All Is Well

Where’s your focus? Do you spend more energy thinking about what could go wrong or on what is going well? I believe in planning for the future. We need to be prepared. We don’t need to worry about every detail that could potentially go wrong.  There is a balance between thinking things through and obsessing….

Mission Accomplished 

Today I will pass in a project I have been working on for months. When I wasn’t sitting in front of my computer, I was thinking about sitting in front of my computer.  It isn’t just any old tough work duty. It was an assignment I dreaded and feared for twenty years. I had twenty…

Good Enough ?

My standards vary depending on the subject matter. After spending 5 minutes cleaning my car, I will step back, notice the remaining dirt and declare, it’s good enough. After all it’s better than it was! When I chop veggies for soup, I get bored. I decide they will become mushy anyways. I stop dicing because,…

I Believe…

 I believe anything is possible! I believe everything happens for a reason! I believe      all difficult situations have something to teach me. Even though I may not understand any of it in the moment.I also believe my thoughts have a powerful impact on my life. Our personal belief system is a silent, internal…

It’s True

Attitude is everything. Have you ever noticed, when you are focused on how bad things are going, more negative situations seem to occur.                                 I don’t reach my fitness goals, when I think about how tight my parts are. I…

One Thing At A Time 

Multitaskers drive me crazy! Their anxious energy makes me feel frantic. I typically take a big step back when I encounter their force field. There’s research that proves overdoing it, is not as advantageous as chore jugglers believe. Stanford University discovered that multitasking is less effective than doing one thing at a time. The study…

Joy To The World 

 I have encountered an unusual amount of stress lately. There’s so much going wrong it’s just silly! I’m waiting for someone to jump out and yell,” You got punked! Or you’re on Candid Camera!” I don’t care what era the tester is from. I just wonder, can I still be smiling when it’s over? Each…

Get The Party Started

When my husband and I opened our wellness studio, our purpose was to help people reach their fitness goals by promoting a consistently healthy lifestyle. We were resistant to suggest any quick fixes, like weight loss challenges. I can’t stand behind something that makes people go crazy just to get the number on the scale…

Today Is THE Day!

 Everyday I wake with renewed hope, restored enthusiasm, and feeling optimistic. It’s as if a quiet pep rally occurred while sleeping. I have no memory of the process! But by morning my slate has been washed clean. It’s as if the disappointments and failures of yesterday never happened. I think to myself, today I will…

Too Much Of A Good Thing

                             One day, at the gym I was unusually hot. The seasons were changing and the air conditioner hadn’t caught up. I drank more water than usual, to try to cool off. Not a crazy amount. To be honest I can’t remember…

The Blame Game

I have a thyroid disorder. I’m almost 47. I have a new job. Those are my “reasons” why my pants are tight. They are all true. And they are all excuses. Having something to blame feels comforting. It lets me off the hook a little. The truth is I eat too much. That’s the truth…

What Can You Do?

We all have the ability to feel stronger. One way to increase your inner strength is through physical activity. But the reverse is also true. Exercise has a powerful impact on us mentally and emotionally. We all know we can get stronger, if we exercise. Inner strength works a like a muscle too. There are ways to build emotional…
