Yes, there is snow in the forecast for this morning where I live, but I won’t let it dampen my joy in welcoming the season of renewal and … [Read more…]

Positive self talk….it’s where it’s at.  Do you do it?  Do you spend your time telling yourself positive things or do you spend your time saying negative things? I’m fat, my calves are too big for riding boots, I have a muffin top, my arms are flabby, I can’t run fast, I am a bad … [Read more…]

I was having a conversation with my mother, it went something like this: “I ran into my old friend at the convention,” my mom continues, “she said her daughter is doing well, but she weighs (insert weight that many beautiful woman weigh here) and is a bigger girl.” I was horrified.  Why on … [Read more…]

Sometimes I feel like the universe knows just what to tell me at just the right time. This week it came in the form of the reminder: Be nice to yourself. I have felt so bogged down between graduate school-essays, tests, homework, reading, more reading- work, finding someone to sublet my room (I’m … [Read more…]

The past year leading up to turning 60 has been an amazing journey of discovery and learning. I’ve learned that it is okay to think about myself and take care of myself. I’ve learned that in that process, you sometimes have to make some hard decisions. I’ve learned that if it feels right, it … [Read more…]

Positive thinking in a negative world can be very challenging, but there is evidence all around us that shows us that being an optimist instead of a pessimist can be life changing. If you are following along with the 52 Small Changes challenge that we are having this year, you saw some of the … [Read more…]

If you’ve been with The Sisterhood for a while, you know that we’re pretty big sticklers on what we put in our bodies – in moderation, of course. Hellooooooo weekend wine (or delicious treat of your choice). But what about what we put on the outside of our bodies? According to the Environmental … [Read more…]

Scientists have shown, repeatedly, that for some of us food acts like a drug on our brain. It causes all the same neural pathways to light up, it gradually takes more and more food to produce the same effect, and it’s very, very hard to quit. In fact, if you feel like your life won’t have as much … [Read more…]

Re-posted from July 2013. Every year on New Year’s Eve, I sit down and I set some goals for myself. I refuse to make what everyone else calls resolutions. I have had too many years where I have failed at those rotten things and then felt horrible about myself because of it. This year, I set a … [Read more…]

  Lately, I’ve been looking at the routines of my life and trying to fine tune the things that I do daily, so that I can get more things done in each day and yet still have some much needed down time at the end of the day. I’m finding that the older I get the more I crave the routine in my … [Read more…]

Being the older sister here doesn’t mean that I know it all. As a matter of fact, some days I feel like I know very little about this quest for health and fitness. But, some days I find inspiration in all kinds of places. Today’s post is inspired by a former preschool mom who is on her own quest … [Read more…]
