Assisting you in reaching your Goals for a Vibrant Healthy Lifestyle.
Most people have specific ideas of what health looks like for them. And, most people try to make drastic changes in an attempt to get there. I instead try to assist people in making small changes to achieve lasting results. This is an easier and more effective way to permanently reach goals. Lets stop yo-yoing through life. Finding things that are enjoyable and easily integrated into your current life is the only way to achieve success. There is not such thing as a diet that works for every individual. There is a way of life and food that works for you though! And that is the great news. You are uniquely you, and that means in every way including the food YOUR body needs. On this page I will post things about food, relationship, exercise and recreational activities, because they are all equally important to you being your best you.
Mission: Empowering women to have it all. Be successful, joyful, playful and balanced. Raising beautiful powerful daughters for our future.
[07/29/17] I'm back. And so tired of seeing so much BS on here. Bottom line. Do what makes you happy. Feel your body explore and be great!

This is one of the SADDEST stories ever told in Hollywood. His name is Sylvestar Stallone. One of the BIGGEST and Most famous American Movie superstars. Back in the day, Stallone was a
struggling actor in every definition. At some point, he got so broke that he stole his wife's jewellery and sold it. Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless. Yes, he slept at the New York bus station for 3 days. Unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any
stranger. He didn't have money to feed the dog anymore. He sold it at $25 only. He says he walked away crying.
Two weeks later,he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match gave him the inspiration to write the script for the famous movie,ROCKY. He wrote the script for 20 hours! He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script. But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR in
the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR. Rocky himself. But the studio said NO. They wanted a REAL STAR.
They said he "Looked funny and talked funny". He left with his script. A few weeks later,the studio offered him $250,000 for the script. He refused. They even offered $350,000. He still refused. They wanted his movie. But NOT him. He said NO. He had to be
IN THAT MOVIE.
After a while,the studio agreed,gave him $35,000 for the script and let him star in it! The rest is history! The movie won Best Picture, Best Directing and Best Film Editing at the prestigious
Oscar Awards. He was even nominated for BEST ACTOR! The Movie ROCKY was even inducted into the American National Film Registry as one of the greatest movies ever!
And do You know the first thing he bought with the $35,000? THE DOG HE SOLD. Yes,Stallone LOVED HIS DOG SO MUCH that he stood at the liquor store for 3 days waiting for the man he sold
his dog to. And on the 3rd day,he saw the man coming with the dog. Stallone explained why he sold the dog and begged for the dog back. The man refused. Stallone offered him $100. The
man refused. He offered him $500. And the guy refused. Yes,he refused even $1000. And,Believe it or Not,Stallone had to pay $15,000 for the same,same dog he sold at $25 only! And he
finally got his dog back!
And today,the same Stallone who slept in the streets and sold his dog JUST BECAUSE he couldn't even feed it anymore,is one of the GREATEST Movie Stars who ever walked the Earth!
Being broke is BAD. Really BAD. Have You ever had a dream? A wonderful dream? But You are too broke to implement it? Too tiny to do it? Too small to accomplish it? Damn! I've been there too many times!
Life is tough. Opportunities will pass you by,just because you are a
NOBODY. People will want your products but NOT YOU. Its a tough
world. If you ain't already famous, or rich or "connected", You will find it rough.
Doors will be shut on You. People will steal your glory and crash your hopes. You will push and push. And yet NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.
And then your hopes will be crashed. You will be broke. Damn broke. You will do odd jobs for survival. You will be unable to feed yourself. And Yes, you may end up sleeping in the streets.
It happens. Yes, it does.
BUT NEVER LET THEM CRUSH THAT DREAM. Whatever happens to
You, Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes, Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away, Keep Dreaming.
Even when they shut you down, Keep Dreaming.
NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge You by HOW you look. And by WHAT You have.
But please, Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
Even if it means selling all your clothes and sleeping with the dogs, ITS OKAY! But AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ALIVE, Your STORY IS NOT OVER. TRUST ME.
Keep Up the Fight. Keep your dreams and hope alive. Go great .

We are in the middle of the season of stress! Our nutrition becomes more important at this time.
Make sure you are planning your meals and snacks the night before. As we run around doing extra things we often forget to eat, then become super hungry and grab a "filler food". These foods on the go don't have the proper nutrition to keep us energized. Healthy nutritionally dense foods are extremely important when you are under stress. Sign up for my newsletter to get more information on nutrition and healthy choices. www.untakenpath.com

What are you struggling with right now? What questions do you have? What info are you interested in?
Holiday Parties are in full swing starting tonight! Being mindful of what you eat is more difficult. Eating color is a great way to eat LESS fat and eat MORE vegetables without feeling deprived.
The more colorful ( I don't mean candies!!) the food naturally, the more nutrients it will have. Add in a vegetable or salad that you would not normally go for. Make a little less room for the stuff you want to stay away from.
Chew your food, and drink water before you eat.
Have fun and stay safe!
Day4 Tip: Slow Down.
Every bite you take should be a conscious "mindful" one. Take your time, chew your food and savour every bite. This will allow you to really taste what you are eating and help you determine if you really are enjoying it. It will allow you to feel full sooner. And your body will actual digest the food better the longer is spends in your mouth, due to the enzymes released in your saliva.
So try to chew every bite at every meal at least 15 times before you swallow. You can start at 10 chews and work your way up if it seems to weird or too much.
Let me know if you try it!
Day2 Tip: Drink more water!
I know, we all know it but don't do it. Try drinking 8-16oz glass 30 minutes before eating.
Day1 tip: focus on today/ next meal. Make it a healthy clean one. Don't worry about the future, now is all you have.
Day 1 Tip : Eat clean today. Just today. Avoid focusing on tomorrow or the next party.
Curious about what clean eating means?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Thanksgiving is only 3 days away! Can you believe it is here! I have struggled with keeping an ideal weight my entire life and the holidays have always felt like time to throw in the towel and deal with it in January. This mindset only led to guilt and sadness. And then "getting back" became that much harder in January.
This year my challenge for you is to change your mindset. Everything you put in your mouth is a choice! Your choice! Only you can decide to change how you think about and look at food.
Start today, with your meal planning and shopping. What healthier alternative can you add to the table on Thursday? Add some extra greens, healthy veggies, or a salad with an oil & vinegar dressing. Have 1/2 of your plate with this and put whatever you want on the other half.
Post below, if this brings stuff up for you
Until next time. :)
[11/21/14] Thanks giving is next week already! And this week end will officially kick off the season of stress! Surviving the Holidays with health and happiness is your challenge this year!

Next week I will be starting a month long coaching event. "The Unhealthy Holiday Hangover." Daily Tips on how to avoid this and any questions are welcome. I will be sending out a sign up form here this week so you can opt in to the e-mail as well as getting the support here on Facebook. Stay tuned, and here's to getting through the holidays without completely ruining your health! Please pass it along so we can have a fun supportive group!

[08/17/14] Happy Sunday Everyone! As a Health Coach one of the things I talk to people about is Primary Foods.

Have some fun today and feed your soul!
marcandangel.com Let’s be honest – we’ve all acted in toxic, damaging ways at one time or another. None of us are immune to occasional toxic mood swings, but many people are more evolved, balanced and aware, and such occurrences happen only rarely in their lives.
[08/07/14] Is organic beef any different? YES, is the answer. Organic grass fed beef is a much healthier choice. Not only are the cows raised more humanely, but because their diet is grass the meat is rich in Omega-3, and has 4 times the amount of Vitamin E. The ratio in grass fed beef is 3:1, Omega-6:Omega3 and in grain fed is up to a ratio of 20:1. So yes I think it makes it healthier and a much better choice.

[08/01/14] How you see yourself has a big impact on your weight loss goals. If you are constantly beating yourself up about how you look your results will reflect this. Who do you think gets better results, the person who has fun and enjoys their life, or the person who is comparing themselves to others and waiting for the scale to hit a certain number? Be you, do your best, enjoy yourself.
[07/30/14] Stress is a major contributing factor to weight gain and overeating. Are you truly aware of the stresses in your life? You may not even recognize that something is stressful. Do you have something positive in your life that helps you reduce the impact?
