Yesterday I met with a new client. She is a beautiful woman who has struggled through many endeavours and wants to find herself. I was so excited when she spoke about her passion for food. It made me realize that sometimes I worry too much about the salad, when the dessert looks so divine. ( not all the time, just indulge) Yesterday I had a client say that she felt so guilty for eating a chocolate bar....”but it was a cheat day...”....what the heck is a cheat day? Are you being promiscuous with the other food in your pantry? if you consider the treats in your life to be cheating or sinful, you will fail. Eat the damn cake if it is in front of you. No need to be a glutton, but enjoy, and savour it, and don’t eat cake everyday.

Today...I attended the funeral of a friend. Her sister and I grew up together and I wanted to go to the visitation, offer my hugs and leave. As I approached the casket after offering my deepest condolences to a friend who lost a young sister, i was overwhelmed with distraught. Here lies a beautiful stunning young woman in her wedding gown, with no breath in her little body, and she looked like an angel. Young, stunning, peaceful and gorgeous.  And gone. I left and thought to myself... as i cried all the way home.... eat the damn cake. Enjoy your life. If you are worried about 5-10 lbs your problems are miniscule. Hug and love the one you’re with, and if you are not happy with the situation you are in, fix it. Pay it forward.

Yours in Health,
