right there with you feeling the urge to "step it up" and boldly invest in myself and my dreams.
Life is cheering us on. Go us!

Do You Truly Believe? Stop Thinking and Start Doing
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. ~ Goethe
Believing you can do it is extremely helpful for your long-term success in reaching your goals and creating a healthier way of living for yourself.
The more action you take toward your goal, the more you will believe you can do it. Action breeds confidence. (Self-doubt loves paralysis and sitting around and thinking about it. The more we think about it, the more reasons we find NOT to do it.)
When you’re just starting out, you might be not feel 100% sure you can do it. That’s OK. In fact, that's normal. As long as you believe it is possible, you are on your way!
What will you do to make yourself focus on the the possibility of success instead of failure? What’s it going to take to make it seem “doable” to you?
When we don’t think it’s possible or think we can’t do it, our inner “gremlin” starts to feed our doubt a steady diet of “what’s the point anyway” or “you’re too lazy to get lean and fit” or “it’s never gonna happen for you, just give up.” Don't give him that power!
Turn your back on that gremlin and prove that little beastie wrong. Use your own voice to drown out those negative thoughts.
“Oh yeah? Well, just watch me do it.”
And off you go!
When doubts start to creep in, taking action is the BEST thing you can do. Nothing shuts that inner critic up faster than you ignoring it and diving in.
Taking action not only gets you closer to your goals, it keeps you more firmly rooted in the present, in your body, in a more positive state. Getting out of your head and out of future “what if” scenarios and other negative thoughts is key.
The longer you listen to those thoughts, the more they can drag you down. Say “enough!” and go DO something instead.
What is one thing you can do for yourself to help your health RIGHT NOW in this moment?
- Exercise for 10 minutes?
- Make a healthy lunch for tomorrow?
- Listen to some funky energetic music that feels positive and fun?
- Close your eyes for three minutes and visualize yourself feeling healthy and amazing and fit?
Focus on one thing at a time. You can do this!
Don't worry about tomorrow or next week or what if this or what if that. You are extremely powerful in this moment. Every tiny step is a step forward.
Play. Keep finding out what works for you. Keep experimenting. Bit by bit, living with confidence and freedom becomes the new norm.
You'll love the way you feel and feel the way you love!

No-Bake Gluten/Dairy/Egg-Free Blueberry Pie
It's 4 pm and you have a potluck to go to in a less than two hours. What the heck are you going to bring?
Worse yet, you've been eating really cleanly lately (yay!) and just know that the desserts at the family gathering are going to tempt you beyond belief with fattening, artery-clogging, sugary decadence that will leave you feeling fatigued and disgusted with yourself (or white-knuckling it all the way).
What to do?
Make a quick and healthy berry pie! This amazingly simple and shockingly healthy blueberry cobbler or pie solves both problems in one go. All you need is a blender or a food processor, nuts, berries, lemon juice, shredded coconut, banana, and dates (the rest you could skip and it will still turn out OK).
Nummy and pretty, yes?
They'll never know it's healthy or how quickly you threw it together. And best of all, you'll have a fabulous dessert option for yourself that still feels decadent and special.
Don't you love it when a plan comes together? [Insert evil laugh here. Then casually remove blueberry from between your front teeth.]
Have a wonderful week appreciating all of the blessings in your life and heart. Keep your dreams on the front burner and focus on what truly brings you joy, what makes you feel powerful, what makes you feel alive and free. Make it happen! I'm cheering you on all the way.
