Live (EAT EXERCISE MEDITATE WAKE UP) like no one else now so later you can live like no one else

It’s not easy to get up a bit early to exercise or meditate or improve yourself in some way, but like Dave Ramsey says about money,“Live like no one else now so later you can live like no one else”.

This morning while coaching my Yogilachi TRANSFORM clients on their day 50 of 101 days, I shared photos of one of the participants. The change is phenomenal. But not unrealistic!

We had a discussion about where we are as a culture and how much we have been intentionally set up to be sick, fat, tired and not ask WHY?

I’m doing Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (again!) and I realized what he talks about with money applies to our health too!

We as a culture have been fed lies that it’s ok to be sick. Just take a pill for it. We’ve been manipulated into thinking it’s normal to be overweight, obese and sedentary. “Just have surgery and take another pill.” It’s this insane instant gratification mentality – “Here buy this to feel better? Oh you don’t have the money, here charge it… “.

No responsibility for your thoughts, emotions or actions- if you don’t like it – just take a pill or charge it or blame somebody else and then go watch reality tv or sTROLL facebook. UGGHHH!! Sorry, there is a DIRECT CAUSE to every EFFECT you have in your life – positive and negative.

At this point though, we can’t afford to continue to be this ignorant (IGNORE ants).

There is a health crisis – not just physical, but mental, emotional and spiritual. The symptoms are you being over weight, symptom of being unmotivated and continuing the same way day after day – sit at your desk all day, get in your car and grab fast food, sit some more. Then go home and plop down in front of the boob tube or your computer or your screen of choice and sit some more.

How can this be even remotely healthy, smart, good for you?

You know, it’s barely 7 weeks and 3 women have completely changed the trajectory of their lives – yes they’re down up to 15 pounds each, dozens of inches. But more than that, they are taking back their power of thought, their thinking about food differently, thinking about what they are doing with their bodies on a daily basis. They are aware of where they spend their time – the most precious commodity. They are aware and making wise choices of where they spend their money – instead of letting the marketing machine control where they put their money.

The results are amazing for these 3 women – and it makes me so proud and honored to support them! But you know what – it also makes me sad, because the ratio is something like 3 in 91 that actually DO something about their health on a daily basis – and NO taking a pill doesn’t fit the bill. It just makes one more billable person to the machine out there.

I believe you can and should be your own best advocate but until you are there, if you’ve read to here then send me an email and let me know you’ve had enough. If you are ready to take back control of your life you CAN!

Here is an upcoming event to support you:

Simple, Delicious Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Fat Frittata

Sometimes it’s hard to make a healthy breakfast. There’s lots of “fast” high carb, processed, packaged options for sure.

But it’s easy to make a better choice with this easy recipe. It’s the perfect balance of quality protein and fresh greens to start your day.

A simple recipe that everyone can enjoy:

Preheat over to 350 degrees

4 eggs and 4 pieces of lean turkey bacon (we use Coleman’s natural turkey bacon) and blend gently in the blender. If you like it more hash like, blend pieces longer. Otherwise you can keep them chunky.

Lightly coat glass baking dish with olive oil

Take a handful of baby spinach (washed and towel dried with stems removed) and place in the dish

Pour the above egg/bacon mixture over the spinach leaves.

Place in oven and bake until no longer runny – if you prefer more crispy leave it in longer.

Should be firm and easy to serve. You can also make these in cupcake pan. Line with olive oil and scoop out once baked.

If you tolerate cheese – you can add cheese for sure. Even sprinkle on top and bake. In fact, this recipe is basic you can add all kinds of goodies like peppers, onions etc.

But the above is our standby and free of most allergens.

Here’s a Simple Trick To Avoid Gaining Extra Weight and Have Healthy Teeth Too!

When I was modeling in NYC (oh about 25 years ago!) I was always on a “diet”.

One of the best tips that helped me to take anxiety off of dieting was to brush and floss my teeth after I would eat.

After 10-12 times of brushing and flossing my teeth I realized I was eating too many times a day.

When you realize you could be snacking without even thinking – this is including sipping on drinks throughout the day as well as “nibbles” here and there from a candy dish, nut dish or whatever is left out or on hand. it adds up. Not only for the waist line but for the mouth.

After a visit with our dentist and one son having high bad bacteria in his mouth and the other nearly none I realized the difference. My youngest with the high bacteria was constantly nibbling and sipping on kombucha or some special concoction of a drink (usually laced with honey) and this would sit on his teeth and the bacteria would thrive.

So moral of the story – eat your meal then close the kitchen, brush your teeth and don’t eat again or drink (except water) until your next meal. Then repeat! That’s it. Pretty simple. Try it out and let me know how it goes!
