Changing My Mindset

Changing My Mindset

Changing My Mindset

I haven’t been thinking much on about my body in the past month.   I’ve been focusing on my mind and concentrating on my career. Changing my mindset.

It’s difficult changing careers in midlife.  I have decided that maybe I need to change my way of thinking and have a more positive outlook.

Changing my mindset has been tough. I have a difficult time focusing on one thing.  I have been keeping my meditation appointments every day for the past month. I’ve been doing some meditation every morning and at night before bed.  When I meditate on a daily basis, things seem to go better in my life.

The two meditations I do are Bob Proctor Abundance Meditation in the morning and 6 Phase Guided Meditation by Vishen Lakhiani at night.  I’m focusing on abundance and confidence.

I think I’m getting more confident because recently I posted a review of a skin care product, Xtend-Life and I included a full picture of my face.  Last year I wouldn’t have done that.  You can read the review here.

The products from Xtend-Life have been some of the best I’ve ever used.  I have been struggling with my skin due to perimenopause and cannot believe the changes.  I have also noticed a change in my hair.  It’s fuller and there was a spot along the hairline where hair hasn’t grown in a very long time.  Hair is growing there now.  That was a bonus!

Things are changing for me, slowly.  My career in social media marketing hasn’t taken off like I hoped it would, but  I have become more creative.  I love posting my photos on Instagram.  My travel photos got the attention of Travel, Set, Go.  They have asked me to be an Ambassador.  Check out my Instagram photos here.  And be sure to follow me, I follow back.

Gettin’ Lean In 2013 Update: Week 20

 Fitness Yoga Or Dance Silhouette Royalty Free Stock Images - Image: 4609199

Week 20 was a great week.  I did my workouts every day.  Actually looking forward to the Yoga and meditation.  I would stop what I was  doing and did it the same time every day. So this is a major accomplishment for me.  My diet was good.  Tried to make sure to remember the Short and Sweet healthy habits from the previous weeks as well as to add the new ones.  At the end of the week I started the Go Fit Gals 3 Day Reset.  I was a bit nervous about it, but I did it with a Twitter buddy Angela.  We supported each other through the whole thing.  The first day I was ok.  Woke up Saturday morning with a terrible headache.  Did the Yoga and meditation and then drank the morning smoothie.  I was ok, but I didn’t truly feel better until Saturday afternoon.  Sunday I felt fantastic.  Well rested and a lot of energy.  I did Yoga, meditation and went for a long walk with the kids.  I lost 3.5 pounds.  I look and feel tighter.

The Go Fit Gals recommend that we do the 6 Week Shape Up backwards after completing the 3 Day Reset. This will be my second time doing it. Check out how I did the first time here.   I will be doing that along with Fitness Blender workouts thrown in on days when a 6 Week Shape Up workout isn’t scheduled. I also will be doing Do You Yoga’s 30 day Yoga challenge. And this is the last week for the Gaiam TV 14 day Spring Cleanse.  I will be doing the meditation videos.
