CPM Sit Back, Relax, and Enjoy the Ride …

This week I have had the pleasure of being able to go to the lake and finish my second cookbook. This is the first time since we have opened our gym that I will take 10 days away. I am what my husband likes to call me a “freight train”. I like to go balls to the wall, never sitting, no quiet, always go go go.

This is the first time I am going to be completely by myself with no set schedule, no classes or clients to train, and not hands on in my business day to day and even […] Read more

Change Your Word(s) = Failure

Change Your Word(s) = Failure

Today is another episode of “Change Your Word(s) Series…

The way we think and speak are vital to how we feel and perform. Words are very very powerful. They can be used to your advantage or they can hold you back and stress you out!

We all have emotional attachments to words. Some people view a certain word different than others. Sometimes when I am in a conversion with someone and I hear them say a certain word, I ask them to define what they mean by it. Not because I don’t know what it means, but because I want to know […] Read more

Release the “Rut” CPM …

Do you ever get stuck in a place that you just can’t seem to get out of?

You wake up just not feeling yourself,

you use your “go to” happy tricks and they are just not getting you out of your funk …

Its ok to not always be OK

You go on Facebook it is a “false reality” people only put what they want you to see not the whole truth. Which can lead us to feel even worse. ( I challenge you to limit your Facebook time and keep it very focused).

I listened to a really good podcast this past week and […] Read more

The Mod Squad – Triangle

The Mod Squad – Triangle

One of my favorite yoga poses!

 

Triangle is amazing pose to get an amazing stretch.  It is a great pose to work in to your practice everyday.

Triangle Tips:

1. Triangle is the perfect pose to experiment with props.  A block, a chair, even your own body (just move the hand further up your leg) can help you get the most out of this pose.

2. Try to keep your chest and shoulders open and reach that top hand nice and tall.  It can be easy to let our open shoulder collapse and to round the upper back and defeat the purpose of the pose […] Read more

I, like my wife,  have always been SO fascinated about a few things…

*How some of get in tip top shape while over a third of America are morbidly obese!?!

In our latest MarriageFIT podcast we discuss those very things.

Go for your goals and don’t quit!…. Join in our on conversion and share with us your thoughts.

Make the Most of Your Life CPM’ers

Make the Most of Your Life CPM’ers

A good family friend of mine passed away from cancer recently. He was 58 years old (too young to die) and left 4 children behind. I feel when someone passes away it makes you reflect on your own life. You start to reminisce about the memories shared and look ahead to what the future holds. You start to ask yourself the questions,

“How much life do we have left to live?”

“Are we doing what we want if we knew tomorrow was our last?”

These are always hard deep questions to ask one’s self, and sometimes the answers are just as complex! If […] Read more
