What a Difference A Year Makes

What difference will you see in a year of committing to health?

A year ago my husband, daughter and I went to our favorite farm, Fall City Farms, to get our pumpkins for the house. I took a picture with my daughter. I posted it to Facebook of course, and then didn't think about it again... until this week.

I looked again at the picture when added this year's pictures to my album and could hardly believe the changes. Let me say that lately I haven't been feeling like I was seeing any differences at all. I feel good, I'm working out, but that is it. Nothing that I can say is AMAZING.

So then I look at the difference in this picture. That's why I always tell my clients to take your pictures. Pictures don't lie the way the scale does. Also measurements don't lie. So take those measurements. I know that a lot started with doing the 21 Day program. I have to admit that I have been a cardio junkie in the past, and I'm also a bit of a hoarder. When you commit to the 21 Days, it can be HARD. Really hard. A lot of emotions come up and you don't know if you can do. It's easy to cheat yourself, just like in anything in life. It's easy to cheat and just eat the cookie, or add in meat. And for me, with my allergies, I had to figure out the comparable foods before I even got started with the program. So I already had a negative attitude going in, and a fear. What if not working out for 21 days gives me the feeling that I don't have to work out anymore?. What if it breaks the cycle?

That didn't happen. Instead it started a "clutter cleaning" of my house, my garage {remember I've moved 3 times in the last year and a half and I still had boxes that were packed up from three years ago when our house buyers didn't show up to closing} is looking lean and ready for another car... LOL... I have my eye on one. My budget is on track. I have a savings for the first time in years. I'm paying down debt and building up my business. It was more than an internal body cleanse, it was a brain fog detox. Since then my entire life, including how I workout has change, and it shows. So don't give up, and don't think that a year won't make a difference. I promise you that if you commit and go through the process, it will change for you.

For those not ready for 21 Days I started two programs. First was the Well + Joy Reset. It is just five days of committed wellness, and if you can keep your weekend to just a treat if you really need one, you can go back in for another five days and follow this idea until you hit your goal. Or you can start simple with my Holistic Food Basics Educational program. I am working on bringing it to video to make it more connective to your memory pathways.

You don't have to become a Vegan bodybuilder or even Vegan at all... but if you do the Reset, but it's good to know that life can change, right. You can lean into veganism and lean out over the weekend. The nutritional decision is up to you.
