Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

Both my husband Bob and I are cancer survivors. Eating right, exercising and maintaining our weight are important to preventing reoccurrence.

Who are your “Healthy Living” role models and why?

Kathy Smith and my dear friend Shelley Tyler inspire me.  At 60+, Kathy Smith looks amazing, never tires of exercising and her workout videos rock. Likewise, everyone has trouble believing Shelley’s a grandmother (of course, she is only 54). Shelley exercises almost every day and when she’s not working out, she’s planning delicious, nutritious meals to help her family stay fit.

What is your go-to healthy meal when you are short on time?

I love a simple salad made by tossing strawberries and blueberries with a banana. There’s no cooking involved.

Are there any foods that you consider to be off-limits completely?

I try to avoid anything that’s sure to go straight to my waistline like doughnuts.  I haven’t had one in about 30 years.

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness?

If you’re like me and sit at a desk all day, it’s important to make yourself take five-minute fitness breaks.  Walk down the hall or go outside. Bend over and touch your toes; then reach for the sky and give your waist a twist.  Besides burning calories, breaking for fitness can be a real spirit lifter.
