I went out for a run a couple of weeks ago, and felt some serious pain in my hip right over my iliac crest.  Weird.  It actually hurt enough that I took 2 full weeks off of running (other activity didn’t seem to bother it, thankfully).

I did a lot of stretching—spe...

 I once had a boss do the nicest thing for me…she threw me a birthday party at work and she didn’t serve cake and ice cream. 

Nope.  No cake, no ice cream…instead she brought cashews, cheese, grapes, and dark chocolate—all my absolute favorite foods!   It was a lov...

What if I had a magic mirror (that would be awesome, wouldn’t it??) that gave me the ability to show you what your life would look like at age 80 (or 85 or 90) if you continued living as you are now versus if you began to make some small changes toward living a healthi...

Most likely*, if you are over the age of 10, you cannot eat whatever you want, whenever you want without restraint and...

Resolutions have a bad reputation.

I don’t know what the statistically accurate rate of failure is for the New Year’s resolutions is (honestly, I don’t think anyone does), but the general consensus seems to be that resolutions are destined to fail.  So why bother??

I remember sitting on my Mom’s lap [seriously] and crying at age 15 both because I had finally gotten my period and I was happy AND because I had finally gotten my period and I was sad.

I was super ambivalent about growing up.  I looked younger than my friends, and alth...

Moderate indulgence…is there such a thing? How do you walk that line between satisfaction vs. gluttony?

Approaching a big food holiday like Thanksgiving with an attitude of moderate indulgence totally changes things up.  It’s pretty much a win-win in that you can enjoy...

There is something magical about starting and ending your day with things that nourish your mind, body, and spirit.

Over time I have developed some morning and evening habits or rituals that really help me to feel on purpose, clear in my intentions, and, well, kind of b...
