My blog is where I want to share with you any info that I think you may find useful, or not, who knows? There will be a wide range of topics that will pop into my brain so look out!

The Cheat Meal…Yeah!

It is great to eat a meal that is a treat instead of a staple. Each week I try to really stick to lean proteins, lots of veggies, quinoa, and maybe brown rice. Does it go to hell in a hand basket some weeks…oh yeah…but I try!?! One meal of the week I will... read more

What Can I Say???

Ok, now I have gone off the deep end or maybe not!?! This is just silly normal life for me and I know it is really goofy but that is the way it is! Things just happen spontaneously like in this pic. My husband and I had bought a piece of furniture and it was taking up... read more

Tropical Fruit Anyone?

My mother is from Indonesia and papaya was a staple in her diet along with many other tropical fruits. We can so easily get stuck in the rut of apples, pears, berries, etc. that it is nice to add a bit of a twist to the palate. When my kids were little and I took them... read more

No Excuse Goblet Squat

This is the no excuse goblet squat because Lana had a training session with me and the power went out. Say what!?! No excuses!!! We got out the flashlights and carried on…that’s the thing to do!!! Squats should be a must in your arsenal of exercises. There... read more

Find A Fun Activity!

Now, I know this is not a typical activity most people like to do but remember I am a bit of an odd ball and not a girlie girl!?! The point here is finding something that makes YOU happy and flinging around a nunchuck makes me happy! We can all get caught up in the... read more
