When we receive messages like this we can’t help but be ever so thankful for the honor of walking along with others on their journey towards healthy mind, healthy body, and healthy finances.
Strangers have become dear friends…and that is yet another blessing that being a Transformational Coach has brought into our lives.
We don’t help people “diet” we walk beside them and support them on their own Transformational Journey.
If you would like someone to walk along and support you on your own Transformational Health Journey…let’s talk.
One day, about 15 years ago, I was in a hurry running errands and didn’t realize I had left my jeans rolled up after tying my boots laces.
As we are walking through one of our last stops…
Dale: (pointing to my pant cuffs and boots) “What’s with this look?”
Me: (looking to where he is pointing) “Oh my gosh!!! You seriously let me walk around in public like this? (quickly straightening my pants while laughing) Why didn’t you tell me sooner?”
Dale: “I figured I’d see how long it took you to notice!” 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Me: “Obviously, never!” 😂😂😂
We still laugh about it to this day.
Fast forward to yesterday…
Me: (pointing to my cuffed pants and boots) “I was just fashionable all those years ago.”
Dale: “Are you sure that’s fashionable now?”
He definitely keeps me laughing!
I always love giving a child a camera to use during celebrations and gatherings. Their perspective is one that we don’t see often as adults.
People tend to loosen up a bit more for a child with a camera vs an adult.
This weekend, my sister got married. 🎊😘
I gave my, 5yr old niece my phone…the photos are priceless.
Note: I don’t like to post photos of others without their permission so you’ll just have to trust me on this. Or, the next time you have a gathering, give a child a camera and set them loose.
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)!
Have an absolutely wonderful day!
Remember: YOU ARE AMAZING!!!
Yet another twist on the peanut butter pancake.
Add French Vanilla Nutpods instead of water to your PB2 powder. Yum!!!
Combine 1 sachet Optavia Silky Peanut Butter Shake, 2 Tbsp water, 2 Tbsp egg whites, 1/8th tsp. baking powder. Mix well and cook in Mini Dash Griddle (or in frying pan) until done.
Combine 1 to 2 Tbsp. PB2 powder combined with Vanilla Nutpods to desired consistency.
I know that it seems impossible, in the middle of negatives thoughts and self berating….but, just try it a few times. You’ll be surprised at how you feel.
We use our Dash Mini Waffle Maker a lot. A friend suggested we try using the griddle instead….Game Changer!!!
Using a Peanut Butter Shake Mix we found that the pancakes are not as dry as the waffles.
Topped this pancake with PB2 mixed with French Vanilla Nut Pods.
This was so yummy…we had it 2 days in a row. Recipe link below.
We didn’t realize how tasty and versatile spaghetti squash was until we started this health journey.
Who can complain about a weight loss plan where you can eat foods like this on a regular basis.
Note: We didn’t use the chili powder (couldn’t locate it in the spice cupboard). It was still delicious and since this was the first time making this dish we didn’t realize it was missing.
Recipe is from Sandy’s Kitchen Adventures.
