Yes, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted.
You know I don’t love excuses, and I’m not going to offer one here.
But I’ve learned from not having written in some time, how much I really love writing this blog. It’s one of my favorite parts of the work I do.
The thing is, I recently I went back to a full-time day job.

It’s that time of year again.
Time to make those resolutions!
So, go ahead and make them. Focus on what you’re not doing right, or enough of, or too much of… so that you can resolve to fix that defective part of yourself in the coming year.
Now I have to ask: If you’ve been making these yearly resolutions, how are they working for you?

You may be overwhelmed right now with holiday gift shopping (online or braving the crowds at the mall), decorating your home, writing cards (if you’re a little old-fashioned like me), baking, attending parties, hosting parties, or just getting the house in order before the craziness hits.
Whatever you’re doing right NOW, in just a month or less things will be calm again and you’ll be able to focus on YOU again.
And that’s when my winter classes will be ready and waiting for you.
Boot Camp is a way to have fun while getting a great workout; Yoga will relax and strengthen your body and mind; Coaching will get you a focused 12-month plan and tailored support to feeling awesome in your body and life in time for the holidays in 2018; and our local Running Group is a way to get out there and hang with people who enjoy being active.
So, here’s the line-up:

A year ago, Cindy became a client and forever changed the way I see my role as a coach.
She lived close by and knew I was a fitness coach. And from my blog she also knew I was certified with Precision Nutrition (PN), which she was already familiar with.
Like most people that contact me for coaching, she wanted to lose weight.
But of course, there was more to it than just the weight. A lot more.

A few years ago I was listening to an interview with Pema Chödrön, author and Buddhist nun.
She was talking about paying attention to life because it’s always speaking to us.
She told a story of how she had been appointed director of a Buddhist center in Colorado.
Of course, she was honored to be chosen for such a position, but she wasn’t thrilled about it.

Since I was about 10, I’ve kept journals.
Not consistently, but sporadically over the years.
After 35 years, that periodic effort has added up to a whole lot of spiral bound note books, hard cover journals, old-fashioned diaries with a key, and pieces of mismatched loose leaf and bits of paper bound together in a folder.

Sitting is said to be the new smoking.
And I tend to agree.
The dangers of sitting are being increasingly studied and documented, so there’s science out there to prove what I’m about to say.

Spoiler alert: Food is not the enemy.
But do you feel like it is?
Does it feel like food is holding you hostage, forcing you to do things you didn’t want to do, teasing you, and making you into a liar.
Then I’ve got news for you.

On September 18th I’m launching a brand new 30-day challenge.
And guess what?
It’s not just about exercise this time.
This time I wanted to create a much more holistic challenge that would get you to dig a little deeper.
I wanted to create an opportunity for you to explore the roots of who you are not just physically, but in every wonderful way.

I don’t know about you, but everything gets a lot busier for me come September, which is great and not so great.
On the one side, I’m so enthusiastic at this time of year! I’m excited to start or re-start all kinds of classes, coaching opportunities, and various online projects.
But on the other side, my time becomes more limited, and it’s easy to fall into the “I’m too busy” excuse.
So, to keep on track this fall, I’m going to get accountable… in a big way. And here’s how…
