Having eyes to see & a heart to experience moments of greatness is a blessing.
Sunday was AMAZING!!!! I had planned to do Step It Up with Steph's "One Day Intenstive". It was 'intense" just like the name of the service. I love learning and was able to learn more about myself that would help me on my healthy lifestyle journey. Stephanie has a profound, fun and unique way of approaching having a healthy lifestyle. I love her upbeat and positive personality. Somethings were reminders, while other things were huge, "A Ha" moments. It was a day without phone calls/txts/emails/social media. I would strongly encourage anyone who is serious about weightloss and or wanting a healthy lifestyle path to invest in themselves with Stphanie's "One Day Intensive" :) !!!
I am thankful for being 22 pounds lighter and healthier than I was in June. No diets for me, been there done that, instead a healthier lifestyle has taken place. In June I started doing energy work as well as other modalities I use in my sessions on me which has helped clear blocks that had been in my way of being healthy. I started doing cardio 30-120 minutes 5-6 days a week. I love cardio, it gives me the oppertunity to Rock out to Awesome music, kinda like dancing. I started eatting more real food & approached in-take with nurturing myself. I also became best friends with water. I started to remind myself of the passion I had for working out & being healthy. In middle school & high school I used to go to an aerobics class before school and then after school I would go running by the lake for 30-45minutes (giving thanks for all the beautiful things I saw- trees, lake, dirt, sand, sky, sun, clouds, people smiling...). The year my mom's mom was dying of cancer I did a course we called January Short Term at Roycemore School (we were given the chance to pick an interest we wanted to learn about independately) on Health Clubs. That interest had stemed from my original interest of Massage. I will always be thankful to the show Mr.Rogers for having a career day and having a massage therapist on the show. Since that show I have always known that is what I want to do. January Short Term made a huge impact on me, one it gave time to learn about health clubs in Texas and spend the last days I'd have with my mom's mom (whom I was always very close to) and a chance to see and learn about the different departments in Pat's health club Evanston Athletic Club. That was the health club I took such fun aerobic classes from. I am always open to learning more modalaties & gather more tools to add fun and knowedge to what is working for me now in my healthier lifesytle.

This morning after taking the twins to school, I went to fill my car with gas. I was approached by a man who asked if he could use my reciept from gas to get himself a $.99 coffee. I told him I'd go in with with him after I filled my car. While I was filling car up, I asked if he was from the area. He said he has been moving around for a while being homeless after loosing his job. I asked if he had family near by and he said no & that family hasn't been there to help. He mentioned that he hasn't had food for days. He also sounded thankful to his friends helping him work for a short period of time in previous month & saving money. As I stood there talking with him I felt him having such graditude. I was inspired to go inside Donkin' Donuts to get him breakfast. I asked him if it was ok if I could give him a hug & he opened up his arms (hugs are great). Right before I went on my way I asked him what his name is & told him I am Hope. He said you've got to have Hope with a smile on his face. I am thankful for being moved by a stranger
I love being around people. Everyone has so many amazing gifts to offer the world. It's great when we think of each other and help one another transform into more of who we are meant to be. I am thankful for the connections I have to be part of a truely inspiring project. I gently suggest keeping your eyes and heart open to the resources that are all around you (you might be surprised the forms they come in).
