Today marks my kids first day back in school. This is a really odd time of year for me. In one respect I am excited to have a little me time, but I miss my little guys when they are gone all day. Not to mention the relaxing days of... Continue reading

Not sure how to put into words how I am feeling at the moment. How can someone judge you about what you do, when they don't even understand it? Can they read my mind and understand my intermost thoughts? How can they criticize your actions without knowing your reasons? How... Continue reading

I have struggled for years with eating meat, not for any kind of ethical reasons, but I just don't like it. Fitness experts would recommend someone of my body weight... Continue reading

Sunday morning during Pastor Bruce Frank's message, I was given a little reality check. I am allowing life to rob me of my "JOY." We have all read the quote, "don't sweat the small stuff", but do we sweat the small stuff so much that we are drowning in our... Continue reading

Many people I talk to about fitness have numerous questions, but overall the most asked question is: What do you do at the gym? For the ladies who have never experienced the free weight area of the gym, it can be intimidating. For someone who has never lifted weights, the... Continue reading

I love this time of year. This is the season of blooming flowers, growing gardens and outdoor exercise. I am so much happier when I am getting my shoes dirty running on the trail than the boredom of the treadmill. Growing up in the country, my parents always grew a... Continue reading
