Instead of working out on a bike or treadmill, why not do a little cardio cleaning at your house and get your workout in by scrubbing counters, cleaning toilets, and moving furniture before you vacuum?
This holiday season isn’t quite like any other due to COVID-19 and social distancing. My family cancelled our plans to visit my hometown in Cincinnati to reduce risk of exposure during traveling. I care for too many patients with medical issues like post-surgery, heart conditions, and frailty to put myself at risk and jeopardize their well-being too.
Despite not visiting family or inviting family/friends to join us for Thanksgiving dinner, we are still taking this time to thoroughly deep clean our house before decorating for Christmas. It’s kind of our tradition!
We cardio clean room by room before Thanksgiving so we can set up the tree on Thanksgiving Day and start to get in the festive mood of Advent, St. Nicholas Day, St. Lucia Day, and the 12 Days...

Fall is the perfect time to get back on track with consistent fitness.
It’s not too hot.
It’s not too cold.
It’s just right!
Enjoying the outdoors and breathing in fresh air can lift your mood and clear your mind. Physical activity helps maintain a healthy body weight and improves quality of life. Physical activity can also improve self-esteem and act as an antidepressant effect in people with depression.

Select one of these options or create one of your own. The important thing is to get...
Let’s Celebrate November!
We are full swing into Autumn now and I absolutely love this time of year. For me, November reminds me of gratitude. Taking time to be thankful is my equivalent of stopping to smell the roses!
What are you thankful for?
In such a tumultuous year, I think it’s especially important to ask yourself that question. For me, when I stop focusing on what I am grateful for, I start to get sucked into negativity and the Oh woe is me mentality.
Here’s a little tip I learned from a business mentor. Every morning, try to find 3 different things to be grateful for.
Let’s try it.
Today, I am grateful for:
My knees hurt. My hips hurt. My back hurts.
How am I supposed to lose weight if it hurts to move?
I can’t exercise! I’ll hurt more!
Does this sound familiar?

To Your Best Health,
Lunges are a common exercise that people do at home and at the gym.
Unfortunately, knee pain while lunging is a common complaint!
Lunges are a simple exercise to do but they can also wreak havoc if performed incorrectly.
Two tips make this exercise easier and more effective!
Tip #1 = Keep your knee in line with your 2nd toe
Tip #2 = Do not let your knee cross in front of your toes
Here’s a quick video from a recent Facebook Live to show you how to perform a lunge correctly:

To Your Best Health,
Since 2020 has been the year of the health pandemic due to COVID-19, more and more people are very acutely aware of how the quality of their physical health influences their ability to protect themselves against illness. The healthier we are physically, the stronger our immune system tends to be and the more likely we are to recover from diseases like the common cold, influenza, and even the coronavirus.
It is a fact that COVID-19 has wreaked more havoc on those with compromised health or a longer list of comorbidities such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, pulmonary conditions, and cardiac conditions. It’s not to say that COVID-19 has not impacted those without underlying health conditions, it’s just that the statistics indicate it has been more detrimental to those with chronic health issues.
When the body is not physically functioning at its best, it doesn’t feel as good. Joints feel stiff and achy. Muscles feel tight and sore.
We are full speed ahead into the Fall season!
I encourage you to take advantage of the cooler temperatures and not let the lingering beast of COVID-19 cancel all your plans.
Here’s a few tips to navigate through the fun in this very different season of Autumn.
Visit a local apple or pumpkin farm. Pick your favorites while supporting a local business at the same time. Bonus tip: the more you pick, the more you lift - you won’t need to go to the gym later!
Find a fun run or 5k to walk, run, or ruck. Support a local charity and fundraiser to help your community while also burning off some calories. If you can’t find a local in-person event that is maintaining social distancing, then find a virtual race you can compete in!
Walk or bicycle along a bike trail. Get out and enjoy nature. Take the kids and show them all the different shades of leaves. If you ride a bike, please wear your helmet.
Go fishing! With the cooler...
Can you believe it is already the Autumn season?
September is almost gone and we will head into the final three months of the year 2020!
This has certainly been a year like no other I can remember. Do you feel the same way?
In my business, I like to take inventory as each quarter ends and a new quarter begins.
I ask myself questions like:
What did I learn this past quarter?
What went really well?
What could have gone better?
What do I need to keep doing?
What do I need to stop doing and start doing instead?
These aren’t just great questions to ask for business. They also are great questions to ask personally.
Here’s a couple of examples that I have learned over the past quarter:
First, when I ask What went really well? I can say that for my family, making the decision to homeschool and enroll our daughters in an online academy went really well. Why did it go well? It went well for us because my husband and I had the peace...
If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, stop smoking, sleep more, reduce clutter, or do better at something, then you know how challenging it can be to stay on track with your goals.
It’s one thing to say I’m going to lose 10 pounds this month, It’s quite another thing to actually do it.
There are so many distractions that derail our best plans.
The birthday party where I’ll just have one small slice of birthday cake.
The office co-worker who was supposed to hold you accountable so you both stop smoking decides she can’t take another minute without her smoke break and pulls your right along with her. Well, I’ll just smoke one so she doesn’t feel bad about herself. I can stop anytime but I don’t want to lose my friend and our daily chats.
The long work day and your favorite movie just happens to be on so I’ll just watch for a few minutes. The laundry you were going to do doesn’t get done or the...
