My Ready For 2017 Breakthrough
& Ready to Sparkle Day
My husband is like a rock, steadfast and strong, he is a wonderful hard worker, and he actually loves working for a solid company and being a team player, and being an encourager to those around him at work.
He is awesome!
Me, I want to see women just like you have the breakthrough you have been looking for in health, fitness, spiritually and business.
I am a total entrepreneur, I love personal development, I love learning and I love hanging out with positive people, and I LOVE JESUS.
In 2016 I realized I was a workaholic and I was so stressed out – mostly trying to meet the demands I had put on myself.
In late October, I had a breakthrough, one of many I have had during my educational experience at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
I was on a group coaching call with my Institute for Integrative Nutrition team and I realized I had spent so much time focusing on food and work, and not focusing on the real problem.
- My emotional needs.
- Not enough fun in my life.
- My relationships.
I decided to make creating more joy in my life, my intention, and I did.
My results …
I stopped working massive hours and STOPPED doing a lot of things that were not serving me, my family or my business.
I FOCUSED ON JOY and found that when I was working in a space of being JOYFUL I was able to accomplish more.
It was crazy, because some tasks I had been trying to accomplish for months, even years I completed in 15 minutes!!!
Oh, Did I forget to mention, I HIRED a Business Coach, back in October, I am sure that had a lot to do with my success.
What Does This Have To Do With Breakthrough & Sparkle?
Well, I had a major BREAKTHROUGH on Thanksgiving!
Traditionally, we spend holiday time with my family, and my husbands family, this can be stressful, and include a lot food.
I ate two Thanksgiving dinners, and believe me it was STRESSFUL, probably one the most stressful Thanksgivings EVER, but I did not over eat, I did not need to I had found FREEDOM FROM FOOD!
I did not emotional eat!
I did not have to unbuckle my pants.
I did not feel sick because I ate too much!
Sometimes Miracles Happen In the Midst of Tears
I had a miracle breakthrough even in the stressful family situation I was facing, even as I wanted to break down and cry, I did not turn to food for comfort, and that was a miracle breakthrough for me.
And as a side note: Thanksgiving is always difficult because I lost my dad to cancer on Thanksgiving.
My Thanksgiving Strategy
- Letting go of all the stress … that I no longer need in my life.
- Choosing only the food that I wanted, taking small portions and enjoying each bite.
- I did not even finish my plate, which I felt a little weird about, but I took it to the sink and composted the waste.
- Knowing that I am worth more than the food that is on my plate.
And today, the day after Thanksgiving, I am choosing to Sparkle because I WAS Created for something more.
