The gains in diverse exercise

Fitness places don’t really appeal to me. Perhaps I secretly feel like I have to be fit in order to go to a fitness center. “That’s a common misconception,” says Lindsay Ashton of Revamp Personal Training in Morro Bay. I know she is right. How silly! You start a fitness routine to GET fit.

What do you eat, Jeanne?

Although I eat healthy and am thin, my diet might not be the right one for you.  The way I eat won’t necessarily be the answer to a healthy body composition for you.  There are too many things to consider, before copying my diet.  Besides the fact that my cholesterol is about 120 mg/dl, my blood pressure hovers around 90/60 mm/Hg, and my body fat is about 17.4%, I have celiac disease (CD).  This column will explain what CD is and how it relates to me.  It was written not only to teach you about another aspect of health, but also to share with you my pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

The Joy of Flying

You are dangling 25 feet in the air. Far below you is nothing but the hard warehouse floor. Holding you up is nothing but a sleek, slippery fabric which increasingly threatens to slide right out of grip with each passing moment.

Marathon-ing in New Orleans

Five friends find an excuse to race at NOLA.

It all started with a bucket list,  five girlfriends, running shoes and a plane ticket to New Orleans. Five women, but all sharing the singular goal of supporting one amazing friend. Heidi Wicka had decided that she would run but a single marathon in her lifetime, thus it best be someplace memorable. So when she told us that she had selected New Orleans as THE marathon, how could we not go to support her? Right? New Orleans, AKA NOLA, with Bourbon Street, great food, incredible history, and music that people live a lifetime to hear.
