Yep - it happened again. That feeling where I get so overwhelmed I become paralyzed - I don't know WHERE to begin or even HOW to begin. Nothing in my day gets accomplished. I get all caught up in things that have absolutely nothing to do with my health and wellness - and everything to [...]
I am deeply rested. And I confused it with being unmotivated, blue, unsure how to move forward. Being unmotivated doesn't even sound or feel like me. But it has been a very challenging 4+ months - personally and professionally. And I realized that the deep rest was so incredibly unfamiliar, that I mistook it for all things 'wrong' instead of 'peace at last.'
Relentless. That’s what winter 2014 feels like. Never ending gray skies and snow! How do you move to grin and motivation when the temperatures (Midwest and Northeast at least!) make you keep your winter hat, gloves, scarves, boots and extra layers on? Here are my three suggestions:
I love teaching plus size women how to lead an active lifestyle by finding the JOY in movement. This is in full alignment with the HAES (R) principle of 'promoting individually appropriate, enjoyable, life-enhancing physical activity, rather than exercise that is focused on a goal of weight loss.' This is my passion, my life's work, and the work I [...]
Getting into bed is a HUGE challenge for me. In order to be able to walk my talk, I'm creating a weeklong SLEEP CHALLENGE September 16-23 cosponsored by Essence of Vali. To join, it's as simple as filling out the Rochelle Rice Sleep Challenge Tracker! [PDF] I recommend that you print a copy to keep by your bed. At the end [...]

The end of the first quarter of 2013...and where have I been?!? What have I been doing?!? When you look back at January 1, 2013 with your hopes and ambitions high, what was the feeling in your body? Today, in every cell of my being, I feel the sensations of beginning projects and then the challenges [...]
Catherine Schuller was a smashing success with her "Best Bra Fitting You've Never Had!" workshop at the Full, Fit and Fabulous event! Says Catherine, "Get fit and try on the bra. The way you know it is really doing its job is to asses the line of projection. Stand facing the mirror with your arms at your [...]
I was appalled and disgusted by last night's Biggest Loser Season 14 show. I stopped watching this show a long time ago because of the abuse the trainers lay on the show's contestants. I have never pushed a client so far as to sustain an injury and I have never dropped an F bomb in their presence. [...]
1995 - Fit and Fat. That's what I stood for. As a member of the board of NAAFA (National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance) I believed no one should be discriminated against when it came to movement.
