Two things that your Why usually stems from are: Fear, or Love.
One of our members shared her story of waking up every morning hoping to begin eating clean. Yet everyday at around 4pm, after a frustrating dispute with her conscience, she can’t help but eat the wrong thing. She therefore asks what she can do to stop herself from giving in. In order to help her with her goal, we stress the importance of the right mindset, because the only person you are in competition with, is yourself.

At R3VOLVELife, mindset plays a huge part in what we teach. We believe that once one is committed to the right mindset, their chances of achieving their goals become twice as likely. A few tips from empowering women is a great place to begin.
Learn from Failure
A successful woman isn’t derailed by setbacks. Rather she is open to them, and sees them as teachable moments that allow for growth and improvement. She analyses her mistakes, so that she is prepared for the next time life challenges her. Most importantly, she never lets it stop her from achieving her goals.
“Failure happens all the time. What makes you better is how you react to it” -Mia Hamm (professional soccer player, Olympic gold medalist, two-time FIFA Woman’s World Cup champion)
Be Open to Change

We at The Mallari Movement wish you good luck!
1. Get Your Priorities Straight
Stop procrastinating, and telling yourself that you’re doing it tomorrow. Rather that bending and breaking your weight-loss plans because of your life, whether it be time to work out or, time to cook something a little healthier than your usual quick fixes, schedule time in your life NOW.
2. Reward yourself along the way
By celebrating the small achievements, you are gaining something through your journey. This provides motivational reinforcements, when you feel like giving up.
3. Select the Right Motivation
Rather than motivating yourself with a picture of just another skinny model stuck to your mirror, grab that piece of clothing in your closet that you’ve always wanted to wear, but never had the confidence to. By doing so, you are setting a realistic goal, as the piece of clothing is around your current size,...
Rabbi Carolyn Braun is the state of Portland’s first female Conservative rabbi. Although coming from a non-religious family, knew that she wanted to become a rabbi at the age of 10. However, her story gets even more unconventional. Fitness had always been a part of her life, as she used to run. She also worked out with Israelson (member of six US powerlifting teams and a two-time world champion) where she worked on general fitness and strength training, before Israelson suggested powerlifting. Fast-forward March of 2017, Braun competed in her state’s first-ever all-woman’s powerlifting competition, lifting almost 600 pounds across three events. She says, “In powerlifting, you have to be very centered, very balanced. Somebody’s helping you do that… It balances my life incredibly”.

It also releases hormones that aid in the growth of brain cells. The best workouts however, are those that various parts of the brain, i.e. Co-ordination, rhythm and strategy.
“I found myself listless and enormously anxious, slogging away at a corporate job that I didn’t enjoy. I also became disillusioned with the social routine of late nights and hungover, greasy brunches, which seemed to get so many people through the workweek.” -Laura Lea
10 years ago, the life of Laura Lea, a newly graduated English Lit. student from the University of Virginia, who just moved to the Big Apple, consisted of mind-numbing routine. In the process her shiny, simple view of life deteriorated and anxiety built up, as she got accustomed to the life of the typical New York workaholic. Her situation often led her to eat alone, and, dreading requesting for a table for one, she resorted to cooking.
Laura, from living with her family in Nashville was accustomed to cozy home-made meals, therefore, in an attempt to occupy herself, she took up cooking. So, with a tight budget, her visits to farmers markets became more frequent. She began with a focus on vegetables,...
5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO LIFT WEIGHTS...
1) PREVENTS CHEAT MEALS GOING STRAIGHT TO YOUR BELLY FAT
Want to eat that extra piece of pizza without feeling guilty? Lift weights. When you lift weights, you improve your body's metabolism. Studies have shown that an increase in type II muscle fibers can reduce body fat without changes to diet and might be effective in the fight against obesity.
