I’ve really missed blogging, but happy to say work has been so busy that my spare time has been non-existent. But I swore that before this week ended, I would post! So here we go, yay! Last week I had the pleasure of participating in my first triathlon. Now hold on, before you are impressed, […]
If you look at the most common reason people fall away from weight loss efforts, it’s motivation. The excitement and enthusiasm felt when starting a weight loss plan is like the first day of school, the possibilities are endless and everything is new and fresh.

There is never a day that goes by that I’m not pinching myself and asking, “How’d I ever get so lucky?”  I love what I do for a living, I love the fact that I have an opportunity to change lives every single day! So, when I have the opportunity to work with someone in […]
So this past week I had the privilege (again) of lecturing for a fitness conference ECA. This is one of my favorite conferences (no, not just because I get to go to NYC) but the other fitness pro’s and diversity is intoxicating, I LOVE IT! This time I decided to head in a day early […]
This past week, I had the privilege of getting away for 7 days on a cruise. To celebrate 25 years of marriage, I figured a cruise would be a nice way to get away and celebrate, I was right. For 7 days I was out of the loop, no phone, no TV (well, very little) […]
