Tubshroom I know what you are thinking...."Another product endorsement"? Well, the answer is yes. I am endorsing another product. This one took me by surprise. The issue we were having is a perpetually clogged drain in the shower due to my long hair. Those basket type hair catchers don't work well, and they are really gross to clean. Because our tub is relatively new, we were concerned about permanent damage, so I did some research. What I found was the Tubshroom. I got it on Amazon and decided to give it a try. Let me tell you, this thing really [ + ]

Using the Beach Hi! As summer approaches, you should be thinking about your fitness routine and your commitment level. Do you need a proverbial kick in the tuchas? Now is the time to evaluate your program and make some changes as the hotter months approach. If you have access to a beach, your possibilities are endless. I must say, we are spoiled. We live on the ocean so we are continually inspired. We take walks for fitness, but also to clear our heads. We frequently relax by, swim, and dive in the water.  On nights when there is a full moon ri [ + ]

Fitbit….It’s NOT just another gadget!

Fitbit....It's NOT just another gadget! (In MY opinion, of course) I seldom review products, but I sometimes come across an item that warrants praise. This is one of those times. Recently, I found myself a bit unmotivated to get to the gym and move as much as I should. Sure I train my clients, but I was neglecting myself. I decided that I wanted to try a Fitbit, based on the glowing reviews it got from people I personally know and respect. To be totally honest with you, I wasn't prepared to be WOWed. I did my research, and decided that the Charge [ + ]

Miami Seaquarium- BUYER BEWARE! It is not often that I post something negative, but this story has to be told. Recently, our daughter, son-in-law and grandson came to visit us. I decided that for Pedro's holiday gift, I would pay for he and our grandson to have an encounter with the dolphins. For this "encounter", I paid just over $300.00 for both of them. At the time of purchase, which I did on-line, I was given the option of also purchasing observer tickets. The cost of these tickets were $53.00 each. Since there were 3 additional adults [ + ]

Hurricane Matthew First and foremost, our hearts go out to those who suffered Matthew's wrath. Secondly, we feel blessed that we very narrowly escaped any danger, and our families and friends are all safe. That being said, I would like to share with you all a story. The story is of our community and how we are being proactive in regards to safety and protection of our fellow residents. Our community consists of 4 buildings, with over 1300 apartments. What we experienced before, during, and after the hurricane was deplorable. The residents fe [ + ]

Jump Into the Next Fish Bowl!

Jump Into the Next Fish Bowl If you don't like your current routine, and you want different results, why not jump into the next fish bowl? We have all been through this before. We exercise, we eat right, we live a healthier lifestyle, and then something happens. We get bored, we get a bit lazier, we get a bit less motivated, and the next thing we know, we are moving backward instead of forward. My cure for this is simple: Change your routine. Oftentimes, professional athletes have a training cycle. They change up their routines for different r [ + ]

Olympics RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - AUGUST 02: The Olmypic Rings are displayed at the Copacaba beach ahead of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on August 2, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (Photo by Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images)   As these Olympic games come to a close, I am again saddened. For several weeks, I have had the pleasure of watching the world unite for a single cause. No fighting, little drama, and some amazing memories were made. It literally brings tears to my eyes when I witness people of such diverse backgrounds "playing f [ + ]

HYDRATION It's summertime, and it's hot. The good news is that most of us carry around a perpetual beverage bottle. The interesting news is that most people walking around with sports recovery drinks, or beverages specifically designed to re-hydrate athletes are wasting money and basically making expensive urine. The truth is that unless you are sustaining activity for a prolonged length of time, it may be boring, but water is your answer. Your electrolytes will not be out of balance, pending no medical issues, if you walk a block to the store. How [ + ]

Now What? It's summer, and it's HOT! It seems that we have gone from pleasant weather to walking into a wall of humidity overnight. Those goals of getting outside when it gets "warmer" have slipped by. Now what? I get it. We have all gone through this. We put off ________________(fill in the blank) until the timing is better, then low and behold, the time has come and gone, and the _________________has never been done. "I will clean the house tomorrow". Sound familiar? How about this one? "I will start a workout program next week." Let's address th [ + ]
