No Sugar Challenge

No Sugar Challenge

I hear all the time, “I eat so healthy, but I can’t loose weight.” I want to say 9 out of 10 times, but I can’t because my experience has been 10 out of 10 times, it’s the amount of sugar people eat. It’s going through the day, mindlessly, grabbing all types of sugar food […]

The Surprise of Kale & Green Smoothies

The Surprise of Kale & Green Smoothies

My family and friends laugh and shake their heads at me all the time. They can’t believe how I’ve changed my eating habits. They now think I’ve gone to a new level with the green smoothies. The funny thing is, they are all surprised when they love them. My mentor and chiropractor, Dr. Martha Linn, […]

Smoothies!

That’s right, food! You are feeding yourself amazing food! Excuses be gone! Seriously, you really […]

The Beauty Myth

The Beauty Myth

This is a hard blog for me to write. The world of celebrity and advertisement is in our DNA. I know that sounds dramatic and over blown but we as a society have never been without it. It has gone on for so long, and it has created a billion dollar industry. We keep it alive. The […]

Gretchen's Cabbage Salad Recipe

Gretchen’s Cabbage Salad Recipe

The reason I love sharing recipes is not only because I enjoy the food, it’s also enjoying the memories of where and who they were shared with. Last week’s Cabbage Salad episode is a perfect example of that. My husband and I went to our dear friends, John and Gretchen’s, amazing new home, in NY, […]

Eating HealthIER

Eating HealthIER

Answering Your Questions… Finding HealthIER options We left my brother Tommy’s episode up this week again for 2 reasons: 1. It was requested by our viewers. 2. I wanted to answer questions we received about using butter in the chicken wing sauce, keeping the skin on the chicken and the condiments for our chili – […]

Worthiness

Worthiness

Feeling unworthy is a lack of self love. I can look at my family and friends and give you a long list of why these amazing people deserve everything life has to offer. If they don’t feel that to be true, my gut and mind will work together beautifully so I can clearly state the […]

Sheila's Story about her "Irish Spaghetti" recipe

Sheila’s Story about her “Irish Spaghetti” recipe

Healthy Pasta Sauce Okay, I’m not a great cook. I would never pretend to be. I cook simply and clean, which makes it easier for me to stay healthy. Outside of cooking a protein, vegetable and having a salad for almost every meal my tastier repertoire comes from my big Irish family. There are 8 […]

Intuition

Intuition

As Tony says, “We’re all intuitives.” I call it following my gut. For a long time I didn’t know it was the same thing. When I had that realization I was amazed how often I squashed ideas that came up and discounted the intentions that I set for my day as coincidences. My parents would […]

Why Be Present?

Why Be Present?

How present do you think you are throughout your day? A great way to find out is to recognize how many times you are not present. Knowing you are not present makes you present. Knowing that when you find yourself thinking of something in the past or daydreaming of things in the future you can […]

Raise the Vibration - Choose Happiness

Raise the Vibration – Choose Happiness

Choosing Happiness… When I was first introduced to this information I used to get a pit in my stomach every time I read or someone told me, “you have to choose your own happiness.” I would feel overwhelmed! Let’s face it, in theory, who wouldn’t want to choose happiness? I would get so frustrated… I […]

Happiness is a Choice

Happiness is a Choice

Happiness is a choice. Yes! That’s very true but in our everyday lives why is it we don’t always make that choice? For me, it is because of old thoughts — let’s call it old data. Like Tony said, “We are not our thoughts.” So where did our thoughts (data) come from? Even though well […]

Accountability Light... Sheila's Story

Accountability Light… Sheila’s Story

Tania calls this week’s episode “Accountability Lite” which not only makes me laugh… but it rings true. I was amazed when watching last week’s episode (shot last year) by how heavy it was. Even though it’s a serious subject, I was so happy to see what this work and a year has done for me […]

Accountability, Sheila's Story

Accountability, Sheila’s Story

When we shot this week’s episode I was not planning on sharing my story. Not because I’m ashamed, just because I’ve left it so far behind me. Don’t get me wrong, when I started telling my “ultimate” accountability story it all came flooding back but not in a painful, emotional sense. A sense of just […]

Spirit Guides

Spirit Guides

A skeptic’s experience with Spirit Guides By Sheila Heylin When I first heard about Spirit Guides, I was a bit skeptical. Practicing what I preach, I had to not judge, keep my mind open and at the very least, listen to what is placed in front of me. I did just that. As I prepared for […]

An Evolving Look at Accountability

An Evolving Look at Accountability

Accountability By Sheila Heylin To me accountability equals freedom. Freedom from letting others and situations run your day and even your life. In the first accountability video I shared a very personal account of an abusive relationship I was in. I don’t think that I made clear the fact that I wasn’t blaming myself for […]
