9 Ironic Tips to Help You Lose Weight

When it comes to toning up, most don’t think of the below. In fact, some may scoff at these tips. However, through my counseling and own personal work, I’ve found that these tips can make a big difference.     1.) Ditch the diet soda Yes, it may say “diet,” but that doesn’t mean it’s waistline friendly. More and more studies are coming out indicating an association between diet drinks, larger waists, and metabolic syndrome. It’s not clear exactly as to why. Perhaps they make us crave sweeter, more calorie-dense ...

How to Lose Weight Without Weighing Yourself

  How to lose weight without weighing yourself … I hope this title got you thinking. Because you don’t lose weight by weighing yourself. You firm up by making healthier choices, consistently. We get so wrapped up by that silly little number that we forget this basic fact. Weight loss (the real lasting kind) is about changing your mind first, then your actions, and showing up for yourself on a daily basis – it’s not about getting on the scale.   Let the Scale Go If weighing yourself throws you ...

7 Ways to Listen to Your Internal Voice

Your thoughts, feelings, self-talk, and gut feelings all make up your internal voice—that little guiding voice inside of you. Your internal voice is like the gauge for your feel good factor. When you follow it, you feel better. When you ignore it, you feel lost, empty, and a little off track. Whether you’re making a big business decision, embarking upon a new chapter in your life, entering a new relationship, or deciding whether to partake in a certain social situation this weekend, your internal voice is the one you need ...

10 Ways to Bust Out of a Rut

The other day, the man in my life told me I haven’t been the same over the past month. Not as happy. Not as cheery.  Not as “me.” So of course, being who I am and doing what I do, I started some serious thinking on what has changed. I also bought a gigantic new vision board that I’m working on, the  book The Happiness Project (so far, it’s amazing), and started doing the worksheet that I have clients fill out before we work together. Yes, I take my own ...

How to Destress in Seconds

I’m sharing with you a vital tool in my life. I really only share this with clients. But, since it’s helped so many with binge eating and emotional eating (not to mention simple everyday stress), I had to let you in on it. I learned this trick in the 6th grade from a therapist who came into my class to talk about destressing techniques-ha! And ever since that sixth grade day, this tool has transformed my reaction to stress–thank goodness! You can do this anywhere at anytime and no one ...

5 Questions to Increase Your Happiness

When was the last time you sat down and thought about what you REALLY wanted out of life? Today, we’re answering hundreds of emails a day, texting rapidly, returning calls, attending meetings, making appointments, picking up and dropping off kids, making meals, grocery shopping … and the list could go on and on. At the end of the day, how often do you find yourself saying, “If only there were more hours in a day?” Likely, quite a bit. It doesn’t have to be like this. You can slow down. ...

My Valentine

Dear Valentine, You brighten my days, enlighten my evenings, and dazzle my afternoons. You lift my spirits, recharge my batteries, and make me feel as if I can take on the world. You make me feel strong, sexy, and empowered. If I’m ever having a “I don’t-feel-so-hot” day, I magically feel as if I’m the only girl in the world, after visiting you. You’ve helped me appreciate my body more and grow to appreciate my strength—mentally, spiritually, and physically. You’ve pushed me to be better, propel forward, forget the past ...

6 Ways to Beat Stress

Stress. Somehow the word alone creates tension. Yet not all stress is bad. Keep in mind that stress is a normal physiological reaction that allows us to meet the demands of our daily grind—pushing us to accomplish tasks and increase productivity. Think about all those deadlines, meetings, and presentations that you have going on. Would you be able to get them done just as fast without that extra added push of stress? For most of us, the answer is no.   Is Your Stress Healthy? However, when stress no longer ...
