How many times have you told yourself that you can't do something because you don't feel motivated? I hear this all of the time. I can't get motivated to lose weight. I can't find the motivation to exercise. I'm not motivated right now to start something new. We all say we need to get motivated… Continue reading I can’t get motivated…..
I mentioned the 50/50 of life in my last post and it probably bears mentioning again. Life is 50/50. Half the time we are going to be experiencing good stuff and half the time we will be dealing with the negative. When we accept this concept, we can stop chasing the eternal happy. When you… Continue reading 50/50
I planned to drop a blog post on 12/31/20 at 11:59pm. Yeah I realize that no one but me would know. Still there was going to be something so satisfying about sending off 2020 with a SEE YA post. But it was still 2020 and I was on call so that post didn't drop as… Continue reading NYE PLANS
I am limping across the finish line after the holidays and really have some magical thinking around the new year. 2021 is going to be better, right? Please tell me it is because I am over 2020. I'm ready to start anew and you might be too. Have you given any thought to starting that… Continue reading Almost There
Pandemic 2020 sure wreaked havoc on some waistlines, mine included. I really thought I had this food thing down and then March 2020 hit with worries of illness, virtual schooling, business concerns and quarantining. Like most of you might have done, I turned to my favorite food group, chocolate, for relief from stress. You know… Continue reading Pandemic 20 (or 5,10,15)
Full disclosure - I am a Certified Weight Loss and Life Coach and I am biased. If only I could be Oprah I would hand out life coaching to everyone in the audience like she does new cars. I don't know a single person who couldn't benefit from a life coach. Ok, now that's out… Continue reading What the heck’s a weight loss coach???
Hands up if you've ever thought you were too busy to lose weight. I guess we are all waving our hands like we just don't care because everyone is busy. December seems like it might just be the busiest month of the year what with the card sending, present buying, tree decorating, cookie making, candy… Continue reading Too Busy……
Have you ever had a gnawing hunger that was so profound you could swear that you were starving? Yeah, me too. It’s embarrassing to feel this way because I have in no way ever experienced food scarcity. I live in a part of the country where cheap food is abundant. The city I live in,… Continue reading Hangry Monster
I finished my T day dinner somewhere between Heckin' Chonker and Oh Lawd He Comin'. How about you? Looking back I went into the day with nothing but Pumpkin Pie (homemade including the pumpkin puree) on my mind. Just the anticipation of dessert causes my old brain to release a little dopamine to let me… Continue reading Oh Lawd he comin’
I used to think that emotional eating meant scarfing down a tub of ice cream after heartbreak or eating a nachos supreme after a particularly trying day at work. It didn’t occur to me that emotionally eating also applied to celebrations and the mundane. I for one used to think that a party wasn’t a… Continue reading Do you emotionally eat?
