Just kidding…but almost!!   As those of you who are Facebook friends with me already know, I’ve had a busy last couple of weeks. I spent a long weekend with some girlfriends up north, then drove straight to Chicago for a retail conference, was home one night to pack and unpack, and then headed the next day to Idaho for a family wedding!!   Phew!!  Read More

I recently got the chance to hang out with a handful of girlfriends for a weekend get away. As is often the case, the latest weight loss diets and nutrition trends was one of the hot topics of conversation. After sharing my thoughts with these ladies, Chris and I got to talking about how the tendency is to flock to and follow the advice of friends or celebrities who have lost a lot of weight, while we tend to discount the choices of those who have maintained an ideal body weight their whole lives.  Read More

Many of you might be surprised to find out that I was not always a “yogi.” In fact, when I purchased Body Language in 1997, I had never even tried a yoga class before. The reality is that it was the stress of buying this business while trying to juggle raising our 3 daughters that led me to yoga.   Read More

Nearly every summer for the past several years our family has headed to a place called Camp Arcadia!! My youngest daughter, Brie, says it’s her favorite place on Earth. It’s set right on Lake Michigan, the sunsets are amazing, and in addition to some extended family, all three of our daughters and their families were able to join us this year!!

Chris and I were in Jamie’s class the other day and she was telling us about a woman who iS said to be the oldest woman doing yoga. The comment was made to her that I can’t believe you can do yoga, and her response was that I am so grateful I GET to do yoga. It’s a gift not a practice based on restrictions or accomplishments.

Yep it’s true!! I would say it was a tough love gesture but nonetheless I don’t get it back until July 1st. What??? I have to admit that her reasoning was right on. I love the challenge of getting my steps in. It’s a personal challenge but also fun to compete with friends and family members. But, what started as an awareness tool has recently become a deterrent to balancing my workouts with yoga.  Read More

I was in Melinda’s Zumba Gold class this am and at the end she always takes a little time to ask everyone to share what’s going on in their lives. She then announced to us that it was “choose-day”. Tuesday with a choice. Get it?? A great message for ANY day but perhaps even more valuable since we were setting out for an adventure to the zoo with our 3 grandsons!! Need I say more??  Read More
