Helping women reshape their bodies and their baggage!
Weight Loss and Well-being Coach
What's in it for you? A connection, some challenges, a few questions to encourage you to simply reflect about how you live your life versus how you want to live your life. Feel free to share the answers with me: I'd love to hear from you. This is an invitation to focus on where you'd like to change and grow.
IN THIS ISSUE:
1. PERSONAL LIFE COACHING:
A lesson from Michael Jordan
2. IF YOU DON'T LOOK AFTER YOURSELF WHO WILL?
Still short on zzzzzs? FIVE LUCKY WOMEN!
3. FOOD FOR THOUGHT AND THOUGHTS ON FOOD.
Fooling ourselves or being fooled?
4. THOUGHTS FROM MY SWING:
1: A lesson from Michael Jordan
"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan
You must have noticed that last month's Wise Words had a few errors. And you undoubtedly don't want to read my excellent excuses explaining how that happened. When I realized the errors, I definitely did a little self-beating. Then taking a page out of Michael Jordan's book, I tried to focus on the learning and hopefully doing a better job this month.
So when are you hard on yourself? When can you not let go of imperfections? Perhaps when you're hesitant about taking a new risk, you could consider Michael Jordan's very wise words.

2: Part 1. Still short on zzzzzs?
Last month's article about sleep addressed some major issues that prevent an adequate rest, along with suggestions for remedies (http://wisecoaching.ca/newsletters/ezine_July_2008.htm ). If you still aren't getting the zzzzzs you long for, see if any of the following pitfalls might have your name on them.
Part 2. FIVE LUCKY WOMEN
FIVE LUCKY WOMEN will be participants in the upcoming program! THE 12 WEEK WEIGHT LOSS TELECLASS
Participants, who are genuinely committed to losing weight and who follow through on techniques discussed, will experience weight loss, fabulous support from other women who share their struggle, a long-term solution to their weight problems, insights into their misuse of food and so much more.
* 12 Tuesdays, beginning Sept. 16, 5:30 to 6:30 eastern

3: Fooling ourselves or being fooled?
"Then I did some SERIOUS weighing and measuring, and the results weren't pretty. First of all, each serving is supposed to weigh 31 grams and measure out at one cup. I measured a cup of cereal and it weighed 46g -- far from 31. In fact, 31 grams of that Special K Red Berries cereal measured out to be about two-thirds of a cup." (from the Hungry Girl website http://www.hungry-girl.com)
Here’s what likely happens. I have full confidence that the package info is correct when the cereal leaves the factory. In transition there's some settling of the product inside – so the contents become denser.
Chances are that if you're using any kind of measure to monitor your food intake, you want to be aware of exactly what you're consuming. Honestly speaking, if you really want accuracy use a kitchen scale, not a measuring cup for a true serving size!
One of my dear, long-time friends is ill. Frankly, the treatment sucks. The prognosis holds no promises – lots of maybes. After a hospital visit yesterday, I sit and contemplate his outlook and attitude. There is no blame or woe-is-me element. There are no complaints. He seems to understate his discomfort and suffering at every opportunity. His sense of humour and interest in the rest of the world remain intact!
I am in awe of his way of managing his trap.
So here on my swing I ponder: coping appears so natural for some and so laboured for others. Eckhart Tolle touched on this in his first book, "The Power of Now". I'm sure many others have explored this dilemma. I ask my friend and he shrugs. Anyone out there have a recipe?
Wishing you what you wish for yourself - and great coping for whatever comes your way.
