Tools and Promises

See Video version We’ve been talking about the tools we have at hand and considering why, perhaps, we “forget” to use them.  When we get really clear and really honest about our goals, then we can also get clear about whether or not we want to do the work to reach them.  What does it … Read more

Forgetful Tools

See the video version Last week, we were talking about getting a bit caught out when we realize we’re not using the tools we already have at hand.  Did you rediscover a tool or two?  Was it a pleasant discovery?  Or did you quietly put it back and try to avoid thinking about it?  Oh, … Read more

Tools at Hand

See video here. Like many of you, I’ve had a few cravings of late.  No bonus points for guessing why, right?  So what do I do?  I’m paying attention to my heart – what is it that I truly need — rather than stuffing down the feeling and following it with that food chaser.  Feel … Read more

Six-Week Accountability: Learning to be Free

Video Version Here I’ve been there.  You KNOW what to do – it’s just doing it, right?  And in this time of social distancing, it can be a lot harder to manage our nutrition.  It’s a perfect storm of things that drive us to food:  Stress with work – or without work, family issues, trying … Read more

Emotional Eating Amidst Social Distancing

See the video version Yes, we’re in a weird spot, and eating for emotional reasons is way too easy a solution for “getting through” this time of social distancing—even if it doesn’t really work. Odd, isn’t it?  We didn’t even use that term at the beginning of March, and now we hear it hourly. You … Read more

March 18, 2020

See the Video Version Interesting:  On March 18, 1995, I woke up at 3 a.m. with a virus.  Yippee.  I had an important event that afternoon.  NO ONE else could do my part, so I had to get it together and start hydrating.   Mind, that was before we thought about coughing into our elbows or … Read more

The Dryer Ate My Sock

See the video here: https://youtu.be/0jSdVCCfS9U My dryer ate my sock.  Just one.  I looked everywhere:  in and around the dryer, with my husband’s socks, in my stack, in the laundry hamper – wonder if the dog took off with it?  No.  There was no sign of it.  I thought through the steps:  From my foot … Read more

Your Best

See the video: https://youtu.be/DGn5uN9I-9Q Who are you when you are at your best? Is that a hard question for you?  Either because you stay more connected with your flaws or you’re not inclined to speak too well of yourself out of concern for what others might think? Here’s the thing:  The answer is essential for … Read more

Baggage: The Shame Guilt Beat Yourself Up Tango

See the video version here. Anyone else do this tango? Immediately berate and beat up on myself. I felt such shame – this was going to be my year, and I’d blown it yet again.  I’m a reasonably intelligent human being.  I can manage all kinds of tasks and challenges.  I can stay with a … Read more

Your Baggage: What weighs on you?

See the video If you clean out your suitcase at the end of every trip, you’re way ahead of me.  I take out the main stuff, but then there are bits of paper and “gimmes” that never seem to escape.  If it doesn’t come out after its first trip, it may be there forever.  There’s … Read more
