This was a spectacular week for me. First, September turned to October. The October edition of Alive Magazine has an article written by yours truly. I rushed out a picked up a copy. It’s a light-headed look at back pain and how you can prevent it.  It shows that undeniable relationship between back pain and tooth brushes. It features a fitness model doing ball exercises

Oddly, the model did the exercises precisely as I described the in the article.  

Then I received another assignment from Alive Magazine to write some pithy comments about the upcoming Olympics. I started writing that already, which means I have no time to write smart remarks about fitness, employment, or life in general this week.

If you are in Canada, you can grab my 1500 word piece by stopping by their boutique health food and grocery stores from coast to coast to coast. Feel free to add it to your collection.  Everyone else  can see it at this link: .

I’ll be back.
