“After the Holidays I will start…”

REALLY!!?! I really dislike this excuse for not starting to live healthier now!  And I have already started hearing it this year….Good grief! as of today there are still 68 days left of 2012, 1/5 of the year is still here,  conservatively speaking this is 30 more workouts and 200 more meals but only 5 days of Holidays! This means there are far more opportunities to live healthy yet in 2012.  If you were to choose to eat more veggies or drink more water for the rest of the year maybe you wouldn’t gain the traditional 10# between Thanksgiving and New Years….wouldn’t that be nice?  And if you didn’t gain those extra pounds think what different resolutions you could make in January. Think about it…”the holidays” are only a few days of the year, let’s get going now to make you healthier today! love and health to you Denise

Fall classes and rainy day stuff

It’s raining and I don’t feel like getting wet or cold or going out in the dark…..sound familiar? Heck I use these excuses and I am at the gym! So what’s a good way to beat these excuses? Accountability! To each other, to a group, to an instructor, if you have to….to your pocketbook…. CLASSES! Find some group fitness classes that fit into your schedule and then write them in on your calendar, no relying on memory at least until you have found the class you can’t live without! The beauty of regularly attending classes is that you get to know the instructor and if they are great instructors they notice when you are missing and make a point of chatting another time.  Also there are the other participants, get to know them, find out their names and say “hi” each time, pretty soon you have some bonds going there too that you want to make sure you come frequently...

A time of change

October…the trees are changing color, the weather is turning cold, I am having to clear my car windows now before I leave in the morning, there is squash at the farmers markets and the apples are extra crisp…. and my world is changing….as I am changing what I look at what i look at is changing…i just read that quote today and wish I had remembered who originally said it but i was off thinking about what I was looking at….my daughters who I definitely have to look up to look in the eye, my focus in my work, my refocus on my dreams and as I track where I am in relation to my goals they start to move…for instance, I met with my 401k financial guy 2 weeks ago to talk about my 5 year plan to move to an island, since then I have chosen not to purchase  a large mirror for my home for 2 reasons;...

  September 2, 2012.     Well you have probably guessed that website stuff is not my favorite thing, but thanks to my awesome kids and wonderful computer guy I will get better!

something worthwhile

Have you ever just felt compelled to get behind something worthwhile and give it all you’ve got? Today I got inspired by one of my business contacts to do just that…Joe Johnson of OneForJoe.com is orchestrating an event for May 19 (that’s Armed Forces Day–this is meaningful to me coming from a family of military men) to pay special tribute to all of our troops, past, present and future. It is going to be amazing and then the follow up will be even greater. Joe is one guy out to help a lot of people and all he is asking for to do this is one buck from each of us…pretty darn do-able. Please go check out his website and his facebook page for more details. But onto my moment of inspiration….how can I help? how can I get the word out? how can I get him more money to do this fantastic event? So here it is…for every $10...

Weekends…how do you use them for your workouts?

Are you a weekend warrior, spending hours on long runs or bike rides? Or “catching up” on the missed workouts from the week gone by? Working ahead for the week to come? Or the complete opposite, you have spent every evening in the gym and the weekend is no time for the gym? Or is it just another day in the workout schedule? I use it for one of my favorite classes (kickboxing) and then stay away from the gym until monday but if it is a particularly awesome Minnesota weekend I will go for a walk or leisurely bike ride. Whatever your choice, be safe while outside, drink your water and remember to stretch when you are done so Monday can be just another day…. Yours in health, dwp
