5 Simple Solutions To Maintain Your Weight This Summer

I blogged last year about how I consider *maintaining* your weight to be a success. I mentioned that I would much rather maintain a flat stomach year round with little headache, than labor through weeks of strict dieting for a chance encounter with a 6-pack for a day. Extreme dieting is, well … extreme. And …

What Someone Thinks About You Is Not Your Business

Business

I once received an email from a woman who was going through a hard time in her relationship with her husband of 30 years. Without her saying it in so many words, I gleaned that infidelity was somehow involved and she had made the decision to stay with him and they were trying to work …

MusselFit_Flat

If you’re like most women, you struggle with some insecurities and self-doubt. On some level, you don’t think you’re good enough.

When Hardcore Turns Into Harmful

Mondays

I realized something recently: I don’t want to work that hard. See, I posted last week on Twitter the questions I often ask myself when it comes to nutrition. Instead of, “what foods will help me get lean?” and, “how can I lose 10 lbs by summer?” I ask things like: How effortless does this …

Smiling's my favorite

“Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”  ~Gordon B. Hinckley I grew up in an Irish Catholic family. To say you did things out of obligation or guilt is an understatement.

You ever feel like you just need to tell someone off? You feel like you just NEED this person to KNOW how you feel about something? Because it’s THAT important to you. They need to hear YOUR truth. It’s THAT urgent for your own sense of peace. I felt that way recently. And I want to …
