Today is my Wife and I's EclipseCloseAversary! There is a solar eclipse peaks at 2:30 pm ish, we are set to close on our new house at 4 pm, and it is our 8 year wedding anniversary.  I told Sarah I'm getting her a house for her anniversary present!  (she's getting me one too!) If you are curious I'll tell you the quick version of the last 8 years. When we got married we were $98,000 in debt, mostly student loans.  We paid

Food Pantry Diet - 1 week of "healthy" food pantry eating

By Admin | on June. 10, 2017

We've done a food drive at our studio every year for the past several years.  We team this up with a workout with the food.  Wegman's reuseable grocery bags full of cans make excellent Dumbbells.  Who said exercise equipment has to be expensive? When doing the food drive I had been thinking about the people who have no choice but to live on this type of food.  Cans and boxes of food that take years to "go bad" if they ever

If you keep making that face it’s going to stick that way

By Admin | on June. 10, 2017

We’ve all heard this old saying, often said by Mom or Grandma. Usually said when some kid is making a nasty face. Well there is some truth to that! Just nobody holds their face in that position long enough.   BUT…   We hold our bodies in the same positions fairly often. Usually slouched over, shoulders up, and chin sticking out. Often done for 8 hours a day if you have a desk job, on the couch in the evening and even more common

How do you find your ideal weight?

By Admin | on May. 4, 2017

I get asked this sometimes and it’s a tricky answer.  Someone just asked me this one the other day and I wanted to do a good job of explaining this so I decided to answer it publicly so more people can benefit from the answer I give.  When we are trying to lose weight most people have a target. How do you know you have the right target? I’ll say that I think most people set the dream target too

3 ways you are TRASHING yourself and our planet!

By Admin | on April. 22, 2017

The same habits, behaviors, and thought processes that cause us to have extra fat on our bodies and balances on our credit cards are also what causes us to damage the earth around us.  Philip Mills author of “Fighting Globesity”, makes a great connection between personal care and health and environmental care and health.  What makes us unhealthy is also what makes the earth unhealthy and vice versa!   3 things to think about on this Earth Day: 1.)

4 F-words and Christianity

By Admin | on April. 16, 2017

{Warning: if you are not a Christian some of this may seem weird or confusing how I am comparing Dieting to Our relationship with God. If you want to talk to me about it or hear about why I believe this way, please know I am available.}   Before you go there, it’s not a bad word repeated 4 times. Although dieting can feel that way at times. I’m talking about 4 words that I think need to be a part of

By Admin | on April. 16, 2017

How to Get Motivated...

By Admin | on April. 12, 2017

I gave a seminar last month and I sometimes ask people what they want to get out of this talk. One of the comments was: How to get motivated? There are many things in our life that we would like to improve on. Most of these improvements require change and effort, and because of this they sit sometimes for years not done. So the question is how do we actually get started? I am going to give you a couple ideas and

Are you stuck planning to plan?

By Admin | on April. 6, 2017

I was talking to different clients at the beginning of this month. I was asking them, “What are you working on this month?” and “How can I help you?” Many people were saying they were wanting to eat better or lose weight. If I asked them how they intended to do this they usually didn’t have much to say. They were figuring they would just try more. It reminded me that: We are not held back as much by our effort
