There's One In Evey Crowd

You know this person, we all do. In each and every "group" function you attend, he/she is there just to remind you that in an otherwise insane world, you are not yourself crazy. . .well, not as crazy or annoying as this person.

Usually a little unconventional when it comes to looks, this person isn't a classic beauty, but still stands out.
Not the diva that comes to mind when you hear the word diva, but yet this person is always the center of attention.
The rules of basic behavior and conduct don't apply here. Manors are usually absent, and being rude is the standard for this one.

Yes you know them. Remember in your second grade classroom there was that one person that didn't quite fit in, but made your life hell and the teacher's as well?
You are in the movie theater and this person is either; switching seats every two seconds, and being loud about it, talking on their cell phone or commenting to the characters the entire film. Usually it is a combination of the three.
Something is always wrong in this person's life. The chair isn't right, the lighting isn't right, blah blah blah.

In a quiet lecture this person has their laptop out, which just happens to have the loudest keys in the history of the world and they are tap tap tapping away.

They are moving chairs and taking up three spaces during seminars.

They haven't ever heard of a trash can and insist on tossing wrappers behind them when they are finished as if the public room you are in is their own personal waste paper basket.

The spill their drinks and don't even attempt to clean it up, but rather, move again, to yet another chair.

They always ask the most moronic questions which always have many levels and parts to them, just so they can hear themselves talk.

So I wonder, why? Why? How? How do these people make their way in the world and why is it that you all know exactly who I am speaking of?

Because there is one in every crowd.


  1. You are so right! And they always sit right beside me no matter how many open seats there are.

  2. This is why I do the "My friend is coming soon" and save the seat, or just be a pain in the butt myself until the person goes the other way! LOL

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
