  • Internal force required

    My usual happy, upbeat self is dampened and soggy as of late. Some things have not quite worked out as I'd hoped, and the pile of them finally was enough to weigh me down.  My mood is sour, my outlook negative and overall I've been a bonafied grumpy-...

  • So much a mind game!!

    Today was Day #2 on SmartPoints. It doesn't seem too bad actually!! I think in the big picture it was a good thing that I have been off the program for a while. I have essentially forgotten how many PointsPlus were in things so it truly is like start...

  • Challenging Yourself to Do Better

    I run slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter! This shirt always made me laugh. I was a real slow poke when I started running. My walking miles are faster now than my running miles were in the beginning. Things have changed! Re...

  • The double-edged sword of size

    In responding to a post today I, myself realized how different perspectives are about how fat or thin someone is.  I'm not to my goal weight, but as I've said before I'm not far off.  I look less now at how many pounds I weigh and more at how I look ...

  • What's in the cupboard?

    I have long realized the easiest way to not eat something is to simply not have it in the cupboard.  It doesn't matter how badly I want to snack, if it isn't in the cupboard, I can't eat it.  My bonus daughter looked at me in puzzlement last week whe...

  • Barbells and Booty

    The following is a testimonial from my client Kate. I'm sharing this for a few reasons. Obviously one reason is that I coach people for a living and so showing off their progress serves as a way to demonstrate my coaching. But lets be real for a...

    I'm not sure who coined the phrase -- "One Day at a Time" . . . but whoever did was brilliant.  One Day at a Time.  Yesterday no longer matters and tomorrow isn't here.  Today is the only day over which we have any control.  Since my recommittment th...
