You are selling a better life. And you can't put a price tag on that solution. I don't know how to monetize that moment when a mom gets to kiss her kids goodnight instead of working a late night shift at the hospital. I don't know how to monetize the face of your kids at Disney for the first time. I don't know how to monetize waking up from the best sleep of your life with no stress.

Sometimes lying still and being OK with your thoughts, is empowerment. Empowerment is releasing the coulda, shoulda, wouldas, and accepting what's out of your control. Empowerment is getting out of bed when the depression and anxiety tries to paralyze you. Empowerment is eating without guilt or emotion. Empowerment is saying YES to yourself, and NO to the demands of others. Empowerment is asking for help when you need it. Empowerment is looking in the mirror and saying,"I will do my best today.
Because if your health sucks, it all sucks. If your relationships are failing, you don't care about being well. If you're stressed about putting food on the table, you aren't making time for your workout. Money. Love. Work. Confidence.. It's all connected.
I read a statistic that by Jan 15th more than half of people have ALREADY ditched their resolutions. Really? We can't even make it longer than 2 weeks? That's a scary statistic to me, because I see this more than what it is. It's not a moment or fad that passes. It's not "chalk it up to another silly resolution failed." It's lack of discipline.
Does it matter what you eat and when? The answer is absolutely yes! I always knew this. As a nurse, trainer, and nutritionist, I KNEEEEEEEW this. But it didn't mean I always looked after myself and did it. I'm a work-a-holic and a work in progress.
Have you ever felt like you're working SO HARD, yet going NOWHERE? I knew that if I didn't make a change, in my mindset, in my daily actions, in the way I did business, and the way I engaged with my family, I was headed towards burn out, divorce, and re-bound weight gain. I was headed back to where I worked so hard to get out of. So December 30, 2016, Last year on my birthday, I put the pen to paper and answered these 3 questions..
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.
