Weight loss is a hot topic this time of year as people are donning their swimsuits and shedding layers to beat the heat by the pool and at the beach.

Maybe it’s time to reach your fitness goals once and for all, or perhaps you’re just trying to maintain a healthy body. If your wellness goals include losing weight, building lean muscle mass is the best way to keep a strong and healthy body that will be prepared for any and all of life’s challenges.

Back “in the day” before there was SPF or sunscreen, I was a sun worshipper. Most of us in the over 50 crowd were taught that a great tan and even a touch of sunburn on the cheeks looked healthy. We spent summers on the beach in our itty bitty polka dot bikinis or sat on the lawn with a reflector.
Around my house summertime is for grilling. Steaks, burgers, chicken, veggies, fruit… you name it, we grill it. Once you ditch the buns, Paleo and grilling provide endless possibilities!
With warm weather and extended daylight hours, we spend more time in the great outdoors with our families, and many of us like to include our pets in those plans. While most of us like to believe that our back yards are safe havens for our family pets, many of us are unaware of common items that pose very real hazards for our furry friends.
