PREP, PREP, PREP! Candid Monday Motivational Vlog

YT_FoodPrep

Is your fridge always empty so you grab something quick like fast food?

Do you rely on coffee or Red Bull to give you a boost?

Are you lethargic and your mood dips throughout the day? 

It’s time to get it together sista and prep your meals and snacks for the week ahead. This has revolutionized my energy and mood levels. When I’m hungry I turn into Medusa (just ask Aaron) and not only get grumpy, but I get shaky and lethargic. I rarely allow myself to get to this point now, but when this does happen I will eat anything…I mean, anything! Even McDonald’s or Taco Bell! Eeeeek. Now that’s scary.

Plan a day that works for you- Sunday is great– to prep some meals, snacks and grill some chicken breasts. (if you’re not a vegetarian) It makes me so happy to open the fridge and have a fresh pot of soup, some tuna fish, chicken breasts, chopped veggies and fruit ready to go so we never have to experience Medusa!

Here’s a candid video from my kitchen just encouraging you to prep, prep, prep!

DUH! Stop Counting Your Burdens [Candid Video Blog]

Are you bored with the topic of gratitude yet? Everywhere you turn this month people are talking/posting/tweeting about the subject. WooHoo…that makes me very very happy especially for you cynical sistas who think it’s all just a rah rah month long pep rally. Those are the people who need the reminders most. Never underestimate the power of a grateful heart. By the end of the year, I need this reminder as well. October was a challenging month and I felt myself slipping into my whiny complaining mode. It’s a slippery slope that begins the minute we begin to talk about our problems & burdens more than we talk about our blessings. The pollution began to cloud my mind and judgement. Duh! Stop counting your burdens Tiff. Who feels me?

If you’ve been on the SOS Facebook Page at all this month you have seen my gratitude posts. I’ve got to tell you- focusing on fine tuning my gratitude practice has been a beautiful experience. After a difficult month in October, this month has been down right glorious. Yes, I said glorious! How about you? Did you join in on the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge? I would love to hear your insight and experience. Make a comment! 

It’s not magic. It takes deliberate focus and a mental shift which leads to a daily practice and lifestyle. I never share or teach concepts that I haven’t worked through myself. I began years ago with a simple, childlike gratitude list which expanded to the details of why I was grateful for something. Check out some of the Facebook posts. Try it. Please. 

A disciplined practice of gratitude truly is the key to a joy-filled & abundant life. 

READ THAT AGAIN.

A disciplined practice of gratitude truly is the key to a joy-filled & abundant life. 

Don’t you want to live the life of your dreams? To be truly happy and filled with joy on a regular basis not just sometimes?

That’s what you deserve and YOU can make the change, sista.

I am grateful for all of you.

Thank you for choosing to be better today than you were yesterday.

Thank you for allowing your light to shine among the darkness.

Thank you for seeing all the beauty around you in the midst of  much ugliness in this world.

Thank you for loving you.

Thank you for feeding your soul instead of starving it.

Thank you,

Tiff
