Everyday, in every way…

I’m bringing this little ditty back for one of our awesome team members… You know who you are! BUT, I know anyone reading it, can soak it in! “Every day, in every way, I am getting better!” Say it everyday, especially when your mind is bogged down with “problems” or negativity. Neutralize those ugly thoughts with this phrase. Give your mind (sub conscious & conscious) the opportunity to be filled with empowering language. Be filled with the encouragement you to overcome, grow, thrive, LIVE!

re-build from injury, tragedy, trauma

I deeply believe in process. I deeply believe in trusting it. Knowing that each step we take can be towards a build or a re-build. from injury.from tragedy.from trauma. I believe that if we want to truly experience a healing for ourselves, we can. We just have to abide by and trust the process, sometimes with patience we never even knew was possible. It may take additional investment of time, money, discipline, guidance, but it can and will happen. In this era of one click satisfaction and google seconds, we are becoming heavily conditioned for shortcuts, quickness and easy frustration, …

Let the fluids lay stagnant.Let the battery deplete.Let the tires flatten, warp or deflate.Let the paint fade.Let the frame rust. You see where I’m going with this? That car wants to RUN!That car wants to DRIVE! So do our BODIES! MOVE TO IMPROVE! Get up. Get Active. Get Going. Get Living.

Start Your Day by Reminding Yourself About How Fuck.ing Awesome You Really Are.

Start your day by reminding yourself how fucking awesome you really are. Like make it the FIRST thing you do! These days I am saying affirmations first thing in the morning instead of in the middle of the day. I used to pick a time in the middle of the day to meditate or just go into silence in a room in my house I have specifically designed for just chillin. I’d read and say affirmations in there. But half of the day had already happened so it felt like o was trying to “reset,” or neutralize and shitty thinking …

Thoughts & Words. Strength or Weakness.

Behavior Kinesiology Behavior Kinesiology is a branch of kinesiology (the study of human movement) that studies how thinking directly impacts our physical body, stress symptoms & the effects on our immune system.  Behavioral kinesiology helps us to determine if we are carrying old limiting beliefs that are continually self-sabotaging. With that being said, words are very powerful. So powerful, that even multiple tests performed in the field of  Behavior Kinesiology, have found consistent links between self-sabotaging thoughts & negative speech and increased or decreased strength and/or our output from our muscles. Dr. John Diamond, the founder of Behavior Kinesiology noted that “muscles get stronger or weaker depending …

New Year. New You. No Thank You.

I’m not gonna do the whole “new year, new you” thing. Not even close.

I have been prescribed naps.

I have been prescribed naps. This mom, wife, business owner, personal trainer, athlete, overall energetic & excited human being has been prescribed “naps.” (among other things) Sounds pretty fucking fantastic, doesn’t it? Doctor’s orders: I have to sleep a FULL 8+ hours every night AND “nap” for up to 2 hours during the day. Who wouldn’t want this lifestyle?  Who wouldn’t want to just sleep? Well, let me tell you, not me, not you, not anyone. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, because in this case, all my body wants to literally & physically do IS sleep. After a little over 1 month …

Live From Within –

The moment had arrived. It was 13 challenging and character building weeks after I officially and suddenly decided to compete in my 1st figure competition. There I stood, pumped up, “glam”ed up and “bling”ed out, in line with some of the most amazing woman I had ever had the pleasure of sharing time and space with. The line was shortening as each brilliant woman stepped on stage to show the audience and judges what their personal commitment had created. For some this was a bucket list check off, for some this was a way of life. For me it was …

Confessions of a “CouldaBeen”

It was the Olympic Trials. I was prepared, physically. I was experiencing the best season of my life and found myself edging closer to my longed for 200Ft. throw in competition and making the USA Olympic Track & Field Team (just typing it, gives me butterflies). I was 27 years old and I thought of this moment since I started throwing discus at age 15. Ranked 5th in the USA and 32nd in the world, I stepped into the stadium in Sacramento, California. Physically, I was ready to go, ready to accomplish, and just like my discus, ready to soar. …

Puzzles

Puzzles. I used to always do them as a child, especially with my grandma. She was the queen of puzzles. I would sit alongside of her for hours in her house in Queens, NY with 1,000 pieces of “whoa” laid out before us on a cutting board the size of a stovetop.  As we would devote our focus and patiently search for the right pieces, we would eventually get into a groove and exceptionally beautiful pictures of landscapes, homes, horses, kittens, cities, etc. would start to emerge. Once we were in that groove, we just couldn’t stop. We were dialed in. We looked forward …
