Morning reminder

You’ve come a long way on your life’s journey.  Take a moment to be grateful for friends, family and random acts of kindness you’ve encountered so far this year. And to all my friends and those I’ve met while training, thank you.  You are the best!

Put down that cookie!

Any of you need a personal cookie-slapper in your life? You know, someone who appears whenever you are about to embark on journey of diet-sabatoging and slaps the “bad” food out of your hands or grabs your purse and runs away with it when you walk into Starbucks? Stood in line twice at the Coffee…
