“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” –Vincent Van Gogh

In the past few months, you performed the very hard work of getting to know yourself and setting long and short-term goals.  You learned, with you Brain and Body total body THRIVE exercises and how to use them in a circuit.  Your Brain was de-cluttered by the implementation of list-making, and I hope, by accounting for your past successes, your just rewards and by going deep with people you love, you are feeling more Bliss.

Make a list of your accomplishments over the last few months.  Have you met your goals?  Compare yourself from when you started to now:  How have your BODY and BRAIN changed?


  • MOVE: Know Your Numbers
    • Has your weight changed?
    • How about your waist?
    • Do your clothes fit differently?
    • How many days a week are you investing in MOVE-ing?
    • What is your favorite exercise?
  • EAT:
    • Did you change your eating habits?
    • Did you adopt the 500 rule?


  • THINK:
