Falling Hurts – You Don’t Have to Do It

Posted On Jun 21 2017 by

This blew me away – young people slip and stumble as often as older people do.  But… But they don’t fall as often.  Because they have enough strength to catch themselves, they don’t hit the ground.  Surely, you remember that. You can imagine the outcome of older folks falling and hitting the pavement or down a flight of stairs.  The consequences for older people can be horrible and fatal. Please, develop the strength and balance to catch yourself. These days, you can find coaching suggestions all over the internet, in many physical therapy offices, yoga studios, Taiji classes, and senior …


Eating Less and Exercising More Doesn’t Work

Posted On Apr 25 2017 by

You know the recipe, to lose weight just eat less and exercise more.  It just makes sense.  But if you’ve tried to lose weight, most likely this hasn’t worked for you.  And it doesn’t work for anyone you know.  Quit it. First, exercise benefits you in multiple ways – especially strength training so keep doing it or consider adding it at some time. Second, it’s how you eat and what you eat that makes the difference.  As a person who has been dealing with my weight, fat, for my entire life, I notice I’m an addict.  Not a food addict, …


Am I A Compulsive Overeater? No. Am I A Sugar Addict? Yep.

Posted On Mar 26 2017 by

I’m in week nine of not eating any sugar or it’s henchmen – flour.  Turns out I’m addicted to these processed foods.  In the last nine weeks, I haven’t overeaten.  I haven’t been hung-over from eating too much sugar.  I feel good – energized and clear. But the big one, I haven’t felt any shame from being out of control with food.  Not eating sugar or flour, means no craving and no out of control  brain chemistry. What got me started was the Bright Line Eating program.  The name comes from the idea of drawing a bright line around certain …


Take the QUIZ: Are you addicted to food?

Posted On Feb 3 2017 by

I am a recovering food addict.  The addiction has caused endless problems.  Shame is at the top of the list. Susan’s solutions are working for me.  They might work for you and for others you love.  Pass all the information from Susan on to them if they seem open or ready, otherwise it can be shaming.  Be kind…   Back in 2013, Forbes revealed scientific research that showed Oreos were more addictive than cocaine or heroin. Yep, it may be easier to kick a cocaine addiction than it is to let go of those double-stuffed sugar-bombs. But it doesn’t stop …


The “2-Minute Trick” that triples your odds of eating healthy…

Posted On Feb 2 2017 by

Here’s another goody from Susan: Please pass these on to those that have trouble managing their foods or losing weight/fat. Nearly everyone is trying to eat healthier or to lose weight, and let’s be honest—we could probably all stand to be more mindful about the food we put in our mouths. Research shows that our environment can trigger us to either succeed or fail in nearly all of our endeavors. For example, if you have something you need to remember to bring with you when you leave the house tomorrow—let’s say it’s your dry cleaning—you might leave it by the …


The 5 TOOLS for Weight Loss Success

Posted On Feb 1 2017 by

  This comes from my friends at Bright Line Eating – I like their stuff and am passing it on to you.  It’s good stuff and I trust them and the material. Nobody goes on a major expedition without the right tools. If you’re going to climb Mount Everest, the first thing you have to find out is what kind of gear to bring. If you want to become a golfer, you need to get the right equipment. Similarly, losing weight is a major endeavor, and you need the right tools. It’s a little-known fact, but almost no one succeeds …

Self-Care Secret Revealed

Most of our health and happiness lies in our hands.  Self-care strategies let us take matters into those hands. As a therapist, I recommend homework to clients that enables them to take care of themselves between sessions. I, too, want great self care tools to take care of myself.

Winter Is Coming – Get a Neck Gator

Posted On Nov 3 2016 by

Every spring, I urge people to go outside and exercise.  As a holistic therapist, that’s my job.  Next, I tell them, even while spring explodes, October is coming.  Winter is coming.  Get your mind right, do not be lulled into lassitude by the lovely weather, prepare. The acupuncturists and my Taiji teacher have this aphorism – “Keep the vile and pernicious winds from your neck.” If I can keep my neck warm, I’m a happy guy.  I think I could go out in the cold rain in a tee shirt if my neck was warm. Welcome to the neck gaiter.  …

When I travel, I get fatter.  I visited the beloved Lesley in Santa Fe.  She cooks beautifully.  I eat.  I gain 5 pounds that trip. I visit Sasha, our youngest daughter at Washington State University, we eat in good restaurants.  I gain another 5 pounds. Do more of what works and less of what doesn’t.
