To Journal or Not to Journal . . . Tis the Question

Have you ever seen that 1995 movie Clueless with Alicia Silverstone?  That was me when it came to nutrition.  “Is there a Problem here?”

I didn’t think so but there definitely was.  I never slowed down to notice.

Tony Robbins & Emotions . . . Don’t let them define you!

Did you know there are over 200 emotions people could feel? My friend Molly was kind enough to give me a vocabulary list of feelings broken down in the following categories:

  • Happy
  • Sad
  • Angry
  • Scared
  • Confused

Every couple years I listen to Tony Robbin’s Get The Edge series. I decided to do that yesterday.

The homework for Personal Power Day 1 was to choose two actions & take action on them. Read more

Definitely me a year ago.  Closing that door has opened so many new ones and I’m excited at how many changes I’ve made and continue to make.

I find it ironic that when I was so depressed, anxious, and frustrated; crying every day; and moving further and further into my own work world … I could not break free from the comfort that was my work life.  But when I walked out that door, it was like a burden was lifted and I could think clearly.  No more tears … only smiles.  No more frustration … only calmness.  My mind was free and my thinking was clearer which lead me to living again.  I found my true passion for what I was meant to do with my life.

My man TR (Tony Robbins) once told a story . . .

[I’m pharaphasing]  About a guy (I’ll call him Billy Bob Joe) on a train who was aggravated when several children were yelling, jumping, being rowdy while their father just sat there; stared into space; and did not try to control them.  Billy Bob Joe finally said to the father “hey why don’t you do something about your children?”  The father shook his head dazed and replied “Oh sorry.  They don’t know how to act right now.  Um . . . You see their mother just died and we just came from her funeral.”  Billy Bob Joe felt terrible because he had no clue what the underlying circumstances were. Read more

Sunday, November 1st . . . my flight to Vegas

What did I do on my flight to Vegas.  The same thing I do every day… learn!

As my learning year continues, I caught up on my emails; various articles videos from Girls Gone Strong and Precision Nutrition; and Body Type Nutrition webinars and notes.  What did I learn… that I have so much to learn.  At 51 I’m learning everything I can on health, fitness & nutrition and loving every minute of it.

Tony Robbins taught me how powerful an incantation can be…

People who know me know that I listen to #2 Move & Breathe #3 Get Grateful & Visualize and #4 Use Incantations from the audio Hour of Power by my man TR while I warm-up before exercising.  My favorite incantations “All I Need is Within me Now” or Every Day in Every Way I’m Getting Stronger and Stronger!”  Even my DH Scott, trainer and Physical Therapist Dr. Steve know to not interrupt as I get into that zone or to tread lightly.  lol

The reason I bring this up is because I watched a video two times yesterday and once this morning where they discussed mantras women have (although I’ve been learning lately it’s not just women).  It talked about replacing those negative mantras with positive mantras.

What is your mantra or mantras?  What do you tell yourself daily that negatively impacts the goals you are trying to achieve?  I know I will be adding two new mantras to my toolbox and they are (1) Feed, Breathe, Relax because I am enough! and (2) I am proud to be an Alloy “Stronger Together” kinda Girl!

This video hit home with me and I could go on for hours about it but the other big point it made to me is . . . What is your gift?  What do you hold back because of your negatives mantras?  I was reminded of it this week by my trainer & mentor.  I have the gift of gab.  Well he didn’t put it that way but that’s what it is basically.  I have my journey to share because my journey is so much like others it blows my mind.  But that is for another day…

For now watch the video . . . I promise it’ll be worth your time!  click here ====>>

Until next time . . .
