Happy March!!!

Stop It Larry!

I will never forget the day… I was for once minding my own business and walking to my room to get some work done. Then all of a sudden I hear my 10-year-old daughter (9 at the time) yell out;

“Stop wrestling with your blanket like that.”

Something didn’t sit right with me, and I froze for a second, hoping my chihuahua wasn’t doing what I thought he was doing. I slowly walked down the hallway and peeked into the room, and there he was doing what I feared.

Humping his blanket! Read More

You Know If You Do It Right 40 Could Be The New 20

The other day I was talking to a good friend of mine, and we were discussing weight!

Yes, the topic that all women groan and complain about. You know we all have that ten pounds that we nag about. How I hate the deadly ten. I have to tell you that I laugh every time I ask a new client how much they want to lose. It never fails I either here 30 pounds or the magic 10.

I feel ya for sure!

Then they say I don’t want to look like I did when I was in my 20’s because I fear I’m too old to pull that look off.

When I hear that I immediately say,

“Ummm, excuse me…. please explain”! Read More

I Didn’t Ask To Be Black

The best thing that ever happened to me.

Coaching, Deception, and Love Stories…Oh My

I’ve been on this earth for 43 years. In those 43 years, I have completed elementary school, middle school, high school, military life, college, more college, and raised 3 kids. In that time I’ve come in contact with thousands and thousands of people.

However, in the last 5 years, I’ve come across the worse of, the worse. In my years of personal training, I found myself coaching 5 women that were “close friends” to each other. A 6th was on the way, but I put an end to almost all of the sessions before she had a chance to join my program. Read More
