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

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.
One thing I do every spring is take a little trip to my local farmers' market to check out the fresh spring produce. I’m always amazed at the bright colors, flavors, and value of fresh in-season fruits and veggies. There’s nothing better!
Here’s my top 10 fruits & veggies list:
Asparagus. Depending on where you live, most asparagus is harvested in the spring before June. I like t... Continue Reading

Dear QVC friends and the Nature’s Code ONE World,
If you watched our Nature's Code ONE—Supplement Your Health show in January or February, then you saw our display of the foods you need to eat on a daily basis to obtain all the nutrients you need to maintain your good health.
Many of us (me included!) just don’t eat like that every day, so taking multivitamins are a simple way to help fill nutritional gaps.
I may not always eat right, especially when I’m on the go, getting my kids to school or traveling for business, but I do know one thing: breakfast really is... Continue Reading

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:
