I wished I had seen this Body Type Nutrition blog earlier but would I have followed the tips. Maybe . . . maybe not. No matter.

This is day two after Christmas and day two of my cleanse. Why did I start earlier than the 24 Day Challenge? Because I wanted to “get off the heavy sugar” and feel better.  (Note:  My views have changed and my body no longer allows me to do a cleanse.) Read more

Sunday Abs with the DH (Dear Husband)

Early Sunday mornings we like to head to the studio to get in some extra ab work. We have a lot of fun and really push each other. The only time it’s a bad idea is if we have heavy abs in class the next morning.

Crossing Over to the Dark Side – – The Things Clients Say to Trainers

This morning I knew I was accepted as their trainer when I heard those sweet words “Screw you Jessica!” after a tough workout. It took a minute before I realized what the client had said because her tone was matter-of-fact … It was like music to my ears. Lol Read more

My health and fitness journey can take me to some strange places.  On day two in Vegas, I wanted to go to Whole Foods to get some healthy snacks.

I’d been there by car several times last year so I knew where it was.  I checked Mapquest to see how far it was to walk.  3.1 miles.  Okay no big deal.  I dressed warmly and started on my way.  It was only in the 50s when I left.  Well it kept get warmer and I peeled off the top layer but had a very warm long sleeved sweater underneath.  Bad choice.

Thunder thighs was an embarrassing nickname for me in my teens . . .

So we were having a little fun doing happy feet this morning at 5:00 a.m. training when our trainer decided to take a picture.  She took a great picture and sent it to me.  I contemplated all morning about posting this picture for so many reasons.

Yes, it’s a fun picture with my DH on my right and Mayor Ragan on the left Read more
