Wellness Planning · 20. October 2016
The previous weeks of this blog series have been all about planning. What do I want most? What will make the biggest impact on my health and well-being? With the hard decisions behind me, I am really enjoying the process of putting my ideas into action! For me, this is the fun part. I have signed up for piano classes (there's that creativity need surfacing again!) and resumed studying French. These things may sound more like work than play, but to me they offer refreshing and self-directed...

Some things come naturally and some do not. I am the type of person who gravitates towards logic, order and science because they make sense to me. I have cultivated many habits, some of which are helpful (exercising regularly and eating well), and some less desirable (like wanting to be good at everything).

I have decided to approach this process as I would with a coaching client, starting with clarifying what I want out of the experience. One of the first things I do with a new...

It's Autumn already! Red leaves and school buses have made their debut, and my family's Fall rituals have begun. Like many families, this season gets a little frantic with choosing, registering, and scheduling programs, figuring out school bus routes, work schedules, and calendars, cleaning and packing summer stuff, searching for cold-weather gear, buying whatever no longer fits ...BREATHE... Busy time? You got it!

Weight Wellness · 08. May 2016
Has something ever happened that guilted you into starting a weight loss regime? Perhaps you discovered that you had outgrown a favorite outfit; maybe you overheard a child making an insensitive comment. These events stick with us, forcing us to acknowledge that we are not where we want to be.
