My friend, Darren, hiked up 4,800 feet powered by his mind. His body followed. He said that he would do it. He saw in his mind that he could do it. And then he actually did it.
A few weeks ago, I went to Yosemite with a few friends to hike up Half Dome. There were six of us in the group. Four of us had hiked Half Dome in years past, so we didn't think twice about being able to do it. The four of us are marathon runners so we know how to push our body, manage our fuel, and gauge…

Lately there seems to be a balanced living backlash. Many people, including “expert” consultants, have begun telling overextended women to give up on the idea of balanced living. I feel sad and frustrated when I hear this.
My physician thinking kicks in and translates this to any other health issue. …Read more

“4 WEEKS TO YOUR BEST SELF”
“28 DAYS TO HEALTH”
“DETOX WITH YOUR DOCTOR”
You've probably seen ad headlines similar to the above. It seems that everyone is cleansing these days. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical at first because it seemed like my friends were either doing it for the wrong reasons ("I need to fit into a bathing suit for my trip to Hawaii") or they weren't really doing it right ("I'm doing the cleanse except that I'm drinking coffee, having a few…

When you buy a resale home some call it ‘previously loved’, I think it should be termed “previously decorated’. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. The resale home that we recently bought is a combination of the two.

I have always loved Easter eggs. I have fond memories of creating Easter eggs as a child at my gramma’s house with my cousins. Naturally, I thought this would be a tradition to share with my little guy this year.

Many of us suffer from a myriad of gut issues that may present as symptoms from bloating, gassiness, constipation or sometimes just a general feeling of fullness. We many times find ourselves reaching for over the counter remedies such as ant-acids, H2 blockers or anti-gas medicines. While these may help temporarily…Read more

I used to be a self-declared ‘Product Junkie’. I loved to try new hair, skin care and make-up products all the time. Sure, I always had my tried, tested and true products, but I also would test drive new ones as they were released or based on positive recommendations. As I have gotten a bit older (goodbye twenties!), and money and time have gotten a bit tighter (hello thirties…), I have gotten away from this hobby.

Every time I tell the Universe I am ready to pursue my passions a funny thing happens; the Universe supports me with lots and lots of opportunity.
At first, it is exciting. Then, it gets a bit scary. With scary comes paralysis. I totally forget the concept of properly sorting and shelving the opportunities that I…Read more

Like many others, I am always trying to balance the demands of my life. For many years, as a wife, Un-Schooling Mom, and Life Coach, I allowed my commitment to others to overshadow my commitment to self. Last year, I recognized my passion for assisting others was better suited in my passion for writing, and this started me on a new journey.
My passions are leading me to my purpose and finally, whole health/living is clearer. I love how that works; once you recognize the…Read more

I have always been a bit afraid of working with yeast. To be honest, it gives me the creepy crawlies, especially the name ‘dry ACTIVE yeast’. It sounds like some kind of infestation that you do not want to mess with. Anytime that I am reviewing a recipe and it has yeast in it, I generally toss it aside and try to find something else. Having overcome my fear of making a pie from scratch – I thought I should venture on to yeast.
First, I decided to make my own pizza crust based on a…Read more

I went to a leadership conference this past weekend. I was trepidatious about how the weeknd was going to go, but came away with a sense of renewal and reinvigoration.
When many of us hear leadership, we think CEO, presidents, managers, basically people in charge of big operations. What I learned this weekend is that you can be a leader for yourself, your family, your community.
Good leaders are self - reflective, visionary, good listeners, willing to take risks, flexible,…Read more

Behavior change is a tough cookie to swallow. On one hand, making a lot of changes can be unsettling for some. And making changes is something you have to decide (and want) to do. But making changes (positive or negative) starts a domino effect. It's what I like to refer to as "the chain of change." For the sake of this post, and because it's so nice and sunny outside, I'm going to stick with just the positive changes and effects for my example.
Many of you are participating…Read more
