You know it all too well. You've walked untold miles in the shoes of overwhelm, having so much on your plate that nothing great is getting done, much less the mountain of the mundane that stands in your way: dishes, laundry, dishes, laundry, wipe and wash, to and from work, up and down go babies, in and out of town, left and right run the teens, down and out...FEELS THE MOM.
I get you. In fact, I totally get you!
As I type this I am distracted by the background noise of a 4 year old and the two year old on my lap straddling to happily nurse and hang on for a time. They are happy. They are with me and not being pushed away. I can think of situations more productive for my work, but my kids need this mom-preneur, and it feels right at the moment that they are included in my productivity. After all, I'm here to write to you about the feeling of overwhelm, over-extension and anxious racing through the tunnel of life.
St. Josemaria says, "There are some who pass through life as through a tunnel: they fail to realize the splendor and the security and the warmth of the sun of faith."
You can't see the view when you're going through the tunnels of central Europe, and it's only because you're going from the grandeur of one view of the Alps to the other. You are literally under the mountain atop you.
When you are feeling like you are overwhelmed and under-productive in your vocation, you are figuratively stuck in the tunnel beneath all the greatness that surrounds. You have to get into action to get out of that tunnel where the air is stale, polluted and harmful to you.
Go oxygenate yourself with spiritual, physical and mental practices. Shelve what are the niceties, and get to the necessities. Do them regularly. Do them well.
What can you go without today that is racket, clutter and chaos for your world? What will you trim out so you can show up in the more important things in life?
Will you trade social media time for a workout or other self-care? Will you trade t.v. viewing for the mysteries of the holy Rosary? Will you trade driving to fast food for pulling out the veggies and meat to make a savory feast with your love to garnish it? Will you trade staying up late on your phone so tomorrow you can RISE into your intention and out of your overwhelm?
You can be built and blessed in Christ, but it may take a deeper formation than you know. This may take more expertise that you actually have. It may take someone training you and speaking life into you that you've previously not had.
I want to mentor you into living your ideal, manifesting what you dreamt was possible, and creating a life and legacy you're really proud of for the glory of God.
If you wait to trigger this opportunity, just pull overwhelm in a little closer cause you're going to be cozy with it...
Let me talk with you soon on my time and my dime so you can strike CLARITY... finally. Book our chat HERE.
Do you feel the urgency? Can you hear the call? Did you get the memo?
This weekend you are called and guided by your life of Christ to connect with those around you! Reach for the high road with body, mind, and soul to grow! Carve out a time of prayerful rest and reset!
You're able to do these things, but are you available?
The forerunner of our needs for this weekend is, us, steeped in Christ. We are each able to go deeper, stretch further and climb higher, but NOT if we're too busy to make that happen. I'd suggest this as a small bit of framework to open up the spaces you crave this 4th weekend of Lent.
Here's how you might answer the call:
1. Take a silent and prayerful 30 min alone...
Commit to more prep before going to Mass or in thanksgiving after receiving the Eucharist. Perhaps you stay up later tonight and hit that darkened silence and stillness with a lit candle and an icon or crucifix. Whatever you do, make space and sacrifice your busyness on the altar of your life.
2. Get out the door and exercise with others...
There is connection and community waiting for you on a fitness effort over the weekend. Needing to hear and be heard by your spouse? Accomplish that on a fit outing to communicate with body and mind. Want to see that girlfriend for fellowship? Meet up for some fitness at the same time. Kids getting a little stir crazy in the home? Head to a park and play really hard for 30-45 min. while they do, expressing your youthfulness. Pop on a Catholic podcast and just keep cranking.
3. Hydrate and detoxify the bodily systems...
This is as simple as eating really fresh fruits and veggies this weekend. Make sure to take in a good quantity of raw or steamed produce and more raw fruit (eaten all by itself) than you have lately. Saturate the body, filter the kidneys, release the toxins and regenerate the cells. Sip on teas, make organic protein powder into a thin and hydrating smoothie. Relax and rest the system with proper nutrition in good amounts.
4. Plan the next week with a quick sketch of what you want to do...
If you fail to plan you have effectively planned to fail. Our time of returning to the Lord this Lent is quickly closing and you'd better want to savor each fleeting moment. Planning will secure better practices so things are already prescribed for you, taking the guess work out, so you step fully into your daily YES.
If you want a life crafted with intention and action for the flesh and the spirit, it's time you were only just ABLE, but avail-ABLE. I'll help you create this and thrive. Give me a call this week to discuss for free what this could look like for you personally. Book me down below today!
Now, go enjoy an active and deeply faithful weekend with God, yourself and others.
Glory to Jesus Christ,
It's time! The New Year is here for you to finally reset in health and holiness!
Daughter of the Church, Olympian, World Champion and mother of 6, Rebecca Dussault,
will be your coach and guide on this personal journey!
Reset and cleanse with me from Jan. 11th - Feb. 9th, 2021
Practice of Prayer

Learn a simple integration of key superfoods to radically change your energy, clarity, rest and resilience in short order! Fall in love with the lifestyle that heals from the inside out.
Weekly workouts to balance the body and bring it into better strength, stamina and grace.
Develop the habit and ditch the excuses. I'll show you how!
Friend, you get a choice in this matter…
Will 2020 leave you with regret or reset?
I know, I know! “Reset” is a hot topic right now, and for real reasons! And while there is already a ‘Great Reset’ happening to all of society, I want you to know you’re ahead of that curve and choosing to reset YOURSELF. You must ready yourself body, mind and soul. If not now, when?
By the way I, too, have regrets.
I regret that I didn’t find more powerful tools to heal more women sooner.
(Totally nailing this, now!)
I regret that I clammed up and stopped filming workouts for a long period of time after gaining 48 lbs. with my last baby and lost it slowly.
(Filiming again regularly, now!)
I regret that I get so busy with some of the day-to-day that I let my legacy work slide.
(Building my businesses side-by-side to help women to be whole and holy, now!)
I regret using excuses to avoid adventuring harder when I should have gone and done it.
(Signing up weekly to do the great things again, now!)
I regret not being as prepared as I’d like to be in the grand scheme of food sovereignty.
(Farming hard and learning things by trial and error, now!)
I regret that my kids will not be brilliant academically…oh, wait! We’re totally not wired this way, so it was NOT in the cards! Not nailing this, not now…not ever! (Trying though, really trying!)
My friend, these regrets get me nowhere. NO-WHERE. What is needed is action!
If I want something to change, I have to change something!
I am choosing to RESET, and not REGRET.
In 2020, despite all its ridiculous challenges, I was able to start two other businesses, carve out my best health in decades, homestead like a crazy lady and lean into loving my teens though big transitions and make 2 x the amount of money I did last year. I am more deeply in love with my spouse, my house, my community and my faith. Glory to Jesus Christ who has seen me into a place of increase! Oh, glory to Jesus Christ!
I am all in on being RESET! Are you?
Can I help get you there faster and now?
Can we come together in a vital space to help you reset for 2021 to shine on you?
I have the tools to get you past that regret, which isn’t serving you either, and to write a new story of victory for you, BODY, MIND and SOUL.
You’ll not find anything like it: FAITH, FITNESS and FOOD all under one approach to get you to your holy tension so you begin to rein again and regain the greatness you’re made for.
Chat with me soon so we can get you rolling into the New Year with a perfect methodical and proven plan. If you don’t, you may regret it…
Chat with me for an hour for FREE (link right here) and I'll impart my wisdom and invite you deeper into the journey of the holy, healthy you.
In the coming Christ,
Coach Rebecca Dussault

See you in the Healthy and Holy ADVENTure soon and may Our Lady pray for us who have recourse to her in the Incarnation! This is going to be powerful!
In the Incarnate Lord,
With Satan breathing down your back in a whisper, he assures you that no harm can come from just one…more…bite. He assures you that you’ll have enough will power after the box is empty or the bag has no remaining contents.
You feel in control, but are you?
With the weight of your flailing mindset and a garnish of anxious depression, you listen to the voice which tells you just to linger in bed or even go there and escape the worries midday of your inactivity that perpetuates your struggle. You are comfortable stalling out your life in escapism for just a bit longer.
You feel in control, but are you?
You actually cooperate with a force bigger than yourself in these and more moments. You are being manipulated. Its spewing lies about your body while you soul is being sold bit by bit as you avoid what must be done in truth.
You must cast off the lies that you are not enough, made to fail, always and obviously in a deficit and the bi-product of a poor breeding or upbringing…you will hide there, hoping to be unnoticed as though the high road precludes you gaining it.
You feel in control, but are you?
You should instead be triggered! You should know that these lies are no more than the great deceiver festering you toward destruction, thought by thought…action by action.
This is your TRIGGER WARNING.
It should trigger you to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
It should trigger you to ask for help to come to light from darkness.
It should trigger you to avoid your own traps of escapism and activate.
It should trigger a return to greatness from comfort!
Are you realizing this is your TRIGGER WARNING?
You who are suffering unnecessarily with sleeplessness, obesity, being overworked, stressed, marital tensions, single-parenting, chronically ill, on medication, anxiety, hating your very self and how you and St. Paul both can say, “I don’t not what I want, but the very thing I hate.” Rom. 7:15
This is your warming to get triggered and PULL THE TRIGGER ON YOUR HEALTH AND HOLINESS!
Let’s team up to pull you through this mess you’re in, and get well clear of it.
I have an hour of my time with your name on it for FREE to begin the counsel you’ll need to change. Hit me up for that today by clicking this easy link. Struggle to change or struggle to remain the same. The choice is all yours.
On your side in Christ,
Do I intimidate you? No, seriously!?
Do titles like Olympian and World Champion bring about a huge sense of inferiority? How about homeschooler, homesteader, elite athlete and mother of 7, Byzantine Catholic or having an incredible top 3% marriage?
Have you assumed that we can’t relate because I have it all figured out and wouldn’t understand YOU? Think again.
These things could not be more far from the truth.
I hear you. I see you. I feel you. I am one of you.
Maybe you think I’ve never really been hurt, become blue in spirit, struggled being overweight, lacked motivation or been partially derailed and adrift for a time?
I assure you that I don’t have some perfect past, some untarnished record of all things truth, beauty and goodness in my life.
I have my own mess. We ALL do. I am one of you.
I am sprung from divorced parents.
I have siblings I don’t see eye to eye with and are opposites of spiritually.
I am from a small community and grew up in a ‘bubble’ away from actual diversity.
I have 6 children and also a 7th who only lived for 2 hours in my arms 5 years ago.
I deal with life and death on my homestead daily.
I have thinning hair, cracking farmer heels…and a bit of a temper.
I am awkwardly parenting teens and eating copious amounts of humble pie to do it.
I am Catholic.
I am woman.
I am mother.
I am one of you.
My journey is mine, and yours is yours. One is not better than the other because they’re both just JOURNEYS. At the end of the day, we’d like to end up in the same place, but undoubtedly we have to believe in the route we are each taking to get there.
My path and yours will be marked with the unfortunate, the distressing and the unavoidable. It will show us how little, weak and wandering are our hearts. I know this for certain because I am one of you.
Therefore, I propose there is no time like the present to take charge of what can change, to apply gently a school of moral virtue to our lives and learn to use our bodies, minds and souls more substantially to glorify God.
The more the world gets shifty, the more stable we MUST become.
We need to answer the call to steward and not be stuck. Good news! No worries. You’re off the hook and DON’T NEED TO MAKE ANY CHANGES.
The above message is for an exclusive group of gals that the whole world is counting on to keep a holy culture, to brighten futures, raise the greatest saints, asking the right questions and bleeding out their love over and over.
It’s for the moms. The faithful moms. The fit moms. The CATHOLIC moms.
NONE of us are any of those perfectly, so join me on the wild ride to becoming better and making personal progress in many areas right now for the sole glorification of Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
I will mentor you in all I know. I will grow you and sharpen you! I am ready and willing to challenge you to next level living in a merciful, fun and gentle manner.
I believe you can do it because I am one of you.
Let's chat about where you're at next week. I am ready to spend an entire hour with you ON ME!
Book the chat you need to have HERE.
Coach Rebecca Dussault
Yes, momma, YOU.
Do you feel numb enough yet? There’s so much going on, and yet, somehow you’re in a place of inactivity…
You’re being pulled in so many directions, but somehow you’re still not going anywhere…
Just raise your hand high if this is TRUTH to you.
We’ve all lived some pretty crazy stuff lately, and it isn’t over yet, in fact, many of these things are likely part of our new normal. Time to hone in one what we’ll make of our personal "new normal."
Is it more family time, prayer time, regular workouts, growing food, fellowshipping, lending your soul in service to those in need, etc.?
As our very wise priest would say, “if Satan can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy!" We can all realize that we oft went a pace that was way too feverish!
How crazy to think that life can be this complex and demanding!
Maybe you’re closing your business, loosing your house, disjointed from family, grieving grandma and you find your just gripping with nails clinging to day-to-day aspects of raising your beautiful family!
It’s busy all right! It’s also scary, uncertain and definitely tenuous. Your mood swings wildly.
There must be a better way. There must be an option for slowing down, getting more clarity and moving forward methodically.
I, too, get this. I’ve been spread out so thin before that I thought I might just tear a hole. This spring has been a little bit like that for me. Hence, I took a break from writing you.
As if I wasn’t busy enough raising 6 kids, nursing a toddler, running a business, shaping a happening homestead, and keeping a cleanly home, I added 6 chicks, 4 kittens, 3 geese, 10 cows and 8 piglets, another 1/2 acre of garden and a 24, x 40 pleated greenhouse!
Clearly every day should kick off with milking a cow in the early morning hours and it will! I’m doing it!
However, It got a little crazy for a few weeks!!
With all of this beautiful bovine newness, my normal fitness slot or adoration in the living room all alone opportunity was co-opted by the flowing white gold of homestead life, jersey milk aplenty!
I want the benefits of the raw milk for our family, but it comes at a price!
It demands my time, energy and money with a new constancy…
This is okay.
I have now pulled past tired, learning, trying and striving and into a place with good systems and structure within which to thrive. I quickly adapted to my new normal, and so can you, whatever it is!
…and just to make it all more fun, we on the farm meanwhile inherited a jersey bottle calf which we are actively trying to make a beef cow adopt for feedings! She was being called Half n’ Half Calf, but was up graded to Breve. LOL! She's so sweet.
You get the point. Life isn’t about slowing down. It’s about speeding up, changing lanes smoothly, and keeping your eyes on the road until the destination is safely reached.
For you this is heaven and nothing short of it. God needs his new saints NOW!
Maybe you’re ready to change lanes from exhaustion and inflammation and begin to heal yourself with food?
Maybe you're desiring to speed along to more excitedly toward your sanctity through Catholicism?
And maybe you're wanting that strong, recovered body so the rest of your life is full of the “yeses” you and the Lord have in mind from the bedroom to the boardroom.
Yes, I just said that.
YOU desire and deserve the best you, fit and faithful!!
Let’s get after it,
Let's chat your personal plan to health freedom inside and out! Take a free hour with me on a call so we can move the beautiful mother you are forward methodically. It all begins with a simple YES.
We all need solid strategies to cope with this quarantine! It’s not going away anytime soon. Our methods may differ one from another, but some can have very common themes and application.
There are a lot of things we must do to live well at this time, so queue up your creativity to see the miraculous and mentionable amongst the mundane.
"I hope, above all, that you approach this competition with that disciplined and focused attitude which helps to form every person and which can teach order, loyalty and respect for people and laws as well as being a training ground for building strength and dignified behavior.”
Look just a little deeper into what you’re doing today and find a way to rewire the rituals so that being home, safe and healthy with your crew is more attractive than anything you could go do.
Let us unite more closely with the suffering body of Christ at this time,
Want to solidify your lifestyle of faithfulness and wholesome living?

I'm still surprised when women complain of boredom or live knowing that they piddle their precious time away by just settling with who they’ve become…
Truth is, in a time like this, I've never been busier.
I don't see this shutdown as a time to rest and relax, and you shouldn't either.
Now more than ever you have time to make new opportunities, craft your future and to secure and things in your path headed downhill that you need to reroute to the uphill.
Rather than gluing your face to seductive time traps, sleeping in, Netflix or Facebook to name just three, get a list of productive, life-changing moves to make in the days ahead:
1. Create a list of things to buy which enhance your life. Have you put off buying new religious items, gym props, health foods and tools just because you've been caught not living your ideal for way to long? Refocus and remember the best time to act is when no one else is.
2. Get your home and relationship affairs in order. Update your will, write your parents that letter, share your secrets, ask for forgiveness, turn your life's page. Not because a virus is running you down, but because this has always been the right thing to do…do it while there’s time.
3. Refine your goals, vision, and values. There's nothing like a really good shake down to sort out what actually matters in life. Use this time to become clearer than ever on what direction this life is taking you.
4. Pare down. Go through your clutter in home or heart. Decide which things are causing you to bleed the slow death. Get real with yourself about what you do and don't use and what isn’t truly life enhancing. Make it spring-cleaning on steroids so you come out leaner and meaner on the other side of this.
5. Poke holes in your plans. You are still not as prepared as you could be. Look at all the levers of your existence and decide which ones you need to pull to be more independent and which strategy makes you deeply connected within your web of support.
8. Purge your activities. This has largely been done for us, but decide as a family that’s you’ll never have a better opportunity than this to re-forge your family's path and culture.
9. Get a handle on your health. This is a great season to return to your more agile and adaptable self through sport. Not only is your health one of your prime assets, but your family and community needs the best of you, so bring it! Eat more grass-fed natural meats, grow veggies, cut back on all things sugar and processed foods, exercise regularly, drink more water, and get more sleep. Pray, pray and pray some more.
10. Start your passion project. You keep telling yourself you'll write the novel, record the song, paint the picture, become pregnant or renew deeply your marriage so it lasts. Well, God has given the means NOW by his mercy.
YOU are NOT on shutdown...so get on it!
Much love to you and your family,
Want to talk specifics? I’d make the time anyway to chat about your personal challenge and help you forge the path forward. Book that free chat right here.
