It is wonderful to be grateful and to sing your praises, Lord Most High! –Psalms 92:1

If you haven’t done it lately, I challenge you to name 10 things that you are grateful for.  I’ll start (in no particular order):

  1. Life

  2. Health

  3. A strong body

  4. Amazing ch...

We are just days away from my most favorite holiday of the year (besides my birthday – okay that’s not a holiday but you know what I mean!):  Thanksgiving!  I love love love Thanksgiving.  It’s something about the smells of Thanksgiving and the gathering of all my love...

We are in the final quarter of 2019.  Believe it or not, now is the time to start thinking about your 2020 fitness goals.  Not December 31st but now!  What are you going to do differently in 2020?  The new year always gives us a chance to have a fresh start.  We get ex...

Welcome to November.  We have reached the fourth quarter of the year.  Not only are we less than two months away from the end of the year but we are also less than two months away from the end of a decade.

It is my 55th birthday and I am celebrating in the Smokey Mountains.  I have spent the last three days being pampered with facials, massages, body scrubs, yoga, fresh air, French press coffee and of course, wine.  No television and limited social media.  Just me and my...

I should have been a carpenter or in construction because I am an expert at building walls.

Emotional walls, that is.  Walls that intentionally keep people at a distance.  I mind my own business, I encourage others to do the same and I am fiercely protective of my space...

As I write this, I am heading into the last week of my job at the fitness center.  Three more shifts and I am done.  I think this is probably the first job that I have resigned from in more than 30 years of working that I wasn’t leaving because of some issue.  Issues l...

Five years ago I wanted to become a personal trainer.  Partly because I had a personal trainer and I adored him.  He taught me how to navigate my way through the weight room, the grocery store and my kitchen.  I was able to rise to a level of health and happiness that...

For the past few years I have gotten up at 4:20am every Tuesday and Thursday morning in order to meet with a group of women to run.  We meet at a designated location and we … run.  The number in the group fluctuates – sometimes there are 3-4 and sometimes there are 15+...
