SoI have a confession to make. I've been doing shots before my meals everyday. Work days, holidays, weekends, morning, noon, night... SHOTS! And the best part, I've been releasing weight, and absorbing food better. This drink only costs a couple bucks and can last for months. And you know when something works for me, I HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT!
Some days get the best of me. So I make mountains out of molehills. Or my temper fires inside, especially when we don't hit deadlines or technology doesn't cooperate. But the first step to any change is not running away. Facing our quirks, and hot buttons, and emotions.
A broken mind and heart housed in a fit body leads to a life of emptiness. I started to think about the three roles that I've played in my past. Three roles that maybe we've all played, when life gets the best of us.
Did you know your outer skin cells shred and re-grow every 27 days? Your body builds itself back up with what you eat and drink. SO yes, literally, you are what you eat.
I recently caught a glimpse of myself in new camera light as I was filming online videos with a professional. And what I saw shocked me. Lines around my eyes, forehead creases, frown lines. Roads of expressions mapped out on my face. Where I've been, emotions I've experienced. Love. Loss. Anger. Freedom.
I royally messed up my body. I royally tanked my metabolism. Yes, I lost about 60lbs, but became scale obsessed, and if I strayed from my restrictive meal plan, I gained weight. A SHIT TON of weight. This, my friends, is what led me down the path of creating my OWN macro plan. One with balance, AND CARBS, and ALCOHOL, and enjoyment, and living life. One that healed my body, not hurt my body.
I lied. I told a little white one, while sitting on a big blue couch in front of a Television Camera on a Tuesday morning. It was my monthly segment as an Expert Health and Fitness Host on our local TV network, and we were discussing my Break the Mould: Become Fit, Fierce, and Fearless in the Life You Deserve Book. "I'm being picked up by Chapters now!" Excitedly spat out of my mouth. Part of that was true, part of that maybe not so much.
As a mom, a wife and a coach, a trainer, and a nurse, it is in my DNA to give to everybody else first. Once I mastered my time, I mastered my mindset, I mastered my health. I had less anxiety. I had less worry. I had less negative thoughts. I had less desire to control every single situation.
