We all make daily choices, some easy some not so easy. In this blog we hope to help fuel those daily choices with content that is relatable, positive, and even humorous sometimes. Yes, we have made great strides in weight loss and health and are happy to help anyone who reaches out, but all in all, we hope to just be a light in your day.
My “fall” into Fall was most definitely not graceful but I am happy to report…I was not injured. 😊
To preface this story…I DO NOT like backing up (any type of vehicle) to the edge of the pit where we dump our tree debris.
“My Farmer” (aka my sweet husband) guided me the first time and had confidence (misplaced as it may have been 😂🤣) that I could do the next few loads on my own.
Well… When I got to the pit, I decided that if I got close enough (but not too close) any debris that landed on the upper edge, I would just swish in with my foot. All was going great, until…
As I was standing on the edge of the pit, holding onto the tailgate, and swishing debris in off the edge; the tailgate suddenly popped open and being so close to the edge, I fell right down into the pit!
Thankfully, the piles of leaves and twigs were high enough that it ended up being a rather clumsy few steps and a jump down. They also made it a bit easier to climb out!
Heart pumping a million beats a minute, my next thought was, “Do I tell Dale that I fell off the edge into the pit?” 🤔 Of course I do…that’s just a hilarious story ⬅️ especially since I didn’t get hurt! 😂🤣🤪
Hope you are having a wonderful Fall without a fall! ⬅️ (admittedly cornet sense of humor).
Enough excuses of why I wasn’t drinking my water, why I wasn’t following the “simple” eating schedule I had been following, why I wasn’t paying attention to all the BLTs (bites, licks and tastes) I had been “treating” myself to, enough feeling scared about the current situation our world is in! So, last Tuesday (1 week ago today) I dialed in my nutrition…I started following my healthy habits:
💦Drinking lots of water 💤 sleeping soundly (minus last night 🤪 Note to self: no major caffeine right before bed) ⏰ eating when I should ✅eating what I should
Not only did I say goodbye to 6.2lbs along with reclaiming all of the above habits, but I am also:
🙋🏼♀️volunteering to help my honey 😍 with farm jobs that give me opportunities for extra movement (picking rocks 🤦🏼♀️) Even my attitude has improved (reference “volunteering” above 😂)
I wanted to share this hoping that it will bring strength and hope to others who struggle. (I apologize ahead of time for the video quality. 😬) I think it’s pretty incredible that my two friends, who have struggled most of their life with an auto immune disorder, were free enough to talk about it.
As you hear in the video, our program is the common denominator in how each of them found hope!
If you are struggling and searching for hope…contact me, let’s have a conversation. Stop wishing for an answer and start asking questions.
I coach clients (who I now call “friends”) from all over. You don’t have to live near me, in fact I’ve never physically met some of my “friends”.
This program is about you! You, helping yourself, along with me as your guide and an amazing support system to lean into.
Feel free to contact me, even if you just want to ask questions.
What a difference when we reduce inflammation…In December/January I was either sitting in a chair, on crutches or hobbling slowly with a very swollen knee.
Since starting this health program my body and mind have changed dramatically.
Yesterday, I was helping load stuff onto the back of the pickup. When done, I hesitated before jumping off of the tailgate (first thought was definitely “No!” I will get hurt). Then I remembered, I and my knees are in better shape now…So, I jumped! I smiled to myself and was doing a mental happy dance, when the young man (maybe late 20’s), still in the pickup box said, “I would have broken my knees if I had jumped off this box!” I said, “I would have too, almost 40lbs ago!” We ended up having a great conversation about inflammation, healthy eating and weight loss.
He is trying to get himself back on a plan (through a different company), that he was previously on, but is struggling to restart. We talked about the mind games that play out in our heads. (*Note: I don’t try to convince people that our program is the only program that works! I support others where they are.) In our conversation I tried to give him some positive support and tips to get started again. I told him that if his current program is working for him, I think that is awesome and I support him! If he doesn’t find that his program is working for him, let me know and we’ll see if we can find one of our programs for him.
He has no idea how good he made me feel and how he solidified my “Why” for becoming a coach…to help and support others where they are in their health journey!
It is not always easy to remember how amazing we are, especially when we aren’t feeling it.
Take a few minutes right now to remind yourself that you are a special part of this world. Even if you don’t realize it, you are an example for others. You might feel invisible but you are not. You are loved, you are special, you are AMAZING!
If you aren’t quite feeling amazing today…fake it until you make it! Yes, I went there!
If your weight, or your unhealthy lifestyle and habits, are bothering you and bringing you down…you can do something about that. Make the choice to be the best AMAZING you!
If you just can’t seem to find a path to weight loss and healthy habits, let us know, send us a direct message…we can help!
Life is too short to be overweight, unhealthy and unhappy (usually because of our weight)!
