Unlike earlier posts where I was writing from the vantage point of being healthy and strong, today I am starting at square one.
Something I've always known, but what…Continue

I love the summertime in Steamboat. The flowers bloom, the grass is vibrant green and all my furry forest friends come out to play. There are lots of wild animals that call Steamboat their backyard, too, and even though they look cuddly and fun, I always have to remind myself to keep my distance.
The safest way to view wildlife in the Yampa Valley is from a distance. If you see an animal, it’s fine to take a picture — just use the zoom feature on your camera instead of getting close.…Continue

The white blanket of winter is gone and yet some of us might still be hanging on to our proverbial winter layer. Yes, somehow the pounds can add up during those cold winter months when your body is fighting the elements to stay warm. (At least that's my excuse.) Suddenly summer is here and you are wanting to shed those unwanted "warm" layers of extra weight. Don't fret! Changes should be small and incremental but ultimately will have a significant effect. BABY STEPS.
