How I’m working towards finding my mojo (and how you can too!)

Peace out, Man!

Sometimes, you just have to speak up no matter what might happen. When someone looks at you and says, “I’ll get you for that. No, really,” you have to trust that doing what you believe is right will somehow keep you safe from the wraith of someone who delights in making other people suffer, no…

Blubberguts

“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…

Face Off!

I love the Emmys, Golden Globes and the Oscars. I’m like any girl and adore seeing all the beautiful dresses, sparkling jewels, gorgeous hair do’s, must have but can never afford clutches, smoky eyes and of course the incredibly delightful frock horrors that should never have made the light of day. I may even love…

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…

Cover (up) Girl!

What I love about the show I am working on right now is that we are not locked down or locked up (although some of us certainly should be!) I also love the transparency (follow us on Twitter @ExcessBaggage9) – we are shooting ahead of schedule and not pretending that 2-3 weeks in real time is…

Confession of a not so reformed dieter.

Yesterday for breakfast I had pancakes with maple syrup. Then for lunch I had Swiss cheese and potato chips on thick sliced white bread,…

A True Godsend

Sometimes you can’t help but feel protected and guided. I have come to trust my path, good times and bad, secure in the knowledge that as long as I follow my heart and purpose then everything will be exactly as it should be. There’s no bad times, just better times ahead. Diamonds are formed under…

No balls, just well hung eggs!

I was just sitting here thinking about what I could write about today. There was a few things that piqued my interest but none more so than Giuliana Rancic’s brand new battle in overcoming her recent diagnosis of breast cancer (blessings to you girl, my heart goes out to you and odds are you WILL…

Love the skin you’re in!

I’m just sayin’

Feel the fear and do it anyway

I’ve talked earlier of my absolute rampant hatred of all things red carpet and touched briefly on my current inability to get myself out the door. Seriously, I totally get why Steve Jobs only ever had 6 friends. I find that number overwhelming. My single mother/clown doctor/writer/author/inspirational speaker/superwoman/good friend of mine Lou Pollard said recently,…
