30 Day Renewal - Day 3 and Three Pounds Down

May 12, 2021

Health is a personal journey.

Weight is also a very personal journey.

Some people might read this and roll their eyes thinking that I really have nothing to worry about in terms of my weight. While it is true that I am not obese, depending on your definition, it is also true that my weight has been a private struggle and this is the first time I’m discussing it publicly.

I’m more comfortable telling someone my age than I am my weight. Not that my age or weight comes up in a conversation regularly, but it’s an interesting fact nonetheless. I’m sure many people feel the same way.

Lately, I don’t like looking in the mirror. I don’t like the way my clothes look on me. I don’t like the way I FEEL when I wake up in the morning.

It wasn’t always that way.

I was skinny as a kid – tall and lanky – but I could eat! My grandmother always commented on the fact that she didn’t know where I put it all. She said I had a hollow leg!

30 Day Renewal

May 10, 2021

re·new·al | \ ri-ˈnü-əl

1. : the act or process of renewing
2. : the quality or state of being renewed

I've done my fair share of challenges, cleanses and detoxes... but this month I'm choosing to focus on my health for a much needed 30-day RENEWAL! 

Today Is Day One!

My word for 2021 is vitality but over the past couple of months my behavior has incorporated more stagnation and avoidance than it has energy and drive.

So I'm climbing back up into the saddle, and it's all starting with celery juice.

I know! I know! It sounds random and maybe a little gross - but stick with me here.


Did You Know Celery is a Herb?

 
The juice from this powerful and healing herb has MASSIVE anti-inflammatory properties and flushes out toxins from the body. Celery juice helps to purify your bloodstream… aid in the repair of ligaments and bones… prevent migraines… reduce blood pressure… clear up skin issues… reduce suffering from...

Travel, My Drug Of Choice

Oct 23, 2017

What does travel do for you?

For me traveling means adventure, new experiences, business meetings, visiting friends and family, vacations, education, growth, speaking other languages, food & wine, and so much more.

It’s my personal drug of choice.

When I travel on my own for business, it also means time to myself. I might be surrounded by hundreds of strangers at the airport, or on an airplane, but I feel like I have uninterrupted time…unless it’s to take my dinner order, or ask me what I’d like to drink.

I travel to Japan a number of times per year, and some of those trips are only for 2 – 3 days at a time. From NYC  to Tokyo is a 13-hour flight and I LOVE IT! During those hours I get to read, watch a movie or two, focus on work, listen to a podcast, or the current business book I’m enjoying on Audible, practice the languages I’m trying to learn, write in my journal, or get some sleep. On some trips it’s all of the above....

5 Tips for Being A Great Wife

Oct 09, 2017

Now don’t get all defensive and think this is about “a woman knowing her place” … I’m well aware we’ve come a long way since the 50s. This post is really about strategies that ensure you, as a wife and partner, are happy first. I’ve learned that without baseline joy and contentment, there’s no way a woman can bring herself fully into a relationship.

So, how to be a great wife? Here are 5 ways to know greatness…

#1. Dive into the Self-Care

That may seem counter intuitive when we're talking about relationships, but it's so important that a woman take some time for herself, or she won't be able to truly be present for her partner. Book yourself a massage, enjoy a bubble bath with a glass of wine (or champagne if you’re fancy), go to your local Zumba class - whatever works for you. Once you've showered yourself with a bit of love, you will be in a far better position to shower your loved ones with it as well.

#2. When your...
