What does yoga mean to you? #ShareYourOM for National Yoga Month!

I’ll admit it. It’s been far too long since I’ve gotten my body into the Downward Dog, Warrior, Rabbit or Headstand Poses. Okay, not the Headstand–who am I kidding about that one? I think about all of this from time to time while I’m at the gym. I’m there, squatting, dead lifting, benching, curling and …

Prozac and Other Reasons to Smile.

Oh what a difference a week makes. And new meds. Last Monday, I had had it with the evil side effects with which the Zoloft darkened my doorstep body.

A Headphone That Beats All Others: The Bose SIE2i Sport

Me + music while working out, we just go together. Actually, if there is no music, there is no workout. I have heard of people out there who can take off on a run sans music and just go with the sounds of nature all around them. There are also people out there who can …

I Got 99 Problems But a Bikini Ain’t One.

Hey–guess what? As of today, you have exactly 99 days until Summer. Okay, let me say that again–YOU HAVE EXACTLY 99 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!!!!! I say this not to frighten you, but to serve as your friendly reminder fairy that bathing suit season will be arriving right along with it. That always makes me think …
