Rethink Fitness and Food

  The other night my daughter had her first musical theatre audition. In recent months my husband and I have discovered her incredible singing talent. I decided to foster this gift and massage her into something where she can flourish. She’s an artist and often dabbles in things for short periods before losing interest. She doesn’t really harness that stick-to-it-ness even when she enjoys something. I wasn’t going to let   Read More ...

  Here is a peek into my latest article on Bodybuilding.com. Head over to the site for the full article plus a 4-day workout that you can use for 4-6 weeks.    No ifs, ands, or buts: If you want a nice butt, you must train for it.

After five hours of typing, I break to water the garden and tend the chickens. It’s nice to finally venture outside, even if it’s just for chores.  I end up back at my desk, writing a few plans, answering emails, and balancing my budget. Now 7 hours into my workday, it’s time to take another break before finishing up a few small details and starting my evening chores—oh, and of   Read More ...

    The other night I sat on the porch pitting cherries with my son Ellis. My daughter Gwyn and her friends surrounded us, sharing stories from school and writing notes to boys they would never actually share. I taught my son different ways to pit a cherry, but we both found that using our fingers worked best. For him, it was a treat to squirt juice at the girls.   Read More ...

I can see you from the corner of my eye as you glide along the elliptical trainer. You’re curious, no doubt. But something prevents you from wandering out of the cardio section into the weight room. It’s not your place—a woman’s world, I mean. Sweat pools left behind on benches and racks stacked with bending bars loaded to the max. Tinny cords of Metallica spill from headphones, only to be   Read More ...

You had family stay with you for a week. With all the cooking, cleaning, and entertaining your workouts got pushed to the wayside. Then your kids were sick, you’re a/c went out, and your boss asked you to work overtime to finish a project. All this stress built up over the course of two weeks and once you finally got back in the gym, you tweak your low back during   Read More ...

  I just returned from a 2-day excursion to Wine Country for our anniversary. I am far from a wine aficionado. Don’t get me wrong; I certain enjoy a good libation. But give me a $9 bottle of chardonnay and I’m happy. Nevertheless, this trip was nothing short of spectacular. Napa and Sonoma are such pristine, peaceful places to visit. You really feel like you are in another world when   Read More ...

A few months back, Kate from Nayad Aqua Sports Wear contacted me about her suits. She sent me one of her custom swimwear outfits to test out and I absolutely love it. I am not a big shopper at all, and swimsuit shopping is the pits. Nothing ever fits correctly. So, when Kate told me her suits are made to order, I couldn’t resist accepting her offer. The process was   Read More ...

Sadly, money directly relates to our personal health. We stress about finances all the time, so taking steps to help prevent an overly stressful financial future for your kids will also give them a little more health   Read More ...
