Sunday Pep Talk January 6 2019

Be good to yourself. 

That’s probably not what you expected me to say when you saw the words “pep talk” in the title.  But, that’s how I’d like everyone to act this week.  Be good to yourself, treat yourself well, and let the benefits begin! 


Pick one, and just one, aspect of your usual diet/exercise/skin care to change for the better.  Remember that you can’t change your whole world in a day, or even a month, so give it time.   Stop thinking about the “after” and focus on the “now”. 

Monitoring progress. 

Keeping a simple, old-school, written journal is really the way to go.  You can jot down your thoughts, ideas and results, at any time, and it goes anywhere with you – with or without a good wifi connection. 

My recommendation.  

Pick only one of the following to begin right now.  Remember you’re making permanent changes, so let’s be realistic about what we can keep in our lives moving forward.   Any one of these changes gets you off to a great start!

  • Drink two additional 8oz glasses of water per day.  You can add a slice of lemon, orange or grapefruit, but stay away from adding packets of anything at all.  Think simplicity here.
  • Stretch every single morning.  Stay to the basics.  Begin in Namaste.  Hold 10 seconds.  Stretch up/down and right/left.  While standing do some leg circles, then some ankle circles.  Raise your arms up while breathing in deeply and lower them on the exhale.  Number of reps is entirely up to you.  You’re done.  
  • Apply a good quality exfoliating mask from forehead to décolleté once per week.  Choose one that’s formulated for your skin type.  

I’ll be publishing my Pep Talks  every Sunday, both here on WordPress and on my YouTube Channel – The Beauty Mom.  It’s worth subscribing to my YouTube channel, because I won’t be posting the same content to both sites.  Come join my community there!

Feedback is always appreciated!  

Have a great week,

  1. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have felt like a failure so many times when my diet program didn’t work. Mostly, I hated what I was eating so I gave up. And gyms just don’t work for me at all. Too much competition in the ones around my area. I am taking your advice and putting it into action. Bit by bit and little by little. One day I’ll get where I want to be. But I will be living in the NOW until then! Love to you!


  2. This is fantastic and totally unlike what the rest do! One of things I hated about gyms was the whole push yourself attitude. It doesn’t work. If a woman is having trouble staying fit that’s the last thing she needs. What we do need is your good sense and sound thinking. Thank you so much – you changed my life!
