Kick in the Tush Tuesday: An Experiment–Let’s Get Miserable!

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

“When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.”

~Lao Tzu

How we make ourselves MISERABLE!!!

There are two things that we do that make us miserable; that cause great suffering … that causes optional suffering.

1.) The first is to judge;
2.) the second is to have expectations.

We are judging machines.  I suspect that when you pay attention to your thoughts and note each and every time you judge something (from the coffee is good – to- oh no, it’s gray outside), you will find that there’s a whole lotta’ judging going on.

Want to participate in an experiment? Just for today, instead of labeling things “good” or “bad,” just say, “it just is.”

The number on the scale—“’it just is.” Your breakfast—“it just is.” The state of affairs in the office—“it just is.” It’s neither “good” nor “bad”; “it just is.”

If things are neither good nor bad; if things “just are,” you can alleviate the push n’ pull, the ups n’ downs, of good vs. bad.

“It just is” is a place of balance. And in this place of balance you will not only learn to accept things the way that they are, but you will see things in an entirely new light and with it your expectations will dissipate into thin air!

Eat This: Lose Weight — Back-On-the Bandwagon Baked Beans

Just in case you fall off the weight loss bandwagon, and I’m not saying you will, but just in case, here’s a recipe that has magical powers.  It will get you back on the bandwagon.  It’s delicious, easy to make, and healthy.

Remember, weight loss is a process.  It requires work, it involves challenges – and falling off the wagon and finding yourself a bit bruised and bloated is par for the course.

Those who reach their weight loss goals are the ones who get back on the wagon again and again.  They learn to see that these setbacks are temporary lapses, and they learn from them. They look at the big picture over a long period of time.  They understand that there are no magic bullets, no quick fixes.  The turtle wins this race.

So…just in case you experience a lapse, here’s a recipe that can help you set the intention to get back on!  Enjoy!!!

Back-On-the Bandwagon Baked Beans

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup diced shallots
2 garlic cloves, diced
3 turkey bacon strip
1 tablespoon chile powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can diced tomatoes with olive oil and red wine flavor
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can pinto beans, drained
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can red kidney beans, drained
2 tablespoons hot sauce, smoky flavor (I love Chipotle Sauce.)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

Cook Turkey Bacon as directed on package.
In a large pot, combine olive oil, shallots and garlic; cook on medium heat until shallots are soft (about 3 to 5 minutes).
Crumble cooked turkey bacon, add with remaining ingredients.
Bring to boil and then simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Dishes like this are always better the second day. So, I make a pot, let it cool, stick in the fridge and reheat the following day.

#OneWord Thursday: #Loss – Letting Go Is the Lesson

Magic doorway to Sveltesville by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Positarian

Magic doorway to Sveltesville by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Positarian

I’ve often wondered how the words “weight loss” resonate with our psyche. The mere mention of either word often brings forth a myriad of uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Imagine the two strung together.

Over the years, as a Weight Loss Coach, I’ve tried using other words and phrases, i.e. slim down, let go of excess weight, and permanent fat removal, in an effort to create a lighter, more comfortable path on which to walk.

Still, we are losing something; aren’t we?  Not only losing our excess weight, but our identity as well. Are we losing a part of ourselves?

What losses are associated with weight loss, other than the actual weight?
And how do you feel about those losses?

Here, 10 Quotes about Loss to help you ponder.

“Letting go is the lesson. Letting go is always the lesson. Have you ever noticed how much of our agony is all tied up with craving and loss?” ~ Susan Gordon Lydon

“Loss alone is but the wounding of a heart; it is memory that makes it our ruin.” ~ Brian Ruckley

“There really is only one ending to any story. Human life ends in death. Until then, it keeps going and gets complicated and there’s loss. Everything involves loss; every relationship ends in one way or another.” ~ Charlie Kaufman

“I guess by now I should know enough about loss to realize that you never really stop missing someone-you just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence.” ~ Alyson Noel

“Anyone who has lost something they thought was theirs forever finally comes to realize that nothing really belongs to them.” ~ Paul Coelho

“At the temple there is a poem called “Loss” carved into the stone. It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You cannot read loss, only feel it.” ~ Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

“You don’t know who is important to you until you actually lose them.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

“It sucks that we miss people like that. You think you’ve accepted that someone is out of your life, that you’ve grieved and it’s over, and then bam. One little thing, and you feel like you’ve lost that person all over again.” ~ Rachel Hawkins

“In time, in time they tell me, I’ll not feel so bad. I don’t want time to heal me. There’s a reason I’m like this. I want time to set me ugly and knotted with loss of you, marking me. I won’t smooth you away. I can’t say goodbye.” ~ China Mieville

“Gone. The saddest word in the language. In any language.” ~ Mark Slouka
