“Uncertainty is the most generous source of opportunity.”⠀I saw this the other day, posted by my friend & former mentor, Mary Shenouda (aka The Paleo Chef) and it made my whole day.

While I can really relate to this on many personal levels, I think it applies really broadly to overall health goals as well.

I am currently going through the process to freeze my eggs. I can feel burdened and stressed by the uncertainty of the process and the future, or I can remember that uncertainty is the most generous form of opportunity. Freezing my eggs presents me with opportunities.

I am currently building a tiny house. There is a lot of uncertainty about where I’ll live and if I’ll like it. I can be stressed by that or I can remember that uncertainty is the most generous form of opporunity. Having a tiny house means so many options & opportunities!

Too many people fear the future. They aren’t sure if they will reach their goals. They aren’t sure if they will maintain their results. They don’t know if the approach they are trying will give them the results they want.

Yes, the future is full of uncertainty. But don’t be plagued by uncertainty. Don’t be burdened by it. Don’t become a victim of all your opportunities.

Uncertainty is the most generous source of opportunity because YOU get to create the future you want. ⠀

If it’s not working, change something. ⠀
If you don’t like it, change it.⠀
If you aren’t happy, change. ⠀

Uncertainty is the most generous source of opportunity. It’s time we start acting like it.

I found myself breaking up the barbell more that I thought I would, but that’s okay by me. I showed up, I worked hard and I feel proud. There’s no need to get much more complicated than that!

On the food front:

Let’s talk about how hungry I was this morning! Holy smokes! I’m rarely  hungry in the morning but I think the hormones for the egg freezing process are revving up my hunger. Who knows, it could also be fatigue but either way, I was hungry this morning so I made up some bulletproof coffee before my workout.

Around 10:30am I had a breakfast salad bowl with a little bit of raw cabbage (half as much as I normally have), bacon, eggs, Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo and a few walnuts. No avocado today.

A few hours later while working on the Fat Loss Fast Track launch I had some dark chocolate & macadamia nuts and then an early dinner of a salad bowl from Chipotle Mexican Grill: lettuce, chicken, salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
