Imagine my surprise when I remembered at 10:50 p.m. on February 15 that I have a post due in about eight hours. It has been a very busy day. It was my granddaughter’s baptism. She was beautiful and we had a wonderful day and night till right now. Let me tell you friends….I got nothing […]

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 […]

On February 10, 2011, I shared the story of my friend Nicki and her fight with heart disease. February is National Heart Month, but most especially, it is Go Red for Women Month. I wanted to go back and visit with Nicki and update you on how awesome she is and how she is getting […]

I don’t know about you, but I have days when I get so frustrated with my weight loss or lack of weight loss that I find myself blaming my metabolism. It’s got be my metabolism. It’s got to be slow. Of course, I have never gone and checked this out. It is just my assumption. […]

I love all the possibility the new year holds. If you are like me, you have rededicated yourself to fitness. There are so many things out there to help us along and motivate us. I found one a year or so ago that I really love. It’s called EveryMove and it’s awesome! EveryMove is a […]

2014…the beginning of another year of trying to accomplish our fitness and health goals. We can do it. We really can. We just have to want it bad enough. We have to want to stop stuffing our faces with chips and cookies and french fries. We have to want to exercise. We have to want […]

The start of a new year has always found me looking for new inspirations. Looking for new ways to achieve my goals. Just looking for that certain something to get me started in the new year. I found lots of things over the last few weeks, but there is one thing that I keep going […]

So….there are four days left in 2013. It’s that time of year when we reassess what we’ve done this year and what we will change next year. Every year, I set the same goal as the year before. I will lose weight and get in shape. Every year, I get a little closer to that […]

We are at the time of the year when everyone is taking pictures all the time. If you are anything like me, you are the one taking the pictures. Rarely, if ever, am I the one in front of the camera. Actually, I should say “was I”. I had every excuse known to man for […]

Back in December of 2011, I had the pleasure of doing an email interview with Ali Vincent. I had met her the November before when she did an appearance for the local hospital. She was amazing and inspiring. I loved every minute of that night listening to her talk about her life with Biggest Loser […]

After posts about my injury and what I can’t do, I am so excited to declare this Toot Your Horn Tuesday because I have something to be happy about. I am still about a week away from getting my inserts for my shoes, but things are finally beginning to get a little better with my […]

It’s that time of year when we start to get a little nostalgic. It’s when we begin to remember the past year and all the things that came with it. It’s that time of year when we become thankful more so than other times of the year. We talked about being thankful with our preschoolers […]

It’s time for True Confessions. Let me be the first to say that I haven’t done my best the past few weeks. I’m not proud of it, but I’m fessing up and telling the truth. True confession is good for the soul, right? As some of you know, I’m dealing with some tendonitis in my […]

The doctor sat at his desk writing. He turned around, handed me a paper and said, “Go home and Google this. You know you’ll do it anyway”. The paper said tibial posterior tendonitis and I did go home and Google it. Per The American Health Network…. Description Tendonitis can be a common problem in the […]

It’s fall here in northwest Indiana and for the life of me, I don’t see how people live where you don’t get to see these beautiful color changes. I’m sure many of you will say you don’t see how I can live where we have the extreme winters that we can have. I guess it’s […]
