Countdown to National Wear Red Day 2017!

For those of you that don't know me personally, I'm relatively private about my health struggles.  I'm trying to be more open about them as I find sharing my struggles may actually help or inspire someone who may be going through the same thing.  I've always had an irregular heart beat for as long as I can remember but with age it has gotten more noticeable.  I initially had a slight murmur which over time was followed by arrythmia...

The "skinny craze" is horrifying and its global. It's not cool, nor is it healthy. We need to stop comparing ourselves to others because in reality we will never ever be happy in the pursuit of what some think is the ideal look and/or standard of "perfection". Let's get one thing straight, we were born beautifully imperfect. So for humans, there is no physical perfection, only ones perception of that con...

This Is YOUR Journey

Posted on April 10, 2016 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Happy Sunday all... Luckily our neighbors know we are fit freaks or one might think I'm just crazy but either way... The older I get, I care less about what people think and more about how I feel. Fitness is a major part of my life... I'm that person doing bodyweight exercises in front of the TV when I have time to catch up on shows I enjoy. I'm that person that will be doing jump squats at my desk if I sit too long. Not because I have something to prove or I want to show off, but my body and...

We focus a lot on physical health but let's not forget what's really important. Make time to reflect and heal spiritually and emotionally. Living a healthy life should be done so with a holistic approach.   Think about it... How often have we tried to "get fit" then quit or "fail" because of some emotional baggage or internal situation we have yet to rid ourselves with?  I'll be the ...

Thoughts and Reflections For Spiritual Nourishment (8.30.15)

Posted on August 30, 2015 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (1)

The current path of this world is not really set for comfort and easy living for all. We tend to get caught up in the images and/or perception of the media and others as to how we should look, what we should buy and wear or how we "should" be living... There is a false sense of happiness and security that fulfilling these ...
