Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food

Posted in Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Hippocrates said that way back (somewhere 431 BC). He has obviously been getting dizzy turning over in his grave as more and more centuries have passed only making our food choices and sources less than beneficial, let alone like medicine! Many of us (myself included) get into eating the same foods over and over and […]

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, General, Health

Time to put on your 3D glasses to reach for success. 1: Decision: Everything you do starts in your mind first. Make the decision that you are going to start today. You have to see yourself doing it. Don’t focus on what you feel like, or how you have failed in the past. Yesterday is […]


String on your finger

Posted in Fitness, General

Years ago we used to say “tie a string around your finger” as a reminder of what you need to do, so you don’t forget. Today, I am the string on your finger. I am reminding you to take the necessary steps regarding the decision you may have made after reading my last blog! We […]


On your mark, get set go!

Every day is a new start to the rest of the best of your life. What is it you have always wanted to do? What is it you know you need to stop because it’s an obstacle to what you really want? Take a few moments and reflect on your life, what will happen if […]


Priorities

Posted in General

We all base our priorities on what we believe is most valuable. Our spouse and children usually ranking way up there, then maybe our career. Next possibly our housekeeping, gardening or other hobbies (is housekeeping a hobby?). Without energy and a healthy body it is hard or impossible to take care of the people we […]

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

I’m going to share this as it is written from my “Nourishing Traditions” cookbook loaded with informative and interesting facts.  “Cholesterol is especially important to our brains. That’s right, today’s “most hated” substance is essential to the human brain function. In fact, infants need a constant supply cholesterol during brain development, which is why mother’s […]


Don’t neglect to stretch

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General, Health

When I was younger all I cared about was burning calories and weight control. Aging has taught me many things about priorities. Now my goal is first to feel good. Instead of eating to maintain weight, my number one objective is to eat to maintain optimal health. I don’t believe any one diet can give […]


Skin Care

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

It is the time of year when many people have extra dry skin. I am a firm believer in “we heal from the inside out”, but while you are in that process you may need to choose something topical. I am always for as natural as you can be and avoiding medicines that have side […]


Body Composition

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Food, General

Body composition and body weight have different value. A person could be thin but still have an unhealthy amount of fat because they don’t have a good percentage of muscle.  Muscle is healthy tissue.  Using resistance training is a great way to build muscle mass. There are numerous exercises that can be done to create […]


Benefits of a well balanced life

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

The benefits of eating well and exercising regularly and getting rest far outweigh the alternatives.  If we are burning our candle at both ends, eating on the go and never getting enough restful sleep, eventually we are going to crash and burn.  Quality proteins, I believe best from animal sources, fresh cooked and raw vegetables, […]



“The thing I love about working with Darla is that she’s totally attuned to my strengths and limitations. I’ve always been motivated but Darla’s guidance has helped me focus on what I want to achieve and save a lot of wasted energy. The individual attention and coaching is something that you just can’t expect to get in a group setting.”
