Are You Seeking a Truce with Your Body?


Are You Seeking a Truce with Your Body?

So you made changes, maybe even tried a medication and went back for your follow up health check... And still, your numbers aren't where you thought they'd be. 

Maybe your body is still throwing up warning flags, letting you know that chronic condition is hovering on the horizon. 

If your health numbers are frustrating you to the point where you feel like giving up, you're not alone!  

Many of my clients are right there with you on that feeling when they come to me.  

Cholesterol numbers, BMI's, blood glucose- it can all be so confusing.  It's no wonder your blood pressure skyrockets when you walk into the doctor's office, especially when it's just to find you didn't achieve the numbers you were shooting for, and here you go again. 

The first thing to know is that some numbers are sensitive enough to be thrown off by that one party you went two days ago. The apparent lack of movement doesn't necessarily mean the changes you made meant nothing. Take your triglycerides, for example, you can find out more about the actions that can throw those numbers off - you can check out this Web MD slideshow,  All About Triglycerides, to find out a bit more.  

The good news here is that your health numbers are actually easier to work with than you think!

 Many of my clients were struggling to reach those target goal numbers because they're trying to 'add in' a treatment to their daily life for a health flag.   When the tweaks fail to produce the results, frustration mounts and folks go to war with their health- resorting to extreme guerrilla tactics.....maybe repetitive fastings, detox cleansing, denials of all sorts as a way of punishing their body into compliance. 

I have to tell you, in the end, your body will win that war.

'So what is a winning strategy' you ask?   Step 1 is understanding what 'HEALTHY' means to you and your life overall.  Those numbers today aren't the whole picture.   

Family history, the current health numbers, your lifestyle past, and present-  all these factors come together to create the wellness you are experiencing today. 

A great Coach (like me :-)   can help you use what YOU know about YOU to envision and create a lifestyle that supports your health and wellness goals for your today and all your tomorrows.

the Future of ....... the Future?


the Future of ....... the Future?

Greetings most Honorable Earthling!

:-) Remember back in the day as a kid when you spent summers watching that TV show.. you know, the one that showed you what your future would look like 20 or 30 years in the future?

How's it stacking up for you?

We haven't gotten the flying cars and the hoverboards haven't been perfected yet, but most everyone has access to Cortana or Siri.  Amazon has the Echo and we are reaching a stage of untethered wirelessness that increases the freedom to be anywhere- and the onus of having to attend to everything while we're busy being free!

Chipped futures are on the rise.  We've had the medic alerts on elderly prone to wandering, and chips in the pets... in case of wandering!  At least as a society, we do want our loved ones back when they wander off!  But now I'm wondering... 

I was moving toward the point of the Vending Machine company that now offers their employees the option to get chipped- allowing the swipe of a hand to clock in, unlock area doors, buy snacks from the machines, and countless other actions.  Hmm, and back in the day, we thought the beeper was annoying!

Yet when new tech opportunities knock, we open the door on an attractive figure.  

No, I'm not alluding to what Siri might look like, but attractive as in time-saving, ease, a way to get through Task A to get onto Task B, hopefully before Task C, D & F starts pounding on the door.  

What's that?  I missed 'E'?  Nah, 'E' is never a Task, it's an EMERGENCY.  Those pesky 'E's are never scheduled but pop up and pop in, last minute late, all to disrupt your day with maximum Efficiency!

So yes, when you're offered a fee free ease, one takes it.

And I took it!

Not at first no, I've never been too easy that way.  When Google offered a free website, I put it off for ages.  Because you know, I've done that already.  I invested time, tears, virtual sweat into this here website.  My first try but we've all got to start somewhere, and like any offspring, we tend to see the beauty of what it can grow to be!

But in a moment of weakness, or maybe it was the cherries that gave me a rosy feeling, I dove into the offer.  And true to everything else, Google made it easy!  Not so many options to customize but it's a quick start and easy drive for short distances.

What sort of Wellness Coach isn't open to GROWTH?

So with that thought in mind, I'd love for you to give it a go, let me know how it feels. You can find it here at,  I'll be moving forward with the branding updates this summer, and I'd love to get feedback on what feels good on the eyes and mind.   I'm not expecting it to replace this site but who knows for sure what the future will look like?
