My word for 2023 is ‘Now‘. Now is the time to make things happen. I’m 43. While I have plenty of life left, at the same time, I don’t have very much time left, and certainly none to keep doing more of the same things which are not working. Now is where 80% of myContinue reading “My Word For 2023”

You’re Not On Level 3.
Most people immediately jump to ‘limitation’ or ‘restriction’ when they think about diet or weight loss. However, limitation is actually ‘Level 3’; not Level 1 or 2. Level 1 is expansion & inclusion – the exact opposite of what most people think. Level 2 is about refinement, for example tweaking your macronutrient proportions Level 3Continue reading “You’re Not On Level 3.”
80% ‘No’ Up Front.
I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s much harder to say ‘no’ than it is to say ‘yes’. I’m really good at ‘yes’. I’m not so great at ‘no’. (I’m getting better as I get older, and practice it more.) I can say ‘yes’ to just about anything and make it sound reallyContinue reading “80% ‘No’ Up Front.”
In my house, we don’t always follow the same schedule. Often times, various family members need to eat at a different time than the others because they have somewhere to be. When that happens, we still do our best to make sure that at least one person sits with the other, so that no oneContinue reading “Eating Together”
One Complex Second
We have a tendency to believe that movements are largely ‘automatic reflexes’, but the reality is that most movements are not reflexes at all. Of course, if you touch a hot stove, or if I knock your funny bone, then you’ll react with a physical movement. But when you scratch your head, crack your neck,Continue reading “One Complex Second”
10 Daily Practices
Yesterday I made a list of 10 of my usual daily practices. (Coming up with a list of 10 ideas is one of them!) You can see that full list by clicking here. Or, I’ll insert it as an image below. Enjoy!
Combine Growth Practices
As I shared on Instagram this morning: You can combine the benefits of exercise and low-level, early morning sunlight. Both are free gifts for all. Just get outside. Merry Christmas!
Remember: You’re not doing anything ‘wrong’ this holiday season. You can’t stop the holidays from coming. Life always moves forward. You don’t have to beat yourself up about that. Yes, for some, the holidays are stressful. That’s OK. It’s not your fault. To the best of your ability, you’ll make it through. Depending on yourContinue reading “Holiday Feelings”
The Right Direction
A common feeling about eating and drinking various foods during the holidays is that you are ‘moving in the wrong direction’. However, this is not the case. It is an false statement, one which only focuses on a specific moment in time, and not the larger course of your health journey, which spans much longerContinue reading “The Right Direction”
The Case Of The 2nd Breakfast
Yesterday I had two full-sized breakfasts, back-to-back. I cooked the 2nd one less than 10 minutes after finishing the first one. For context, the first one was 3 eggs, roasted potatoes & broccoli. The second one was 3 more eggs, plus 3 almond-flour tortillas with dairy-free cheese. It wasn’t super late in the day; IContinue reading “The Case Of The 2nd Breakfast”
