I know you know what I mean. Earlier in the week, I did something new that I'll share. I participated in my … Read more about Videos for Information and Inspiration
I've said it before. Eating healthy doesn't have to come from expensive grocery stores and doesn't have to take up all of your time concocting every single thing from scratch. I did a quick run into my local Publix yesterday and came out with some great shortcuts to share. I love to have … Read more about Shortcuts from the Grocery Store

I often talk about books and my love for reading. It is something I've loved for as long as I can remember. I can still picture evenings at home while I was growing up with my family. I would be on the right end of the sofa, my brother on the love seat, my dad in his recliner and my mom in her … Read more about What I’ve Read Lately. . . Part I
I have begun to embrace "Rest Days" during the week. I teach classes Monday through Friday these days and when I teach I have a hard time NOT doing the workout if it is in a group fitness setting.

It hit me so deeply to the core that I stopped dead in my tracks, jerking poor Eli back in the process. … Read more about Why Turning 50 Scares the *&%^ Out of Me
One of my favorite fitness gadget discoveries is the Running Buddy. I shared about this great little product HERE.

Since I … Read more about Running Buddy ‘s Newest Products . . . A Review
My Memorial Day has been quiet and it was what I needed. While I love people and being with people, sometimes I think I'm actually an introvert and need time alone to recharge. The day began really early with a son's baseball game and then I taught an interval class today at our Y. It was a good … Read more about Always Learning . . .To Stay Young
On Sunday afternoon I decided I was going to have a Pity Party just for myself. I thought that after church and taking care of some really sad family business I would take to the bed for a while. Then maybe I would think about some good, comfort foods to have for dinner. I even thought that it … Read more about Having a Pity Pary . . . .or my attempt at throwing my own party
The Seasons have definitely begun to change where I am. There is a wonderful crispness in the air, clear blue skies and the leaves are beginning to fall. The change makes me think about the different seasons, how folks relate to them and find their favorite. This time of year, Fall, was always a … Read more about What’s Your Season?
At long last the mountain has been moved. The mountain from our old home of 11 years to our new home ~ Actually (this is where a comma should be placed but I haven't had the time to purchase a new keyboard with a working comma so bear with me and know that there should be commas in this post) most … Read more about The Mountain has Moved . . .and things I’ve learned
