Hello Bloggers,

My name is Tichina Arnold and on March 16, 2004, God blessed me with the most beautiful baby girl (Alijah Kai). She was perfect and as I sat gazing at her in the hospital, I wondered what had I gotten myself into.

An innocent little human being was solely dependent on me! I took all the CPR and breastfeeding classes and learned quite a bit.

Fall Frenzy: Your Health & Visceral Fat

Last Sunday I kept my commitment to myself and set aside time on Sunday, the first day of autumn, to do some fall planning.  It could not have been a more perfect setting or day.  Sailing on the ocean watching pods of dolphins swim by and seeing two blue whales in the distance was an amazing setting to plan for the fall.  I think it’s important to create a space that will enable you to have clarity to focus on what you truly want for yourself and how you plan on getting there.

Feeling the Fall Frenzy?

I’m not sure about you but for me and many of my friends and clients, the fall can feel a bit frantic. Maybe it is because we are sad summer is over and trying to adjust to the new schedules and demands of our family and work commitments.  It also might be because the fall is a bit like a new year where we want to get back on track for some of the nutrition, fitness or other health goals that may have slipped over the summer.
