Keep Trying!!! ❤️

Self love is the reflection you see when you look at me. It took LIFE lessons to get to this realization of where I am today. God has blessed me with an open heart and understanding of what life has in store for me. And i will not settle for less than I deserve and I am going for and attracting what is meant for me. The GLOWup is OH SO REAL. I encourage Everyone to do the same life is too short to settle and not go for what is best for you. #BetterQualityOfLife is the goal. #LiveLifeDontLetLifeLiveYou #TheMoto

Hey! Don’t think too much! Just take a break and relax. Enjoy the weekend!

Yes!!!

Studies show that eating foods rich in monounsaturated fatty acids improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease. Research also shows that these fatty acids may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be especially helpful if you have type 2 diabetes. #sourcemayoclinic #nutritionfacts #choosewisely #living2inspire🙌 #healthylifestyle #betterqualityoflife

So, answering the question on my FB profile photo.....
Being honest, I've been living a huge chunk of my life in fear..... All kinds of it, unfounded, primal, realistic, etc......
Fear has influenced many of my acts and decisions in life. It has added pressure and stress to my thinking, my every day interactions and my physical body.
Fear has had its positive sides too, as of keeping me aware of my lifestyle choices. As of helping me observe its effects on me and the world, ways to cope with it.... and choices available to embrace it.....
Fear has been my at times silent, at times noisy companion..... It's imprinted somewhere in my subtle body.... My awareness, free will and love are my allies here.
Fighting it is not an option... just as fighting anything.... Fear has been my tireless teacher of acceptance and forgiveness.... It is not a "monster under my bed" anymore. It's a "family member".
I've talked to suicidal people, who, as you might know, disguise themselves quite well in the crowd. And I learned something important from them:
"The thought about 'leaving' has always been on the back of my mind. I know it's there, it doesn't bug me anymore. I got used to it. 'Taking my life' in order to stop it has been a possibility for me for permanent relief. But then, oddly enough, Life distracts me from that thinking and I realize, gosh, I have so much to do! To busy to suicide today."
Acceptance of what is, in order to have a better quality of life. This is the lesson.
Like my friend Nina once said: "You know, there are people who live with diabetes, others who live with the hip replacement, etc.. And you live with the fear/anxiety. Accept it and be grateful for it. This is YOUR life. Just live it."

Diane’s Story, “I was very fit but always overweight. I spent 10-14 hrs a week at the gym doing multiple fitness classes and weight lifting however at 5'4" I could never get to my healthy BMI of 140lbs or less. I couldn't get below 152 lbs at my lowest and more likely around 165 and size 12/14. After my journey with this program, I got down to 131 lbs and lost a total of 36lbs and I am wearing a size 6. And more importantly I had high cholesterol for many years above 243. I was able to lower my cholesterol to 190 and I am beyond thrilled. Also for me I had really bad self esteem issues and I feel so much better about myself and realize that cardiovascular health and getting to the gym is an important healthy habit however it is all about balance and learning how to eat frequently to maintain a healthy weight. No more yo-yo diets, its all about creating Healthy Habits for a lifetime!”

Brandie J. - My husband, Michael and myself were 40+ lbs overweight and facing serious health problems because of our habits, genetics and by our own unhealthy choices. We knew something had to be done. Scared that being "healthy" was going to put a damper on our lively social lives and gatherings with friends, we were hesitant. But soon learned that choosing to change our lifestyle didn't change our friendships, but made them stronger. Now our friends and family are choosing health and eradicating disease! Mike took off and has maintained a 48 lb. weight loss, and I took off and have maintained a 43 lb. weight loss. Both have gained many years of life with their kids, family and friends!

Stay flexible and healthy! And if Tuesday and Thursday are busy days, there are 4 other possible days to tackle your health and stay on track! .

Healthy spine-healthy mind.
Stay healthy into your later years! Flexible, mobile, stable, in control!! #healthylifestyle #chiropracticworks #chiropracticcare #chiropracticlifestyle #whatareyoudoingtolivehealthier #betterqualityoflife

Life can be overwhelming at times and it seems that at times everything can happen at once and it can swallows your soûl. .
We get consumed by society and forget who we are and what we a here to serve for. .
If we focus only on what matters the most and let the others things that i call distractions have their time only on your terms, every day will get better ... you will be doing YOU 💗.
.
Be different, be the one that goes first, be weird and genuine ....it’s ok! We are all unique yet society creates and image that makes us all want to be the same. .
Life is all about creating you own chapters.... nobody would want to read the same book over and over for the rest of their life, so i urge you to be you. Authenticity is beauty ❤️
