The Secret to Motivation and Determination – Get Things Done!

March 19, 2013

What do you do to feel inspired?  My clients often tell me they desire something SO MUCH, but they just can’t seem to find the motivation. I know exactly what they mean, and I also know the secret to changing it. I remember a few years ago, one of those (many) times I was living in [...]

“Did I Do the Work I Needed to Do, and Did I Do It Like a Motherfucker?”

February 8, 2013

I won’t lie, living where the sun comes out everyday can be a little distracting for me in the work department! Since I’m working mostly from home, I have further distractions (laundry, Hulu, etc.). I’ve got a good system going now–early morning client, go for a walk, cup of coffee, work… yoga, friends, etc. I [...]

It’s Quite Simple, but Not Necessarily Easy—Take Charge and Change Your Life

April 23, 2012

Remember the old days when TVs didn’t have remotes? I remember when we first got a cable box that sat on top of the TV–it had a dial, and you had to get up to change it. I’m not sure when remotes appeared, but I sure don’t know anyone without one now! How torturous would [...]

Start Today…

March 13, 2012

I love it when I read a quote and it really clicks with me (or when it makes something really clear that I should have been aware of already). Similar to last week, I’ve been finding a theme in my work over the past few days. Being a wellness coach is an interesting job because [...]

January 17, 2012

My week is a chaotic mix of To Do Lists and Deadlines. I know, everyones’ lives are like that in their own ways (which is why I thought I’d mention it). In spite of the chaos, I’m realizing a few things about how I’ve changed over time. I don’t start my workdays in a frenzy [...]

Sunny Side Story

May 14, 2011

Throughout my childhood, I was rarely exposed to anything bad or scary or negative. Sure, my dad could be a little intimidating when he had his disciplinarian hat on, but that isn’t what I think about when I reminisce about my young life. I never actually heard my mom swear until she said the word [...]

Success Story: Wendy!

February 20, 2011

As I read Wendy’s story, I just get this big grin on my face…she is a true inspiration and proof that it is possible to take control of your own health! I met Wendy when I was wellness coaching full-time in the corporate setting. She was 22 years-old, and gearing up for her wedding day! [...]

Ready, Set…..GO!?!?! Sometimes Going from Stop to Go is the hardest part.

August 4, 2010

Creating a lifestyle routine of healthy habits is not only ongoing (as our understanding of what is healthy for us continues to evolve), but it also involves a lot of strategy.  Often, I let people know that it’s not necessarily the plan of attack that is most important, but the plan of getting back on [...]

Change can be hard. It’s usually hard when we are trying to push ourselves and force ourselves to fit a mold or improve ourselves in a certain way that (1) we’re not ready for or (2) we’re doing for the wrong reasons or (3) we just don’t have the drive for. It really all seems [...]

This post is a spin-off of Supersize Your Cup, and the topic was one of the suggestions I made for increasing your capacity to make room for healthier habits in your life. Most of the time, Making Ourselves Happy is not at the top of our To-Do List. How did the world (our culture) come [...]
