First of all, I have to tell you that I have been positively overwhelmed by the outpouring of support I have received regarding my antics encouraging us to eat more whole grains. In fact, as we continue our Eat Bread, Raise Dough challenge through the month of December, I am considering it my mission to raise awareness about the benefits of including more whole grains in your diet and am hoping to dispel many of the myths associated with carbs. So here goes...

This time of year with the approaching of Thanksgiving, we are reminded to stop…pause…and consider all that we have to be grateful for. The simple act of counting our blessings actually changes our brain chemistry…not only making us more content, but actually making our brains healthier as well. Of course for many found at the top of that gratitude list are our family and friends. We all appreciate being surrounded by people who love and support us but you might be interested to know that the more positive connections we have in our lives (spouses, kids, friends, pets…) the happier and healthier our brains are as well.  Read More

The other day I was sitting in my office working and I overheard 2 students chatting...Student one said, “Did you know that there are over 30 grams of carbohydrates in a banana??” Student two replied, "I just heard that tomatoes are high in carbs!!” I did everything I could not to jump out of my seat and set them straight BUT, I contained myself and decided instead to make this month's Body's Blast board be, in part, an education on the value of GOOD CARBS!! And assure you that you CAN EAT Bananas, Tomatoes & even whole grain breads!!   Read More

As I drive back from a trip in the upper peninsula, I’m awed by the change in the color of the leaves even in just a couple of days time!! It made for beautiful scenery as we 4 wheeled along the trails as well!!  Read More

First of all you need to know that I am truly a massage junkie!!  I love everything about getting a massage…the chill time…the fact that its so good for my muscles and connective tissue AND of course because it feels SO good. Massage therapists are always amazed by how fast I dive under those covers and am ready to be rubbed!!  Read More

Two of my favorite things start a day apart from each other...BL's Yoga Teacher Training kicks off on the 17th, and the next season of Dancing with the Stars on the 18th. Now I know you must be thinking that there couldn't possibly be a correlation between these 2 exciting events, but I will beg to differ!!!

I’m sure many of you would agree with me that if you were asked to sum up Body Language in one word you may say “community”! We work really hard to foster an environment where students and staff alike feel connected and welcome. In fact, when designing our space for our recent remodel, we even created a common ground we call the “Link” intended to offer students and staff a place to link or connect, to hang out and chat and get to know one another.

I just got back from a girlfriend trip and as part of our adventures we went “mucking.”  I know, I hear you… what the heck is mucking, it sounds terrible, and why would anyone electively do it??  Well the pictures pretty much tell all…you strap on tall plastic boots (that we actually purchased just for this adventure) and walk in the mud.  Read More
