When does your Metabolism slow down?

Posted by in Fitness, Fun, Health, Motivation

I think it varies with each individual. For me I have to say my metabolism seemed to sit at a high pace for a long long time. It was not until my later 30’s or even my early 40’s that I found I could no longer eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted and not gain a pound. Those were the good old days. I read an interesting article that actually explained your metabolism and compared it to a furnace. It said that the faster your metabolism is the better…read more

What do you really want out of life?

Posted by in Fun, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Love

Well after years of wanting to control things in my life, I have decided that the saying “we make plans and god laughs” is more than true. Back in my 30’s and even in my early 40’s I thought I knew what it was I wanted. Being a bit of a perfectionist I always wanted to have a clean organized nice home, well behaved children, a big lawn and flower bed I could retreat to. I had a career where I was in control and that could afford me a…read more

They Grow up fast – Make the most of it!

Posted by in Fun, Happiness, Harmony, Health, Love

Kids! If you have them you know what I am talking about. You remember the day they were born and then you turn around and all of a sudden they are starting school. Now you are watching them get their driver’s license. Where has the time gone? Now more than ever I want to write this blog. I feel this way and I never even had a cell phone when my kids were growing up. I cannot imagine how the time goes by with all the social media stuff out…read more

Get Moving! It’s really just that simple

Posted by in Fitness, Fun, Health, Motivation

As I’m sitting in my office looking out that window at the snow falling and the squirrel perched up on the tree eating nuts, I think about how easy it would be to just stay in my pajamas and sip my hot coffee and just work on the computer all day. A luxury I might add that I could have since I work out of the house. It’s cold out and grey out and very uninviting. I know I’ve said it before. But the truth is sometimes it just takes…read more

What are friends for?

Posted by in Fun, Happiness, Health, Love, Motivation

For me my friends are my life lines. They are my sisters from another mother. They are the ones I can count on when times get tough. They are my go to people when I need answers. They make me laugh, they make me cry. Friends are simply something I cannot live without. Each and every one of my friends holds a very special place in my heart in a very unique way. No two are alike and that is what makes each one of them so special. I left…read more

Wine or Candy?

Posted by in Food, Fun, Health

Well after celebrating the Halloween holiday with a few too many treats I started thinking about the sugars that are in those treats. After doing some investigation (I really should have been an investigator) I found that the 15 most popular candy bars contain 21 grams of sugar each. And an average Halloween bag adds up to 1200 calories, 177 grams of sugar and 32 grams of fat. Now that’s some serious sugar. And we all know that sugar turns into fat. And NOT our healthy fats.  Then I started…read more

Do you like Halloween?

Posted by in Food, Fun

I find it appropriate to be writing about Halloween today. And for those of you that don’t know me, it is my absolute FAVORITE day of the year. I love the idea of dressing up and being whoever you want to be. It’s a day you can be silly, creepy, sexy, smart, scary, or just about whatever or whoever you want to be and have fun with it.  I enjoy the whole process from getting made up and putting on a costume to handing out candy to the kiddies and…read more
