I love bite-size foods because they allow you to get the tastes you crave without needing to have a large portion of the foods you desire. If you watched my video, “Bagels, My #1 Guilty Pleasure” you’ll know that I’ve had a lifetime love affair with this magical creation. I do limit my consumption of bagels because most contain a lot of calories and carbs, but I have learned many ways to reduce these and those tips are contained in my video. But sometimes I want the taste, chew and mouth feel of a real New York bagel and when I do, I eat a Bantam Bagel.Read More
I know you’ve seen them and I’m sure some of you wonder what they are, so I’m going to explain the advantage of using a BOSU Ball, actually named a BOSU Balance Trainer. BOSU is an acronym for Both Sides Up (or “Utilized”) because this “half” ball can be used on either side.

I love shoes but I also love comfort, especially now that I am middle-aged. I always want to be fashionable but sometimes the pain I feel after wearing a pair of shoes is so unbearable I just won’t wear them again. The Banner Wedge Sandal from White Mountain is hands down the best summer shoe I ever bought. I purchased two pairs over two years ago from QVC.com — one pair is black and the other is a brushed gold. These shoes appear in lots of my posts because I wear them all the time.Read More
I really don’t like to stretch but for me it’s a must. I had back surgery about 15 years ago and a hip replacement last year. These surgeries coupled with my active workout schedule have made the lower half of my body very stiff. When possible I prefer to be stretched out by a trainer (referred to as partner stretching) but this is usually not an option.Read More
I love guacamole. I would love to sit in a tub of it surrounded by bowls of chips and dippers. I used to make my own because the packaged products either tasted off, were full of fillers or just way too fattening. If I wanted a good quality pre-made guacamole I needed to go to a specialty store that carried high end prepared foods.
