In our most recent family trip to New Jersey, my wonderful sister-in-law prepared a dish for me of apple salad.  It was so satisfying and refreshing that I've since been making it regularly, although tweaked slightly.  I started using apple cider vinegar in lieu of Bal...

I get very excited when I get a new client who happens to have young children at home.  The idea that the kids, through osmosis, will get to see real-world, healthy choices in action fills me with glee, and hope.  As a parent, you are the decision maker, the one who br...

When it comes to personality, I've always prided myself on having a glass-half-full mentality.  This has gone a long way in picking me up off of difficult and trying times.  And in those moments when I'd stumbled and perhaps fallen on my face, my positive outlook nudge...

One of my Yoga teachers told us a story of a woman who one day finds herself in conversation with her body.  She says to her body, "I want to be your friend".  After a long sigh, her body responds, "I've been waiting for this my whole life!"  The first time I heard tha...

I don't usually do this but since I, myself, needed a reminder of what truly is important, I felt the need to share again.  Wishing you and your loved ones your hearts' desire...

No sooner than we let out a huge exhale after a frenzied Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Y...

Why is it that when we craft goals, we almost always aim BIG?  When we say we're going to lose weight, we immediately utter some number that is to be the final goal.  "I wanna lose SO AND SO pounds!"  Why don't we ever say, "Well this week I plan to lose a pound?"  Bet...

One of the things that keep me coming back to class week after week is that these ladies make it so much fun, it doesn't feel like work at all!  Thank you, ladies, for your devotion toward achieving a healthier lifestyle, and for your trust in me.
