Muscle Mass and Aging

Colleen Juarez November 11, 2019 Exercise, Food & Nutrition, Health, Mind & Body, outdoors

As I get older I’ve noticed that my muscles are less taut than they used to be. I exercise everyday but I don’t get the same results I used to. Even though I know that muscle mass(lean muscle)changes beginning at the age of 40 for women I truly believed that I was doing a good […]

Healthy for Life….Ramona’s Story

Colleen Juarez August 18, 2019 Exercise, Food & Nutrition, Health, Mind & Body, outdoors

I believe being healthy doesn’t mean what size you are, the way you look or even something you do for others. I believe its how we feel about ourselves a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. When you feel good about yourself and who you are, you carry yourself with a sense of […]

Our Bodies Were Made to MOVE

Colleen Juarez July 15, 2019 Exercise, Health, Mind & Body, outdoors

I recently returned from my annual backpacking trip. The majestic beauty of the pine forest,  flowing rivers and streams always replenishes my soul and rejuvenates my spirit. I love backpacking, but after 4 days of carrying a 25 pound pack along steep cliffs and rushing waterways my body starts to complain. I feel energized after […]

Benefits of Yin Yoga

Colleen Juarez May 23, 2018 Exercise, Health, Mind & Body, outdoors

Last weekend I had the incredible opportunity to attend a yoga festival…of classes and music, and sweet souls. I nourished my body, my mind and my heart. I walked in the dusty, windy desert grounds, I danced to the music around me, I moved to the words of instruction. Above all, I was reminded of […]

Healthy Habits to Live By

Colleen Juarez March 6, 2018 Exercise, Food & Nutrition, Health, Mind & Body, outdoors

There is always advice about how to live a healthy life yet, some habits you and I have might actually be working against us—things like late weekend night meals and ignoring that Broccolini recipe we keep saying we will try. They may seem harmless, but a few not so great habits over time really do […]

  The holidays are a special time when we celebrate with family and friends our appreciation for each other. With shared foods, gifts and celebrations we let those we love know how important they are in our lives. It is also a time we often reflect individually about what we are grateful for. I’d like […]
