Morning Tushkateers,  How is your September shaping up? Mine is kind of groovy.  After decades of living in New York City, a lifetime of wearing our New Yorker identity with pride, we (my man and me) are officially tourists!  We are visiting our friends and family on the east coast, and it is fun!  There’s an excitement to it and an appreciation of what we took for granted for so long.

I fully recommend shaking things up.  Changing, re-arranging, re-ordering your life.   I know that it’s frightening, but well worth dealing with and ultimately pushing through the angst that surfaces.

Which brings us (OLofWL and me) to today’s topic:
The #1 KILLER of Grand Plans, Great Schemes and Groovy Dreams!!!

Our Lady of Weight Loss wants to know …
… Are you afraid to commit to yourself fully? Are you terrified to lose weight, to fully take-in, ingest, go hog wild for your healthy living plan? Are you just plain afraid to push your envelope in any direction? Are you afraid to let the buried, the authentic you out? Afraid that you are going to fall on your tush again and again and again–eventually breaking it (cracked already?) and then you seriously won’t be able to get up?

Are you afraid of failure?  Move over. You are NOT alone.

Fear of Failure is the Number ONE KILLER of Grand Plans and Great Schemes and Groovy Dreams!

In all likelihood it started when you were young; you failed at something, maybe got a big fat “F” in school, or failed to get on the cheerleading squad. (Ha! Like I even tried.) Who knows what you failed at, but you did.  We all did!  And some of us soaked in those feelings from failure and decided consciously or unconsciously in that snapshot of a moment, on a deep level, to protect ourselves at ALL COSTS!

And so I say to you today, let’s turn that all around and “Let’s CELEBRATE failure!” Woot! Woot!

Let’s acknowledge that no one was born with a “this is how to walk” manual. We all fell on our tushes multiple times and were applauded for it; encouraged by our parents to get up and try again! Until we finally just figured it out.

Rather than crumble and never “walk” again, I am going to ask you to applaud every failure today (and henceforth). Each and every time you fail, I want you to resist all urges to say mean things to yourself. I want you to resist all urges to crawl up in the corner in a fetal position and EAT! I want you to resist the need to protect yourself.

Yes, I am suggesting that we together celebrate failure!

I’m betting that you will inadvertently or intentionally fail (if you consciously decide to push your envelope) today. And you are now free to say “Yahoo. I failed.” And you are now free to learn from your failure. You are free to stretch and grow!

There is a BIG difference between failing and being a failure. Got it? You are NOT a failure. On the contrary. Your true nature is whole, creative and resourceful. There is no reality to FEAR. It’s a mindset! Reset your mind.

Failing requires courage. I understand that feelings of disappointment accompany failure. And that’s okay. Feel them. Fully! And then learn from your failure and say to yourself, “YAY! I am not frozen in fear. I am one of those rare people in life who are willing to put it out there and fall on my tush, get up, dust myself off and move forward.”

Ready to Celebrate failure. Celebrate you! Be Happy? All this and more!!! Join Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Kick in the Tush Club/FB!

Dysfunctional Chef: Warning–One Must Hard Boil Their Eggs Correctly!

The Hard, The Discolored - from Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert, helping you to let go of that which weighs you down!

The Hard, The Discolored – from Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert, helping you to let go of that which weighs you down!

While perusing and cruising the vast world of food and recipes, I stumbled upon one recipe that warned, “One must hard boil their eggs correctly.” Correctly?  You mean you don’t just boil them?  It’s more complicated than that??? My head is spinning …

…And I’m guessing that if I didn’t know how to correctly boil an egg that there are two or three others out there who are in the dark. So, for those of us who mistakenly thought all you had to do was toss an egg in boiling water and wait for it to get hard, here follows some hard boiled vital information on how to boil an egg.

How to Hard Boil an Egg the Correct Way

1. Do NOT use fresh eggs!!! They are difficult to peel. It’s best to use eggs that are near their expiration date.

2. To help center the yolks in the egg, be sure to store your eggs on their sides in the fridge for approximately 12 hours. Easy enough to do. Just seal your egg crate up with tape and turn it on its side.

3. Take eggs out of the fridge (no longer on their side) and bring to room temperature. They must be room temperature.  That said, if you take them straight from the fridge, simply run warm water over them for a minute or two.

4. Place eggs in a single layer in a pan with enough cold water to cover eggs. Bring water to boil, remove from heat, cover tightly with a lid, and leave eggs for 17 minutes.

5. Place eggs under running cold water to cool quickly. This is also known as “coddling.” This will help prevent discoloration of the yolk and will also help to make the peeling process run more smoothly!

6. If you don’t consume your hard boiled eggs within a few hours, do refrigerate. And note that hard boiled eggs in the shell can be refrigerated up to one week only!  Peel and Eat — or — Don’t Peel and Refrigerate.

#OneWord Thursday: Say #YES to Love

Say YES to Quirky Wisdom - Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert ... Come Fly With Me!

Say YES to Quirky Wisdom – Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert … Come Fly With Me!

The great teachers tell us that you cannot start seeing or understanding anything when you start with “no.” Here, 10 quotes to an inspire a wholehearted yes to the present moment, yes to life, yes to love!

“Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment… Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“I imagine that yes is the only living thing.” ~ E.E. Cummings

“There are an infinite number of reasons to say no. Instead try to focus on one good reason to say yes.” ~ Jarod Kintz

“In the space between yes and no, there is a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it’s the legroom for the lies you will tell yourself in the future.” ~ Jodi Picoult

“Shrug off the no’s – they are temporary. This is your world. In your world there is only yes.” ~ Jolene Stockman

“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!” ~ Richard Branson

“When spring knocks at your door, regardless of the time of year or season of our lives, run, do not walk to that door, throw it open with wild abandon, and say, “Yes! Yes, come in! Do me, and do me big.” ~ Jeffrey R. Anderson

“Yes is like credit, No is like cash.” ~ C.J. Langenhoven

“Yes, the mind likes to think, but until it learns to listen to others, to the body, the heart and all the sense, it also uses itself to block everything it does not like to do or to acknowledge.” ~ Richard Rohr

“When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.’ “~ Dalai Lama
