How I lost 20 pounds and counting….

March 28, 2017 | Posted in General | By

Dave & Heather videoOK, confession time. I was hesitant to talk about my recent weight loss because as a coach, it’s not what I want to focus on.

I am a family life coach, not a fitness coach. Although I did start out as a fitness coach over 10 years ago.

But here I am, sharing about my weight loss because so many of you have reached out to hear what I was doing.

And frankly, now at 45, weight loss is different for me than it was 10 years ago. As we age, it doesn’t become harder to lose weight, we just need to do different things! Thankfully, I now have the proper tools!

So I made a video with my personal fitness coach and dear friend, Dave Albin. Dave worked for Tony Robbins for 20 years and now travels all over the world with his company FirewalkAdventures.com.

The video is about 20 minutes long, and we’ve set up a “Zoom” call for this Thursday, March 30th at 8:30pm to offer even more information, or to answer any questions you might have about your personal weight loss goals.

Watch the video then join us this Thursday for the call!

Why you should stop telling your kid you are proud of them!

March 7, 2017 | Posted in Family, General, Kids, Parenting, Self-Esteem | By

17200367_10211747278293290_1003290547_oRecently a client asked me “How can I instill a sense of pride in my kid?”

My answer: “Stop telling them you are proud of them every time they do something!” 

No really. Just stop. Here’s why.

When we over praise, we teach kids that they should be doing things for us, for the validation, and not for their own self satisfaction.

It also teaches them that their worth is equated to what they do, produce, or achieve.

Trade your praise for love and affection and ask your child how they feel about their own performance instead.

The picture shown here is the inside of a card that I sent to our daughter Madison. She is 22 and just got a great job! I am proud of her…. but not because she got a great job.

I am proud of her because she’s my daughter and I love her. 

It may sound like such a small distinction but when your child fails at something, and they will, they will believe they have let you down, and that they are not worthy of your affection or love if you only praise achievements.

I see it every single day and it breaks my heart.

So instead of praising your kiddo all of the time, try this instead.

Ask them: “How do you feel you did?” Then respond to their feelings.

There is definitely a time and place for praising your kiddos! I like to praise them when they do acts of kindness that you wouldn’t normally expect. Like seeing a woman in the grocery store dropping items and running over to help, or offering their own money to someone in need and so on.

Even then, be sure to ask them how those acts made them feel! Allow them to grow a sense of pride in themselves by advocating for their success without over praising. Then, instead of praising, try saying something like “That was beautiful to see, thank you!”

Love__Beach__Sunset__by_danicafaye

Ohhhhh it’s that FUN time again when I give you questions to ask your significant other to see how well you know each other! If you don’t have a significant other, ask a friend, family member, or your kiddo!

The goal is not to get all the answers right, the goal is to open a dialogue with your partner to share, learn, and bond!! Woooo bonding! Yeah!!!

Here we go! Ask your partner these questions, see if you know the answers, and let the fun begin:

  • What was the last selfless act you performed?
  • When did you cry last?
  • What is your favorite brand or type of shoes and why?
  • How did you feel about middle school?
  • Who would you call if you needed to talk but you couldn’t reach me?
  • Where was your favorite place to visit as a child?
  • If you could only take 3 things with you on a trip for 6 months, what would you take?
  • What would be the title of a book all about you?
  • What was your all time favorite childhood toy?
  • If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
  • Which piece of modern technology would you completely eliminate and why?

Remember this is not a contest, it’s an opportunity to share, learn, and grow together. I would love to hear how it goes, just leave your comment at the bottom of this page!

1 Question that EVERY single person better ask a potential mate!

February 20, 2017 | Posted in General | By

44148_20140322_214355_BADINVESTMENT

If you don’t mind casual dating and are NOT looking for a serious relationship, you can stop reading now.

If you are looking for that special someone, or might be in the future, read on…

This is the one question that you need to ask a potential mate before you ever consider going out with them again!

What will you bring to a relationship?

Seriously, it’s about time people started to ask potential mates what they have to offer! Not because you are looking to take from them but because if you are willing to go into a relationship at 100%, you need to know they are willing to do the same!

I could give you a million examples but let me share my own story.

When I was 22, I married my first husband Don. He was an alcoholic and much older than me. I was young and dumb and believed him when he said “Once we get married, I will stop drinking.”

He was kind, and we liked the same things, but those qualities are less and less endearing after you’ve come home drunk for 7 nights in a row.

I never asked him what he had to offer in a relationship because I mistakenly thought we’d build it together. The problem with that thinking is that I was too young and dumb to know how to build anything, and he was too drunk.

Some people think a home is the biggest investment you will ever make, it’s not, your relationship is!

If you don’t invest wisely, you will get burned. If you are willing to put in 100%, why would you take a risk on someone who is only going to put in 20%, it just doesn’t make sense!

Asking someone what they have to offer in a relationship is a smart, decisive question that can scare off anyone who’s not serious, and seem attractive to someone who is willing to play full out!

Here are just a few things to look for when considering your relationship investments:

  • Are they financially responsible? I’m not talking about looking for someone rich, I’m talking about someone who has a good head on his shoulders and knows how to handle money.
  • Are they emotionally stable? *Secure and confident vs jealous and emotionally unavailable.
  • Do they share similar values? *Honesty, loyalty, altruism, family, ambition, monogamy, etc…
  • Do they have any addictions, unhealthy habits, or questionable friendships?
  • Do they speak kindly, or harshly about past relationships? *Ask “What happened with your last breakup?” If they start with he or she was a B*itch, or A**hole, then run! Or, if they start with “He or she was the best thing that ever happened to me and I can’t move on,” then run! If they are able to take some of the responsibility and speak highly or at least neutral of their EX then they might be emotionally healthy people!
  • Where do they want to be in 5 years?
  • Are they ambitious or content to stay exactly where they are forever?
  • Are they inappropriately attached to their parents? *Do they live at home? Are they a mama’s boy or still a little girl?
  • Do they have pets and if so do they take good care of them?
  • How is their personal hygiene and their personal space? *If you marry a pig, don’t expect that to change just because you put a ring on it.

Listen, most clients who come in complaining about their spouse tell me that they had the same “bad qualities” when they were dating but they expected them to step up to the occasion of matrimony.

It doesn’t work that way! So, if you are single… don’t be afraid to expect a potential mate to bring something to the game!

And don’t forget, a quality mate will be looking for what YOU bring to the table too! Make sure you have something of quality to offer in a relationship! If not, work on getting healthy before you start looking for your true love!

A quality relationship is the biggest investment you will ever make….. invest wisely!

As always, if you need some help, just contact me!
