evolution of a push up

The push up is one of many age-old classic exercises that will never go out of style.  It is an introductory move and often used as a base line to test ones level of strength. When I first started my own FITness journey, back when I was skinny/fat, Are you a slave to the scale??  I could… Continue reading evolution of a push up

Foolish Foods

Navigating a new healthy eating regimen can be difficult.  There is a ton of tom foolery in marketing "healthy foods."  These healthy spin tactics are designed to keep a fat rat on the wheel spinning into a  never ending frenzy. I want to move you off of the wheel and away from the maddening maze… Continue reading Foolish Foods

In your dreams

One morning last week I woke up mad.  Y'all, I was seriously angry, like hotter than a match mad, AT MY HUSBAND!

Winter WINE-ing

Who's ready for SPRING? I'm already channeling warmer weather,  flip-flops and tan lines. Winter is sooo hard! I become calloused for motivation.  Getting out of bed for work on the cold, rainy, dismal winter days is worse than domestic manual labor.

Well-Rounded

This wasn't exactly an ideal hallmark for an impressionable female teenager. "Well - Rounded" really? The picture above would sure speak to a well rounded head of hairsprayed hair that's for  certain.  But like hairstyles, trends change. Let's remember that I was a prodigy of the 70's, when hippie chic "skinny" girls graced the Copper Tone… Continue reading Well-Rounded
