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 […]


Fall Back 2017

Wow, It’s been months and months since I’ve written a post. There are definitely things I want to share with you all. Just time isn’t on my side these days. You can keep up with me via social media and my monthly newsletter (you can sign up with the button to the top right.) On […]

Take Time for You

As we get ready to enter what I call the Crazy Time Season we have to remember to take care of ourselves. Self-care is so important but we tend to neglect taking care of No. 1. I truly believe you can’t take care of anyone else unless you take care of yourself. Self-care comes in […]


Taking my advice with time change

For many years I write a post when we Spring Forward and Fall Back and I give advice and tips on how to prepare before the change and things to do after. (Here’s last week’s post with tips to prepare to Spring Forward.) I usually follow some of my advice. But not all of it. […]


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 […]


Happy New Year

I joined a gym in June 2007 and have been a regular since. When I joined Weight Watchers in October 2006 it was advised that exercise didn’t start immediately. First reduce the food portions, make healthier and more filling choices, drink more water, etc. I can’t remember how long it was recommended that you first […]


It’s almost time to Fall Back

Twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. (And note to my family, starting Sunday […]


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 […]


Keep healthy this flu season

I got my flu shot on Friday. Over the weekend it occurred to me that I should write a post about it. Mostly because there are so many myths about getting the flu shot. I have gotten the flu shot for at least the past 10 years in a row (and got it while I […]
