Episode 40

Featuring: Overcoming Fear, Bex Life, Cavegirl Confections, Happy Feet and Prezi Presentations

 

"Me afraid? Ha!"

“Me afraid? Ha!”

 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you my lovelies? Good? Glad to hear that. This week I have been busy with getting my presentation all sorted out for my portion of the “Writing the Perfect Pitch” workshop for this year’s Fitbloggin and I must admit—I have the case of the nerves! This isn’t my first time speaking in front of people but it IS my first time using a program called Prezi and I just want to be worthy of sharing the stage with the superb Alexandra Williams and Kymberly Williams-Evans of Fun & Fit.org and the sublime Jamie Walker of Fit Approach. (Biting my nails in anticipation!)

I know it will be a great presentation and I am so excited to get a chance to help my fellow Fit Bloggers get their message out there. So I guess you can call these the “good” kind of nerves to have because it means I care and will give it my all?

However– I am having old feelings returning to my life and I do not think it has anything to do with what could be an immediate “unknown” in my life (presenting at Fitbloggin.). Rather, on a much deeper level I am incredibly anxious about the my uncertainty of my future. Don’t be alarmed—I am not sick or in dire straits (thank goodness!) but the last time I woke up every day feeling the way I do I quit my high powered job, went freelance and started teaching spin classes in my “free time.”

Hang on to your knickers everyone because I feel changes coming my way—big time!

These past few months my life has been twisting and turning in new directions with old stuff falling away and new things trying to make their way in and for some reason I have felt very “stuck.” Do you ever get like that? Like on the one hand you know you need to shake things up in your life in order to get where you need to be but are just so damn afraid of anything “new?” I really need to “unstuck” myself and embrace the wild and wooly aspects of living without fear.

Do you know about Bex of the fabulous Bex Life.com? (Of course you do—she is a goddess!) Anyhoo—Bex recently posted on her site Learn to Fall In Love With Fear and that is the motto I am going to use to get me through the next few months. I am going to learn to embrace uncertainty and anticipate good things coming into my life.

Who is with me? Let’s do this thing together dammit!

Now with that sorted out I wanted to take a moment and congratulate my good friend Marrilee Wilson of Halifax, Nova Scotia for becoming a certified yoga instructor through Moksha Yoga Halifax. (So happy you are finally making it to NYC this week!)

And now for this week’s Blog post:

  • I talk about dealing with fear about the future.
  • My ongoing love for Cavegirl Confections—seriously you people need to try this stuff. (http://www.cavegirlconfections.com/)
  • The “Happy Feet” program that is starting up soon at the Canyon Ranch spa and includes a groovy new item call Sole Engergizers.
  • My latest magazine reviews of Bicycling, Prevention, Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health and Men’s Journal.

That’s it for me this week folks. Talk to you all next week!!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Today the sun is shining and I am getting in the mood for spring. What better time than to reach out to y’all and say “hey” and offer my next giveaway? No better time, say I so let’s jump right in shall we?

Featured on my Vlog this week:

  • The importance of wearing a helmet every single time you take your bike out. (EVERY DAMN TIME!)
  • I ruminate on learning how to ask for what you want in life.
  • The most excellent social media class you can take is the “Social Academy” headed up by two powerful women—Danny J of The Sweaty Betties and Bex of Bex Life. If you sign up through my very own link you can get $50 off the price. (So what are you people waiting for?)

Now let’s check out today’s Vlog post!

More information about The Paleo Coach by Jason Seib:

“You’re ready. You want greater health, more vitality, and a stronger, better looking body.

You’re convinced that Paleo is the way to go. And you’re smart enough to know that a major lifestyle change doesn’t come easily. You need intelligent, ongoing support.

That’s where The Paleo Coach comes in. Author Jason Seib, a bona fide lifestyle, fitness, and nutrition expert, has helped thousands of people successfully make the same transition. He knows what works and what doesn’t—in the gym, in the kitchen, and, especially, in your mind. Few people understand the mechanics of self-change as thoroughly as Seib does. And he brings that wisdom to every page of The Paleo Coach, guaranteeing that you’ll have the motivation you need to keep progressing despite the inevitable obstacles that arise when you try to replace ingrained habits and resist cultural norms. Seib is not content to just tell you what to do—he also makes sure you understand why, so you can make his hard-earned wisdom your own. With the right perspective, it’s easier to turn new, good habits into permanent ones.

If you’re looking for a practical, holistic, science-based approach that brings together all the aspects of the Paleo lifestyle, this is the book for you. The Paleo Coach is indispensable if you’re serious about “going Paleo” and sustaining the momentum until your strong, beautiful body is functioning as nature intended it to and you can’t imagine living any other way.”
