    Training, teaching and stretching clients in Thailand and the Hamptons this year, it dawned on me that it was July 1996 – 20 years ago – when I completed my first Group Exercise and Personal Training certifications with American Council on Exercise (ACE). I was living in Bermuda at the time, working as a Corporate Administrator at Conyers, Dill & Pearman, and in the evenings and weekends, started fitness coaching and teaching aerobics and water fitness thanks to inspiration from my dear friend Michelle. I […]

SACHA INCHI Sacha Inchi is also known as the Inca peanut and is the seed of a plant that grows in the highlands of Peru. Despite being a fairly recent discovery in the health community in North America, sacha inchi has been cultivated and used as a food source for 3,000 years in the […]

    Making A Call On the Go:  Healthy Or Hurry? Recently, my 19-month old toddler, Noah and I have been at train stations – four times! – while hubby was away on a 10-day work trip. One morning at the station, en route to visit my sister, I rushed to pack a bag with everything he/we needed though I hadn’t the time to feed myself before leaving. So there I was at the station with the scent of cinnamon buns being baked, Subway, McD’s, a patisserie […]

    Bins_With_Labels

    GG bought these floor storage bins which can also be used as wall storage. Apparently the bins come in white or black colors. We were  stuffing random toys and baby/toddler items in the sliding bins so I decided this morning to categorize each bin for at-a-glance ease (will help the grandparents and auntie when babysitting too!). Labels for Bins I printed out the general contents of each bin onto white paper, then used Noah’s lately-favorite “Thomas & Friend” wrapping paper that we weren’t using, as […]
