Do you need to unplug?

            Do you remember the days when you needed to send a letter to a friend in order to correspond?  How good it felt to open up the envelope?  Now a days, our postal service is in peril because nobody wants to take the time to send those messages.    Caroline Myss, a brilliant medical intuitive and author, says we are trying to remove time and space.  Letters, only a few years ago, needed both time and space to reach their intended targets.  "In the absence of this time and space, all chang

Take It Outside!

 As I write this post on out-of-the-box workouts, I hope Mother Nature takes pity on us with more cool weather in Chicago soon so we can enjoy ditching the gym and taking our workouts outside.  I know what you're thinking: Wait a second.  Now that I committed to a gym, you’re telling me NOT to go?  YES (weather permitting), and here’s why . . .

Your Workout is only 4% of your day....NO EXCUSES!!

BLUE SKIES to you Beautiful,I was thinking about how little time it requires to get healthy everday!!

How is it possible that I can take a golf lesson at 10am, feel like I am a golf rock star, then not be able to do a thing I learned later the same day??? That muscle memory is just so in control! I guess I better practice, practice, practice!


I underestimated the amount of work I have to do in order to be caught up! I have in essence due been "off" my routine all of June until this week-- 3 weeks behind! This month did not turn out the way I had hoped, but "C'est La Vie"!! I'll be working hard for a couple weeks to get back to a good sense of organization. I am not only behind in my work life, I'm behind in my exercise, diet, home life etc....Time to ATTACK!!
