Is working out with your man a good idea or nah?

August 22, 2014

Five weeks ago my husband, Andre, and I started doing P90X together. I had done it alone several years ago and it took me about that long to sell him on the idea of joining me. I love P90X but always thought the workouts were too long, especially the Yoga X, 90 minutes in length, […]

MY NEXT NEW THING

July 18, 2014

I have an intense hungering for anything fitness, health or beauty related. Don’t judge me; I just like knowing what’s going on in that field. I am officially a self- diagnosed “information junkie.” Processing and gathering information is like a high for me. In fitness, I’m always up to trying something new. A few years […]

My not so good experience in a chiropractor’s office

June 13, 2014

I had never thought much about visiting a chiropractor. It’s something that had never crossed my mind until several weeks ago. I was enjoying an outdoor festival and was approached about a chiropractic screening with the promise of a free hydro massage so reluctantly I gave my information. A few days later I received a […]

What I think about Weight Watchers….

March 28, 2014

I’m nearing the home stretch of the Fast Metabolism Diet as I’m in the fourth and final week, but I’m not sure where I go from here.  The jury is still out on this this diet because it’s said to take 28 days to repair the metabolism but I won’t know how effective it is […]

March 21, 2014

As I near the end of week three on the Fast Metabolism Diet by Hayle Pomroy, I can’t help but note a significant difference in the way my body feels. Not only am I 6 lbs. lighter but I feel energetic and confident. I don’t feel tempted or controlled by food any longer and Phase […]
