Less Than Zero

I tuned in to the Golden Globes tonight and I’m sure that I was like so many of us who enjoy watching the Hollywood elite work the red carpet. I love to see what everyone’s wearing, how their hair is styled and what jewelry they’re sporting. The... Read more

The Challenge of Change
Friday, January 18, 2013      1 comments

Change can be hard. Many of us, including myself, go kicking and screaming into it. It’s just not always that easy to do. Why? Because we’re creatures of habit. We like we what we like and we want to do what we always do. But sometimes life gets... Read more
A Crash is Collision
Wednesday, December 19, 2012      3 comments

I’ve recently been asked about crash diets, an eating pattern that is very short-term, perhaps even just a few days, in order to lose a few pounds. A fad diet is also short-term, but for many is thought of differently than a crash diet. The real... Read more
