Is it just me or did summer fly by in the blink of an eye? Now that fall is here, it is time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, over-sized sweaters, and football. Just as important, it is time to get back into a routine.
I just spent the last two weekends working on home improvement projects… scraping ceilings, painting, and deep cleaning.
Are you looking for a quick, easy, equipment-free workout you can do in the comfort of your own living room?
Many times when I ask a group of people, ‘What is the best exercise for you?’ the response is ‘walking’.
Are you looking for activities to teach children and students healthy behaviors and get them moving?
What is the best excuse that you have ever come up with? Think about it. Was it for missing work, bailing on a fitness class, justifying your fast food habit, or getting out of that blind date your Aunt Betty set you up on?
Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed in the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do.”
The plank, as described by American College of Sports Medicine, is an isometric core strength exercise, also, known as a front hold, hover or abdominal bridge. The most common is the front plank, held in the push-up position with the body’s weight on forearms, elbows and toes.

Every fall I go through an extensive shoe search for closed toe shoes. I like to think I have special feet – let’s just say one of my nicknames has always been ‘toes’. I have a narrow foot but my toes add some length so shoes are very hard for me to find. Not only do I want a shoe that fits properly, but I do not buy shoes that do not have any support.

When I was in my twenties, I discovered a love for hiking. I was living in Austin, TX at the time. It is in the Texas hill country and outdoor activities are plentiful. I would hike along the Barton Creek Greenbelt every day after work and venture out to try new trails on the weekends.
What’s the must-have piece of gear for every exerciser? A water bottle.
According to Wikipedia, the term “Hat Trick” originally came from the sport of cricket. It was first used in 1858 in to describe the bowler H.H. Stephenson’s feat of taking three wickets with three consecutive deliveries.
Prior to birthing the two loves of my life, I actually wore yoga pants to work out. Now I just wear them. However, in my twenties and prior to becoming a mom, I was all about the cardio workout.
Whether it is taking a family walk after dinner or walking a few laps up and down the hall at the office, everyone could move a little more throughout the day.
Just because you run, or consider yourself a runner, doesn’t guarantee you will always be at your ideal weight or even in top fitness shape. In fact, I know lots of “a little on the heavy side” runners who are barely in what would qualify as peak shape. I have to admit, I have been that person off and on during my years of running, racing and just plain exercising regularly.
We don’t have to train like an athlete to include physical activity in our daily routines. Whether it’s the Couch to 5K or an exercise routine before you get in the shower, we must find ways to move more throughout the day.
My group of friends these days mostly consists of those I have either trained with or raced against; and Shirl Koenig is my most trusted source of inspiration among those peers. Even though he is hardly in my “age group” he is always the one to watch out for.
I remember doing backbends over and over when I was a kid. Lean back, arms over head and just fall backwards to land perfectly on my hands. Never even a flicker of a thought about not making it or my arms giving in and landing on my head! I was super flexible and had not an ounce of fear in me. Those were the days…
What do these three things have in common? They all involve you lacing up your shoes and enjoying time with others outdoors.

Since I was a teenager, I had this quest to master the art of meditation and yoga. As a typical female that worries way too much about way too many things, the thought of quieting my mind through meditation and practicing yoga held great appeal.
