Very late getting this out but I’m still getting it done. We didn’t have a webinar for week 19 but they posted an interesting video about a study that was done showing what affects your body position can have on you. They took 2 groups of people, one holding a pose for 2 min making themselves smaller, hunched over, etc. The other group held their arms all the way up, reclined with their feet up, etc, showing power. Then these people went in for a job interview. All those who did the power poses were wanted for the job while those that did the poses to make themselves smaller were not wanted for the job. So I tried it when I was getting a little overwhelmed while at home with a lot to accomplish. It helped me calm down and boost my confidence that I could get everything done. What the study showed was the power poses increased the person’s testosterone and deceased cortisol, the stress hormone. Amazing how God has made our bodies! Then when we were on our group call, I recalled a couple pictures my husband had taken on our date night just before I listened to the webinar. No words needed to tell who was victorious with each game.
So I have a little catching up to do with the mkmma work, but others are noticing my increased confidence and drive to work. I’m eager to make my calls and getting to it right away each day. I had our first salad in a jar party Sunday and it was great and I’m excited to keep them going weekly and growing community encouragement for better health. 🙂
Yay! I’m so exited! The work is paying off. I have been making more good habits with my business and I feel like there are good connections just falling in my lap. An old distributor, who can really sell when she sets her mind to it, connected me with a friend who wanted a smoothie protein for making smoothies to sell at the golf club she works at for after Pilates and tennis. So I went for the trial run to give samples and it was a big hit with the ladies there that day! Two ladies were already customers so they were raving fans which really encouraged the others to want to be customers. The lady working for the club was very pleased and signed up as a distributor and already found someone else to sell. Then the Pilates instructor wants me to set up a display at her studio of the products and do a health presentation for her clients. We have an appointment for next week to talk more. This is motivating of course for my old distributor to get back in the game. I pray this is only the beginning of even greater things, to really get the word out to get more plant food in more people and improve health!
I’m still thinking about giving myself permission to be happy and use the power in me. I’m also still noticing kindness. Someone, I guess the baby sitter or a lady from my mom’s group, left a Valentine in my diaper bag. It made me feel special and want to do that for others. I’m thinking about taking the girls to the nursing home I have worked at some to pass valentines out. My girls being so little and cute are good at making people smile. More work on me to do still but how much fun it is seeing some progression. I have great potential and there is no limit to what we can accomplish with the right mindset!
