My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Want to join me? I need your help........please?

This is my new workout video!

This is what a St. Louis paper said about it:

‘Inten•Sati: Great Body, Great Life’
By Amy Bertrand
Named best instructor by New York Magazine and Allure magazine, Patricia Moreno brings an energy to her workout videos like none you've seen. She goes beyond encouraging, offering powerful mantras to be said to each move she offers. For instance, while doing punching moves, you say "I, am, strong," (one word to each punch). The idea is that by saying it, you believe it and that by saying it, you don't let your mind wander. When the mind doesn't wander, you are unlikely to talk yourself out of completing the workout. She says she wants to "harness the power of the mind to achieve the potential of the body ... so we can live a life we love in a body we love." This video is broken down into four segments: warm-up (10 minutes), cardio upper-body (15 minutes), cardio lower-body (25 minutes) and yoga stretch (15 minutes).

Her moves are influenced by yoga, dance and martial arts, and they will definitely get your heart pumping and your muscles firing, with a little balance challenge thrown in. But it's the powerful spoken meditations that will change the way you work out. It may feel a little strange at first, saying things such as "The love in me bows to you," but even the skeptical may start repeating along with Moreno after a while. She's that dynamic.

Check out her website HERE

I, like all of us, need to work out to:

be healthy

be around for our families

feel good

be able to be active

lower our cholesterol

strengthen our hearts

not say no to activities

to feel good about ourselves

to like what we see in the mirror

So I am proposing we start working out together. Well you know what I mean, sort of. I am trying to figure out how we could start working out, eating right and supporting each other and keeping each other on track.

I am open to suggestions..............

Check out the video and let me know if you think you might like it.

Hey Heidi,
I'm slowly coming back from the dead. I so appreciate your comment love and concern while I've been a little out of it. I had a lot going on and still need to work through it.
This workout video looks pretty cool. I've always wanted to somewhat try Yoga but not in public. If you know what I mean. I think I could do this workout couldn't hurt to try!!!! :-)

I signed up at, its free and part of the site has a thing called the daily plate where you can track your calorie intake and all your exercising. This is week 2 of me going to the gym at work everyday and I am feeling awesome. This site has helped me be more aware of what I eat and how much exercise that i get.

confession: I have never been one to take care of my body! Okay don't judge me, please. But I was thinking about joining curves uh-hum, after Christmas. A gift to myself kind of. What if we all supported each other with a certain day and a button like toast to Tuesday, where we give our updates and then all offer encouragement in the comments? We could call it Workout Wednesday's or something?

And YOU create the cutest buttons in the world, so you could do it and be our leader!
