Me and Bruce Jenner

2017-08-12T15:51:50-04:00Sunday, December 27, 2015|Tags: , , , |

In a place far away in a much simpler time - I had a chance to meet an American Hero, Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist and superstar athlete.  His name was Bruce Jenner.  In light of all that's happening the WAS in very appropriate because apparently he is gone.  I am a bit sad about that.  Does that mean he died?  I support the new Caitlyn Jenner as she seems happy and fulfilling a lifelong dream to complete her/his identity.  My heart hurts though, it must have been a life full of serious inner turmoil and conflict and I just happy now it seems to be a positive path.  But where did Bruce go? I just came across my some old photos and wanted to share them.  Whenever a human reaches extraordinary heights and serves as an inspiration they should be honored... and in my own little way here's to Bruce!

  Thanksgiving 2015 - fun family food and fitness... don't blow what you know to be true - this is not your last meal - so enjoy the protein, go light on the stuffing and have a taste of dessert - not the whole pie! BUT first a few tips: 1. Be sure to eat slowly.  2. KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT YOUR LAST MEAL!! :) 3. Fill the INSIDE of your plate 1X  4. Protein is a fist size 5. Veggies are 2 -3 fists (umm, if they aren't loaded with marshmallows) 6. Don't snack on the appetizers 7. Drink 8-10oz of water 30 minutes BEFORE you eat! 8. Never eat without a napkin on your lap (translates to: don't eat standing up) 9. Stop before you've cleared that plate and ask yourself, "Am I still hungry?" 10. ENJOY the people. The LOVE. The Gratitude. That's truly what this holiday SEASON is all about.. not the food. 11. Take a tupperware container and pack some of this goodies you couldn't finish in your plate for another meal.

Forbes Riley + HSN

Men LOVE SpinGym

2017-08-12T15:51:50-04:00Wednesday, November 25, 2015|

This could be one of my FAVORITE reviews on SpinGym - found on Amazon A guy who loves the Forbes Riley Spin Gym!! By PMG on March 24, 2011 I have been using the Spin Gym this past month and have really taken to this little gadget with the big results. I have arthritis in my lower back so lifting big, bulky, heavy weights is not an option for me anymore (and I'm in my mid 30s). I have to be careful with what I do, and what I love about the Spin Gym is that I can still work my chest, back, arms, even abs and legs all with one functioning and functionable product. And guys....don't think you won't get an amazing workout!! You get so much bang for your buck with Spin Gym. You get two workout DVDs that creates variety and challenge. You can use it at your own pace. You can get up to 20 lbs. of resistance depending on the rate your spinning. My favorite exercises are "hugging a tree", "climbing a ladder", "arrow", and "lawnmower". When I do the abs workout, trying to do a crunch and keeping Spin Gym spinning is a challenge that my [...]

Lola Jeans Make you look SKINNY!

2017-08-12T15:51:50-04:00Tuesday, November 24, 2015|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Magic - I put the jeans on and wow - I look like I lost 10 pounds!  Also at my age, I would never consider wearing "skinny" tight legged jeans -- well I have found my dream pair.  We had so much fun with these 4 ways stretched jeans that I didn't want to take them off and went to the website and bought 4 more in different cuts and of course added black! Also a shout out to the energetic and passionate Kasie Savage who made laugh out loud I almost split my seams!   Brothers David and Sam were never straight A students and therefore never got an allowance from their parents. They were left with no choice but to quit school at a young age and work at their father’s jeans store. Reluctant at first, they worked by their dad’s side and eventually fell in love with the fashion industry. Searching for a new challenge and with barely any experience in manufacturing and wholesaling, they started designing and producing jeans. Their goal: Produce the most comfortable yet fashionable women’s jeans. After years of trial and error, extensive investment, countless sleepless nights, Lola Jeans was finally born in [...]

BeBe & Bella Makes YOU look Glam!

2017-08-12T15:51:50-04:00Tuesday, November 24, 2015|

  Power Among Sisters - I love Linda and Allison Krebs energy and passion - and they even had mom on the set.   Probiotic Skincare Benefits |BeBe & As soon as you begin using BeBella, you’ll notice a change. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to soften, dry skin will become deeply hydrated, inflammation and redness will appear diminished, and age spots will start to fade. Besides improving the look and feel of your skin, BeBella also boosts its natural defenses against environmental damage, one of the leading causes of premature aging. We based the BeBella regimen on the Japanese “layering method” of skincare. Japanese skincare often involves several steps - cleansing, toning, serum application, moisturizer and eye cream application. This is how BeBella is meant to be used. Though each product works on its own, they’re meant to be layered for maximum benefit. One product simply can’t do it all. What sets BeBella Apart? BeBella’s skincare secret is in its two patented anti-aging ingredients: Probiotic + Fissione Yeast Propagate Technology. Fissione is a skin-friendly yeast complex that encourages faster cell turnover, enhances the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and fights off free radicals. Lactobacillus casei Propagate Technology is [...]

Skinny is NOT the Goal!

2017-08-12T15:51:51-04:00Tuesday, September 29, 2015|

  Body image - what do you believe you should and perhaps can look like?  Long and lean, toned and strong, bigger, littler - its a bit confusing.  My thought is always health.  Build muscle (not to excess), enjoy cardio like biking and hiking and understand that your body is where you LIVE - and if it breakdowns, where will you go!  Look inside, eat well, drink plenty of water and breathe - the rest will take care of itself!  

Jack Lalanne’s Birthday

2017-08-12T15:51:51-04:00Saturday, September 26, 2015|

Jack would have been 101 and he truly believed he could have made it -- he certainly gave it a valiant effort Here are Eight Lessons from the Life and Work of Jack LaLanne... enjoy He bootstrapped himself. A scrawny little kid at 15, he decided to change who he was and how he was perceived, and then he did. The deciding was as important as the doing. He went to the edges. He didn't merely open a small gym, a more pleasant version of a boxing gym, for instance. Instead, he created the entire idea of a health club, including the juice bar. He did this 70 years ago. He started small. No venture money, no big media partners. He understood the power of the media. If it weren't for TV, we never would have heard of Jack. Jack used access to the media to earn trust and to teach. And most of what Jack had to offer he offered for free. He understood the value of attention. He was willing to avoid prime time. Jack never had a variety show on CBS. He was able to change the culture from the fringes of TV. He owned the rights. [...]
