Angela’s Favorite Things 2017

by Angela on December 4, 2017

You know how Oprah has her favorite things list during the holidays every year?  Well this is sort of like that, only it’s not.  For one, I’m not Oprah and I’m definitely not giving anything away.  But I still thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite things that I use on […]

Finding Mindfulness

by Deena on November 7, 2017

At a time when we are always connected and generally distracted, is it any surprise that we are struggling to connect with the things we really value? Our sense of wonder, our ability to create, our true connections to one another. How does one go about being present and mindful? What does being mindful even […]

What’s in your pill box?

by Angela on July 6, 2016

Who takes vitamins every day?  I go through phases.  For about 10 years, I took a daily birth control pill.  That was easy.  It was small and I could take it without water. It kept my periods predictable and, well, kept me from getting pregnant!  For 6 years I took a daily breast cancer preventative […]

Getting Healthy…Again

by Angela on July 4, 2016

I’m making a commitment to document again. I don’t say “write” because I’m not a writer. But I haven’t documented in a while because I keep discouraging myself. So this documentation is for me. It’s my motivator to get healthy. I stopped posting things on this blog because it made me feel insufficient and incompetent. […]

Beachbody 21 Day Fix – Week 1 review

by Deena on November 26, 2014

So I’ve finished week 1 of Beachbody’s 21 day fix and I must say I really love this program.  I love the variety of the exercise program and the simple eating plan.   I’ve been doing the program with my Beachbody coach (who also happens to be a friend) Elaine and a group of 7 […]

The Everyday Road to a 10-Miler – Week 2

by Angela on November 23, 2014

Week 2 of my 10-Miler training was GREAT. It went something like this: Monday: Tuesday: Wednesday: Thursday: Friday:   No, your eyes did not deceive you. I actually did nothing last week. I take that back, I did go to my dance class on Monday, but that works more of my brain than my body. […]

Beachbody’s 21 day fix – getting started

by Deena on November 17, 2014

Over the past few months, I had come to the realization that something had to change in my lifestyle, but I wasn’t quite sure what it was.  By mid-afternoon most days, I would find myself completely exhausted, to where I really just wanted to curl up somewhere and take a nap.  In addition to being […]

The Everyday Road to a 10-Miler – Week 1

by Angela on November 14, 2014

The last time I ran more than 3 miles was March 2012.  Let’s do the math…2 years and 8 months ago.  A lot can happen in almost 3 years, but in my case, not much happened on the running front. I just stopped. The race I ran was an awesome race.  It’s one of the […]

The Transformation Workout

by Angela on July 7, 2014

I have been on a little exercise hiatus lately, so it’s been hard to write about my previous workout plan knowing I haven’t been following it lately.  I must admit, I’m in a rut.  I had some minor surgery a couple weeks ago to remove some abnormal cells on my cervix (which all came back […]
