Last weekend’s BAM – Bloggers at Midlife conference – was the first time I’ve been around a large group of people my same age since my 10-year high school reunion in the 80s. I enjoy being with people of all ages, yet there is something to be said for spending time with people who have similar concerns, interests, cultural references, histories, fears and joys.
Why keep your head above your heart during cardio activity? What goes down when your heart rate goes up? Not you, we hope. Oh, and no starting a war for oxygen between your working muscles and brain. Assuming the brain is working….

Do you find the following workout saying a turn on or turn off: “Go Hard or Go Home!”? What do you think of the perennial classic “No Pain, No Gain”? Motivating or Scary? What workout words work for you?
I gained 10 pounds in 10 days. I do not have a tumor. Now I have to lose 10 pounds. I am a fitness pro who moves a lot and eats not a lot. I should not be gaining weight. But I am. Help encourage me, as it’s frustrating. Stupid menopause years.

As a new year begins, many of us resolve to put our health first. Good health includes your mood, skin, ability to laugh, and movement, of course!
