When you look at this picture, what do you see? I see clouds in the image of a magnificent horse who knows where she/he is headed and knows what they want.   It is a symbol to me of the power we all have in taking full commitment for ourselves and our lives. What if this moment is an urgent calling from your soul to choose more powerfully between who you are and who you are meant to be? An amazing practice I have been working with is taking full responsibility for my life and my choices. My mantra these days is “I am 100% committed...

The Surprisingly Powerful Motivator You’re Leaving Untapped

Carley is a guest blogger on myfitnesspal.com. “Its odd,” Samantha said, “but whenever I am nervous about an upcoming event where I know I have to be on and present, my focus goes straight to the size of my belly. Is my shirt too tight? Do I look fat? You would think instead I would be thinking, did I prepare enough on my presentation or will I have something interesting to say and talk about.” I nodded and listened. I hear this type of comment from clients and students a lot (male and female). Usually when I ask a client if she/he...

What Are You Hungry For?

Carley is a guest blogger on myfitnesspal.com. What does healthy eating look like? In the famous words of Michael Pollan, “Eat Food, Not too Much, Mostly Plants.” Knowing what to eat doesn’t need to be more complicated than that, right? So why in the US do we have a growing obesity epidemic? And why is the rate of Type 2 Diabetes continually rising? The answer is, we are not paying attention. We aren’t paying attention to when we feel hungry or full, how we feel during and after we eat certain foods (I feel really sluggish after I eat...

Holiday Consumption: Be Mindful

  Are you living the holidays like me? As soon as Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas songs start playing on the radio and I am bombarded with Black Friday emails of Sale!, Sale!, Sale!.

Lets pause here…..Breathe…. I want to share with you the cause and the solution to...

Stress Sabotaging Your Health Goals? Try This!

Carley is a guest blogger on myfitnesspal.com. Mindfulness is often referred to as a consciousness discipline. It is a way of training the mind, heart, and body to be fully present with life. Although often associated with meditation, mindfulness is much more than that. It is a way of being, a way of living. Mindfulness is about presence—being here, now, completely. The practice of mindfulness has great implications for our happiness, resilience to stress, and our health. Regardless of how hard we are working at the gym, or how planned out...

7 Ways NOT to Gain Weight This Holiday Season

Holidays are rife with emotional triggers and exhausting task lists. When we are stressed, many of us struggle to maintain healthy eating habits. Here are seven research-based practices that can help us not eat and drink too much during the holidays. 1.
