In the past couple of months I have had to talk to a woman on occasion at a large company. She was to assist me in resolving my problem. I ended up resolving two issues with her. What brought me back to her specifically was her persona. Her phone mannerisms, her energy and the tone of her voice, which spoke with such sincerity. Oh her voice, wow! The energy, confidence and beauty it carries! I could not help but become attracted to her even though I had never seen her face. As......

One of my clients continually asks me if I like certain types of movies, be it action, comedy, romance or any other genre that is depicted in motion pictures. I have mentioned on several occasions that I like many kinds, and although today, for some strange reason, I have come to the conclusion that each one (in almost all cases) is a love story. Not all are about lovers however, some are about animals and friends. One might say that there is a love story that goes on within you. Your brain......

How is it that emotion can shift so quickly. Life is going well and your perception of it is great…and then, BAM! The brain is out of whack. At this time of year, and for many, at all times of year, being overwhelmed can wreak havoc on how you feel. Tension increases, stress levels rise and the “feel good” attitude has temporarily vanished. And when you’re down, it gets harder to exercise, or even muster up the motivation to go. The brain then loses its much needed “high” that comes with exercising......

And if you add up the many small,”I’ll make up for it tomorrow’s” you become complacent on a certain shape. Take for example a broken heart. Shortly after it has been notified of its loss, it begins to repair itself, or it thinks that it is repairing itself when......

I am in need of some weight loss as the muffins and donuts I have consumed, have caused my stomach to change shape 🙁 . In a previous blog I spoke of removing wheat from the diet and how I’d discuss it and how it affects weight loss. In the meantime, I decided to try it. Yesterday for breakfast I had an organic shake (no supplements, I used egg white for the protein portion) and a sweet potato, which was delicious. I then began training and had little time to eat. I......

I was at Chapter’s looking all the weight loss books and what seems to be the trend in that area, when a girl began lurking behind me. She was about 5’8 with a little fat on her stomach (perfectly natural) and had a look of confusion on her face. I said “Tough choice hey” as she let out a smile that was not intended to charm, but rather to humour me. “Is this your Christmas shopping”. I asked? “No, it’s for me”. She was distant and guarded with little interest in talking.......

Yes, if the goal is a short term nutritional adjustment (say for a wedding or a vacation). We all, at some point, want to feel our best. And for many that means weight loss and a sculpted body. Although for me, it means a strong heart and a *youthful feel. As a constant observer of the human body, I marvel at its beauty and it capabilities as well as its willingness to adapt after been treated so poorly (both emotionally and physically). So, you have gained weight, and need to lose some......
