14 ways to succeed at losing weight
Okay…today is THE DAY – it’s a brand new year, a fresh start, a place to begin again. And while it’s likely you have some semblance of a plan to slip back into those skinny jeans in 2012, I’ll venture to guess that it’s not your waistline, but your PLAN, that needs a major overhauling. In 12 years of coaching and training thousands of men and women, I can tell you that most weight loss endeavors (especially the New Year's kind) fail, not from a lack of self-discipline, but rather a lack of “pre-paving. “ Consider how easy it is, when...

Maybe because I didn't have much of either when I was young and then they each blossomed. Illness in my late 20's was transformational for me.  My gut response to devastating disease shaped how I responded to events from that time on.  From that dark place -- in which I saw parts of me I didn't know existed --   I was able to create intention.  It was an easy...

A recent study published in the European Heart Journal cited 8.5 hours as the average time most working Americans sit each day!  Over that period of time, we start to slouch. This affects the low back because we are sitting in the reverse of the natural curve of our back. It affects our neck because we are encouraging the dreaded dowager's hump.  Most back pain issues come from ligament and muscle strain or weakness.  Sitting properly at a desk or when we are driving, stretching to break up prolonged sitting in one position and strengthening of core and back muscles...
