“Everyone starts somewhere…”

I was about to break a streak of posting at least once every month, even though I have stuff to report! But then a great interview with one of my favorite upbeat "follows" on Twitter showed up in my in-box, and I decided to get it together and share a few things. 53-year old Jo... Continue Reading →

Keep the body in motion

First up, a few role models: I'm a few years (ok, 5 years) behind the times, but Bollywood actor and ageless eye candy Milind Soman treated himself to an Ironman* Triathlon for his 50th birthday in 2015 (*that's an event featuring a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.22 mile run).

That's encouraging!* I'm having to contemplate either proceeding with... Continue Reading →

Here comes the sun

Actually, I don't really believe spring is here, yet - where I live, we're guaranteed to get another blast of cold and snow in April - but in theory, we'll be seeing a bit more of the sun for the next few months. (The pretty picture above is not mine; it's a Creative Commons image... Continue Reading →

“Go ahead. Tie one on.”

Yes, I'm totally stealing that - no, I'm QUOTING that! - from a wellness poster/campaign that ran in the hallways and stairwells of a Kaiser Permanente office where I worked years ago. The poster charmed me so much I threatened to steal it (but didn't; I was completing a PhD in ethics at the time,... Continue Reading →
