Women today are B-U-S-Y. And while we’re rarely willing to slow down for even a minute, we still want to be healthy. We do our best to squeeze in healthy behaviors and make sense of the information that seems to change every day, but sometimes putting all the pieces together to truly THRIVE just feels too hard.
Meet Cherylanne Skolnicki — the voice for busy, health conscious women! With a former corporate career, a growing business, volunteer opportunities, a home, a husband and three young children of her own, Cherylanne really understands the challenges busy women face when they’re trying to be healthy. Fortunately, she’s figured out how to thrive in her own life and she created Nourish to share proven, time-saving solutions with women just like you who want to do the same.
In the past three years, Cherylanne left a 15 year career with Procter & Gamble, became a certified health coach, launched her company, Nourish, worked two other consulting jobs, hired eight people to help her grow her business, sent her oldest daughter to second grade, her son to preschool and gave birth to another daughter (now 2)! She’s done it all while maintaining her personal well-being as a priority and eating just enough chocolate chip cookies to keep her very, very real.
Because if there’s one thing we know about women, it’s that we hate to be preached to by anyone who seems too perfect. Life is messy, and our best teachers can relate to us in all our charming imperfection. That’s Cherylanne. She’s like your savvy girlfriend. You know, the one who knows all about gardening and can break it down for you so that before you know it, you too have a gorgeous plot of tulips blooming in the spring? (Well, maybe not exactly like that because Cherylanne doesn’t know a THING about gardening!) But eating well and nurturing your well-being? That’s her cup of tea…and she’s delighted to share it with you so that you can THRIVE.
So what IS the Nourish Lifestyle? It’s a way of living that allows you to prioritize your personal well being without compromising the other important things in your life. It celebrates food as a pleasure without requiring diets or deprivation. It emphasizes the importance of rest, so that you wake up every day feeling like you can bring your best to the world. It encourages movement so that you stay in touch with your body and what it needs. It nurtures relationships that help you evolve and grow. And it inspires you to strive for stretching goals so that you can fulfill your potential….and thrive!
Cherylanne and her team at Nourish will help you discover exactly what you need to thrive and then will help you find programs and services that save you time and get you healthier.

I’ve been stuck in a blogging black hole for a bit here. Things have been really active at Nourish and at home, so creating space to write something worthwhile seemed impossible. I kept putting “write blog post” on my to do list and then seeing it still not crossed off at the end of each day. Not like me at all.
But, I wasn’t sure I had anything good enough to say. I keep raising the bar when it comes to my own expectations and at some point I think I backed myself into a corner in which no idea seemed worthy of a post.
This morning, I got this post from Seth Godin, a business blogger, who manages to write something EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Overcoming the impossibility of amazing
If you set your bar at “amazing,” it’s awfully difficult to start.
Your first paragraph, sketch, formula, sample or concept isn’t going to be amazing. Your tenth one might not be either.
Confronted with the gap between your vision of perfect and the reality of what you’ve created, the easiest path is no path. Shrug. Admit defeat. Hit delete.
One more reason to follow someone else and wait for instructions.
Of course, the only path to amazing runs directly through not-yet-amazing. But not-yet-amazing is a great place to start, because that’s where you are. For now.
There’s a big difference between not settling and not starting.
That was enough to get me to my laptop. Just starting to type gets the words flowing and the thoughts forming. For me, writing begets writing. The words come more easily as I go.
So too with any habit you are trying to build. You don’t have to be amazing yet, or maybe ever. But you do have to get started. Preferably today.View More Entries
