The Woman We Love To Hate And How to Be One Of Them
You know the ones -
And to top it off, they usually have great jobs.
How do they do it?
I grew up in middle class neighborhoods, but we were really at the lower end of middle class. The other kids had nice houses, good food, moms that were moms ... and it all seemed like such a dream life to me. I wanted to live like that too.
I thought it was all about money.
I was wrong - Its a state of mind.
I found that there is no reason why you and I can't have the same richness of life. Its just how you think about it.
Maybe we can't afford expensive furnishings, but we can keep the things we have clean, and the wood polished and shiny. We can live like we have some class.
Maybe we can't afford grass fed beef and organic everything, but we can put fresh healthy meals on the table fast that will cost us less than eating out, and keep us thin, healthy and full of energy.
The one difference between those women and you is -
"I don't feel like it."
Of course you don't. Neither do I much of the time. It comes down to a choice.
The key to success in life is to do what needs to be done - whether you feel like it or not.
I'm not saying we have to be perfect. That is unattainable and you will just drive yourself crazy. Just go to bed knowing that you did the best you could that day. Your life will feel so much better.

Once I got good at feeding us fresh real foods, my daughter stopped getting sick. As a side benefit – we've stayed thin. I was a size 10 when I got serious. I am now a size 2, and have been for years. My daughter went to live at her dad's for a while and put on a bunch of weight. She's been back home for less than a year and has lost most of the weight - without dieting. Try some of these delicious recipes for yourself!
