Remember you can highlight to share any text in this post, give it a try!

After the flurry of activities and over indulgences of the holidays, we usually greet the new year with an abundance of motivation to make the new year the best ever.  However, so often, a few weeks into the new year, we lose that motivation, and give into old habits and behaviors that don’t lead us towards our “whys”.  This leads us to believe that we have to “start over”…

Today the “All the Stuff” gals Lisa Carpenter, Transformational Life and Nutrition Coach, along with Lisa Sharp, Empowerment Coach and Clutter Expert, and Jen Turrell, Financial Personal Trainer for Women, discuss this common behavior.  Lisa Carpenter offers the perspective that no one really starts over – you start from the place where you left off.  And losing the judgement is something that is imperative as it does not serve anyone to dwell on something that has passed.  Nor does it serve to bash yourself around in shame for overspending, overeating, or over-cluttering…  Instead, focus on your “whys”, and move towards them and how you want to feel.

So if things get out of control, and you start feeling less than stellar, you have to be willing to go through the “detox” symptoms, to get through it and feel better.  Lisa Sharp discusses how having a plan to deal with the eventual discomfort will really help get through the transition towards your self-care.

Listeners will also hear how having people around you with common goals helps keep you on track.  Jen Turrell shared how the circle she shares with Lisa Sharp and Lisa Carpenter help her keep her goals of simplicity front and center, and in so doing, found her holidays were quite peaceful and relaxed.

Lisa Sharp’s program The Blueprint Program is always open.  Jen Turrell’s program Money Matters Mastermind can be found at And be sure to check out Lisa Carpenter’s E.A.T.! Program.
