Why I Love Fitness/Nutrition Coaching!
Many ask how I’ve ended up in the field of fitness training and nutrition coaching. I’ve always enjoyed the feeling of being well and at optimal energy to enjoy life-whatever stage I was in. My mother often wondered if one day I would collapse with such ongoing energy. When she said, ” geez, you never…Read More
Whenever I hear the word, “diet”, I cringe! Aghhhhh! Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Twiggy era (anyone remember?) She was that super stick thin skinny model we were all ‘suppose to’ emulate! And, I NEVER was going to have that kind of shape- I got hips! 🙂 Even our mothers, God…Read More
No Exercise Equipment? No problem!
I was talking with someone today about his workout routine. He travels a lot. Some hotels don’t have good exercise facilities. He is busy and passionate about his work, yet knows he needs to make time for his health. He figured out a way to get it done with no exercise equipment. Your body can…Read More
Counting Calories-Bah Humbug!
If you are my client, you know that I cringe when I hear, ” thus and such has sooo many calories!” Ugh…..stop the worrying over calories, would ya please?

Health Management in your 50s & Beyond……

I know I told you that sometimes a smoothie is a mid-meal choice. But not always. Smoothies are great for really busy days and help to get required fruits and vegetables in, but given…Read More
My Favorite Quick Breakfasts!
One of the lifestyle nutrition habits I teach my clients is: Always Eat Breakfast. Breakfast means ‘breaking the fast’, or eating within about 30 minutes of rising. Many clients say, ” Ewwww, I just can’t stomach eating when I first get up!” I let them know that it’s not necessary to eat a grandiose plate…Read More
My Favorite Smoothies
Just about every day I have a smoothie that includes protein and fresh fruit. A smoothie is an awesome way to add protein grams in your daily nutrition, get servings of fruits or vegetables (although, I am not personally fond of vegetables ground up…I’ll eat those fresh!….just me…), and make for a nice…Read More

Skype is a free download. You go to Skype.com, and follow the prompts to establish Skype app on your desktop. Or…Read More
My Balance Stinks!
This week, balance was a common theme among my clients. The 30 year olds still do fairly well, but the clients in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond really seem to struggle with maintaining balance. How about you? Here’s a few self tests you can take to see how you are doing in the balance…Read More
