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 - 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 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!

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...

What Do You Make Non-Negotiable?

Jun 12, 2017

What Do You Make Non-Negotiable?

At the beginning of March, I joined two of my friends in a month-long exercise challenge where we had to commit to doing some sort of exercise every single day. It was a very interesting month. I had two business trips – one to San Diego and the other to Japan (which included two 24-hour travel days). I also had to deal with a snow day at the beginning of the month… so my daughter was home from school on a day that I didn’t plan for. One of my friends I was doing the challenge with got incredibly sick and was hosting a number of events around the same time. Despite these seemingly very good excuses not to follow through, we all still managed to complete our challenge!

Every single day we did some sort of exercise. On the days I was traveling, and it felt like I didn’t have any time whatsoever, I did an 8 minute Fastblast – which is a HIIT workout (a high intensity interval training workout). On the days...
