Restless Legs need to run.

On a recent 3-hour flight back to New York, I experienced sensations from a dreaded condition that I haven’t felt in YEARS:  Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). After a 4-day hiatus from difficult workouts and eating mom’s homemade treats, sitting for hours on end didn’t help.  I was reminded of my past life at the office: sitting for 40 hours…

Self employed? Read on.

In the last two years, the ups and downs of the economy have forced many people to reinvent themselves and become self-employed.  It can be very liberating on one hand, but if you’re not careful, it’s very easy to put on weight.  The highs and lows of business are very stressful and many business owners put themselves on the back burner.
My advice?  …

Eat, k?

Over the course of my career, I have worked with my fair share of people struggling with what I’ll call ‘disordered eating habits’.  As a body-obsessed nation, many people work towards a perfect body or at least think about it. Knowing when my client isn’t like everyone else and is possibly suffering from an eating disorder has its challenges-as…

What a treat!

So much of what I write about these days is about holding back, practicing restraint and staying motivated.  But every now and then I do indulge, and when I do, I plan for it.  By consistently eating a balanced diet, exercising and getting proper rest, I earn the occasional free-for-all and enjoy every last bite!  I don’t worry about gaining an ounce…

Hanging on for dear life

In the gym, have you ever noticed the dude on the treadmill with the incline crazy-jacked all the way up to the max?  He’s white-knuckling the top of the machine for dear life!  I can’t help but do a ‘gawker slowdown’ as I pass by…all I wanna do is pull the damn electrical cord out of the wall!  What’s he doing?!  Certainly…

Willpower!

Think of the last time you overindulged.  How did it make you feel?  Lethargic & drained?  Nauseous?  Guilty?
Every time I have taken WAY more than my fair share, I’m angry at myself and regret every bite of that second helping.  I have a hard time sleeping and for the next few days my stomach just isn’t right.   For today’s Thanksgiving…

My Season Is Party-Proof!

With Thanksgiving behind and the Christmas/New Year’s holidays ahead, ’tis the season for parties galore!  I have at least one party planned every week, a fun girls’ weekend trip and a few shows to attend before January.  I also have a fitness photo-shoot coming up and need to look (and feel) amazing!!
How on earth will I do it all and still…

A vicious cycle

I have amazing clients…they inspire me every day. Even though I’ve been doing this for years, I learn so many things each week from everyone in my life.
I’d like to share a story about a client we’ll call “Penny”. She has been trying to lose weight ever since we met 5 years ago and we have seriously tried everything. We worked…
