Welcome to Day 6
I’d like to address motivation! Most people have it backwards. They think they should feel motivated BEFORE they exercise or see progress.
It does NOT work in that order. When you first started it was exciting, but that QUICKLY goes away and that’s totally normal. I’m a HUGE believer and being our own motivator. Be your own raving fan. Know what your goals and intentions are and stick with it. Don’t look at this journey as short term. This is long term.
No quick fix here! This is a LIFESTYLE change. It’s as simple as that. If you think LIFESTYLE it will completely shift the course of action.
Speaking of success and motivation, have you thought of what you’re going to do next?
It’s already day 6, can you believe it?
If you haven’t thought about it, I want to prepare you for the next step.
On day 7 I’ll share with you another one of my non-negotiable and what’s allowed me continued success on my health and wellness journey.

Confession: I’ve eaten hummus with a spoon. And while I’m at it, I’ve also eaten black beans right out of the can. I’m admitting these things because this is a safe space, but mainly because we’ve got a delicious recipe that combines these two wholesome foods: Black Bean Hummus.
Black Bean Hummus
Total Time: 2 hrs. 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 6 servings, about ¼ cup each
1 (15-oz.) can black beans, drained, rinsed (reserve liquid)
¼ cup low-sodium organic vegetable broth
3 Tbsp. tahini (sesame butter)
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Sea salt (or Himalayan salt) (to taste; optional)
Ground cayenne pepper (to taste; optional)
1. Place beans, broth, tahini, garlic, and lemon juice in a food processor (or blender). Pulse until smooth. If hummus is too thick add 1 Tbsp. reserved liquid at a time until hummus is desired consistency.
2. Season with salt and cayenne pepper if desired.
3. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend.
