INSPIRED by Lorna Jane Clarkson

I was provided a copy of Inspired by Fit Approach and Lorna Jane, but I was not obligated to write an additional post. I was inspired to do so. 

I celebrated my birthday last week and, ironically, I celebrated my birthday last year with Lorna Jane’s Active Living Challenge. Who knew that Move Nourish Believe would go so far beyond the challenge?

Inspiration from Lorna Jane Clarkson that changed my life.

  1. Dream BIG Take chances. Stop making decisions based on fear of failure and live life with a little less practicality. After reading Lorna Jane’s More, I stopped debating a decision and signed up to become a certified personal trainer and started creating my dream job.
  2. Balance Maintaining a healthy life balance is essential for overall health and well being. No more extremes in fitness, work, or nutrition. This is like a breath of fresh air.
  3. Simplify Living my best, most beautiful life doesn’t have to be complicated. With busy lives it’s not always easy, but the concept is actually quite simple. I decluttered my thinking and actions. I’ve made it real life doable.
  4. Set Up for Success I have created a morning ritual that starts my day on a positive stress free note and sets me up for success in the day ahead.
  5. Find Your Purpose Seeing the value in what I can contribute, feeling a sense of fulfillment and experiencing that feeling you might not be able to explain, but you know it’s right.
  6. Believe Giving myself the gift of unconditional acceptance is the most treasured of all.

What does the inspiration look like in real life?

In the past year I:

  1. Became a certified personal trainer.
  2. Got a promotion at work.
  3. Started writing a business plan.
  4. Wrote my first business proposal.
  5. Opened my heart and mind to yoga and found a passion I never dreamed of having.
  6. I began the journey of recovering from an eating disorder [and getting closer everyday].
  7. I’ve aligned my goals with my passions and priorities and this is only the beginning.

I became the DREAMER; the DOER; the BELIEVER that anything is possible.

  1. What an eye-catching, inspirational post. I will be picking up Lorna’s book. I’m looking forward to spending time on my favorite beach with my son and his football friends unwinding from a hectic but successful football season. My personal biggest achievement is keeping my blog going this year and continuing to learn more about this craft!

    1. Hi Teresa, nice to meet you. Did you buy the book? What did you think? Love it right 🙂

  2. I am going to check out your recommendation. Happy Birthday and congrats on having a wonderful year! I love that you mention how your daughter inspires you to live your best life. My little girl is only 16 months and already I want to be healthier and happier so I can set the example for her.

    1. Thank you for your kind words Kerin. Your daughter will inspire you in more ways than you expect. Did you buy the book? What do you think?

  3. Love that collage of photos! How fun that your daughter was there helping =)

    1. Thanks Becki. We had so much fun taking the photos. We’re doing another shoot this weekend 🙂

  4. I love the Dream Big piece of advice. I think so often we have lofty goals and never actually do anything to get there OR we feel like XYZ needs to be in place before we can start working towards something…we just have to start doing whatever it is we want to do and figure it out along the way!

    1. I finally realized there is never a “perfect” time and way too often there is a reason to not do. Just do it is more than a Nike slogan. Much love xoxo

  5. LJ is so inspiring and I love the photos you shared. 🙂

  6. I love this! and what beautiful pictures and story! You have a lot to be proud of! I so love the blogging world and all the things I am learning and the friends that I am making, I am so glad I did not give up after my partner walked away. Now it is all mine and it is a good feeling 🙂

    1. All yours and well deserved! Enjoy that feeling. I’m sincerely grateful for blogging friends.

  7. What a great way to celebrate your birthday, especially knowing how much you’ve accomplished and how much you have to look forward to!

  8. I am trying so hard to stay positive, every single day! But I have such a stressful job, and even though I started out the day smiling, I was near tears this afternoon. It’s so hard to let it all just roll off my back. Tomorrow is another day…

    1. I’ve been there Wendy. Stressful job and doing the best I can to stay positive and keep a smile on my face. It’s not always easy but I’m trying.

  9. Jill you’ve truly had a breakthrough year! It’s been inspiring to follow your journey. My “big” achievement this past year has been overcoming my fear and learning to swim at last.

    1. You have rocked the swim Marcia. It’s crazy how many things fear can stop us from trying and accomplishing. You inspire me with your journey!

  10. Sounds like you are on the right track for you and your DREAMS! Very happy for you Jill.

  12. Love this Jill, you are truly an inspiration! All of your goals sound very similar to mine, and I love reading about how you’re setting out to achieve them 🙂

  13. Gosh yoga has a way of changing us doesn’t it? Your transformation is beyond inspiring and I love you for sharing it with us. Let’s see biggest accomplishment. Getting over myself and finding the joy of taking risks. This week I pan on working on my business like never before. Big things are brewing I just need to stay out of my own way!

  14. This week we are getting my daughter ready for college and it’s the week of my big tri race. great timing!! Always love your positive approach to everything. I need to work on articulating my purpose.

  15. I am a firm believer that if your dreams dont scare you, they are not big enough. There is no reason to hold back and wonder what if, the worst that can probably happen is that you fall, clean off your knees and start over.

    1. Well said friend. Don’t let fears stop you and you’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish.

  18. Jill, you are so beautiful. I hope you take that collage of pictures and hang them on a wall. Congrats to you for all your successes. I wish my job didn’t suck the life out of me so I could actually pursue my dreams.

    1. Thank you so much Megan for your kind words. I totally understand having a job that sucks the life out of you. I hope that changes for you soon. Much love xoxo

    1. You can do it Kelli. It’s not easy. It will take work. But it’s so worth it!

  22. You go girl! I’m so proud of all you accomplished this year! I would say my biggest accomplishment was getting my group certification and starting to teach. I’m looking forward to my baby shower this weekend! Loving those pictures of you! So cute and so fun!

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I’d love to connect. Let me know how your fit journey goes.

      1. Really? Because I do have some questions, and there is so much information out there it’s kind of daunting not knowing where to start…

  23. Really nice post, Jill! You’ve inspired me to pick up a LJ book!

  24. ahhh this week I PLAN TO ROCK the notion of repetition being the key to mastery…and repeat repeat repeat.
