An Angel in My Shoes

An Angel in My Shoes

As promised last week, I’m releasing an excerpt from my yet to be published book, AND A CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM: FROM UNTHINKABLE TRAGEDY TO UNEXPECTED FAITH. It’s a spiritual memoir about my family learning to live again after loss thanks to Heavenly messages from my charismatic six year-old sister, Sommar (pronounced “summer”), who guided our way as we found the courage to live our authentic lives.

Just like her mama…and not at all

Today two of my daughters demonstrated how they can be just like me or not anything at all like me. One absolutely, positively, confidently crushed her audition for AMDA. I wasn’t in the room as she danced and was interviewed; … Continue reading →

2013 Weekly Challenge #37: The Power of the Push Up

2013 Weekly Challenge #37:  The Power of the Push Up

What do you do when your bootcamp coach says "time for pushups?" I'm willing to bet you groan, shoot a dirty look or, at a minimum roll your eyes. Admit it - you know its true!

Pushups aren't the easiest thing in the world to do. But they are worth every bit of effort you put into them. Pushups work SO many muscle groups. Primarily, they work your deltoids (shoulders), triceps (back of the upper arm) and pectorals (chest). As if that weren't great enough, they can also engage your rhomboids (shoulder blade area), Erector spinae(spine), Rotator cuff, Posterior Deltoids (shoulders), Serratus anterior (near your arm pits), Rectus abdominus (abs), Transverse Abdominus (abs), Gluteus maximus (glutes), and Quadriceps (quads).

That's a lot of bang for your exercise buck, so its no surprise they can be challenging!
