Women who do

do.jpg

Don’t wait for permission to get your life, health & wealth in order. Get out there & be MERMAZING. Excuses and doubt happen but it shouldn't become a defining factor.

TIP 1: Allow excuses to pass through you. Notice it but never let it make decisions for you. Let it pass.

Become a “DO-ER”

This blogpost is dedicated to every woman who pushed her self-care or self-respect aside, trying to help others.

The time has come to…

DO YOU

Get excited, keep reading & if this helped you then share it with a few friends.

You will always be more than average because YOU, my Dear, are REMARKABLE in every shape, size & color. So hold on to your “WHY” & make your “WHAT” happen.
— Ho'omalamalama

Stop trying to heal the world. Start healing yourself and the world will take notice. Start with YOU. Because if you're like me, we've seen the headlines and feel the hurt. Our first reaction is sorrow and maybe hopelessness. Sometimes we stop moving all together because we're chained by sadness. But that's when you use your WHAT to refocus and stay in motion.

TIP 2: THREE GEMS THAT I TEACH

  • Create a vision board of your, “WHAT.”

    • What brings you joy?

    • What makes you laugh?

    • What do you want to see more of?

    • What positive change will you create?

    • What do you need to make that change?

  • Make time to be still & quiet to connect with your “WHY.”

    • Meditation

    • Prayer

    • Journaling

  • Be a “DO-ER” or take action on one thing today.

HEALTH

Energize your fit schedule with an emotional connection to wellness. Develop a deep and rooted WHY into every squat, plank and burpee.

Commit to yourself & make the extra effort.

Do what the average person wouldn't.

Stay consistent, persevere and believe in the process.

WEALTH

Speaking of process, I was talking to my sister, fellow ZIN, about our goals.

She used the term, "the G-d process!" Which I understand as the willingness to have faith and keep moving forward.

It’s the ability to believe that good-things are meant to happen to you. Your WHY will keep you grounded as you walk bravely on.

Wealth is abundance in the mind, body & soul.

TIP 3: Your thoughts impact your life. Guard them & find a source of daily inspiration.

I shared in TIP #2 a few “WHAT” questions that will help you create a focused vision board.

After reading this blog, and sharing the link [wink, wink] take time to answer the questions. Then look for pictures or words that resonate with your answers.

Below are some of my previous focused vision boards.

How to RE-START

restart.jpg

“WELCOME BACK!”

We’ve all heard that term before and sometimes you can catch a hint of, “Where have you been?”

More often then not there’s questions, wonderment & even concern, but often we hear judgement.

Take fitness classes for instance; you start off strong and somewhere in the middle a distraction pops up then you stop. You want to go to class but you’re concerned about what others will say or think about you.

WHY?

Why do we assume the worst? Honestly… what’s wrong with our brain? Are we self-sabotaging?

First of all nothings wrong with your brain but a few adjustments might need to happen to your thoughts. Let me rephrase, “Stink’n think’n will hold you back.”

Now that we’ve cleared the path, by identifying the clutter [stink’n think’n], let’s dive into the title of this blog. So if you’ve ever set a goal and failed, no worries, because this is how to re-start after a break.

I am open to receiving good things into my life.
Good things are meant to happen to me.
I deserve unconditional love.

#1 Ignore Negativity

From self-talk to nay-sayers, just ignore them. In my eBook, Walk In Beauty, I share strategies to help you realign and re-fresh your thoughts.

TIP: Create a Pinterest board with positive words and quotes. Commit to reading them daily. Here’s an example.

#2 Move Your Body

Sitting still in negative thoughts is counterintuitive to reaching goals. So if you have a desire to tone-up, sitting in a pool of failed attempts will not serve you.

TIP: No matter what type of goal you have commit to doing one [1] thing daily. That’s one small step towards _______. [You name it.]

#3 Feed Your Soul With Happiness

Don’t wait for someone to make you happy or give you purpose. Get around happy people, reflect their joy and create purpose

TIP: Write down several reasons as to WHY you’re glad to re-start a project or fitness challenge. Post it on your fridge and read it daily.

#4 Allow Nature To Inspire You

How many times has it rained, stormed and thundered? Yet a tiny seed finds a home then sprouts a leaf. Nature has to overcome human occupation and it never relents. Mother Nature is an amazing resource of strength.

TIP: Grab a planner, I use a Make Mahalo Planner, then head outdoors. Feel the sun, breeze or raindrop on your skin and create a plan-of-action.

#5 Think “Longevity”

We mistake failures for death. We fail and assume that the dream or goal is dead. Often sweeping it under the rug of unfulfilled ideas. However, life goes on. A failed attempt is just a minor set back.

TIP: Adjust your plan and swap your schedule around. Make TIME, don’t wait for TIME. Because TIME is eternal, it never ends.


REVIEW

  1. MIND - Ignore Negativity

  2. BODY - Move Your Body

  3. SOUL - Feed Your Soul With Happiness

  4. NATURE - Allow Nature To Inspire You

  5. ETERNAL - Think “Longevity”


Fortunately each of the five areas mentioned come from the, “5 Realms Of Beauty” a teaching format which is written into Walk In Beauty. There are so many details that would not fit in a blogpost, which is why I wrote the eBook. Also, if you purchase the eBook it comes with printable[s] for every chapter. It’s sort of a workbook/manual to guide you on your journey.

ONE MORE THING

Keep looking up, things will get better. Mahalo for reading and please share this post with someone you care about. Let’s build a fit community together.

What if you don't feel like it!

motivate1.JPG

Have you ever hit snooze on the alarm [10x's] because you really don't want to do anything.

No fitness, no meal prep, no nothing! Just lay in bed and cozy up with your PJ's.

What if you don't want to go into work? Well, then you don't get paid or worse... you get fired. So what does one do? If there's money or job related responsibility involved we often push past our feelings and drudge on!

But what if you don't get paid to workout or eat healthy? Now what?! That's when you need serious MOTIVATION, and it should happen daily. [Why] Because you're building a nest of positivity.

Your “Nest Of Positivity” is a safeguard from the volatile changes of a weary world. Whose purpose is to drain you of your vibrancy.
— Ho'omalamalama

HOW TO BUILD A NEST OF POSITIVITY

Imagine every branch, stick or twig as a positive thought or inspiration. You are building something for the future, and that's how motivation works. It's a curated collection of good-thoughts. And when the winds of persecution, hate, drama, negative thoughts and the like come to destroy you, you have nothing to fear. All they're blowing against is a nest fortified with twigs of thoughtfulness and branches of beauty.   

[Speaking of beauty I know just the place to start click here.]

There are two things you can do right now to start building that nest; Evaluate & Eliminate.

FIT-FOODIE

I often treat my quinoa like rice. Growing up in Hawaii we were heavily influenced by Asian cultures. So it's not uncommon to have a rice bowl. Now I substitute rice for quinoa & I usually have kimchi with it.
