Personal Improvement Plan 2014

October 25, 2014

I haven’t done this in a while—make a plan to “fix” stuff and be focused on my health. It’s not that I didn’t have a plan when I was pregnant or at other times, but I didn’t write it down and follow it for the sake of my health alone. I’m doing it now because [...]

Spring Fever!

April 10, 2011

Welcome to Spring, New Yorkers!  Today and yesterday were like being let out of jail.  The sun came out, and the temperature was mild. We spent several hours yesterday bike riding and at a playground swinging—Matthew was here for the night. I wish I had taken a picture because he had on rain boots, jeans, [...]

Personal Improvement Plan: Round 2, plus Sprouted Mung Bean Socca and Veggie Flour

March 27, 2011

I never did a wrap-up post for round one of my personal improvement plan (PIP), but it did go well. I felt better, looked better, and everything was going well. I wasn’t actually sure when I’d end it, but it happened rather unexpectedly (and I’m taking full responsibility for it!). One day, when a temptation [...]

Superfood Brunch with My Mini-Me!

March 19, 2011

Wait till you see what we invented!  They’re called Bressert Chips! I thought this week on my semi-spring break that I would have time to relax toward the end of the week. What actually happened is that I’m left wondering how I would have gotten my work done if I was not on break from [...]

Spring Break Spa Week + PIP/Candida Update

March 12, 2011

I’m on Spring Break! Well, the truth is, I teach for six colleges and only three of them have spring break…and they’re all at different times. I’m in spring break #1, which will be the best one, because it means I have a 95% work-at-home week (I still have 5 classes going on online, and [...]

The Candida Mystery and PIP Friendly Foods!

February 22, 2011

You have spoken, and it sounds like you are interested in candida. How exciting for me…I have so much to say about it, after my extensive experience with it personally and through research. It seems like the best way for me to start, is to tell you my story and then to address the topic [...]

Taking Charge, Investigating Health Mysteries…and Why PIP?

February 19, 2011

One of my foremost goals in wellness coaching is to empower people to take responsibility for their own health and happiness. Often, I feel like I should have a degree in psychology instead of health because I also notice the range of perceptions by people about what role they play in their health. My dream [...]

The Spiralizer, Sun Warrior, and Kitchen Sink Hummus

February 17, 2011

I very much love my iPad. I’ve already downloaded several books—this may become a problem because I love books, and it’s way too easy to just click them into the palm of my hand. They are cheaper to download than buy though! The case for the iPad can stand up on its own, so when [...]

The better it gets, the better it gets!

February 14, 2011

There is a great park near us where you can rent skis (and they have a tow rope). It’s $8 to ski (plus rentals if you need them), and a really awesome place to learn. I’m so glad Joe was into it–he was an extremely patient and helpful teacher. And I just skied around them [...]

Valentine’s Dinner (early), and how splurging a little can lead to saving money (iPad)!

February 12, 2011

I don’t really have many interesting food experiences this week (lots of green smoothies, kale, and avocados), since I’ve been keeping it simple in preparation for PIP. But last night, we had our Valentine’s dinner since Matthew is going to be here tonight (and he does not see eye to eye with us on food [...]
