“How ARE You?”

Whenever I see someone who I haven’t in a while, especially if I’m back visiting my hometown, I’m always met with the question of “how’s it going?” and I never know how to answer. I think about my life, really, and it boils down to only a few things: work, exercise/weight loss trials, my cat,…

My Coaching Story

Over the weekend, I finally did something that has been on my “goal” list for a while. I sent a newsletter out to 50 people. It doesn’t sound like much, but I was pretty excited about it. I’ve been working as a Beachbody Coach for a while now, and when I first started out, I…

Making Goals, and Meeting Them

Recently, I’ve spent every evening feeling very anxious, and a little overwhelmed. I’ve been working harder this past week to focus on my part-time position as the Marketing Director for the Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus, as well as my dedication to motivate others as a fitness coach (which has been going amazing!). I have a…

Want vs. Need

Thanks to my newest purchase, I’ve really focused on money more than I ever have before. I’ve been putting each cost under a microscope, trying to figure out if it’s something I really need to be buying. I was super proud of myself this past week, I spent under $30 on groceries and still managed to…
