Soon (February 11, 2014) we will be starting a Taekwondo course in Brandenburg, KY, at the Meade County High School's new wrestling room. This is a very exciting endeavor and one I have been looking forward to for many years. When my family first arrved in Kentucky in 2002, we knew this was where we wanted to return after my husband's retirement from the Army. When I began studying Taekwondo in 2005, I knew it was something I wanted to bring back here to benefit this community.
The biggest excuse I hear is, "I don't have the time to exercise."Like every other necessary activity in our life, we have to plan for it, or do it in small increments. So put your workouts on your calendar and stick to it. Plan where you're going to exercise, what moves you'll do, and for how long. Remember, 15 minutes walking is better than nothing at all.You can even add minutes of exercise throughout your day and it will all add up at the end of the week! Here are suggestions:Try taking stairs whenever you canWalk at lunch time.
February is here; it's now 31 days from the start line if you are using January 1st as the beginning. Even if you are not, tomorrow will take care of tomorrow. I am writing this so I can say it to myself. So often I look so far up the road that I miss the subtleties that is walking beside me. It is far easier to offer this advice than it is to absorb it for oneself. Well, I am practicing not looking so far out there that I miss the sweetness that is right here, right now. A quote that I have used in my Warrior Within class reminds of just that:
January 29, 2014 Thanks to everyone who donated their time, energy, talents and money we were able to raise enough funds to pay for our 501(c)(3) application! As you know, the purpose of this event was to raise funds for the Athena Fitness, Alpha Force volunteer program nonprofit application. The willingness to help displaced women and children in our community gain access to fitness and wellness services makes all the difference for our organization and community.
