Being Fit Over 50

Put down the phone please

Posted by in Happiness, Harmony, Health, Love

Yes I am talking to you. But I am also talking to myself (as sad as that is, it is true). I became acutely aware of it a year ago or so at a family function. With my husband’s family it was more prevalent than ever. I am guessing because of the size of his family it made a bigger impact than usual. We had all sat down for dinner and of course there were numerous phones on the dinner table. Then after dinner I noticed instead of the kids…read more


Why I love my breakfast on the Weekends

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

I have to say I love my breakfast on the weekends. Why? Because my husband cooks breakfast for me every weekend. Yes you heard that right. We get up together and enjoy a cup of coffee as we talk about what he should create and what the day will bring. I might take a few minutes to play a game of words with friends on the phone and he might take 10 minutes to scroll through boats on his phone (yes we do those things too). It’s not a perfect…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


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


Is Divorce ever done right?

Posted by in Happiness, Love, Motivation

With Thanksgiving right around the corner I’d like to touch on a few things I am very thankful for. I am thankful to be blessed with a great family. My family meaning my immediate family. My husband, my son, my daughter and my ex-husband. Yes I said my ex-husband. They are the four most important people in my life and who I would give my life for. Now what I mean is if they ever needed anything from me and I could help, I would. No questions asked. Now some of you…read more
