P90 is Officially Here!! What are the details and how can I get it?

The biggest buzz to hit the fitness world is happening now. This is a program that is created by Fitness trainer and expert Tony Horton.  You may also know him from workouts like P90X, and the 10 minute trainer. He has created some world class extreme home fitness programs.  But something is missing!  There are people out there that can’t or don’t want to do extreme home fitness but they literally just want to get started. Maybe you haven’t worked out in…

You can do this program, even if you think you can’t do the others, and you may be right about that,  you can do this one. Trust me. This is fitness for you. Do it with me in my next challenge group.

Happiness is a learned skill

Happiness is a learned skill

I have this crazy idea! Why not treat happiness as a skill? I mean, we learn all kinds of things in life, right? What do you suppose would happen if you start doing more of the things that make you happy, and less of the other things. For example, I love to read, and for a long time I got away from it. I would sit down at the end of my day, and instead of picking up a book…

Bacon Basil Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Bacon Basil Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I would never think to combine bacon with sweet potatoes.  I found this recipe on a Paleo website. I don’t follow the Paleo principle. I am much more flexible in my food that that. I personally don’t believe in eliminating whole food groups or think I should never have something again. Having said that, I certainly don’t discriminate either. Paleo has some amazing recipes. And this one… Its going down tonight!! Bacon Basil Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes Prep time 15 mins.. Cook…

Do this Every Morning

Do this Every Morning

The thing I learned is that it’s not fair to be mad at my body for looking a certain way, feeling a certain way, and for it not to be able to do everything I want it to do, if I’m not willing to do everything possible to take great care of it. Weight loss doesn’t happen out of resentment for yourself, it has to come from a place of love for yourself. Set your mind right every morning by…

Break the rules!

Break the rules!

Getting older is just a number… I am certain I am in much better shape and healthier now then I was in my 20, and 30‘s and 40’s. Look at me and  Tony Horton, both born in ’58! What?? It’s true!! Are there really rules to follow as you get older? Getting older is just a number. The idea you hold in your head about age can actually be holding you back from living your life. Who ever decided you…
