Welcome to the second week of my 90 day journey… Week 1 was definitely a challenge for me, you don’t know how hard it is to give up heavy carbs, especially when everyone around you is eating them and your secret weakness is bread.  But I prevailed and managed to only indulge in a couple bruschetta and lasgna this past week.  Drinking extra water was hard at times and I found out the hard way not to drink your whole 80 ounces in one sitting, I literally was in and out of the bathroom 10 times in an hour.  I…

I had the privilege of attending a Jack Canfield live seminar today.  It was Exceed Your Goals in 2012 based on !  I cannot put into words how inspiring it was.  We literally covered everything from taking 100% responsibility of your life,  setting a breakthrough goal, and taking action!  There was so much in such a short time all I can say is I am feeling so inspired today, what a great way to start the week after my fantastic coaching call with Lora at Rock Your Yoga Biz!  The best part for me about the seminar was I felt in the…
