Challenge Group Coming up Aug 24th-Oct2nd

 

****I was tempted to cancel this challenge due to the death of my father but I decided to go on with it.  Frankly, I need the accountability and we were fortunate enough to have Sandi Atmore, Grief Recovery Specialist on board to help us unpack some emotional issues.  Grief is so much more than just death.  Any kind of loss brings grief.  Divorce, loss of a job, a big move, loss of relationship, etc…So if you want to know more about the topic and get accountability for diet, exercise, and feelings, then sign up today.  Spots are limited!

We’re down to the final stretch!  I can’t believe fall is right around the corner.  Some kids have already gone back to school and 2013 has flown by!  Let me ask you a question???  When was the last time you thought about your New Years resolution?  Yeah, that’s what I thought. :)   Most people will look at the calendar and say, “I’ll just start fresh next year!”  Don’t be like most people!  Start now! I want you to have a sense of accomplishment that you reached your fitness goal.  It’s not too late and I’m here to help you!

It is so worth the fight you guys!  I’m not only coaching this program but I have a real life testimony from doing this program.  I have lost weight, gotten stronger, changed bad habits, have gotten a healthier perspective and have been so blown away by exceeding my own expectations.  I have always struggled with wanting shortcuts and quick results.  The TRUTH is that true change will only come with hard work and discipline.  If I can do it, so can you!!!  I love you guys and I believe in you.  Let’s do this!!!

 

 

Much Love,

The Show Must Go On!!!

“The show must go on!” Having been in the entertainment industry, I know this mantra all too well.  I’ve “performed” while deathly ill, danced on a severely sprained ankle, danced while hung over, danced while I was nursing a broken heart, and many other scenarios I’m sure.  One thing was certain, I would put my make up on and smile pretty for the camera, or the live audience or whatever it was I was doing at the time.  Many times, dance was a great escape.  It was a reason to suck it up and shut off any emotion I might be feeling.  So, I trained myself not only in my professional life but in my real life to just smile and not deal.  I lived most of my life in this dissociative place.

 

So here I am now, no longer dancing for the cameras but trying to live my life as authentically as I can.  I’m on a journey to self discovery and what I’m learning is that we all desire intimacy.  I heard somewhere that intimacy stands for “into me see”.  To be secure enough to be known in our deepest core and to be loved is what we really want.  For someone to love us warts and all.  I believe we have to get that security from our Creator.  We can’t live it if we don’t feel it.  I believe it’s what each and every single person desires in this world.  To be seen and to be loved.  I am working on something really special right now.  My dad’s passing has fueled my fire and has pushed me off the ledge to finally make this happen.  I’m really excited about it but I can’t give you any details yet.  Stay tuned.

So, as I grieve honestly, I cry when I need to and I laugh without guilt.  Authentic living is to be free to feel.  I’m an isolator by nature.  When I first heard the news of my Dad’s passing I immediately dropped everything, ran upstairs and locked myself in the closet, cried, and prayed.  I have been very tempted to just take off and be alone but in the deepest core of my being, I don’t want to be alone.  I want to be surrounded by love, life, and laughter.  I want to be reminded that I’m still here and my mission is not finished.  I cry with my kids because I want them to see what grief looks like for me.  It’s not about sucking it up and being “strong” but being able to fall apart and allow others to give to me.  That takes being vulnerable to allow others to see me in my weakness.  I keep telling myself that even though this is my time to grieve, I have a responsibility to teach my kids by my example.  This is truly a journey and everything in life was meant to be felt.  We can’t have the joys without the heartache.  I try to remind myself that it’s a good thing.  It means I have a pulse.  As I go through this challenging time, I’m reminded by this amazing quote….

Thanks for listening.  This is therapeutic for me.  I wrestled with whether or not I should go on with my next online challenge group.  August 24th to October 2nd.  I decided to go ahead with it because ironically, one of the topics we’ll be discussing is how to deal with emotional eating and dealing with triggers.  I also have a special guest joining us.  We will have Sandi Atmore, a Grief Recovery counselor on board to help us unpack these issues and give us practical advice on how to deal in a healthy way.  Space is limited.  RSVP today.  Spread the word.  Would love to do this challenge with you.  Sign up here.

Life is a Balancing Act!

Hello Friends!
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  I’ve been quite busy trying to settle in a new city, then our family took an emergency trip to see my ailing father in the Philippines.  We were gone for almost a month and now we’re back trying to get in the groove.

Here we are visiting my Daddy.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of balancing my life.  It’s so easy for me to get obsessed with one area of my life and neglect everything else.  One thing about moving to Austin is that I’ve been able to let some things go from my life.  Number one, my stress factor has gone down just from not having to deal with LA traffic! LOL!  Also, I think the environment that I have been a part of my whole life has been to focus on the exterior.  Growing up close to Hollywood and being in the business, you become conditioned to a certain standard.  I’m not down on anyone, but for me, it’s been a little freeing not having to obsess about my weight, what I’m eating, how much I’m working out, etc…  I have to practice what I preach and that’s to live my life in a balanced way.  When you start to grasp the frailty of life, you really start to see what’s important.

Another area that is important to me are relationships.  I think that focusing on building and mending relationships are just as important as trying to get healthy.  It pains me to see “experts” in success, relationships, life coaching, etc…that are failing in their relationships.  I know a woman who is a life coach and she is so unhappy!  She’s given up on relationships and struggles with depression and is on medication.  I know a few others who are divorced and yet are teaching on how to have healthy relationships.  There’s no question that these people are “qualified” and have all kinds of credentials but for me, I’m much more impressed by someone’s example than the letters after their name.

So, for me, in this time of my life, I’m focused on being a great wife, a great mom, a great friend to many, a great coach and trainer, a person who lives a healthy lifestyle, and trying to be a great example.  Actually, I live my life as an example of what not to do sometimes!  I got in to the health and fitness industry not because I was a perfect picture of health but because my body was falling apart and I had to rebuild it.  My marriage is the best it’s ever been not because we’re perfect but because we’ve been through hell and back and have lived to tell about it.  I work out and teach fitness classes but I’m not afraid to live a little.  We went to National Cheesecake Day yesterday and I enjoyed a yummy, gluten free cheesecake guilt free!  I didn’t work out today and I don’t feel bad about it.  My point is, life is a lot more than being perfect and doing everything right.  Just take a deep breath and give yourself permission to be yourself.  Sometimes, we have to get to know ourselves.  It takes time.  It’s OK.  There’s no hurry.  Enjoy the journey.  Love the journey!  It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

****We have a new challenge group starting Aug. 24th to Oct. 2nd
We will be looking at what a balanced life looks like for you and how to overcome emotional eating.
