5 Essentials to Fit Living

Clutter affects your health.  There's a direct paralell between how you take care of your living space and how you take care of yourself.

What does your space say about you?  Doing these 5 things will make it much easier for your to become fit in every area of your life.   1.  Your home should support your "why" motivation.  Does your environment reflect what you say is most precious to you?  For instance, you want to cook healthy meals for yourself and your family.  But are the counters piled so high with stuff that you couldn't make a cup of tea much less a meal?  Organize to enjoy what really matters to you and your health.   2. Take baby steps.  Don't try to...

Courage - Just Do It!

So often we want to wait until we feel that things are perfect or "just right" but what we don't realize is that perfect doesn't exist whereas "just right" does.   Think of it like the overnight success that took 20 years. Just right comes from doing something and learning from flaws, mistakes or things that don't work as planned. Even better sometimes the greatest inspirations are found during this process.   So when I challenge you to just do it I mean just do it over, over, over and over again until you get it "just right."   I challenge you to just do it with the intention of serving and giving the absolute best that you have to offer at the time you give...

Slow Down and Get Fitter Faster

Getting healthy, eating clean, faster weight release, less stress. How do you transform your life from hellish to healthy?  In a word mindfulness, the most important tool in your life fitness bag. It's the most popular trend in fitness, nutrition and wellness, but it's so much more than the woo woo flavor of the month.  In our society, where much of our life is lived on autopilot, mindfulness is all about hitting the pause button and becoming fully present in the moment. The future doesn't exist, the past is gone.  The only reality we have is right now. So how does being mindful translate into wellness?  If you've been working out for awhile (or if you've ever worked out!) your body knows how to...

Creating I-Space

Are you in love with where you live and work? Part of Extreme Self-Care is recognizing that the space where you live (and that includes your office) is more than just a roof over your head. Beyond the point of functional is the experience of being supported by your environment (fed). I believe it's critical to make your space soul-nourishing.  It should fill you with joy, feed you energy and inspire your best work and thinking.  Where you live and work both need to reflect the things that are important to your heart.  Then you're free to express your creativity in an environment of peace and calm. When your space becomes cramped or cluttered you start to feel the weight begin to suffocate you.  Navigating...

Physical Intelligence - More Than the Sum of Your Parts

Whenever I do personal training work with a client, I pay particular attention to the way they carry their body. For many of us (myself included) you can see the how we compartmentalize our mind and body just by the way we hold ourselves.  Some of us tend toward the rounded shoulder slump. Others fold in on themselves with the "Eeyore" posture.  The mental attitude is almost always reflected in how the body moves. There's actual intelligent life below your neck if you choose to look for it.  And when you tap into inhabiting your body in a new way you find out surprising things.  For instance, have you ever tried a form of movement you thought was beyond you (like interpretive dance or martial arts) and discovered...

Is Life Sabotaging Your Health?

I've been studying the how and why of creating a healthy lifestyle for many years now and what I know for sure is that emotional fitness influences physical fitness in a huge way. I've noticed how emotion-life issues have the power to consistently undermine my clients' success.  What we're finding out (and more and research is emerging in this area) is that creating a healthy lifestyle is a holistic process.  Energy imbalances in ANY area of our life will affect how we feel, perform and think.  These obstacles can include things like food allergies, depression, hormone imbalances, ADD, thyroid problems and diseases like lupus and MS.  If you're unaware of how these profoundly affect you, you're...

We all scream for protein!

Muscle is lost with aging unless you do something about it. Logging slow miles and doing the same old repetitive cardio will actually contribute to you gradually losing muscle and make your metabolism even slower. By age 60 most people including endurance athletes, will have lost an average of 20 to 40% of their peak maximal strength across ALL MUSCLE GROUPS. There are 2 approaches to halting age related muscle loss.  First lift weights all year round.  Progressive resistance training is the best way to slow the gradual loss of muscle mass.  Second train your anaerobic system.  Many older athletes don't do anaerobic...

Movement Therapy

I'm happy and grateful I've got good health and energy but there are days (like today) when I'm tired, it's raining and I don't feel like working out. But I know that once I get myself moving I'll feel better and after I'm finished I'll be glad I did it.    I made a commitment in my 20's to fitness and it's a habit now as natural to me as brushing my teeth.  I'm not a competitive athlete.  I'm not a shark in the water, or a cycle-cross maniac or even a marathon runner.  I just like the feeling of movement.  Everybody's different, but I'm a believer in movement therapy.  Any movement is good movement (and some is really good!)  It's like...
