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 […]
Self-help books don’t always sit well with me. I think there are a lot of them with good intentions, but there are so many that leave something to be desired. But I also think that it comes down to who is the intended audience, and am I really them. I picked up Rachel Hollis’s book, […]
Dear Cristina, I hope you’re well. By the time you’re reading this you’ve already survived your first year in your 30s. It wasn’t so scary, right? That’s kind of my hope, that it was less scary than you thought it could be even though you didn’t want to admit it. But don’t grow up too […]

This is how society discusses health, but it’s really about the act of gravity and there are many other more important numbers we could examine.

I walked away thinking that balance isn’t what we’ve grown up to believe it is.
Our work lives bleed into our personal lives, and in many cases I think it’s appropriate.
Trying to keep the divide will just make us frustrated and feel defeated.
“If you believe in something, believe it firmly.” – Argo You know what’s weird – photos. I have no issue with candid photos at parties, I have no issues with photos in the gym and I had no issues with my photo being taken on stage, but having JP take my photo for the workbook […]
“Learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult tasks.” —Isaac Watts I like new things. They bring mixed emotions – excitement, fear, shock, joy. Changing up my routine isn’t new, but I guess the way I’m going about it is a bit different and that’s going to make it interesting for the next few […]
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.
