This week is the 1 year anniversary of my Divorce, but my friend celebrity fitness trainer Kathy Kaehler gave me an early anniversary gift a couple of weeks ago. She gave me the gift of a Reset from Usana. She didn’t just give me the gift of the week long health improvement system, she gave me the gift of her time and participation. [Read more…]

With Mother’s Day on the horizon gifts are on my mind, and hopefully on the minds if my kids, (if they know what’s good for them.) But sometimes to get the best gift you have to give it to yourself. That’s why I have been researching the cheapest wireless plans for the last several weeks. However, the more I’ve learned the more frustrated I’ve become. I feel like a slave to my wireless plans, tethered to it not by choice, but by necessity.

I was impressed not just with the efficiency of the system, but with the variety and high quality of their produce.

I just didn’t cross that starter line and give it a try, for no other reason than I just didn’t feel like trying something new. That happens to a lot of us. To deal with the hustle and bustle of our lives we establish a routine. And even though something new looks potentially like a great addition we aren’t willing to slow down enough to take a risk on change. That is until life takes a serious left turn, throws us off course, and strands us in need. That’s exactly what happened to me this past holiday month. [Read more…]
