Motivation and how to keep going!!!!

It takes 21 days for a new behaviour to begin to rewire in your mind and body.

We all get motivated to make a change – but sometimes that motivation doesn’t last!

What on earth are we to do?

These are the times we need to dig deep and find the strength within ourselves and develop the habits that will help us succeed in reaching our goals. When we do new things, our neurological systems are literally re-wiring and re-learning these behaviours.

That’s why it’s not always easy.

However, the great news is that our neurological systems can be trained and taught by us! Isn’t that amazing?

When learning a new habit to support a goal (such as fat-loss), you need to do that new habit for at least 21 days (that’s only three weeks) in order for your body to begin to call it its own. The longer you do it, the easier it sticks. Repetition – day in, day out. That’s what it takes. Then one day, you will look back and say -wow, wasn’t that easy? :-)

What’s even more spectacular is that while you are teaching your body and mind new things, you will learn so much about yourself. You will learn what’s been holding you back in life and who you really can become! You will, if you work at it, create any kind of life you desire. 

Three weeks baby.

Keep going.

With love,

Ginger

Taking my transformation to the next level!

Beauty

“Beauty awakens the soul to act.” – Dante Algheri

After I started taking care of my body – eating right and exercising, my confidence began to sky rocket. I started to feel more like myself again and more capable in this world. I was no longer just a mom – bound to my home to cook, clean and run errands…I was also doing something for me and I never felt better.

Until yesterday!

It keeps getting better. This journey is amazing.

To be completely honest with you, prior to this makeover – I had the attitude of  “What’s the point of wearing make-up? I am a single mom, I am busy, I workout, I already feel good about myself – blah blah blah.” Excuses. Plain excuses. We all make them.

We also have the power to over come them :-)!

I was set in my comfort zone in the beauty realm and finally dug deep for the courage to change that. It was so much easier than I thought!

I went to our team member, Angel Goa, for a makeover. Here is a “before” and “after” photo. I purposefully put a large image in so you can see the difference and how natural everything looks afterwards. No filter and in bright daylight!

Before and after

This first photo was taken after Angel cleansed my face. After this she applied a mask and the results were amazing! It was like I was glowing! Then we went into the make-over. She applied natural make up on my face and taught me how to do this. I am – or let me rephrase – I was absolutely CLUELESS about the make up process.

Angel is amazing! Not only is she exceptionally capable of giving you the look you are seeking – she is an excellent teacher. She  empowers you with the tips, tricks and tools for you to do this at home – every day. After some practice for a complete newbie like me, I can see that this can be done in ten minutes or less. It’s so nice to be able to know how to change your look too! From more natural to let’s go and get sexy! This is so much fun!

Being around Angel is a gift in itself. Her presence and angelic attitude is life changing in itself.

The way I felt afterwards was beyond words. I had an extra pep to my step! My spirit and soul were soaring and dancing! This was the wake up call that I needed – to realize that I was in denial that I wanted to enhance my beauty. And there is nothing wrong with wanting to be beautiful – and taking the steps to do something about it.

It’s called self-love and self-care – and it’s the most empowering feeling ever.

With much love & gratitude,

Ginger

PS. Because I don’t have much make-up at home (goes to show how little I have been working on this aspect of myself) – I picked up some goodies at Angel’s! It’s so fun to have new goodies to play with. If you have your own make up and tools, she can teach you how to use them to enhance your beauty.
