When “stinkin’ thinking meets wisdom…”

The Monday after Thanksgiving, I felt like a fat failure. I’d not worked out in several days and had over indulged in turkey, dressing and a lot of other things. The “black cloud” of the panic to get my double work out in (punishing myself) asap was following me around. At the same time, I

Epic fail….boy did I ever miss my target!

  Eleven times!  Thus far this YEAR! That is the actual amount of times I went to the YMCA near my neighborhood.  My goal was 3 times a week starting in January. That makes me hundreds short of my goal. I knew it was bad, but I had no idea I was that far off.

Did your January just become mid February? Quit playing around with this stuff.

Decisions, Decisions! January is all about decisions. Goals, resolutions, and changes that bring desired results. While that is good, it can also be much like going on a diet. Without developing healthy eating habits, as a consistent way of life, weight and health management are just momentary good ideas. Such it is with goals. Most

Authenticity…How to share your story and why it matters!

The Realty of Reality TV Recently I attended a luncheon with a few hundred business people. The main attraction of the gathering was a speaker who stood at the podium to share her life story.
