Spring Forward 2018

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (on Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward […]


Spring Forward 2017

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward and […]


Before … after … and now

For about the past year to year and a half I have been the healthiest I have ever been. Not the smallest or thinnest, but the healthiest. I turn 42 in one month and I feel amazing. And I think I look pretty good, too. I know that’s not what it is all about. It’s about […]


Preparing to Spring Forward

Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. So to my Arizona family […]


Our bodies need energy, fuel

Like a car we need to fuel our bodies. I was talking to a friend recently telling her how I am teaching five cycle classes a week (among numerous yoga classes). Her next question was, are you in crazy great shape? (That’s not a quote. But she said something like that.) I told her I […]


Getting ready to Spring Forward

Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get the point of it. I grew up somewhere (Arizona) where time change doesn’t occur. So to my Arizona […]


I sweated a lot in a Bikram yoga class

Let me say that I realize this post may cause dislike, disagreement, possibly anger … But this is my opinion and my feelings on hot yoga. And you are allowed to disagree. I don’t believe Bikram yoga (hot yoga) is real yoga. After experiencing it I will say it is some form of exercise? … yoga […]


Spring Forward

This post is brought to you by the free wifi from the Starbucks in Harrah’s in Reno. Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) It’s that time again to Spring Forward (tomorrow at 2 a.m.). I am not a fan of time change. I seriously don’t get […]


Keeping calm, simple for Monthly Challenge

I asked my readers for ideas for the November Monthly Challenge. I got a lot of great ideas and used them. I saved one idea for Go Fit Girl’s December Monthly Challenge. We’ll get to that shortly. December is a tough month for me and for many others as well. We are so busy with […]


No excuses … Week 2

This past week was Week 2 back to healthy living. It was a challenging week at work. I didn’t just work long hours, they were also intense hours. I kept my gym bag packed and ready to go in the trunk every day. Monday and Tuesday I worked long hours but was still able to […]
