"I never set out to be a leader, I set out to make a difference"

I did it. I finally made an appointment for the dreaded colonoscopy. I know, I know,  the procedure is easy, breezy,  it’s the prep that sucks.  Trust me, I’m not counting the days until I get there. To be honest,  I could care less about the prep, the taste, the potty runs, I’m struggling more […]
Me: We need to talk. Let’s have a seat, this conversation is long overdue. For years you did everything I wanted. You got up every morning without pain or creaks. You ran up and down stairs with little effort. We took an exercise class and you responded with the good kind of sore which prompted […]
  My friend and I were out for breakfast the other day and we started talking about the importance of self-care. We discussed friends our age that due to self-care negligence are suffering from a number of maladies. We then discussed the perception by others that just because we both work out doesn’t mean we […]
  We’ve all got that friend. Or  maybe, you’re that friend. The one that effortlessly puts together outfits no matter what the occasion and always looks fantastic. Whether it’s a quick run to the store, or out for a casual evening with friends, every outfit is fab and flawless. How do they do it? There […]
This past week the cat was let out of the bag, Julie Chen had plastic surgery. Apparently someone had some explaining to do and it seems the  best explanation was racism. Chen said that getting her eyes done (upon further review, the nose is not the same either, but I digress) was because of a […]
  In 2008, I voted for Barack Obama. Political preferences aside, I voted for 2 simple things (yes there were others) but it was hope and change. It was my hope that his appointment as President was an indicator that racism might be fading and perhaps our country would focus on the possibilities versus the […]
Let’s stop the whining and the “its not fair”, and get on with it!   When I was raising my kids there was this disturbing culture in children’s sports, everyone wins. As a young, naive Mom I went along with it. No matter what happened during a game, no matter who screwed up, everybody got […]
      When I owned my training studio, I would often tell my clients that exercise is not a punishment, it’s a privilege. My clients would give me an odd look as ask, “How’s it a privilege? It’s not fun.” Well, I suppose it’s all in how you look at it. I am one […]
The other day I was doing some research for a client. I was researching healthy snack ideas for diabetics. I was absolutely shocked when I came across this page . The list offers the top 25 snacks for diabetics. It was written by two R.D.’s so one would assume the the list is solid.  Boy, was […]
This past week I had a very dear friend come and spend a few days. The few days she was here were precious to me. There is truly no greater laughter than between two good friends that know each other so well. I find that over the years, it is laughter that tends to direct […]
