Power

If you are frustrated with your health, do not give up. Know that YOU have the power to change your health…and your life. I did

Believe

I understand that I can make my future happen, and I’m a firm believer in manifesting what I desire.

Entitlement

We are absolutely entitled to put into our mouths whatever we desire, but isn’t it great when we have a better idea of which foods are nourishing our bodies and which ones aren’t?

Attitude

Part of the transition has included how I perceive life; seeing the good even where there is bad. I accept that negative thought, because it’s part of who I am. I say what I need to, then I follow with “cancel cancel” to release that thought. Doing so means my whole day is not driven by that negative emotion. Works for me.

Strength

I found strength I didn’t know I had. And the next time life deals me a few bad cards, I know I can call on those reserves again.

Hardiness

Companies with wellness programs see higher rates of productivity, reduced insurance costs, and overall improved stamina and morale among its employees.

Amazement

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to be sure I’m not dreaming. Totally corny to say, I know, but in this job I get to meet the most amazing people.

Movement

When we don’t get enough movement, stress hormones can be a total drag, literally. We feel tired, achy, lethargic, and are more susceptible to illness.

Timing

With a little planning, nutritious, home-cooked meals can happen. Depending on your schedule, aim for at least a couple times during the week, then work your way up from there.
