Dear QVC friends,
Hope you’re having a fantastic 2014 so far! Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? If you did, how do you feel about your accomplishments so far?
Many American adults make resolutions every year, with losing weight consistently at the top of everyone’s list. Unfortunately, many New Year’s resolutions fail by the end of the year. Seems like everyone starts out strong and determined to meet their goals but after a few weeks, their efforts begin to slack off a bit until completely dropping off by the end of the year.
So why do resolutions fail? Jus... Continue Reading

It’s mid-January. Are you still on track with your decision to take better care of yourself in 2014? Most of us have slacked off a little by now and once again think of eating nutritiously and exercising with dread and exasperation knowing that we "should" engage but can easily think of a million excuses… so the days quickly pass by, the guilt sets in, and your vitality wanes.
Having my own AeroPilates machine at home has made my fitness routine an easy, fun-filled, and convenient daily part of my life. I love that I can fit in between all my other commitments and obligations, ... Continue Reading

Make a decision that you'll only have nutritious foods in your house. Fill your kitchen with fresh vegetables and fruits, nuts, seeds, and a wide variety of proteins. If you want to have chocolate ice cream as a treat, go out to the ice cream shop to get it. If there's a half-gallon in the fridge, it's more likely to become a nightly downfall.
Here's a list of my top 10 snacks that'll help keep you full:
1. Raw veggies & 1/2 cup of hummus
2. An apple and string cheese3. 1/2 cup of cottage cheese & mandarin oranges4. 2 large hard-boiled eggs5. Greek yogurt & strawberries6. Ap... Continue Reading

There are so many causes of stress in our bodies. While sometimes this stress is emotionally based, more often it's physical, emerging from a bad diet and lack of gentle movement. This idea led me to deeply examine gentle forms of exercise like AeroPilates and yoga.

Some of what we perceive as skin aging is due to day-to-day sun exposure…not sun exposure on the beach or during a summer jog in the park when we have the common sense to wear sunscreen. No, it's day-to-day sun exposure at times when we least suspect it, such as when we're walking to the parking lot on an overcast winter day, dropping off the dry cleaning on an early spring morning, or driving our cars on a not-so-bright winter day. Day-to-day sun exposure happens when we least expect it, yet it plays a role in skin aging. It leaves us with no other choice but to wear sun block, like on... Continue Reading

I love Big, Beefy, Boys....and even more if they're Bald :~) You may have heard me loving refer to my husband as a "Sasquatch" or "Big Boy."

When QVC brought me the Green Coffee Bean Extract with Svetol, my first concern was that it might be a form of coffee. I didn’t need any more caffeine in my system. As a busy mom of three year olds, someone who works crazy hours and works out like a nut, I need caffeine but it’s a fine line between awake and jittery.
Here's the thing the caffeine content is no more than what is found in an 8 ounce cup of many types of decaf coffee. This was great news, because I really wanted to like this product. Not because I really need to lose weight (though it is... Continue Reading

One of the most intriguing and inspiring stories of this NFL season is the Indianapolis Colts. They were the doormat of the NFL last season, finishing with the worst record in the league, they changed coaches and quarterbacks. Not many people expected much of them this season. Early in this year, their head coach, Chuck Pagano, was diagnosed with leukemia and had to take an extended leave. As of my writing this, the Colts are in second place in the AFC South division with a 5-3 record and are riding a three- game winning streak. Qu... Continue Reading

The Atlanta Falcons stand alone as the only unbeaten team in the NFL after Week 7 of the 2012 season. However, they need to be on upset alert as they put their perfect 6-0 record on the line against the Philadelphia Eagles this week in the “Battle of the Birds.” The Eagles offense can soar high on the wings of Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. Of course, the Falcons have been flying high all season behind quarterback Matt Ryan and receivers Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez.
The Houston Texans have the second best record in the league at 6-1. After putti... Continue Reading

Week five of the NFL season brought us history and a glimpse into the future.
Drew Brees passed his way past the late, great Johnny Unitas in the record books by throwing a touchdown pass to Devery Hendersen with two minutes and fifty-eight seconds to go in the first quarter against the San Diego Chargers. That marked 48 consecutive games in which Mr. Brees has thrown a touchdown pass thereby setting a new record. He threw two more touchdown passes in that game and led his Saints to their first victory of the season. I was happy for Drew and the Saints (and relieved since I ... Continue Reading

Four weeks of the NFL season are in the books and the big headline is: “Anything Can Happen on Any Given Week!” The NFC East is a prime example of how tight the competition has become. The Philadelphia Eagles lead the division with a record of 3-1. Their three victories have come by a total of just four points! The other three teams in the division have matching records at 2-2.
Another sign of parity in the NFL is the fact that only three teams remain undefeated. The Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals a... Continue Reading

"85% of it is diet." Astounding. That's what a trainer told me once about the exercise to diet ratio, and the older I get, the more I'm sure that it's true. I think we all overestimate the calories we burn, and underestimate the calories we eat, so let's talk about the eating. There are so many different eating programs out there it can make your head spin. So which one is right for you? The one you can live with! If it's unhealthy, you can't live with it. If it doesn't take into account your lifestyle and preferences, you can't live with it. So a h... Continue Reading
