The games we play

Working on Loser we were always trying to keep everything secret from the contestants, hoping to catch that element of surprise (or horror) on camera the first and most natural and therefore realistic response to whatever torturous challenge we set for them. We were often surprised at how much they actually knew and it was not uncommon for them…

“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says I will try again tomorrow.”  If I had been a Spice Girl I would have been labeled Old Spice for sure. Never Posh, sometimes Scary but never ever Sporty. I don’t possess an athletic bone in…

What I like about Darryn Lyons

It’s also for these reasons that I contribute to a regular…

Think outside the box

At work and talking yourself into bypassing the gym only to go home and veg out in front of the TV, promising you will work out twice as hard tomorrow? At home convincing yourself that you are just too tired to go for a walk but you will run twice as far tomorrow? Today’s workout…

Managing the Meltdowns.

For Shelley and anyone else who may need it……. I got an email the other day from a mom whose 5 year old has just been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder otherwise known as Aspergers.  I know that  first feeling all too well as Kai was the same age when he got his diagnosis except…
