Healthy Living: Stay Hydrated

Easy to read signs that your body is dehydrated. It is almost summer and that means we get to enjoy all those beautiful long summer days – especially where I live with the springs, rivers, lakes and so much more.  From sunrise to sunset, we are outside playing, swimming, walking, hiking, camping, fishing, and so much more. Just as important as the sunscreen we make sure...

Healthy Living: Can Your Thoughts Affect Your Health?

The Answer?  Yes Your Thoughts May Affect Your Health. Until about 5 years ago, every year like clockwork during the fall/winter months, I would get sick with the flu. Sometimes so sick that it would literally knock me on my butt for almost a week.  The thing is I could never figure out why I would be feeling fine one day then WHAM knocked off my...

Want to know the key to weight loss success?

Every week, I receive several emails and messages from people wanting to know how to be successful at losing weight. The thing is that weight loss success is not the result of doing one thing. It’s also not something that will happen in one day – you have to be consistent and stick with it especially when it gets tough.  Fact of the matter is...

Heath secret? Just keep moving!

Is there really a health secret? This weekend, I spent Saturday lost and confused in the woods with three great friends – Laura Barclay, Toni Greenburg, and Becky Skipper.  Actually we were competing in an Adventure Race at Hart Springs in Bell, Florida and we weren’t really lost but being lost is part of the fun – and laughter. There is nothing better than laughing...

Exercise Takes A Village Some Days

Exercise Takes A Village Some Days I’ll be honest.  This morning I felt older than Moses as I was running/power walking to finish my 8th half marathon – my 2nd Tallahassee half marathon – with my Jasper friend Toni Greenberg. I actually love this marathon route although we heard quite a few grumblings and rumblings about the hills. For me the hills are an advantage...

One Size Does NOT Fit All

One Size Does NOT Fit All

How many times have you heard or seen the phrase “one size fits all.”  And how many times have you found that phrase to be not true? I know I have personally proven that phrase so wrong. Seriously.  Do we really think we can find a dress or a pair of pants that will fit ALL of us? Not going to happen.  We are all...

Fabulous is not a size.

Fabulous is not a size – it’s a feeling! Let me ask you a question – what is holding you back from being the healthiest person that you can be? Think a moment.  Is it you? Do you think people will look at you when you take a walk?  Worried about what people are saying when you are in the grocery store?  Do you feel...

Walk this way!

Walk this way!

Walk this way, walk this way Aerosmith 1975 That used to be one of my favorite songs.  Didn’t really remember the lyrics though until I looked them up for this article.  Needless to say, the one sentence above will be all that I write today but I still love this song and classic rock. One thing I can say about walking is that it is...

Healthy Living: Health or Healing? What choice will you make?

Healthy Living: Health or Healing? What choice will you make?

Prevention or pray for miracles? Prescription drugs versus cauliflower.  Taking a walk versus sitting on the couch while channel surfing and snacking.  Sometimes it is the way things are said that finally gets through to us and we have an ‘aha’ moment. Today in church (Melody Church, Live Oak, Florida), Pastor Darrin said something that really hit home with me and I thought I would share...
