Acknowledging that a mess was made of a situation = good.  Not acknowledging that something needs to be done about it = bad.  Wrestler translation: you may get in deep for a takedown, but if you don't finish and finish quickly, it is worth nothing.  Life translation = implentation and follow-up is key to success.

I always love the start of school, and not just because my kids go back to school now and life returns to some semblence of normal.  (What exactly is "normal" anyway?!)  But just like the new year, its the opportunity to start again.  A clean slate.  A new notebook without a single page written upon.  The possibilities of what the year will unfold.

I am NOT the best writer.  In fact, thank goodness for blogging so I have a place to practice at improving for the past few years.  But when my first daughter began school two years ago, I wanted to send her off when positive thoughts and loving words of wisdom so I would write the occasional lunch box note "Have a great day!"  and "We love you!" with little pictures of stick figure smiley faces and sun beams.

Sarah's Fitness Journey
My very first half marathon is in October, it's happening... I already paid for it! I've been following a training plan for my running, and have been doing pretty well. I've built up to 10 miles for my long runs. The shorter runs have been mainly on the treadmill due to the August heat, but that heat wave broke and the weather has been much more conducive to running outside. I will be making sure to keep the hills in my planning so once a week I go visit my parent's house to "borrow" their hills (my current location is pretty flat...

Juggling a busy schedule that consists of 40-60 hours in the office, home, life, kid, and animal responsibilities (if you have them) is enough to deter anybody from squeezing in gym time/workout time. However, that does not mean that you are doomed from being healthy.

Feeding the baby, teaching responsibility, and blogging.  Listening to a webinar while exercising.  Going to bed earlier to increase energy level for tmrw while focusing on what's important, decreasing seratonin and cortisol levels, regenerating muscles, increasing fat burn, and decreasing calorie consumption by avoiding late night snacking.  Time saving tip:  fill up water bottle with the sprayer instead of the faucet decreases fill time by half!!  Add 15 seconds to your day.  Ha!  When trying to fit exercise into your routine try integrating it into

The best way to get results with a client is to create a completely transparent nonjudgemental relationship.  One way to do this is to have a dounut or two every few months to communicate your humanity, empathy, and not so out of touch grasp on reality.  We all live with what I call real life obstacles but they are all things that we can overcome if we are gut wrenchingly honest with ourselves about what we want and are capable of.  Just look at Demi Moore in G.I Jane.  One-arm push-ups = very nice, passing all the other tests despite being ganged up on by all the men =&

This month's theme is Edify July because when we help others we help ourselves. To start the month off, we had someone volunteer and make journals for all of us. I am titling mine The Cheat Journal and only recording the blunders. Monday Day 1- Victory. Only whoops was not enough water at a mere 60oz. Day 2- cravings are still pretty much non-existent as a result of the Usana 5-day Reset program recently completed and the fact that I promised to journal all cheats. So, confession today is I accidentally ate a rice Krispy treat. Sorry ladies. Parting words: eat well and eat often.
