I guess my plan is to continue to make healthy choices to the best of my ability with what’s in front of me, and continue to moderate my behavior because it’s a part of my life now, and this day doesn’t have the power it once did to change that.
In a perfect world it would be easy to say “this is one meal, I’m going to enjoy it,” but in the United States about two-thirds of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese and about half of adult Americans are trying to lose weight at any given time (CDC, 2018). This time of the […]
Where we live in takes a few minutes to get almost anywhere. We’re close enough to the highway, but not in the city – per say. You’ll hit a few lights. But really, it’s nothing. Maybe enough time to turn on the radio a listen to a few songs if I time getting in […]
I’m sorry I didn’t get to the gym when I said I wanted to. I’m sorry that I didn’t eat the food that I pre-made. I’m sorry that I went to bed early and hit snooze a few too many times. I’m sorry I didn’t go faster, lift heavier. I’m sorry I didn’t try harder. […]
I’m going to talk to you like a long, lost friend – I guess that’s the easiest way to go about this. So it’s been 14 days and before that it was 501 day. I was finishing up my first spring semester of my degree. I had signed up for three summer classes – anatomy […]

“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 […]

Nutella – yes, that counts, hazelnuts! 4. Unsalted cashew butter, store brand 5. Pumpkin Spice from Peanut Butter and Company 6. Extra Crunchy Skippy 7. […]
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.
