Life Lessons Learned…

After spending a week at the Movara Fitness Resort (thanks for “joining me” on social media!) I had a three-hour drive home to consider a few key things learned that I haven’t yet shared. And, what I want to keep doing. I hope it sparks ideas for you to tweak, shift, or make an all-out leap to change.

1. I am capable of a healthy more. Before I left my biggest concern was, of course, six to seven hours of working out every day (when I was maxing at two times to Zumba a week).

My Movara Fitness Week: Day 2!

For ONE week, I’m a guest at the Movara Fitness Resort in Ivins, Utah (by St. George), formerly the home of one of the Biggest Loser camps.   It’s a dream come true!  And through an amazing chain of events, I’m here for a week on a mission to find out: what is this kind of experience actually like; is it worth doing; and what will the take-home be?

I’m not a believer in quick weight loss or superficial changes. My goal isn’t to drop a ton of weight (wha ...

Ready for a week-long fitness camp?  

Have you ever wanted to do one of those, where chefs make low-cal meals that look gourmet, and personal trainers help you know the best workouts for your body type?

Take a shoulder-angel trip with me next week and enjoy that very experience! Join me at Movara, a fitness camp and resort, (and even was the home of The Biggest Loser!)  My hope is to be a sort of path-paver to help us all discover if this is a worthwile venture, in the short and long-term.

To make the most of this ...

The Domino Effect of Decisions

In talking with women, I find over and over how one decision at one point in life led to an unexpected experience, which led to an opportunity, which led to a better opportunity, which led to joy and contribution they had never imagined.

Have you experienced that?

For an example, let’s talk swimsuits (stay with me!) I just read an article about Rose Marie Reid. If you don’t know her, read on, talk about amazing!

About 1936, swimsuits were mostly made of wool, came in ...

What do Adele, Natalie Portman, and Myself Have in Common?

Okay, quick, what is the bestselling album of all time?

Don’t know? Me neither. Does it matter?

Exactly.

Reading this article on Adele, I was incredulous that she and other celebrity women were being criticized for saying their most fulfilling role in life has been motherhood (and not a bestselling album). Apparently, Natalie Portman caused an “uproar” in stating a similar message when receiving an Oscar.

Seriously?

Not to be annoying, but how is p ...

The Power and Influence of Female Friendship

I’ve been thinking about the vital need for and blessing of female friendship lately. In fact, one of my favorite poems about friends is from Robert Frost. It’s tucked in a strip of fabric ribbon on my Love Board. And although I empty my board at the start of each new year to allow for incoming notes and mementos of love and happiness, I keep this friendship poem on the board regardless.

​​When a friend calls to me from the road  And slows his horse to a meaning walk,  I don ...

My answer to, What do you do when…

I love when this happens.

Over the weekend a lovely gal responded to one of my posts with a pertinent question.

Here is the post:

“My children used to think I was like the Energizer bunny—I could keep going, and going, and going … It was my fault because I proved it daily by being available for everyone and everything. This was unwise. Through time and experience, I came to realize that not only was I hurting my own health and self-esteem, but I was also setting ...
