Exercise. Your Favorite Habit To Break- Part II

By Leslie Scarbrough|February 9th, 2021|

Welcome to Part II of your new, healthy lifestyle! Exercise needn't be scary, but if your motivation is still on the fence, then use movement based activity instead. I’m not going to bore you with all the facts about “exercise does this and that and blah blah blah”. We’re all at the point where we KNOW the benefits of exercise and staying active. Let's look at it from a behavioral perspective. For instance: How can you make a small, but significant [...]


Exercise-Your Favorite Habit To Break- Part I

By Leslie Scarbrough|February 9th, 2021|

Today we get to talk about everybody’s favorite topic:  EXERCISE!!!  Pause for effect… Stay with me now! If you prefer to hide your head under the covers, then let’s change our wording a bit.  Instead of exercise (cue scary music), let’s call it movement, or motion.  Personally, I like them both so you choose whatever works for you. “But I don’t like to exercise, my back hurts, my knees are bad, I’m too old, I need to get the kids [...]


2020 and My Friend, Noom.

By Leslie Scarbrough|February 2nd, 2021|

How many times have you tried to lose weight? Were you successful? And what exactly defines successful weight loss for you?

By Leslie Scarbrough|August 12th, 2020|

So here's a bit about me: I hate being told what to do. Even as a kid I never listened to anyone. Ever. Just ask my mom. I gained a whole bunch of weight in my late 20’s and have “struggled” to take that weight off. For years, all the things I was doing was counterintuitive to my success. It was an uphill battle within myself, while thinking I was the one in charge. Biggest lesson learned?  I did not [...]

When it comes to changing your health habits, remember, small steps are the key to success. You might think that the "go big or go home" concept is the way to whip yourself into prime shape. If you're like me, you've told yourself countless times "today's the day- I'm going to get healthy! Today, I'm doing it all different!" Then, with the best of intentions you go and push yourself beyond your comfort zone and right over the cliff into [...]


Self Care isn’t Self-Ish

By Leslie Scarbrough|August 11th, 2020|

It's time we started taking self care seriously. I don’t have to tell you that these are very strange and unsettling times. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or on a desert island in the middle of nowhere like Tom Hanks in Castaway, you’re probably aware that we’re living a totally different lifestyle than we were a year ago. For the first time in our lifetime, for many of us, we’re navigating life through a serious amount of restrictions. [...]
