The Year of No Nonsense – What Everyone is Saying

Here’s some of the amazing commitments we have received in just the first day!  Keep them coming!
  • Be authentic, joyful, and bold
  • I need to let stuff go….almost on a daily basis. I cannot right all the wrongs.
  • Do the things that make me happy- and don’t feel guilty about it!  Everyone is happier when mom is.
  • After working hard with both therapists and my individual self for many years, I am ready to let go of all my ‘nonsense’ anxiety which is not helpful, and limits me from being my best self.  Let it go!
  • I want to stop going for my fitness, career, and family goals half-assed. I want to get rid of all of the clutter that is holding me back and simplify to just the things that make me the best wife, mom, athlete, and teacher I can be.
  • Live lightly, breathe deeply. Prepare for [my big race] with no regrets. Achieve healthy weight.
  • Choosing not to drink alcohol, starting now. That will be enough, and I’m excited to see where that leads.
  • I’m not going to beat myself up about my weight or missed workouts!

  • Face my life with courage, curiosity, and kindness.
  • To think more positive about myself and my size, I am beautiful inside and out.

  • Be grateful. Every day.
  • I had already decided now was the time to do all of the things I always said I would do, but had yet to make happen.  This pledge showed up this morning on my birthday and I said “Hell Yea”!
