It’s A Choice, Not A Cheat

As I have the opportunity to work with more and more clients I have come to realize that as a society we have this notion built up around cheating. Specifically cheating when on a diet.

It’s all bursts of sunshine, butterflies, and bunnies. These days I actually feel like Snow White because we have all kinds of animals hanging out on our porch for spring!

There are various definitions of what an athlete is. I remember being 8 and playing soccer on the team my Dad coached. I didn’t know it then, but I suppose I was an athlete. I’ve been running, swimming, paddling (yes that’s a sport when you grow up in Hawaii), or some form of exercising since…

Hot, Hot, Hot: Arrichion Hot Yoga

  Happy February! (Or as we fondly call it in our house, Beckuary since my birthday is in a couple of weeks) February is one of my absolute favorite months and Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays (stereotypical, I know). So in honor of that I’m going to be running a two week…
