Wake up!

Wake up with an urge and a fire to do whatever it is that drives you. Take the time to figure it out-what motivates you? What can’t you stop thinking about? What pulls your attention when you’re focusing on the thing that kinda holds your interest? What are you always talking about, daydreaming about, journaling about? 

Stop blaming the choices that you’ve made and saying that’s the reason you are where you are. We ALL have those. So what? 

Some of us decide to quit bitching and start doing. And you can start at any moment. Whatever the fuck you want, you can have. But you have to want it. And you have to eat, sleep, breathe it. No excuses. 

Think about it.

Brain Train

In order to create a different perspective, sometimes you have to completely re-train your brain. If you are always negative, you will need to re-wire your mind to look for the positive.

It may feel fake or forced at first, but having a positive outlook on life makes the journey that much more enjoyable…and makes you more enjoyable to be around, for others.

Worth it!

It’s ok to have a moment, to have bumps in the road, to have the 💩 hit the fan, etc….the thing is, we can’t LIVE there. We can’t succumb to the poop filled moment and give up on life.

Seriously, no one likes a Debbie Downer. Sh*t happens. But come on!
Get it together, put a flippin’ smile on your face and dig your panties out of your butt.

You’re alive!!!

Monday Motivate!

When you decide to make something happen, MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN!

Don’t sit back and wait…
Don’t ask other people who could potentially talk you out of your dreams and goals…
Don’t get sidetracked by stupid sh*t!

Create a plan, a strategy…then light the fire under your ass.

Be inspired, be strong, tunnel vision.

Now go do!!!!

New Day, New Habit

Motivational Mondays here!

According to the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Monday is the day of the week you’re most likely to break a bad habit or start a new, healthy one…So, what will you choose?!

The world is yours my friend…Write your own story.

Happy Monday peeps!

I know you’ve heard the saying “You are what you eat”…Well, to a big extent it is true.

I tell my students and clients to choose food that will nutritionally fuel them. Think of food as gas (no pun intended) like your car. You need good quality gas to get you through your day and feel good.

Junk food and fast food are typically cheap because there is less quality there. It’s a quick fix. Not that you have to spend your life savings and 401k to eat well, but it may cost more in preparation, time, and effort in searching for nutrient rich products.

Your body is the only one you get.
Treat it as such.

More veggies, less fats, limit animal protein (find less fattening proteins like beans), no soda, less sodium, less alcohol, less dessert-more fruit.

That’s nutrition in a nutshell! Nutrition has more depth than this, but you can at least reprogram your thinking and jump start your new goals today.

Benefits: More natural energy, clearer skin, better sleep, stronger bones-hair-nails-teeth, lower body fat percentage, less inches, less weight, less dependency on medications, more muscle tone, a longer and healthier life! How can you resist?!

Don’t! Now go donate the stuff you won’t need any longer and reprogram your fridge and cabinets…

Sometimes you do the best you can and someone will still give you sh*t.

Well you know what?
Tough t*tty…For them.

The only person you can control is yourself and ultimately, the ONLY person you can truly make happy.
It is not selfish to make yourself happy first. Selfish is not caring or showing concern for anyone else. This is not what I am saying to do.

I’m saying, make sure you are happy first. Get your rest, eat healthy, exercise, laugh and spend time nourishing yourself. That way, when you need to nourish someone else (kids, partners, parents, siblings, career, business, education, pets, plants) you have a bountiful energy you can share WITH them as opposed to feeling depleted.

When you take a flight, the attendants tell you to place the oxygen mask on yourself first and then on the child or person next to you. YOU first. You are of no use to anyone if you are depleted or in the flight example, dead.

So, put that oxygen mask on baby.
And if someone or something keeps demanding that you place the mask on them first, before yourself…reassess that relationship.
It may be time to change flights.

Mojo Monday: Rock It!

Sometimes, all you need is to blast your favorite song, dance around and say to yourself “F*ck the bullsh*t!”

Being happy, dancing and exercise produce endorphins and that makes us feel even better.

Life is too short, my friends.
So find that song, rock it out and step away from the B.S.

Sometimes to jump start your fire, you simply need to organize, clean, and sort. The more “together” you feel, the more efficiently you can work.

Instead of a cluttered desk, take a moment to sort. Lower your organizational frustrations by allowing your “self” and your “space” to be CLEAR.

Label things
Sort things
Categorize things

The quicker you can find an item, the less wasted time searching!

Your space and your mind will feel less frazzled and more in control.

And THAT looks good on ya kid 😉
