Is Garlic In Your Medicine Cabinet?

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

There are those of us who believe Garlic to be a superfood and a must in the “medicine” cabinet. If you are a health fanatic like myself, you will already know the many benefits of garlic, but I hope to enlighten some of you who may not be aware of how valuable this spice can be for you and your families health.

I had a DO doctor whose practice used natural health remedies. It was always so enlightening for me to go for an appointment and pick his brain to grasp more tools for keeping my family healthy. He said if you didn’t have garlic coming out of your pours, you we... Read More...

Darla’s 5 diet rules


1. Love yourself first by learning to make healthy choices when you are at social events.Don’t be too concerned with what others may think about what you are or are not eating. . Eating is a part of every social society but if you eat bad you will feel bad and it will effect your health eventually.  Is it worth it? Enjoy the company more than the food.


2. As soon as you get up each morning drink a glass of water to break the fast and flush the kidneys. Make water a priority throughout the day.  Work on consuming at least 8 gl... Read More...

What your body needs versus what you may want to eat?

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

I worked for a woman many years ago who was very dedicated to good nutrition and taking herbs and vitamins. She had shared her expertise with her family and with the community through her business and regular monthly meetings. I was very fortunate to be able to learn many things from her. She has since passed and now I really wish I had taken more advantage of her knowledge.

She had a great grandson who was very young when I worked for her. He had been invited to a birthday party and had been offered a cupcake. When asked if he would like one his response was “well I would, but my... Read More...

Can you connect how you feel with how you have been eating?

Posted in Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

I’m sure you have heard the saying “you are what you eat!”  I really do believe there is truth in that, but what does it mean to most of us today? Have you ever noticed how you feel after you eat certain things? Do you ever feel down or depressed for no apparent reason? Do you feel sluggish and tired again when you feel you should be feeling good because you got enough sleep? I propose to you that you “feel what you eat,” and maybe if that becomes real to you, your food selections will be a reflection of your desire to feel vibrant and energized and excited about eac...

How can omega-3 fatty acids and their essential benefits!

Posted in Exercise, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Another name for Omega-3 Fatty Acids is Essential Fatty Acids. Essential by definition means absolutely necessary, extremely important. I was raising my oldest children during the 80’s when everything you read told you to cut fat out of your diet. I gave son number 2 skim milk based on what I was reading at the time, not a great idea. I have often thought of a saying about the pendulum, it swings from one side all the way over to the other before landing in middle ground.  I feel like the new information regarding good fats is a bit extreme. encouraging an over consumption of good fats....

Something Old and Something New to become a Healthier You!

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

It is the Information Age and there is always new science when it comes to diet and exercise. All this information can be conflicting and overwhelming. I feel very confident that if you stick with some old school common sense like drink plenty of water, eat a balance, (I say that a lot) you can then take some of the new information and see how it fits. I do not believe everyone should be doing exactly the same thing for exercise or diet. While I can generalize anatomy and physiology, the structure and function of the body, I cannot say that all bodies respond the same to the same movements or ... Read More...

Do holidays equal unwanted calories?

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

It used to be said that from Thanksgiving until New Years the average person could put on 5 pounds due to all the gatherings abounding in varieties of goodies. Do I dare start with the long list of carbs that are at the average Thanksgiving table? Dinner and dessert would probably add up to the amount of calories many people need to cover two days worth of eating. Not to sound negative and take all the fun out of the holidays, but is it really that fun when your clothes don’t fit? Or when you don’t feel well because you put your body into an unhealthy state with all the sugars from... Read More...

Are you being thankful for the body you have been given?!

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this blog. I hope to inspire you to make a healthy change today for a better tomorrow. I got a new car this spring and I have been trying to take good care of it. I did something dumb the other day because I was in a rush and I opened the hatch at the same time the garage door was opening, that may not mean anything unless you know the height of the garage door does not allow clearance for that and I put some scratches in my new paint, sad face. It’s a car and the “new” can’t last forever, but I was hoping it would last lo... Read More...

Are you children active?

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition

One of my specialties is working with preschool age children. I created a program I call “Super Sport Day”, check out my web page if you want to know more about it. I’m very passionate about getting children introduced and excited about exercise and nutrition. In our sedentary society, technology has captured the youngest children and it is one of the reasons for the decline in children being active.

The obesity rates for children have increased greatly as activity in and out of school has decreased. Childhood obesity is very real as well as type... Read More...

Exercise and Eating Right without the Confusion

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Run, no don’t run, walk, no, that is not enough, eat meat no be vegan and eat for the planet. REALLY??? If you are the average hard working person who has little time to find the facts through all the verbiage then I hope to offer you some simple solutions. This is my soap box being a Christian I believe all food is good when set apart by prayer and thanksgiving, but I don’t believe everything you can eat is food! If it is food, truly, unprocessed and real then I believe you can eat everything in moderation. I have an eating plan that has a lists Food Categories: v... Read More...

“Darla is a great trainer and fitness coach. When I first became a client, I was recovering from a shoulder injury. She made sure my routine was appropriate and continued to coach me to greater levels of stamina and strength. And, the cool thing is that she truly cares about what I want to accomplish. Now four years later, my doctor informed me that my “age markers” were those of someone 20 years younger than my chronological age.”... Read More...
