When do you think of, hear, or say the word ‘diet’, how do you feel? Personally, I do not LIKE the word and how it is used. It has a negative connotation to me and here is why… Reason #1 Dieting was part of my life from my teens thru my mid-30’s when I started......

Since the outbreak of the virus pandemic, the majority of people have been working from home. For many, this has been an interesting experience and they have learned and adapted their habits and routine. In cities like Atlanta, GA, where traffic hours are from 6am to 9pm, stress has not been part of the driving......

Those who make time for self-care to manage higher levels of stress and uncertainty will adapt faster and come out of this stronger.......
Do you wonder why I often talk about motivation? There are a LOT of reasons why … but the biggest one is that motivation smoothes out a lot of bumps on your path to success. And I want you to be successful. It’s why I do what I do every day! 🙂 Here’s the thing.......

You can thank me later for this… It’s an insanely awesome (and easy) recipe that’s perfect for your own holiday parties, or to bring with you to a potluck.

Whether you’re feeding yourself or a group, this dip is perfect for any occasion and for any eating event–breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. I LOVE avocados.

The problem is that dips are loaded with calories, excess sodium, and lots of ingredients that can leave you feeling less than awesome!...
Usually, osteopenia and osteoporosis are thought of as an “elderly person’s disease.” Osteoporosis is referred to as a “silent” disease because many are unaware they have it until a fracture occurs.

I used to love to grill meats and poultry. Since my last expensive grill rusted out several years ago, just after three years I had purchased, I have not invested in a new one.
