Hi, I'm Cheryl! 

I live in beautiful Ithaca, New York with my husband Chad, our son Jace and Wicket the Shih Tzu!  I enjoy hiking in the gorges, spending time with my family, and teaching fitness classes!  I have served on a few local committees promoting healthy communities, and taught college Health classes.  It is so important to me to live a healthy lifestyle and to help others be as healthy as they can be.

My Approach:

What is Mindful Eating?

Mindful eating is when you apply Mindfulness principles to your eating habits.  You slow down and become present in the moment, honoring your natural hunger and fullness cues, and noticing how certain foods make you feel.  Mindful eating also involves learning about what drives you to eat.  Is it real hunger or is it stress or boredom?  This way of eating aims to help you become more aware of your food choices (without judgement) so you can better nourish your body.

I know balancing career and family is no easy task. Being a working mom comes with so much joy, but also so much exhaustion!  It can feel nearly impossible to find the time and energy for workouts and healthy food planning.   

You are in the right place if:

  • you feel sluggish, irritable and out of shape

  • your food cravings are out of control

  • you want to stop stress eating

  • you often resort to poor food choices when you haven’t planned ahead. 

Imagine how amazing your life would be if you could become more fit, strong, and confident!

You can, but diets, cleanses, and extreme workouts are not the answer! 

Those types of approaches may work for a while, but are hard to keep up with long-term, and can even be detrimental to your health.  When you work with me, you create healthy habits for life using easy to implement eating and stress reduction strategies, and fitness you actually enjoy!
