I love food. You will notice my slight obsession as you peruse this site. That said, after 34 years of eating, drinking and merry-making, I realized I had to sort myself out. In my younger years, I was very active. I earned a black belt in Shukokai Karate, ran track and cross country, was cheerleading captain (spirit fingers!) and if eating food was a sport, I would have been a gold medalist.
Life did catch up. My body changed. I started distributing weight…differently. I came to the realization that my blood pressure issue was partially genetic and partially self-inflicted. It was a come to Jesus and I realized: It was time to begin a solid workout routine. I’d like to think I’m a pretty disciplined person, but when it comes to anything gym/fitness related, I am a whiny child. When I mentally made the commitment to find a trainer the world conspired to help me on this arduous task, and I happened to open up my latest issue of New York Magazine to find an article about Hugh Jackman (whom I love!) and his (drum roll) trainers. I thought to myself “Hugh is the perfect human so his trainers must be incredible.” I did a little research and had an appointment with the DogPound within 48 hours.
Holy hell. I never worked out so hard. The DogPound is no joke. The warm up started with burpees.
Their philosophy is simple: Break through your limits to reach your goals…and smash it!
So who are these miracle workers that craft the beautiful bodies of celebrities, industry big wigs, Olympic athletes and mere mortals (like myself)?
These guys radiate positivity and genuinely care about their clients. Their innovative approach, devotion and pursuit of the best and most credible fitness info has resulted in quite a roster of clientele and loyalty. They are creators, teachers, givers.
The DogPound has become my badge of emotional and physical health, and for a former gym grump, this is a huge milestone. I cannot thank them enough for the transformation.

Jerusalem was my spiritual journey and will begin my series of travel stories on 3QT. I spent my life growing up Roman Catholic but never identified with it completely. I took courses on religion in college to better understand the historic aspect of each one and give myself an opportunity to interpret each religion using my own filters. Of all of them I wound up identifying with Buddhism the most! (That’s another story!). I did decide I wanted to visit Jerusalem once in my life. What was it about this area of the world that held the most sacred spots of our 3 major religions? For 3000 years, the Holy Land has seen unwavering faith, war and conquest from what seems like every nation. I had to experience this mysteriously, fascinating and magical land for myself.
Keith and I journeyed to Old City Jerusalem over Memorial Day weekend 2015. We only scratched the surface of the Holy Land based on the amount of time we had, but seeing Jerusalem left a lasting impression on us.
Jerusalem is a holy city for Jews, Christians and Muslims. It has a fractured past and an uncertain future, but this small land remains central to our three global faiths.
In true form, I love my lists and have decided to format my travel stories with the personal experience first and then the lists of places to go, what to see, facts, etc. I hope you enjoy this first entry.

Where to Eat: (as you will notice, Keith and I participate in ‘Food Tours’ on all holidays – we have earned every calorie!)
This city gives off a spiritual high. I cannot explain it…you just have to experience it for yourself. The cultural cognoscenti talk about the offerings of religion, theater, museums, but there is so much more than that. Sometimes it takes just walking around, getting lost and rediscovering something so old that will somehow become new and inspiring in your life.
Brielle and Keith adopted me in June 2004. I’ve had a pretty good life. While my dad is more of the disciplinarian, I’ve got my mom wrapped around my paw. She treats me so good I was in the Daily News for my eating habits. I can’t complain. When I heard she was starting 3QT, I told her I wanted in. I’m wise and old and figured I could impart my knowledge on some pet related topics.
With the help from my friend Cristina Racanelli, the President of Wipe Your Paws Inc. how to order prednisone taper here is my first post: Holiday Presents!
The gift to give the dog of the hostess for any holiday party: Bubba Rose cookies
Bubba Rose is a bakery in New Jersey that ONLY makes dog cookies, cakes and pupcakes. They believe that every dog treat should be made with real, wholesome, clean ingredients. That’s why they only use local, organic, fresh ingredients from the USA and never any preservatives. Every treat they bake is wheat, corn, soy & gluten free (the most common allergens and fillers in commercial dog products) and always baked in small batches in their bakery in NJ. They only use local, cage-free eggs as well. Just healthy, simple ingredients go into their treats. As if all of that wasn’t enough to sell you on Bubba Rose, they make the cutest darn dog cookies you’ve ever seen. order prednisone canada
For the dog that loves to chew: Deer antlers!
“What??? REAL deer antlers?!?!” you say? The answer is YES! These deer antlers are naturally shed (read: no deer were harmed in the gathering of antlers). They are organic, odorless and long lasting. Even the toughest of chewers can’t go through these chews like they do most. Best part is they come in a wide range of sizes so you can find the perfect one whether you have a Chihuahua or a Great Dane. My favorite is American Antler Dog chews (though a ton of companies sell them). buy prednisolone acetate eye drops
For the traditionalist dog: West Paw Holiday toys
West Paw makes an array of adorable holiday dog toys. My favorite is their Rudy and Mini Rudy toy. All toys are made in the USA which we love! West Paw also makes some cute cat toys too in case there’s a feline living in the house. buy apo prednisone
The gift to give the dog lover in your life: Auburn Jewelry’s “Where’s Dexter?” pendant
Each “Where’s Dexter?” pendant is a portrait of an actual dog’s ears. In order to make these adorable pieces, Auburn Jewelry enlists some help from their customers. You send them a picture of your pup and they use that picture to hand cut the silhouette of dog’s ears and turn them into a wearable piece of jewelry. This is the ultimate gift for the dog lover in your life (or a gift for yourself perhaps?). Who wouldn’t want to wear their very own dog around their neck in the form of beautiful, colorful jewelry? prednisone for dogs buy online uk
