Dear Paula, First of all, thanks for your years of smiles and serious comfort food. Thank you for your inspirational journey that got you where you are today.

I’ve spent the last 25 years of my life working to inspire people to get healthy through exercise and sound nutrition. However, the challenge with my job is that not everyone wants to get healthy as much as they want to lose weight. Over the years, we have put such emphasis on weight loss that […]
I don’t know about you, but I’m so tired of the celebrity diet ambush that seems to be on every other television commercial. Hey, don’t get me wrong, Jennifer Hudson, rockin’ it (but her heavier self is off key at the end of the commercial, notice that?), Marie Osmond (8 brothers and she’s the only […]
As the new year approaches,  gyms start gearing up for the onslaught of seasonal exercisers, while diet programs click their heels in glee, the money season is upon them, CHA-CHING!

A bit of some pie, a slice of the cake, January's coming, resolutions I’ll then make. I won’t worry now, what time I would waste, I won’t eat that much, simply a taste. I promised myself, I’d diet next year, I promise I will, you’re reading it here.In the scheme of things, what’s a pound or two? I’ve lost it before, I’m sure you have too!
As we  shift in to the frenzied holiday season, healthy intentions are left behind. Once the chaos of the holidays takes control of our lives,  January 1st is the day of salvation. But you know, and I know,  New Year’s resolutions rarely have lasting power. Granted, we’re far away from January 1st, however many people […]
