Why Massage Therapists Make My Job Tough

January 14th, 2014

Why Massage Therapists Make My Job Tough By Lisa Byrne, B.S Exercise Sciences | Certified Pilates Instructor NABBW’s Boomer Women’s Fitness Expert Massage therapists make my job really challenging. Some. Not all. I’m using this particular profession as the first I pick on. Chiropractors and physical therapists are next. Every one of these professionals does something to the person they’re treating. You know what that is? It’s the doing. They do to the person. The person in front of them has a passive experience. It’s the being done to I’m referring to. Like my hair dresser. She does... Read More

Park Once, Gain Immeasurably By Lisa Byrne, B.S Exercise Sciences | Certified Pilates Instructor NABBW’s Boomer Women’s Fitness Expert  One Stop Shopping. Do you have in your nearby town one of these grand shopping centers/complexes that offer ‘one stop shopping’? It’s like a self-contained outlet that can provide everything you need. Seems obvious the idea is to provide an efficient convenience for you as a shopper. Of  course the idea is also to sell more products if it’s all in one place. Simple shopping centers of old with a supermarket, drugstore, dry cleaners, and a bank have... Read More

Food shopping: Everyone’s Delight

August 1st, 2013

Food shopping: Everyone’s Delight. By Lisa Byrne, B.S Exercise Sciences | Certified Pilates Instructor NABBW’s Boomer Women’s Fitness Expert I like to go food shopping between 5:30 – 6am on the weekdays.

But this past Sunday, I decided to swing by at about 1pm. It was crowded but Wegman’s had plenty of manpower to handle it. When done, I like to load ALL my bags on me so I can leave my cart at the entrance. With... Read More

So How’s That Working Out for You? Is there really anything new to say? Not really.... Read More

The Simpler Way

December 14th, 2010

The Simpler Way By Lisa Byrne NABBW’s Boomer Women\’s Fitness Expert Sometimes it feels so easy to NOT exercise, doesn’t it? There is some sort of weird relief in deciding to procrastinate your exercise intentions for another day.  I mean, what’s the big deal, you’re going to start- just not today. With no direct effects slapping you in the face, nobody breathing down your neck  the decision is easy, no fretting. Delay until tomorrow, again. Whew. HOWEVER, the beloved New Year is approaching. That’s when everyone resolves something that usually has some relationship to fitness.... Read More
