Are You Living Out Your Calling?

I'm curious... When it comes to your work, in what way do you feel or think about it?  Is it a job for you that is a necessity like eating and sleeping?  Is it a career that is a stepping stone for you to another job?  Or is it your calling?  Your work is one of the most important things in your life to you and you are making the world a better place.

Many of us would like to be in the third category, but are stuck in the first or second one.  I know I was.  As a nurse, I knew I loved helping people.  I thought nursing was my calling.  Over time, I realized it was a stepping stone into my calling.  I do not regret becoming a nurse.  In fact, it has molded me into the person I am today.  What it has taught me most is how to empathize with others and self discipline.  If you are a nurse reading this, you know the discipline it takes to get through school, become a nurse, and put patients and their family first.  It's hard work!  Hard work, but very rewarding work.  

So how did I get to my calling?  Well I simply followed what I was most passionate about and that was health and fitness.  I actually wake up excited each day to workout and to challenge myself and take things to the next level with my fitness.  I love how strong I feel and how much more confident I am now in my skin.  I love the way I feel when I am fueling my body with clean foods.  I knew I wanted others to experience that very same feeling.

So I decided to become a Certified Personal Trainer and Online Heath and Fitness Coach.  Since then I have been able to help countless people get started on their healthy living journey.  I have also helped many women take things to the next level with their fitness and step on stage to compete in bikini competitions like myself!

Here's the deal guys.. if you are stuck in category one or two, I would love to help you live out your passion.  If you are a fit pro or enthusiast, healthcare professional, mom, wife, or just simply someone who is passionate about helping others and wants to better their own health, I would like to invite you to a special opportunity webinar tomorrow, April 26th at 830 PM EST.  I will share with you my full story of how I was able to replace my nursing job by following my passion and the in's and out's of what exactly a health and fitness coach does, common questions and start up cost.  There is no pressure to join.  This is just a chance for you to learn more and see if it is a good fit for you!

Post-Op and Recovery Update

Tomorrow will be one month since the removal of the GIST (Gastro-intestinal stromal tumor) in the lining of my stomach.  Quite a few people have been reaching out to see how I've been feeling and for an update on what's next. First off, the surgery went well.  My surgeon only had to make one incision in the mid-line of my abdomen, because as he started to cut, the tumor was visible immediately.  He said I was a "surgeons dream" since there wasn't much to cut through!  My pain was controlled well post-op and I did not have near as much nausea from the pain meds as I did from the lung biopsy.  They made sure to stay on top of giving me anti-nausea meds and even put a scopolamine patch behind my ear pre-op.  I stayed in the hospital for two nights and then was able to go home.  Recovery went well with no complications.  Over the last month, I've had a lot of emotional ups and downs.  Waiting on the results from the pathology on the tumor was difficult.  O

Surgery Update

If you read my last blog post, I left off with that I was home from my lung biopsy recovering and that the preliminary results showed up as "Organizing Pneumonia".  They did confirm that on the pathology, so my lungs are cancer free!  Praise God! I met with my Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Jeffery  Hardacre which let me tell you is one amazing man.  Not only does he seem highly qualified to care for me, but he has an incredible bedside manner.  He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I and answered all of our crazy questions.  I feel very confident in his hands and he seems to be very optimistic about things.   I am scheduled to go into surgery with him tomorrow for the removal of the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  If you haven't heard of this type of tumor, it's not your typical "stomach cancer".  Stomach cancer actually grows inside your stomach and could be a lot worse than a GIST.  This tumor is in the "wall/lining" of

Make Every Day Count

I woke up Tuesday June 18th of this year not feeling right.     Every time I stood up I felt light headed and nauseous. I thought to myself, “here comes baby number 3” and laid back down in bed.     If you know me well, then you know I sent my husband to the store to get a pregnancy test.     I am always taking those things with the slightest inkling that I might be pregnant.     When I saw the test was negative I was surprised.     As the day went on I became more light headed, and my heart was racing just walking from room to room.     This was so far from my norm, so I decided to go to the emergency room.     The doctors ran a few different tests and found that my hemoglobin level was 8.1.    For those of you who don’t know what hemoglobin is - it is the oxygen carrying component of red blood cells. The normal range for a female is 12-15.    This explained my symptoms, but we weren’t sure of the exact cause.    You also don’t normally get a blood transfusion until your leve
