Taking a Break from Health Coaching: Part 1 Going on “Vacation”

I have no problem planning a rest day when I create my own workout programming, but I’m terrible about taking a vacation day and completely detaching and essentially taking a rest day from normal life. I imagine there are many out there like me. We should get t-shirts and form a club. There have been […]

You can react or you can respond

It’s actually really weird sitting down and writing here. I’ve been holding a pen a lot more lately. Sometimes that would lead to the computer screen, but mostly it would stay in my notebook. This though – I’m writing this from my phone. I don’t do that often because I really do enjoy sitting down […]

Keep building doorways, and rooms, and houses

I like writing on the last day of the year. I like writing every day and while I haven’t blogged in almost a month, I’ve done more writing this month than I ever have. Like I’ve said before, start right now. Don’t wait for something whole. I know that a new day, new week, new […]

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 […]
