I should warn you… I’m feeling a little sassy today. What follows may be a tiny bit of a smack-down. ;) I say it with love, though. Truly. Sometimes the most loving thing we can do is call someone on their sh*t, right? And here’s the sh*t I keep hearing from smart, beautiful, sassy, strong […]

The biggest excuse smart women make for not being healthy

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 […]

5 exercise apps to keep you strong at any age

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).

14 common questions about living a vibrant and healthy life

I get this question a lot: “What’s ONE thing I can do to be healthier/lose weight/have more energy?”. We all want a quick fix – a simple way to “make it all better.” Most health professionals would tell you that there’s not one, magical thing. And they’d be right… sort of. There IS one thing […]

A friend of mine recently shared an ad campaign from Organic Valley (the organic food company who makes yogurt, milk, butter, eggs and snacks). The campaign is called “Organic Balance: Real Morning Report.” And it’s all about what “real” women have time for in the morning – as compared to the perfectly coiffed, well-rested, and glowing […]

What real women do in the morning

Someone recently asked me “What do you collect?”. “Nothing,” I said. My dinner companion – a Seattle tech entrepreneur and gadget guru – buys every gadget as soon as it hits the market (sometimes before). He was unsatisfied with my answer. “No. Really,” he said.
