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!

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

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 […]


“cholesterol” from Tom Valentine, Facts on Fats and oils

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

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, […]


September 1, 2015

Posted in Fitness, General, Health

I can’t believe it is September already, 3/4 of another year like a flash.  Just an important reminder that life is so precious. I have 4 wonderful sons and a beautiful daughter in law. I have a terrific husband and he also has great children and grandchildren.  I have already eaten some good for me […]


Summer Fun

Posted in General

I love warm weather and all of the outdoor activities that we can do much more than winter! I love playing basketball and tennis with my husband and my children when I can get them out there. My husband and I have a lot of fun together (we are not very good, but laughter is […]
