Kale is where it's at!  Delicious ideas for recipes with kale! Anytime I get a little off track (hello, holiday cookies!) I always go back to kale! It’s so awesome for weight loss and getting my mind and body back on track!

 The real reason that some people are bad for you. Absolutely LOVED this. When you think about it this way everything shifts!

 Jane Says: If You Believe in Science, Don’t Go Paleo. “The logical basis for the diet of the moment ignores both evolution and anthropology.” I found this interesting. I am not for or against paleo…some of my recipes are paleo and many of them are not. In my personal experience it’s always say it’s most important to go with what makes you FEEL good. You don’t have to follow food dogma, instead use these diets as information and then apply according to what makes you feel your best. I am 100% omnivore and I’ve learned what foods work best and what food combinations don’t serve me, labels don’t have anything to do with it!

 This Solstice Reflection Bath sounds LOVELY! I love the idea of taking time to pause & pamper ourselves through the changing seasons!

 How I lost 30 pounds through yoga & never saw them again, with embarrassing “before” picture. I loved this and really related to it in many ways, especially the “verbal messages” and “cleansings”.

You are LOVE

 I have been listening to Oprah and Ekhart Tolle’s A New Earth book class for free on YouTube. It’s so interesting, I read the book and watched these videos when they first aired in 2008 and am judt totally blown away again. I love this perspective and they way these teachings make me shift my focus. The holidays and New Year can be a challenging time and these videos leave me feeling so much more centered and at peace. Thankful they are available for free for all of us!

 Five Ways To Never Be Stressed Again “And slowly, very slowly, I trained myself to watch my thoughts, my perceptions, and when a stressful thought came into my head, I stopped, took a deep breath, and just let go. It’s like a muscle—it gets stronger the more you use it, but if you let go, it relaxes.”

 24 Invaluable Skills To Learn For Free Online This Year

 I love this Doctors Are Now Prescribing Books to Treat Depression As someone who was put on antidepressants for two years in my early 20’s, I WISH someone would have just handed me a self help book. I know everyone is very different but for me, numbing out on prescription drugs for 2 years only made matters worse. When I read my first self help book Succulent Wild Woman, it was like a light bulb went off in my head and I realized that my feelings were coming from a very real place and that by consciously changing my thinking, I could start to heal myself. I’ve been a self proclaimed self-help junkie ever since and I love it! No medication needed!

 Wonderful, wonderful article Anti-Diet Project: No One Is Cute On The StairMaster

It wasn’t so much of an “ah-ha” moment, but rather a one of “enough already.” Enough with this needless locker-room shaming, which only exists in my head anyway. There will always be the fitness princesses wearing gym-couture on the StairMaster, breaking a delicate glow of perspiration across their alabaster brows. But, I know their sneakers stink up the gym bag as much as anyone’s. 

Last year, I interviewed Tracy Anderson, who told me the most common things she hears from women is that they need to get in shape before they come to her gym. They’re scared that they’ll look shabby, and they won’t be able to keep up with the celebrity clientele. “It’s crazy to me!”, said the master craftsman of Gwyneth’s own butt. In that moment, I nodded in agreement, sucking in my gut so hard my face turned red — so crazy. 

There are so many real things to worry about when you’re fighting this battle with body image. You’re already dealing with the nasty voices inside of you, echoing off the tile walls of your 7th-grade locker room. Don’t project those voices onto everyone else in your grown-ass woman gym, because, in fact, they’re not here to stare at you in silent judgement — they’re just trying to get their cardio in, too. Just get in there and get in your zone. Stop hiding, keep your head up, and look around. I’ll be the one with the tomato face, rocking the treadmill in a Les Mis t-shirt. 

 GOODBYE 2013. HELLO 2014. Loved this reflection of the past year from Connie Chapman. Especially where she states “Wow, I feel like I spent about 90% of last year living outside my comfort zone but it was such a thrilling and amazing experience. This has not been an easy journey, but it was the best thing I ever did and I am so grateful for every second of it.” Amen sister!!

Live it.

New Audio: Fear and Weight Loss

You are powerful beyond measure You were born to SHINE  New Audio is up on the blog: Fear & Weight Loss - Have a listen during your work commute, workout, or anywhere on the go!

Today we’re talking about Fear: how it affects our weight loss, self esteem, and how to overcome it!!

In all honesty, I debated posting this because the audio gets quite scattered at the end…I kind of start rambling…BUT in the spirit of releasing my own fears, I decided that if there is enough good information to help just one person who is struggling with fear, procrastination, and feeling stuck, then it’s worth it, even if the audio is not perfect! As always, please share your comments with me so that I know what questions you have and if you would like more of these audios!

You can hear all of my audios anywhere with the SoundCloud mobile app Available on the Apple App Store or Get it on Google Play.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what fears you are dealing with? What are your core desired feelings? I’m interested to see if ours sync up!
