Eliminate, Donate, Participate Recycling has become a part of our daily routine. Glass, plastic, aluminum – these are all commonly recycled materials, but have you thought about fabric or, more specifically, clothing? Cleaning out my closet gives me the perfect opportunity to do just that. I pull pieces that just don’t work for me anymore.… Read More Eliminate, Donate, Participate
Well, today is the day! Last December, Brookside Dark Chocolate asked me to make a BALLSY New Year’s resolution for 2018. I said I’d model a bikini on my blog. What was I thinking?? In truth, I wanted to prove to myself I could do something I set my mind to. I also had something to… Read More Happy Birthday to Me – My Bikini Post!
Not many of us can say we have more free time than we did a year ago. For all the new time-saving gadgets and techniques out there, we seem to be busier than ever. Finding ways to balance all the demands on our time is a real challenge. Priorities are shifted. Things get sacrificed. Our… Read More The “I Don’t Have Time to Workout” Workout, Part One
Memorial Day I’m taking a moment today to recognize those who have served our country and paid the heaviest price. Our fallen service men and women and their families have made a sacrifice few of us can really fathom. From those whose lives laid the foundation of our great nation to Master Sgt. Jonathan J… Read More Memorial Day 2018
This was fun. I decided to try something completely different by choosing some unusual camera angles. Sometimes you’ve got to mix things up to get a different perspective. It’s so easy to get into a rut, never varying in our daily routines. It’s also much too easy to dig in with our opinions and ideas… Read More A Different Perspective

All this to prove a very important point. May is Melanoma Awareness Month. Although breast cancer is still deadlier… Read More Your Dermatology Visit – So Important for Your Health
Regarding my journey to bikini readiness: I haven’t checked in for a while. The reason? I’m not getting there. At all. I’ve had a hard time staying motivated. I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles with a busy schedule, a lack of willpower and sometimes, just plain laziness. Sometimes I’m tired and I… Read More How to Re-focus and Stay Motivated!
What does it mean to be Fierce in Midlife? Midlife has its opportunities and challenges. We look at things differently, and we react to them differently. I’d call it a Midlife Paradigm Shift. For better or for worse, things aren’t the way they were for us in our 20, 30s or 40s. We’re ignored by… Read More Midlife Paradigm Shift
I’m having a little attitude lately. But in a good way. We’re getting ready for Forever Fierce Day this Monday and it’s got me thinking about what it’s like to be Fierce at Midlife. I’m excited to share with you some friends and family members, woman I would consider Fierce, sharing what that word and… Read More I’ve Got a New Attitude!
I had planned to post this last Wednesday, but somehow messed up the scheduling. I was already behind – I want to post at least three times a week, but that doesn’t always happen. I want to be consistent but I’m learning not to beat myself up too badly when I’m not. Life gets busy… Read More My Bikini Challenge – The Current Workouts
