Heading into each Spring and Summer, I like to experiment with a different type of physical activity. Last year, I found myself trying to paddleboard and that was definitely not for me. I don’t mind getting wet while exercising, but when one finds oneself in the water more so than using one’s core or arms… Continue reading »

One of my goals for 2017 was to reduce the amount of time I spent on social media and to instead, just live in the moment. Instead of being burdened by taking a perfect picture, crafting a clever caption, and keeping track of the number of likes, I decided to look UP (something I learned from… Continue reading »

I’ve been advocating more physical activity in my classes lately ( online and onsite ) for the pure joy of movement without associated technological gadgets. Wow, did that ever come into play for my safety during a recent trip to the coast. While refusing to wear my Nike Run Watch or carry my iPhone during weekend… Continue reading »

The photo shows two cards received simultaneously in late January 2017—one on the left is from Raleigh Crossfit and the one on the right is from the Alexander Family YMCA, also a Raleigh fitness institution.

You may just spot one of my favorite coaches, Amber, in the background.  She is one of my favorite label-making  supporters! Let me explain please. When in a CrossFit box (gym), you become… Continue reading »

Take a look at photo. Yes, I can clean and jerk with the best of them. No, I don’t claim to be one of the best of them— take a look at the Summer Olympics in Rio and you’ll clearly see that I’m not in the elite category of weightlifters. Hey, 99.99999% of us are… Continue reading »

I hear it all the time while teaching Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less (and Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes):  “ I was doing so great on t r a c k i n g and moving until vacation hit. “  I don’t dream of telling anyone that vacation season is prime weight loss/… Continue reading »

Along came Rusty! Ok, his name was Banjo at the Wake County SPCA, but he and I had a little chat on the fateful April day we adopted him three months after our final farewell to TJ-the-Wonderdog of almost-18-yrs! { My partner had been promised three years of freedom from canines, yet three months was… Continue reading »
