A thought for the beach...

"I have learned that sometimes when we feel depleted, being all alone with nature is one of our spirit's very best therapies. Be sure to go barefoot, and let your feet feel the earth ... get back in touch with the "source" by actually feeling it with your skin. Native American faith teaches us that the invention of shoes and chairs was the first barrier between us and nature that separated man's spirit from the earth and when we experience the feeling of our bare skin on the ground it has enormous power to heal us. So if you head to the beach today, be sure to let the warm sand and the sound of the ocean work their amazing magic." - Cindy Williams

Thankyou Cindy!  Find Cindy Williams, Health Coach, in Tucson, Arizona, on Facebook...

Let's ban this word: CARBS

Bit of a red-cape moment here- meaning, rallying against something to achieve an outcome.  The Law of Attraction tells us that through angst, comes clarity.  Through loss, lack or frustration, we are aware of what we truly want.  So here's me streaming to clarity, from frustration, for the people I've met who are frightened and misinformed about one little word, "Carbs".

1.  There is no such word as "Carbs".  Carbs is a made up, scare-mongering media/sales-oriented word that places everything from carrots and corn to potatoes and pasta, rice, bread, bagels, cookies, ice-cream, spaghetti bolognese, lamb roast all in the same basket.  Why, just today, different clients have told me that 1. steak, and, 2.  salad  (mostly, lettuce and avocado), are big "carb" foods!  It seems the word "Carbs" is given to just about any food the media touts as "Unhealthy"!

2.  Just a reminder.  All foods contain carbohydrate.  Carbohydrate is the fuel our bodies and especially our brain works best at running on.

3.  If you want to Be smart.  Be fast.  Be funny.  You'll need carbohydrates.  And you certainly want to make good decisions on the types of carbohydrates you choose.  

Carbohydrates are sugar.  It's true.  But there's so many types- lactose, from dairy;  fructose, from fruit; cellulose, from fibre.. the list goes on.  And the body metabolises each of these differently.  Some assist weight gain; whilst others can promote weight loss.

  If you want to be well informed with which choice of carbohydrates will make your body look and feel great, here's a longer explanation ; and print yourself out a copy of the GI index!  If you are confused about the C word, it can help navigate your way through.

Vegetables and meat contain very little carbohydrate but fibre and protein, which positively affects the body's absorption of the sugars they do contain.To say a vegetable is a carbohydrate is like saying an egg is a chicken.  There are components of similarity; but it's in no way an accurate or healthy understanding.

I hope the links above can help detox your world from that dreaded word! I've got lots more to share with you on healthy ways to achieve your body goals!  Please email me for a free initial health coaching session.

Beautify your home for Weight-loss

Have you been drawn to Marianne Williamson's newest book, "A Course in Weight-Loss"? 

I am making my way, delicate bite by bite, through it-  it's deep reading, often throwing up a mirror to parts of oneself not often looked at, and that's why I was so delighted to find and to share with you a wonderful article here which interviewed Marianne in her sacred home in LA, and put into chewable chunks some of the wonderful points her book enlightens us on.

From it, I've pulled 3 questions we can all ask ourselves to uncover where our weight-loss efforts may be being self-sabotaged.  Read on- do any resonate with you?

1.  Do you have a space in your home dedicated to self-love?                                                                                                        "As Williamson writes, "Darn right you're hungry, but not for food."  Think of all the time spent idling in the kitchen with nervous energy, browsing through the refrigerator. Why not replace that ritual by visiting a space devoted to self-love? With an altar devoted to love and comfort, you have a place to reflect and address your emotions, rather than quiet them by overeating.

It's almost like replacing comfort food with comfort objects -- looking to an inherited lamp or plate, rather than a recipe, to remind you that you're not alone..."

2.  Does the food you choose, reflect the inner beauty that is You?                                                                                           "Beauty in food is no different than beauty on my coffee table," says Williamson. 
"A lot of these unhealthy, chemically-processed foods, they're not beautiful," she says. "The packaging might be beautiful, 
but when you think about what's in them and how they affect your body... there's no beauty there." going on to say-

"I am as endangered by the presence of too many carbs and chemically-processed foods as anyone," she says. So she's careful to keep these items out of sight and out of mind."

3.  How valuable is this mouthful to you?
"There were times in my life when I would look at some food in my home and say 'I can't throw it out, someone spent good money on that!' But if its really bad for you, the idea that there's something good in indulging in it -- it's kind of insane thinking," she says. "Yes, someone may have paid a lot for those sweets. But, well, you're going to pay a lot if you indulge. You pay with your health."
While going through the contents of your refrigerator or cabinets, ask yourself Williamson's question: "Was buying this an act of self love?" If the answer is no, you know where to throw it."

Pretty... but hardly helpful for willpower!  Body's cravings are strong and natural desires, but can be
minimised by keeping carbohydrate-loaded foods out of sight & mind.

This week, consider for yourself...
1.  Do you have a space in your home dedicated to self-love? 
2.  Does the food you choose, reflect the inner beauty that is You?
3.  How valuable is this mouthful to you?

The Places you'll go! on a Saturday morning

oooh I love Dr Seuss, don't you?  Remember these words of encouragement?

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You’ll look up and down streets. 
Look’em over with care. 
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.” 

With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you’re too smart to go down a not-so-good street!

And you may not find any you’ll want to go down. 
In that case, of course, you’ll head straight out of town. It’s opener there in the wide open air.

Out there things can happen and frequently do 
to people as brainy and footsy as you.

And when things start to happen, don’t worry. Don’t stew. 
Just go right along. You’ll start happening too.
Oh! The Places You’ll Go!"

You can find the full version of Dr. Seuss' "oh!  The Places You'll go!"  here.
It's a heart-warming, tear jerking read, especially if you've lived a little...

Speaking of lived a little...
Beautiful blog posts I've been inspired by on this windy, trashy Saturday am by the sea...

~*~ blissful sigh at these purely lovely bloggers and their thoughts! ~*~ hope you enjoy, too.

Where are you "off to" this weekend?

Proud of my British Fruit Loop

Happy Sunday, beautifuls!  We are getting ready for a traditional British lunch at the home of Lady Elegant & Mr Pour-the-Wine, Would You Dear?  Husby is so excited he already has his best shirt on, even though he must finish 2 handy-jobs before we stroll to the home of our hosts.  My husband loves Lady Elegant's trifle and has not tasted it in 2 years as both parties travel so much.

I posted the picture above because I'm incredibly proud of Husby at this time.  He's truly become a Fruit Loop in a world of Cheerios.  For a month or more now; for breakfast and for snacks, he's choosing fresh fruit and natural yoghurt + raw nuts.  Cutting down on sugar, shunning processed foods in favour of our favourite lunch- bean sprouts dressed in sesame and soy and more green veg than you can fit in a bowl.  Committed to supplements and knowledgeable about the benefits they are offering him.  Together I am loving so much the time we spend exercising together and his passion for fresh, natural, local and organic! 

Just this week we got a result back from the hospital that shows a 21% improvement for him- 12 months ago, it was below par by 4%; now, he's better than the average by a huge margin of 11%!! 

We are so excited and I am very proud.  Alot of his lifestyle improvements have followed my own, inspired by  my studies at IIN and I can't recommend the school highly enough to people committed to a career in health.

Husby is still salivating over Lady Elegant's trifle... not long now...
Her own husband is diabetic and well with it; I'm sure our lovely hostess has some healthy eating tips herself up her sleeves.  Stay tuned!

Welcome, July! with the Superhero Walk

I'll never forget my first experience of the Superhero Walk as a awe-inspired witness and participant at one of Tony Robbin's Unleash the Power Within weekends in Sydney.  I'm going to share this great technique with you in a moment, because it is an AMAZING way to start your day... so what better way for YOU to start your July!

Isn't it amazing how when one GREAT thing happens to you, life spirals upwards?  Yesterday; life was charmed.  After a cuppa with an inspiring friend, I got a great phone call, a wolf-whistle walking down the street, half-price on fresh summer raspberries at the co-op, and arrived back home to a fragrant kitchen filled with the smell of a loving lunch made for me.  

If you want to start your life spiralling upwards right now, grab a moment now to do the Superhero Walk.  Stand up, shake your body.  Now imagine tied around your shoulders a magical superhero cape- YOURS.  This cape turns you into the best version of unstoppable, uninvincible you.  Take a moment now to feel the weight of it... get a sense of the fabric, the colour, the sound of it swishing about your back; the magic it fills you with.  Feel the inspiration, ideas, charm, and power!  Now, walk with your cape.  Only... you won't be walking.  You'll be striding, strutting, gliding, parading.  Really sink the feeling of power and purpose deep inside, as you become the persona of your own Superhero.

TRY it now.  You'll be amazed how this one great thing... sends your life spiralling upwards.  Also, it's a brand new moon- start your new habit of feeling great everyday, today!

Happy July!  May it be an amazing month of personal power, health and happiness for you!
