"Why're You Such a Picky Eater?"
One question I’m constantly asked is “Why are you such a picky eater?” We’re talking nearly every time I go out to eat with friends. Yes, they don’t mean it in a negative way and yes, it’s all light-hearted “banter” but let’s be honest now friends, I’m not a picky eater!
5 Easy Ways to Lose Weight
It can be frustrating when you first start a new routine. Heck, it can be difficult to even begin. I know the struggle, but these tips will help you get motivated. Here are five easy ways to lose the pounds and kick-start your journey.
A New Lifestyle
It's 7:10AM and I woke up about an hour ago. I watched a couple of videos on, "How to become a morning person" the night before and I was truly inspired... motivated. Mind you, I have had times like this before, where I felt that I needed a lifestyle change, where I needed to utilize my time of day doing something more productive and meaningful than sleeping in until mid-day and wasting the rest of the day accomplishing the bare minimum. But this time it was different, this time I told myself, "It's now or never Shawd! Get to it!" So I did.
Beach day! I'm a lucky woman... feeling grateful and feeling blessed, knowing that this trip is coming close to an end... which is really just another new beginning. I needed every moment and second of this. Every struggle and every challenge has reawakened a part of me that has been buried underneath a series of losses, traumas, and changes that pulled the rug out from under me.
Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes

In the back of the mind, you know you deserve more, you know your time is precious, and you might know your worth, but something keeps pulling you to work lazily for the least amount of dollar value in exchange for your precious time. Some of you are dragging yourself out of bed. Some of you are doing everything you can to get yourself out of this “rut” you are driving to get out of. You are doing great, chin up your time will come!
Longevity and Good Health Can Go Together – Here’s How!
I just received a phone call from my father saying that he and his wife have just returned home from their latest excursion – a week’s holiday in the north of our state where it’s a little warmer than the winter they’ve been experiencing in their hometown. What’s rather unique about this story is that both my father and stepmother are 96 years of age! My father drove the 6-plus hours to their destination, and each day they were there they swam early each morning and played nine holes of golf before lunch. Admittedly, my stepmother drove the golf buggy while my Dad played golf, but my point is that this couple have just spent a glorious week’s holiday playing in the sun, without requiring any assistance whatsoever.
My Top Five Melaleuca Products and Why They Destroy the Competition
Today I am going to review my five favorite items so far from Melaleuca and explain why I think they are a far superior product to anything you can get at your regular grocery store
The Future of Household, Wellness, and Health Product Shopping
If you have never heard of Melaleuca before, you are probably pretty skeptical right now about "just another one of these subscription scam websites." I personally have been looking for meal replacement type products (currently waiting on some Soylent to ship), and I am definitely going to be ordering some protein shakes, vitamins, sports drink mixes, and energy bars from this website.
Shifting from Discipline to Ritual
Habits. If you’re into the world of self-improvement and personal growth, you’ve probably spent some time revising, breaking, and introducing new ones into your daily regime. Whether that activity is an exercise, doing something creative daily, or taking a quiet moment for oneself, in the beginning forming a habit can be a challenging process that requires energy and dedication.

Disc Golf Changed My Life
The first time I ever played disc golf was the result of a friend of mine bugging me about it for a good month solid. He kept telling me about this thing where you take Frisbees that aren’t actually Frisbees and throwing them around in the woods.
On a CrossFit Mission to #paytheman and Achieve Strength
Exactly one year ago, I weighed in at 105kg. I was morbidly obese and my health was slowly getting worse. In three months after a traumatic event in my life, I lost 30kg and changed my lifestyle around. Every day during those three months, I woke up thinking, I must change and heal, and that's exactly what happened.
