Feeling Like Poop!

Today I am grateful for my health.  Feeling like poop is for the freaking birds!!!

For the past week I’ve been under the weather with a head cold, congestion, coughing, headache and all that fun stuff.  On top of that, I’ve also had awful menstrual cramps and other side effects as a result of that time of the month. (Sorry boys, it’s part of being a woman!!)

So I share all of this to ask you this:

  • When was the last time you really expressed your gratitude for your health?

  • Do you wait until you’re reminded to be grateful only when you get sick or hurt?

  • Or do you proactively say a prayer of gratitude for your physical health, when you are feeling fantastic, as well as when you are facing challenges like a headache or cramps or worse?

Today my wish for you is to embrace your health and Fitness with a new perspective, never forgetting that it can all change in a instance.

Affirmations today for you and me:

**Thank you Universe for allowing me to have...

The Filling Station of Life

I hope you've had an amazing week!  It's Friday and I'm wondering if you are filling "full" or "empty"?  

Yes, this is a subject as a coach, trainer, and speaker I talk about a lot with you.  Because it is SOOOOO important to your success in all areas of your life.

If you watch my online training on social media channels (for zero dollars), you might have caught me challenging you at the beginning of May to "fill yourself up" for at least 5 minutes every day for 30 days.  If you heard it, did you do it?  If you didn't hear it, can you reflect back on May and ask how many days did you INPUT some good stuff?

Good stuff meaning podcasts, videos, books, online courses, music, a spiritual community.... anything that fills you up from the inside out in a truly positive and uplifting way.  In today's world, it is so readily available - at no cost, at a small cost, or at larger investments, depending on what you're looking for.

So much has changed since I was...

Amp Up Your Feel Good FEELINGS

#Feeling

/ˈfēliNG/ noun an emotional state or reaction

What do you want to FEEL in the morning when you wake up? How do you want to FEEL as you go through your day? What do you want to FEEL as you lay your head to rest each night?

If your answer is vague, unclear, or unknown, it will be very difficult to manifest the life you were truly meant to live.

The Dalai Lama says, “The point of life is happiness.”

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be many many challenges along the way. What it does mean is that we get to choose how we feel about the challenges.

For example, we can all relate to being in bumper to bumper traffic, on our way to something important, or on our way home from our job or business. Now, look, traffic is one of the most FRUSTRATING things ever. And yet, we each have a choice in how we feel about it, in the moment.

One person may choose to crank up the music, reflect on their day with gratitude, think about their evening ahead with positive...

Frustration

#Frustration

/frəˈstrāSH(ə)n/ noun  the feeling of being upset or annoyed, especially because of inability to change or achieve something.

Have you ever felt the feeling of being upset or annoyed that you didn't have the ability to change, or especially achieve, one of your Fitness goals? That level of Frustration where you are actually so sick and tired of the negativity of the voices of "committee" in your head? To the point that somehow flipped the script and you actually utilized that Frustration as Fuel to take action?

I know I have!

Frustration is not inherently good or bad. It's all about how you use it as a tool in your growth toolbox. It is simply an indicator of something being "off" or not where you want it to be. So we can use it as a barometer check and then set our course to move forward in a direction that leads us to small successes instead of more Frustration.

So let's take the F-Word of Fitness and apply this concept.

Fitness, at it's CORE, consists of 3...

Fingerprint

#Fingerprint

/fin-ger-print/ noun an impression or mark made on a surface by a person's finger

Have you ever really stopped to contemplate the complexity of your own fingerprint? There is nothing like it that exists anywhere else in the world. There are over 7 billion people currently on the planet, and not one other person has your same fingerprint. Not even if you have an identical twin. You still each have your very own fingerprint. How is it possible to have what seems like an infinite combination of simple a pattern of lines, on such a SMALL surface?

Let's take it another step... you have 10 digits that each have their own individualized fingerprint. So now we are talking about 10 times 7 billion different and unique fingerprints currently on the planet. That doesn't account for all that have come before us, and all who are yet to come. Truly, how is this possible?

Why is this an important F-Word when it comes to the Foundation of who You are? Because it is proof, yes proof, to...

Fundamentals: The First F-Word of Life

Fundamentals

/ˌfəndəˈmen(t)əls/ noun serving as a basis supporting existence or determining essential structure or function

The First of The F Words of Life is often the most overlooked in our busy, instant gratification, social media centered world. And yet as you read the definition above, it is absolutely the critical starting point in achieving or experiencing anything else in your life at the highest levels.

So let's dive in... what do the Fundamentals consist of? At the heart of it, they are the things you do daily and weekly that feed your mental and emotional health. We call this self-care or self-love. Ask yourself this, how are you filling yourself up, so that you might live your fullest potential, as well as be of service to others?

The Fundamentals show up in the components of some of the other main F Words of Life. For example, your Faith and your Fitness (overall health) are absolutely critical to the Fundamentals of your life. But right now, I'm just talking about the...
