#Olympic Mindset Recipe

Daughter's recent swim meet.

Daughter’s recent swim meet.


In pursuit of having an #Olympic mindset, daily I read SPLASH the magazine from USA Swimming. We receive it because my daughter is in swimming. Truth moment: I secretly have wanted to be a competitive swimmer ever since my best friend in grade school took me to to see her swim meet for the first time in 5th grade. Unfortunately, no dice for me but I lucked out! My daughter was born to be a swimmer and chose it on her own not by my pushing. When she was in my womb, the nurse had said “wow, the baby has big feet!”. I said he/she will be a swimmer! Well, she turned out to love swimming. I am one lucky mom as I love to watch her swim and see her smiling face when she looks up to see if I am watching.

I digress. Here is the recipe I found to be perfect for my family and help with getting out of the door to school on time with a healthy, protein-filled tummy!

Muffin Tin Egg Scrambles (SPLASH magazine)

Ingredients:
6 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp skim milk
1/2 cup diced vegetables of choice
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup shredded/crumbled cheese (ex. mozzarella, cheddar, goat cheese)
Salt and pepper, to taste
cupcake/muffin wrappers

Directions:
1) Grease muffin tin with Pam, or by wiping oil on the inside of each cup. Alternative is to use muffin wrappers (double them up
to prevent sticking)
2) Preheat oven to 375. Heat oil on medium-high heat and lightly saute vegetables to desirable tenderness.
3) Remove veggies from skillet, and divide cooked vegetables into each of the 6 cups. Divid crumbled/shredded cheese evenly
between cups as well.
4) Beat eggs in medium mixing bowl and add skim milk. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture into each muffin cup, filling to
approx. 3/4 full.
5) Bake for 15-20 min. until lightly golden. Remove from oven and serve warm.

#Olympic Challenge for the week. Feb. 3rd-Feb. 9th

blog olympics #Olympic Challenge for the week:
Make ONE adjustment in our #MINDSET!

All #athletes have a certain mindset and those the excel are those who have a champion mindset. We can apply that to our own life and ambitions!

First what is mindset?
Definition: A mindset

1. A fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations.
2. An inclination or a habit.

Olympic Mindset taken from http://www.incomediary.com/the-gold-medal-mindset-8-olympic-quotes-for-entrepreneurs:

1) Your Biggest Competition is You
2) Do What you Love
3) Ignore Nay Sayers
4) Don’t Get Caught with Tomorrow
5) Success is a Journey
6) Cherish the Challenges
7) Be Prepared When Your Moment Comes
8) Greatness is about Rising to Yourself

My personal challenge for the week for mindset:
“I am an athlete, therefore, I must train daily”. I am currently doing #Insanity
My goal is to do it daily. Last week I did it 3x.

What is your personal step to change one aspect of your mindset to something to improve your life?

For accountability and to make it happen write your step in the comments section.

So many emotions

April 12th, 2013
Writing from Santa Monica Starbucks. What an amazing thing to be writing in the sun and experiencing something new. The frustration of not knowing where to go is still with me even though I thought, “Finally, a place to hunker down and start working. Nope, no place to sit except outside with no table or WiFi.

I know this sounds like I am complaining, I am only pointing out what I did not realize I would run into and I have to take a breath and look at this as part of what I am learning is exploring and finding the places to sit down and work.

Emotions of yesterday, my first day in LA.

I woke up yesterday and all I saw on my calendar was white space, lots and lots and lots of white space for the next two months. To be quite honest, I do not recall every having this much white space except may be in the 4th grade during a summer I had nothing but reading going on.

Granted, I am keenly aware of what an amazing blessing these two months of white space are for me. I personally do not know of anyone who has been given this gift of time to figure out who they really are and to spend focused time on their dreams.

I am incredibly grateful to my husband, kids, parents, family and friends who are helping make this happen.

Back to white space, I had looked at it and froze. I am a person who has multiple things going all the time and thrive on being busy so white space scares the bajeezeas out of me. I counted to 3 and took a big breath then said, what do I know to do? I love running and a goal of mine is to run everyday, I need to write, update my blog, recap and write about what I learned at the Social Media conference, grocery shop, research casting directors and make a plan, have my acting coaching session, call friends who live here and class at night. There are many other things on the list as well.

Whew! That does not look like white space to me anymore, does it?

Then I talked with my husband, who knows me so well and he reminded me to just make a plan and start with small steps. He said go sit at Starbucks as that is familiar and work out a plan. Great idea and I had planned to do it but I did not get a chance to do that yesterday so where did that white space go?

To those of you who freeze and feel like they are chocking with white space, start making a list of what you need to do and what you know to be true and you will realize there is no more white space

Class last night with Mark Attaberry:

LOVED IT!!! We are honing in on our types and learning how others view us.

I learned that I am most viewed as intelligent. Wow. That does surprise me, all my life I have been trying to prove that I am smart. I have a learning disability which made it difficult to go through school and do well on tests, I had two brothers who are amazingly smart, my little brother knew how to spell better than me. What I did not realize was the learning disability is what made spelling, taking tests and doing math difficult for me. I discovered my learning disability sophomore year in college but the damage of thinking I was not smart enough was done by then.

It has taken much self-reflection over the last 2 years, some counseling and an acting class for me to change that thinking.

Now, as I think through my life and my accomplishments and understand how others view me, I no longer need to prove my intelligence. I can sit and rest in it and I accept that I am intelligent. I will need to remind myself daily of this so my self talk changes.

I think that is what has been happening in acting as well, trying to prove I have talent instead of just resting in the talent. We are working in class on how to understand who we are, accept it and be comfortable with who we are and what we can offer which in turn will show in auditions.

All the people in the class are such fascinating people who bring many stories and experiences. They were all welcoming and friendly. I recommend every actor I know to take Mark Attaberry’s class if at all possible. He is delightful, insightful and here to help actors “make it”.

Today, I am making the most of this adventure, running along the beach at Santa Monica which is so much closer to my house than I thought, writing and planning.

Amazing how many emotions can occur in one day and how the next day with a little attitude adjustment, a sense of adventure and acceptance can change a bad day to a good day.

In LA baby – lobster and coffee dispute

Wahoo!! I made it to LA!!! My entrance in was not too bad except I do look like a lobster. Does this scream “tourist” any louder? I enjoyed the sun a little too much today. What is a MN’s girl who has not seen sun in many months to do?

I drove along the ocean for some time and with the sun talking on the phone with director/producer of Evergreen, my kids and husband and enjoying music. I did not run into traffic until an hour outside of LA. Then got stuck and missed meeting a friend/new roommate before her class so now waiting at a coffee shop called The Coffee Bean.

I parked on the street, score! No fee after 6pm. My first stop in LA is at this coffee shop. I ordered a regular coffee and he asked “for here or to go?”. Me: “umm…to go” thinking it had to do with what time of cup I would drink the coffee. Nope, he asked me again and I said “well, really I will be here for a little while then going, so would that be for here or to go?” Worker: “well, you did say to go first, right?” Me “well, ya, but I will be staying here, not really sure what you are going after.” He said: “well, there is this tax thing on if you are here or to go.” Me: “oh alright” actually thinking “Will you just charge me and give me my cup of coffee or do we need to dance about this some more?” He did eventually give me my coffee but no further clarification on the tax thing but he did call me sweetheart so I guess all is good.

I bet I will know this coffee tax thing very well by the time I leave in late may.

Here’s to coffee and taxes!!
