Maya Angelou taken to Los Angeles Hospital? Phenomenal Woman

A friend telephoned this morning and told me that Maya Angelou had been taken to Los Angeles Hospital. We, a group of friends, went to hear Maya speak last year. All hardcore, diehard fans, we ingested every poetic and meaningful word that she uttered.
Just in case you’d heard the same rumor, I am now happy to report that it is not true. Nevertheless, I do love Maya and I’d like to share one of poems with you.
Phenomenal Woman
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Spread the word … NOT the Icing!
Janice

20 Quick and Simple Weight Loss Tips

KICKOL-LOGO.jpgEven though I permanently removed over 50 pounds 8 years ago, I still – sometimes – especially when traveling, have a lapse of memory and forget the basics. This time, as I head off into the sunset for the weekend, I jotted down a quick check list of things I want to fully remember and live by these next few days!
Perhaps, they will help you be a Weekend Weight Loss Warrior, as well!
1. Drink lots and lots of water and then some more.
2. Savor the flavor.
3. Chew slowly.
4. Eat plenty of greens.
5. Eat root vegetables.
6. Have a nutritious smoothie for breakfast (instead of the free pastries).
7. Upgrade your chocolate from dark chocolate to organic chocolate. (one fabulous treat!)
8. Toss those artificial sweeteners. (They trigger sugar cravings! Plus, they can’t be good for us? No?)
9. Eat whole grains
10. Avoid ‘white flour.’ (It’s been 10 days now, since I’m off the white stuff. I’ll write more about it after it’s been a month!)

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: My Mammogram and You?

How many people do you know who have breast cancer, have died from breast cancer, or are breast cancer survivors? My cousin, after 6 chemotherapy sessions, is now going for radiation treatment. A dear friend recently completed a full year of chemo and radiation and is now taking an oral tablet called Tamoxifen. A friend from my book group was prescribed radiation treatments only. Many of my coaching clients are cancer survivors.
The Statistics:
In 2009, some 192,370 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, accounting for more than one in four cancers diagnosed.
In 2009, an estimated 40,170 women will die from breast cancer
.
What to do? Get a mammogram. I kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month by having one this morning at 7:15 a.m.!! The early bird special. No big deal, truly and what a ‘weight’ off my shoulders.
What is a mammogram?
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast. Mammograms can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease.
The Benefits of Mammography.
1. Early detection of breast cancer greatly improves our chances for successful treatment. If the breast cancer is found and treated while it is still confined to the breast ducts, the cure is almost 100%
2. Studies in the U.S., Sweden and the Netherlands suggest that deaths from breast cancer could be significantly lessened by 36% to 44%. They suggest that women in their 40’s schedule a mammography annually.
3. The American Cancer Society reports that their recent trials found 18% fewer deaths from breast cancer among women who, in their 40’s, had mammography.
4. For women over 50, the FDA reports that a mammography can locate lumps up to two years before they can be felt.

How Do You Measure Success?

Everyone measures success differently. Some people measure it by how much money they make, some by their career path and their titles, some by a successful marriage, some by how pretty or thin they might be. Others measure it by the size of their house, the kind of car they have and/or the number of cars. Some even measure their success by the number of bathrooms they have in their house! (True. I knew someone who was exceedingly proud, because there were 4.5 bathrooms in her house.)
When we were teenagers, we measured success by the friends we had. Did we hang with the ‘in-crowd?’ Or were we losers!!?!
The truth of the matter is that success cannot be measured by material things, nor can it be measured by fame, fortune or dress size. It is an internal job; it is a state of mind. It’s based on your values. If you are living a life that is in alignment with your values for are more likely to feel successful, and if you feel successful than you are successful.
As Anna Quindlen, author and journalist says, “If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.”
In order to experience success, you do need to know where you are headed, and what success will look like. After all, if you don’t know where you are headed, how will you know when you’ve arrived?
mentalCISE: A mental exercise from Our Lady of Weight Loss!
By starting with a clear definition of what success looks, we have a compass by which to measure their success. Here are some questions that will help you define success and set you in the right direction.
Fill in the blank:
“You are going to feel success when you ________________.”
“Think of how great you’ll feel when you _______________.”
“It’s easy to experience success, when _________________, isn’t it?”
One of the things you’re really going to love about being successful is
_______________________________.
Imagine how great you’ll feel when you _________________.
When you really begin to feel successful, then you ________
_____________________________________________.
When you really begin to feel successful, then you _________.
People can be successful because _____________________.
