Terilynn Gives up Lounging for Lunging and Loses Inches!

February 20, 2012

  I met Terilynn when I joined a bocce team in April 2010 soon after I moved to Napa. She was (and still is) fun and happy and loved to talk… to everyone!

Happy (belated) New Year! The holidays are over. We ate, we drank, we may have put on, hmm… 4 pounds? (I swear I didn’t peer over your shoulder when you were on the scale a couple of weeks ago). That is the average weight gain between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. “Yikes!” is right! So, […]

Benefits of (or lack thereof) an Exercise “Routine”

November 29, 2011

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Albert Einstein, (attributed) US (German-born) physicist (1879 – 1955) Over the past few weeks, I have had people contact me and ask, “Can you plan out a routine for me to follow.”  (Talk about creatures of habit…) And, my thought process is as follows: […]

Hiking and Trekking and Climbing…

August 17, 2011

I am from the East Coast. Raised in a town of 400 people. 1.5 hours to the nearest mall, 2 hours to the nearest (major) city, 1.5 hours to any (decent) ski mountain and 1.5 hours to the closest airport (Manchester wasn’t really happening back then). So, with that, the natural surroundings became my friend. […]
