It is a “Good Life”

So I have a health related guilty pleasure. I love reading, “The Good Life”; it’s the magazine by Dr. Oz. I don’t watch his show constantly, if I catch it I watch it but I don’t look for it. But last year a co-worker gave me one of his magazines, and I was hooked. I literally…

Fitness at the Flower Show

You wouldn’t expect it, but I found the Philadelphia Flower Show to be a very healthy outing. Jim and I had gone in years past, and this year my friend Kelly had two free tickets we were able to use. Every year there is a theme, and this year the theme was, “Holland”. It was…

Snow Day=Fit Day

Just when I thought it was over, I mean we were wearing t-shirts with no jackets about a week ago. My runs had moved outdoors, and it was a sure sign that spring was just around the corner. Then we hear there is going to be a snowstorm. Since I work for a school this…

If Only Life was Judgement Free Zone

My husband and I belong to Planet Fitness, you know the gym with all the purple. They pride themselves on being a “judgement free zone”, and I don’t know anyone else’s experiences with them but I have found that 100% true.

Tasty Dance Workshop & Fitness Food

Living where I do, I am extremely lucky because there are so many awesome fitness opportunities. A lot of these opportunities are in the city of Philadelphia, about 20 minutes from my house. I have taken a few classes with Philly Dance Fitness, and it is an ass-kicking workout every time. But when they posted…

2017 Non-Scale Goals

My last post was an update on how my goals went that I set back in May 2016. Now that it is a new year, it is time to set some new goals to work on this year. These are not resolutions, something that I am going to try and then abandon. Instead they will…

Stay Safe with L.A.C.E.

Last night I did something active that was far from a regular workout but it could be life saving. I went to Israeli Krav Maga of Cherry Hill to a monthly class they hold strictly for women on self defense. I have been wanting to try it for months, and finally my schedule aligned. My…

Survived Halloween… Bring It On Thanksgiving!

So a week ago was Halloween. Are you still eating the leftover candy? Did you eat any that day? Because this year was the first year I didn’t eat a single piece of Halloween candy on Halloween, and I didn’t eat any this whole week after. This first time in my entire life! I went…

Decided I needed a change

I’ve gone back and forth between writing this post. There was a lot going on in my brain. People are going to think, “Um you got a haircut who cares?”, or something along those lines. Does this really have anything to do with fitness? Well yes and no. My mental state made it about fitness,…
