The Dr Oz Show!


Today my mom and I met my brother Michael (living in Philadelphia) in NYC to see the Doctor Oz Show! It was great! What an experience! Tuesdays when he was on Oprah were my favorite episodes! Doctor Oz and I share common ideas about what is most important and effective in leading a healthy lifestyle! It was great to see him in person -- though I didn't get to meet him, he seemed to be just as friendly and personable as he seems on TV! He is such a blessing! It's so cool to have someone so famous and well-liked spreading the word about, in the words of the Oprah Show, "living our best lives"! You can check to see what channel and time Doctor Oz is playing in your area! I was so excited for the show to begin this fall, and now that it's begun I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have fun becoming healthier!

What an inspiration!

Today, my friend Jenny, her kids and mine, all got to meet Bill Rodgers, multiple winner of many marathons, including winning the Boston and NY Marathons four times each between 1975 and 1980, twice breaking the American record with 2:09:55 and then 2:09:27! Bart Yasso is another great runner, and also the world's leader advocate of the sport of running, who has been working for Runner's World for decades, wrote My Life on the Run which has lots of terrific stories of his incredible running experiences! Bill and Bart were both so friendly and inspiring! They helped me to have a great race at the Cleveland Half Marathon!

Technology Gratitude!

I just have to say I am totally in awe of all of the wonderful information that is available to each and every one of us today via the world wide web! It is totally amazing! Choose a topic of interest, a fleeting question in your mind, and poof, in a moment you can watch or read information straight from the world-leading researcher in on that topic! Have a favorite author? Hear him speak on www.youtube.com or www.ted.com Then purchase that book from www.amazon.com to be at your door in the next day or so, or request it from your library website and pick it up in a few days, or purchase an online copy and have it there on your screen within minutes! Have a taste for chocolate and peppermint? Have 200 recipes at your fingertips in a flash! All recipes and 101 Cookbooks are great sites for recipes.

TED, by the way is an amazing source that presents new presentations each day from leading professionals in a variety of topics, from art to prosthetics. It's slogan is "ideas worth spreading", and it's potential is astounding!

Reliable sources are extremely abundant!, but make sure you are using websites that are not just trying to sell something. Examples of safe sites are those from the government, colleges and universities, non-profit organizations, and your local library.

Want to be HAPPIER?!

There is a fantastic book written by Tal Ben-Shahar called Happier. It is based upon his college course that is the most popular one ever at Harvard! A few years ago it began with a small class of five or so students, and now each semester there is a packed auditorium of more than 800 students! The book and the course are about how you can make yourself happier TODAY. There are step-by-step easy steps to bringing happiness into your life right away and forever! Here is a cool video about his course, and therefore his book, which I highly recommend. Also, if you are very interested, there is an online course by him that you may take this summer (there is a tuition fee, along with presumably college credit). Take a look and enjoy!

Tasty snack of Greek yogurt!




The Ultrasimple Diet is one that I am testing out, along with my husband, because it looks so great! That's a post for another day. My husband may not agree about how wonderful the diet is, as it's strict to say the least. There is a preparation week (we're doing that now) and it eliminates various substances, such as sugar and high fructose corn syrup. So yogurt, is pretty much out of the question. But wait! Greek versions have very few ingredients! Look for non-dairy Greek yogurt and give this combo a try!

So here is the quick recipe:

Non-dairy yogurt, cup (or try with oatmeal or quinoa!)
Strawberries, handful, sliced
Walnuts, handful
Banana, sliced
Sprinkle of allspice

Mix everything up and enjoy a delightful treat!
