This video really inspired and reminded me that age is mostly just a number and that no matter your age you can improve and transform.  Sonny was in his mid 40's before he ever picked up a weight and started working out.  Now it has become a core part of who he is and what he stands for. I want you to think about your life.  What is something you can start doing that you might have thought y … [Read more...]

Do This One Thing and Life Will Get Better

help1

What is one thing you can start doing that will have a profound impact on your life? Asking for help. Our society tells us that asking for help is a sign of weakness. A sign that we aren't capable of doing it on our own. A sign of failure. I look at it as the opposite. It is a sign of vulnerability and gives someone else the opportunity to be a blessing. I recently shared a powerful story of … [Read more...]

I hope you have been able to get a chance to watch some of the Olympics. I have enjoyed hearing the stories of the athletes overcoming great odds to achieve excellence in their sport. A couple of the cooler stories came from speed skating and cross country skiing.

What does eating processed food and inactivity costing you?

1Healthy Eating

It is so easy to live in denial about the costs of inactivity and poor nutrition. We can justify to ourselves that healthy food costs us more, or we don't have time to exercise.

Animated snow

I had a rough past week. My car, which is one of the worst cars ever built for snow, got stuck 4 times over the course of a couple days, ending in the most dramatic fashion...I was driving up Gammon Road pumped to teach my Fit Moms session. It had snowed no more then 1 inch, and my rear wheel drive car made it 3/4 of the way up the hill and decided it couldn't get up any higher and wanted to slide … [Read more...]

Was The Biggest Loser Winner TOO Thin?

1 Biggest

Unless you tune out all media, it was hard to escape the buzz over this week's BL winner. Rachel, 5'5, went from 260 lbs to 105 lbs in the course of the 8 months. Was The Biggest Loser winner too thin? I am not here to judge if what she did was unhealthy or not. I have read reports that she ate 1,600 calories a day and worked out up to four times each day, but who knows... I wasn't with her 24/7 s … [Read more...]
