Chasing Real

How was work today? It’s really a small sentence and without any context it’s silly, pointless and small talk for most conversations. I’ve been a health coach for three years. I can’t believe it’s been that long and that short. Individually, I’ve worked with almost 100 women in that time. Since I started small group […]

Resetting Your Goals and Expectations for the Holiday Season

January came and went, and the spring flew by. Sometimes it feels as though we barely enjoyed summer and if you live in areas that experience extreme cold, it may already feel like fall disappeared. That’s how it feels in Massachusetts. Hoodie weather was about two weeks, give or take. The pellet stove has been […]

Getting Unstuck

That’s what I call it. When I feel I want to run away and leave reality behind for a few moments. The great escape. When I was kid, like little, I was terrible at reading. It was something I had to practice over and over and over. This is something that greatly influenced how I […]

Your beliefs can change

I have been writing this for over a month. I stop and I start. I step away. I start again. I save, I shut down. I have done so much writing in my journal lately. August was the month to bring it the mountain and sit there and write. I went 6 times and did […]

“You need to love yourself more”…

What the actual fuck. Last week a friend of mine went to their new therapist and was asked about self-care. Did they practice it? They were then asked, did they love themselves. Self-care is tricky because like all things that are gray, it’s different for everyone. Gender norms can play a role. Geography can play […]

2 bits

JP tells me all the time that I’m bad at spending money. I don’t buy things I want, but worse – I don’t always buy things I need. It’s easy for me to buy a new dress for a wedding, but trust me when I say I shop the sale rack, I check for coupons […]

Relax

I woke up this morning and it just felt odd. There’s usually a day or a two a week that we struggle to get out of bed – I honestly don’t know where that came from. It never used to be that way. Morning workouts were so easy, but it’s a new life. This morning […]

Day 92 – I actually really like my body

I had this whole post planned out. I wrote about 800 words and then deleted most of it. So. Tomorrow’s June. I don’t know where spring went, but I’m really looking forward to gin and tonics and sun and corn on the cob and Kansas City. It’s the end of day 92 into prepping for […]

I hope I never find someone who loves me like you

Growing up in the 90s, I think there are a lot of us that think back or sing back to songs and realize that the lyrics are not what we remember. First song that come to mind…Five’s When the Light’s Go Out. Second song – Spice Girls’ Wannabe. Third song – Backstreet Boys’ As Long […]
