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.

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. ;)

I’ve always been on the unofficial search for better sex tips. In my early 20′s, my social circle consisted of really good looking beefy men who had lusty arms so sculpted, they could protect a lady from any danger. Hormones were raging all around, and booty calls between friends happened… in a no-strings-attached college kind of way.

How To Add Spice and Romance To Your Relationship With Feng Shui

Friday, May 17th, 2013

By Guest Blogger Kathryn Weber

When it comes to slipping between the sheets, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is feng shui in your bedroom. Yet it’s the feng shui of your bedroom that could just make the difference between a so-so romantic experience and an overarching deity of oohs and aaahs.

Bedroom-Feng-Shui-These-Days

Bedroom parity can solve the bedroom rarity of solid and satisfying sex for both partners. Yes it can. How can that be? Well, think about your bedroom as a symbol of your relationship. Is it broken down in the middle like the mattress and filled with laptops and tablets, similar to the way your work intrudes in on your love life?

Maybe you have a stack of books a foot tall next to the bed. What does that say about what the bedroom is for? To get your love life into a new gear, take a good look around. If your bedroom says mommy and daddy, exercise, work, reading, shopping or any other word besides rest and romance, there’s a problem.
