Sorry it took so long to post these!!!

Here I am at 47 years.    

After having six kids.  

Weight 108 lbs.      
Body fat 10%    

These were just taken 1/2012. To all the moms out there who feel they lost their body after giving birth, it's a MYTH! Do NOT buy into it. Is it easy? No. Is it comfortable? No. Am I hungry from time to time? Yes. Is my body sore? Yes. Am I fatigued here and there? Absolutely. 

Is it worth all this? You bet it is!

It's a New Year. Don't let old beliefs, old habits, and old friends keep you from reaching your health, wellness, and fitness goals. Life is for the living and the taking. Plan for what you want in life. Live the plan. Don't make excuses. Stand up to the challenge! Stand up to yourself. Believe in yourself. Have faith in your plan and yourself. Whether it's eating healthier, challenging yourself more physically, drinking more water, eliminating toxic relationships, or simply getting to bed earlier...just DO IT!

The Three 'Zones'


Three 'Zones' to think about today:

1. The 'Comfort Zone'

A cozy place to be, yet a place where one where generally look back with regret for not having had the gull to do more.

2. The 'Zone': Where intuition comes forth and literally everything seems to just fall into place, physical capabilities run supreme, and intellect is soaring.

3. The 'Trigger Zone': Where one either CHOOSES to push past the comfort zone, or is forced out of their comfort zone. This is the zone where one is tested, tensions run high, uneasiness reins, and proves the individual forcing them to either retreat to their former comfort zone, or muster up the Warrior Spirit within to meet the Challenge.

All of these 'Zones' have a place in our lives. We are not meant to be stagnant in any area. There are times we must seek refuge, rest, calm the nerves and recover. There are times we can grow in leaps and bounds (Choice Points) almost effortlessly, and then there are times we must ride the wave called 'Growth'.

What's your day look like ahead? Your week? Prepare. 

For me, it is a 'Trigger' week. Many growing opportunities, challenging, painful, yet profoundly rewarding. I'm volunteering. How about you?

More on these 'Zones' in my book. Have a marvelous day. Know you can conquer anything.

Food for Thought.....

"Every decision you make - every decision - is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do."        
- Neale Donald Walsch

So I did an experiment yesterday after posting this quote on my Face Book page in the wee hours of the morning. I challenged myself to not only think about my decisions throughout the day, but also base them on 'WHO I AM' vs. 'WHAT I NEED TO DO'.  The outcome was nothing short of a very real, down to earth, humbling lesson taught to me by life itself, based on personal character.

I found that many of the decisions I had been making on a regular basis where completely made on a 'What I need to do' basis, almost in an auto-pilot type of way. When I weighed the difference between 'What I felt I needed to do', with 'Who I am', I found the outcomes to be completely different! Not only were the outcomes different, but also how I felt on the inside was different, this was perhaps, the most surprising element of discovery.

Feelings, character, values, and a feeling of responsibility to both self and others. Yes, I had discovered making choices about 'What I needed to do', came from an almost non-emotional base, whereas making decisions based on 'Who I am', were made with real feeling. It mattered what I wore, how I wore my make-up, how I spoke to others, drove my car, prioritized priorities, and what and how I ate. It affected literally everything I normally do on a daily basis. No lie.


Come'on, I dare you! Do it. Make every decision based on WHO YOU ARE vs. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, for an entire day, and learn VOLUMES about yourself and how you function in the world, and within yourself. Better yet, perform this challenge on two days of the week, one weekend day, and one week day. The week day ought to be real interesting, make sure you do it on a day when your plate is fully loaded. 

May you learn as much and even more about yourself than I did.

Here we are, at the start of another fabulous year! A New Year means new beginnings, new opportunities, new friends, new faces, new experiences, new inspirations, and the privilege of being the one making it all happen. 

Now I realize some of us might be entering the New Year with last years 'baggage'. Baggage? You ask, yes, you know the New Years resolutions from last year that perhaps didn't get completed quite the way we wanted or anticipated. 


Look at where your strengths were. Next, examine the weak areas. Use your strengths to overpower your weaknesses going into the New Year.

Let go of the guilt, shame, and apathetic feeling you've attached to the perceived outcome, it will only weigh you down. 

Make a new commitment, with the understanding that there is NO looking back!!!! That's right, you must keep moving forward despite how uncomfortable it is...sooner or later, you will get used to it.

Well, much of which you will experience will come as a direct result of your efforts, regardless of intentions. You see, intentions are one thing, actions are quite another.


I challenge all my readers to 


Exactly what does this mean? It means when you have a brilliant idea come to you, write it down, and take ACTION on it...immediately! When inspiration strikes, get on your feet and allow it to move through you. When prompted to call someone, read a book, visit a location....listen to the prompting and GO! Set your alarm each morning with the INTENT to get up and GET A MOVE ON YOUR DESIRES! I want you to view your 'snooze button in a whole new way. Instead of calling it the 'snooze' button, this year we're going to call it the 'desire' button. Now, you wouldn't put your 'desires' on hold would you? NO WAY!!!! Then realize whenever you hit the 'desire' button in the morning, you're choosing to put off reaching your desires. Your alarm is a call to you, a call to start the day invigorated, ready to approach the new day that's full of possibilities and opportunities. 


May this year bring you all you desire and more. :)
