Suck It Up, Walk It Off and Do Your Job

Recently I experienced the biggest concern, worry, dilemma, fear, bane, nightmare of a Fitness Instructor.  No I didn't split my pants midway through class.  It was worse.  I woke up with a bum foot. I don't know how I did it exactly.  Foot ...

60 Minutes

One of my Ten Commandments is to exercise at least 60 minutes a day, four times a week. Some might wince when thinking about dedicating an hour of your day, actually just four days, to fitness and I have read many articles stating that busting it ...

Salmon with Cool Cucumber Salad

As I have often mentioned in my blog I hate waste.  There is nothing more annoying to me than buying a tub of sour cream for some chili I was making, use about half and have the other half go to waste, unused and molding in the fridge.  Money down ...
