Ever since we found out we were moving to Germany, my husband and I started working on learning German.  (We have been using Duolingo - a free app and Rosetta Stone -just in case anyone is interested in learning a language). In German, "Langsam, bitte" means: Slowly please. This has been my mantra the past few days...

We have two choices:  We can either give up OR we can give in...

You know that feeling you get as you contemplate doing something big?  Making a big change?  Making a huge leap?  Taking a chance?   Your stomach tightens.  Your heart beats like a hummingbird's wings.  Maybe your hands shake.  A thousand thoughts race through your head simultaneously yet you are able to pinpoint what each one is trying to tell you - STOP -  they all say. "Don't do it.  Go back.  It's too scary.  It's not going to work." And then...

I've been taking a lot of risks lately - not physical risks like skydiving or bungee jumping...

Let's say you are at the book store.  You've got your coffee in one hand and the newest, just released, thriller from the hottest New York Times Best Selling Author in your other hand. You sit down in a cushioned chair (that has an awful floral pattern on it).  You  put on your reading glasses.  And you turn to...

Summer is winding down.  (Already! Can you believe it?)  School supplies are already piled up on the shelves in the stores.  Fall fashion has already started filling the innards of the magazines at the supermarket checkout line.  People are already talking about trading in their bikinis for skinny jeans and what they are doing for Labor Day. It's truly mind-blowing how fast time goes.  My daughter, my baby girl, will be going into first grade and my son will be attending preschool.  It's hard to fathom, that in less than a month, we will be flying overseas and...

In honor of the fact that I have FINALLY picked a name for my growing team of BeachBody Coaches, I wanted to share what this team is all about! I have been racking my brain for a year (literally) with what to call my team. WHY? Because our name needed to convey our true identity . Our name has meaning.  It has purpose.  It describes our mission - what we stand for and what we want for ourselves and others who join us. Fight For Fit means we NEVER stop working on our health and fitness.  We fight for ours and we...

Darkness comes before the light. You've heard that before, right?  BUT have you ever stopped to really think about what it means?   To think about how that simple, yet powerful phrase, applies to so many aspects of your life?  Of any of our lives? Life isn't easy.  Let's just say that and get that out of the way because anyone who has been on this planet for more than 5 years (and hasn't been living in a bubble) can attest to that. "Darkness" can refer to SO many things - pain, depression,...
