What a CREW!!!

OMG- I attended my first CREW meeting at the Zion Park District last Friday, after school.  The room was filled with women, who want to help motivate our entire community to be healthy and have fun racing and training for 5K.

Where have I been?  I am so glad that Cheri Ditzig kept me in the loop. What an amazing group of women. 

They are organizing 5K races for anyone who wants to run in our communities and beyond. If you need a goal this year-attend one of the races that will be in Zion, IL.

Later on this week, if you've never run a 5K before, I will list a training for you to follow.  By May, you'll be ready to enter the Mama's Run.

Running is the most effect way to lose weight, build stronger bones, do marvelous things for our hearts, mind and body.  Start out slow and you'll want to go more as the weeks past.  Running is free therapy!


High Fives and once again--enjoy the week.

Time to Re-Energize!

It's February already!  The time is flying by and my question to you today is this:  What are you doing with your time?

Are you spending it with your family and creating new memories?  Are you committed to a cause and doing the leg work to accomplish that task?  Or are you vegging on the couch, hoping and wishing that you could do something!!

Well, if you just promise yourself to do one thing that would inspire your family, one thing that would nuture you and one thing that you could do for another are on your way to a successful, happy day.

I know, may sound simple enough, right?  But you have certain circumstances in your life that get in the way? If you don't know this by now, we all do. So, why are some people more productive then others?  They set goals, they write them down, they post them either on frig or somewhere where they can see them.  Accountability-people.  Promises to themselves and when they keep those promises, extraordinary things start to happen in their lives.  It's true.

So, just for today...get up one hour early and set your day in motion. You have the choice to set it. Yes, and if an incident happens or someone says something negative, deal with it then, then toss it aside. Keep moving forward with a smile on your face.

If anything, it will drive people nuts wondering what you're so happy about! 

Next question-are you working out?  Studies show, that people that workout are happier, healthier and can handle life experiences better.  This is your year, contact someone if you need a little motivation and get started.  You'll be glad you did!

High Fives, everyone and enjoy the week ahead!!!!
