I’m not a fitness expert. I’m pretty much not an expert at anything other than just being me. The advice offered and shared is based on my experience and what I’ve distilled from years of reading and listening to the advice of others. It’s really about inspiring, motivating and providing a forum where people can feel like they’re not alone as they struggle to get in shape, get healthy and live a better a life. Always be sure you are in good health before taking on physical activity, never over do it, and always be kind to yourself.

I like to use expletives as adverbs and adjectives. I don’t over do it, but I’ll throw it in there now and then so you should expect it and if you have a problem with it, I really don’t want to know. It just means that perhaps this isn’t the blog for you.

I’m not crafty, I’m not neat and organized (a little, but not in a way that will make you feel bad about yourself and then want to throw up and never visit the site again). I’m average at everything, there’s really nothing special about me. I’m sarcastic, have a warped sense of humor, and I love Amy Schumer, so if she rubs you the wrong way, you might not like this blog. I’m not religious or fanatical about anything. Not even running. I run because it’s really the only sport I’m decent at. It’s really hard to fuck up. I have a lot of extra energy and I get anxious so if I don’t run I drive my husband crazy by re-arranging furniture or going shopping and trying on a million different items and deciding each one looks like hell on me.

I’m going to be 50 in a few years, so every time it gets warm in the house I panic thinking I’m having my first hot flash. I vacillate between deciding to grow my gray hair out, dying it dark and straightening it like I’m La Femme Nakita (and if you get that reference you went to college in the 90’s like I did) or maybe, just maybe, trying out blonde, b/c if I’m going to see what it’s like to be a blonde, I’d better do it now b/c blonde or not, when you’re 50, you’re 50.

So basically this disclaimer is letting you know I’m not an expert, I’m moderately sane, and beware of bad language peppered in my blogs.
