All about being on the TODAY show

Hey all!  I hope you’re having a great day.  I’ve been busy since we returned from New York and I’m trying to get a handle on things.  I really want to clean up and get things ready for the New Year.  Just in case you didn’t get a chance to catch our segment on the Today Show you can watch it here. It was a really great experience being on the show. It was exciting to sit in the green room and see all the stars come through.

Get active during Thanksgiving holiday

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we’re all going to be eating to enjoy the holiday.  I hope everyone does enjoy the holiday without feeling guilty.  But this is also good time to be with family and friends and you can get active.  Everything is better with a group anyway. My mom had knee replacement surgery yesterday so I had to forgo any active recovery I was planning on doing yesterday.  This morning was a different story.  I felt like I needed to get out to work in for many reasons but I just miss breaking a sweat.  I hit the treadmill… View Post
