39th Birthday Lesson & Adventure

On my birthday last year, I wrote “38 Lessons on my 38th Birthday.”

So I thought that for my 39th birthday, it would be fitting to add my 39th Lesson.  :)

So, here it is…. I hope it encourages you.

Lesson #39:  BE FLEXIBLE!!! 

I confess that sometimes, I’m the Queen of IN-flexibility!  I want things done a certain way, or I plan my day and expect it to go just as I planned.

“Well, Honey…” (as Robert said when things didn’t go as planned on my birthday), “sometimes we just have to be FLEXIBLE.”

Life doesn’t always go the way we plan.  (Actually, it usually doesn’t go according to plan – wouldn’t you agree?)

Yesterday, I wanted to go on a mountain bike ride near Lake Dillon, CO… then go shopping in Silverthorne, followed by a good sit-down meal at a really nice restaurant.

Instead, we were stuck in dead-stop traffic for two hours!  We got off at a much earlier exit since it was clear we weren’t getting anywhere.  And we tried to find a trail near Georgetown.

As we got ready to ride, I realized I forgot my shoes.

So, this is what I was forced to ride in – or there would have been no ride…. (yup, pretty ghetto – socks and sandals – and we had to cross over that river behind me, which was overflowed on the trail!!!)

After we got done with our ride, it was so late that there was no time to do any shopping in Silverthorne.  Not only that, there were no nice restaurants where we were.  So…. we had pizza as the birthday dinner!

At least I got a free dessert.  😉

Alas, my 39th lession is learn to be flexible.

You’ll be a lot happier in your life if you go with the flow….versus stamp your feet and scream, “I want it MY way!”

(I mean….I still do this on the inside but at least I’ve gotten better about not throwing tantrums).

Hope you have a flexible day!

Committed to your success,

The Easiest, Most Nutritious Meal EVER

I’m really into smoothies.  Like, REALLY into them.


Because they’re amazing.  You can throw a gazillion ingredients into a blender and WAM!

30 seconds and you have the most complete, nutritious, delicious meal, with very little clean up.

Who wouldn’t LOVE that???

And I mean you can toss just about anything into a blender:  Fruits, greens, every veggie imaginable, nuts, all varieties of milks, frozen stuff, oats… heck some day I’ll even try chicken.

Don’t be grossed out either.  If you don’t like smoothies it’s probably because you’ve made (or have been forced to drink) some bad ones.

Well, we’re about to fix THAT!

Very very soon, I’ll be inviting you to participate in my brand-new 7 Day “Love My Veggies” Smoothie Challenge – and can participate for FREE!

I’m on a mission.

I know we struggle so much with getting veggies, especially GREEN ones, into our diet.

Don’t believe me?  Ask yourself (and just about anyone else) how many green vegetables they consume every day.  I guarantee it’s not the recommended amount, which is 2 cups per day (that’s 14 cups a week).

And that’s just greens.  What about the other fruits and vegetables you WE should be consuming?

Hey, I did say WE… I confess that I don’t even come close to that on most days.

So, that’s why we’re doing this “Love My Veggies” Smoothie Challenge – together!

I’m going to send you a DELICIOUS smoothie recipe every single day for 1 week – and your goal is to make it! :)

You’ll find that you’ll:

  • Rid your body of toxins
  • Lose weight
  • Have increased energy
  • And feel AMAZING!!!

So, why not join me?  We’ll be starting a little later this month but I’m so excited about it, that I just couldn’t keep it to myself anymore.  :)

Why only Seven Days?

This short challenge is going to be a test-drive.  To get your feet wet.  :)  If you love it and stick with it, then you’ll be invited to participate a 21 Day (still free) Challenge in order to see even more results!

In the meantime, here is a super yummy recipe to give you a taste of what’s to come!

Basic Green Smoothie


  • 1 C of almond milk
  • 2 scoops of high quality protein powder.  I recommend Usana’s Nutrimeal Free
  • 1-2 handfuls of spinach or kale
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 C of one of these frozen fruit:  apples, oranges, pears, pineapple
  • Raw honey to sweeten
  • Optional superfood booster: flax, chia seeds, or hemp seeds


  1. Fill the blender with greens, add liquid.
  2. Add protein power or Nutrimeal, frozen fruit, bananas, any optional ingredients, and blend until smooth.
  3. If it is too chunky and not blending well, add water.

Let me know how you like it, k?

Until the sign-up for the free Challenge is up and running, I’ll be sending you more recipes and tips to help you have your healthiest summer ever!  :)

Committed to your success,
