Hello ,

Lifestyle changes are exciting, liberating, empowering AND challenging, uncomfortable and hard especially after the honeymoon period.   For me personally and as I work with people to embrace WHOLE health, I see this.  Initial excitement and momentum to choose in and embrace the ways of living that support their health.  As time marches forward (and it always does), the novelty and inspiration can wane, a life challenge happens and old patterns resume.   Creating new patterns that become your new default IS uncomfortable and hard.  

For me as I navigate my personal health challenges, it is an ongoing practice to be present, settle in, choose in to new patterns and have grace with myself when I go down those old pathways.  I trust that if I continue to show up and check in with what it is I say I am committed to, forward movement will ensue.  

The work of healing, elevating and living is not a one and done, it is not something to be buttoned up and brushed off.  It IS a continual practice of curiosity and grace with being human.  My wise sister reminds me that we get to be comfortable with non-closure and to ride the waves as they approach.  

Stay curious! Ease on in..... 🌈


Change is never perfect, nor is it linear,  but when you take a moment to ask yourselves the questions below, you remove yourself from automation, and you step into a life created by the real you. 

ISH Weekend Challenge!

A colleague, life coach and friend of my recently shared the following questions in her newsletter that I want to share with you all on this topic. 

I invite you to take some time this weekend to check in and ask yourself these questions.

Questions I ask myself when I need to polish off the tarnish and remember why I originally committed to a thing in the first place, 

Coaching tip:  Please use these in the next 72 hours (studies show if you don’t use what you learn in 72 hours - you won’t ever use it). 

1. What do I say I’m committed to?  You state your desired goal here

Example. Getting into the best shape of my life. 

2. What am I really committed to? To find the answer to this question, you simply need to look at the results of your actions. Your results will show you what you are committed to. 

Example - I’m more committed to staying the same. I am more committed to believing the thoughts in my head that what I eat doesn’t really matter anyway because I’ll never reach my fitness goal. I’m more committed to believing the story that food is a reward, and that  I deserve whatever I want because this is “me” time. 

3. Am I willing to recommit to what I say that I want instead of committing to the actions above? If yes, restate what you are committed to in step 1 and why the actions in step 2 are not serving you.. If no, ask yourself why. 

Example: I’m committed to getting into the best shape of my life. I do not believe in staying the same. Staying the same would mean I’m living from a past version of myself not from the current or empowered future version. I do not have to believe all  my thoughts. My thoughts are not me - just thoughts, and I have the power to change my thoughts. I do not believe food is a reward. This was something I was taught at an early age, and I’m able to learn new things. 

4. What is ONE thing you can do today to show yourself you are committed to this outcome? 

Example: I am going to pre-plan all of my food and workouts this week. 

When I am recommitting to something that I really desire but my actions are showing me I’m committed to an old way of being, I’ll come back to these questions once a day until I see a change in my actions.
