Strengthen your core...without crunches

Strengthen your core…without crunches

It’s almost swim suit season. I don’t know about you, but my six pack is nowhere to be found and is probably still hibernating (and has been for years). In lieu of warmer weather and springtime clothes, it’s time to start focusing on my core. Our core is responsible for providing stability to our entire […]

Walking vs. Running

Walking vs. Running: Which is better? While this may be the million dollar question, the reality is that it all comes down to what you want to accomplish.

Just Walk

You know how you sign up to be on an email list and then your box is flooded with stuff you don’t even look at? That’s how it was with me. Every night, I would delete, delete, delete email after email without even looking at them. In one of my new goals for the new […]

The Older Sister Talks Menopause Fitness

Christy tipped me off to a website to check out for all of us “older” sisters. It’s called Changings Ways from Estroven and it is really great. There is tons of information on there. They have workout plans and workout schedules. There are workout videos. My favorite though was the workout tips by Deb Horn. […]

Fitness for Women Over 40

  Fitness for women over 40 is something I keep hearing a lot about lately. Maybe that’s because I’m approaching 50 and I have been looking more and more about how to take care of my aging body to make sure I am as healthy and fit as I can be.  I have 10 year […]

Habits and Routines: the good, the bad & the quirky

Habits. Routines. Traditions. We all have them. When it comes to health, fitness and nutrition, they can be good, bad and downright weird. Whether you listen to the same soundtrack during your workout or have a specific, nightly cup of tea to ensure slumber, these patterns trigger reassurance, motivation and comfort. We are a routine […]

What If….

What If seems to be a big issue with me lately so I thought I would address it for today’s post. What if usually takes me down a road I don’t want to get into, but sometimes it is a good path. The first place I almost always start with when I am asking ‘what […]

The Older Sister / I Was You Once

Do you remember what it was like when you were first starting your fitness journey? I started my journey at home. I watched what I ate and I walked. I did some wii games like the wii Fit and the Jillian Michaels one. There was no way that I was going to any studio or […]
