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 […]


Soaking up the sun

Last week I was walking up to one of my classes where students were waiting for the previous class to get finished so we could practice yoga. One student looked at me and said something to the effect that I looked happy and smiling. I said, it’s the sun! We are transitioning into Spring. Last week […]


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 […]


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 […]


Review Wednesday: SodaStream

For the past eight or nine years I have made sure to get in a regular and healthy amount of water in daily. Last year after returning from my birthday trip to Bora Bora I decided reducing my alcohol intake might be a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t eliminate wine and beer and […]


Conserving, preserving water

Normally when I write about water I talk about how we need to make sure we stay hydrated as part of being healthy. Today’s post is about our responsibility as residents and citizens to protect this precious resource. I grew up in the desert. So I’ve been mindful my whole life about water waste. And […]


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 […]


Cooking and blending my way to healthy eating

During this time I am taking off from working full time I want to get back to healthy: physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and in any other way I can. I have started eating better, drinking even more water than I was before and I am even cooking a bit. (I’ve also started back with my […]


Middle of the night leg cramps

Occasionally I get a charley horse in one of my legs in the middle of the night while sleeping. One time I got one in each calf. Wow, ouch! Over the past few nights I have woken up in the middle of the night twice with a charley horse in my left leg. According to […]
