"It's Facebook's Fault!"

You know what I just don't understand people?

Why you are on Facebook and then bitch about it all the time? No one is forcing you to be on it but rather you choose to be there. You put all your personal information up there; where you went to school, where you grew up, how much you ate, what you ate, how big your shit was, who you are dating, photo after photo after photo after photo...(Please stop) and photos of your kids (Why? These are your children? Would you take out an add in the Chicago Trib/New York or LA Times with photos of your child? No of course not!! And they don't even get the readership FB gets) etc...and then you say that Zuckerberg is stealing your info? Newsflash Einstein, you are giving it to him and the rest of the world!

Yet you blame him and FB. One of my FB friends recently posted about FB ruining some relationship either she had or one of her friends had-I can't be sure which because the rant was so stupid, I couldn't be arsed to read all of it. The gist was that someone was spying on someone who was cheating, or flirting or something and so FB got the blame. I am sorry but WTF? If your boyfriend caught you cheating by opening the mail, would you blame the postman? Or if he saw you at a bar cheating at a bar, would it be the bar's fault? Nope, but of course it is FBs fault.

Here's an idea, don't snoop, don't cheat, and if you do, don't be stupid enough to post about it on FB.

Seems to me that the people of the world have become so "dumbed" down that they can't even take responsibility for their own actions and are always looking for someone to blame. "I was high, the dog did it, Facebook made me do it." Seriously, aren't you ashamed of yourself?

I also don't understand why everything said on FB is the truth. If you read it on FB it must be true. If someone posts anything about privacy settings, the whole FB community jumps on board to bitch and moan about how Zuck is screwing with everyone, instead of actually checking and being the commander of your own privacy.

Honestly people, don't you feel just a little stupid?

I'm just sayn'

"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…
