While a few have loved ones battling COVID-19 or succumbed to it. We have fared well here. My Boaz has been working from home. We still ...Read Full Post »

My hubby is a pilot, so we love to cruise the sky in our single-engine plane on gorgeous days. Since he is teaching me to fly, I had to learn to read the many gauges on the instrument panel. It is easy to stay on course when there is a gentle breeze, but some days I feel like a toy batted around the...Read Full Post »

Here I sit writing this blog post, with my Apple watch nagging me to stand. I record my physical activity, food intake, heart rate, and more. Unfortunately, it also has a Mindfulness section. I want to change this to prayer and bible study, but Apple doesn't let us swap out these features. How did we get to this point?

So, I’ve been sitting at the island in my kitchen, sipping coffee while setting up posts for social media. Flurries flit about in a hazy gloom outside. This time of year is always rough for me, even though my first husband died seven years ago. The scene outside just adds to grief’s effect. You would think grief gets better wit...Read Full Post »

I am currently in the Phoenix area, visiting family. We went exploring the White Tank Mountain Park and worked out at the Air Force base fitness center this week, thanks to a pass from my step-son. While here in Arizona, it occurred to me this topic might be of interest to you. So, on the plane and during grandbaby naps, I’ve pulled these tip...Read Full Post »

Recently, I felt pummeled by troubles ranging from a damaged computer to pressures of trying to finish our house and move while trying to start groups and classes, to one huge flare-up that landed me in bed for a few days. You likely noticed my posts were sporadic at the end of my visit with my daughter in Colorado until recently. It seemed like I was spi...Read Full Post »

Sitting hunched over a computer is the norm nowadays. Leaning toward a coworker over the table in a meeting to hear him while showing interest is also common. Pastors, teachers, and childcare workers are reaping the negative results of working in a leaning forward position day in and day out. The results of ...Read Full Post »

The past few days challenged me here at Be Totally Fit for Life! All was not well here. First, I noticed the hinge on my laptop caused a separation of the screen from the case, thereby cracking the bottom corner of the screen at the Windows logo. It finished fully cracking off the rest by the time I could take it to an approved repai...Read Full Post »
