Is “Worry Weight” Really What is Making you Fat? You are like, eh! What is worry weight?
Have you ever had that weekend where you thought you had just about eaten everything under the sun, and you were going to suffer the wrath of the Weight Guru (actual name of my scale) come Monday morning? Would that mindless munching and drinking that you did as you binge watched anything on Netflix eventually come home to roost on your thighs… and so on and so forth.
As you have now spent the entire weekend worrying about your weight, you step on the scale on Monday and voila! You’ve gained weight.
After you are done beating yourself up for a weekend eating cauliflower rice, shrimp, lentil chips, kale chips and several 20 ounce cups of water (not wine, juice or soda), you take another look at exactly what you ate. You realized you were barely clocking 1,400 calories a day, (with exercise) and then it dawns on you that you gained weight simply because you were worrying about gaining weight.
The fear and guilt you were feeling had gone ahead and created an extra pound or two where you should, according to the reality of what you ate, and the exercise that you did, have lost at least a half a pound.
Do you know some people go for years worrying their way into a size 18 and staying there? Most times it is not a result of what they actually ate, that is the power of the mind.
Shower Epiphany: Why do people find it so hard to clearly define what they want?
An epiphany (from the ancient Greek ἐπιφάνεια, epiphaneia, “manifestation, striking appearance”) is an experience of sudden and striking realization.
We all have an idea of what we want our lives to be, we kinda know what we want, so why is it so hard to have this vision clearly stated, easily accessible, permanently memorized and readily available to recall at the drop of a hat. (more…)
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
I ran into the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and thought, why not, it is spring cleaning season and it looked like a fun read. Little did I know that the book would change the way I live. Oh what fun!
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, the Japanese art of Decluttering and Organizing is such an easy book to read, the practical applications can be implemented the same day on some of the things she talks about. You will thoroughly enjoy it. Even if you are the tidiest person ever, there a still a few tips here and there that will change the way you organize your stuff. I know this because one of my best friends is the tidiest person on earth and even she sent me pictures of her sock/legging drawer just from a conversation we had about this book.
With the KonMari Method, this is what the author Marie Kondo named her tidying style, Marie wants you to dump everything in the middle of your room and tackle the clutter in one fell swoop. She wants you to sort (more…)
Using the Abraham-Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale
The Abraham-Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale lists a spectrum of emotion from positive
(Joy / Appreciation / Empowered / Freedom / Love( #1)) to super negative (Fear / Depression / Despair / Powerlessness (#22)).
The Emotional Guidance Scale is based on the principle that your emotions are vibrational indicators of your alignment to Source (God). The better you feel, the closer you are in aliment to God. The worse you feel is the indicator that you need to move your behind and do someone to feel better now.
Your emotional vibrations also put you on the frequency you need to manifest the things that you want. Also, I have to let you know that negative emotions also manifest things, so on both ends of the scale, you are manifesting.
Your goal is to keep yourself hovering around emotion 1 to 5 on the scale.
You know the saying, “your now creates your future?” It pretty much means that if you choose to feel like crap now, you are guiding your beautiful boat into miserable waters. If you choose to feel good now, you are guiding your boat to the land of sunshine and lollipops. I always ask myself, “Which one do you want?” That usually snaps me out of my melancholy and helps me pull up myself up the scale.
Let him take care of you. This one is for the ladies, and maybe a reminder for me.
Ladies, we know we can do it all, okay, maybe most of it. It came to me this weekend looking at the couples around me, that strong women (all women, we are all strong and you know it) need to know that it is absolutely okay to allow a man to truly love you and want to take care of you. It is okay.
I met a new husband at the party (this weekend) that has assimilated completely into his wife’s family and culture that I asked more than two people where the heck he was from, and to whom he was related. Thinking of the couple made me think of my friends who are looking for the superhot, easy burn out romance (Oh! to be young again and remake those decisions), and turn away from the slow delicious simmer of “Mr. Right for you”. Okay I have more than one amazing slow simmer couple in mind but you get the gist.
Years ago, I remember talking to a friend, who felt affronted whenever a man tried to open the door for her, I was like, LET HIM!I want us to take a heart defibrillator to that dying horse called Chivalry and resuscitate that darling beautiful creature. (more…)
