athletedad.com I am not a runner. In fact, I don’t even like to run. Except for the occasional 400 meter (sometimes even 800m!) run as part of a CrossFit WOD, I do not run at all. So why am I reading a book on running an ultra marathon? Because of the ultimate display of human spirit and persistence – one that you can apply to anything in your life. This book, ‘Finding Ultra‘ by Rich Roll isn’t just about a...

poesdeadlydaughter.blogspot.com “We live in world where we are taught from the start that we are thinking creatures that feel. The truth is, we are feeling creatures that think” I heard this quote while attending a lecture by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, titled Stroke of Genius. As a member of the “left brain dominant” community, this statement has had a profound impact on me You see, even though I am a life coach and understand the importance of our emotions and feelings,...

Earlier this week, I was training at my favorite gym , when I came across this drawing on the whiteboard on the olympic lifting side (Max Aita training). It was meant to inspire the lifters and keep them motivated during their pursuit of performing the perfect Snatch and Clean and Jerk movements. I realized how applicable the image was to everyday life. Whether it’s the quest to get stronger, get promoted, lose weight or build to your ideal life,...

I just finished reading ‘The China Study’ by Dr. T. Colin Campbell. It’s a fascinating book that illustrates the benefits of a largely plant-based diet. I can’t believe it only took me 3 days to read it, and that was during a vacation trip to Vegas! As a life-long meat eater (and believer of the fact that without meat, we will fail to get adequate protein) I have to say, the evidence is hard to deny. The quick...

I was all ready for 2013…goals set…schedules planned out…strategies thought out and then BAM! I got a nasty flu. Today is January 8. 8!? What the hell happened to the whole first week of the New Year? During this week, I experienced the full roller coaster of emotions. Super frustrated that I got sick, then super anxious as I continued to get worse and develop a high fever and horrible cough. Then more frustration with the...

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending an interview with Tim Ferriss as part of the City Arts and Lectures Program in San Francisco. As expected, Tim was entertaining and super inspirational. He embodies a person who has set NO BOUNDARIES or limitations to what can be achieved and puts every excuse I have ever made about not being able to do something, to shame. Tim spoke about his latest book “The Four Hour Chef”...

A few days ago, I read a blog by one of my favorite bloggers Chris Guillbeau. It was titled, “The Goal”. Such a fantastic post, it got me thinking on what would be on my list. So I created one! What’s on YOUR list? The goal is to: Be ME Live life on my terms Do more of what I love and less of what I don’t Do work that’s meaningful and has an impact on others. Work that doesn’t feel...

It’s that time of year again – we’re getting ready to bring on another new year and every one’s talking about making New Year’s resolutions and setting goals. Goal setting in itself is easy. Just pick something you want to do and voila – you’ve got a goal. But, determining if it’s the RIGHT goal – one that will make an impact and one you’ll stick with takes a little more thought. I believe that setting goals and...

Have I got your attention? I’ve been on the hunt for awesome events to attend as part of my growth as a life coach. A few weeks ago, I came upon this TEDx event titled ‘The pursuit of Passion’. As you can imagine, my immediate response was ‘sign me up!’ I am a huge fan of TED talks and TEDx events (local self-organized events to create a TED like experience) are an excellent way to experience some...
