What to do…
when the person you thought you’d love forever
makes you sad, manipulates, cannot relate to your desire for growth?
Do you stay when you’ve grown in different directions?
Kids know how to find friends who align with them.
We need to do the same as adults.
You are not a bad person to want joy and alignment.

Who isn’t hoping to find the prized corridor that leads to amazing fitness and freaky weight-loss?
And who doesn’t want the path be moderately convenient: not to impede upon your current schedule and not cause any discomfort?
You can build a house out of the truckloads of diet books on Amazon, yet there’s an obesity epidemic in every town. Reading Browsing the diet books we get for Christmas ain’t gonna do it.
Plus, you and I have different body types. Every body responds a touch differently to exercise and food.
You stand to learn more about YOURSELF and YOUR body when you take the ACTION prescribed in the book.
I wouldn’t say it’s impossible, but I would say I hope you have a workout log. I hope you’re planning to advance-schedule ALL your workouts, log the actual exercises, and track your progress each week.
And if losing 20 pounds in 4 months really matters to you, I suggest you keep a journal and write your feelings. Write your goals. Confront your fears. Confront your feelings.
Because 20 pounds isn’t worth a drop of water. A twenty pound weight change is like finding gold!
You’re gonna need to dig and remain tenacious, focused, and committed.
Look at a snapshot of one of my workout journals. Yep, that’s a page of my DUMP–it’s what I call it when I’m dumping out my feelings. Like clearing out my inner obstacles.
Beside it is the book I’m writing now. It’s a workout log. Plus, more.
For 20 less pounds, my book will help you. It’ll be ready by Earth Day, in time for Spring!
And if it were TRUE, it’d be a rare phenomenon.
Generally, we can go farther and achieve more with support, guidance, coaching, and the elevation of standard we energetically pick up by simply being in the company of folks with similar goals and elevated habits!
A trainer, a teacher, or a friend will give you one or all the above. Peer groups you create in exercise spaces or a meet-up or a Facebook group help.
You NEED accountability!
Go ahead and find people to celebrate you.
Keep up with the Rabbits: people that keep you running at a faster pace of belief and action.
All this is better than trying to do your goals by yourself.
Transform your habits, transform your body.
live above ordinary,
Have you noticed that January is inching along?
It feels like a 7-week month to me. I don’t know why, and I’m not complaining.
I like when time passes slowly. It usually does when we value our time to its full capacity.
Today I’m reviewing 2017 and planting seeds for 2018 in my intimate inner-view book, the journal and log I created to make the most out of my years.
I’ve been using this book since 2013, and I don’t intend to stop.
It’s helped me finish reading a book each month. Yes–finish a book. It’s not easy to set aside time to sit still and actually finish a book these days.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
my intimate inner-view has helped me lean out my wardrobe and throw away/donate clothes I don’t wear–ever–because for some reason I have a habit of stuffing my closet for “someday”.
my intimate inner-view pointed me toward taking online painting classes.
It’s helped me save money.
It’s helped me focus my spending.
It’s helped me structure time to write articles for publication on Curejoy. com, Rebelle Society, and Phoenix Soul magazine.
If you wanna join me for a blast of a 2018-year, get your copy here. I’ve made the price pretty compelling. It’s an easy commitment to make.
And each month I’m gonna post my revelations, reflections, and outcomes on the page above (the my intimate inner-view page on this blog–do you see it up there?).
I want you to post yours too!
I cannot wait to hear about your year!! I can’t wait for you to share.
Share your goals. Achieve them ALL–big and small.
We’ll go from here to DARE together.
They’re gonna be taking down the holiday lights. This is the time of year I could use a birthday or some kind of celebration.
With colder, darker days ahead, I could be inclined to sleep more, drink more, and watch every episode of Dexter.
But I ain’t answerin’.
I’m gonna create.
I plan to use my greatest gift–my imagination–to make this winter and the beginning of 2018 SPLENDID. Now, isn’t that an under appreciated word? SPLENDID.
Let’s not waste it! Use it to create the beginning of your year.
The only time I’ll be burying my head in my television is for the February Olympics.
Life is too frickn amazing to nap away, complain to ashes, or numb with Netflix.
Get your my intimate inner-view book!
This is a creative journal and log to inspire you throughout this sparkling year.
Every year of your life is sacred. Every day of your life matters. Savor your sweet, sparkling life.
The my intimate inner-view book is 98-pages, including an interactive calendar, that will illuminate your realness, keep you focused on small and big goals, and remind you to explore your interests. This year won’t fly by without you noticing what matters deeply.
So listen, I want EVERYONE to experience and remember 2018.
I am offering the my intimate inner-view book as a pay-what-you-want gift!
My friends, look at the menu up top of my blog. Do you see where it says my intimate interview 2018? That’s the page I’ll be posting onto each month while we go through this divine year together.
Once you have your my intimate innerview book, do the 2017 review. It might take you a few weeks to think on and write in your thoughts. Don’t hurry. By February, we’ll get movin’ into the middle.
I’ll post a video on that page up above by Tuesday, January 2! I hope you’ll join me.
Smile! You’re at the best WordPress.com site ever
