Find Your Strength
💪🏽 💜 😊 🙌🏼 📚
The clients that I am honored to work with have been on a roll. I’ve been in awe so many times that have left me clapping, cheering, speechless, high-giving, and wondering how they are going to challenge themselves next.
💪🏽 💜 😊 🙌🏼 📚
Digging a little deeper to get the last few reps of a heavier lift.
Letting out an exhale before starting an exercise to get grounded.
Noticing the voice in their head that’s attempting to sabotage their strength.
Taking an extra minute to prep their body for movement because they slept funny or something is a little tight.
Asking for a little more weight because they are ready for that challenge.
Finding stillness then hitting the bag with purpose.
Tossing their arms up in the air at the end of a workout because they freaking crushed it.
💪🏽 💜 😊 🙌🏼 📚
If you’re interested in tapping into your strength, I’m ready for ya!
“I cannot recommend this to you enough: find something that you believe in, right down deep in the depths of your silvery plumage, and then throw your heart at it, blood and valves and veins and all. Because I did this, the world, though brambled and frothing at the mouth, looked more vibrant; blues were bluer, and even the fetid puddles that collected under rusting cars tasted as sweet as summer wine.”
~S.T., a domesticated crow in Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton
🦅 🧟♀️ 🐙 🌳 🌍
Finding a novel that keeps my attention can be challenging. My preference is to read books that make me a “better” and more productive person. My nose has been stuck in all pages of trauma recovery for over a year with a pile of books that will be read this year. But Hollow Kingdom got me - hook, line, and sinker. The poetry in this book had me laughing, holding my breath, tearing up, and wondering more about our existence. I’ve been noticing our feathered friends a lot more in the past few weeks. And I’m also noticing our tendency to be focused on our electronics instead of the beauty of those around us.
🦅 🧟♀️ 🐙 🌳 🌍
My wonder is what would we do with our time, if we weren’t scrolling other people’s stories. I’m committing to one day per week of no electronics. Sundays feel like a good day to shut it down. Who’s with me?

Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyway. ~Glendon Doyle
Sending strength and courage as we enter into the first full week of this beautiful new year.
Have you ever raced your partner in a parking garage?
Once in a while, I let Amol win. Last Saturday was one of those days.
Should I request a rematch?

“The true meaning of courage is to be afraid - and then, with your knees knocking and your heart racing, take the leap anyway.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
This week, listening to The Path Made Clear by @oprah on @libro.fm had so many quotable moments from not only Oprah, but Eckhart Tolle, Jay Z, Elizabeth Gilbert, and so many others.
Over the past few months, my clients have been pushing past their fears and trying out “weird” movements that allow them to check in with their breath, observe responses that occur within their body during challenges, as well as notice the voice inside their head during moments of failure. I’m honored to be their guide as they examine their relationship with movement.
Discovering Courage 💪🏽
Showing Up. Paying Attention. Moving Through Fears. Exploring Who I Really Am.
What are you focused on right now?
Happy New Year!
🥊 😊 💪🏽🌟
Nearly eight out the last ten years have been spent with these two beautiful souls. We’ve have many adventures over these years. We’ve supported each other through some of the toughest days. We’ve laughed so many times until our faces hurt.
⛰ 🏝 🏄 🥊
Cheers to so many more days of laughing our asses off, hiking mountains, and going to bed at 8:30.
“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.” ~Louisa May Alcott

Examining the heavy stuff that we hold deep inside us can allow us to free ourselves from that weight. The work can be challenging. The work can be painful and upsetting. But you can get to the other side when the heavy stuff becomes lighter and much more manageable.
🥊 🥊 🥊
My hope is that whatever you’re carrying gets lighter as the days go by.
2020 is my year of COURAGE.
💫 💫 💫
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” ~Anais Nin
💫 💫 💫
As I continue to explore movement, support others as they find their strength, and uphold relationships with family and friends, courage will be at the front of my mind.
💫 💫 💫
I’ve felt this incredible pull to expand who I am. And I’m learning how my fears can be a roadblock for that expansion. Examining these fears and moving through them and past them is going to allow me to create something magical.
💫 💫 💫
Do you have a word for the year ahead?
Over the past several years, I choose a word as my focal point for the year.
💫 💫 💫
In 2018, FORWARD reminded me to step outside my self-created box to explore, learn, and try new things. As a result, my hip surgery was successful, boxing and kettlebells became my favorite ways to move, reading about trauma made an appearance, and @elmolerino and I traveled to Hawaii.
💫 💫 💫
In 2019, CONNECTION reminded me to focus on people and places that that warmed my heart. It also depended my connection with myself. I worked on, talked about, and studied trauma (a lot). Decisions were made to serve my clients in a better ways. I met new people and explored a tiny area of Toronto. My heart is always in the mountains and I love to put my feet in the sand. Connection also meant that I knew when I needed to remain quiet and look inward, which had guided me to my word for 2020.
💫 💫 💫
This word appeared for me back in October when I developed a clear sense of my direction. I’m excited to head into 2020 with this word as my guide. Any guesses what the word might be? I’ll share it here tomorrow. Post your guesses in the comments below.
💫 💫 💫
Throwback to that time my food matched my outfit. I may have been a celery bandit at a work party back in the day. There were few options for vegetarians and this girl was hungry. 💚💙💚
Are you rushing around to get all of the deals today? Enjoying time with family friends? Having leftovers? 🛍 🥧 👫
What was the most memorable part of your Thanksgiving dinner?
From one turkey to another, have an amazing day with your family and friends. 🤗
“When the opponent expands, I contract. When he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, I do not hit - it hits all by itself.” ~Bruce Lee💫
A few weeks ago, my therapist and I were discussing the idea of expansion and contraction. I’d been beating myself up because I wasn’t “doing all of the things.” Typically, I’m always checking things off the list and never feeling like it’s all done. I’ve realized that lately, I’m relaxing more and that feels foreign. 💫
One cannot constantly be expanded or it will die. Similarly, one cannot remain contracted or it will perish. Flowing between contraction and expansion keeps us alive and allows us to thrive. 💫
How do you flow between expansion and contraction? 💫
It’s been a minute; well actually it’s been three months since I’ve posted here. I’ve made some new friends both here and in real life. Hello to all of you! 🙌🏼
While I was mostly absent from the social media world, I’ve been active out here in the world. 🌎
In September, I spent a weekend in Toronto with an incredible group of people as we learned Movement For Trauma from Jane Clapp.
Boxing and I are falling more and more in love. Moving my feet and staying engaged while drilling are two aspects that have been focuses lately. Remembering to breathe and staying out of my overthinking mind that always leans toward perfection are continued components that I’m working on. 🥊
Lifting weights and swinging bells are on the back burner a little bit. I’ve realized that I’m craving a workout buddy when I do strength train. Switching up my movement practice has been fun. Everything doesn’t need to have a goal attached to it. Moving because it feels good is just as important as moving to reach that goal. 🏋🏻♀️
This week, I’m visiting family that I’ve missed so much over the past year. Moving means a spin class, laughing so hard my abs hurt, chasing kids around the house, hiding in child’s pose in a couch fort from my brother and his son, and dance parties. 💃

Every day is #nationaldogday with Cody Bear. This #oldmanbabydog loves playing catch, hiking mountains, wading in the ocean, following me around the house, snuggling during a movie, and taking up most of the bed. So glad that Amol rescued him so many moons ago. Cody Bear is the absolute sweetest pup around.

"Life is an ever flowing process and somewhere on the path some unpleasant things will pop up - they might leave a scar, but then life is flowing, and like running water, when it stops it goes stale. Go bravely on, my friend, because each experience teaches a lesson. Keep blasting because life is such that sometimes it is nice and sometimes it is not." ~Bruce Lee
My boxing practice has been focusing on moving from a point of stillness. Finding the stillness means that my mind is still, my body is calm, and my exhales are long. When all of those things are combined, I can make contact on the bag with ease. I'm grounded to the earth and move with ease.
Through this practice, the buzzing in my mind and the pounding in my chest when I move away from stillness has become obvious to me. This awareness comes from meditation, exhalation, and observation.
Bringing this stillness out of boxing practice and into my everyday life allows me to continue to move forward is this beautiful, yet sometimes messy life.

"When you create a difference in someone’s life, you not only impact their life, you impact everyone influenced by them throughout their entire lifetime. No act is ever too small. One by one, this is how we make an ocean rise." [email protected]
When I read this quote, it made me think back to one of my first years as a teacher. During an engaging professional development session, we discussed the ripple effect and I remember staring at a pool of water with ripples. This moment motivated me to do better and be better for my students, their families, and my coworkers.
When I think of my present role as a "you totally got this sh!t" coach, I find deeper meaning in my work. When my clients feel strong and are working toward their goals (life heavier, despise the assault bike less, get out of my head + crawl), they create an infectious energy that ripples out into their families and community.
There's more patience for the person who pulled in front of you and is going 5 mph under the speed limit.
There's more gratitude for the grocery store clerk who takes extra care with your eggs.
There's more love for your family even when they leave dirty socks under the couch.
There's more joy when we see our neighbor walking with their puppy.
There's more compassion when we see someone struggling because we've freaking been there.
This is our TRANSFORMATION. This is how we create change. This is how we make a difference.
Happy "Transformation Tuesday," friends.
That feeling when you’ve had three great nights of sleep in a row and you’re ready for the week.
And you have your friends at your side so if you start to falter by Wednesday, they can lift you back up.
Smile big. Laugh loudly. Live boldly.
Today, my dad would have been celebrating his 70th birthday. This man lived a challenging life after returning from Vietnam. He stumbled through so many moments, but always managed to get back up and try again. He was resilient.
For a good chunk of my life, our relationship was either nonexistent or extremely strained. As I entered adulthood, we worked hard to mend our relationship. My dad was one of the first people that I'd call if something was wrong and he'd always answer the phone and assure me that everything was going to be okay. He cared deeply about helping people.
My dad loved to dance. My dad loved to laugh. My dad loved his Fords. My dad loved his family. And my dad loved to smile and to make people smile.
So today's big cheesy smiling post is to honor my dad, thank him for his service, and express gratitude for all of answered calls, impromptu dance parties, and Crossword puzzles that you saved for me.
If the mood strikes you today, put on some Bob Marley or Elton John and dance a bit to celebrate my dad's birthday.
I came across this video because apparently it's International Left-Handers Day: http://ow.ly/MEpZ30plATX
I got sucked into this video because I am left-handed, but I stayed when they talked about the advantage of being a left-handed fighter. Last year, I started boxing as if I was a right-handed person. Fortunately for me, my hip wasn't happy rotating in that direction, so I switched hands and now am a South Paw.
Boxing has really changed my life in so many ways. In addition to psychotherapy, it has helped me heal from trauma.
When I think back to my first day on the bag, I wasn't breathing AND more importantly, I wasn't aware that I wasn't breathing. My coach who is skilled at observing his boxers reminded me every single time to breathe.
"You're going to pass out if you don't breathe."
"Get your breathing under control."
Learning to breathe, especially to exhale, carried over well when I worked on traumatic experiences using EMDR. The awareness of my breathing, or lack thereof, aided in observing sensations in my body. Certain traumas brought on a tightness in my chest; others made my gut feel incredibly uncomfortable. Learning to observe feelings in my body and the quality of my breath are helping me calm anxious feelings before they begin to spiral.
Boxing requires a person to be focused, calm, and in control, which has helped me both mentally and emotionally in my trauma recovery.
Did you know that I'm teaching others this incredible sport? Are you interested in learning to box? Wondering if you have to get in the ring? Have another question or two before you glove up? Let me know in the comments below or message me directly here or at [email protected].
I’ve been there. When you are the last person you tend to at the end of the day. When weeks become months since you took a long, deep breath ...let alone gotten a workout in. When you become a slave to the scale and are afraid of finding a mirror around the corner. When the burden on your shoulders threatens to bring you to your knees and your anxiety is the first thing that greets you in the morning.
I’ve been there and promise you there is a better way to live.
If you learn nothing else from me, I hope you learn that you deserve better. You deserve to feel strong, capable and confident. You deserve to be a priority. You deserve to love your amazing, beautiful body and your amazing, beautiful self.
You deserve your best you and your fullest life. I will help you find your strength. Together, we will flourish.
