  • 4 Tips on How to Enjoy Holiday Celebrations Without Weight Gain

    4 Tips on How to Enjoy Holiday Celebrations Without Weight Gain

    One of the biggest stresses most people feel about the holidays is all the overeating and the weight gain. Then come January they resolve to lose the weight, which usually doesn't happen (that is a separate Blog). People have lots of holiday parties and gatherings for drinks. They don't want to be rude, and they want to have a good time. Here is the most important thing to remember, being with the people and enjoying their company is the most important part of the time of year. Yes, that work event is to enjoy the schmooze, so you have good work relations, so you keep your job or excel at it. Enjoy the process to staying financially solvent. 😊 Hopefully most of your events are with ....

  • Happy Thanksgiving 2022

    Happy Thanksgiving 2022

    2022 has proven to be a fast and wild ride. This year with most all pandemic restrictions lifted and returning back as close to normal, life’s demands seem to be more and faster than pre-pandemic days. The economy has been a mixed bag, lots of available jobs, but inflation an issue, and wild decent of the stock market has left many feeling shaky about the future. However, Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness and gratitude for all that we do have. While some of us are still unable to gather together in the physical presence of family and friends for the holidays, we hope to extend a message of comfort and hope: it is getting better slowly. I am grateful for my supportive and kind ....

  • Caution Sarah is Amazing! From Being Immobile to Pain Free Motorcycle Weekends!

    Caution Sarah is Amazing! From Being Immobile to Pain Free Motorcycle Weekends!

    Just a little less than a year ago Sarah was “barely able to move” and perform day to day household activities. Her physical activity was very little, and she found day to day activities to be a challenge. When she had worked with trainers before it would eventually lead to her being in more pain with her medical conditions in full flare up. When Sarah started working with me, she was eager and showed up every time. As we began our work, she was getting stronger each time little by little. She found she was able to perform daily tasks a little easier (carrying in the groceries wasn’t difficult). When she would do motorcycle day or weekend trips, we would prepare with ....

  • One Powerful Practice that Allows Older Adults to Age Well?

    One Powerful Practice that Allows Older Adults to Age Well?

    Mental Health is not something that most people are comfortable talking about in this country. Which is one of the reasons why we have a Mental Health Awareness Month in May. It is important to talk about and take away the taboo of mental health conditions. I have had my bouts with situational depression and being overwhelmed. Not to mention a traumatic childhood that led to PTSD. One of the tools, in managing my mental health and mood, that has been very effective and beneficial to me is staying physically active. Exercise has been shown to help reduce symptoms of many mental health conditions. Some of the strongest evidence for the mental benefits of exercise centers on depression and ....

    On National Arbor Day Standing Tall for Proven Good Health?

    With a tip of the hat to National Arbor Day, I thought I would talk about the importance of Good Posture. Good Posture means people are standing tall and many native American Cultures consider trees “standing people”. Hence the link in my head (I am a little touched 😊). Good Posture isn’t just to look proper or have that old tape of your mom “sit up straight” stop ringing in your ear. Good Posture is one way all of us can better our health and increase our confidence. Yep, you read that right. Here is a list of some of the things good posture does for your health: Reduce low back pain Prevent osteoporosis Lower the risk of heart attack and stroke Improve ....

  • Mike went from multiple hospital visits a year to Fantastic Checkup - Congrats !!

    Mike went from multiple hospital visits a year to Fantastic Checkup - Congrats !!

    When Mike first started working with me, he had been in the hospital multiple times in the previous year, had bad arthritic knee pain, and hadn’t been keeping up with his physical fitness for years. We have been working together for about 18 months. In that time, he has better movement, less knee pain, gotten stronger and can perform daily tasks more easily. Also, he has gotten back to activities he loves like hiking. His knee pain has reduced so much it has even surprised him. He recently exclaimed, “Wow! No knee pain!”, while going downhill at Butler Sanctuary. Mike has been putting in the work and being careful with the nutrition changes. He also has not needed to be ....

  • No more Grilling!!?!!  Season Over

    No more Grilling!!?!! Season Over

    So sorry ☹ grilling season is over for all my buddies. I love me a cookout with yummy hamburgers and all the fixins. Which is ok to have every once in a while, but when you are serious about your long-term health those “hamburgers” need a little change up. I prefer my turkey burgers that I can make any time and any season. I know some of you are saying, “turkey burgers are dry and tasteless”. Not mine! I promise mine are moist and delicious. No, they don’t taste like read meat, but they aren’t supposed to. The turkey burgers I make use the 97% fat free or above. Yes, they can be moist! This is a quick and healthy recipe. Ingredients: 18 or 20 oz ....

  • It's all Greek to me...

    It's all Greek to me...

    I bought dried cranberry beans from a local farmers market along with some fresh summer squash here in the Hudson Valley New York. I wanted to try something new while supporting the local farmers. I looked around through all my cookbooks and found an interesting recipe “Tangy Limas with Squash and Tomatoes” in Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home (p.176). It wasn’t the same kind of beans so I needed to adapt some items. The recipe called for frozen lima beans. Which means I had to look up the conversions to figure out how much cranberry beans would yield the same as 10 oz of frozen lima beans. Isn’t it great we have the internet these days and don’t have to ....

  • Does seeing a set of stairs intimidate you? Does it invoke memories of intense knee or low back pain?

    Does seeing a set of stairs intimidate you? Does it invoke memories of intense knee or low back pain?

    Well, this is my stair master! I was told that I wouldn’t be able to walk by the time I was 35 without knee replacements by one orthopedist. Both orthopedists in my teenage years said I had bad knees and would eventually have to have them replaced. Today I am 48 with my original knees and I go up and down these 250 stairs 3 times with no pain! (That is all the way to the top where the sun breaks out again! 250 stairs times 6= 1500 total stairs) Stairs and the inability to navigate them are more reasons why older adults lose their independence. Let’s talk about what makes stairs hard and what you can do to make it easier on your knees; not to mention have you going up and ....
