Burgers and Fries

Posted in Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Most of us Americans grew up eating burgers and fries whether made at home or bought from a fast-food variety and many of us still love a good burger. In the ’80s much of the facts you heard about nutrition were that fat was bad and carbs were good because they had no fat! What! […]


Set some good goals for 2020

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

Let’s talk about the pancreas! Yep, I know that sounds exciting right. What’s my motto…or at least one of them, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.  So what do I need the pancreas for when I can just fix my hair and makeup and look good on the outside?? As I […]


Them bones, them bones

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Many of us spend a lot of time and money to take care of our appearance. That is not a bad thing! I know when I was a teenager the things that mattered most, that zit on my nose and how to get rid of it! Now that I’m in my fifties I am more […]


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 […]


“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 […]


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 […]


Nutrition is King

Posted in Fitness, Food, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Letting nutrition be king over just a craving is essential to maintaining optimal health and wellness. In America taste is all the rage while in some unfortunate places many people lack even having enough food, let alone the right foods. While America is rich in options we are poor with our selection. I hope to […]


Nutritional Support

Posted in Food, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

How important is proper nutrition? Let’s start with the cardiovascular syste. It needs the B vitamins in balance to protect the heart by reducing homocysteine levels in the blood (homocysteine is a common amino acid found in the blood, high levels are related to early development of heart and blood vessel disease). Arteries and nerve […]


Patience is Positive

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

Patience is such a positive quality to possess. I know I have a long way to go myself in learning to employ it. It is a valuable tool when we have dreams and visions for any area in our lives. I recently read a small book called “Stop Treating Disease, Start Building Health by Steven […]


Impressionable children

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

I have had the privilege of working at Forever Friends Day Care with a group of beautiful children, not to mention their wonderful teachers. I am so excited and humbled to be part of an environment that really wants the best for the children. I’m sure they are one of many. The children and I […]



Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
