exposure therapy + my current physique

Exposure therapy. Have you heard of this? It’s doing something you’re uncomfortable with repeatedly over time with the idea that this repeated exposure eventually decreases one’s discomfort. I’m into it cuz this is the exact process I’ll do with myself with the scale. If I don’t go on the scale for months, the first hundredContinue reading “exposure therapy + my current physique”

scales, cups and spoons

Had a couple of macro calls today and this question came up: Can I use a measuring cup instead of a food scale?  Yes you can because if you’re trying to keep portions in check, any measurement is better than no measurement — or eating right out of the bag, right?  For my tribe, IContinue reading “scales, cups and spoons”

crossing the finish line was the wrong goal 

When I stopped focusing on the finish line, stuff started to fall into place.  I spent over 20 years chasing a literal finish line racing triathlon.

self doubt + imposter syndrome

I’ve definitely turned my #passion into #profit. But it always wasn’t enjoyable. There were times I had tremendous self doubt. Imposter syndrome. Fear of choosing a non transitional way. As a Honolulu Personal Trainer, running your own business is tough! Born to parents who have worked since their teens.

stop playing small in your weight loss

When it comes to my body, I spent far too many of my 44 years playing small.  Chasing a SMALL number on the scale. (Jenny Craig start student) Laser focus on fitting into a SMALL clothing size. (single digit size chaser) Our local mall had a store with sizes 00-8. Many of my high school classmates woreContinue reading “stop playing small in your weight loss”
