Halloween Happiness starts at the beginning of October for me 🙂 That’s when I begin my countdown to one of my favorite holidays of the year. The reason I love Halloween so much is . . . you guessed it — THE CANDY!!! There are three days of the year that I allow myself all the candy I want — my birthday, Valentine’s Day and Halloween!As you know from my posts, I am extremely careful about what I eat so I do have a method to enjoying all the candy I want without packing on the pounds. There are a lot of different approaches so choose what works best for you.Read More
It’s time to go outside into this crisp, autumn air and have some fall fitness fun with Phyllis! Let’s use the season’s bounty instead of traditional weights to exercise. My big pumpkin weighs about fifteen pounds, the small acorns are about four pounds, and the goose neck squashes are about ten pounds each. So get to the supermarket, get your weights, and let’s get started!
I take my exercise routine seriously but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to have fun. It’s good to mix things up and what better way then to go outside and workout. This fall fitness routine engages your entire body so even though it may look a little silly it will get the job done!Read More

While I always say yes to indulging now and then, I advise against taking any sort of hiatus or break with staying active. In fact, I think Autumn is the perfect time to establish healthier habits to stay motivated in our wellness journeys as we barrel toward the holidays.Read More
I like to keep things simple. Staying fit and healthy when you’re a middle aged woman is no easy task — even those of us who follow a good nutritional and exercise program have problems figuring things out. Sometimes I like to mix things up but there are some rules I always adhere to.Read More
There’s nothing I love more than the summer months! Warm weather means time spent outdoors with family and friends. It also means a season jam-packed with tempting barbecues and cocktails. But don’t fret – the sunshine also provides us with unique opportunities to shake up our fitness routines and slim down this summer!Read More
