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

To cross-train or not to cross-train – that is the question. Last Thursday, I had an absolute blast with the Suwannee High School Bulldogs Football Team. The team attended football camp held at Dog Pound Health and Fitness and I was blessed to be able to join them. This is one amazing group of kids.  My fellow Zumba instructor, Dena Miller, and myself had smiles...

Healthy Living: Start your day on schedule.

Healthy Living: Start your day on schedule. Ring, ring, ring, RING!  Alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. and literally sounds like it’s screaming WAKE-UP at you every time it rings. Hit the snooze a few times then finally get out of bed about 6:30.  You have barely opened your eyes but you are already battling the clock. Shuffle to the bathroom and get in the...

Right now, I cannot remember who mentioned this in class but it’s credited to Joseph Pilates. So what exactly does it mean to be only as young as your spine?  It means...

Healthy Living: Remember the big picture.

Starving yourself? Exercising your body into exhaustion?  Feeling tired? Maybe it’s time to remember the big picture when it comes to your health. After all, we were designed to feel amazing not to feel like we can barely get out of bed in the morning. Often during my fitness classes, we chat about anything and everything. I have learned so much from the folks in the...

Healthy Living: Keep It Simple

We have all heard the phrase K.I.S.S.  – Keep It Simple Silly.  This phrase is perfect when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle.   Yes we may have goals of losing weight or completing an event such as a marathon or triathlon. However placing our final goal as our main goal could actually derail us. Think about it.  If someone tells you that you have to...

Healthy Living: Determination

Determination is what will get you through the rough patches when you stumble. Mother’s Day was this past weekend so I decided to take it easy and enjoy the morning.  Filled my cup with coffee, called the dogs and got comfy in my rocking chair on the back porch while watching the sunrise. Porch sitting is definitely one of my favorite things to do. Birds...
