What’s Next? A Smaller Bikini?

Lately, I’ve been noticing ads for fitness programs that promise things like bikini bodies or getting ripped or losing 15 pounds–all in only two weeks. Those sound like goals, but my first thought is: What’s next? After you get that ripped, 15-pound lighter bikini body, what’s the next target—a smaller bikini? My second question is

What’s Stopping US?

Everyone wants to change their health and fitness habits. So why is taking the first step to hard? What stops us? Mostly our brains.  One problem is a law of physics: simple inertia.  Overcoming inertia takes energy.  But brains hoard energy.  They need a whack from an outside force like a mean dog bearing down on us,

Why Don’t We Take Better Care of Ourselves?

Seriously. We get our hair cut every 6 weeks, change the filters in our water systems every time the red light comes on, change the oil every 3000 miles, pressure wash our decks, rotate our tires.  We take better care of our stuff than of ourselves Why is it so difficult to get off the

Would it be OK if you never had to diet again?

You know how people are always on a diet?  And everyone knows that the minute they stop their diet, the weight will come right back—maybe with a couple extra pounds attached.  Most people would love to take weight off one time and keep it off forever. Well, you can. I’m here to tell you, STOP

Mobility Matters

Are you feeling your age?  When you get out of bed in the morning, are you stiff in some spots or maybe sore?  I often hear people say they “slept wrong.” Maybe it takes a few minutes to get things warmed up. Or you don’t feel completely balanced when you walk, like your parts aren’t

Stronger Muscles Make Stronger Brains

People who exercise probably know they are doing something good for their brain. After exercise, they feel good or happier or calmer. They think more clearly. Runners talk about the “runner’s high”.  Most of those brain results come from cardiovascular exercise—raising your heart rate and keeping it raised for some length of time. Working your

Don’t Watch Your Weight!

It’s that time of year again. “Lose weight now” messages from the $60 BILLION diet industry are everywhere! This diet industry thrives because none of their products works for more than a few weeks.  The entire industry is a wash, rinse, repeat–endlessly–profit center. But the biggest problem is that weight is the wrong thing to

What are Beliefs and Why Do We Care About Them?

Beliefs are not facts. They are only interpretations or value judgments you make about yourself, your experiences, and the world around you. They are the meaning we assign to things.

Should You De-Tox?

I‘ve been approached recently by people selling detox devices, wraps, pills, etc. They want me to sell them to my clients. For the most part, I’m not interested. Why not? 1. If someone truly needs detoxing, and some people do, they need professional diagnosis and care. That’s outside the scope of my practice, and to
