It’s Just Like Sugar!

I have found the BEST new product, and I have gotten all my personal training clients hooked on it. It’s JUST LIKE SUGAR!

I do not eat sugar and have not for many, many years. As a personal trainer and Pro Natural Figure Competitor, I am well aware of the deleterious effects of sugar on the body, including effects that can be seen (high body fat levels), those that you can feel (decreased energy and stamina, blood sugar fluctuations), and those that you cannot (a compromised immune system and the many diseases that sugar promotes.)

I had resigned myself to a life whereby nothing sweet would ever cross my lips. I did not want to poison my body with artificial sweeteners, nor could I tolerate alternative sweeteners, as they all messed up my blood sugar mechanism, just as sugar did.

TAG, You’re It!

Recently, more than a few people have emailed me asking who, pray tell, designed my web site??!!

Instead of answering the same question again and again, I have decided to spill the beans right here in my blog!

If you are looking for a full-service web company and want to work with people that are highly professional, exceptionally creative, unusually honest, and genuinely caring, your search is over! They can take care of all your needs: designing, hosting, programming, social media, and e-commerce!

New Year, New Beginnings

I am sitting here with writer’s block trying to come up with something interesting to say…nope, no sudden inspiration.

I am tired as a dog, and all around me I see my friends working hard and feeling the pinch of this economy.  I think at this point, we are all in the same boat.

My life since the launch of this site in August 2008 has been interesting, to say the least.  Right after the launch, I left for a ten-day trip to visit my family in Florida knowing that I would come back to a busy, exciting fall in New York City…little did I know what I was in for!

Welcome to My Blog!

I am so pleased to be writing this, the first entry in my blog. It signifies the launch of my new web site, and this project has been long in coming!!

Like most people, I am overloaded, under-rested, stretched to the max, and flying by the seat of my pants. As someone that preaches balance to my clients all day long, I often need to remind myself that I need to practice what I preach, or I won’t be taken seriously. Attaining a state of balance in my own life has been supremely challenging lately.

My dear Mom always said, “When it rains, it pours.” Like most old sayings that stick around, this one seems to be true.
