I'm Not Pregnant, Just Bloated!

Do you ever bloat so much that you look 8 months pregnant?

Well, sometimes I do, and I have for the last 25 years. YIKES!

If you saw me on the street, you probably wouldn’t notice my bloated belly because it is usually stuffed inside my tight jeans or spandex undies. However, if you happened to be present with me as I unzipped my jeans at the end of one of those days, you would crack up and say “whoa - she wasn’t kidding!”

What is the One Thing?

What does it take to improve your life?  It can seem unattainable, impossible, and downright discouraging when we try to tackle our biggest challenges and weaknesses.  However, when we become focused, amazing things can happen.

CERTAINTY IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD

Mass shootings. Natural disasters. Death. Accidents. Terrorism. Political unrest. Heath. Safety. Money. Relationships….

There is so much intensity in the air right now.

Intensity that rips our hearts open with fear.

How can we cope?

Feeling Connected in a Disconnected World

The truth of the matter is, we live in a crazy world where we can be connected through email, voicemail, Facebook messenger, texting, Instagram, Snapchat, and so many more ways. However, we still feel more disconnected than ever.

EVERY SINGLE PAINFUL UGLY FEELING

I had made myself vulnerable.

I had shared my stories of pain, not-good-enoughness while growing up, and how for most of my life I had distracted myself from feeling my feelings.

Now I felt naked.

I needed to hide from the intense feelings...

So, I crafted my escape plan.

Have You Thought About Taking a Break From Sugar?

As a Healthy Living Strategist, I help many people eliminate or reduce the sugar in their diets to help them move from feeling like, “I can’t have it” to “I just don’t want it”. I have learned that different approaches work for different people. Some people like to take a break from sugar and get quick results from my “Ditch Your Sugar Itch” program, but others prefer a slow and steady approach.

A TRAVEL TRICK FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP!

Let's face it, we all know what we are supposed to eat healthy, but actually doing it is another story...especially while on vacation.

The bread, the wine, the cheese, and the gelato.... they all call out to us. Eat me! Eat me! No, Eat me!

Too Impatient to Meditate? You've Come to the Right Place!

Are you a busy, stressed person who doesn't have the time or patience to meditate?

I get it. I used to be that way too.

When starting to meditate, it doesn’t matter if you meditate for a minute or for an hour; just that you take the time to commit in whatever way you can to this beautiful practice.

She knows what to do but can't seem to do it!

Dear Lisa,
I try to do everything right, but life keeps getting in the way. I seem always to run out of time for the things I most want to be doing (exercising, buying and preparing healthy foods, etc.). What can I do about this?   - Knows What to do But Can't Seem to Do It!

Is it OK to be Happy While You Are Sad?

Is it OK to be Happy While You Are Sad?

I went to a lecture last weekend called "Letting In While Letting Go". The topic was referring to grief and that while we are letting go of our loss, there is also now more room to let something in that may bring us comfort and joy. 

The speaker talked about the Both/And concept:

I can be both sad about ________ and happy about ________.

Fighting a Food Obsession? It's Time to Ditch your Inner B*tch

Admit it women: we have a thing about being too much or not enough.

We fall into the trap of telling ourselves we’re too pudgy or too emotional; we’re not smart enough or motivated enough. We are really good at stressing ourselves out! And the more stressed we feel, the more we turn to food for comfort.
