Veterans Day
Hope you had a great weekend. 

This week we observe Veteran's Day in honor of our military. As you go about your business and activities this week, please remember those who have served in our armed forces and their families for their phenomenal sacrifices for our freedom.

I can't imagine the courage, faith, service and dedication it takes to serve in any branch of the armed forces. Their  selflessness deserves hero status in my eyes.  Without them who knows what this country would look like or what freedoms would have been taken away from us.

My sincere thanks, appreciation and gratitude goes out to all of you who have served. I also want to thank the families and friends that have ever had to live one day in doubt if your loved one was injured, imprisoned or dead. You too are heros in my eyes.

From my heart to yours, thank you.,

Love & hugs,

A Hero Lies In You 
Mariah Carey - Hero
Mariah Carey - Hero
Somewhere in the core of your being, there is a hero. That part of you knows you completely and wants the best for you.  It is ready and waiting to be called upon to support you in moving through your current challenges, life situations and perceived limitations.

May the lyrics of this song give you strength, peace and faith to trust yourself enough to take the next steps towards living a life you love.

Mariah Carey, Hero - lyrics

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away.......

My request, advice and encouragement is to be open and willing to step into your magnificence. Partner with me to bridge the gap from where you are to where you say you want to be in any life situation or relationship.

You are not alone. I am your partner in possibilities!

You are not alone! 

Take a look below how transparent emotional eating is and how likely we are to repeat the cycle.

Behavior Cycles


Three steps occur in a behavior cycle that leads to the development of a habit: 
The cue (trigger), the behavior (action) and the reinforcement (payoff).


Here are a few examples of behavior cycles. In order to change a behavior, it is important to understand its complexities.





What happened?
What were the circumstances?

What I did because of the situation, event or circumstances.


Why I believe what I did was a good thing to do given the situation.
Why I will probably do the same thing again.



I was nervous.

I drank a beer.

I felt more at ease.

I was tired.

I ate some chocolate.

I felt more alert.

She called me foolish.

I went out to get some ice cream.

I felt soothed.

I was hungry

I ate a sandwich.

My hunger was ended.

I thought about how sore I would be

I went to home instead of to the gym

I avoided the anticipated pain

I became angry

I ate a big meal

My anger was quieted
