How to Use Gratitude to Get Fit… Faster!

Did you gain the covid-10? Or is it the covid-15 or -20? Who wants to exercise or eat right when we have all this other stress hanging over our heads, right?  Before the pandemic, I bet you working out and your food choices were pretty darn good, if you say so yourself, but in the last few months, all that has changed. Now, either the gym isn’t open or you don’t feel safe going back. …

Over 40? Try These 3 Tips for Successful Weight Loss

I founded my business, It Fits Me, to help women lose weight in order to live their best lives. My philosophy is that we should keep it as simple as possible and that stems from my belief that truly good health depends on the power of three: mind, body, and soul.  It’s simple really. Living healthier and happier depends on what you consume, what you do, and what you think. It’s energy cubed. Today, I …

Be Your Own BFF! You’re amazing!

Listen to your inner voice. Are you your own best friend or worst enemy?  Working in the gym I come in contact with a lot of people and most of the time, I can tell if someone is their own best friend or their worst enemy.  Have you ever thought about how we talk to ourselves, and how we can get in our own way when it comes to making changes and improving our lives? …

Happiness for Your Health!

“10% is related to our environment? That leaves a whopping 40% that is actually up to us and what we decide.”

That’s enough for me to decide my happiness. How about you?

Resolutions or Renewed Focus

I have been asked a couple of times but my New Year’s resolution is. I don’t think that I actually believe in New Year’s resolutions because what they imply. Expectations! I hate expectations and when you can lower them,  you can’t be let down. There is only what it is. I much prefer facing the sun and focusing on the things that I CAN do rather than berating myself for all the things that I …

Everything you want is on the other side of hard work.

We are living in a society of shortcuts, hacks and quick fixes. All I have to do is look at the ads that fill our newsfeeds and commercials on the television, to see that. It appears that everyone is looking for a shortcut in order to be able to have their goals met and it’s no wonder because all we’re seeing is highlight reels of others success. Everyone wants the quick and easy fix, that …

You Have Two Lists. Vent or Change

You Have Two Lists. It’s OK. Forgive Yourself. It’s Normal.   Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to CHANGE a habit or a routine or to CREATE a new habit or routine? How many times have you complained, whined, made jokes, or beat yourself up over something and wished it was different somehow?   Vent or Change Without realizing it, you have two lists going on right now.

Disappointment can be a gift… Really? I read this great post recently and I thought I would share my spin on it with you. “The Gift of disappointment is to bring us into alignment with reality.” Have you ever thought about disappointment? It sounds like it’s a bad thing, right? What if we were to think of it as a gift instead!   With any expectation, comes the opportunity for disappointment and how you choose …

Not Everyone Works With a Personal Trainer for the Same Reasons

The reasons to seek help from a personal trainer are different for everyone. How I train people will depend on why they’re coming to me. Each person’s goals are different and the things that THEY need to work on to reach their goals is going to be different from the next person. Not everyone needs to lose weight. Sometimes people need to gain muscle and strength. Last week I told you the story of Hala. …

You set your limits. How high are they going to be?

I learned some fabulous things over my holidays and I want to share them with you. The Climb On the last day of my vacation, before I was going to fly home, I climbed a mountain. It was 2300 meters high and it was a ‘scramble’ for about 90% of it. If you’re not familiar with scramble climbing, it means to climb or move quickly using one’s hands and feet, as down a rough incline. …

The Journey of Personal Growth

In this world of email and social media, we’ve become accustomed to receiving things instantaneously, instead of having to wait. Sometimes, when we have to wait for something, it can make us anxious and impatient.
