Great Night in Ann Arbor!

Pacific Rim Ann Arbor

It was fun spending some time in Ann Arbor this weekend through the eyes of a friend who as visiting for the first time. Friday night we started out late, but found that the activity level downtown was still high.

There was an eclectic group of people in a kaleidoscope of shapes, colors and sizes gearing up for some late night frivolity. We decided to eat Japanese that night and found the restaurant to be completely empty except for one other couple. That was kind of nice as we had a very quiet spot to get a chance to chat. The dinner was wonderful with 3 starters and two dinners to split- we ate like there wasn't another meal in sight for weeks.

Afterward we walked down to my favorite spot La Dolce Vita. We had an after dinner drink and some espresso. The bartender entertained us with funny stories about the late seventies hairstyles and polyester clothing. We had the best time just talking, laughing, and enjoying some great conversation.

Really, it’s the simple things that are the best.


Tomorrow Is Close By With My Dreams Intact

>> Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Man, it just occurred to me that my dreams might not become a reality....thank goodness that was a nightmare and I woke up to find my dreams still intact. Lets be real, we probably all have had that nightmare and some of us aren't even sleeping.

Actually, I was there for my entire life. I never entertained the thought that I could even have any dreams, let alone achieve them. It's like being let out of a padded cell without windows and you really see the sun for the first time.The warmth and the brightness are almost more than you can bare.

When you actually dare to hope that you might manifest things or people in your life that you want, it becomes seriously cool. My action plan today,.... dare to hope and never stop.
Tomorrow is close by with my dreams still intact.

Woke up in the most amazing mood and just laid in bed for a few minutes while thanking God for all that I have. I am feeling so much better these days, mentally and physically.

Now I have the energy to do a grueling "Boot Camp" exercise 3 mornings a week, plus walking and running tons of errands. My body is becoming strong and very lean. I am amazed at all that I have accomplished in this past year since I have taken my health to such a high level and I it's only the beginning of a continual journey.

One of my favorite things to do is to connect with someone that is ready to make a commitment to take their health up several notches, either by releasing weight, building lean muscle mass or just want to have great energy. When they actively seek my coaching, it is a perfect circle.



Graced by a Kiss

>> Sunday, May 17, 2009

It's as if I was graced by a kiss, squarely on the head by God. Giving me pure joy in doing my hearts desire. Having the chance to be a part of changing someone's life for the better, is like pure magic for my soul. I am so thankful each and every time.


Poor thighs- they just wanted to be appreciated!

>> Monday, May 11, 2009

Thunder thighs is feeding- I could not believe what I was hearing as I rushed to get the phone. My brother was at it again, teasing me relentlessly!

This was the start of my preoccupation with my upper thighs and all that could be done to thin them out- from a blow up suit that you exercised in, to taping the fat from the back so from the front my thighs looked rather svelte.. I didn’t take into consideration what I looked like from the back...

The mail order blow up exercise pants where real fun.. Once those where blown up with a tire pump and you were captured inside of this plastic space suit,. That’s when you were supposed to do 100 leg lifts and butt kicks. Well no one told me that I wouldn't be able to get out of the suit without assistance..

I can remember trying to walk up the stairs with my space suit- each step was like a little mountain.. When I finally reached my destination, the kitchen, I grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the darn thing. I almost went circling around the room like a deflated balloon, my dog was barking at me like I was an invader from Mars.. .

Then my dear mother who’s idea of real exercise was hitting a crochet ball, decided to get serious, she ordered this belt vibrator machine that just shook the **** out of you. Of course it didn’t remove one inch of fat. When you got off of that machine your brain was like scrambled eggs. A beautiful red rash would develop where the belt had worn off fragments of your skin………. Those are my most treasured memories of my first exercising experience!

Until next time ...


Marley and Me

>> Sunday, May 3, 2009

As I sat watching “Marley and Me” last night while munching some popcorn. I was thinking-here we go again another slap stick dog-tearing up the house movie. Little did I know that unfolding before me was a movie of substance and depth.

I cried as the ending neared, which isn’t surprising as anything about animals can touch me deeply. I guess I was more surprised at how it made me think of my own life in terms of the unfolding of life, my family’s life and how the little gifts can become the biggest gifts of all.

Something as simplistic as watching this “dog” movie turned my mind to deeper thoughts, unveiling layers I’ve covered up with the every day life doing the same old-same old.

You think you have it all sewn up; only to realize your life can take a swift turn and lead you down a road that you never knew existed. This new world appears, with new sights, new textures and new experiences waiting to be experienced by you. You can glide through the shade barely seeing what is out there and then hit a patch of brilliant sunlight discovering your eyes can hardly take in what you see.

Then you realize when your eyes do adjust this new world is perfect for you, even though there was never a plan to visit- let alone stay. When this turning point is put before you, you can either keep going into the unknown letting life discover each moment with you or you can turn back and be comfortable in your known life where everything seems safe.

Deep down we all know that nothing is completely safe. For me, I would choose the brilliant sun each moment that I can remember to do so. I would rather be heading into the unknown where dreams have the possibility of being realized, then to head back home and be comfortable with the bleached out world of the known.
