Healthy food wants you to cheat on it. Here’s why.

I have a fun experiment for you. :) Is today a “cheat day”? I’m guessing not if it’s not a weekend, since cheat days usually happen on weekends – but you know what I mean, right? Any of us who grew up in a dieting culture probably know about cheat days. But if you don’t, here’s what I […]

Not reaching your goals? Change your perspective.

I’ve noticed something with my clients lately (and – if I’m being honest – for years): Their ability to reach their goals has less to do with the nuts and bolts of our work (i.e., food, exercise, sleep, all that good stuff)… … and more to do with how they APPROACH the work of feeling […]

The surprising food that stops sugar cravings

I don’t know about you, but nighttime is my danger zone when it comes to eating stuff I shouldn’t. It’s like I’m possessed by a chocolate, cookie, carb and sugar-loving demon/Cookie Monster – when all day, I was just fine!

5 exercise apps to keep you strong at any age

I like food (if you hadn’t noticed). I recently took a “field trip” to West Seattle to check out a French bakery that I’d heard is amazing. (It is.) When I was in Hawaii, I ate enough poke to feed the entire population of the Big Island. I easily consumed POUNDS of cherries during Washington’s summer […]

14 common questions about living a vibrant and healthy life

I’m curious about nearly everything that contributes to living a healthier, vibrant, and mindful life (which is a good thing, since it’s my job to help you live that kind of life). I also have an opinion about (nearly) all of it. No surprise there, especially to anyone who knows me personally. ;) Because of […]

3 areas of your health that are easy to ignore (and how to recharge them)

When my work and travel schedule get amped up, I’m reminded of how important it is to have tools for keeping it all together. And by “all together” I mean feeling like I’m firing on all cylinders, even though stress and busy-ness happens. Because when I’m NOT feeling that way, everything suffers. Work. Life. Relationships.

Setting goals and why you should question your beliefs

Don’t you love when you see “March or April” on your calendar? It gives me a burst of optimistic energy – even though I know there are many cold weeks left between now and Summer. (At least in Seattle, where spring weather is indistinguishable from winter.) Days get longer. Temperatures get (a bit) warmer. Challenges seem […]
