Fun Friday Can be More

Some people say that Friday is the least productive day of the week but me, I think not . . . always my busiest.

Although this week I’d have to say Wednesday was the day I felt I achieved the most . . . including finishing my Body Type Nutrition course exam.

What an accomplishment!

After learning BTN for a year and a half; reviewing information/research/videos; finishing was bitter sweet.

I enjoyed the courses so much and have learned more than I could have ever imagined regarding personal fitness training and nutrition.

Well I offer 3 different courses.  One of which will be perfect with your busy schedule.

I had 4 people graduate from the program last month; have 2 people starting Tuesday; and have 2 more spots to fill.

So how can I help you achieve your health & fitness goals?

Don’t wait . . . Join us.

You’ll be glad you did!

Don’t do this the hard way.  Let me share my trials, experiments, wild ride with you.

I went from 138 lbs, size 12 to 120 lbs, size 3/4.  Now, resting comfortably at 125 lbs, size 5/6 and feeling better than I ever have before.

I did this without killing myself at the gym 6/7 days a week.  And also reverse dieting my way to a calorie increase before decreasing to a sustainable maintainable weight while still allowing myself treats along the way.  Yay!

I finally have a good relationship with food . . . which I’ve never had before in my 50+ years of life.

I average 3 workouts per week at the most; have more energy; no headaches; no bloating; sleep better; am happy and healthy; and yes I said I still have my treats.

I’m not exaggerating in the least.  Simply go to my website and see before & after pictures.  Blog==>


I’ve been there; done that all the while:

5′ 1″
2 major surgeries
anxiety & depression
with peri-menopausal on top 🙂

Have you ever worked towards a goal, only to feel like you can never arrive at the “end point”?

Say you want to lose weight… and you do. But you keep thinking, “just 10 pounds more”.

Or you run a marathon… but can’t help wishing your PB was a little lower.

Or you get a raise… but you’ve already started gunning for the next promotion.

Sound familiar?

If you love progress, but feel like the end point— that perfect, happy place where you’ve finally ‘made it’—feels never-ending, you’re not alone.

Progress is like a horizon.

As we strive to improve, we run towards that horizon. Yet the horizon is an imaginary line: we can never reach it.If we forget that simple fact, it’s easy to get frustrated, tired, or burned out.

We never get there.

“There” is imaginary.

So how do you evaluate progress in a positive and proactive way?

First you need to look back.

See where you started. Notice the strides you’ve taken.

Use distance you’ve already traveled as your true measure of progress.

Then you need to look ahead. Think about where you’re going and plot out your next moves to ensure success.

First, fill out the questions about your progress.

Next, fill out the ones about what’s coming next.

And no matter where you net out, give yourself a pat on the back.

You deserve it!

Five questions to ask yourself
about your progress so far:


What have you put the most effort into during the last few weeks?

If you’ve been showing up, even just a little, it means you’ve been working on something. So jot that down and remind yourself of where your focus and energy has been.


What are you most proud of from the last few weeks?

Here we’re looking for daily wins. Like having a good breakfast on your busiest morning. Or making a smart eating decision in a tricky situation. You’ve done something to be proud of. Now’s the time to call it out.


How will you high-five yourself for the great work (in a healthy way)?

Think about how you’ll celebrate your progress, even if it’s just a small reward that supports your goals.


What more would you have liked to accomplish?

Everyone thinks this kinda stuff…coulda, woulda, shoulda.

Let’s get it down on paper, and then let it go. Write down what you wanted to get done… but didn’t.


What next thing can you do to move past what you think you ‘should’ have done, and keep you moving forward?

Think about the next step you can take, right now, to stay on track.
