A year from now you may wish you had started today. ~ Karen Lamb
At a very young age, I was taught a simple philosophy … early in the day, early in the week, early in the month, early in the year.
That philosophy became even more cemented when I read a book by one of my favorite human potential gurus, Brian Tracy … Eat That Frog.
The theme to both is very simple; start early … even if the task is something you don’t necessarily want to do.
Since we are only guaranteed this moment, we need to do everything we can now […]
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place. ~ Nora Roberts
Let me tell you a story about a ceramics teacher who divided her class into two groups. She gave each group a separate assignment. One group’s focus was quantity and to make 50 pots. The other group’s assignment was on quality making the perfect pot.
At the week’s end, they were to judge who had the best pot. To their surprise, the quantity focused group won. Why?
The group concentrating on […]
Before working one on one with Biz, I lost weight with original protocol easily, but struggled to get through the days without feeling very deprived by the end of my rounds. This always set me up for failure in P3 & P4. I didn’t have the tools or the mind set to be able to keep the weight off long term.
Biz is truly a blessing. I have learned so much from her through my daily check in. Biz has been very supportive, and always offers helpful suggestions along the way. I’m so thankful to have her by my side in […]
I’ve lost weight before….several times actually. My focus was always an upcoming wedding, or event, or some deadline date by which I felt like I needed to lose weight. I lost weight, then would regain it quickly. I repeated that cycle over and over. This time, after a year of feeling sick and overwhelmed and stressed and very, very tired, I decided to make a big lifestyle change and instead, focus on my health. But this time, the weight loss is secondary. I feel healthier than I ever have in my life and I’m about to turn 40 this year.
Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power. ~ Shirley MacLaine
Staying inspired requires doing one’s best and avoiding negativity. When our focal point is unhappy things, they only seem to multiply squeezing out inspiration. Finding or unearthing the good in a situation or circumstance takes work and is an art form.
Negativity surfaces in many forms. Sometimes people we are close to see every inconvenience as a crisis. At times trying to share inspiration and joy with someone results with them wanting to shut you down and then their proceeding to complain about life. Similarly, you may endeavor to look at the […]
Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment. ~ Anthony Robbins
What I like most from the quote above is — achieving goals isn’t what makes […]
Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know. ~ Daniel Boorstin
Just a decade ago, the words probiotics and were rare. By now, while most have heard the words; all they really know is it has something to do with gut health.
Who knew digestion of food, our basic energy source, would be the prime focus in the total health world today? More and more science is saying digestion, and in conjunction, elimination, are two of the most important body systems we can work on to achieve optimal health.
So what are probiotics and prebiotics and how can […]
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. ~ Unknown
Do you remember vehicles with a “reserve” tank? If you were running out of gas, it took a simple switch from the main tank fuel supply to the alternate or reserve tank.
With the next fill up, sometimes closing off that reserve tank was forgotten. The next time you ran out of fuel; it was all tapped out.
Running on empty is exactly what most of us have been doing to our bodies.
Total Body Health, to me, is the most prized […]
