Nothing Left Unsaid

I have just been through the longest weeks of my life. My mother died October 23, 2011 at the age of 81; they called it sudden death. The day before we had talked like every day, talking about her yard and my dog. At the end of the conversation, she instructed me - as she always did - to pet Mr. Darcy on her behalf.

Learning New Things and Gaining Confidence in the Process

I have officially completed 4 days of P90X, chest and  back, plyometrics, biceps triceps and shoulders and YogaX.  Surprisingly the most difficult was not the pull-ups, but the yoga.  One hour and a half of balance and strengthening yoga poses.  This is not your average stretching class.  It was INTENSE!  After 45minutes I was done.  But I held on and completed the whole cd.  The lengthening of my muscles felt great after 3 days of intense strengthening and cardio.  Flexibility has never been my strong suit and this cd proved this again.  I

Stress on the body

It's that time of the year......hustle and bustle, crazy schedules, not enough time in the day, finances, etc.  All of this can wreak havoc on our wellbeing.  We all know this....myself included.  However, I was reminded of it yesterday while having a massage.  Michelle is my massage therapist, and I see her usually once a month.  She had given me a massage the first week of October; and since then, a lot has gone on in my life, emotions, etc.  I'm doing well  - have handled the situations - done some detoxing of people who were not good for m

See more results from your workouts

Are you bored with your workout? Have you stopped seeing results? It might be time to switch up your exercise regimen and start seeing results! Your workout should never be a routine.
