Thanksgiving is over and soon it will be Christmas and a new year. Wow, the year both flew by and yet felt like it lasted 30 years, am I right? It’s holiday season and I’m kinda feeling like the Grinch. Over the last couple of months, I just haven’t felt like myself. I blame menopause,… Continue reading The new me
When I look back at my social media posts and blog posts from 2020, I was on the top of my game, both physically and mentally, even though we were in the midst of a crazy pandemic. I was killing my workouts, I was eating healthy, and I was goal-focused. I had a group of… Continue reading 2021 vs 2020
A few days ago, I talked about how things are for me now that I’m 55. My body has gone through so many changes over the last several years. I’ve talked about the weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats. Another thing that I haven’t talked about is my change in diet. For many years,… Continue reading My current diet
Good morning! I hope you’ve been enjoying your long weekend. Mine has been great! I watched some college football and ate too many unhealthy snacks on Saturday, had brunch yesterday with the family and ate way too much food, enjoyed the nice weather in the backyard with my husband, drank some cocktails and learned how… Continue reading Current workout program
Good morning, readers! It’s been a quiet, relaxing Sunday morning. I slept in until 7:00 a.m., enjoyed a cup of coffee while reading a book.

Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of. The last time I blogged, I was getting to ready to have surgery and our youngest daughter was going to have surgery as well. Also during that time, my employer was asking everyone to come back to work… Continue reading Everything’s fine.
Thank you to everyone who expressed their kind words of love and support for our family following Tuesday’s post. We are still waiting on a surgery date for Kayla, but meet with her doctor on Monday and hope to know more after that visit. I had my preoperative work-up appointment on Wednesday and learned more… Continue reading Expected recovery process
Today I wanted to give my review of Shaun T’s latest Beachbody workout program, Let’s Get Up! Let’s Get Up! is a 4-week, 6 days a week program that incorporates dance moves, along with two days dedicated to strength training. The program is designed for beginners, but anyone can work up a sweat and build… Continue reading Let’s Get Up! Review
It’s crazy that a month has gone by since I last wrote a blog post! At that time, I was dealing with some neck issues; I was pretty sure that I had a herniated disc, but I had to wait to have an MRI to know for sure. I had my MRI and sure enough,… Continue reading Neck update
Last Thursday morning, I woke up with a painful, stiff neck. Man, I must have slept wrong, was what I thought. I decided to go ahead and do my workout, which was a cardio workout from 4 Weeks of The Prep, and included some burpees and ab exercises. I figured the movement would work out… Continue reading Injuries suck.
