Wow, these are some wild numbers when you’re just 39 years old! Yes, today, I celebrate 14 years of marriage. We were just teens when we feel in love– 19 years old to be exact… him 20. We smoked, we drank, we studied, we partied, we slept, we had a lot of sex, we were carefree.

Fast forward almost 20 years later… we don’t smoke, we drink occasionally (okay, him almost never), we still know how to party (when we’re able to stay up past 9pm), we are still having sex (albeit today’s numbers probably pale in comparison) and we ain’t as carefree as we used to be.

My Life: From Stripper To Therapist

Monday, August 4th, 2014

By Guest Blogger Maya Jordan

I was an ugly duckling as a kid.  Awkward, face full of braces and freckles, tall and skinny as a Kenyan track star in a culture that valued short and curvy.

I grew up in the Midwest, where, as Lebron James says, nothing is given, everything is earned.

He’s not kidding.

I had major dreams and ambitions and no means of achieving them beyond going to NYC and giving it my best shot.

Wordless Wednesday: Born In France

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Yes, I got this email from my husband over the weekend and it made me squirt coffee outta my nose. Maybe THIS explains the weight gain I wrote about on Monday. Oh boy, I think I have LESS eating and MORE putting out to do.

Yah.

Maybe I WAS born in France.

New Research: The Secrets To Living Longer

Monday, May 5th, 2014

So I’ve been thinking a lot about my health lately as I approach 40 and notice huge changes in my body. I was the girl you didn’t like– the girl who ate whatever she wanted and nothing would stick. Well, those days are now over and I have officially landed on planet earth to join the rest of the world. It’s been sobering, to say the least. Now, no matter WHAT I eat, healthy food included, it ALL sticks. But I’m not going down without a fight, yo.

Yesterday, I decided to spring for the $35 bucks for a cookbook I was too cheap to do before. I’ve been dying to get Miss “Conscious Uncoupling” herself, Gwyneth Paltrow‘s latest foodie book, It’s All Good. I’ve heard great things about it, and I am really trying to be more mindful than ever before when it comes to my health. All jokes aside, I have always been a healthy eater. My mom raised me on organic food and whole grains, and was doing so before people even talked about it.

6 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Spicy on Valentine’s Day and Beyond

Friday, February 14th, 2014

By Guest Blogger Laurie Gerber

Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovebirds! I’ve been with my husband for 20 years and so far neither of us has cheated. We have something really great, but if you read my blog, you’d know it wasn’t always so good. We had our troubles and issues in our marriage, same as all couples. I will tell you that it is what we chose to do about our issues, that has kept our love thriving and our marriage hot. Prepare to change your thinking!

People get frustrated with keeping love alive, partly because they’ve been conditioned by movies and common culture to believe that with the “right” person, all the romance and spark will appear “naturally.” I teach a different story. Love and romance usually come easily when we’re young or when the relationship is young. After that, it takes work. Don’t view that as an injustice or a burden, but rather an opportunity to grow up and take charge of your life.

Well, actually, we ARE talking about our monthly period, but in a different way.

How To Get Your Marriage To SIZZLE And Not FIZZLE (VIDEO)

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Most of us are familiar with the Penny in the Jar Theory, explained on this week’s parenting segment. But I won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t heard of it.

Truth: After marriage and kids, couples can begin to take each other for granted, get bogged down by routine monotony, and can sometimes feel as if they are staring at a complete stranger, rather than their loving partner. I once read a stat that went something to the tune of: After having sex with the same person 100 times, redundancy sets in. Even for the world’s most beautiful people like Brad and Angelina, 100 times is the supposed magic number where sex gets boring with the same person. Things that make you go hmmm…

On this week’s Global TV parenting segment, I talked about sex and marriage after kids. How do you bring back the sizzle, and get rid of the fizzle? I saved the video for today, hoping to provide a little inspiration for the weekend. Below is the G rated version, although we still received a tweet on Twitter that said read: “That was a hawt segment. *fanning myself.*” Obviously I couldn’t suggest XXX porn to get your partner revved up, or demonstrate sex positions, but this should hopefully do the trick for you. ;)
