Fall Brings Us Football, Foliage and Fabulosity! As I write you from here in the heart of the Midwest, the Fall football season is in full swing and the foliage, which I’d been worried about due to the summer drought, is just starting to fade. But it was absolutely brilliant here while it lasted. Hope your part of the country has also enjoyed some Fall beauty and harvest bounty. As for the fabulosity, we’ve got so much of that to share with you this issue, we’re a bit late with publishing – we just kept pushing back the date in order to incorporate “one more thing.”... (Read More ...)

The Summer Reading Issue I don’t know about you, but no matter what the weather, I love to spend my free time reading and writing. When I was a kid, my mother would spend a good part of the summer trying to pry me away from my books, urging me to “go outside and play.” And play we did: My friends and I played tennis, softball, and swam. We rode our bicycles, and just “hung out.” And of course, I went to camp – my favorite camp years were the two where I went to “horse camp,” where we got to spend a good part of each day learning how to care for... (Read More ...)

2012’s In High Gear, Are You? We’re well into 2012. It’s already February. Which means that a few resolutions have been broken, the Super Bowl is a memory, and the star-studded new song and dance show Smash, NBC’s answer to the Fox Network’s megahit Glee, has finally aired its first episode, after having been promoted for months…. I’m not a resolution maker, but I do try to set goals at the beginning of each year. Some of them are small, like clear the paper piles off my desk so that I have a nice clean space to work in. For that one, I was inspired by the quote... (Read More ...)

Hot, Hot Hot! It’s Late Summer! Welcome to another information-packed issue of Boomer Women’s World. It’s suddenly August and the weather continues to be hot and stormy here in the Midwest. Earlier this week, our little corner of the world experienced an intense rain. Water, water everywhere.We had somewhere between twelve and fifteen inches of rain fall in twelve hours. Much of it coming down in the first three hours. Thankfully my basement is only a little damp, and no harm came to us physically. Not everyone was so lucky. Many roads and homes were destroyed by this storm, and... (Read More ...)

Is It Time To Move On? By Lisa Byrne Personal training sessions can be a considerable amount of money to invest for the sake of achieving a goal that you have deemed you cannot do alone. The relationship that you have with your personal trainer is highly dependent upon your degree of satisfaction and their degree of professionalism. Hiring a trainer may come through word of mouth, or by your observation of what’s around you or perhaps a good ad in the paper caught your eye. However it is that you ended up working with a trainer you want to be aware of some flags that may signal stepping... (Read More ...)

The fitness profession regards September as one of the three months that stand out for people to re-commit to exercise, get in shape and begin a new program (January and May are the others). September is one of the best months to refocus and reinvent some aspect of yourself. Why? For a few reasons. Whether or not you have children tapping into the back to school tide and energy are hard to miss. With the energy shift of entering a new grade kids surely have butterflies, but the eagerness of a new beginning fills the air. Greeting the new grade they can refocus their intentions with a whole new... (Read More ...)
