The #7daymiracleproject is a 7 day challenge that asks you to commit to 4 things a day, for 7 days. These four things build a personal platform that allows for amazing things to happen in our lives. They include healthy nutrition, exercise, kind acts, and personal focus on each of the 7 life miracles (embrace, connect, create, empower, choose, climb and inspire).

Here is my first day of the #7daymiracleproject.
NUTRITION: I started with a trip to Whole Foods. I’ve been on the road a bit lately and my kitchen was lacking fresh fruits and vegetables (and much more, for that matter). Walking through Whole Foods is a little bit like a kid in a candy store. I love stopping to read about all of their products, how they are sourced, what their story is, etc. From the many grocery shopping trip tours I’ve taken clients on, I know that all we really ‘need’ exists along the parameter of the store, but I will sometime venture through the aisles, just to see what new products are on the shelves. As I walked up to the checkout counter, I felt… HAPPY. It feels good to make decisions that I know are good for me and that I am going to enjoy. I loved everything in my cart. I wanted to go home and start cooking right away.
FITNESS: I teach plenty of classes throughout the week, but I’ve decided I need to have 30 minutes a day just for me. So, today I practiced arm balances (with the help of my dogs). These are yoga poses that require balance and sometimes can look pretty darn cool. I love picking a few to play with and spend 5 minutes working on each. Tonight I practiced handstands, handstand scorpions and forearm stands. Lots of fun. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
KIND ACT: I decided to buy 7 cards that inspired me and send one to someone each day. For this section, I don’t want to share what I did at great length, because I do not want the praise of the kind act – I want to have done it without expectation of anything in return. I will just mention I look forward to writing letters to each person I am giving a card to this week – and what ever other kind acts I find! The person I performed a kind act for texted me tonight to tell me how much it meant to her. Yay!
PERSONAL MIRACLE #1 – EMBRACE– This miracle is about living with intention and not putting something off. I signed up to take an aero silk class that I’ve been thinking about for a while. Exciting! Feels good.
What an awesome day. I can’t wait for tomorrow. #7daymiracleproject
