Life Change Club

Change is hard.  We want to pretend we can do it easily…. but we can’t.

I know.  I will do some true confessions with you if you keep reading.

Your safe place for change is HERE.

The Life Change Club community is NOW gathering.

Finding each other, raising your hand, asking for help!

A Transformation Revolution.  Using my Life Change System.

Wait till you see what I’ve included.

Refine. Adapt. Evolve. Revise. Adjust. Alter.

What do I know about CHANGE?

These past 12 months, I have walked through more than my fair share. I have learned that no matter if the change is labeled “GOOD” or “BAD,” it takes a lot longer than we want it to for us to adapt.  And we are the ones that think we have to label things…… most things just ARE.  We might need to put away our LABEL MAKER gadget and just accept life.  In my experience, the things that I once thought were “BAD” have often turned into the biggest miracles and blessings later.

In the past 12 months…

  • I got engaged on December 3, 2016 and married on July 1, 2017.
  • I sold my association, the National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs, on April 28, 7 years after I created it from scratch.
  • I sold my house and moved to a new town.
  • I sold furniture that I had purchased 18 years before when I bought my very first home all by myself.
  • I adjusted to being a newlywed and a wife….. this is an ongoing process as this is a second marriage for both of us.
  • I let go of a title that I have let define me for for the past 7 years: President and Founder.
  • I did Whole 30 and a few other food plans in a quest to lose weight for my wedding and for the sake of the clothes in my closet.
  • I stopped a 25-year daily trip to Starbucks.
  • I stopped a lot of my workaholism and learned to BE in new ways.

The TRUTH is…. CHANGE of any sort is much harder than we want to admit. I surround myself with support. I have learned tricks and tools and techniques to keep me “on track.”

My goal is to help you to CHANGE… whatever it is you want to work on!  

Thus… I created the Life Change Club.

The Life Change Club. Here’s What’s Going to Happen:

Inner Healing and Transformation

By exploring your own heart and soul, your own mental patterns and daily behaviors.

Safe Coaching Community for Your Process

Groups have saved my life.  You learn by “hearing” and this is no different… we will learn together and love each other through.

Creative Ideas and Suggestions

Often, we just need a fresh perspective. Innovative thinking. And suggestions for you… take what works and leave the rest.

Remodel. Shift. Modify. Turn. Unfold. Expand.

It’s up to you.  We are here to help you.  I am here.

How do I know this? Let me count the ways…

I have my Masters in Counseling.  I have coached hundreds of women (and a few brave men).

But let’s talk about the real stuff…..the scary stuff…..Let me tell you about my CHANGE RESUME.

My Change Resume (Behaviors I have changed over the years…)

Weight and Food.  203 pounds.  Let’s talk about weight.  My first addiction was food.  It was the substance that was always available to me while growing up.  Later in my life, I turned to smoking and alcohol and shopping and workaholism.  But first was FOOD.  I have been anorexic and I have been 203 pounds at my highest.   Food has been safe place and my torture.  It is how we “coped” and “celebrated” and did anything and everything in my family.   This past few months I have been using a new format to help me let go of 5 lbs or so.  I am 10 lbs less than I was a year ago at this time.  The number is small but the victory is real.  

Smoking.  I started in college.  I smoked for 5 years.  Menthol.  At least 10 a day, which is half a pack for those that do not know.  On drinking days it was way way more.  And then when I decided to train for my first marathon, I decided I might need to stop.  So then I began to switch to the Nicorette gum.  I weened myself off.  I had a cigarette in the morning and then let myself have one at night.  In between, it was the gum.  That seemed to work.  I can’t remember how long I did that but eventually I was done with the smokes and just addicted to the gum.  And then I had to ween myself OFF of the gum.  I allowed myself to have as many pieces of regular gum as I needed.  And guess what…..I still chew a lot of peppermint gum. 

Drinking Alcohol.  Many of you know that I am in recovery now.  4 and a half years now. My last drink was on June 18th of 2013 in Palm Springs California.  Watch that video here for the story. But it was a liter of Tequila, not just a drink.  I don’t remember my first drink, some alcoholics do but not me.  I drank within reason during my college years.  I would get “out of hand” on occasion and then reel myself in, or as I liked to say… “put myself on restriction”.  It continued on that way during grad school to get my Masters in Counseling. Then it kept going during my 5 years of working at a hospital in the Chemical Dependency Unit and Employee Assistance Program (E.A.P.).  But when I finally got honest and looked back on my drinking career, I realized that I had been drinking daily for 14 or 15 years.  A glass of wine, or a margarita, or a hard apple cider. Daily. And the quantity got worse after my divorce in 2011. It was just me. No one to see me most nights, unless I was meeting girlfriends to drink with me. This stopped when I hit bottom.  Some addictions you can choose to taper and some you can’t. For me, I choose to live in recovery, one day at a time and NOT drink. Tapering did not work for me. I tried all sorts of tricks and schemes.  So, I changed this.  I got help.  I attend my 12 step meetings, work with a sponsor, sponsor other women, and have found a life that I could not have dreamed of.  But I had to change my behaviors and learn new ways of coping with anxiety, fear, stress, and happiness too.

Exercise.  We all know that exercise is good for us.  But I know deep down.  Exercise has helped me be relieved of excess weight and also relieved my depression.  It helps me to drive out my inner crazy.  So this is a habit that I have added and part of my tools in my toolbelt.  I have completed 4 full marathons and a multitude of half-marathons.  But on most days, I am just walking my 2.3 mile loop.  My body and my mind like to move.  It helps my chronic back pain.  You might need to add exercise as a part of your Life Change Action Plan.

Coffee and my Daily Pilgrimage to Starbucks.  For 25 years, I drove to Starbucks every day.   I know you think I am kidding but I have done the math (and I don’t really do MATH).  I lived in Spokane, WA for college.  We had a Starbucks down the hill from my college.  I am 45 years old.  I am rather sure I started driving there daily when I was 20 years old since I had a car on campus that year.  That is 25 years of Iced Americano’s with cream and sweet and low.  This year I stopped going.  It was partly related to Whole 30 and partly related to moving and getting married.  My insides changed.  It doesn’t taste good to me like it used to.  I am still shocked by this.  I don’t even drink coffee in my coffee pot every morning now.  I now drink tea, all sorts of tea.  Change. 

Choose. Decide. Accept. Commit. Learn. Grow. Start Again.

You get the point.  Change.  Life.   I “get it” as a former counselor.  I “get it” as a woman who struggles with all sorts of addictive behaviors.

Last year, I got my Life Recovery Coach certification to add onto my Masters in Counseling and all of my other trainings.  I am currently taking a grad school class in Addiction Counseling.  I go to 4 or 5 Twelve Step Meetings a week. So I not only KNOW this information, I LIVE this lifestyle.  I can speak your language.

Let’s get started.  This is the group to help you.

This is your journey.  I can’t wait to go with you!

Transformation. One choice at a time.

Join us, join me.

Start Now… no need to wait.  

60 days.  

Enough time for you to get situated, adapt and settle in to a new HABIT!
