A New Year or a New Season - Whichever you're celebrating, it's time for change.

This time year symbolizes change in the yearly cycle of our natural, and for many, in our spiritual lives.  The days start getting shorter after the Autumnal Equinox, signaling the end of
summertime frolicking and a time to get re-focused.  With less hours in the day our schedules get tighter and reassessing our priorities may be in order. 

What do you want to draw into your life now?  What changes do you want to make? 

Wayne Dyer (RIP) said you don't attract you want, you attract what you are.  That's the basic tenet of the law of attraction.  As this year comes to a close (or begins anew), let's pay attention to being the type of person we want to attract more of in to our lives. 

Here's my list:  Positive.  Strong.  Healthy.  Compassionate.  Driven. 

Whatever attributes you're looking for in other people you simply have to see more of in yourself.


with love,
Jill

Keep reading to find out about the diet I've kept secret for years.  Plus a new, simple butt kicking workout you can do anywhere.

I mentioned in a previous newsletter I was going to let you in on my little diet secret.  I have never talked about with my clients or students before because this protocol known as Intermittent Fasting is the antithesis of conventional diet wisdom.  The most commonly recommended healthy diets suggest eating 5 to 6 small, frequent meals a day where Intermittent Fasting diets call for one or 2 large meals and a long stretch of time without eating.

We used to think that fasting slowed down the metabolism while eating frequently kept the metabolism revved up since it was always digesting something and kept blood sugars level by never going too long without food.  Turns out intermittent fasts of 16 to 36 hours may do the same things and have extra benefits like increasing longevity and staving off age related diseases and improving insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular function and brain function.  Many studies have been done on animals with great success.  Research on humans is limited but the results so far are impressive.

Were humans made to fast?  Think about it.  It's only been a mere blip in our historical timeline that we've had constant food availability.  Most of our history until very recently had us enduring periods of feast and famine.  As a matter of fact, every third world nation still endures this.  I can't help but think that maybe our bodies were made to go without food for longer periods of time.  It's not like our ancestors could just say, "Hmmm, it's almost lunch time.  Somebody get that wildebeest to run by and fire up the bar-b."  I remember my grandmother saying she used to fast once a week for "health reasons."  She may have been onto something.  But you can decide for yourself. 

  Here's my latest blog on the topic on Huffington Post.  The most popular methods are described in the article and plenty of studies are linked if you want to geek out.

I'm a creature of Endurance. 

I'm not as big as I used to be.  Once upon a time I had more bulk.  Yes, I'm leaner and (not sure if I'm meaner).  Being leaner might mean I don't have as much power as I did when I could leg press 360 lbs.  But what I do have is endurance.  The ability to keep on keepin' on against a set load.  Here's how I train for it.
 

This is a super basic workout. All you need is a kettlebell or a weight you can swing. Just 3 moves will give you maximum burn! Give it a try and post your comments.
