I don’t usually encourage political banter during my training sessions. In fact, I will often point out that politics serve only to divide the client/trainer relationship. However, I was recently reading a news website and fell upon an article that explains Donald Trump’s views on exercise… And…I can’t not respond…I just can’t! From the article […]Continue Reading...

Have you ever heard of the Danish word/concept called “Hygge?” It is a Danish philosophy that celebrates Winter. From visitdenmark.com, hygge is: “creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people.” I have mentioned in the past that I dread Winter, but as of last year, I have begun to not […]Continue Reading...

A couple of years ago, I took on my first vegetable garden. In previous years I had watched my husband start the garden and, as the Summer became busy, it would turn into a weedy mess. Usually after the weeds would take over, I would reluctantly go in and help bring it back to life. One […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
When I ran a 13.1 half marathon in 2013, I was emphatic that I would NEVER do it again…and, then, my husband asked if I would run one with him… I was initially very nervous. However, after I thought about it, I got excited! After all, we’ve completed at least a few half marathons on our trips together in the past […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Confession: I used to hate Winter. Each year, after all the beautiful Autumn leaves were finally settled on the ground, I would begin to dread what was next to fall: snow. I would dread my cold feet and hands, the sound of the wind howling around my living room, and the end of the days of sun. […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
One of my favorite gifts this year? The Fit Bit. I admit, I was skeptical. I tend to be more of a natural health gal, using my intuition to guide me in matters of health and nutrition. I like to walk outside when possible. I don’t eat when I’m not hungry. I don’t push myself […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Most summers, my business gets a bit…slower… I think it is because, whether we are aware of it or not, most people live on a school year schedule. We are more “regimented” in our work/home schedule during the school year. Once it gets warm, we tend to relax, go on vacation, and enjoy a more […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I am not only an exercise enthusiast, but a voracious reader. When we decided recently to cut the cable to our TV, I barely noticed. Even though I consider myself to have a pretty short attention span, I can sit for hours with my sniffer stuck between the pages. Yes, I still prefer “real books,” […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’ll call her Maude. Maude called me on a busy weekday in November, simply leaving a message explaining that she would like an appointment. I quickly called her back and we chatted. She explained that she was 86 and wanted exercise. When I asked her who had referred her, she couldn’t remember. I still don’t […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
“Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.” -Charles Bukowski We all have our own style, our own flare, our own individual taste. We all march to the beat of our own drum…but, some of us run. Some of us hop. Some of us dance and some of us hobble. […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
