This is My Wish, What is on Your Wishlist?

On my 49th birthday, I made a wish to myself that I would do everything I could to get in shape and be the healthiest I could be for my 50th birthday. I have a wonderful loving family, an amazing career, and this blog that has been a way to be creative, work on my photography and share my passions.  What I was not doing was taking care of myself and I was not happy in my body.  I have been a yo-yo dieter my whole adult life and exercise, the one thing that should be a priority, was the easiest thing to blow off.  One month after my birthday, 12 weeks ago, I started a new healthy lifestyle program and have stuck to it.  I have finally found a way that works with my crazy schedule to take off the weight, keep it off and I am exercising everyday.  It is not easy and I have not figured it all out, but it is working for me and I plan on sticking with it past that big birthday and beyond.  I started to feel so good, that I am now coaching other women (and a few men) and that feels even better. I never knew how much I would enjoy helping others change their lives and get healthy.

If you want to be coached by ME (Yes, you heard that right.. by ME!) and find out what I am doing that has made such a big impact on my life, leave me a comment (or send me an email via the contact page) and I will help you be the best you can be!  We can do this together!

And can I let you in on a little secret?  I am wearing a size 6 dress (I have NEVER worn a size 6.. except maybe when I got married) and that feels pretty awesome… #happydance

    Incorporating exercise always a challenge! Did you get your old clothes altered or buy all new? 🙂

    • Hi DeDe – That’s the hard part.. right now I am wearing the same few things over and over. I am having my closet review this week – so I am hoping Alison can help me see what works on me and what needs to be tossed, altered, etc. I cant buy all new clothes – but I do love the idea of having a capsule Wardrobe – a few things I love and rotate. I will keep you posted! xxRidgely

  8. Very interested in learning more, thanks!

    Ridgely, I have been mulling this post over for a couple of days. I’m in the same boat – just turned 48 and in the long-term want to be healthier and more fit. But in the short-term, I have my 30th at Foxcroft in April. It would be so great to drop a few pounds prior! I would love to hear about your program and success. Thank you – Maria (Saffer) Cobb

  14. I would love to be coached by you . I’m in! I can’t wait to hear back from you.

    I can’t put off the reboot any longer – welcome your help and guidance!
