IF IT DOESN’T CHALLENGE YOU IT DOESN’T CHANGE YOU

IF IT DOESN’T CHALLENGE YOU IT DOESN’T CHANGE YOU

That slogan is by Fred DeVito who along with his wife Elizabeth Halfpapp are the creators of Core Fusion and the heads of the now global EXHALE spas.  They are also the authors of the new book BARRE FITNESS. Fred yells that out in class when he wants to push you and for you to push yourself.  But it is such a great saying it can be used to apply to most anything. Fred had to trademark it as others… Read More

SEND HEALING THOUGHTS TO BOBBY

SEND HEALING THOUGHTS TO BOBBY

We all know the power of collective positive energy, prayer, love, lighting candles, silent or verbal healing thoughts sent through the universe to those in need. Well, one of our own Gratitude and Trust contributors and followers is in need of some powerful group healing. Bobby Levithan has recently received a bad diagnosis.  But Bobby is made of tough stuff.

You Can Never Be Too Rich or Too Thin – Unless You Weigh 89lbs

You Can Never Be Too Rich or Too Thin – Unless You Weigh 89lbs

I quit eating food one time for about a year. I called it being vegan. My Uncle called it “hot”, he has no boundaries and likes submissive women. The hospital called it “anorexic”.  It was my junior year of high school. I started the year weighing 112lbs and eating anything I wanted. I was always super skinny. I tell people that  I used to weigh 400 lbs though. Everybody likes a weight loss success story. Nobody likes a naturally thin… Read More

APPRECIATING THE PRESENT

APPRECIATING THE PRESENT

  Here’s the thing: you can’t change the past and you can’t predict the future. We know these things on a fundamental level yet we do little things every day to suggest otherwise. I get stuck on the little things, I complain about the little things. It’s nearly constant, and it’s a perpetual New Year’s resolution of mine to knock it off.

WORKING OUT – DEPRESSION

WORKING OUT – DEPRESSION

  Since Robin Williams’ death depression has been on all of our minds. And my guess is many of us, from time to time, have suffered from it in various forms. While I can get depressed, and have, it’s almost always related to an event. A big fight with my oldest child can send me reeling back in time to fights with my parents that were left unresolved and I become depressed. I have some depression triggers. We all do.… Read More

DEVIL IN A WHITE DRESS

DEVIL IN A WHITE DRESS

When one thinks of white powdery addictive substances the first thing that comes to mind is cocaine. And without question it fits the bill. But it is far from most lethal, highly addictive, widely ingested white, powdery substance around. That would be sugar. Yes, the number one devil in a white dress is that sweet tasting, seemingly banal though highly addictive sugar, and its relatives, fructose, corn syrup and the rest of the sweeteners we seemingly cannot live without. America’s… Read More
