Do You Want To Know How To Blog?Let Me Share Everything That I Learn!

Last year I decided that I was going to be a Life Coach. I had completed my training and knew that this was my purpose in life. I was working as a Personal Trainer and a Primary School Teacher but the thing I wanted to do most was to help people change their lives through helping them change their minds. So I decided on a business name and I put up a static website www.feelingfabulousforever.com

Now if you go there today you will see an amazing blog site that is still very new but it is well set up and I have started adding some fabulous information, products and services.

Two months ago, it did not look like this.

The old site was a static website. It was just like a business shop front (in the middle of nowhere). I had an opt-in box and all my auto responders set up, but my site just sat there and I wondered why nobody was calling me to ask for my coaching services. I knew what an awesome coach I was and that I could help many create happier, more fulfilled lives but there was no traffic.

I was doing some coaching from word of mouth and handing out my business cards at networking events, yet still my poor old website just sat there.

This year I decided to get serious about my coaching and learn from experts that have already made it big. I also decided that I have a huge message and it is time for me to share it with the world. I also decided to learn about the power of blogging.

Everything that I learn and implement at www.feelingfabulousforever.com I will write about here. I know that you probably have a message to share with the world and want to know more about how to do it and how to create traffic to your website (or even set one up).

Watch this space as I share all the secrets and tips from the top experts in the world and I share my journey to living the life of my dreams (warts and all).

Please post a comment or ask a question below and I will get back to you ASAP.

I believe in MY dreams. I believe in YOUR dreams.

To health, happiness and living the life of YOUR dreams.

Sharing my Message

I am feeling a little stuck in my business life at the moment so I decided to re-read ‘Millionaire Mumpreneurs’ by Mel  McGee, for a little advice and inspiration – or more so for up kick up the ass: a little something that we all seem to need every now and then.

Millionaire Mumpreneurs

The first page that I opened up on read as follows:

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently – they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing that you can’t do is ignore them because they change things…. they push the human race forward and, while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”  ‘Think Different’, Apple Inc marketing campaign 1997

This paragraph really allowed me to understand that I am ok. Actually, I am much more than just ok; I am sensational.

Just because I believe that I am different to a majority of the population and sometimes I do feel like a misfit, doesn’t mean that I have to shy away. Actually it means the complete opposite. It means that I must stand up and share my message and my knowledge.

I am one of these people who see things differently and I am here to push the human race forward.

I am here to help change the world and make it a much better place.

My problem at the moment is that I am not serving enough people.

As T. Harv Eker said: ‘If you’re not earning enough, it’s because you are not serving enough people’.

I know that most people in business go through the same phases where they lack confidence and have some sort of hang ups. It’s perfectly normal but I must get over it.

I am NOW committed to serving people and am so passionate about my message that it is time to get out of my own way. I have all the knowledge and information I need. It is time for me to focus my energy on the people that I am going to serve instead of having it tied up with my own ego and sense of self.

So if you would like to get Healthier, Wealthier, Happier and More Successful then watch this space as I start to share my message and knowledge.

Have an awesome day.

Parenting – Being a role model

 

Good or Bad

Today as I sat on the rocks, at Short Point Merimbula, pondering about life and death I asked myself “what was I really doing with my life?”

You see, last night we got a message from home (Melbourne) that my Uncle Noel had passed away. He was a wonderful kind and gentle man who had been a part of my life for 40 years and he had lived a great life. So, as I sat there I couldn’t help but wonder about where I would be when I was in my eighties (I have no doubt that I will make it to 100).

I know where I want to be and what I want to be doing but what am I actually doing about it NOW?

I have made some big changes in my life over the past few years, some positive and some negative and I have an extremely postive outlook, but I have come to the realisation that I am a bit of a ‘Gunna-might’.

Gunna do this! -Might do that!

Although I have huge dreams and aspirations and totally believe that every will work out fantastic I seem to say a lot of things but never really take action. I get annoyed with my two children (Maddi & Riley) when they do the same thing but today it really struck me that I was their biggest role model. They are learning from me everyday and when I get annoyed with them it’s really myself that I am annoyed with.

I am very good at wasting time and looking busy and also letting fear get in my way. So today I made a promise to myself that I am going to take massive action everyday to ensure that I am extremely successful, a fantastic role model for my children and that I am able to leave a legacy when I die. I have so much knowledge and potential and I am letting self sabotage get in my way.

The Time Is Now

Everyday I now choose to take the necessary action to create the happy, successful life that I desire and to be an awesome role model to my children. I will share my knowledge and expertise with the world and give enormous value.

Are you creating the ideal life that you truly desire or are you too self sabotaging and teaching your children bad habits?

I would love to hear from you.

The One Question That Will Change You Forever

 

If there were no limitations or consequences what would your perfect average day look like?

Firstly let’s define some of the words in the above question.

Limitations – financial, geographical, health, time, etc. Things we use as excuses for not achieving what we truly desire.

Consequences – stuff that could get you into trouble or impact others.

Average – You could do it everyday and not get sick of it or get hurt or killed.

I know that this question is like a 400 part question, but it is vital to drill down to the simple mundane stuff.

You can never really get anywhere unless you know where you are going. Too many of us are walking around in a trance. Just living each day, worse still – JUST EXISTING!

Dream BIG

Think about experience

Where would you live?

What would your house look like? Is it clean and tidy? What does it smell like?

What time would you wake up each day?

What would you do in the morning?

What would you think about? What would you say to yourself? What are your first thoughts?

What would you have for breakfast?

What would you spend the first half of your day doing?

What would you have for lunch?

Who would you eat with?

What would your friends be like?

What conversations would you have? Would there be celebration, fun or laughter?

Now, you have to answer this question as if to say whatever you write down you have to live that day – everyday for the rest of your life.

What would you do for personal fulfillment?

What life purpose would you strive towards?

What would your business be?

What time would you start work?

What would you do at work?

What are your clients like?

What are your relationships like? spouse, family, self?

What do you do with your family for fun?

What do you have for dinner?

What do you talk about?

What do you do at night? Who do you do it with?

What would your thoughts be as you drift off to sleep?

Be as specific as possible

Now, you don’t have to show this to anybody else but  sure that you read it everyday. The more detail you put in the more excited it will get you and the more likely you will take action steps to make it happen.

Tomorrow I will share mine, so that in 12 months time I can look back and see how close I got to my dream day.

I would love to hear yours if you are game enough to share.

Make everyday a fantastic day no matter what happens.

Looking forward to helping you live a longer, healthier, happier life.

Following a DREAM

For many years my husband and I have talked about the idea of packing up all our belongings and travelling around Australia with our two children. But, like many people it was just something that we only talked about and dreamt of.

How the Universe Works

In August 2010 we received a letter from our land lord stating that we needed to vacate the property that we were renting. As this is the third time this has happened to us in as many years we decided that the universe was trying to tell us something. It was time to follow our dream. 

First we thought that we would travel for 3 months. 

Then we decided 6 months would be better.

‘What the heck, it’s a big country and who wants to rush? – Let’s just go for 12 months’.

Just did it!

We had no clue about how we were going to do it, we just knew that we were going to make it happen. We researched websites, we spoke to other people who had done it and we did lots of reading. Thankfully we were able to borrow a caravan from a friend and we already had a 4WD.

Dec 2010 070

We enrolled our children in distant education, packed up our furniture into storage and gave notice at our J.O.B.’s.

So here we are, 3 weeks into our trip (we left from Melbourne) and we have only made it as far as Pambula. We are so excited about our journey and the fabulous things we are going to do and see together as a family.

Making it happen

Did we have thousands of dollars in the bank? – Definately not!

Are we a little scared about how we are going to get by? – Of course!

But we were not going to let fear hold us back.

One of the main commens we get from people is – ‘We’re so jealous. That’s something we’ve always wanted to do, but we just can’t’. My question is can’t or won’t. Because as I tell my children there is no can’t in life. If you want to do something bad enough you will just make it happen.

What are you not doing that you would really like to?

Are you going to say in a few years time ‘I wish I had done that’?

Follow our Journey

I will be posting about our adventures as well as about Health, Fitness, Lifestyle and Wellbeing on this site as we travel.

You can also keep up to date with our trip at www.2kidsandacaravan.com.au where Maddi and Riley will be posting blogs weekly. They will also be writing about different things they did and places from a teenagers point of view at www.throughteenageeyes.com

Tomorrow I will share my goals for 2011 and you can keep up to date with them throughout the year.

I would love for you to share yours also.

Have a fabulous day because that is what you choose.

Dee 🙂

No More Excuses

How many excuses do you use everyday to keep yourself overweight and unhappy?

How long are you going to let these excuses stop you from living the life you truly desire?

Think about it – over the years how many excuses have you used maybe not to go for a walk, not to go to the gym or not to eat healthy food?

How long have you been living on the excuses side of life? How long have you been disempowering yourself – taking away your own personal power by coming up with all sorts of crappy,lame excuses, all sorts of reasons to why you’ll fail, as to why you can’t even start, as to why you deserve that fat filled, sweet, starchy, sugary, lifeless, nutrition dense piece of food?success

The more you excuse yourself from being active, from drinking water, from eating healthy foods, the more you take away your own ability to succeed; you disempower yourself. You undermine the effectiveness of a healthy eating plan and activity plan.

When you do this you are basically letting yourself off the hook from getting healthy.

Is this what you want?

I don’t think so!

It’s time NOW to remove those excuses, to destroy them, to crush them, to stomp on all those excuses.

There is no time for excuses!

NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!!

Take some time to get comfortable and relax and allow this audio to help you let go of all the excuses that have been keeping you overweight and unhealthy.

Throw Away The Scales

Yes, you heard me, GET RID OF THE DAMN THING!!!!

Did you watch ‘The Biggest Loser’ this week? Poor Dave worked so hard, ate well and put on weight. Can you believe it? Did you see how devastated he was? Have you ever had this happen to you so you have just given up because you did not think that the hard work was worth it? Why we let a number on the scales determine how we feel?

I will let you in on a little secret “The scales do lie”. Meaning, there will be times when your body weight goes up, and your body fat goes down.  That is just how it is!

You will be burning fat and some of you, a lot of it. You will be putting on muscle. You will be decreasing the size of your waist, legs, shoulders, etc…Bottom line; you are burning fat from somewhere on your body. You don’t get to choose where your body you will burn the fat from, but rest assured, if you are following exactly what your slim coach is telling you, working hard on continually moving and training hard, you will burn fat.

If you are working out on a regular basis you have more muscle. Does muscle weigh more than fat? Well, not exactly … I mean a kg of muscle weighs a kg AND a kg of fat weighs a kg. So why do you always hear muscle weighs more than fat? Think of it this way – A kg of muscle is denser, firmer and takes up less space. Isn’t that really your goal … to be firmer and take up less space?

Why do we get so caught up on a number? Does this sound familiar?  “How come the scale isn’t moving? I am smaller, and my pants are looser or I know I am losing fat, but the scale says (‘gasp’!) that I gained weight!!”

If you are decreasing size and getting smaller, and know for a fact that you are burning fat, but you are still hung up on what your scale says…please, do yourself a favor, throw away your scales, and do it now. The only time you should see a number on the scales is during your slim appointment. Stop Letting this number rule your life and control how you think about yourself. Be proud of your efforts and know that your body is changing in positive ways.

If you want to measure success there are better tools than the scales.

  • How your clothes fit
  • Tape measure
  • Body fat percent
  • Cholesterol
  • Improved level of activity
  • How you feel (mood, do you sleep better, etc.)

If you are following an exercise and thy eating program, you will put on muscle, you will burn fat, and you will probably retain water. You also will get fitter, stronger and leaner. STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE SCALES!!

One more thing, you cannot expect to drop fat every single week. Your body will resist a lot. You have to keep changing things up so it does not get comfortable. Once your body reaches a state of efficiency, you will stop losing. Change it up.

It is time to change your attitude. You are on a health & fitness journey and are making permanent changes.  Why let a number determine your true results?
‘The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results’.

Some truths about cancer

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY (‘TRY’, BEING THE KEY WORD) TO ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY.
Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins:
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water – best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes purified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs energyetc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Cast le Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of! Fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
This is an article that should be passed on to anyone important in your life.

Beat Fat With Breakfast

By Holly Rigsby, CPT

Fit Yummy Mummy

Breakfast is easily the most overlooked solution when it comes to effective fat burning tips. Studies consistently show that people, who regularly eat breakfast, eat fewer calories throughout the day, have better nutritional habits, and weigh less than those who choose to skip breakfast.

When it comes to your fat loss, your goal is to make your body burn more calories. Your metabolism is like a burning fire, how can you make the fire burn stronger without putting something on it to burn? Our bodies are burning fat and calories 24 hours a day, however, calories are burned at the slowest rate while we are sleeping. Without something to jump-start it in the morning, your metabolism may remain in slow motion throughout the day and any extra calories – no matter how healthy – will be stored as fat. iStock_000003598007XSmall

The act of eating and digesting supportive foods frequently, increases your metabolism so you can burn more fat and calories all day long.

How to do it: Eat a supportive meal within an hour of waking. Feel like your always running late? No time to eat? The secret – get up 10-20 minutes earlier and keep it simple. Not only can you increase time spent with your family at the kitchen table, but making time to start your day off with a high protein, high fiber breakfast will boost your metabolism, your energy and your mood. Because breakfast provides you with the energy you need to get through your day, the more energy you have, the more active you’ll be and the more active you are, the more calories you burn.

If you are not hungry first thing in the morning, try starting your day with a big glass of water or freshly brewed green tea. Proceed with your morning routine and plan to allow yourself about 10-15 minutes before you walk out the door to eat your breakfast.

If you like to exercise first thing in the morning, eat 30 to 45 minutes before your workout.

Try one of the following options:

1. Eat a light snack – yogurt or a piece of fruit. Eat your regular breakfast 30-45 minutes after your workout.

2. Eat half of your regular breakfast before the workout and the other half about 30-45 minutes after your workout.

3. Drink a meal replacement shake – quick and easy to make and for your body too digest.

Watch out for “Protein/Breakfast Bars”. Many of these items seem appealing for they are quick and easy; however the majority of these bars are loaded with sugar and fat. Check the nutrition facts.

Here are some breakfast fat loss favorites: Cereal is a MUST. It’s convenient, easy to prepare, easy to eat and full of nutrients – No…”Whole Grain Lucky Charm” does not fall into this category. Be sure to choose your cereals based on the information on the food label.

The top choices should have:

• 5 grams of Fiber or more
• 8 grams of Sugar or LESS
• Sugar not listed among the first 3 ingredients.

For all other breakfast options, be sure to include a protein, complex carbohydrate, and fresh or frozen fruit. These are some of my favorites:

• Oatmeal with natural peanut butter, cinnamon and a side of fresh berries.
• Kashi Go Lean Crunch with skim milk and a banana.
• Scrambled egg whites topped with salsa and shredded cheese wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.
• Meal Replacement Shake with a piece of fruit.

So if you’re interested in fat loss, make sure you don’t forget – breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
