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,

Crazy Dreams But They Are All Mine

Darn right.  Every one of them.  

It’s never been enough for me to dream all by itself.  I have always been that girl who wanted to “do” not just “dream”.  And so it makes me a little out of the norm.  A little crazy I guess LOL

But it’s good crazy.  

Let me tell you.  There’s nothing like it on Earth.  Because you see, crazy, in a good respect, is the best way to live.  You are free from worrying about being “normal” – whatever that is.  You march to your own drummer and you go down paths that are rocky, and sometimes you worry that you can’t get another 5 feet down the lane, but you find a way.

And that’s what this lady is doing.  

I swear there are days when it feels like I’m walking down a road that’s riddled with potholes and I’m wearing 5-inch heels.  Yup.  It’s hard to do and keep your balance.  But, the next morning I wake up and realize that I’m doing it.  Following this crazy dream of mine.  And not doing too badly either.

It’s good to be crazy

Want to motivate others.  

Oh yes.  That’s part of what keeps me going.  All of you here online who have been AMAZING supportive mean the world to me.  And there are many moments that I think about your fantastic comments and encouragement and think “I’m keeping the faith.  I’m going to show everyone who believes in me that I am still going strong.  No matter what.”

How I’m doing anyway.  

Right now I’m about to submit out to 3 different television shows.  I’m excited.  And I’m confident that one may just click.  So if/when it all comes together I’ll be posting back here and letting you know. Shouting out.  Maybe from the roof.  You never know with crazy people.  When they get all fired up with excitement they do that.  Stand on the roof.  Shooting off fireworks.

Geez.  It’s wonderful.  This crazy-woman thing!

Much love and thanks out to all,
