They say that you will never change your life until you change something you do daily. While, at face value, they may seem like small steps they are, actually, BIG steps when looking to create a sustainable, and realistic, lifestyle change.

I Had To Hear It for the “1001” Time!

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend our business coach, Jill Coleman’s, 2-Day Business Retreat in beautiful Asheville, NC. If you have never been, I highly recommend a visit!

My Tug-Of-War…

By: Janine Serio

I am sure you have heard (and read) all of these before…

“Can you BOOSE IT and still LOSE IT?”

“Drink red wine to lose weight!”

“Did you know that drinking wine before bed will HELP YOU lose weight?”

“Alcohol instantly turns to fat!”

I have never truly understood – okay, maybe a little – why alcohol (in general) gets a negative reputation within the fitness community. Can’t the same argument be made with pretty much ANYTHING? Continue reading
