When Bad Injuries Happen To Good People

As a personal trainer I continuously tout the powers of warming up before exercise, cooling down properly, and stretching after every workout. Do I do these things? Sadly not nearly enough. So, it was inevitable that I would eventually get injured. And guess what? I did. So now here I am staring down a marathon in four short weeks with an injured hammy and kicking myself for not following my own advice. So let's talk injury--There are a few factors…

This Little Light Of Mine…

I paid someone a compliment today and her first response was to scrunch her nose and negate it. What? Well, not completely a surprise. There was a time when receiving a compliment was almost painful for me. I felt that I couldn't receive positive feedback without feeling like there was something negative right around the corner. I would wildly start batting away at the words like they were a wasp trying to sting me. I would question the givers motive…

It’s About Damn Time

Are you one of those people who are chronically 10 minutes late to everything you do? Do you say things like, "well, it is just so hard to get kids out the door", or "man traffic was a nightmare"? And when you arrive you are frantic and your mind is elsewhere. Guess what, I have two kids and there is always traffic. Those are not valid excuses. And now we all feel frantic. Thanks for setting the tone for us…

Warning–Reading This May Cause Death

Is what you are doing right now intentional? Is it worth your time to be doing it? Is what I have to say going to change your life, help you reach your goals, or make you a better person? If not then shut me up and move on to something that will. See, time is the only commodity that you cannot buy. You cannot get more of it. No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you…

Eat Me, I’m Delicious

We are what we eat. That being said, sometimes I think I must be made up of wine, cheese, and chocolate on any given day. Now listen, I am a huge supporter of fueling your body with good things. Things that are clean and from the earth. But Doritos happen y'all and I am unwilling to spend my life being afraid of what I want to eat. I would much rather enjoy things that I love in small doses than…

That’s Really None Of Your Business

Not everyone is going to like you. Oh snap. Let that sink in a bit. Say it again, out loud--Not everyone is going to like you. And you know what? That is okay. When you become the right person, you begin to have a certain uniqueness that is not for everyone. You begin to find your value amongst your tribe. And the people who don't "get" you stop mattering. When you start to find your true purpose, you no longer…
