It’s single digits and with the wind, we’re hitting negative temperatures. I know, I know. I live in New England, I did it to myself. I like it here, but living here for about five years doesn’t make it easier dealing with the snow, the bitter cold or plastic wrapping my windows. Yes, for those […]
Here’s the blog post to pair with the video on the stages of change model. It’s a bit more detailed about the initial studies that lead to the development of the model. I highlight some of the findings that DiClemente and Prochaska had even though the initial samples were small.
As a coach , I want my client to succeed, but that also means that we need to be honest when looking at their over goals, where they are currently in their life and what they’re willing to invest in making change.

It’s been about a month since I’ve written on here, but let’s be honest, that was a recipe – that’s not real writing. I’ve said it before on Facebook more recently, but here as well – I write when I feel compelled. I write when I feel it’s the most beneficial to me. I feel […]

My schedule this fall is pretty steady because I know which days are busy and which days I have down time. The days I have down time vary in what they’re filled with, but are pretty spread out. Tuesdays are pretty light: I eat, I workout, I do homework and sometimes when my Wednesday client […]
The fall semester starts in 9 days. I’m feeling excited. I’m feeling anxious. I’m feeling relieved. I’m excited about the fall because it means more flexibility. I know there are people who think this is a piece of cake, but remember the grass always seems greener on the other side – there are still things […]

What happens when I find things in the pantry I forget I had? I start skimming through Pinterest so I can make it a fun consumable and get it out of the pantry. Today’s adventure was with a can of pumpkin puree. In the fall I always have a can on hand and I won’t […]
