You are Worth the Gift of Your Own Attention

“As human beings, attention is our only currency” Hello, dear! What did you do for dinner last night? Pick up something quick to go, eat on the run, sit down to a nice dinner with friends or family, cook a little something? Do you even remember? So many women I...
Are You a Cheater?

Are You a Cheater?

Oh my, I’ve really had to practice “staying in my lane” this past week in my Social Media. A friend of mine who also helps people with nutrition, weight loss, fitness, and self-care has been posting about a new plan she’s promoting. Under this plan you “only work out...

How Do You Show Up?

This week’s post is a little on the long side, but it’s so important, I hope you make the time to read it through. I’m not going to lie…when I thought about writing out my weekly “what I actually ate” part of this newsletter and my website this week, I really, really,...

Pleasure First

I have a commitment to myself to getting my blog post up on Mondays, but as you can see it is Tuesday.  So..what happened?! I spent yesterday getting back into my movement “routine”, visiting with a friend, and basking in the sunshine at a going-away get together for...

The Myth of Deprivation

If you read last week’s news on How to Know What to Eat, you might remember that I spent the week at a silent retreat.  No talking, no technology, no reading, no wine…there was caffeine, but I had very little of it.  Just nature, listening to a morning and night talk...

Vegan, Keto, Paleo…oh my! How to Know What to Eat

There is so much confusion and conflicting information about what food is good or bad for us out there.  And also a lot of moral opinions about what we should or shouldn’t eat. Quite frankly, I find it exhausting. So, this week I want to share with you my key...

The Biggest Thing that Stops Your Progress

The Biggest Thing that Stops Your Progress is. . . … not moving forward. (Also, maybe, when the cat sits on your keyboard…but, I digress). What a revelation, you say, thank you very much. But here’s what I mean. . . My boyfriend’s birthday was last weekend. I...
