“You cannot breathe deeply and worry at the same time. Let the worry go. Breathe”. – Sonia Choquette AIr is your #1 fuel, making breathing crucial to your wellness/weight loss pursuits. I used to be a horrible breather and I see people now, everyday, that breathe like I used to breathe - shallow and with fear.

You know what to do and you want to do it, so why does that regular workout (sometimes) NOT happen. I've been analyzing this issue my whole adult life. How do you JUST DO IT?

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla As a yogini, I see everything in terms of vibration and, to be frank, the higher the better.

A statement said with confidence about a perceived truth is an affirmation. In The 7-Day Workout Challenge, each workout has it’s own positive affirmation. My hope is that these affirmations enhance your week – so you not only feel physically inspired, you’re also emotionally on the up and up too. For example, the Day 1 workout, Feel Good Fusion, has the affirmation, “I deserve to feel good”. Seemingly so simple, but this statement has the ability to program your mind into believing/knowing you deserve to feel good.
It is thrill to see people progress. One such inspiring person is Mary, a florist who is a mother of two college-aged kids. She has struggled with fibromyalgia for over 20 years and in those 20 years, has traveled all over the country seeking doctors and innovative therapies in hopes of getting a little pain relief. She's looked under every “rock” so to speak and the one thing she said has helped her the most is daily nurturing exercise. Exercise, she says, is medicine, but only the “right” kind.
