Want a Better Way to Floss?

Do you hate flossing as much as I do? Are you looking for a better way (might I add – more fun way) to improve gum health? A Waterpik is the way to go. I bought one and have never looked back. #nomorestring ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do […]

How To Be More Than Just a Number – Simply Be You

Women are always reading or talking about their numbers. Numbers of years they’ve lived. Number of gray hairs they’ve found. Numbers rising on the scale. I feel and have mostly felt throughout my own life of numbers that it’s craziness when we boil our lives down to numbers (particularly those looking back at us from […]

Cheers to the Last Three Years – Time To Get More

When I think of the last three years, post breast cancer diagnosis, of all the life I’ve packed into the days I still count, I’m cut off at the knees. TO THE FLOOR, OMT! My life has been one of mountainous joys and of viciously shanked heartaches. But, baby, I’m still standing and I’m here […]

How Many Do You Really Need?

Fruits and vegetables contain vital nutrients and fiber for protection against many illnesses and disease. Eating the daily recommended amounts helps to ensure optimal health. But, it can be confusing, right? Nine servings! 12 servings! ONE MILLION SERVINGS! Well, maybe not one million… Even as a runner, and one who is focused on health, I […]

Be Brave For a Friend Who Suffers

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things – Or Is It?

Cancer. I profoundly hate that six letter word. It conjures fear, loss and uncertainty. There’s not one nice thing I can say about it. It devours monetary resources. It mocks future dreams and plans. It steals understanding of what the hell is happening to my body?! As of this writing, I am two-years and a […]

How To Find a Yoga Video For Back Pain

Anyone struggling with back pain? Anyone try yoga videos, only to be disappointed? ~raises hand~ MEMEMEMEMEME! My history of searching for relief: I’ve used lacrosse balls for relief (love me some lacrosse balls). I’ve used chair cushions for relief (I sit a large portion of the day). I’ve tried using a weirdo ball chair. I’ve […]

Want To Make Your Running Life Easier?

OMT! is a seasoned runner, but maybe you prefer walking or hiking. The question is this: What the heck to you do with your phone, keys, snack and cash when getting your exercise? Don’t you dare say fanny pack…don’t say it! ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your shopping […]

Are You Considering a Smart Heart Rate Watch?

Do you use a smart heart rate watch, or are you considering purchasing one? Up until now, my method of keeping track of my heart rate has been the simple and effective method of being able to talk though a workout. Or sing through one. This from one who is pretty much tone deaf. ~poor […]

What Do You Eat When You’re Trying To Survive Chemo?

It has been a little bit over two years since my breast cancer diagnosis and there are two things I think of regularly: #1: I am grateful to be alive. #2: It took a lot of effort to eat while going through chemo. This post was written in the throes of that terrible time. It […]
