The tip of my nose is tingly-kind of numb. It seems to go numb when I am stressed, overtired or upset. It's been going on for about two weeks so I visited my doctor. He informed me my blood pressure was high...really high.
Low blood pressure runs in my family. Which is ironic considering obsesity also runs in our family. Yes we are an enigma - fat with low blood pressure.
So the fact that my pressure is running high was a cause for concern. "Have you been stressed out…Read more

I signed up for the 28-day action plan yesterday and am hoping that it'll get me back on track in 2011.
Today, I browsed through Week One's shopping list and was surprised that I had most of the ingredients already on hand. I shopped for the remaining ingredients this afternoon:
Ingredients I purchased, but normally have on hand:

Hurray! If the choice was Shred or dead, I was leaning toward dead, but I have survived two days of Jillian Michaels' Shred workout video!
If I use my arms to pull, I can still make it up the stairs!
I got my Tweet on, because I'm going to drive people crazy for the month of January Tweeting here about my exercise routine. It keeps me accountable, and satisfies my nefarious nature of bugging people. My…Read more

This time last year I was thrilled to be back home after a whirlwind tour of Fairfax, Greensboro, and Raleigh, enjoying newlywed status, and blissfully unaware that I was pregnant. I'm getting a bit choked up just thinking of all the things I have to be grateful for heading into 2011. My strong, curious, beautiful daughter, Cadence, tops the list along with my caring and supportive husband, Jason. As I think about goals for the next year, nurturing my family tops that list as well.…Read more

The choice of my food is not my challenge but the amount of time I devote to physical activities daily.
I reduced my walking program of 36 miles a week 3 years ago when pain in my feet made it less than enjoyable........
And now, I have realized that my simple avoidance made the situation even worse. So, with good shock absorbent shoes & a good dosage of painkillers, I will take my feet on the sidewalks again.

Ah, New Year’s Eve. A year ago, I was looking over the Whole Life Action Plan and thinking, what the hell have I gotten myself into, agreeing to blog? I was hopeful and excited, a little anxious wondering what I was supposed to write about, if I was going to be able to do “it” right, and that “it” could have…Read more
Truth? I'm afraid I won't be able to stick with this 28 day plan.
Does that sound pathetic? Four little weeks is nothing. There's no reason I should be afraid.
Right? Am I alone here?
So then I think -- okay if you can't commit to changing your habits then you need to stop complaining about your hips and the fact that your office is a disaster and just give in to the fact that you drink three glass of chardonnay when you should only have one.

One of my favorite "reasons" for why I don't treat my body better happens to be the very same reason I want to reclaim my health: my kids. I want nothing more than to be healthy and active for my three girls. I want to run after them with energy. I want to model a healthy and mindful approach to body image and eating and exercise.
But my girls? They are one of the reasons I seem to spin my wheels. They need so much of my energy, and I find that they have nearly taken it all.…Read more
