Angela asks: So this past summer I have let myself go.  I have joint achiness, reflux and of course gained more than I want to admit.  How do I get back on track? Great question Angela.  During the summer it is not unusual to get into a relaxed schedule and frame of mind.  The summer […]

Dog Days of Summer

August 12, 2015 by


This summer has been a bit late getting to us but finally it has arrived – sun, heat and humidity.  I love it! We have spent every weekend away from home on our boat.  This is a great get away for us.  A place to relax, let down, and enjoy friends and family.  For us, […]

Journey to My Life’s Purpose: September

September 3, 2014 by


This past month I have been in a HUGE detox. WOW it has been a big one! I feel I am pretty used to feeling detox symptoms in the body and I am usually able to keep my brain in check.  But, this last week with an exposure to a pesticide, my brain has gone […]

Does this sound familiar?  You went on vacation and upon your return you’re feeling a little less motivated than you were a week ago, or perhaps shocked at the scale, discouraged about eating dessert at a graduation party (EACH graduation party for the past 7 weekends), maybe drank alcohol at cookouts, concerts or out to […]

September 3, 2012 by


I’ve had a major lifestyle change recently, and not one I chose!  The 40 foot motorcoach that I’ve called home for the last 2 years suddenly caught fire due to a (unbeknownst to me) recalled refrigerator.  We switched gears immediately to couch surfing with 3 dogs (oh boy was that fun) for a few weeks and finally […]

What comes to me is how happy the summer makes me feel and the obvious joy I see in others during the summertime.  I absolutely LOVE the warm sunshine, getting to spend extra time with my two sons, the luscious fresh fruits and vegetables, hiking in Glacier Park, […]
