A Measure of My Committment, Ideal Health and Definition of Determination









Interested versus committed. An interesting thought. When you’re interested in doing something, you’ll do it when it’s convenient. When you’re committed however, this means you will do it no matter what. Finding myself bouncing a bit between committed and extremely interested. For example, I say I committed to my ideal health, yet I have this little issue with 1 of my eyes I have pretty much been ignoring for a couple of months. Not a big deal, but a person committed to

Day 40 in A Year of Healthy Living “The Great Jackfruit Adventure” & Lessons Learned

How exciting, Day 40 in A Year of Healthy Living and dubbing today as “The Great Jackfruit Adventure.” Native Foods (100% vegan) recently introduced 2 new menu items using Jackfruit.

One of the items on their menu is Jackfruit Tacos which I never was quite brave enough to try. When Native Foods started serving items made with them, I was still a little leery until I tried

Losing 100+ Pounds: Letting Go of Emotional Weight

Sometimes the hardest weight to let of permanently are regrets which weigh heavily on my our hearts. Learning to accept what is and being grateful goes a long way to lighten our load both mentally and physically.

When I saw Dr. Roger Gould, the author of Shrink Yourself, speak there was 1 point which really struck home with me.

Dr Fuhrman, Eat to Live 6 Week Program, Day 9, Attitude…

My belief is no matter what our goals our, the determining factor between success and failure is attitude. In The Strangest Secret, Earl Nightingale talks about how we ‘become what we think about’. I have long been a fan of Earl and recently purchased a CD Compilation of his work titled, The Essence of Success. The first call I answered this morning was from the Nightingale Conant Company where I purchased my audio program. Assuming they were calling to sell me another product, I was very surprised when I heard why they were really calling. Apparently, when I ordered the
