Healthy Living: Be The Boss Of Your Body

Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. Jim Rohn When you read that quote, it really puts things into perspective doesn’t it?  Our bodies are amazing but there is a tipping point if you do not take care of it and illness may set in.  Where will you go when that happens?  You cannot magically move into another body. ...

Healthy Living: Do as I say and now I do as I say too.

Healthy living means I also have to follow the rules. My goal is to live life fully with an optimistic attitude and share this attitude with those I meet.  The past few months, however, have been quite interesting for me. Challenging even. Challenging enough that I finally sucked it up and made a doctor appointment that I went to last week. You know.  Me. The...

Healthy Living: Exercise Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

I want to be healthy but exercise is boring! A week ago found me in Augusta, Georgia watching my brother complete his first half Ironman.  A half Ironman distance is 70.3 miles and includes 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride and finishes with a 13.1 (half-marathon) run. My mom and I drove up to meet my brother and his wife. We were the support...

Stressed Equals Desserts?

Stressed Equals Desserts?

Ever notice that desserts is stressed spelled backwards?    So does that mean stressed equals we can eat desserts? Whew! What a crazy week we had in North Florida.  When you look at the big picture though, we were truly blessed that Ms. Hurricane Irma lost strength before arriving in Suwannee County. We are not out of the woods yet as hurricane season runs through...

Ack! Is that really in the kitchen? How to eat clean.

Ready to make some changes to your nutrition but have some questions?  “What is clean eating?” “Where do I start?” How do you eat clean?”  It can be confusing at first especially when making lifestyle changes.  Once you get the basics in place, it is actually much easier to eat clean than you might think.  If there were just one tip I would like to...

Why Your Glass Needs To Be Half Full

Why Your Glass Needs To Be Half Full

Do you know why your glass needs to be half full? Which of the following statements do you connect most with? The optimist says the glass is half full. The pessimist says the glass is half empty. The realist says the glass contains half the required amount of liquid for it to overflow. For me I connect with the first statement and am fairly optimistic about most things in life. Yes once in a while something...

Healthy Reasons To Exercise

Exercise? WHY do we have to exercise? As it turns out, there are quite a few healthy reasons to exercise. One of the most common reasons given and one I hear often for why people don’t exercise is time. Or actually lack of time.  After all, we are busy.  VERY busy.  And with this busyness, our priorities get out of whack. You know you should...

Holy BMR Batman!

Wonder what Batman’s BMR would have been? The old Adam West and Batman TV series has an almost cult-like following. For me, I preferred Robin over Batman but when the series launched in 1966, I would have been five years old. Those that are not children born in the 50’s or 60’s, may not be familiar with the old school TV show Batman but it...

Healthy Living: It’s All About That Core.

Because it’s all about that core, bout that core. (Hummed to the tune of “It’s All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainer) A few years back, Meghan Trainer launched her hit  “It’s All About That Bass”.  I loved that song because I like that she is different from other pop singers. Uniqueness always appeals to me because my motto has always been one size doesn’t...

Healthy Living: Why We ALL Need To Cross-train

This is one amazing group of kids.  My fellow Zumba instructor, Dena Miller, and myself had smiles...
