It was a breath of fresh air. I began to realize that the freedom I felt/experienced on the coaching call was something I was created to enjoy and able to have in my life on a daily basis.

Yesterday I hosted three free calls to share four tips to reinventing your life. If you couldn’t make the call, no worries.
Here are the four steps to reinventing your life:
1. Be transparent and honest with yourself and AT LEAST one other person.
This first step is admitting that you are stuck. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. But as I have said over and over again, “keepin’ it real” with yourself is the ONLY way that any change can occur. Otherwise you’re just buying your own bullshit. That’s a road going nowhere. Start taking stock of the areas of your life that you just feel BLAH. Admit it to yourself. Honesty with yourself IS the best policy. (click to tweet)
Once you do that, share it with someone who you know has your back. More importantly, share it with someone who you trust, and know won’t sugarcoat things. Listen, we all have people in our lives that just tell us what we want to hear. That’s not helpful. At all. Talk to someone who you know understands you AND is willing to tell you the truth, even if it’s hard to swallow.
You wanna know what I’m sick and tired of?
Talking about the past.
I’m sick and tired of it because for so long that was ME. I spent most of my time asking “Why did this happen?” or “Why me?”
It literally made me sick. And tired.
So you see, this is why I keep it real. I keep it real because the way that I was able to move past my past was to be honest with myself and understand that there was absolutely nothing I could do about my past- that the only power that I had was to be focused on the NOW and move forward.
If you have ever found yourself living in the past, then this week’s Keepin’ It Real is for you.
Nothing to be ashamed of. Like I said, it took me a very long time to move past my past and now, I help people do just that!
It’s awesome what we can create when we truly let go of the stuff that holds us back.

This past week I did something that was very out of my comfort zone.
I bought a two piece bathing suit.
This is a huge deal for me. Media has done a great job in portraying what an “ideal” body looks like. And if I were comparing my body to what media says– HELL NO would I be buying myself a two piece bathing suite.
But as I’ve consistently said to you over the years in all my emails- the first step to feeling confident and going after the thing you are most afraid of–
Take the FIRST STEP.
Here’s a picture of the bathing suits that I bought.
Do I have the “perfect” body.
But it’s perfect to me.
The bathing suit has much less to do with the actual apparel and much more to do with me not wanting to tan like an Oreo cookie (brown on the top and bottom and white on my stomach).
Yesterday morning I did something I never thought I would do–I took a dance class.
Now that may not seem like a big deal, but this was no ordinary dance class. I took a Nia class, which is a sensory-based movement practice (did I lose you already?)
Honestly, I had my judgements.
When I first walked in I was like, “Whoa. This is some hippie shit right here.”
And then, the class began. OMG. I hadn’t breathed, moved, and cried, like the way I did in that class. I released so much pent up emotion.
Here’s a picture of me and the dance instructor, Dr. Deb Kern. She’s amazing.
If this was a year ago, prior to me going to culinary school, going to India for the summer, studying Ayurveda, and SLOWING DOWN– I would have never gone to this class.
