Earn your HAPPINESS!

Earn your Happiness

How many times do we expect others to make us happy or we feel if we reach a certain goal in our lives that will bring us the happiness we desire; when in fact it’s just the opposite. Happiness is an internal job, we must make the choice on a daily basis to find the happiness that lies within us.

As many of you know I have made the choice to expand and grow my fitness business with another gym and I am so happy and grateful for this opportunity that lies before me. With all of the packing, cleaning, preparation of the new location and ensuring my team is well taken care of, it’s been a time of true reflection for me and my years as a sole gym owner.
I have worked hard, made sacrifices, worked countless hours, laughed, cried, meet some of the best people around, developed relationships, created more opportunities for growth, wrote best selling books, trained celebrities, traveled with my Ambassador Shabazz to Belize to serve and share my talents with kids, and women, created and trademarked Bootoga® and so much more. The point to listing these accomplishments is to remind myself that I have earned every ounce of happiness that is in each experience. I smile as I write about them because there is internal joy and happiness for what I have accomplished and for what I am going to create going forward.

There have been countless times when a challenge or an expectation of mine did not go through, yet I was taught valuable lessons and the most amazing doors were opened for me in ways I would not have imagined and then once again…I was taught joy and happiness are an inside job. Nothing external can make us happy, being fit on the inside is where our truth resides.

It’s with a grateful heart that I release my “physical” location of the gym only to create more community and family in our new home. I am so thankful for every person who has walked through my doors, you are  or have been a crucial part of my journey and I hope to continue the beauty, creation, and love with all of you!

I AM LOVE, I AM UNIQUE, I AM ABUNDANT

Has it always been easy for me? NO! Is it easy for me now? NO!

I’ve worked hard for everything that I have accomplished. I take pride in my passion and my purpose and I’m honored and grateful when others recognize it in me and it turns into an opportunity to be published as a cover model to share my story in hopes that it will inspire many other beautiful women to pursue their passions and to be patient for the right people and opportunities to come into their lives.

I want to share a few tips with you that I’ve learned along my journey:
1) Be clear of your passions.. what makes your heart sing and do those everyday!
2) Release FEAR. Easier said then done but be honest with yourself and ask; what am I truly afraid of in this situation/circumstance? Start to visualize the fear leaving your body and thank it for the lesson.
3) Just ASK! Sometimes we just need to GO FOR IT! What’s the worst thing that can happen? Someone says NO to you, can you handle that? Absolutely, take nothing personally! Move on to the next prospect and focus on your goal.
4) A great quote from my dear friend and co-author Tim Cole, in The Little Black Book of Fitness;
“The person with an experience will out perform the person with a theory every time”! The context behind this is that your experience matters! Don’t ever feel not good enough, no degree, etc, your time in the trenches matters! MOVE forward and go for what you want!
5) Know that your audience and the people you are here to reach are waiting for what you have to share! Get out of your own way and own who you are. Go forth and help others with your message, your experience, your story and your bright light. Smile and share your love and watch it come back to you 10 fold!

Lastly…. ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY… this is truly where the Magic happens!

Healthy tips for the 4th of July!

Healthy tips for the 4th of July

Health on the 4th of July! 

Independence day, Fireworks, Family BBQ’s, hot dogs, chips, alcohol and fun in the sun! How much better can it get?
Here’s a FEW tips to survive the 4th of July splurge!

  1. Plan time for exercise. Exercise helps relieve the 4th of July eating stress and prevent weight gain. A moderate and daily increase in exercise can help partially offset increased holiday eating. Try 10 or 15-minute brisk walks twice a day.
  2. Don’t skip meals. Before leaving for a party, eat a light snack like raw vegetables or a piece of fruit to curb your appetite. You will be less tempted to over-indulge.
  3. Survey party buffets before filling your plate. Choose your favorite foods and skip your least favorite. Include vegetables and fruits to keep your plate balanced.
  4. Eat until you are satisfied, not stuffed. Savor your favorite holiday treats while eating small portions. Sit down, get comfortable, and enjoy.
  5. Be careful with beverages. Alcohol can lessen inhibitions and induce overeating; non-alcoholic beverages can be full of calories and sugar.
  6. If you overeat at one meal go light on the next. It takes 500 calories per day (or 3,500 calories per week) above your normal/maintenance consumption to gain one pound. It is impossible to gain weight from one piece of pie!
  7. Bring your own healthy dish to a holiday gathering.
  8. Take the focus off of FOOD and enjoy the company of your friends and family!
BE SAFE and have a beautiful 4th of July celebration!

Do you “should” all over yourself and others?

I recently attended a fundraiser and the keynote speaker asked a GREAT question to us all. Do you constantly “should” all over yourself or others? Meaning: I “should’ have done that, they “should” leave their job, they “should” go to the gym, I “should” have worked out harder, my kids “should” have straight A’s.
Does this sound familiar? I am definitely guilty of what I call the “should syndrome”. I catch myself and have learned to take a step back to truly view my “judgement” of my actions or thoughts and take a few minutes to let it go.
How quickly we judge ourselves and others, it is a daily habit to tame down the judgement. When we judge others, we make them “wrong” and most of the time without even knowing their circumstance, situation or story. Who are we to judge and “should” someone when we ourselves are struggling with the same issue?
The keynote speaker went on to share that one of her favorite people in the world was a dear friend of hers who never once told her she “should” do something, instead her friend always listened and reminded her of her greatness, beauty and love. The speaker continued her story, she was down in the dumps, knew she wasn’t in a good situation at that time yet the non-judgement of her friend is what helped light up the correct path for her to pursue. Now that is true love and compassion at it’s finest.
Even though we feel our intentions may be good, are we truly in the position to “should” our opinion on someone if not asked?
I’ve been thinking about this all week long. I shared it with my “Champion Mindset Workshop” group this week. We may know someone’s name, but we never know their full story. Have compassion, love and acceptance for others and especially for ourselves. This is one aspect of having a champion mindset and definitely something to think about.

With love and acceptance,
Jeanette

Radiate Confidence

Radiate Confidence

It has been a whirlwind these few months, my passion book project was finally released and we hit #1 Amazon Best Seller in 6 categories after a year in the making! What a great achievement yet exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. I finally had some time to sit at the beach and take it all in. I had no idea this would bring up so many emotions. I’ve been receiving text messages, emails, pictures of people with their books all thanking me for what I had created. They couldn’t put the book down and it helped re-inspire people to take charge of their life again.I began to cry tears of joy, what I had wanted to share for so long was now making an impact on so many people. There are times we overlook what we have created and we need to take a step back and “be” with the emotion, the accomplishment and the love. I thank God daily for the vision he gave me, for the confidence to believe that I could do this and for the courage it took to press on throughout the twelve months that I worked at it. Our accomplishments show us time and time again the amazing strength, courage, wisdom and confidence we truly have inside, some days we may not see or feel it but it’s always there. I want to encourage you today to finish whatever project you are working on, stay connected to your “why” and press on knowing that you have the confidence and strength to complete it.

“Don’t Wrestle, Just Nestle”

Wrestle or Nestle?

Wrestle or Nestle?

I was in a book store the other day and saw a book entitled, “Don’t Wrestle, Just Nestle”, that title stuck with me and it got me thinking.

How many times in life when things are not going our way do we start to wrestle with life and ourselves? We get frustrated, angry, fearful and all the emotions of discomfort come up and we just can’t seem to be calm or find any moments of stillness?! When in fact, if we would nestle into the discomfort, breathe, take a step back and look for opportunities of growth and learning there may be a much better solution that would appear…. BUT how challenging is that, right?

We seem to want to fight and wrestle with what isn’t working out our way instead of nestling up to the idea that there is a better way for this particular circumstance and it’s a blessing in disguise teaching us something that we must learn in this part of our life. Why wrestle and waste time and energy when in fact more would be accomplished if we nestle up to the situation and trust that there is something much more grand waiting for us. If we would only take the time to truly be authentic with ourselves and investigate deeper into what is being taught to us at this particular time. Where’s our trust, faith and confidence in these moments? Are we attached to an outcome that may not happen? Will life endure if the outcome is different from what we anticipated?

Here’s 3 steps to gain that perspective:

  1. Stop, take a step back and BREATHE….. get into the present moment
  2. Take an authentic look at what’s working in this situation and what’s not working, what’s missing and how can it be improved
  3. Evaluate your intentions and what your true purpose in life is, does this align with your “WHY”?

Remember everything in life happens for a reason, usually a lesson and many times a celebration of how far we have come. Where our attention goes, energy flows.. so which will it be for you; Wrestle or Nestle?

How beautiful LOVE can be…

It's all about LOVE

It’s all about LOVE….

Today I was in a deep conversation about LOVE…. and it really got me thinking.. what does the word LOVE mean to me? We all have different perceptions, meanings and visions of what love should look like and if it doesn’t appear the way we feel it should then we deem it wrong. When the real question is… What does your inner self-love look like? What is within us in order for it to show outward? The Journey of love starts within which translates into what degree of love are we able to give and receive. In this day and age where the WORLD needs more love, if we don’t love ourselves how do we expect to show and love others in our world? Love is a self-reflection, if we don’t see love in others, we aren’t love. To have love we need to be love and I’m not just talking about personal relationships, it’s so much deeper than that. To love ourselves requires work, it requires being vulnerable, authentic and walking a life of integrity. This sounds great but can we truly be with what love requires from us…..?

I was listening to one of my favorite artists, Common and his song, Love Is…

“How beautiful love can be, on the streets love is hard to see, it’s a place I got to be, loving you is loving me, how beautiful love can be, we gotta raise that frequency”

Let’s work on raising our frequency of the beauty of LOVE!  -Jeanette
