Favorite Exercise

I have been. obsessed. with Erin Stutland’s Shrink Sessions since Bex brought Erin into my sphere of consciousness several weeks ago.  Shrink Sessions was a bit on the pricey side for me at $99.  Then, last week she did the Say It, Sweat It, Get It Challenge.  The challenge was aMAZing.  Plus, she created a Facebook group for us Challengers, and connecting with those lovely members was also aMAZing.


At the end of the challenge, she made an offer I couldn’t refuse.  She offered 4 45 minute Shrink Sessions. plus 3 20 minute Shrink Sessions coming to a platform near me soon. plus continued access to the 4 5 minute Shrink Sessions we did on the Challenge.


I couldn’t resist.  While, at heart, I am relatively. okay majorly. frugal, I’m trying to find ways to embrace things into my life that nourish me and discard those things that don’t.  And Erin nourishes me.  So I blew my birthday money all in one place, but I couldn’t be happier about the purchase.

Favorite Issue to Work On

Being Grateful.  I am doing the daily Trisha Sutter twitter #favepartofday gratitude contribution. I’m still feeling a little bombarded and needy.  Contributing to this are all the sales that crowd my email.  The sales are awesome, but all this materialistic temptation is causing me angst that my financial situation does not allow me to buy whatever. whenever.  I remind myself that I have everything that I need.  This means I need a gratitude attitude adjustment.  And the best way to accomplish this is a Gratitude List.
