People often ask me how I incorporate fitness into my everyday life.
Well, I simply choose the path of more resistance! By that I mean walking on an unstable surface instead of a flat one; taking the stairs not the elevator; standing over sitting; running over walking; walking fast instead of ambling; sitting before lying; lunging deeper than squatting.
This simple philosophy helps my body stays trim, toned, and strong. But in reality, energy actually follows a path of least resistance so when actually choosing a fitness regimen I always prefer to find tools and systems that incorporate my w... Continue Reading

We've all experienced that moment. We hear the message from the doctor's office that our test results are in and to call back as soon as possible. That moment. Then, with great relief, we hear the words, “Everything is normal” and go back to our busy lives. But for some women, that's not the case.
Some women learn that they have cancer, and they begin the daunting task of balancing treatment with the needs of their family and the demands of their profession. Leaving work entirely to fight this battle is not an option for most women. That's why I'm honored we're supporting Cancer a... Continue Reading

I’m so glad spring has finally sprung (at least in most of the country). I just love the sense of renewal and rebirth that comes with springtime. It really is life-affirming.
