Are you strong enough?
02 May 2016

Are you strong enough?

One of the biggest misconceptions about strength training that women have are  “I don’t want to bulk up.” or “I don’t want to look like a guy.”  Or my favorite “I won’t lift over 3 pounds because I’ll get too bulky.”  Well guess what? That means you will not be able to pick up a gallon of milk, move a chair or even pick up...

Creating Healthy Habits

Several years back, I adopted two rescue horses – BlackJack is an off the track thoroughbred and LadyBug is a quarter horse.  A few years later, Bootsie, came along and she is another off the track thoroughbred.  If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would be the owner of three horses, I would have looked at you like you had three...

Battle Of The Belly Bulge

Did you know that when women and men are asked what is their least favorite body part, the most common answer is their mid-section?  Tummy. Belly. Muffin top.  Aren’t these such cute names for what is really belly fat or belly bulge?  Might be cute names but not a cute topic to talk about.  The fact of the matter is that reducing belly fat is...

Your body hears EVERYTHING your mind thinks.

Your body hears EVERYTHING your mind thinks.

Carefully guard your thoughts because your body hears everything your mind thinks! I’m an avid reader and many times have three or four books that I’m reading at the same time.  My Kindle is one thing that travels with me wherever I go. Once in a while, a book reaches me at a deeper level.  The book that has touched me this week is “The Power...

What is a calorie? How many calories should you eat?

What is a calorie? How many calories should you eat?

Any one trying to lose a few pounds has counted calories at one time or another.  Those little buggers are everywhere!  A few of my favorite jokes for the definition of calories: “Calories – Noun.  Tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a bit tighter every night.” or “If stress burned calories, I’d be a supermodel.” Calories are energy and our...

How To Eat Clean And Healthy On A Budget

I think I hear “I can’t afford to eat clean.” or “I can’t afford to eat healthy.” at least once a day. Every time I hear these statements, I think to myself it’s more expensive to eat processed foods than it is to eat healthy. You can choose a fast food burger meal up-sized for $7 or choose to roast a chicken for $8( Click...

5 steps to a healthier you!

Beginning or restarting a healthy lifestyle can be pretty intimidating.  We all have preconceived notions of what healthy “looks like” – to ourselves and to others.  Keeping that in mind, it’s best for so many reasons to ease into an exercise routine.  The most important reason is to avoid injury. When you have not been doing any activity on a regular basis, your body is...

Fabulous is not a size.

I’d like to ask you this question: how do you feel right now? This moment?  Think about it for a moment before you answer.  Okay?  Good?  Great? Not so hot?  If your answer is okay or not so hot, why did you answer that way?  What do you consider before you answer the question? Unfortunately for many of us, our answers when asked how we...

Fitness is not one size fits all.

Fitness is not one size fits all.

This past week, Mattel reintroduced Barbie in a variety of new shapes and sizes.  My first thought?  “HALLELUJAH!”  After all Barbie is 57 years old this year – it’s about time that we acknowledge that not everyone is the same. Barbie has been a staple in little girls hearts for many decades but has also prompted just as many comments on how fake she looks.  After...
