Get on the Honor Roll with a Solid C+

Last year about this time I was having dinner with a friend who was excited to share with me that she’d recently found consistency in her workout efforts. Though her schedule had been challenging, she hadn’t let a few days off turn into a complete derailment like in times passed. She’d also tried out a few new workout DVDs, and instead of becoming frustrated as she was accustomed to feeling when she couldn’t keep the pace of the instructor, she decided to change her focus. “Cheryl” instead concentrated on just finishing the workouts, allowing herself breaks whenever she needed....

The Kapsule Kitchen – Take the Question of “What’s for Dinner” Off the Plate

The Kapsule Kitchen – Take the Question of “What’s for Dinner” Off the Plate

It’s 6pm. The children are politely sitting around the table thanking you for the wonderful vegetables your husband has just prepared for dinner. They politely request a second helping while your family finishes up a riveting conversation about everyone’s best experiences of the day. After Junior clears the dishes and you finish your glass of Merlot, you all go outside to enjoy the 65 degree weather on a leisurely stroll. And then you wake up. Seriously. More likely it’s 6pm, and you haven’t even thought about what’s for dinner. You’re starving. Both kids are in need of a taxi to...

What the Health?

What the Health?

Have you ever been fish-slapped in the face? Me neither, but I just had an experience that I imagine would feel like that. It grabbed my attention. It kind of embarrassed me. It grossed me out. I won’t likely forget the encounter anytime soon. And though it was meant to perhaps teach me a valuable lesson, I wish I could have learned it without the stench and the sting. “What the health” you ask? Exactly. As I’m writing this blog, I just finished watching the investigative documentary, “What the Health?”,(can also view on Netflix) which very convincingly illustrates the health and...

But, will it help me lose weight?

But, will it help me lose weight?

I recently had a new client ask me my thoughts on yoga. Before I could get through my sunny salutation, she interrupted my flow and double-down-dogged, “well, it’s not going to help me lose weight, right?” First of all, there’s more than one way to skin a cat and cow. Yoga can vary widely in its form, intensity, and calorie burn. But the bottom line is, yes, yoga can help you lose weight. However, what was more concerning to me was that in my client’s mind there was no point in doing a particular physical activity if it wasn’t going to burn a Buddha load of calories. The benefits...

But I don’t want to “bulk up…….”

But I don’t want to “bulk up…….”

This post is for all of you luvs out there who have a fear of “bulking up”. You’ve been told before that women don’t actually have the hormonal capacity for this phenomenon to occur. You understand the scientific objection here, yet as a personal test subject, you’ve experienced the results nonetheless. The truth is that some women do gain muscle easier than others. We’re all packaged in a wide array of shapes and sizes. Just look at the differences between Olympic marathon runners, compared to 100 meter sprinters, compared to swimmers, compared to gymnasts. All of these athletes...

Did you eat the cappelletti?

Did you eat the cappelletti?

Over the years I’ve been fortunate to experience some really beautiful meals with some really beautiful company. These experiences have been as vast and varied as enjoying a backyard barbecue with neighbors to sharing a special date night out with a man I don’t dine alone with nearly enough. However, this past weekend I was blessed with an eating encounter that was, is, and will always be especially endeared. I shared a meal with a dear friend at the local Kansas City restaurant, Bluestem. We savored two hours worth of two life’s stories, six life’s loves, twenty life’s laughs, five...
