Welcome to hilltop wellness

So here it is, my maiden blog post! Bear with me while I feel my way around. My approach to wellness is a bit holistic, encompassing a little bit of everything to create a personal wellness plan.

Epiphany

So, I was on my way to a Natural Solutions class this morning as usual looking forward to sharing my  love for essential oils with people looking to live a healthier lifestyle. Life is good. But also, somewhat uncharacteristically for me, I was feeling somewhat angry and frustrated. I was having a hard time dealing […]

Back in the habit…

No, I am not joining a convent! It has been almost a year since my last post about habits and about half a year since my last post so apparently my little discourse on habits was ineffectual. Even for me. So, let’s try this again. I have a new planner and new resolve to organize […]

Happy New Year

Here we are at the end of another year! They just seem to go by faster all the time. I know many of you are planning your resolutions for 2015. I also know many of those resolutions involve weight loss, fitness or improved health of some sort. Unfortunately, most of those resolutions will be forgotten […]

Anyway, I wanted to go into a little more detail about the importance of food choice in terms of overall health. Pretty much all […]

“Let food be thy medicine”

More than 2000 years ago, Hippocrates knew that food was crucial for glowing good health. Somewhere along the way we have drifted away from this and have allowed our doctors to take control. While there is absolutely a place in our life for the medical profession, I believe that by using food as our medicine […]

Fed up?

In recognition of todays release of “Fed Up” the movie ( which should be required viewing for everyone ) , I thought I would revisit the issue of diets. To start I will just toss out a few aphorisms from Michael Pollan et al. “Don’t fuel your body at the same place you fuel your vehicle” […]

Warrior Dash part deux

Well, here I am, three weeks out from my warrior dash. Egad. If you know me, you know that running really isn’t my thing. It is really the one thing about the warrior dash (besides my bete noir-the 20ft wall climb!!) that I find most difficult. I had not been out for a run in […]

Workouts

Here we are on a Sunday night. I hope we all had a good week and a great weekend. Are you ready for the week ahead? Meals  planned? Workouts scheduled? Great! Any new habits in the making? Remember, decide on a change small enough to prevent failure. Looking to start a workout routine? How about […]

Habits

Today I wanted to talk about habits. It wasn’t what I had originally envisioned for my next post, which had been planned for last week. I had all sorts of workouts in mind, getting started in the, well let’s go ahead and say it, the fitness habit. But that is not why I am writing about […]
