Signature method to get fit from the inside out!

Shifting Into Allowing Mode Back Home July 8, 2011

This is The Barber Bridge here in Vero Beach, FL. I run this bridge almost every morning when I'm here 🙂

Yes, I said SHIFTING into allowing mode! It’s funny, back in L.A. we tend to get moving so fast and go-go-go all the time, that when I come back to my hometown Vero Beach, FL, it’s like I literally have to start the down shift process from ACTION  into ALLOWING.

I arrived here on Sunday, July 3rd, and the down shifting began. Now it’s Friday, and I am finally feeling myself move slower both inside and outside. For me, it helps to actually visualize a light switch. The bottom says Action and the top says Allowing. I flip the switch upward in my mind, and then ALLOW my body and mind to begin to shift gears, down and down and down, until I am kicked back and relaxed:-)

How are you spending your summer thus far? Are you stuck in action mode, or are you ALLOWING all your hard work to work for you?

I have decided that I have worked so hard, right up to the last-minute before I left Los Angeles, that this trip, for me, was going to be about practicing trust, and allowing all the work I have put in thus far, to reveal its results to me. I am only doing that which feels good to me, and trusting that results are already in process.

Australia is getting closer and closer, and even though I am anxiously and eagerly awaiting my move to another country, I have also committed myself to staying present and in this moment right now. When we remain present, we get to enjoy all the gifts that are right in front of us. My grandmother is turning 90 next week, and getting this time with her is priceless. For her birthday, we are having a huge family reunion right here in Vero Beach!

Last night my father played the guitar and my step-mom and I sang to it. These are the gifts that are here for me, as a result of working hard and being of service to others. I am feeling really calm and grateful today. How bout you?

I would love to hear from you! Big hug!

YES to Today! October 19, 2010

“I am safe in the Universe and all of life loves and supports me.”

– Louise Hay

Today I must say, has been a good day. Yes, I am thankful, grateful, and appreciative for this day. I ate a nutritious shake for breakfast, I got to train a couple amazing clients, then I had a very fun, feel-good workout. After the gym, I showed up for a friend,  for his birthday lunch, and got to see lots of people who love and care about me, and whom I love and care about as well. I had a healthy and nutritious lunch, then I got to go home, to a home I love and feel comfortable in. Once I got home and relaxed for a bit, I ate a huge salad with some fruit for dinner and then got a nice, warm, cleansing shower. Following my shower I had the blessing to coach 2 very special clients. I had one client from 6pm-7pm, then I chose to give myself the gift of meditation until 745pm, and then I prepared myself for my 2nd client at 8pm. Now I sit here, to top off an amazing day, doing what I love even MORE than all those other things I love that I GOT to do today. Yes, this is my dream. I am writing on my blog, to you, and sharing my life and love for fitness with you. I have overcome so much to get to this place where I can sit down at the end of the day and, even though I have not achieved all my goals thus far, I can feel so happy about who I am and what my life stands for. This is my wish for everyone, that we all feel inspired by our own lives, to live our best life, as the best version of ourselves:) I am not saying that every day is easy, or that I do not still struggle or feel challenged in many ways at times, but I am saying that I now have the tools I need to move through it all, the inspiration to share it all, and the willingness to be transformed by it all.

You see today is the kind of day that I have been dreaming of my entire life. I can really and honestly say I do what I love and love what I do EVERY SINGLE DAY, whether I get paid or not, no matter where I am, and no matter who I am with…no matter what. The best part about that is, I get to help others do the same. I have been in a lifelong love affair with fitness my entire life, and I finally understand that being FIT is living a life full of love, inspiration, healthy relationships, support, and having a positive attitude about EVERYTHING that gets put on my path, whether I like it or not. We literally GET to choose who we are and who we want to be one choice at a time, one day at a time. Even the so-called “bad choices” are not bad when we maintain our consciousness about them. When we can take these “bad choices” and let them teach us, and help us to evolve and grow and step even more into our power, THEN we ARE living a FIT life, a life of a warrior and a hero of the heart.

I dream that one day, everyone will be healed of their eating disorders and dysfunctional relationships with food and exercise. I dream that I will be able to use my personal experiences with eating and exercise disorders and addictions to help others heal from theirs.  I dream that everyone will be able to look in the mirror at themselves and LOVE what they see, independent of what the mirror tries to tell them. I dream that we all get to a place of KNOWING we are lovable, KNOWING we are worthy of greatness, and KNOWING that we are absolutely enough, regardless of the circumstances or of our shape and size at any given moment. These are my dreams for you. These are my dreams for me. I am happy to report, that I live in this knowing more and more deeply every single day, and it feels DAMN GOOD! 🙂 It IS possible…it is.
