I Guess You Could Say I Own a Gym

I guess you could say I own a gym. That’s the tangible obviousness of it. But, I feel that it is more like I’m sharing an idea and this space, GEvolution, is where people can be a part of it. It’s the idea that we are capable of breaking free from the false suggestions that we cannot. It’s the idea that “intimidation” is an illusion, an un-real, a simple word that we break down together. It’s the idea that we can honor and love our body while we grow strong. It’s the idea that a commUnity of empowering energies can …

Move. Everyday.

Movement. Forever. move. everyday. Not just to our car to and from the office. And not just from our desk to the break room. And not just from our car to our couch.

Make time for you. 🙌🏼

“That’s Quite a Get-Up You’ve Got There…”

A white haired gentlemen was seated in the waiting room at the spa. He and his wife were color coordinated, like something adorable right out of an LL Bean catalogue. He sat with her as she waited for her pedicure throne to be ready. I had just finished my manicure. I was wearing a pair of workout shorts, my injured and atrophied leg, bare.  I turned right from my chair, retrieved my “she’s half robot, half woman” knee brace from my manicurist, relocated my seated position to the floor and proceeded to buckle up and in. Clasps 1-5 snapped, velcro …

Ya Don’t Wanna Get Smacked in the Face by Yo Mama.

I put a rap tape on and started working my head bob. My Italian mom wasn’t a big rap music fan at the time, or for that matter, any time….ever. After about 2 songs, my mother in typical Marie fashion, said, “Please!! Take this off, it’s slicing into my brain.” (haha! So dramatic!) So, I boldly ejected the tape from the player with an “attitude.” Yeah, I snatched …

I Need A Divorce

I have heard that we are the sum of the 5 people we spend the most time with. Quick Peek into the point I am about to make. We will establish friendships that will amazingly last a lifetime, however, we will also establish friendships that will serve a purpose for a very specific amount of time. Recognizing the end point can sometimes be difficult because we want to be supportive and provide as much encouragement as possible. But… If you start to identifying that this “friend” is undeniably occupying your valuable time with negativity, “all the things wrong” in his/her …
