As this year comes to a close and we are ready to begin the New Year, most of us vow to make major changes in the coming weeks.

A mother and fitness professional often have two very similar characteristics, selfless and challenging.

For those of you who can eat whatever you want and never gain a pound, lucky you...or are you?Please be sure to have the same tests done at your doctor visit that the rest of the population has done. Just because you are thin does not mean there are not issues going on around your organs that need to be addressed, for your own well being.Please do not assume that all is well; take care of yourself like the rest of us need to do and you will feel so much better. Having more quality time with loved ones and favored activities is worth it, right?

At the end of a long day, pretty much everyone enjoys kicking back and unwinding with a drink or two. Generally speaking, light to moderate drinking isn’t going to have too much of an impact on your overall health, so for many people it’s not a big deal. But for anyone with serious weight loss or muscle gaining goals, those few drinks can be disastrous to their progress. Packing on the Pounds
Thanksgiving to me is time spend with loved ones. Thanksgiving is always celebrated with family and then we add friends into the mix, too. My mom has spoiled us all by getting up early and filling the house with the aroma of food being prepped for the turkey and the stuffing.
