Know that feeling when your favorite jeans are feeling a bit snug? You know, when you have to do the bunny hop to get them all the way up or you have to lay flat on the floor to get them buttoned? Yeah, you know exactly what I mean ladies. At that point, you start to blame the dryer for shrinking them or your husband who put them in the dryer! How dare he!…
It's soccer season for many of our kids and this takes a lot of family commitment. Every weekend belongs partially to soccer and for some families there are weekday practices as well. During my many hours on the field, I've been noticing and appreciating the fathers who volunteer their time and effort by coaching the kids.…
In honor of Father’s Day and all fathers, I wanted to write a bit about their importance.
I recently learned a new term. It is called “father-void” homes. A father-void home is one where there is an identified father but he has no presence in the home or in the lives of his children. This is compared to “father-less” homes which in the past has meant “no father to be found.” In most cases, there are father’s, they just may not be present,…
If I'm the self-proclaimed Queen of Attracting Stupid Situations, then my husband is without a doubt the King of Attracting Stupid Situations. (Not sure what that says about us being attracted to each other, but anyway.....) I swear, between the two of us, we are an accident waiting to happen at any given moment. The latest case in point? This past weekend when…
You graduated from college and put in some years in corporate America. You're on your way up the ladder. Maybe you're in middle management, maybe higher. From all outward appearances, life is good. So, why can't you ignore this nagging feeling that you were made for more?
making huge strides with P90X, Insanity and ChaLEAN Extreme, I’ve was
looking for my next challenge. Chalene Johnson, creator of Turbo Jam

Recently, I was asked to submit my success story to another website and thought it would be a good one to share here as well. Throughout my life, I was always a relatively active person, but after having two children, and approaching my late 30’s, I really lost
my motivation to workout and my metabolism went down the drain. I was
nearly 50 pounds overweight, unhealthy and very unhappy. I had horrible
Look familiar? Ah, yes, the paradoxical gird-iron (thin-as-toilet-paper)
curtain that separates the plane into 2 groups. I've been flying for 32
years & only once have I been on the other side of the curtain.
Admittedly, when I had that chance, I LOVED it! I felt like a princess.…Continue

Martha Beck got one of her favorite coaching tools from the Japanese manufacturing process. In the 70s, car manufacturing changed completely when the Japanese managed to create cars that just didn’t break down. It changed the entire economy, because folks hardly had to bring their cars into the shop anymore. The cars were so well-made.
To make a long story short, the Japanese automobiles were so well-crafted because the workers were charged with asking “why”…
At age 41, I’m a proud mother of two fantastic kids. Married to an amazing husband and trying my best to keep fit and healthy while trying to help others do the same.
After my amazing results with P90X, I thought I was as close to perfect as I was going to get. Seeing that this was at age 40, I thought that was pretty darned good. But, life gets in the way and my… Continue

It is my pleasure to present my review of the Draft shoe from KURU Footwear. I had never heard of KURU and was excited when they contacted me to provide a review. I am totally a comfy shoe gal. I have picky feet and most shoes are not comfortable for me. Like most women, I will wear shoes for a night out to look stylish, but… Continue
