Welcome To The Little Black Dress’ Guide To A Just Too FabYOUlous And Healthy You!

Corby Carlin Winters, M.A.

It is my passion to help women of all ages reach their fullest potential physically, emotionally and spiritually.

There is no one in the world exactly like you! No one has the same qualities, style and grace that you alone possess.  Remember, you are just too fabulous.

The Little Black Dress’ Short Guide To A Just Too FabYOUlous And Healthy You Essentials for Healthy Living From The Inside Out.

I started this series because I love sharing about how to live a healthy lifestyle from the inside out.

It is near and dear to my heart for many reason, especially because as counselor for many years and now working full-time as a Professional Life Coach and Speaker I meet many women who struggle in taking care of themselves emotionally, spiritually and physically.  Many women have distorted  views of themselves and fight low self work and identity issues.  I want to give women, like yourself, important information to help you experience the healthiest life you possible and make long-term choices that will lead to optimum emotional and physical health.

I love health and nutrition and I love helping women discover their passion and purpose.  I always have.  I have more books than I can count on nutrition, yoga, relaxation, healthy cooking, searching for significance and growing deeper in Christ – the list goes on. I am afraid Winters could tell you exactly how many I have because he has helped me move them many times.

My method is to work with the whole person: mind, body and spirit.  I focus on each area because every area of your life is connected.  When we strengthen one area, we strengthen all areas.  My goal is to help you identify your strengths and change your perceived weaknesses into positives and most of all be all that God created you to be.

It’s been said that “true beauty is not in the face, but a light in the heart.”  When we remember that inner beauty is the true key, everything else will begin to fall into place.

I will help equip and empower you with the tools necessary to be your best in your pageant.  It is my goal that when you will walk on stage you will be secure, confident, poised and the best that you can be.

And I am in the business of training Winners for Life!

Evaluate Your Life Style

Ask Yourself, What am I doing to create a healthy life?

Are the choices I am making overall positive or are they negative?

Ask yourself things like, Am I getting enough exercise? Am i eating right?  Am I getting enough rest?

As you begin to ask yourself questions like these, It allows an opportunity to evaluate your lifestyle.

If it is time to get moving,  then it is time to get moving.  Have  you put your workout on hold because the kids are home?

Then st a plan to start a  workout plan.   So go for it, get moving.  I love the buddy system, but if you don’t have buddy then grab the iPod and go!  We got the Sons all new bikes just to get them all moving and I must say it worked!

A great way to stay healthy is learning to say “No.”  You will be asked to do a million things at school, church, home and everywhere else in between. Say “yes” only to the things that are good for you and your family.  I often say I try to only do things that make my life easier and do not complicate my life and make it more difficult than it already is. So say “no” when you need to and do not feel an ounce of guilt.

Ask yourself other questions like

Am I watching to much television?

Do I have a strong network of friends?

Our lifestyle choices truly impact our everyday life and personal and professional success we will have in everyday life.

Reminder of some of the ways to stay healthy, live well and help you to continue to remember you are FabYOUlous!

Be blessed and encouraged as you remember that one simple act today can change your life forever tomorrow!

Evaluate Your Food Habits

Evaluate your food habits.  Ask, Is there habits I need to break.

If it is time to go back to Weight Watchers, a group I love and totally endorse, well, then get signed up and fast.

If you need to comb the pantry and  refrigerator to evaluate if the food you are consuming is healthy enough and toss what isn’t then go for it.  Remember we ” Eat to Live not Live to Eat!” The famous line at our house is we want to be healthy!

For some Again re-evaluate your alcohol consumption.  If you have been downing too many summer cocktails, ladies, they are not worth the calories, weight gain, expense, possible embarrassing behaviors and usually the typical headache the next morning.

Also you have to get moving, yes it is time to get moving. Have  you put your workout on hold because the kids are home? Then think about your workout plan once school starts.  We must move these old bodies.  They have to stay active.  So go for it, get moving.  I love the buddy system, but if you don’t have buddy then grab the iPod and go!  We got the Sons all new bikes just to get them all moving and I must say it worked!

As we embark on this new school year another great way to stay healthy is learning to say “No.”  You will be asked to do a million things at school, church, home and everywhere else in between. Say “yes” only to the things that are good for you and your family.  I often say I try to only do things that make my life easier and do not complicate my life and make it more difficult than it already is. So say “no” when you need to and do not feel an ounce of guilt.

This is just a quick reminder of some of the ways to stay healthy, live well and help you to continue to remember you are FabYOUlous!

Be blessed and encouraged as you remember that one simple act today can change your life forever tomorrow!

Creating Winners for Life!

Life is full great opportunity to grow, to learn and to change for the better.

Everyday opportunities arise for us to choose one path or another.

From learning how to eat healthy to  think healthy to be healthy overall.   Life is full of opportunities to honing ourselves  to learning how to perform under stress, all these are positive life applications.

Women who are confident in who they are exude an air about them, and people gravitate to  them.  As a life Coach, I am in the business of helping women create the life they want, act on the choices that will get them to the outcome they want and then live that life!  You may not get everything you want in life but you will certainly get the most out of it!.   Women of all ages will be more confident, secure and comfortable in taking on the challenges of everyday life and then achieving .

Everything I write about, teach you  and help others achieve as a Life Coach is to be carried into every area of your life.  My desire is for women to be able to be to handle any challenge that life throws at them because God want you to be great, to be a winner and experience Gods best!

Life Is An Endurance Race

As my dear old Dad use to say “The week of The Miss Oklahoma Pageant is an endurance race and the last girl standing and has held it together often wins.”

His observation was pretty close to the truth.  It is  was a long week and his truth can also be compared to life.  Sometimes there are times in life it too feels like an endurance race.  As Paul said in phippinans

There are key principles to staying healthy.  It is important to minimize stress, anxiety and disorder just to name a few.  But that can easier said than done.  Life can be full of stressful time, and it’s important we find healthy ways to rest and cope with the stress the exist around us.

We have to learn ways to de-stress. Listen to music, take long showers or bath maybe even treat yourself to a massage.  Prayer is always  a wonderful way to handle a stressful day,

One key way to lessen stress in everyday life is to be organized.   Spend part of your week planing the week ahead.  This is crucial when you have children especially small ones. The last thing you want to worry about is something you forgot to bring, or can’t find.

There are times we as women must focus on ourselves.  And you need to focus on taking care of YOU and only you.  You must have blinders on, not letting anything distract you from your goal.  The LBD’s Guide to healthy Living is you focus on your gifts and strengths.  As well as help you focus on your overall health and wellness.

Through out life there will be plenty of times you will meet people who are more talented, smarter, beautiful than you are.  But remember there is only one “you.”

Don’t focus on others, but focus on yourself.  Remember Life is learning experience.  It is more of an endurance race and not a sprint.

Sometimes  dealing with stress is as easy as remembering to take a deep breath     We need to remember to simply breathe.  Take a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth.  Relax and relax a little more! For any of you who have done yoga or Pilates, you know the kind of breath I am talking about. So why not in everyday life! Focus on your breath – it is so important, especially during very stressful or hectic times.

REMEMBER TO BREATH!  I wrote this little reminder several months ago and it helped me.  In fact it helped me so much that I have it, believe it or not, posted in a beautiful frame on a wall in my powder room.  I hope it blesses you as much as it has me.

Today, be Present.

Remember to take a Deep Breath.

And Just Breath.

Celebrate that through the

 Blood of Jesus Christ

YOU have been made Free!

You are Liberated and Delivered!

Live in the moment.

Embrace your life and free your Spirit!

 God wants to use you

 to change the world in a mighty way.

So go for it!

Your Voice Speaks Volumes

How you sound speaks volumes about you.

Proper voice inflection is a key to winning pageants. You have to sound “good.”

As your pageant coach, I will help make sure your voice reflects the right tone and sound you want to convey to the audience and judges. Soft voices are hard to hear, too loud and you come across brash.

Our goal is to find that balance and project that of a woman of strength – the voice of a winner.

The First Impression You Make

 

You Never Have A Second Chance For A First Impression

It may be a cliché, but it’s true.

The first impression you make is a lasting one.

You start making an impression when you first arrive anywhere and walk through the door.  That first impression is lasting and unforgettable and yes you never have a second chance for a first impression.

Many times “moms” feel just like that only “moms” and that is all they are.  Being a mom is a wonderful thing but as I speak to women and coach them I often find that they loose a sense of who they are and the things they want out of life.  They become children only focused.    But when mothers decided to back to work lets say and looking for employment as well as being a mom then , She is always “on,” so to speak.  The soccer sweats won’t do and frankly they never did.  The ponytail must go and your husband will probably be thrilled

The world judges us by how we dress, what we say and how we act.   Clothes, hair, accessories or lack of speak volumes about us.   It is just fact, whether we like it or not.  As humans, we are often judged right away; that’s just the way life is.  But that is part of  reason why I love the LBD’ Guide to a Healthy You is that never to late to take charge of your life and put your best  heels forward.    Our self worth and how we take care of ourselves  is not just about our looks, but also what we wear, how you appear to others and most of all the attitude we have about life!

Everything, from the clothes we wear to the smile on our face, impact others perception of us.  Our goal is to make sure that first impression is the best one and most of all the one we want everyone to remember.
