“If you don’t use it, you lose it”. “A rolling stone gathers no moss”. At one time or another we have all either heard these expressions or said them ourselves. Well, the time has come for you to MOVE IT and put those words into action!

Learning new skills always sounds good until I jump in and determine it is never as easy as I would like. Last month I decided to try yoga after seeing yet another fabulous body on a magazine cover all thanks to a proper workout. Pilates. Yoga. It seemed everyone was involved but me.

It is fairly common for individuals to engage in a variety of exercise activities and at different rates of intensity. This can make it challenging to evaluate just how much activity they are actually doing across the week.

While in Vermont recently, I took advantage of the opportunity to run through the scenic countryside. This provided some beautiful scenery, but also tough terrain. The paths included runs up steep hills and mountain side roads.
