Getting grateful this month

Wow, we are now entering November. Can you believe how quickly this year has gone by? Since it is November (and Halloween has passed) it means we are thrown into the holiday season. I love the holidays. But there is also a part of me that is glad when the holidays are over. This time can be […]


Review Wednesday: Skechers Go Walk shoes

For our recent trip to Amsterdam I wanted comfy walking shoes. I have tennis shoes but I wanted something else. I bought the Skechers Go Walk shoes. I have a couple of other pairs of Skechers and like them. The first time I put them on I couldn’t believe how good they felt. They are […]


Back to life, back to reality (and routine)

I have been on vacation for the past two weeks. Spent some time in Tucson visiting my family, resting and relaxing and celebrating my yoga school graduation and teaching my very first yoga class. The second week Curt and I headed to Amsterdam with our friend Jacob. The past two weeks I have enjoyed my […]


Walking to raise money

Next Sunday I am getting up at an ungodly hour on my precious day off to head to San Francisco to walk with my friends/co-workers to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. We are walking in honor of a great man who left this world too early a year ago today. I was […]

The amazing psoas muscle

The psoas muscle (pronounced so-az) affects every facet of your life, from your physical well-being to who you feel yourself to be and how you relate to the world. A bridge linking the trunk to the legs, the psoas is critical for balanced alignment, proper joint rotation, and full muscular range of motion, according to Yoga Journal website. […]


Comment Contest Tuesday

Alright, today’s Comment Contest Tuesday runs in connection with September’s Monthly Challenge. The Monthly Challenge asks readers to think about the things they don’t have time for (a fitness class, shopping for fresh veggies instead of eating/serving frozen meals, cooking at home regularly, going for nightly walks after dinner, getting up in the morning for […]


September Monthly Challenge

OK, for September’s Monthly Challenge I dug into my stockpile of ideas from readers from a Comment Contest Tuesday a few months back. Thanks, Nicole W. for this idea. Normally we have one nutrition challenge and one exercise challenge. This month they are kinda combined into one. This Monthly Challenge also asks for a little […]


Walking Wednesdays

When the weather is nice in South San Francisco (and that can be iffy) there is a small but mighty group who walks together on Wednesdays. The regulars come and go and come and go and new people trickle in. I am not a huge walker and personally would rather not walk. But if it […]
