An Ice Man. Fuel Oil and…GEvolution

Growing up, I had a best friend. His name was Leon Vitucci, my grandpa or my mom’s dad. Up until he passed away in 1989, that guy was the person I wanted to do everything with. The park, watering the lawn, sweeping the curb, play chess, get Carvel with, go to Dunkin Donuts with, cross any bridge in NYC with, say Latin prayers with…you get what I’m saying. Well, grandpa in the 1930’s was an Ice man. An immigrant from Bari, Italy, Leon would make he rounds in New York delivering ice for iceboxes, long before the electric domestic refrigerator …

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!

Train for the LOVE of your life

When we first set out on this journey of training for life, we can barely skip a rope, push-ups are our nemesis & daily aches and pains have us believing we are to be prisoners of it. Then we consciously choose to make the effort to stay with it. We choose to make our training a ritual habit. We begin to understand that training is no longer a societal “have to,” it’s an internal & authentic WANT TO. We learn that honoring our bodies exercise and challenged movements  makes us stronger at every layer. It’s beautiful. It’s an evolution   …

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, …

All or Nothing is BS

I want take a moment to invite EVERYONE to release the dreadful, uninspiring, overwhelming, bullying “all or nothing” expectation that you are hanging over yourselves like a heavy black cloud ready to swallow you in “I told you so’s.” All.Or.Nothing.Equals.Negative.Energy. All.Or.Nothing.Equals.Unsustainable. Let’s change this approach, this idea, this ridiculous badge. Each moment is anew.A chance to choose again.One day committed or surging in another area of your life DOESN’T mean you commitment to your health just “shit the bed.”It means in the next moment, you can choose again. Go ahead and give me an example of one time that All …

Don’t Take Compliments

I am not allowing myself to take compliments anymore. Most of the time, when I “take” compliments, I only KINDA take the one that are referring to a completion of some task, and then most of the time they still zip right over my head because for some deep, illogical reason, I don’t feel as if I am worthy of the compliment. It is a fleeting moment. There is no depth. When I am given compliments on who I am at the core, or the gifts I have been given as a human being, well then THOSE compliments go in …

Here’s Your Permission to take a BREAK!

I’ve learned it’s okay, soooo fukn okay to take breaks. I’m tired this afternoon. There, I said it. It’s almost 2pm and I’m tired. I’ve HAPPILY & PRODUCTIVELY worked 14 hour days back to back. Have work multiple “hats” during that time, and now I’m tired. So, I’m taking a break this afternoon. And it’s okay. I have no inner voice telling me, “I’d better do this or I will fall behind,” or “I’d better do that,” or “stop being lazy,” or any of that bullshit. I have set free judgement. I have set free this asinine idea that if …

Living in Abundance! GAINS BABY!!

Recognizing gains instead of losses. It’s this thing I’ve been doing that helps me to remain in an attitude of gratitude as opposed to FREEEEEEAKIN’ Out because I think that time is running out, our money is gonna run out, our whatever is gonna deplete. It’s that scarcity mindset. That fear that, if I do this, or say yes to this, then I won’t have enough of “something” when the NEXT cool thing or even day comes along. It’s been helping me make decisions not from that standpoint. I focus on what the gain is from my action, or non …
