All About The Booty!

Uncategorized Mar 29, 2019

I love working out in a group.  I go to this great fitness class 4-5 times a week and always enjoy the community of women (and a few men) who are there.  We always work really hard and sweat a ton.  I noticed the other day, when I was at the back of the class and we were all holding a functional crescent lunge, trying to catch our breath after that cardio blast while your legs are on fire…. It is all about the booty!  I mean really.  At the back of the class I had a great view of everyone’s derrières.  Lots of shapes and sizes and fabulous for each individual—pushing them forward.

Now many people have come to be for functional movement and flexibility training sessions and they all know I’m all about the booty.  But I think life is all about the booty too.  You want your feet in front of you and your booty behind you.  It is the powerhouse of the body and is meant to propel you forward on your path...

Is Fear Holding You Back?

Uncategorized Oct 20, 2018
It is Halloween time and there are some pretty gnarly billboards and comercials out right now.  They always make me feel queasy and anxious and, yes, even a bit afraid.  I just don't like the scary things.  Give me a cute fairy and superman at the door trick-or-treating any day, but you can keep the scary movies and terror billboards.  Ick.  These fears are just external fears however.  I know in my mind that they aren't real things and that I'm a grown-ass lady who can choose what to expose herself to.  I think the more devastating and paralyzing are the internal fears. 
 
Have you ever been asked to do something and just knee-jerk reaction you said no.  For example, maybe someone asked you to take on a new challenging client? Or to give a talk?  Or accept an award that would get you more recognition and responsibility?  Or asked you to take on a new responsibility at home?  Did you say no because you were nervous and...

We Are All In This Together

Uncategorized Sep 28, 2018
Last weekend, my husband and I and our two dogs struck out on a slightly ill conceived adventure with a couple of friends.  We were planning on doing a 40 mile hike in 3 days, backpacking and camping along the way.  Sounds easy right.  Well my husband and I didn't thoroughly investigate the hike and didn't really do any pre-planning or prepping.  We often do 10 miles of hiking on a Saturday and the dogs always do well, so we thought this would be no problem.  Well we didn't take into consideration that both he and I would be carrying packs of 45 and 35 pounds, respectively, and that the actual hike was well, hard.  Usually we hike in well manicured Forest Park here in Portland, OR.  This hike was dangerous due to washouts and treacherous because of rock scrambling and cliff drop offs.  Not to mention the creek and river crossings. After about 5 miles into this adventure I got some pretty nasty blisters and my feet swelled up so that any...

What is the goal?

Uncategorized Sep 03, 2018

What is the goal of this life?  Depending on what radio station, TV show or on-line ad is blasting you right now, it could be to buy any number of things or maybe take a vacation or maybe start a new career.  But really, our soul is meant to be One with the Universe.  Whether you call that God, or Spirit, or Energy, each and every one of us wants to connect.  We want to connect to each other and most especially connect with that great creative force that turns this earth, nourishes all creatures and is infinite love.  Being separate from this force and from this love is why I think we are all suffering so.  It is time to be goal-focused and figure out how each and every one of us can connect to that creative force.

What do you do that makes you feel creative?  Is it cooking, singing, gardening, painting, writing?  Or something more?  Tap into that.  That is first step in being connected.  In being One with that Spirit and...
