First memories are rather interesting because you are never quite sure just how accurate they are. It’s either because you were very young or you have revisited the memory so many times over the years that it evolves with each revisit. I do have an early memory and when I talked to my mom about it awhile back, she said, “It is impossible that you remember that, you were only a year and a half old!”
My first memory is being strolled by my mom down the street on a nice spring morning. I saw a lady sitting in a green and white garden chair watching people walk below her balcony. She was in all black, from head to toe, including a scarf on her head which covered up her hair. This lady was old with very wrinkled skin and she didn’t have any teeth in her mouth. She smiled at us as we were approaching and my mom stopped below the balcony, they had a few words and then we kept walking. I don’t remember what they...
I've been asked what it means to meal prep and how does it look like? I have to prepare four or five meals, different meals and spend all these hours ... And it's not about that.
Meal prep, it means that you go to the store and you buy several things. One is a whole bunch of different vegetables, the other thing can be some whole grains, like brown rice or semi-grains like quinoa, and two or three different types of proteins that you would like to have. For example, you can have chicken or you can have any kind of fish, or you can have tofu. Then when you go home, you just cut the vegetables, you still fry them, you cook the rice or the quinoa, then you still fry or bake the fish and the chicken. Then put everything in boxes and during the week you just mix!
Good morning everybody. Happy Monday!
Do you have a specific habit for meal prep through the week?
I always recommend to my clients, and myself, to meal prep during the weekend. It's very simple, it makes life easier, and if you have food ready for the whole week, it will be less likely that you make a poor choice about eating something unhealthy, fast and quick.
What I recommend is going shopping Saturday or Sunday, or the day that you have off, and right after shopping drop your things in the kitchen and meal prep right then and there. Don't wait, don't put things in the refrigerator, because it's less likely that you will feel inspired to do it. So right after shopping is the best time to do it.
I hope this tip helps you, and I hope you create a new healthy habit!
Today, I woke up with a wicked headache. That means only one thing, that I need to have one day of self-care. First thing I did this morning is go for a walk. I did my morning routines and went for a massage. I feel much better and my headache is completely gone, but I will still keep working today only on self-care. That's a very important one too.
Don't forget about taking care of yourself, love yourself a lot, and spend the weekend just, you know, feeling yourself. Oh, another thing that I'm going to do today is be in nature. I'm going for a hike, but not for exercise, I am going for a hike to spend time in nature, feel it and connect with myself.
Have a wonderful weekend!
As I was walking in downtown, beautiful San Luis Obispo, I was reflecting on the weekend. How everything went and you know there are things that don't work out so well. But I hold onto the things that are really truly amazing, and every week I have some miracle happen.
I was thinking not only in how much gratitude I feel when I can help somebody to get rid of medication. Right now, I feel so grateful because I am certifying people to do the same for so many more. I can't imagine a world where barely anybody needs medication. So it's just amazing.
I'm just grateful and I just wanted to let you know and have a wonderful, wonderful Sunday!
This morning I had to get ready to go to one of my client's doctor's appointment, and the reason is because today was her last appointment with the diabetes doctor. She was sick with diabetes for years, she was taking medication and she was also taking insulin injections because of her Type 2 diabetes.
After working for a period of time with me and doing exactly what I told her to do, finally, with her doctor, we got her off insulin. So, this is a very difficult thing to make happen but when you are taking care of yourself, there is nothing more rewarding and there is no better investment than that one.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Good morning, how are you?
One of the most important routines that I do is study. I study every single day. It doesn't have to be a long time, it can be 15 minutes, it can be 20 minutes, in the time that I have. And what I do at the point is I don't study, I don't pretend to read the full chapter because I will do it fast and it's not worth it.
So I just try to read one paragraph, or one page, but understand what the writing is saying. That's the most important thing. I like to study about the science of the mind or brain health and its structure. This is what I like to do. And I have a variety of others. I like Thomas Troward, most of them, Napoleon Hill, Walter Wattles and other authors.
So, just be curious and keep your mind bright!
Good morning guys, how are you?
Another amazing routine that I like, not like, I love and enjoy every day, is my breakfast. I love having a good breakfast, like coconut yogurt unsweetened, blueberries and walnuts. That fills me up and makes me feel ready to take the day. To me it's very important to eat before I get out of the house, not only because I guess I am used to it but also, it just makes me feel full of energy.
Have a wonderful breakfast!
Routines are nothing else but habits that we do consistently. Sometimes it doesn't have to happen every single day. It can happen one or two days a week, but if we do it consistently that becomes a routine.
So today, Mondays and Tuesdays, one of my morning routines is to go to the gym. Usually I go in the afternoon, but those two days I go in the morning because in the afternoon I have a group. So, be very productive today and be aware that routines don't have to happen every single day.
Have a wonderful day!
Good morning, guys!
I am heading to LA today. It's 5 am, so its dark outside still.
The morning routines, sometimes are made to be broken. We have to be flexible. We can be structured, we can be consistent, but we don't have to be attached to what we do every single day.
So, today I have no time to do my morning routines, so the routine has to change. And that's okay too. As long as we are prepared or conscious and if we want to do it at night, the last thing before bed, that's okay. So, just be flexible and be open to what can come your way.
Have a wonderful day!
