Tip of the Week

Roll with the punches! Life is gonna smack you right in the face when you don't expect it. If you're head's on straight, you're certainly gonna handle it just fine. Roll with it. Complain a little bit, and let it go.

Seeing Skinny

Today's Seeing Skinny is, actually, a more-involved lifestyle video. The video comes to us from WNYC's RadioLab, an incredible podcast that explores intangible ideas through science. I freaking love this show.

Anyway, one of their podcasts focused on the idea of "moments." A small thing, that is suddenly, well, just GONE. What is a moment? Do we really know? RadioLab's blog took a short take on the Moment, and came up with this moving visual interpretation, that I've watched at least four times.

Look for the artistry. Look for the connections. Then think about it. What kind of moments do you want your life comprised of? What can you do to get those moments to happen? Is health or weight loss a part of those moments? For me, they are. But I certainly don't want them to be the focus. So, that's what I should let my health goals be--moments. Every moment counts. And suddenly, it's just who I am. A stronger, more capable, woman. Strength is just an analogy, a visual interpretation of who you are. Disagree? Too bad. We live in a visual society. So--if you can't beat 'em, join 'em....and enjoy a longer, happier life as a result.

See the video, "Moments," HERE. or Here. Whatevs.

Also--I love the most recent Pixar film, "Up." It is a great representation of living out goals throughout a lifetime, regardless of the changes. You ARE strong enough to make today a good day. You DO have the ability to take care of yourself. Is it always easy? No. Is it always fun? No. But take care of yourself, and the rest of your life will fall into line.
