Sheri’s Rants #63: Gluten Free Abusers

August 5, 2016 by


David and I are in a high end restaurant.  The server approaches and David says – “We don’t eat wheat, corn, any grain or dairy.  Can you guide us with the menu?”  The server gets flustered.  She heads off to the kitchen for advice, and comes back irritated.  “So, basically, you want a leaf of […]

The Power of Priority

February 3, 2016 by


It’s popular, this time of year, to speak of goals and resolutions.  I am not a fan. Sure, we all have things we’re wanting to accomplish; failings from the last year we’d like to avoid, gym memberships we’d like to be using and dietary changes we do not adhere to.  Do we really need to set […]

Sheri’s Rants #61: Elegant Thinking

October 25, 2012 by


When it comes to physical transformation, what is going on between your ears is where the rubber meets the road.  Your thinking provides the traction so you can take off – or the slippery surface you spend futile hours and days and weeks and months and even years slopping around on. Research shows that all […]

Sheri’s Rants # 60: ASSIST YOUR SELF

June 20, 2012 by


Expecting to completely transform our bodies while maintaining our current lifestyle habits is just flat out ignorance of reality. Resisting the positive changes required is what makes transformation hard. Assist yourself. Here’s how: The number one thing to change is to STOP doing anything that causes harm. In our transformation world, this means to stop […]

Sheri’s Rants #59: Tricky Betting Practices

June 18, 2012 by


When I do not plan my food out as I head out the door, I am assuming that the Future Me will somehow have more time, be more thoughtful, more relaxed, and have more resources than the Now Me does. We all know it doesn’t work that way. We all know that the Future Me […]

Sheri’s Rants #58: Protocol vs Process

March 21, 2012 by


Dieting has taught us that when it comes to weight loss (and even wellness), we have to subscribe to a protocol.  We have learned to ask the question “What’s the Diet?” or “What is the protocol?” because we want to know what we’re in for – or what we will be deprived of – when […]

Sheri’s Rants # 57: FOR FASTER FAT LOSS…

March 3, 2012 by


Results.  That’s what you’re after, right?  You want to know, in as few words as possible, what to do to get the fastest results in the shortest amount of time.  This is the bottom line for anyone wanting to lose weight, right?  The multi-billion dollar diet industry has taught us to spend a lot of […]

Sheri’s Rants # 56: Monkeys, Yoga, and Stinky Fruit

January 1, 2012 by


How do I condense an indescribably transformative month in Bali into a readable-in-one-sitting blog format?  Hmmmm.  Having returned 2 weeks ago, here are my current ideas of the highlights: Within my first 24 hours in Ubud (the spiritual, artistic and cultural center of Bali) I knew I was on a different frequency.  Things didn’t work […]

Sheri’s Rants # 55: Changes to the Table

October 30, 2011 by


Jody from Boise, ID recently returned from a quilting retreat she attends twice a year.  In the past, attending that retreat was a real crash-and-burn for her, food wise.  “There’s a table” she explained “loaded with cookies, candy, soda, all kinds of sugar and crap.  And I don’t know what it is, but everyone brings […]

Sheri’s Rants # 54: Mariah’s Dress

October 1, 2011 by


Human beings resist change.  Good change, bad change – doesn’t matter – our initial response to anything ‘different’ is to balk.  We do this with other races, religions, fashion styles, smells, thinking, foods, forms of travel, languages – so few of us react to something different with a resounding YES!  Individually polled, I like to […]
