I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been feeling the need for some inspiration and self-renewal. We set our new year’s resolutions back in January and now we’re at the mid-year point. While I’ve come a long way in meeting many of my personal goals, lately I’ve been feeling a bit drained and worn out. I’ve been working very hard. I’m exhausted and wondering if this is all worth it.

It doesn’t matter whether you are starting a business, writing a novel, trying to lose 50 pounds, or just working hard to raise the very best children you can. We all need some renewal now and again.

I’m not talking about a massage or a piece of chocolate. I’m talking about real inspiration. This isn’t just motivation — something that makes you work harder, driven out of fear and stress. This is true inspiration — the feeling of passion and excitement you get from the clear vision of where you are headed in the future. It’s only when you feel excited and really inspired that you can make positive changes in your life.

And sometimes, for me, as a woman, hearing another woman say something that inspires me means that much more. I love men, and I learn a lot from them, but hearing an inspirational, uplifting message from another woman makes it somehow easier to relate to — at least for me.

Renew You 2010

A few weeks ago I got a call from Andrea Ramirez, a WAPF nutritionist and holistic health coach. Andrea told me about a package she had put together called Renew You 2010. She found 16 women from various fields and interviewed them on the internet. Everyone from celebrity fitness trainer, JJ Virgin to Connie Bennett, author of Sugar Shock.

I’m very excited to tune in this weekend. I’ve written before about how I love podcasts and mp3 recordings of books. They really help me escape and recharge. I can’t wait to listen to the interviews on weight loss and exercise, the one on “hot sexy hormones,” and the ones on money and finance. Oh, and the one on “Defining Your Personal Style from the Inside Out” — that sounds like so much fun!

These recorded interviews will be streaming live this weekend from June 23th at 9pm until June 28th at Midnight, EST.

Here’s the full list:

* Karly Randolph Pitman: The Self-Care Pathway: Four Practices to End Emotional and Overeating
* JJ Virgin: Five Insider Secrets to Boost Your Energy, Shrink Your Waistline and Feel Your Best
* Brenda Kinsel: Defining Your Personal Style from the Inside Out
* Christine Arylo: Dare to be loved: Get the Love You Want by Loving Yourself First
* Connie Bennett: Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction with the Author of Sugar Shock!

* Karen Russo: Discover a New Money Reality: The Love Path to Abundance

Thanks for sharing this…I hope to get to listen to a few over the next couple days!

Ann Marie:
I just listened to your podcast with Jimmy Moore, it was great!
Hope we get to meet one day, perhaps at the raw co op in Venice.

Holistic health coach – I love that! I think that’s the “title” I’ve been searching for, this is wat I’d like to do – how do you get there? What is the course study?


Denise June 23, 2010 at 3:17 PM

I’m currently taking a RHN course, and I love it!! I already have my Red Seal Chef Certification, and my thoughts of combining these two skills to teach people how to cook healthy meals will make the world less sick. Healing the body from the inside out. Can’t wait to listen to the podcast!!
Eat yourself Well!!!


AnnMarie Deis June 23, 2010 at 4:12 PM

You have NO idea how much I needed this post today! It comes right at the exact moment that I, too, have lost my steam and feel burnt out. I have been feeling that I need some R&R time, to regroup so I can raise the best three-year-old (and person!) possible, to give cooking and meal preparation my best effort, and to “walk the talk.”

Thank you for such a thoughtful post, and I look forward to checking this out! :)


Kate L June 23, 2010 at 4:34 PM

I have been a client of Andrea during the years 2008 and 2009. Andrea “walks the walk” of lifestyle that she teaches us. She is a tangible example of what making the changes in your lifestyle and diet can do for you. Andrea glows with vibrant health and fabulous energy.

I noticed on Rose Cole has a website with some recipe’s. One of them is candy that uses agave nectar. She should probably remove this recipe or substitute a healthy alternative sweetener as most nutritionists now know that agave nectar is not healthy. Check out Westin Price Foundation or Dr Mercola websites for more information.

Kate – Thanks for that testimonial! I, too, think Andrea is great — full of positive energy and truly focused on helping others.

AnnMarie –

I guess we AnnMaries are on the same wavelength! :-)

I just spent an hour lying in the sunshine — I needed a break!


cheeseslave June 23, 2010 at 5:55 PM

Deb –

Thank you, that is so sweet. Are you a member of our local WAPF group? If so, hopefully you will come to a meeting sometime. If not, here is where you join:

Hope to meet you soon, too!


Andrea/True Nourishment June 24, 2010 at 6:59 PM

@AnnMarie: Thank you for the fabulous blog post about Renew You! Lots of your readers have been hanging out over there :-).

@Denise: I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I’d be happy to share more about my experience there, anytime.

@Kate L: You are a sweetheart :-)… and one of my favorite clients ever! But, you know that, don’t you?

@Carol: None of the Renew You experts are 100% into the WAPF principles — other than me, that is. BUT it’s good to learn from everyone, especially when it comes to diet. Bottom line is we’re all different and so we need to eat differently. Even though I don’t identify completely with Rose in her approach, I did learn a lot from this interview. She’s a great counselor!

How cool! I hope this happens again!
