KICK in the TUSH TUESDAY: Fly High, Break Free, Be Happy

"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, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“When once you have tasted flight you will always walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward: for there you have been and there you will always be.” – Henry Van Dyke

Happy Kick Tush Tuesday! Recently, I started referring to myself as an Anti-Gravity Coach.

In response to my new title, people ask, “What do you mean you’re an anti-gravity coach?” I’d like to take this opportunity to explore and explain!

When you really think about it, when I really think about it, my approach as a Life and Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert is focused on letting go of that which weighs you down, followed by taking flight.

Taking off, taking flight is about letting go of gravity; that which pulls us down, that which weighs us down. It is about rising above our belief systems, our way of thinking and our daily habits.

Have you heard the expression, “You can’t see the forest from the trees?” Flying high allows us to see things that we cannot see when we are on the ground, in the middle of our mental “mine-field.”

Flying high allows us to create enough space to objectively look at our lives and experience new perspectives.

You cannot break a habit. You can only create new ones. By flying high above our lives, by breaking free of gravity, we break free (while in flight) of the habits that weigh us down.

When we break free of the habits that weigh us down, we have an opportunity to experience, see, feel and imagine our “want power” muscle in its full glory. We are able to imagine, to envision going beyond the boundaries of linear living.

We are able to break the bonds of our earthly identities and remember our true identities.

When we are in touch with and celebrate our authentic self, as opposed to the food-obsessed person, the unorganized person, the victim, and/or the “fat” person, then we are able to fly.

Feel free to imagine what it might feel like to “let go” of all that weighs you down. Feel free to ask more questions!

Experience Anti-Gravity Coaching. Come fly with me!

Puzzled? How Heavy Is Your Mental Junk?

How Heavy is Your Mental Junk? ~ by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

The week’s Get Jiggy Weight Loss JigSaw Puzzle, “How heavy is your mental junk?” points a weighty finger at our negative thoughts, bad news, and the “He said, She said” gossip that clutters your minds, a.k.a. A.k.a. mental junk!  In answer to that question, I suspect it’s very heavy, weighty, and in your way, causing what feels like “stuckness.”

Here, a few quick do’s and dont’s from OLWL that can help you steer clear of that which creates mental junk! 

Our Lady of Weight Loss, dedicated to “lightening up” in all ways possible!

Click through this week’s Puzzled? How Heavy is Your Mental Junk?

Send JigSaw postcard to a friend: Puzzled? Postcard.

1.  Do not watch the news, violent movies or empty calorie television shows, especially before bedtime.

2.  Do not hold on to old grudges and hurts. Let it go. All is forgiven. Move on!

3.  Do not focus on your problems. Shift your energy to helping someone else.

4.  Do not worry. There’s no point to it, and worrying is a real buzz kill.

5.  Do read inspiration and motivational books, magazines. Keep your mind awash in positivity.

6.  Do spend some time solving crossword puzzles or number games. They exercise your brain, enabling you to learn more easily. (OLofWL provides one every Monday!)

7.  Do sit quietly, all by yourself. Ahhhhhhhh…

What might you do (or not do) today to accentuate the positive, clear out your mental junk?

Eat This – Totally Satisfying: Caramelized Onion Tart

Your Gain Is My Pain…contact Janice Taylor, Life and Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

A friend unexpectedly rolled into town just in time to lunch with us.  It was kind of funny, because lunch was a “happening,” which is seldom the case.

Generally speaking, it’s every man-for-himself, catch-as-catch-can, you-are-on-your-own-buddy.  For whatever reason, the mood had hit earlier in the day, and I had a 5 star lunch already to rock n’ roll.

A Caramelized Onion Tart was just coming out of the oven, the salad was tossed and a pitcher homemade sun tea had just been placed on the table.  And get this, I had on a gorgeous apron that I’d picked up (on sale) from my favorite store, anthropologie.  If I didn’t look like a cross between Donna Reed, Betty Crocker and Betsey Johnson (to dance on DWTS–you can expect a cartwheel or two), then I don’t know who did!

When my friend asked if we always dined like this, I replied with a twinkle in my eye and a hint of sarcasm in my tone, “Of course! Don’t you?”

Caramelized Onion Tart

Ingredients:
2 large sweet onions, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon unsalted margarine
8-10 whole cloves of garlic, peeled
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 egg whites, lightly beaten
1/3 cup low-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Pie crust shell

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Pre-bake crust for about 10 minutes; remove from oven and cool.
Meanwhile, heat oil and margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat; sauté onions until they begin to turn golden.
Then toss in whole garlic cloves and continue to saute.
Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 30 minutes more or until caramelized. (The more patient and caramelized you are, the better.)
Let cool slightly.
Add pepper, egg whites and sour cream to onions.  Mix well.
Pour into prepared pie shell.

Sprinkle Parmesan and nutmeg evenly over the top.
Bake for 35–40 minutes or until filling is set; let stand for 5 minutes before removing from oven.

Cut into 6 wedges and serve.

Approximately: 250 calories per slice (Non-scientific analysis – I added up all ingredients and divided.)

Enjoy this 5 yum dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack!  Totally Satisfying!

#OneWord Thursday: How to Illuminate this #NOW!

Being human, inhabiting the moment; is no easy task. Our minds spin tales of the past, look toward the future, while today hollers, howls, tries so hard to get our attention.

In a flash today becomes yesterday, precious moments missed. Moments that held such promise. Gone.

Read through these words, enlightened thoughts from some of our best luminaries. Take them in on a cellular level, as they have the power to light up this very “now.”

11 Quotes: Illuminating the NOW

“What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.” ~ A.A. Milne

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Forever is composed of nows.” ~ Emily Dickinson

“Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.” ~ Walt Whitma

“We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives.” ~ Maya Angelou

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“Life is a preparation for the future; and the best preparation for the future is to live as if there were none.” ~ Albert Einstein

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, look to tomorrow, rest this afternoon.” ~ Charles M. Schulz

“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“I promise myself that I will enjoy every minute of the day that is given me to live.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
