Minnesota State Fair — fun sans the stick

Yes you can have a healthy & fun State Fair experience without the stick! #healthygirlsdothefair

Most of you have probably had mornings, days or workouts like that. It happens. Read more

New life…at Como and everywhere

My walk around Como Lake this early morning was simply spectacular and I couldn’t wait to get home and blog about it. First of all, the morning couldn’t have been more glorious – high 60’s or 70 degrees and sunny with a light breeze and a calm and quiet lake. Gosh I LOVE this place! Read more

Getting Reaquainted with Como Lake

I am fortunate to live within walking distance of Como Lake — a Saint Paul institution for more than 100 years. Yet, I can count on one hand the number of times I have regularly walked around the lake for exercise or enjoyment. Read more
