Never forget to breathe.

Life can be overwhelming at times, we all know.  Situations and people come at you from every which way, not necessarily contributing anything positive. Things happen that we have no control over.  We get busy, wrapped up in a daily routine, too busy to recognize what we are doing or not doing at all.

One too many times over the last few months, I did not follow that simple rule – to breathe.  Faced with obstacles and challenges that became stressful and overwhelming, I often let them get the best of me. My mind began racing, I would begin to think negative thoughts like “why me?” and “I can’t do this.” I would find myself focusing on the negative only.

What did I forget to do?  Breathe.

I knew better. And with a sister as a Yoga Instructor, you might be thinking – how the heck did she forget to breathe?  Easy. Believe it or not, once in a while, we all do it.

Along with forgetting to breathe, I also forgot to remember that just as God had given me the strength to make it through those past trials and tribulations, that if I once again simply put my trust in him, he would do the same thing again. Instead, I chose to worry.

 

Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? – Matthews 6:27

 

 

 

The answer is simply no.  What I have found is that when you forget to breathe, you forget the other things that are important to you as well.  Prime example, this is my first blog post in how many months? Exactly.

Let’s talk about breathing exercises. To be honest, there are so many and it can be as simple as one long deep breath in and out that can bring your focus back and relax your body.  Check out this neat article I found that describes 6 simple breathing exercises that can help you to relax in 10 minutes or less. Of course, I also recommend that you don’t only practice these exercises when you feel stressed, but regularly so that when unexpected moments do come about, they don’t hit you so hard. Don’t know if you are doing it right? Take a trip to youtube – there are tons of breathing exercise videos to help walk you through it.

And I can’t forget to suggest you add in some type of daily meditation (which of course includes breathing) and a yoga class or two to keep your energy focused and relaxed daily.

Feeling overwhelmed today? Take a deep breath in and just WOOSAH.

“Transformation doesn’t happen overnight…” –Jillian Michaels

 

 

PhotoGrid_1468764911544

Week 2 Vs. Week 4

There is something special about a workout that you know actually works if and when you put in “work.” A workout that not only gives you energy, but one that makes your stronger; both physically and mentally. We all have our own strengths, likes, and dislikes when it comes to working out.  And I am sure we have all found out what “works” for us.

Many of us think we have to have a gym membership to get into shape.  Truth is, you don’t.  All you need is a dedicated space at home with enough room to do some jumping jacks or lay down a yoga mat, a few hand weights and you are good to go. I’d like to share with you one of my favorite “at home” work out video programs that I pretty much guarantee will help you reap results.

My all-time favorite workout video is the Ripped in 30 by Jillian Michaels.  (And NO she is not paying me to say all of the following amazing things about her video—it just works!)  In fact, I just finished her 4-week program for the second time in my life.  The first time was a few years back and I remember the awesome results that I received so I decided to give it a go again.  Well, did it work?  With a lot of discipline and prayer — Heck yes, it did! And did I mention, it’s less than $10?!

I feel great. I look even better. Now forgive me because I am TERRIBLE at taking before and after pictures, so I only remembered to take one during week 2 and then at the end of week 4. But please believe me when I say, a few lbs. are gone, muscles were gained, a few inches were lost, and overall my body was toned tremendously over the 4 weeks.  So much so that I have decided to do it again making it an 8-week program for myself — And this time I will take pics to share :).

 

jillianonshape

Shape Magazine July/August 2016

The DVD is made up of 4 workouts – Week 1, 2, 3, and 4.  Each week she recommends you do the workout 5-6 times (with at least one day of rest).  I choose to do it 5 days with two days of rest.  She also provides a 30-day meal plan for you to follow (I did not follow it either time, but of course I still try to monitor what I eat throughout to make healthier choices – I did eat some ice cream, haha.) – If you are a beginner at becoming more active, I would actually say it might be okay to do the video 3-4 times a week to get started bc. you will be very sore! What I love about the video is that there is an advanced and moderated version – & trust me, I was doing a lot of moderation during the 4 weeks.  Also, you are able to use weights of your choice with the workouts. Don’t worry, Jillian will give you the breakdown before you start the program!

If you listen to Jillian, you will have to put in “work” to reap results. She is tough and a no non-sense type of woman, which I love because she pushes me to finish strong.  Trust me at first, it isn’t easy, but overtime you become stronger and are able to complete the moves.  It’s encouraging to see that although it still hurts, it doesn’t hurt “as bad” as you continue.  She will whip you into shape in just about 25 minutes a day and like the video says, she will make sure you get ripped.

I don’t know about you, but I’m letting Jillian be my personal trainer for the next 4 weeks.  Do you have a video that you’ve seen results from that’s easy to do at home, so there is no excuse of not being able to make it to the gym?  Pull it out! Do it! And reap the results.  In the works of JM— “If 300, 400, 500 lb. people can do this, then so can you. Give me all that you’ve got!”

Got to love her.  But more importantly, you’ve got to put in “work” and love yourself.

The Fight of Starting Over

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.Philippians 3:11-14

It’s not easy starting over. It can be a scary thing.

Usually starting over means something else has ended, or having to accept that something might have failed or didn’t go quite as planned.

Maybe you have been on the right track with healthy eating habits and began seeing progress from workouts at the gym.  You then decide to have a cheat day, which turned into a cheat week, and then you found yourself back in your old, not so healthy routine and no longer in the gym. I can relate. What now? Continue down the path of unhealthy living? Give up? No. You start again and press toward your goals. You fight.

Or you could be in a not so good friendship or relationship?  Things have changed or maybe things have not changed, and that’s the problem.  What now? Give up? No, but in this situation, starting over could mean two different things.  It’s very possible the relationship is worth saving, so then you fight for it, you work for it, you start over by doing what you need to do in the situation to make it survive. If that is not the case, then maybe it’s time to recognize that it may be the best decision to let it go and start over for yourself without that person. Here, you are fighting for yourself.

On the other hand, starting over can be exciting and worthwhile.

boxing4newFor instance I’ve been on vacation for almost two weeks now– training myself mentally because next week, I start a new job.  In a way, I am starting over.  This new round was unexpected as I am with a new company, a new boss, new co-workers, and will begin working with new people on new, community impacting projects and facing new challenges.  I have fought very hard to get here, nothing has ever been handed to me, and this is a new chapter in my life that I am ready to completely embrace. You see, it’s all very new and a little scary, but I am ready to come out swinging.

Also, earlier this week, a good friend of mine, Vanessa, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy –Tyson Maxwell.  She already has a seven year old daughter, but in many ways she and her husband are very much so starting over. Her pregnancy was not the easiest at first — BUT, she is a fighter; and there will be a lot of “firsts” this time around, but still I have no doubt that God will continue to cover her family as they embrace this new blessing and that they will be able to train him in the way that he should go. I have no doubt he will be a fighter, too.

Listen — life can be overwhelming, we may get knocked down and things happen; both good and bad. What you can’t forget is that starting again can be viewed as a good thing. Know that you often have to fail many times before you succeed, a million people will tell you no before they say yes, and you will certainly have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run.

What can you do to help with the fight of starting over?  Don’t just start from scratch.  Instead, I’d suggest taking the following steps first:

  1. Take a look at what you can learn from the past, but don’t dwell on it. –What worked? What didn’t work?
  2. Think about when and where the change occurred (whether good or bad) and get focused on the change you are looking for in the situation overall.
  3. Now, consider what steps can you take to avoid past mistakes? How can you give it your best this time around? How can you fight?

Truth is, many times, we don’t know what to do and where to start. Let alone, how to start again.  I understand.  We get put in situations and don’t know why, so we don’t know how to react. I pray. A lot.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.Romans 8:26

Remember one thing, we are fighters.  It won’t be easy, but in the end, it will all pay off. In honor of the late and great, Muhammad Ali…“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

And so in this very moment, I pray that you too will find the strength to fight and start over –whatever that means for you.

My Best Kept Secret

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Let me start off by saying, the decision starts with you.  Is that my secret?  Well, not exactly, so just keep reading to find out.

So many times I meet individuals who tell me that they want to change, but don’t know how. Even with me I sometimes find myself wanting something so bad, but I can’t seem to put one step in front of the other to get to where I want to go…

I bet there has always been a time where we find ourselves saying:

I want to go to the gym, but…

I want to eat right, but…

I want to start my own business, but…

It makes you start to hate the word, “but” all together.

As a health coach, it is extremely important for me to remember that the most I can personally do for my clients is to help them gain knowledge that they didn’t have before, support them and encourage them throughout their personal health journey. In other words, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him/her drink it.”  It’s hard to cope with this at times because I see that so many are so thirsty for change in their life.

Are you the friend who is always down to help out everyone else, but when it comes to putting in the hard work for yourself, you fall short?  Trust me, we’ve all been there. Truth is my best kept secret is no secret at all. In fact, I believe that it is mere common sense.

It’s that “we must take care of ourselves” annnndd like I said before, the decision starts with you. Self-care is one of the most important things we can do in our lifetime, yet so many ignore when they need rest, when they need to exert some energy through play or exercise, and even when they need to eat.  Many often ignore it when they need to be alone and away from the crowd as well as when they need to step out, be more adventurous, and surround themselves with family, friends or even new acquaintances.

It’s important that we take a bath once in a while, listen to the quiet (that’s right—cut off the TV and you’re phone for a day or two), as well as listen to your body after a meal. Take care of yourself.  I can talk for days about how paying attention to how you feel and treat yourself can affect your health overall and also your self-esteem, but I think we already know this.  I could then go on about how our overall health and self- esteem then begins to affect the way we treat and care for others.

So can I ask you a few questions?  No pressure.   When’s the last time you took a bath?  Not a quick shower just to make sure all the dirt was off.  A real bath; the kind with some lavender epsom salt, maybe some soft music playing and the lights down low?  Yes, that’s self-care.

When’s the last time you read a really good book about a topic you were actually interested in or passionate about? Not just floated through your news feed on social media, letting any and everything find a place in “your” mind; but instead learned something new and valuable to your well-being?

Ahhh, yes.  Do you get it now?  What does taking care of yourself mean to you? Believe it or not, eating right, exercising, and even doing something like starting your own business are all aspects of self-care.

Although I call it my best kept secret, I am pretty sure you already knew about it.

After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church– for we are members of his body. (Ephesians 5:29-30).

Thanks for reading. Take care of yourself.

Stir Up Something New: Your 2016 Transformation

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

 

HeadShotIt hasn’t even been a full week into 2016 and I already feel something new stirring up inside of me.  Is it the same for you? I feel myself changing, better yet, transforming.  How you may ask? Well, for me, I chose to take a little break from my social media accounts to focus on just that— stirring up something new.  Aside from my blogging, I have really said adios to other social media for a while to get more focused on this year and renew my mind and spirit.

Screenshot (1)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” – Roman 12:2

 

Let’s remember that transformation begins in the mind. If our mind is cluttered, it becomes extremely difficult to move forward and unfortunately my mind had been quite occupied; hence, my previous post how sometimes we need to clean up our acts. So, I decided to clean up a little myself through a little R&R (rest and relaxation).

Focusing on myself by reflecting each December, along with thinking about what I am really hoping for in the next year, has grown to be one of my favorite things to do at the end of each year.  If you don’t already do this, I highly recommend it.  Take a second and jot down the moments where you were tested and persevered or perhaps you failed, tried again, and were taught a very valuable lesson. Next, think about how these moments affected and molded you.  Now, what you can see yourself accomplishing in the coming future?

Each year, whether you like it or not, “we change.” Whether we are the driving force behind that change is up to us.  Whether that change is for good or bad, well many times, it’s up to us as well.  Since we know that we change, why not give ourselves a little more power behind it and work to “transform” ourselves for the better.  Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Make it a goal, stir up something new.

How would you like to see yourself transform this year?  Whether you are hoping to switch up your diet by trying a few new healthier foods or recipes that you have detested in the past, that’s a start.  Or could you try a new workout routine that had previously been too hard or you thought you just weren’t capable of at the time? Maybe you are looking to change careers and try something that feels right? Or most importantly, maybe you are lacking something spiritually and are looking to strengthen your relationship with the Holy Spirit. Let’s not be defeated mentally, but renew our minds and transform our bodies and spirits. 

Here are a few articles that may help you to stir up something new and move into this new year to kick-off your healthy 2016 transformation:

Think about it.  If we don’t take a moment to reflect on what we really want for ourselves or visualize it, we just get stuck in a routine that becomes comfortable and maybe not so great for us. But if we focus on moving forward toward the prize that God has for each of us (Philippians 3:14), take some time out to reflect and listen, along with exercising patience, then transformation will certainly occur over time.

It’s 2016. Cheers to a Happy New Year and Happy New You!

It’s Official

It’s Official

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

It’s official everyone. Mid-October I reached the portion of my certification program to begin seeing and coaching clients as a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (call me ‘healthcoachbri‘ 🙂 ). It’s been an interesting journey to say the least.  I am a little over 6 months into my program and my head is literally spinning from consuming so much information.

Not to mention I have not been 100% the last few months health wise, but no complaints here; all is well.

Throughout the program I have ultimately learned so much about myself and my overall health. We all have our own “health hiSTORY” and I have been able to recognize which areas of my health that I am strong and others that I have struggled with all of my life and still need help in as well. I have to remind myself…it’s the reason I started this blog in the first place.  If you need a reminder, check out my very first blog post depicting a young teen Bri weighing around 200 lbs.

I wanted to help people realize that change is possible, but it’s not easy. And I realize that to this point in my life, I have often fought change, clinging onto an unhealthy past.

As a health coach, I strive to work with people to live a healthy and whole life– which will include a lot of change. It takes time, but we focus on balancing physical health, nutrition, career, relationships and spirituality. It’s based on bio-individuality, so not one thing works for everyone.  I build relationships with my clients and get to know them.  Then I help guide them to make better decisions that result in a healthier and whole life.

How do I plan to do this? I am glad you asked…

Why not team up with someone close to me that has a very similar desire to help others, but expresses it in a different way?  My yogi sister, Ashley, of course! She is awesome at what she does; guiding people to a happier and healthier lifestyle through the practice of yoga– a true inspiration. Soon and very soon, we will be launching our bareSOUL yoga and wellness website (baresoulyoga.com) with more information about how you can get involved, so stay tuned!

Next month, I have a few more tricks up my sleeve that I hope to share with you all very soon as well. This is something that I have wanted for a while now and it’s time that I walk by faith and not in fear. Le’ go!!!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7

 

 

PSA:  Although I have decided that at this time I will not officially be taking on any additional clients until late December 2015, if you are interested in receiving information about a free consultation with me to see how I can be of help to you in making healthy changes in your life, email me at: healthcoachbri@baresoulyoga.com

Love you all,

Fuel Your Workout

Categories: Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

It’s Day 19 of my 100 Days to FIT for LIFE challenge and it’s time for me to share some of my fitness and nutrition essentials for before, during, and after my workout, or even throughout the entire day.IMG_20150815_185426

If you didn’t already know, what we do before our workout can make or break our potential success.  Let me share with you not only some foods that I make sure to keep handy pre workout as well as after my workout to ultimately make sure that I get the MOST out of my workout:

  1. I always make sure to fuel my body before a workout, unless I work out first thing in the morning and then I definitely make it a point to fuel myself properly afterwards.

 

Pre workout foods: wheat toast or English muffin with peanut butter and banana, parfait with Greek yogurt, fresh berries and granola, oatmeal and fresh fruit , trail mix (sometimes just pistachios or almonds), fruit/veggie smoothie with added protein of choice (usually plain or vanilla whey—check out some protein powder and clean pre workout available at ETBfit.com)

Post workout foods: grilled chicken and sautéed veggies, fish, sweet potatoes, tuna fish sandwich on wheat bread, salad with black beans, brown rice/quinoa with avocado, hummus and fresh veggies

Make sure to follow me on Instagram @googlebri or Tumblr @lifewithbri to see some of these food pics posted on my page periodically:

foodcollage

Here are a few more tips to help you reap the most benefits out of a good workout and keep you motivated:

  1. It’s extremely important to switch up workout routines ever so often so that not only does your body does not get used to it (and no longer reaps the benefits), but so that you do not become bored and lose motivation!
  2. Also, a good way to keep your workouts fresh, new and fun is to incorporate some great music.  What are your favorite songs? favorite artists? What gets you moving? I have found that it is different for everyone. Check out a few of my favorite tunes that just might interest you and get you moving– some of which are oldies, so don’t judge me! : )
  • Get Me Bodied by Beyonce (What’s a workout without at least one great Beyonce track?)
  • One Thing by Amerie (Ooh ohh OH)
  • Senorita by Justin Timberlake
  • Sugar by Maroon 5
  • Lean On by DJ Snake and Major Lazer
  1. As for additional supplements, I will be honest when saying it is extremely difficult for me to stay on track and remember to take them daily, but when I am able to, I definitely reap the benefits. Some supplements I try to take include a probiotic, b12 vitamin (or liquid drop), fish oil pill, regular daily vitamin and/or hair, skin and nails vitamin.

Now, let’s fuel our bodies. #100toFIT #100toLIFE

100 Days Fit for LIFE Challenge

Categories: BriGrams, Off the radar, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

fitforlife

 

If you know me, you know that I love a challenge.  More so recently I set out on the path with a group of friends to complete the 100 happy days challenge found here: www.100happydays.com

Unfortunately, I did not fully complete the challenge, but instead stopped on Day 30.  I honestly felt like I had accomplished what I needed to do—which was to find something in each day that made me happy.  I soon came to realize that I did not need such a challenge to find joy in everyday of my life.  With that said I give kudos to those who have completed all 100 days (including my friend Nichelle) because frankly I wish I had crossed that finish line.

After not completing those 100 days, I soon realized I wanted (more like needed) to challenge myself again. But this time, in a way that would mean a lot more to me and would ultimately help me reach my personal goals at the same time.

So here goes nothing! I have devised a 100 Days Fit for LIFE challenge!

The terms of the challenge include the following guidelines:

  • 100 days of at least 20 mins of physical activity/exercise each day
  • No physical activity/exercise on Sundays
  • Eat clean at least 75 % of time
  • Drink plenty of water (check out my H20 Battle: Drink Up post to see how much you should be drinking)
  • Keep personal journal and use hashtag #100toLIFE if want to track and share journey via social media

*Disclaimer: Do not over exert your body.  If you are concerned that you only have one day to rest each week..remember that the minimum is 20 minutes and that your physical activity can be a light or less strenuous exercise like yoga, pilates, or simple stretching. –just make sure that it is purpose driven and intentional! Also, if necessary, consult your doctor before beginning the challenge.

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.- Genesis 2:2

FYI – I have actually just completed DAY 6 of the challenge and of course Day 7 is my rest day (Sunday) – I needed to see if I could do it before I started challenging others. Also, I was supposed to have recorded my first vlog today and posted it below to show how things are going, BUT due to technical difficulties, I will have to wait to post it! Stay tuned!

For all of my subscribers, I apologize that this might seem last minute. Feel free to join in on this challenge anytime.  We could even be on DAY 30! Know that this challenge is not only for me, but for anyone who would really like to make daily physical activity a lifestyle change for them.

If you would like to make it official and join the 100 Days Fit for LIFE challenge, email me at talkwithbri@gmail.com with your name and social media account username (for Instagram and/or Twitter).  Also, feel free to just email if you have any questions!

Will you join me? Let’s get FIT!

Run Your Race

Run Your Race

Categories: Faith“Full”, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. – 1 Corinthians 9:24

I was inspired to write this post because I recently completed my first “official” marathon-type race since I previously ran track in high school and aside from the occasional run I do at the gym for cardio.

The race was far from pretty, but it was fun. It was 4 miles, raining and chilly outside and we were soaked.  Of course I, like many others tried to be prepared and buy a poncho, but about 1/3 into the race that bad boy had to come off! The race was supposed to be somewhat of a team building exercise for my staff as a whole, but of course everyone had their own pace andIMG_20150604_205255 we were all split up.  Some walked, some jogged, and many ran at a little faster pace.

The two young women I jogged/fast walked with were as nervous as I was, so our encouraging words as we wiped the dripping water from our faces and eyes seemed to help all of us keep going until we were crossing the finish line.

The cherry on top was that as we sped up to jolt across the finish line, they called out my name and organization. I didn’t need any recognition, but out of 5,000 + participants, it made me feel special that I was one of the names called as we all accomplished something so great and challenging together.

I wanted to share this scripture and my experience with my bloggers because the race got me thinking about everything else in life.  Often we know something is coming up in our lives and/or something happens and we are not prepared, BUT we still are given the choice to step on that starting line.  On the day of the race, I already knew I was not in my BEST shape and not to mention it was raining, so I’ll be honest, I considered bowing out gracefully.  Instead, I decided to “run my race.”

As we go through life’s trials and tribulations, we often want to stop and give up or maybe even find an easier way; just as in a race you may want to quit, take a short cut or catch a ride back instead. I was proud that instead, I chose to “run my race.”

Many times throughout the race, I looked at others around us (some were walking, jogging, running). Even once or twice, I compared myself saying “man, if they can do it, I can” or “I wish I had his/her form”.  Just as in life, we often compare ourselves to others and what they are accomplishing or doing through mediums such as social media—something I recently had to take a break from.  I cannot be so worried about others. I have to “run my race.”

Now, you’re almost to the finish line and you‘ve made it! With the help of God, you made it through whatever problem, issue, obstacle that you were facing and you became a winner.  Just think if we all went through life with this mentality?  No one’s race is going to be the same. It’s not meant to be that way. I don’t know about you, but I am going to own who I am and I am going to “run my race.” And I am going to get MY PRIZE.

Walk that Talk

Walk that Talk

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Is there something you’ve been saying you are going to do for a while now? Maybe it’s your finances holding you back or you think that maybe now is just not the right time? (This may very well be the situation)—BUT what if it’s just time for you to stop daydreaming and only thinking about what you want to do? Is it time to “walk that talk?”

Well, if you know me, you know I love Health and Wellness.  Like everyone, I am far from perfect, but I strive to be a healthier me in every aspect of my life and I have always aimed to help others in the same way.  By writing on my LifewithBri blog and teaching health and wellness classes at my church, I was hoping to reach different individuals and help in any way I could, but something was missing…my certification.

I am pleased to announce that this past week I enrolled into an intensive 11 month Health Coach Training program and began the journey to  become a Board Certified Integrative Health Coach recognized nationally by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.  It’s time to “walk that talk.” At the 6 month point in the program, I will able to begin coaching my very own clients and finally begin a side career in something I am truly passionate about in life!

This is something that I have personally wanted for a while now, but always found an excuse to place is on the back burner–well, not any longer! I has certainly taken me some time to muster up the courage to take this step forward in this new chapter in my life.  With much prayer, so much love and support from family and friends, and my faith in God, I am confident that I am making the right decision. I know that he will continue to provide the much needed strength and continue to open the doors needed for me to be successful (just as he will do for you.)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.- Jeremiah 29:11

Trust me, it’s a lot easier said than done, BUT it will be well worth it.

I look forward to sharing all of the information I am given about nutrition, building strong relationships, physical activity, career health, spiritual health and all other knowledge I gain throughout this program.

So what area in your life do you need to begin to “walk that talk”?  Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to do too much at once, but what is that one thing that you really want to focus on accomplishing?
