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...

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 ...

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...

Thank you for your patience while I was away. Although I wanted to write a blog post for you last week, it was as if God wanted me to bask in Him and His goodness at the Christian writer’s retreat. So, I left it alone. Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in a routine and implied promises and lose focus. G...

I got a call after I arrived home from a long, grueling work day at the gym: "I need to talk to you about...." So I finished my conversation with that manager, ate dinner and decided to check email afterward. In my inbox were emails from my boss about work-related topics. My thought was something like this: "Why can't work stay at wo...

I recently posted a meme that said, “If you’ve become obsessed about weighing yourself often to see if you’ve lost weight, then put the scale away.” That meme seemed to put some of my friends and followers off. Please, let me clarify that statement. I was anorexic in my last year of high school and beginning of college. In my pre-...

I hear it over and over, “We are too busy to do what we need to do for ourselves! Isn’t that selfish anyway?” What a common mantra people of different walks of life, faiths, and family status! You know what is so sad? Christians rarely see it differently! I recently addressed Christian health, fitness and wellness in my blog po...

Almost every woman wants other people to think she is beautiful, especially her boyfriend or husband. The truth is not every one of us is beautiful in appearance to everyone around us. I never really felt beautiful. I’m not to the majority of the world, to be honest. Both of my husbands believed otherwise. Each one felt that ...

I forgot something valuable in my last post: the purpose of taking care of your health. This week’s post ties into that issue.


Over the years of working with clients with weight loss and health improvement goals, I’ve noticed a lot of people with poor self-images. The internal messages running in...

Whenever we travel, God always points out situations or experiences that fit the blog post I've planned or at least, this platform. We flew to Florida for an airshow with free time worked into our plans. Little did we know, we escaped Michigan's subzero temperatures and lots of snow. When we left the airport, we were greeted w...
