Count Your Blessings

It is so easy on this journey to get down and frustrated, when this happens I remind myself how fortunate that I am. Weight is something that I can change, there are many people who face insurmountable obstacles that they can't change. I tell myself stop attending my own pity-party and get going!

Do it Now

Weight loss only gets tougher as we get older. You will never again be as young as you are today, so go out and exercise and eat right. Don't put it off any longer.

When addiction is a good thing

After my first training session, I felt more like the "real me" than I had in 20 years! I decided in that moment to let that be my new addiction - choices and activities that support me feeling like the best of myself!

Just Breathe

It is the piece of equipment we don't need to purchase, or remember to take with us. When we quiet ourselves and focus on our breath, breathing in and breathing out, focusing on the rhythm of life as it circulates within us, then it is easier to make empowered choices, and remember who we are.
