For this last week of February, let’s do a Plank Challenge! If you can’t hold it for the entire time, drop to your knees to finish. If you need more support, start on your knees. You can take as long a break between exercises as you need to but try to make them shorter each […]

Today, I did the Pilates Fix routine from the 21 Day Fix workout program by Beachbody. I am in love with Pilates! This routine worked every muscle in my body but in a relaxing, slow burn kind of way. It felt restorative rather than taxing. So it was quite fitting that a fellow Sjogie should […]

Focus T25 is accessible to everyone […]

I love peanut butter. I could sit with a jar of all natural peanut butter and a spoon and eat until my heart’s content….until I read that a serving is TWO Tablespoons! And what was even worse, when I used an actual tablespoon to measure it, the HORROR I felt! My regular spoon was equivalent […]

Then break it into manageable and practical steps. One of my resolutions this year is to start and finish Tai Cheng. […]

Food as Fuel and Medicine This is something I think about often. I’m in the middle of reading several books on the topic. Yes, there are conflicting ideas out there and only more time will tell which is the best approach … if there is a best approach. It’s more likely that there are a […]
