5 Simplest weight loss tactics ever

Before I get into this embarrassing story, let me say upfront I’ve never been a techie person. I can upload videos on YouTube, write this blog on my site and perform enough basic functions to give the illusion I can handle modern life. That façade got blown out of the water this past week in…

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…

7 Weight loss tips from successful losers

At 57, some days I feel my memory is, well, a distant memory. The other day, for example, I was telling a friend about a famous artist who paints flowers that look like lady parts and could not for the life of me remember the artist’s name. I don’t know if my friend backed away…

7 High-protein, fat-burning meals on-the-go

As you may already know from my prior posts, I used to be a pastry chef. Worse yet, I owned a bakery. Yes, I admit I once worked for the Dark Side. Before you unsubscribe, stand outside my house with flaming pitchforks, and pelt me with cupcakes (not necessarily in that order), hear me out:…

5 Easy Tips to Eat Like a Trainer

Fitness is one of those rare occupations where your body becomes a marketing tool. Sure, trainers come in different shapes and sizes, but an overweight trainer who eats donuts for breakfast and can’t walk up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing won’t earn much respect—or clients.
