Over the weekend I went on a much-needed getaway with my husband (of 10 years!), and left my kids behind with their grandparents. Is it wrong that I wish I were still away? No, I don't think it is. We spent the weekend in Beaver Creek, CO (near Vail), and had such a wonderful time. … Continue reading A little weekend romance
Unless you live under a rock, you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everywhere you look, it's pink, pink, pink: pink t-shirts, pink banners, even the NFL teams are sporting pink on the field. And while I'm lucky that no one in my close circle has been affected by breast cancer, I know that … Continue reading How healthy is your family?
At my old job, one of the things I loved doing was showing people how to turn up the intensity on their workout. Whether we were experimenting with fresh exercises, or I was helping a new exerciser take their fitness to the next level, showing folks how to change up their workout was a sure … Continue reading 5.5 tips to bust through a plateau
The other reason I like October? Today is my anniversary! Here's where it all started. Junior Prom, 1994. Look at all that hair–on both of us! Next up, Senior Ball, 1995.

I am feeling more like the later, which is definitely NOT the case every Monday. In addition to being the beginning of the week, … Continue reading Monday odds and ends
I'm not sure why I love fall so much. The other seasons don't even come close to comparing. Winter is nice and cozy, and I do enjoy snow, a crackling fire, and of course, the holidays. Spring is pretty, pastel, jelly bean, and birthday fresh. Summer, especially in Colorado, means mountains, camping, wildflowers, and warm … Continue reading New fall favorite

Really, what is going on in the world today? In case there is any confusion, I support Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to expand the Healthy Hospital … Continue reading New York strives for healthier hospitals
I remember when Garrett was about 3 and we were contemplating registering him for his first season of soccer. My sister-in-law, who has three boys, said, "Wait as long as you can. You'll be spending your entire weekend at games soon enough." We decided to follow her (excellent) advice, and even a year later, the … Continue reading It’s official–I’m a soccer mom
Yesterday, I wrote about my love of the Fox show, So You Think You Can Dance. It's a fantastic show, showcasing quality dancers and compelling personalities. The producers (or whoever) have formulated brilliant television. But really, it's all about the dancing. If I could come back in another life, and get to choose my talent, … Continue reading So, you think YOU can dance?
