The key to create permanent results

We’re moving in a couple of weeks. Our new house is only 12 miles from our current abode, but it may as well be across the continent. Packing is the same regardless. I am not freaking out only because it’s not happening today. Inside, I’m dreading the process with the force of a thousand suns.…

How to lose weight without really trying

I’m a big believer in signs. Not big, blaring neon signs, although they have their place. I’m referring to the signs your life send you that tell you when you’re on the right track. Or about to derail into a ditch. Fir example… I moved from Connecticut to California about 18 years ago. I was…

How to stay mentally sharp after 50

I have anxiety issues. If you’ve read any of my prior posts (see links below) I’m sure this comes as no surprise. I’ve talked about my battle with panic attacks, which began in my teens when I was rushed to the hospital after I passed out from hyperventilating. So that was fun. It didn’t end…

3 Non-negotiable keys to weight loss success (plus a bonus tip!)

I’ve never been a big negotiator, even at yard sales and swap meets where you’re expected to haggle. It makes me uncomfortable.  I’m sure this weirdness can be traced back to some childhood issue. It was probably over trying to negotiate with my mom to switch from Cheerios to Captain Crunch, debating the age I…

 7 fitness & weight loss hacks no one tells you

I am a huge fan of scary movies — not gratuitously violent films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – but more of the Jurassic Park, Cloverfield and, more recently, the Lights Out, variety (if you haven’t seen it, and can afford to skip a night of sleep, it’s a “must see”).    It makes no…

4 Mindset shifts that boost motivation

I got a shot in my knee last week as part of my ongoing battle with osteoarthritis pain. First, let me say upfront I am not someone who seeks out pain, which is why I don’t rollerblade, walk on hot coals, or wrestle alligators for a living. But needles don’t usually frighten me. Lately, though,…

#1 Tip for getting motivated (hint: you can do it NOW)

Some days I feel like an imposter. I write about motivation but am often the least motivated person on the planet. In fact, I have mastered the art of procrastination with the skill of Usain Bolt training for the Olympics.    Apparently, I need an impending, imminent deadline for anything to get done. But in my…

5 Ways to stay positive when you're surrounded by crazy

Bad days. We all have them. I had a string of them this week that revolved around my gym, my refuge.     The one place where I can usually leave my troubles behind has become a gossip mill and place of relationship battles so bad, it makes the current political debates look as peaceful as…

How to achieve any goal in four steps

Whenever I take a personality test, a couple of not-so-flattering attributes shine through the positive ones. For example, I am extremely stubborn and a bit upfront. On a test this typically shows up as “uncooperative” or “people often can’t believe you actually said that.” Negative nellies. I consider stubbornness one of my super powers. And,…
