Hugh Jackman is my hero. He's a dad in midlife--and he's in serious shape!

 I am active and eat healthy--but I needed just an extra nudge to get serious about fitness. I got a health coach named Pam and have worked hard to get into shape. I have more energy for Taekwondo, and for my whole life. Even my writing benefits when I feel great!

I've had plenty of excuses to be out of shape. But my journey has been a long one. Starting back ten years ago when I first read The Sugar Blues and gave up refined sugar. Over time I educated myself more on the hazards of junk food and the benefits of healthy, whole foods and vitamins. And then I had to do something that made activity a part of my daily life so I opted for Taekwondo. Not only has it provided quality time with my son, but it has been very enjoyable! I have found my "thing" that makes exercising a pleasure!

Who and what inspires you?

This was our fifth summer vacationing at the Mayacama. Feel free to use the arrows to skip through the massive amounts of pictures. (Warning...gratuitous picture taking alert.)    (= Basically we swam, ate, and relaxed there. I came home feeling great-- and with a tan. Check.

Miss my blogger friends. This summer has been so busy and crazy that I have not been on here much. Things are going well. My agent is still out there pushing my book-- and several editors have it in their clutches. Meanwhile I have edits to do on my new books!

Hope you are all having a great summer!
