My Diamond Story

Last Reply by azfiregirl 1398306343.217 | in Jewelry Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Diamonds can be small and diamonds can be big, but when they are given to you, from someone special, they all mean the same thing... I LOVE YOU FOREVER!! My husband and I met in college. We were best of friends for the first three years, but by Senior year.. We got all goo-goo, crazy in love with each other (that's a story for another time, LOL)... While he was in school, he worked at a movie theater, as the "ticket taker", to help support himself. He saved every penny and proudly went shopping for my engagement ring. (It must have been pretty scary for him, walking into a store and not know... Continue Reading

In Search of the Most Effective Total-Body Fitness?

In Health & Fitness, Hosts & Personalities

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
