#7 When Health is a Family Affair

It felt appropriate to share this on Mother’s Day! Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and to my grandma and to all the women who have taught me how to be a mom! Pass it on!
“10 Stories of Strong Living” will be released on Amazon on June 6, 2017. This is from my original draft for the book from “Wake Up! Your Life is Now”

Beyond Personal Training

The Energy Lab is a judgement-free zone, where caring abounds! What we do is not a job, it is our calling. We shine in the game of caring, because to us, it is not a game, it is simply the result of our passion to change the world! One person at a time. To let someone know that we believe in them to the point that they believe in themselves. Thanks to my mentor and coach, Todd Durkin, for showing to the world what caring looks like in the world of personal training and to NBC Strong for focusing on how STRONG people are capable of being when being strong is their only choice AND when they have someone who believes in them!

This required surgery and a permanent screw to hold the pieces together. It left me unable to go to work, drive or exercise. My orthopedic surgeon, when questioned by me about running again, stated that I “may be able to run 2-3 miles at a time at the most”. I was active (running, group exercise) before my injury but mostly it was for vanity reasons or ‘because it was good for me’. Stuck on the couch and housebound (dependent on others if I needed to leave for appointments or for sanity reasons) …

Dear God, Thank You…My Story

20 years in the making. My transformation story… 1995-2015. Most people have 30-day stories, 6-month, and one-year stories.  I had a few nudges that let me know it was time to share my story.  Looking back at where to begin, it turns out, I have been living my transformation for the last 20 years.  It is a journey, a lifetime process to which there is no end.  There has never been a quick fix.  I am on this journey every day and it is not easy, but it is necessary.
