Are You Suffering from Spiritual Inertia? By Janice Taylor NABBW’s Expert on Weight Loss and Hypnotism Have you ever wondered how it is that after decades of time-saving inventions and new technologies that “free time” has almost disappeared from our culture? “Lost time is never found again.” — Benjamin Franklin Are we time-poor, insolvent, bankrupt?

May 10th, 2011

Hold on! Your Core is More Than You Think By Lisa Byrne, B.S Exercise Sciences  |  Certified Pilates Instructor NABBW’s Boomer Women\’s Fitness Expert It’s a hard to teach someone how to hold onto themselves.

Before you move next time try this: Stop, look, and listen to your body, your mind, and your task. Do you brace yourself first? Yes, I\’m talking even if it is taking your cereal bowl to the kitchen table. Think... Read More

April 6th, 2011

The Value of Mistakes and Imperfections By Janice Taylor NABBW’s Expert on Weight Loss and Hypnotism In emails from Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club) and various coaching conversations that I\’ve had with a number of my one-on-one coaching clients, the concepts of “normal” and “perfect” have repeatedly surfaced.

I\’m curious to know what you think being “normal” (whatever that is) and “perfect”... Read More

February 11th, 2011

Fix These 5 for Outstanding Posture By Lisa Byrne, B.S Exercise Sciences | Certified Pilates Instructor NABBW’s Boomer Women\’s Fitness Expert Last week I joined my friend and hair stylist for a bite to eat at the local pub.  She immediately noticed the bartender’s outdated hairstyle and said “Wow, I wonder who cuts her hair? She has such a beautiful face and wonderful jaw line, but the cut is not serving her all”. Donna was being completely open and honest in that inquiry.  By no means was it a slam. She thought by engaging in a conversation with the bartender she’d be... Read More

Even small amounts of light and noise can wake us up and stimulate our nervous system making it difficult to fall back to sleep.  All of these things can leave us feeling... Read More
