Makeup Monday: Schedule

Morning sunshine.  How was our weekend? In my neck of the woods Saturday was buzzing with the hustle and bustle of the long awaited PROM 2017.   Abercrombie and FITness was well REPRESENTED by six stunning seniors.  Mostly Coppell High School students and FAITH Christian Academy in Grapevine.  The glitz and the glam was out and in full effect. “My […]

Explicit

The music today??  Somebody please help me with this.   Y’all, I love music and I never thought I would be the parent/mom to utter the words, “turn off that MUSIC!”  I mean my own mother never said such a thing. Besides I don’t bark orders, I actually YELL them! (I’m from a long line of yellers!)  Usually I yell […]

Gene Pool 

Before we dive into today’s deep subject, I want you to clear your mind and open your ears.  I want you to listen up and hear me loud and crystal clear.  What I speak next is pure truth. Healthy habits out perform good genetics. Is that profound and super exciting news or what?   Healthy habits run circles around the gene pool. […]

Admiration 

When is the last time you put yourself out there? Like literally stepped outside out of the box, took a chance outside of  the element and tried your hand at something new? My daughter…God’s gift…that teen queen I talk about all the time is one remarkable girl.  This kid has a tenacious spirit that motivates me to set bigger goals […]

MAKE UP your mind Monday

Happy Monday!  How did your weekend shake out?  Mine was super chill and laid back just the way I like it.  In fact, all was grande and wonderful until this morning at about 6:45am.  Now, if you don’t care to listen to me whimper about a small incident that played out this morning, simply scroll past this to the line […]

Just Imagine

Close your eyes, clear your head of the noise and erase all previous images from the day.  Grab a blank space and clean sheet of paper in your mind.  Take two giant, doctor’s office style, deep breathes. Now open your eyes so you can keep reading.  I’m about to make you think.  We will call it a visual exercise. As […]

Finding MOJO

Forget about finding Nemo and who really cares where Waldo is?  What we really need to find is the lost spark and charm that once moved us!  Where in the blankety blank sam hill did our MOJO go? Girls, we are mosiac creatures and when it comes to motivation, we get deep really fast.  What we forget is that motivation […]

Mindful Grubbing 

Today I’m held captive to staccato laughter and must begin with small side bar.  I was derailed from naming this blog post Mindful Munching because something in my goofy spirit and my girly snickering just couldn’t allow it. I literally couldn’t even write the first few sentences without COL, cackling out loud.  (take that teenagers)  I kept typing the words, “do you like […]

The struggle is REAL…

The worst thing imaginable to a blogger is accidentally deleting all of your beautifully scripted words.  The struggle is real.  Y’all, I had been writing this post since Saturday.  Yesterday morning it was finished. Complete!  It had been formatted, highlighted, spell checked and all of the links were plugged in.  All I had left to do was drop in a […]

Out of Place

I can’t be the only person who slightly gags and utterly grosses out at the mere thought of a hair brush laying on top of the kitchen counter. Anybody else feeling my vibe on this one?  How about a pair of tennis shoes or sweaty stinky socks lying on the dining table or counter top?  Do any either of these […]

Alcohol part 2 (BUZZED)

Good day friends.  Wow, I just gotta say that I had a shocking overwhelming response to my candid post about giving up alcohol until Easter. I had friends and strangers coming out of the wood work reaching out via email, text and private messaging. This feedback  was a ginormous surprise and blessed with me with a natural buzz! Still high and […]

Steadfast FITness

When you’re committed to a FIT lifestyle the heart beats in a new rhythm.  A steadfast heart is a heart that will not, under any circumstance, fall away from FITness.  This is not to be confused with a now and again cheat meal. ♥ Regardless of the uncertain uproar going on, no matter how much pressure is applied, the goal is […]

Happy Meal

Roll back the tapes for a moment.  Do you remember when McDonald’s first introduced the Happy Meal?  I sure do!  It was 1979.  I was about 6 or 7 years old and a prime candidate for begging, whining or whatever ir took to get one of the newly launched HAPPY MEALS!  As a bright-eyed young girl I just had to […]

A Darker Shade

This blog is mostly a place of FITness and health with a positive vibe.  I express and spin my views on FITness based on 20 plus years of dedicated “sweaty” experience. I bring a light-hearted humor with an encouraging bent toward integrating FITness into our pesky busy lives.  BUT today, I dare take a walk on a slightly darker side […]

Bold Beginnings

This post is not about coffee!  It’s about how you start your day! I operate under the assumption that there are two kinds of morning people, those who are graceful and collected and those who aren’t!  Which one are you? Are you one of those smooth morning routine types whose morning mimics a professional pit stop crew during a heated […]

Diet & Dating 

My Mr. Chicken Fry is full of unexpected spontaneous surprises.  He pulled a total date night doozie on me last night.  With it being Valentines and all I just assumed we would share a quaint family dinner out.  However our little social teen queen had other plans with a large group of girlfriends for a “Galentines” girls night out.  She […]

Mr. Chicken Fry

Hello you and welcome to the beginning of a brand new healthy and happy week!  I have never been so ready to get stuff done, workout, and feel accomplished.  For me, the last 10  days have been a bit of a downer.  My baby girl (teen queen) was diagnosed with the flu and on command coincidentally so was Mr. Chicken Fry!

Part 2: A will & A way

Where there is the slightest will, there is always a way!  How many times have you heard this eye rolling trite remark? Sure it’s a cheesy stale familiar cliché but I believe it deserves a healthy come back!  I have used this as a go to theme during the rapid changing phase of my 30’s! Hopefully you were inspired by last […]

I left her hanging: a funny story

I’m shamefully ready for winter to skedaddle!  Shoo…and get a move on!  This time of year I rely heavily on deep squats, steep incline treadmill cardio sessions, soaking salts and hot baths.  Also among the list is big warm sweatshirts, cozy sweatpants, bubbly champagne, football and LAUGHTER. With that being said, I desperately have to share a funny Friday FITness […]

A WILL & A WAY

As a 43-year-old wife, mother, FITness blogger and personal trainer, it’s most interesting to look back on my 20-year old and 30-year-old self.  What’s now so “in my face” obvious was then so utterly conventional and lack luster.  What I know now is that God was setting me up! Fresh out of college, I landed a fast paced Fortune 500 […]

Tid Bit Tuesday: OILY 

Last night I had a new client ask me a very poignant question.  She basically wanted to know my personal stance on using and or cooking with extra virgin olive oil.  What a greasy GREAT QUESTION!  If you are a loyal reader, It should be crystal clear that my eager new workout warrior doesn’t know me yet.  She obviously doesn’t […]

That girl

For the last six years I have had the privilege of training one special quirky little ray of ☀️ sunshine. That’s twice a week, two hours or more a week stretched out over 6 years!
