Travel Weight Loss 101:  One of Our Lady of Weight Loss‘s readers gives a shout out for “HELP,” and Our Lady of Weight Loss comes to the rescue!

… Dear Our Lady of Weight Loss: 
“I am headed to a wedding. I am nearly out of mind over it all.  Three days out of town, food everywhere – even in the hotel room’s mini-bar is stocked to the gills – what to do? Temptation everywhere. HELP!!!” – S.V.

Click on the above Video Blog to hear Our Lady of Weight Loss’s 9 Travel Tips to Sveltesville and Beyond!

!1. The Hotel Mini-Bar: Prior to take off, call the hotel concierge. Politely (always good idea to be nice), ask he or she to remove all mini-bar items from your room as well as empty the mini-fridge of its many sinful items. You don’t need to have temptation surrounding you 24/7! Do you?

2. Stock It: Assuming that you are flying in, then ask the concierge for the location and phone number of the nearest market. Call the market, have the food delivered to your hotel before you arrive, and ask the concierge to put the ‘good stuff’ in your fridge. If not possible, shop once you get there and load up healthy. Fruits n’ vegetables, please!

3. Bring It: It’s always a good idea to toss a few emergency dry goods into your bag. Melba toast – one-ounce boxes of Raisins – some raw nuts (count them into individual servings and bag ’em. Do NOT eat from a bag. You’ll lose count and forgetaboutit).

4. Save Dessert: If you are already imagining desserts, alcoholic beverages, and who knows what else, wipe your mental screen clear and put these items on the back burner. Save dessert for your last night in town. If you start with dessert, you are opening the door to big trouble my friends with a capital T!

5. Journal: Bring a book to write in and each and every morning write! Reconnect with your strengths, your soul, your purpose. Reinforce all that you stand for; all that you want.

6. Music for the Soul: Music activates the same feel good center of the brain that food does, so bring your iPod with your favorite music and listen and go for it – shake your booty from here to there and back again!

7. Breathe Daily: Breathing helps on so many levels, but for the purposes of this particular challenge, breathing moves you out of your ‘thinking’ mind and into your body. So – when the cravings and temptations of a trip get to you, breathe and notice how the cool air moves in and through your body. Disconnect from your thoughts; connect to the sensations in body.

8. Ask and Listen: Ask yourself, before you over-indulge, “What does my body have to say about this?” Your body is never wrong. Never! The trick is to actually listen to your body and not override your body’s brilliance!

9. Don’t Freak Out; Reach Out. Remember folks, I am but an email away and I am with you every ounce of the weigh!

Self-Care : Selfish? Self-Indulgent? Necessary?

People tell me that there’s just no time to take care of their self. People say that there’s no time to do the things that they need to do to be fully happy and healthy. They tell me that they simply “can’t, can’t, can’t” do much, if not anything at all for their self, because that would mean that they are selfish, which, in turn, simmers down to a reduction sauce of their being bad, bad, bad, which is always (and I mean always) accompanied with platters full of heavy-duty, weighty guilt! Sound familiar?

Well, I am here to tell you that the way we view taking care of ourselves is upside down and backwards. There is nothing wrong with being concerned about your energy, your health, your state of mind, your happiness, and/or your well-being.

When we truly take care of our self and care for ourselves, it becomes possible to spread lightheartedness, good cheer, and it enables us to care far more profoundly for other people.

“She refilled her pitcher, and in so doing,
she was able to refresh everyone around her.” – Queenism

Self-care is neither selfish, nor is it self-indulgent. It is necessary!
Make time for yourself. Today!

Sometimes it’s just that simple.

#Imperfectionism vs. Perfectionism : To Banish Imperfections Is to Destroy Expression

Your Gain Is My Pain!  Contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Imperfection or perfectionism comes up quite a lot in my work. People tell me that they are perfectionists. I encourage them to strive to be comfortable with imperfection; to see the beauty in flawed.

In other words, instead of experiencing imperfection as a shortcoming, a deficiency and/or weakness, why not see it and feel it simply as an inexactness and inaccuracy that presents an opportunity to see and feel the state of things as they are. The “isness.”

Here, 8 Perfectly IMPERFECT Quotes to chew on

To banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyze vitality. ~ John Ruskin

We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us—that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect. ~ Emilio Estevez

I’ve learned recently to love imperfection a lot because it shines such a big light on God’s grace. And if someone has grace for you that’s when you feel their love the most and they see you for who you are and they love you anyway. ~ Lacey Mosley

I believe that the measure of my soul is my capacity to love imperfect people. ~ Joseph Grenny

But those who seek only reassurance from life will never be more than tourists—seeing everything and trying to possess what can only be felt. Beauty is the shadow of imperfection. ~ Simon Van Booy

Imperfection is in some sort essential to all that we know in life. ~ John Ruskin

To accomplish the perfect perfection, a little imperfection helps. ~ Dejan Stojanovic

But life isn’t something that should be edited. Life shouldn’t be cut. The only way you’ll ever discover what it truly means to be alive and human is by sharing the full experience of what it means to be human and each blemish and freckle that comes with it. ~ Iain Thomas

Ready to Turn on the Music and Lose It! – contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Artist, Author, Positarian

Music is powerful. A true gift that keeps on giving.  Music activates the same feel good center of your brain that food does!  Here, 5 ways that music can positively affect you!

1. Listen to music: Lose weight. (Wow, that was easy!)
And … there’s more . . .

2. Fight Off the Common Cold: Listening to music lowers the stress hormone cortisol, boosts the feel-good endorphins and fortifies the immune system by raising levels of immunoglobulin A, a prime defense against upper respiratory infection.

3. Chase those blues away: There are minor chords and major chords; and while the minor chords tend to bring you down, the major chords can and do raise the spirits. Music sweetens temperament, increases feelings of optimism, calm and joy.

4. Spin Sister: Listen to music while spinning, running, trotting and your endurance levels will soar. You’ll hang in there longer and feel happier for it.

5. Sleep Baby Sleep: Play 45 minutes of your fav soft music before you get into your comfy bed and you will effectively lower your heart rate, slower your respiration and enjoy a good quality sleep.
What’s your favorite genre of music? What gets your booty to shakin’? What calms and soothes? What’s your favorite lullaby?

Sometimes it’s just that simple.
