Are You Potty Trained?

My daughter is potty training… This week we started potty training my daughter Kenna. Do you know how I found out about it? Kenna came running into the studio wearing nothing but I think, My Little Pony “big kid underwear” and proudly displaying them to me :-). She gave me fist bumps, high-fives, and then she then started doing jumping jacks : ). Why, I have no clue? Needless, to say she was super excited and super proud that she was now going to using the big potty, like big kids. And an added bonus was, she didn't have to wear diapers, she...

This last weekend I kind of ate a lot…like Axel my son lol.

This is a confession of Kellen Lake recovering binge eater, also personal trainer :-). So, this last weekend I had french toast, with syrup, and no, not the sugar free syrup, the full sugar syrup with artificial butter flavoring. Yes, terrible choice by me. Feel free to judge and condemn me :-). I also later had ice cream cake, two servings of it, it was delicious. It was the same recipe that my mom used to make when I was a kid. There's a layer of homemade fudge, a layer of cookies and cream ice cream, and then a layer of crunched...

Do you treat yourself like poop?

Are you a Jerk?! When you talk to yourself are you a judgmental jerk? When you stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself what do say? How about when you try on clothes, are you supercritical? In short, how do YOU speak to yourself? Are you a judgmental bully or a caring loving BFF? I am willing to bet that most of you reading this are far meaner and critical to yourself then you would ever dare to be to anyone else...

Did you know Daylight Savings Time Can Help You Lose Weight?

I Hate Daylight Savings Time…Does That Sound Like You Too? As many of you know, or at least I hope most of you know :-), this Sunday we change our clocks because of daylight savings time. Most everyone in the United States will move their clocks forward one hour, which results in more Daylight at the end of each and every day. If you are like most people, this spring forward tradition comes with a touch of dread and agony. it basically means we get one less hour of sleep :-(. However, you can take advantage of this time change and use...

I looked so good a few years ago…

The other day I got a text from a client. It was a picture of what she looked like 2 years ago. In the picture she was thin and smiling proudly. In the text she stated that she wanted to look just like she looked in that picture. I get texts and listen to stories like this often. People often talk about how they looked in high school or a few year ago when they were thinner. The thing is back in the “Good Ole Days” 9 times outta 10 their environment and mindset were different. If your environment is wrong, if your...

70 lbs down…Congrats Jana!

Today I would like to celebrate Jana : )! Jana has slowly, but surely been losing weight. To date she has lost 70 lbs : ). Has it been easy? Jana would say, “No.” but she would also say it is worth it and the process is simple. What makes Jana special, what is Jana’s secret to success? She decided to take control of her own health, she realized that nobody was going to do it for her and that she had to do it for her. Jana wanted to be the best version of herself and as such she realized she...

No one needs to plan for a wedding…what a joke…

Said no one ever : ). Okay, so maybe one or two people might have said it.  I remember  when I met the love of my life Beth, in South Korea. In the course of about six or seven months we were engaged and planning a wedding and by we, I really mean her and her mom. I never realized how much planning it took to get ready for a wedding. Plus, it didn't help any that we were literally on the other side of the world in a different time zone, it was like an 8-hour difference, maybe more. We...

Banning Electronics Past 8 PM…who can do it?

No ELECTRONICS PAST 8 PM This weeks challenge is a dosy, one a dug up from the pits of hell. I can already hear you screaming in terror and torment. Why would I want you to experience this torment? In short, the lights on most devices - computer, TV, phone, etc - messes with your body’s cortisol production making it difficult to sleep. Cortisol is know as the “stress” hormone and its purpose is to get us jacked and ready to run or fight….NOT to go to sleep. This in turn negatively affects your melatonin a hormone that is supposed to help...

Proof in Action = Results

No one gets results by merely saying what they should or even knowing what they should do. Results come when you take action and apply what you now. Your results or lack there of are evidence of how well you are applying what you know you should be doing. Case in point. My kids Axel and Kenna My kids love their Gramma.  Currently my parents live in the basement. They just moved into the area and a looking for a house. In the meantime, my kids know that two of their favorite people are only a 5 second trip down the stairs....

Are you trying to lose weight and get fit for the wrong reason?

Are you trying to lose weight and get fit to make someone else happy? Do NOT fall into that trap. You will only become disappointed and hurt : (. Most of us want and desire the approval and acceptance of others. I know I do at times. I bet a lot of us have fallen into this trap. Plus, ;et's be honest, deep down we all want to be accepted and liked and we want to hear that we are accepted and liked by others. But we also know that, that desire can be an unhealthy one. To often I see people...
