Optimize These 3 Areas in Your Life for Highest Productivity & Profitability

Jul 26, 2021
 

A couple of weeks ago I watched a great training session with a powerhouse Master Coach who was coaching other coaches and female entrepreneurs.

This Master Coach makes approximately 18 million dollars a year coaching women on weight loss, and she was speaking with this young woman who is also a coach. This young woman was feeling incredibly frustrated and defeated because her business wasn’t taking off.

At one point during the conversation the young woman said in frustration, “why isn’t all the work I’ve been putting into this business working!?

And the Master Coach took a moment, and said to her very calmly “Because you haven’t been doing it long enough yet, you need to keep going

Well that just upset this young woman further, and she said, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME, I’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR FOUR YEARS!!"

And the Master Coach said “For 9 years it cost me more to run my business, than what I got out of it. I went from...

The Impact of the Pandemic is Changing What Self-Care Looks Like.

Jul 05, 2021
 

Self-Care has always been a popular a buzz word. When we think of self-care, we tend to think about getting a massage, or spending the afternoon with a friend to get a manicure, or taking a bubble bath, or going to a yoga class.

Pre-covid we incorporated self-care into our busy lives when we could. We knew it was important and felt proud of ourselves when we actually followed through with making it a priority.

At the very beginning of the pandemic and into the summer of 2020, my husband and I were focused on exercising, eating healthy, meditating, and doing whatever we could to take care of our health and wellbeing.

Our stress levels were incredibly high so keeping our health in check was important. I was trying to keep my businesses alive, we were worried and unsure about our daughter’s school situation, at one point during the summer we were dealing with evening curfews in New York (which was crazy!). Then we were pretty sure my husband got Covid… and the list...

How Do I Manage My Desires Around Food & Wine?

Jun 14, 2021
 

How to control eating habits? What are the thoughts that eliminate desire? How do you become indifferent to food and wine? 

Imagine being head over heels in love with someone only to find out they are a serial killer, torture puppies for fun, and are a horrible human being. That desire is gone!

Take a moment to visualize a delicious brownie (or some other food you have a HIGH desire for) and conjure up the feelings of wanting it sooooo badly. Now visualize it being full of maggots and it has cockroaches crawling all over it. Instantly that desire is gone.

When we say, “I want that cupcake”, wanting it is not a fact... it’s a choice.

Wanting a glass of wine is not a fact. Wanting is a choice. The desire for certain foods is a choice, but our brains are powerful so we trick ourselves into thinking and feeling that we want that cupcake… that we NEED it.

What do you want to create for yourself? Make a million dollars? Stop drinking? Stop eating food that...

30 Day Renewal - The Desire To Lose Weight vs The Desire For Food

Jun 07, 2021
 

My weight loss journey has been a real struggle for me these past couple of years. I’ve been dealing with:

  • Hormone changes
  • Aging
  • High stress & anxiety levels
  • Depression
  • Programs not working (and other excuses)

However, when you have a high desire to lose weight coupled with a high desire for food, those other issues I listed above are not really the problem.

Today is Day 29 of my 30-day renewal and I’ve learned a lot! Truly the transformation I experienced did not occur with my body like I thought it would. The transformation came from opening my eyes to the fact that I REALLY want to lose weight… and I REALLY get a lot of pleasure from eating food and drinking good wine.

This is my current programing, and I didn’t realize how powerful and ingrained into my subconscious it is.

This is a great realization to have – but now what?!

Well, now I need to address this high desire for delicious food and good wine. My brain is sending me signals...

30 Day Renewal - Making Sustainable, Long-Term Changes.

May 31, 2021

Why is making massive changes in our lives hard to sustain?

We are wired to stay safe. We are wired to survive.

When our “normal” is eating crappy food and drinking too much alcohol, we feel safe. There's a comfort in making those choices because it's what we do on a regular basis.

Then there comes a time when we desperately want to make changes in our lives, but our brain freaks out because we’re stepping outside our safety zone. Maybe it’s losing weight, or quitting smoking, or starting your own business, or cutting back on alcohol, or quitting your job… it’s natural for us to RESIST change.

Intellectually we know making these changes are good for us. We know incorporating healthier lifestyle choices into our lives will in fact help us to survive and live longer… but our brain doesn’t see it that way. All it sees is that we have felt safe eating crappy food and drinking too much wine, so making these changes must be a bad thing....

30 Day Renewal - The Benefits of Celery Juice

May 25, 2021

Yes! I am on the Celery Juice wagon. The Medical Medium has won me over and I am a Celery Juice convert. 

I wish I would have known about all the incredibly healing properties of this magic herb earlier… but I guess timing is everything.

I’m halfway through my 30-Day renewal program and as a part of this program I’m drinking 16 – 24 oz of fresh organic celery juice every morning.

My morning routine basically looks like this:

6:45 am:  Drink 20 oz of water with 5 Super Amino Tablets from Purium.
7 – 8 am:  Go for a hike with my husband and our dog.
8:30 am:  Drink 16 – 24 oz of fresh celery juice.
9 am:  Drink my Purium Power Shake

As you can see from my schedule I drink my celery juice on an empty stomach, then wait 30 minutes before consuming anything else (including water).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t add anything to your celery juice when you drink it, if you want to receive the most benefits. No lime… no...

30 Day Renewal - Day 9 and My WHY!

May 18, 2021

Why Know Your WHY?

When You Know Your WHY, You Know Your WAY!

I’ve been talking about knowing your WHY with my coaching clients a long time before Simon Sinek made it popular.

We see the question “what’s your why?” in books, podcasts, motivational talks and workshops. It helps us establish meaning and a purpose behind our drive.

Knowing our WHY also helps us develop a sense of purpose. Studies show that people who feel a sense of purpose make more money, are happier, healthier & more confident, and deal with stress & anxiety more easily.

So here I am, on a 30-day renewal and today is day 9.

Have I slipped a little? Yep! In full transparency, on day 6 and 7 I slipped and didn’t fully stick to my plan. I’m back on track now, but what I realized is that I didn't get clear on my WHY at the beginning of the 30 days so it was easier to justify cheating.

No one is forcing me to do this 30-day renewal. I can drop it today and forget about it...

30 Day Renewal - Day 3 and Three Pounds Down

May 12, 2021

Health is a personal journey.

Weight is also a very personal journey.

Some people might read this and roll their eyes thinking that I really have nothing to worry about in terms of my weight. While it is true that I am not obese, depending on your definition, it is also true that my weight has been a private struggle and this is the first time I’m discussing it publicly.

I’m more comfortable telling someone my age than I am my weight. Not that my age or weight comes up in a conversation regularly, but it’s an interesting fact nonetheless. I’m sure many people feel the same way.

Lately, I don’t like looking in the mirror. I don’t like the way my clothes look on me. I don’t like the way I FEEL when I wake up in the morning.

It wasn’t always that way.

I was skinny as a kid – tall and lanky – but I could eat! My grandmother always commented on the fact that she didn’t know where I put it all. She said I had a hollow leg!

30 Day Renewal

May 10, 2021

re·new·al | \ ri-ˈnü-əl

1. : the act or process of renewing
2. : the quality or state of being renewed

I've done my fair share of challenges, cleanses and detoxes... but this month I'm choosing to focus on my health for a much needed 30-day RENEWAL! 

Today Is Day One!

My word for 2021 is vitality but over the past couple of months my behavior has incorporated more stagnation and avoidance than it has energy and drive.

So I'm climbing back up into the saddle, and it's all starting with celery juice.

I know! I know! It sounds random and maybe a little gross - but stick with me here.


Did You Know Celery is a Herb?

 
The juice from this powerful and healing herb has MASSIVE anti-inflammatory properties and flushes out toxins from the body. Celery juice helps to purify your bloodstream… aid in the repair of ligaments and bones… prevent migraines… reduce blood pressure… clear up skin issues… reduce suffering from...

Using Your Word of the Year To Simplify Your Goals in 5 Easy Steps

Jan 06, 2021

Well 2020... That Was Weird! 

If last year has taught us anything, it's that things can go sideways really quickly and knock you off balance!

Normally at the beginning of every year I write a list of goals I want to accomplish throughout that year. Some of my goals in the past have been:
  • Learn a new language.
  • Read a book every week.
  • Start a podcast.
  • Sign up X amount of people to my programs.
  • Get in the best shape of my life.
You get the idea.
 
I would estimate that I accomplish 10% of the goals I put down on my list by the end of the year (probably less) – and if you know me, you know I’m VERY driven, focused and determined. So why only 10%?

“You overestimate what you can do in a year, but underestimate what you can do in ten”.


Over this past week, once again I sat down with a cup of tea and set some goals for myself... but here's the thing! I simplified the process significantly this year because I want 2021 to be full of...
