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.

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 [...]

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. [...]
