A lot of people ask me how I stay slender. I believe the formula is the same for all my slim friends: it takes work and time and awareness. The “Oh I eat whatever I want and don’t exercise” thing is baloney. Those folks out there whom you think look great? They have consistently good habits. Here is my latest coaching blog with some information on what is needed to lose weight: http://alexandracoaching.com/losing-weight/ ... Read more

I delighted in all the hummingbirds fluttering around my neighbor Marie Claude’s feeder, so a few months ago I bought one for outside our bedroom window. I dutifully bought the white sugar for the “nectar”, filled the feeder with the sugared water at a 4:1 ratio just like the Audubon Center recommends and then eagerly waited for the little ones to gather around, chirping happily.

My friend Bill Chadwick invited me to give a presentation at his real estate office in Malibu, Malibu Living. I spoke about how to break bad habits and make healthy, new ones.

I highly recommend if you have some habits you want to chang... Read more

1) Hi Alexandra , My name is Jennifer , and I am a big fan of watching your tv show (baywatch) I have watched all episodes over and over and over. Do you ever miss working on tv and would you go back to filming tv? Jennifer Graves Hi Jennifer, I love being on a television series, even more than I love shooting movies! It is ironic, considering I do not own a tv now and have had television in my house a total of probably 6 months my entire adult life (so Ian could want the Tour de France each July, we would get cable for that time).  I made a conscious choice not to have television, because I felt I would have more e...
