The Joy of Thanksgiving

The Joy of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! This time of year, the energy in the air is filled with thanksgiving as people from all walks of life are thankful for the many blessings in their lives. I too am extremely grateful... My heart overflows with thankfulness and delight as I relish in the love of my family and the abundance I am continually blessed with.

Thanksgiving is a beautiful reminder to reflect and appreciate the infinite blessings received daily. It opens our hearts and minds to that which is plentiful in our lives and brings a sense of peace and gratitude. Having an attitude of gratitude is the foundation to happiness and fulfillment. 

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of love, joy, peace and happiness in our lives. It turns what we have into enough, and attracts more to be grateful for. It turns sadness into gladness, lack into plenty, changes confusion to clarity, and resentment into love. It can turn a simple meal into a feast, a house into a loving home, a stranger into a dear friend. It can heal the downtrodden heart and uplift the soul. It is the gift of giving and the essence of receiving.

This Thanksgiving, start a gratitude journal. Write three things you are grateful for each day. And as you retire for the night, give thanks for all that you have—including your miraculous body. Then go about your day uplifting others, complement and show appreciation to those you interact with, be kind, gracious, and giving. 

May this Thanksgiving be filled with fond memories to cherish for a lifetime... and may love and gratitude fill your heart and home.

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
