by Angela on July 20, 2020

It’s been a rough week for me. I don’t know what triggered it, but my Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) has been a nightly struggle for me lately. If you suffer from this, you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, let me tell you what it feels like: Imagine every single nerve ending in […]

Here Comes the Sun

by Angela on June 29, 2020

I’m not sure when spring ended and summer began. It’s been a weird year so far, to put it mildly. But here we are in northern Virginia facing 90+ degree days, finding ways to venture outdoors, and planning, canceling and re-planning (hopefully not re-canceling) beach vacations. So what better time to share some of my […]

by Angela on December 4, 2017

Thankful for November

by Angela on November 14, 2017

I love reading everyone’s daily status updates on things they are thankful for during the month of November. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  The thing I am most thankful for once November comes around is that October is over! I know, I know, it doesn’t make any sense. I […]

Finding Mindfulness

by Deena on November 7, 2017

At a time when we are always connected and generally distracted, is it any surprise that we are struggling to connect with the things we really value? Our sense of wonder, our ability to create, our true connections to one another. How does one go about being present and mindful? What does being mindful even […]

What’s in your pill box?

by Angela on July 6, 2016

Who takes vitamins every day?  I go through phases.  For about 10 years, I took a daily birth control pill.  That was easy.  It was small and I could take it without water. It kept my periods predictable and, well, kept me from getting pregnant!  For 6 years I took a daily breast cancer preventative […]

Getting Healthy…Again

by Angela on July 4, 2016

I’m making a commitment to document again. I don’t say “write” because I’m not a writer. But I haven’t documented in a while because I keep discouraging myself. So this documentation is for me. It’s my motivator to get healthy. I stopped posting things on this blog because it made me feel insufficient and incompetent. […]

by Deena on November 26, 2014

So I’ve finished week 1 of Beachbody’s 21 day fix and I must say I really love this program.  I love the variety of the exercise program and the simple eating plan.   I’ve been doing the program with my Beachbody coach (who also happens to be a friend) Elaine and a group of 7 […]

The Everyday Road to a 10-Miler – Week 2

by Angela on November 23, 2014

Week 2 of my 10-Miler training was GREAT. It went something like this: Monday: Tuesday: Wednesday: Thursday: Friday:   No, your eyes did not deceive you. I actually did nothing last week. I take that back, I did go to my dance class on Monday, but that works more of my brain than my body. […]
