I've been sick all week after returning from visiting my daughter and her family in Colorado. The altitude difference, 432 feet above sea level in Michigan to over 4,000 feet above sea level in Northern Colorado, got me. It made me feel like I was doing mild endurance exercise while I was there. This ...

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...

Cooler Fall temperatures make us hungry for warm comfort foods. I've loved spaghetti squash for a long time, but recently rediscovered it's delicious swap for pasta. Spaghetti squash gets its name for the stringy texture of the flesh. Why bother spiralizing stuff when God set this up for us already? The stores around me had it on sale tempting me to buy one,...

My hubby and I took a great bike ride along the Saginaw Bay through Bay City. At first, we thought it was a new trail discovery, but it was actually the extension of one we tried out a couple of years ago. Most of the summer, we rode between 10-12 miles near our home to the nearby town. Neither one of us expected to cycle twice a...

I've heard parents and teachers exclaim, "School starts next week. Can you believe it?" Frantically they shop for kids' clothes and school supplies. All those forms will come home to be filled out and returned to teachers. Football practice and cheerleading tryouts place many parents' backsides in the seats of bleachers waiting… waiti...

It’s been interesting since I came back from the Christian writers conference and retreat now that I am trying to get caught up. Nothing came to mind for my blog post this week. Ugh! How can I have something for you if my mind goes blank? So, I decided to take a break this morning to do my PraiseMoves workout and devotions together...

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...

Kick Up the Flavor in Healthy Meals

The grandkids wrinkled up their noses while they picked at their food on one of their visits a couple of years ago. “Grandma, I don’t like this. Can we have mac and cheese?” What they meant to say was they didn’t like the healthy meal I cooked because they were used to hyper-flavored boxed fare. It is tough to...
