Hey, we're taking a short break. We will be back soon!

New me, who dis?

New me, who dis?

The last five months of getting 1% better each day has led me here, where I’ve designed my life in a way to allow me to tackle writing my first book (with a lot of help), I’ve officially lost 50 pounds now, I feel great and I know, without a doubt, that I don’t give up on myself anymore.

Why not me?

If you are waiting something out, afraid to ask for the help you know you need, concerned about what it will make you look like to take the meds...I want you to know it takes a lot of strength to ask for help, especially when shame has kept you paralyzed about it.

Go get the help. It makes you a badass, because badasses CHOOSE to do hard things.

Finding my Reason

Finding my Reason
I’m working through my internal angst that my Pam pointed out (she’s mine, but I will share her). Inside GRIT is where we do the hard work on ourselves, but I’m going to share it with you out here so you can travel this journey with me in real time. Just know, when I’m working through things, it seems like I’m all over the place, and that’s because I am.

But if you watch me write my way through something you’ll have a better understanding of what we do in GRIT besides just work out.

A perfect story is a boring story.Today I went to riding lessons for the first time in many weeks.I had Dakota and I haven’t ridden her in at least...

Unimportant conversation that isn’t going to let me learn about you seems like a waste of time. I understand that is how you “break the ice” with people but I just can not seem to people correctly.

Talk to me about small talk. Not if you like it, because I can’t imagine anyone likes it, talk to me about if you can do it. (Ok, if you like it, tell me that because I can’t fathom a world where someone likes small talk).

Who is your Pam?

Who is your Pam?
GRIT writing forces you to examine yourself and then handle your business. I know whatever decisions I make are going to be unpleasant in some way or another, so rather than attack that head on, I was pretending to myself I just needed a “break”. As Pam said, I wanted to be an ostrich, sticking my head in the sand and only coming up to see if everything was still the same. Then burying my head back down again upon the realization that it is, in fact, still the same.

She also hit me between the eyes with, “You know the answer. You just don’t want to do it.”

So, I'm writing a freaking book

Business Crossroads

Business Crossroads
After trying to run from them, ignore them, hope they got better, talk about it with Chris 500 times, try new software, etc etc etc, I faced the music yesterday and did the hard things.

I can’t create a code and then not live by it. Working out is hard but it’s easy in comparison to facing the fact that your business as you know it has to change if it’s going to survive.

Rest Don't Quit

Rest Don't Quit
Right now, I would’ve quit on myself though. But...GRIT means I won’t. That’s what will keep my 1% transformation moving forward, teeny tiny little steps at a time. Each time I rest and don’t quit is a 1% improvement.

Today I will rest, when I normally would’ve quit.

Do you have an encouraging story about when you’ve rested instead of quit? I really want to hear it.

Do the next right thing

Have you seen Frozen 2? If not, I need you to avert your eyes because I’m going to spoil it for you.

Chris bought it a few days ago and all five of us piled into the living room to watch. Cash turned all the lights off, (which I promptly turned right back on. I hate being in the dark!) because we were ready for a full on family movie night. 🎥 🍿

Packing up my office...

Packing up my office...
P.S. You get to come to a fancy, all inclusive glamping resort on the beach in Mexico at the end, and it’s included in the price, so...it’s like the best deal of all time.

If you’re thinking, “ok Heather, fine, you’re right, I do want to write a book and drink margaritas.” Shoot me a message and I’ll send you the info on camp.

Be brave. Tell your story (also, you’ll get to have a massage on the beach...win/win).
