I love fashion on some level. Feeling good and therefore looking good is important. I really love clothes that are comfortable, #1 and stylish #2! I always enjoy seeing what Ellen Degeneres is wearing. She certainly looks put together and comfortable.
I feel good in my clothes because I am in shape. I have a strong core and my clothes fit. Fitness is my fashion statement.
Thank goodness because here is my closet. Not much in there. It is amazing that I look as put together as I do:)
Socks can make the outfit. I love cool socks. You can have a pair of jeans or cozy black wool pants on with fun socks and you have an outfit!
Now, this is FASHION!
One last tip. I use my BOOM products by Cindy Joseph everyday. They make me feel good and put together. Here is my make up demo. One of my most popular videos. Does my audience care more about makeup than burpees? Maybe, it is easier.
I would love to hear from you. What is your go to outfit… the one that makes you feel fit and fabulous?
Have you read Laurel’s Kitchen By Laurel Robertson, Carol Flinders and Brownwen Godfrey? It was first printed in 1976. My copy is yellow with age. When I was first married, I used this cookbook a lot. They talk about being the Keeper of the Keys. “Traditionally the world over, the women in the house has been known as the keeper of the keys. To hold the keys to the household, to the storerooms, attics, chests and cupboards, was a position of great responsibility and therefore great honor.” I loved the book at the time. I would bake round loaves of bread in coffee cans, sprout my own beans, and make yogurt from scratch. I was in charge of cooking and feeding the family. I still am. I no longer bake bread or sprout beans or make yogurt from scratch.
Now, I make grain free muffins in a minute. This is great for breakfast. Today, I had it after my workout with a delicious cup of organic french pressed coffee.
Delicious Post workout snack.

Easy peasy.The basic recipe is from Jorge Cruise. Of course, I add my own pet touches, chopped walnuts, raisins, shredded coconut. Get creative! Today I added fresh blueberries from my food co op.
Organic Blueberry Muffin
This is a wonderful treat for your kids. Thomas and I made them when he got home from camp the other day. Easy for him to make as well.
Thomas loves them too. He added grass fed butter to his muffin!
Try it out and let me know what your pet touches are! I love to hear from you.
Do you reflect at the end of the year? Do you take time to think about what you accomplished in the past year? Do you set intentions for the New Year? I do kinda sort of…I hang out with people who take all of this very seriously. My intention is to take time to meditate and journal. I have bought so many journals and start but I don’t follow through.
I am part of a very special group and we talked quickly about what our “word” might be for 2015. I am thinking abundance, prosperity.Who doesn’t want that? What I really want is to be inspired and creative and inspire others to do the same. How do I make that happen? Meditating and journaling, being grateful for all the good that comes my way and taking some downtime to see what comes up. The other key component for me to remember and embrace is that everything is in divine order. I am working on giving up the chaos, control and letting God take the lead. It feels so much better when I remember that!
Christmas morning, I opened a very special present from a good friend. “A GOD BOX” On the box, it says Open for new ideas, Trust God, Life is unfolding in perfect order. WOW, it made me cry and gave me goose bumps all at the same time.
I know great things will be coming in the New Year for me and for you.
Do you set intentions for the New Year? Anything you would like to share? I would love to hear from you.
I have been working on creating a new program for the fall and I am excited about it. It will be a new beginning! September is a good time for a new program, back to school time, turning 60 (WOW) etc. I have been looking at my fitness and well being in a different way the past 6 months.
Here are some of the ideas and thoughts that I have been working with. Creativity and ideas have been flowing. I feel like I am on the right path and hope to inspire you as well!
Rid of aches and pains or at least reduced.
Minimum amount of exercise that you need to stay in shape.
Can’t exercise your way out of a BAD DIET!
A lovely cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening…just because:)

I love creative people. They are inspiring to me. I look up creative people on you tube and Ted talk. I am interested in what they have to say. I have tried different things in my life. I took a pottery class and and made a few beautiful heavy lopsided bowls. A few fortunate love ones got them as a Christmas gift. One year, everyone received a handmade scarf or cap for Christmas. Stunning. I had my own business Khaki & Moss where I made cute bags and also bought other people’s products and put my label on it. It was creative but not exactly 100% my own artwork.
I have friends like Wendy Cettina who create their own beautiful clothing. Alyssa Truckenbrod can make a bar of soap. Elizabeth (I call her Beth) Harbaugh can walk into a room, rearrange, simplify and make it a work of art. Veronique of OceanRock Design can create a beautiful bag out of vintage World War 2 material.
All very inspiring, I am not sure where this is going but I know creativity is linked to my happiness. I have decided that I can clean, shine my kitchen sink and put out a bar of handmade soap right next to a lopsided bowl. That is CREATIVITY for me. Simple, Easy and Beautiful!
