Wellness Challenge + Countdown

Wellness Challenge + Countdown

I am counting down the days to my 52nd Birthday with a Wellness Challenge. Every day, I am exercising, staying active and sharing it all with you. Everything from quick runs near the house, to answering emails on the elliptical and even treating myself to a SoulCycle class -  I am making it happen! I LOVE hearing what you are all doing on social media as well! It really helps me stay motivated and focused.


Week One of my Wellness Challenge is in the books and I am feeling so much stronger each day. Last week, I shared my active-wear essentials and this week, I am sharing what keeps me going through my workouts!


Pre-workout I have a snack that is high in protein. Two of my favorite, and easiest, snacks are a small handful of almonds or some 0% Greek Yogurt. Thrive Market has the highest quality organic, non-GMO products and offers wholesale prices at 25-50% off retail. With fast and free delivery, it saves time and money for my family and gives free memberships to low-income American families.

Music is the other thing that keeps me going during my workouts. It allows me to focus and have even more fun.


My Beats by Dr. Dre - Powerbeats³ Wireless earbuds have the best sound and always stay in my ears, even when I am running or doing jumps. They are on sale right now for $99.00 from Best Buy. Grab them!

I also love the SPIbelt Running Belt. I keeps me hands free when I am exercising but allows me to have important things with me while I’m on the move - like my keys and phone.


And last, my playlist! My playlist changes based on what kind of exercise I am doing but typically I love a mix of old, new and various genres to keep things fresh and to keep me moving!  



  1. Chaka Khan - Ain’t Nobody 

  2. Rihanna - Work (feat. Drake) 

  3. Stevie Nicks - Edge of Seventeen  

  4. Post Malone - rockstar (feat. 21 Savage) 

  5. Kendrick Lamar - Humble

  6. Depeche Mode - Blasphemous Rumors 

  7. Tears For Fears - Sowing the Seeds of Love 

  8. Bob Marley & The Wailers - Three Little Birds

My Life is My Pride!
My Life is My Pride!

June is here and I am excited to celebrate my love, my life, everyone in the LGBTQ community and the milestones of change we celebrate during Pride Month. Over the years, I have seen the people in my life and across the globe become more inclusive and tolerant. No matter who you love, how you look or what you believe - we should all be able to live in a world full of love and without judgement or shame.
Why I LOVE Farmers Markets!
Why I LOVE Farmers Markets!

Spring is here all across the country and that means Farmers Markets will be popping up in everyone’s city and town. I am fortunate to live in California where farmers markets are accessible year-round but I never take for granted our access to fresh, a variety of in-season and local produce. Not only does it taste better when cooking and eating, it also has the fullest nutritional value. Did you also know you’re contributing to your local economy when you purchase from your local farmers markets? Farmers Markets return more than three times as much of their sales to the local economy compared to chain stores.
