Soon approaching is one of my favorite months. It’s the love bug month! That’s what I call it anyway because it’s not only a love Holiday, but it’s my 26th wedding anniversary. Yahoooo! 🙂 So let us all celebrate once again, but this year lets do it smarter and healthier. That said…I’ve laid out some healthier options for you to try out.
Love is in the air. Can you smell it? I know I can. Believe it or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I look at it not just as a day to celebrate the love between people, but to really celebrate the love that you have for yourself, your physical health and your wellbeing.
With chocolate and candy in abundance, it is more important than ever to stay strong and committed to your health goals. I know it is a challenge, but I’m here to help you. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to help you get through Valentine’s Day and stay focused on a healthier you.
• Skip the chocolates this year. Instead, consider giving that special someone a gym membership, therapeutic massage, or one of my coaching, training or mentoring programs. If you’re on your own, give yourself that gift.
• Remember that no matter what time of year it may be, the foundation of happiness lies within yourself. Don’t get distracted by what the media says you need to be happy – find what makes you happy and focus on it.
• The right restaurant matters more than you know. A romantic dinner is a wonderful way to spend Valentine’s Day, but it’s even better when healthy eating options are available. Or take matters into your own hands and get into the kitchen yourself. There’s no better way to spread the love than with a homemade healthy meal.
• If you do indulge, don’t beat yourself up. Just do something fun and active to honor your body and burn those calories. This could be something as simple as walking around the neighborhood hand-in-hand or showing off your best moves at a dance club.
Valentine’s day is a great way to show someone you care. Making sure you’re still paying attention to good health and nutrition shows that you care even more. My three tips above are great starting points for just that. Happy Valentine’s Day! ￼

What is your plan this year to be your best self?
(Make it realistic so you can brag about it in the coming months)
Now that the new year is here, most of us will spend at least a few minutes reflecting on where we are and where we hope to be. Was your new year’s resolution to be happier or healthier? I’m not surprised. One of the most common new year’s resolutions IS to be healthier and happier. It’s a GREAT goal to work towards. It doesn’t have to be difficult either.
Here are some tips that I know work because I have personally used them. It can make it easier for you to capture that healthier, happier lifestyle and hold onto it for good!
Don’t dwell on the past. Don’t worry about the mistakes you’ve made before – learn from them and use them to find success this time. It can change your life.
Use the internet to build a nutritional plan database. There are plenty of great recipes and meal plans that are delicious and easier to follow than you think. You are also welcome to investigate some of my programs. If you need guidance on the best nutritional choices, I can help you make some that fit your lifestyle.
Avoid the fads – find what works for you.
Be realistic. One of the biggest challenges with finding happiness is that some people set goals that are too lofty to reach. Find realistic goals and focus on reaching them – you can always evolve goals as you reach them.
Like I said, a happier, healthier life isn’t as out of reach as you might think. The tips above are just starting points for moving towards a better mindset and a better you for this year – and beyond. GO FOR IT!! I know you can do it.

It’s easy for us to settle into a groove in our life only to find out that it has become more of a rut that we’re trapped in than a groove we’re enjoying. Breaking out of that rut is often a key focus for those as we begin the new year.
I’ve seen it so many times that it doesn’t surprise me anymore. I’ve found that several key steps can have a big impact on your success at giving yourself a fresh start. Some examples include:
Take up a new hobby. A new hobby can be a sport too, such as tennis, rowing or skating. The idea is to include something in your life that’s routinely active or something that keeps you in motion. Whether it’s one that you’ve always wanted to try or something out of the blue, trying a new hobby can help create a path to a fresh you.
Take classes. Local community colleges regularly have classes on everything from painting to electrical engineering. Look at some of the enrichment classes and consider learning something truly new to you.
Join clubs or local organizations that appeal to you. This could be a local yoga club, a dance club or a local movie club that watches a movie each week and meets up afterwards to discuss it. No matter what the path might be, try to find a group where you can include some activity and you can step out of your comfort zone with.
Speaking of which, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. That’s the key to breaking out of a rut – taking a step you wouldn’t normally take no matter if it is in your professional or personal life.
These tips are just starting points worth considering, but they can form the foundation of success when you’re ready to take your life to a different place.
Breaking out of that rut isn’t always easy, but it is something that you CAN do! So Dare to do it – Dare to be bold and this year you will be able to take your life, health and body to the next level!
