In The Midst Of Evil

On Monday morning we woke up to hear that yet another heinous attack killed dozens of innocent people in Las Vegas at a Country music concert. The flag at our home flies at half-mast and our hearts are fully broken.

We all feel numb and somewhat helpless. But there are a few things we can do….

In these scary and somewhat unpredictable times in which we live, whether it’s a hurricane, an earthquake or an evil act of violence, we can learn from these tragedies and be more prepared.

We can rest assured that evil lurks in unexpected places.  We can be more vigilant and aware of our surroundings in every situation. Know every exit and say something if you see something. Never take anything for granted.

I want to be as healthy, strong and vibrant as I can so that I can take care of myself, my family and others who might need me. Immediately following hurricane Irma, when power was out for tens of thousands of people in Florida, when no grocery stores were open, I was able to provide Naples area first responders with super-food nutrition.

Evil doers want us to be scared and afraid.  They want us to curl up in a ball and hide.  But we can’t let this tragedy deter us.

In the worst of times we see the best of people. Strangers helping strangers get out of harm’s way. Off-duty law enforcement and medical professionals jumped to assist the wounded. Volunteer first responders gave of their time and energy to help others. In record numbers, and for hours, people stood in line to donate blood, food, clothing and water.

We will not stand idly by.

We will continue to pray for the victims and families of this senseless act of violence and the healing of our great country, and we will continue to live our lives to the fullest every damn day. Despite evil.

Despite evil, I exercise every damn day. I want and need my body to be healthy and active, to minimize visits to the doctor, to minimize sick days and to maximize every moment I have.

Many people have asked about the superfood nutrition I use to fuel my body and give me energy.  My favorite product (the Isa Lean Chocolate Mint Shake) is available again for a limited time and I wanted you to know.  (I’m buying five cans!) There are also a few new seasonal products that I cannot wait to try! I’m sending this email before they’re available because they WILL sell out!

If you’re already an Isagenix customer, head to your back office & order beginning at 1:00pm EST today, Tuesday, October 3rd.  If you’re not already realizing the benefit of having superfood nutrition delivered to your door every month, email me back and I’ll help you custom order a package today!

I carry the products with me everywhere because you never know when you might need them and it’s important to be prepared.

Ok this photo doesn’t quite capture the true essence of how great this meal is. Ted said it was the best pasta he’s ever had! Here are the ingredients: Half a pound of ground venison, half a pound of ground wild boar, 1 jar Mario Batali vodka pasta sauce, salt, pepper, oregano, fresh basil, cayenne pepper, a pinch of sugar, garlic, onions, Parmesan cheese, burrata cheese, fresh roasted garlic & chive papparedelle pasta. After meat is browned, add sauce, and spices. Cook fresh pasta five minutes or less. Drain pasta and keep a quarter cup of the pasta water to add to sauce. Combine sauce and pasta, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and add Barata cheese. Bake in 400° oven for 5 to 10 minutes until bubbly and yummy!

Blog & Weekly Update July 17, 2017

Learning / EducationalI’m officially 55 years old! When I was thinking about what I wanted to have and to do on my birthday to make it special, I wondered why we only wait until our birthdays to do those special things we always wanted to do – to eat cake, go shopping, celebrate with friends, or go on a trip? Why don’t we live every day that way – or most days? Obviously we have things to do in our lives that cannot be avoided, like paying bills and cleaning toilets, but what if we slice out a portion of a few occasional days doing things we enjoy, surrounded by people who uplift us instead of those who bring us down?

I wanted to share a few of my bucket list items for each day, not just my birthday.

Here’s my bucket list of birthday wishes: Watch the video here:

  1. Have more fun, less heart ache.
  2. Be the crazy lady dancing on the beach. We’ve all seen that woman who’s older – my age – with headphones in her ears, most likely playing the music loud, dancing, wearing a bikini – whether or not she should – and why not? She exudes love, laughter and light. We could all use a littler more of those things, can’t we?
  3. Once in a while have a chocolate croissant and coffee for breakfast
  4. Get those good endorphins going every day – work out more and laugh more
  5. Make my health a priority every day! As a former migraine sufferer, and having had a life-threatening illness, I know the importance of having good health.
  6. Take a cooking class
  7. Read more books
  8. Watch less TV
  9. Worry less about what others think about me, haters are gonna hate – give em something to hate about! Be yourself!
  10. Do more yoga (maybe even take yoga teacher training)
  11. Spend more time with people who appreciate and love me, and less time with those who don’t.
  12. Dance in the rain, dance on the beach, dance in the kitchen, dance when no one is watching, dance when everyone is watching!
  13. Be grateful for three things every day
  14. Watch more sunsets and sunrises
  15. Be more assertive: I was born and raised a people pleaser, so this is work-in-progress. Watch this video to see how I recently made a significant breakthrough: https://youtu.be/O0wIyiMU5bA

 

FitnessOne of the things I wanted to on my birthday was teach a Zumba Fitness class & share my passion for healthy living with others!  The miles of smiles made it all worthwhile!

As my friend Alvie Shepherd says, “yes you can!” And yes I did – do a headstand on a paddle board with my friend April looking on in disbelief!
Yes I can!
And…

A post shared by Shemane Nugent (@shemanenugent) on


Yes YOU can do whatever you set your mind to do. There are many examples of people overcoming obstacles, so why not you? Why can’t I do a headstand on a paddleboard at 55 years of age?
What is it that you’ve always wanted to do but hesitated?

She read my blog about a child I lost, but I always knew would have been named Coco.

Read my blog here: www.ShemaneNugent.Rocks/coco
On the inside of the bracelet, April engraved “Happy Birthday Mom, Love Coco”
I was instantly choked up, and fighting back the tears. Thank you April for such a thoughtful gift!

Educational Tidbits:

LearningThis week I wanted to share a personal story with you. I was born and raised a people-pleaser and I allowed others to take advantage of me and treat me disrespectfully.  Fortunately, my personal growth journey seems to be on a fast-forward track during this past year. One reason is because of candid discussions with my friend April O’Leary, who is a Life Coach. In my new podcast, April and I chat about toxic relationships and playing the victim role rather than taking ownership of our behavior.  Growing up, I remember wanting to be liked and winning the approval of my family and friends.  That mentality ultimately cultivated low self-esteem, jealousy and even depression.  Now, I still struggle with those things, but after loooooooong discussions with April, reading her book, “Ride the Wave” and developing my own tools and techniques for happiness, I’m getting stronger and more confident every day!

I’m so glad you’re here! Thanks for taking a few minutes to check out some fun & enlightening videos and posts from last week!

Educational In a couple weeks I’ll be turning 55! Rather than feeling disappointed by the numbers, I’m proud that I’ve been able to overcome significant physical and emotional obstacles in my life and, most importantly, feel better than ever! Unlike women (and men) who are hesitant to disclose their age, I don’t mind. In fact, I feel like I’m in my prime. I’ve learned how to be more assertive and speak my truth without being hurtful. When my husband asks me where I want to go for dinner, I say the exact name of the restaurant, rather than, “I don’t care,” and then sulk because he couldn’t read my mind.

You may find it difficult to believe, but I struggled with self-confidence most of my life. Especially as the wife of a rock star, it was always easier to just go along with whatever Ted wanted. Ultimately, I wound up feeling angry until I learned to voice my opinion. You might say I’m a late bloomer since it’s taken me 54 years to figure out how to do that, but I’m getting stronger and wiser every day!

The trials and tribulations we endure not only fortify us, but these setbacks help us acknowledge the people, places and things with which we want to be surrounded. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier to be (almost) 55! And, I’ll admit, this past year has brought some challenges, but also some amazing changes in my life since I found Isagenix! I feel like it’s the fountain of youth!!
