Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Just How Negative Are You?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, can help you to … Let Go of All that Weighs You Down

Have you ever heard the expression “You are what you eat?” Yes? Well, Our Lady of Weight Loss has a different spin on things. She says, “You are what you say.”

Our Lady of Weight Loss wisely points out that you have been embedding negative and/or positive self talk patterns into the deepest parts of your mind since early childhood.

Because “You are What You Say (aloud and inside your mind),” and because positive self talk has the power to increase self-confidence, reduce stress and basically make your life infinitely more enjoyable, sending ripples of happiness throughout your world, I encourage you to Get Hip to Your Self Talk.

Is your self-talk primarily positive, or mostly negative? Are you sure?

Here follow a few strategies that can help you become more aware of your inner dialogue. AWARENESS is the first step.

4 Steps: Get Hip to Your Self-Talk

Write It. At night and in the morning, jot dot a general summary of your thoughts. Today is; today will be; today was … Don’t judge it; just let it rip and then read it.

Stop It. It’s as simple as that! When you hear yourself saying something negative … STOP yourself in your tracks by saying, “Stop!” It’s more powerful to say it aloud. (I said “simple,” not “easy.”)

Snap It. I’ve heard that some people wear a rubber band around their wrist, and when they hear themselves saying something negative, they snap it! I don’t know how I feel about the rubber band strategy, but if you are really deep into negativity, you might want to snap it!

Neutralize It. When you catch yourself saying something negative, turn it around. Instead of “I can’t do it,” say, “I don’t now how.” “Instead of “I’m in pain,” say, “My body (or mind) is experiencing discomfort.” Instead of “today was an awful day,” say, “today was trying and the best part of it was _____.”

Got it? Good!

Eat This: Lose Weight – Zucchini, Chickpea Salad

Eat Healthy!

Eat Healthy!

I’ve gone mad with power, “spiralizing” my way through the kitchen.   Cucumber noodles, zucchini noodles, beet noodles, alike!  I don’t generally endorse products, but I’m having so much fun with the Spiralizer,  the best gadget/kitchen aide that I’ve purchased in eons, that I just had to share the excitement and the vegetable recipes.

Because, Our Lady of Weight Loss devotees, and Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club), if you want to increase your healthy food intake and/or lose weight, then eat more vegetables!   Sometimes it’s that simple!

This Zucchini & Garbanzo Bean (a.k.a. Chickpea) Salad is a great summer salad.  No hot oven blasting, just you spiralizing, in the kitchen, humming a happy tune!

Ingredients:
3 small green zucchinis, spiralized
1 can (14 or 15 oz.) Garbanzo Beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 medium size orange bell pepper, seeded, and cut into long skinny slices
(Red or yellow work well, but orange is one of my favorite colors.)
3 gloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons lemon, freshly squeezed
1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped fine

Instructions:
Spiralize the zucchini. Place in large bowl.
Add garbanzo beans, chopped red onion, and orange pepper.
In small bowl, whisk together the remainder of ingredients.
Drizzle dressing over zucchini mix. Gently toss with love.
Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours.
Stir or shake it about as you remember to do so.  (Casual cooking here!)

Enjoy!

Tasty Tidbit: How to Measure Success?

abstract jello

Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, helping you to rise above and go beyond.

How do you measure success? For some people, money is a sign of success; for others success is measured by their accomplishments, their relationships, the amount of happiness (another subjective happening), the deeds and services that they have carried out for others and/or, particularly for those who have serendipitously found their way to Our Lady of Weight Loss, success may be measured by the number on the scales of injustice.

The thing is, if you are not living your “truth” daily, if you do not allow your personal masterpiece to unfold, to reveal itself, to evolve in all its glory, then all the successes you may achieve, including your “thinness,” will fall short and fall hard.

Success emerges from authenticity. We are here, on earth–in human form, to share our clunky, chunky selves, our eccentricities. You are a unique sliver of and from the Universe.  Allow yourself to “become.” Experience true success.

What does success mean to you?  Feel free to weigh in!
