BRAIN WARRIOR STORIES

TANA'S STORY

ANGIE'S STORY

TOMAS' STORY

Began co-leading a BWW group

Began co-leading a BWW group and I hope to be able to use what I’ve learned in this course to help others.

Managed to resist

Managed to resist all the bread, pastries and strudels in Austria!!! It was hard!!!!

Thank you so much for offering this program

I started out weighing between 210-215 lbs. This morning I was at 176 lbs, and plan to be at 175 soon! I did not do this program just to loose weight, but to improve my health. For years I dreamed of getting down to 175…. and I find it amazing that I should reach this… Read more “Thank you so much for offering this program”

Getting more things done

I’m getting more things done with less tiredness. – Listening more & enjoying life even though there are stressful things happening. – Encouraging friends & family to eat healthy & leave the sugar out.

Happier and healthier

We’ve been working on getting his daily schedule set up for back to school and we’ve added your idea to start the day in a positive way with focus, appreciation and gratitude. We also did a little craft project to make a gratitude tree. He put “leaves” on the branches which were little tags with… Read more “Happier and healthier”

A bunch of social things

I did a bunch of social things this past weekend that I normally would not have done, and my capacity to be around people for extended amounts of time has increased. Having a teen who just got licensed to drive meant having family discussions about safety, good nutrition before driving, expectations and setting limits–I struggle… Read more “A bunch of social things”

Establishing a habit

I continue to insist on dishes adapted to my needs when in restaurant. I stood up to my friend’s pressure to give in from time to time. I bought weights and elastic exercise band to exercise at home and add to my daily walking, I am establishing a habit to be ready when the snow… Read more “Establishing a habit”

Walked away from several situations

Keeping on… keeping on. Walked away from several situations where I was offered really unhealthy choices to eat. People looked at me like I had two heads. It drives me crazy when they say… “you have worked hard, you can treat yourself”. One voice is telling me.. they are right, I have worked hard and… Read more “Walked away from several situations”

A wonderful gift!

I travelled out of town, and got sick and was able to manage food and exercise (and drinking water) without a hitch! A little over a month ago I was reluctant to go on this trip because I was worried I would get anxious and feel alone and not be able to manage well. I… Read more “A wonderful gift!”

I was glad I saw the label!

I chose to substitute a recipe after reading that high fructose corn syrup was in my mayo. Instead I did balsamic vinegar and olive oil for a dressing to go over my broccoli and cauliflower salad. I was glad I saw the label! So I could do something instead!

Wrecked havoc on my routine

I had unexpected out-of-town visitors for 11 days and wrecked havoc on my routine. I managed to not completely blow my diet and workouts with all the sightseeing and driving I was doing. YAY!! I had to cook differently than I usually do, so I tried to stick to protein shakes and smoothies for my… Read more “Wrecked havoc on my routine”

A victory that I didn't just give up

I have had a very busy summer and missed a few weeks of the class. When traveling I left my supplements at home and also ate junk food–not a lot but I did. I could definitely tell the difference in my energy, sleep, and even had some pain in my knee. Back home and on… Read more “A victory that I didn't just give up”

I just do it!

Still exercising every single day for 30 minutes. I do not go to bed until I exercise! I don’t let life get in the way of exercising. I just do it!

I am really proud of myself

I am really proud of myself. This week as I faced the usual options that would’ve saved me time and money but would’ve bad for my brain, I chose to do good for my brain. I took the time to prepare foods and chose better options in spite of cost. It also enabled me to… Read more “I am really proud of myself”

Starting to lose extra weight

Starting to lose extra weight and tone up. Like the way my jeans are beginning to fit.

My husband looks great!!!!!

My husband looks great!!!!! AND he is no longer pre-diabetic! Thank you.

Happier and healthier

We’ve been working on getting his daily schedule set up for back to school and we’ve added your idea to start the day in a positive way with focus, appreciation and gratitude. We also did a little craft project to make a gratitude tree. He put “leaves” on the branches which were little tags with things and people who he appreciates and is grateful for. It’s right by his bed so he can see it every morning and he can add to it. I feel so great that I can share things to help him be happier and healthier.

I did a bunch of social things this past weekend that I normally would not have done, and my capacity to be around people for extended amounts of time has increased. Having a teen who just got licensed to drive meant having family discussions about safety, good nutrition before driving, expectations and setting limits–I struggle with follow through). I’ve been able to communicate that my anxiety and worry is higher and what I need from my kids due to my heightened sense of hyper vigilance.

Establishing a habit

I continue to insist on dishes adapted to my needs when in restaurant. I stood up to my friend’s pressure to give in from time to time. I bought weights and elastic exercise band to exercise at home and add to my daily walking, I am establishing a habit to be ready when the snow keeps me in.

Walked away from several situations

Keeping on… keeping on. Walked away from several situations where I was offered really unhealthy choices to eat. People looked at me like I had two heads. It drives me crazy when they say… “you have worked hard, you can treat yourself”. One voice is telling me.. they are right, I have worked hard and it’s not going to kill me. My warrior voice is speaking louder… yes, it’s going to kill you… it’s poison! Doing better this week on exercise.. now that I have me exercise partner back to hold me accountable.

A wonderful gift!

I travelled out of town, and got sick and was able to manage food and exercise (and drinking water) without a hitch! A little over a month ago I was reluctant to go on this trip because I was worried I would get anxious and feel alone and not be able to manage well. I went and had a great time! My energy and ability to be around people exceeded my expectations! I didn’t have any anxiety, and when I got sick, I was able to intuitively take care of myself. I was with other women who eat like I do and take good care of themselves, so it was like being with my tribe! It was a wonderful gift!

I was glad I saw the label!

I had to cook differently than I usually do, so I tried to stick to protein shakes and smoothies for my meals while my guests ate all the stuff they shouldn’t (not my fault!!)

A victory that I didn't just give up

I have had a very busy summer and missed a few weeks of the class. When traveling I left my supplements at home and also ate junk food–not a lot but I did. I could definitely tell the difference in my energy, sleep, and even had some pain in my knee. Back home and on track with supplements, hydration, eating right, and getting caught up on the video lessons. That is a victory that I didn’t just give up, but chose to get back on the program.

I just do it!

Still exercising every single day for 30 minutes. I do not go to bed until I exercise! I don’t let life get in the way of exercising. I just do it!

Seeing the criticalness of meditation

Learning more little by little of what to do and eat. I have found this stressful at times keeping up with all the recommendations but I do the best I can. Comparing products not just accepting what someone tells me about theirs. Quality key. Seeing the criticalness of meditation.

I couldn't have done it without BWW

I am extremely afraid of heights, but this week, I went on a difficult 7.5 hour hike (ledges, cliffs, and all) and made it to the top of the very steep butte! I couldn’t have done it without BWW (I also brought veggies and hummus for snacks, while my friend brought junk food.)

Able to resolve a conflict

I was able to resolve a conflict between me and my daughters without turning to food for comfort. Instead I thought of how I could turn our negative conversation into something positive. I purchased 2 red roses and gave them each a card that told them I was sorry for our tough conversation and assured them it was out of concern for them because I love them and treasure the gift of each of them.

Killing the ANTs

Only had one incidence of using unkind words while driving! I was killing the ANTs before they turned into hurtful words.
