As this year comes to a close and we are ready to begin the New Year, most of us vow to make major changes in the coming weeks.  We attempt to live a healthier life, without taking the time to reflect on what that “healthier life” will look and feel like.  We think we need to change everything at once, but the fact is this is not realistic and we find our willpower depleted after a few weeks and give up.

Functional Fitness for stronger living
So much for September. Hello Halloween. Although it is a goal of mine to write more often, I only do when I am inspired AND make the time (aka make it a priority). Truth quote: "there are no excuses OR reasons, only priorities." Food for thought: will power doesn't exist and behavior change is accomplished when you believe that your efforts are worth it (aka belief leads to change).
