Got the ‘Burnt Out Blues?’ Feel Better In Under 15 Minutes

YES! YOU CAN … Move from Crappola to Incredible … from Rung Out Dish Rag to Woo Hoo Happy in Under 15 Minutes. by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-Pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for FREE LIFE Consult!)
Are you tired of thinking about … well, everything? Do you have about as much enthusiasm as a wet noodle? Do you feel like you just ought to curl up in bed, with or without the bonbons? Me too!
Yesterday was an extreme day for me. I was multi-tasking like a 300-arm octopus. Truthfully, nothing to complain about any more than anyone else. I’m just sayin’ it was TOO MUCH!!! By the time the mid-afternoon rolled around, I felt like a rung out dish rag. You know what I mean?
So, I called out to Our Lady of Weight Loss for HELPpppppppp!!!! And here’s what she advised me to do.

How to Move from RUNG OUT DISH RAG to WOO HOO HAPPY in 15 Minutes or Less! Our Lady of Weight Loss … helping to remove the weight of the world from our shoulders!


Take a Hike: Get outta the house and take a brisk or not-so-brisk 15 minute walk. It’s amazing what a short walk can do! (I put on my baseball cap and sunglasses and headed outside incognito because I was a true mess … and walked around the local park. Whoa … was that great!)
Hot Aromatherapy Bath: Even if you only take a 15 minute bath break, fill up the tub with your best aromatherapy oils. Enjoy the soak! Breathe Deep!!! Bonus: not only will you smell good, but so will your bathroom and quite possibly the rest of your house!
Phone a Friend: Call someone and say, “Do you have a few minutes to listen. I need to unload and tell someone my ‘story.'” This is not being negative. This is not wallowing in self-pity. Neither of which I believe in. This is unloading, clearing space in your head so that you can MOVE ON! This is admitting that you are human, you have your limits and you have reached them! Caution: Limit your B&M (bitch n’ moan) session to 3 minutes. 5 minutes, tops! Don’t want to burn-out your friend.
Plan a FUN Activity: Either block out some time for yourself later in your day, the next day or the next week. Be sure to PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDAR (yes, I’m yelling). Do have something FUN to look forward to. (Tonight, Peter and I are going to the movies … don’t know which one yet, but I am pickin’ it!)
Feed on Inspiring Words: Read a passage from your favorite book. The Bible or even the greatest permanent fat removal book ever – All Is Forgiven, Move On - something you can easily pick up and put down. Find something that shifts you from angst to ahhhhhh.
Well, there you have it. I took a full hour off and did one thing after the other. A walk, a hot bath, phoned a friend, planned to go to the movies and read my own book! (In all honesty and with great humility, it’s an inspiring and uplifting book.
Please, do tellhow do you move from RUNG OUT DISH RAG to WOO HOO HAPPY?!!!
Spread the word, NOT the icing!

Weight Loss Tip: The Perfect Snack

Sunflower Lady
The Good Seed by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-Pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for FREE LIFE Consult!)
Are you in search of a low-cal, low-fat, long lasting, healthy and satisfying treat that satiates while it supplies significant amounts of vitamin E, magnesium and selenium? I thought so.
Want to know how I have managed to maintain a 50-pound big-time-loss for over 7 years? I’ll tell you how! By plannin’ and pickin’ the right snacks that satisfy on a multitude of levels.
Want to know how I saved my marriage? By keeping a healthy snack in the cabinet that he likes, too! Can you hear him crackin’ those seeds open? (He is a tad noisy, but that’s another story.)

Sunflower Seeds!
Bang for Your Calorie Buck: 162 calories per one ounce serving.
These nutty little beauties come from the seed-studded center of the incredibly spectacular sunflower. The flower manufactures grayish-green or black seeds that are encased in gray or black shells. The seeds are high in oil and are one of our main sources of polyunsaturated oil – one of the good fats.
Sunflower seeds are a good source of:
Vitamin E – an important vitamin that passes through your body and deactivates free radicals that damage fat-containing structures and molecules, such as cell membranes, brain cells and cholesterol;
Magnesium – helps reduce the severity of asthma, lowers high blood pressure and prevents migraines, as well as reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. Magnesium is also necessary for healthy bones, and magnesium calms your nerves.
Selenium – helps to induce DNA repair and synthesis in damaged cells, inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells.
NOTE: Sunflower seeds should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator as their fat content is high, making them prone to rancidity.
How to Eat Sunflower Seeds:
Crack the shell with your teeth, eat the seed and spit the shell.
Something to Strive For: An experienced seed chewer can fling a handful of sunflower seeds in their mouth, pocket them in the side of their cheek, extract the kernels from the shells one by one using their teeth, and tongue, and spit out the hard shell.

JigSaw Sundae: you are . . . BEYOND MEASURE

Click to Mix and Solve
In a world that measures everything by the numbers … from Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Certified Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-Pound Big-Time-Loser.
Okay … my personal … WEIGHTY CONFESSION!
When I was losing weight (vs. being ‘on’ maintenance a.k.a. the mini-see-saw), I was obsessed with the scale and my measurements. If the scale didn’t budge, I took out the tape measure and quickly wrapped it tight around my waist or thighs, manipulating the numbers.
Then one day, Our Lady of Weight Loss spoke to me (again)! And she said, “For goodness sake, stop measuring your self worth by the numbers. YOU are beyond measure.
Holy Light Bulb Moment! I went into “Edward Scissorhands” mode. Scissors in hand, I cut up the tape measure into 6 1/2 inch pieces – made bracelets – and have been wearing them ever since.
Photographed here – draped around the ‘neck’ of my inner-doll, having a light-bulb moment of her own!
Isn’t it good to know that in a world that measures everything by the numbers … from your height, weight and waist to your BMI … from your age to your salary …
that YOU ARE ~ BEYOND MEASURE!
Spread the word, NOT the icing!

Reality Bites (doesn’t it?)

dog halloween 20081A.jpg
Halloween Candy: here, there and everywhere … Already! by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Certified Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for a free life consult)
Oh … My Goodness Gracious Me!!!! I went to CVS Drug Store yesterday (one of those mega-drug-stores that sell underwear, frozen food and drugs … don’t know which one is in your neighborhood, but you do). Three aisles were devoted to Halloween Candy – already!!!!
Truthfully, I found it a tad disturbing. First of all, it was 77 degrees in NYC yesterday. Halloween and 77 degrees don’t mix well. And it was a reminder that “The Season of Temptation” is fast approaching.
It was my plan to send out some Halloween tips closer to Halloween, but after seeing all that temptation right in front of me, after hearing the call of the bite size Babe Ruth’s, I thought maybe I best reach out sooner than later. Before y’all (and me, too) start stocking up for Halloween.
Here is my first in a series of bite-size tips that will get us through the holidaze glaze together. My apologies for those of you who are not ready to think about the holidaze glaze yet. Me either! Not yet ready – but the candy is ready to be bought!!!!
I am going to lay it out – tell it to you straight. Bits of REALITY!
REALITY BITES: Do NOT buy Halloween candy until the day before Halloween!!!!! lest you will eat. Plain and simple. The hard truth.
Spread the word, NOT the icing! (or in this case early Halloween candy!)
