What's in it for you?  A connection, some challenges, a few questions to encourage you to simply reflect about how you currently live your life versus how you want to live your life.  Feel free to share your thoughts with me;  I'd love to hear from you.  This is an invitation to focus on where you'd like to change and grow.  


1.  PERSONAL LIFE COACHING:   New Year's Resolutions

2.  FOOD FOR THOUGHT AND THOUGHTS ON FOOD OR WEIGHT:   Don't believe everything you hear!

3.  THOUGHTS FROM MY SWING:   A Piece of Perfect

1:  New Year's Resolutions  

So how's life?   We seldom give ourselves permission and time to think out the answer to that simple but oh-so-deep question.  

It's almost the end of summer.  Free-er spirits become students again, taking on challenges of a new year of elementary or high school, college or university.   Some embark on brand new programs and fresh destinations for their future.

So, I wonder why September can't mark new beginnings for us all.  And that's why I ask "how's life?" Perhaps this is the time to rethink your responsibilities, your freedom, your relationships.   Maybe this is the year to enroll in a special interest course in art or cooking or computers or any of the gazillion offerings at night schools, community centres and the like.  Maybe this is the opportunity to let something go.  

Is this YOUR time to be extra conscious of how you wish to spend your time and energy?

2:  Don't believe everything you hear!

One day in the bakery I overheard a conversation between a bakery staff person and a customer.   Here's how it went:
Customer:  I usually buy a mini-bagel but thought I'd try something different.   How's the calorie count of this tea biscuit compared to the mini-bagel?
Bakery staff person:  Tea biscuit is much lower because the bagel has yeast and anything with yeast is very high in calories and very fattening.
Customer:  Thank you - then I'll go with the tea biscuit.

My internal thought - That is so not true!!!!!  

When the staff person went away, I approached the customer and shared what I knew - namely that the yeast is not the villain and the size of the product is as vital as the nature of the beast!   The customer changed her purchase back since she wanted the less fattening alternative.

This story is not really about mini-bagels and tea biscuits but rather it's about the vast array of misinformation out there.   No-one craves to be a skeptic but our job as consumers is to question the information we're getting as well as its source/origin.   We've all heard that if it sounds too good to be true it likely is.   So I invite you to challenge and check out and google any information that you might wish to question.   And feel free to email me with issues that are food/exercise/weight loss related!   I'd be delighted to answer.

3:  A Piece of Perfect

A cottage weekend
On the dock
The stillness of early morning
Exquisite greenery
The peace of the lake
A hot fabulous cup of coffee
20 minutes of total bliss!

And the best part...  I brought home this extraordinary mental picture to pull out whenever I need it to momentarily pepper the hassles and challenges that do have their way of cropping up in real life.

I would love to hear about your piece of perfect.

Wishing you what you wish for yourself.
