Day 22 – 8 to go!

I can’t believe we are here! Week 4. Every Monday we are supposed to do a “weigh-in” with our coaches. This consists of weight and 2 measurements. Everytime I’ve ever really tried to keep track of those numbers I do about 7 measurements. I’m not giving you start and finish numbers but I’m going toContinue reading “Day 22 – 8 to go!”

Day 15 -15 to go

Halfway there!! And I survived not being at my home for 4 days. Friday thru Saturday I was up at Hummingbird music camp mixing my shakes and teaching for 15 hours. Then Sunday till today MPE and I went on a mini-vacation in Truth or Consequences, NM. We stayed at Blackstone Hotsprings where we hadContinue reading “Day 15 -15 to go”

Day 10 – 20 to go

Today was the first day that I felt hunger in the middle of the day and when I was done teaching. It wasn’t crazy hunger but a “Hi, it’s time to eat something, you are going too long in between consumption” sort of hunger. I also think it may have  bit of phantom hunger fromContinue reading “Day 10 – 20 to go”

That one student…That one teacher!

As a private flute instructor, I’ve taught over 80 students in my short 12 years. I started fresh out of high school as I pursued my degree. Add in classes, clinics, ensembles and more, and I’m probably well over 200. That’s quite a stretch of personal human interaction and stimulation I get to have daily. AtContinue reading “That one student…That one teacher!”

Day 5 – 25 to go

MPE and I have been reading from the book “Rumi Day by Day” by Maryam Mafi. In the book there are 365 entries, each no longer than a couple sentences but evoking some inner thought. Yesterday’s reminded me how much we just keep trading our precious time here on earth for money… 7. “How canContinue reading “Day 5 – 25 to go”

Day 3 -27 to go

 I went to bed last night full of energy from the training session I had with my Executive Area Manager with Arbonne. I met Mari yesterday and her energy is absolutely infectious so when I went to bed last night feeling great, I thought it had to have been the adrenaline. I believed the awfulContinue reading “Day 3 -27 to go”

Day 2 – 28 to go

I am so glad I moved all my students from today to yesterday; yet after teaching them yesterday and receiving a 4-legged furry friend and waiting up for 2 2-legged friends, I was exhausted most of the morning! So exhausted and so drained from my detox and my long day yesterday, I experienced “the symptoms”.Continue reading “Day 2 – 28 to go”
