Good morning! I hope that you all had a great summer. I am very excited to be starting up my weekly blog again! For any new readers, each week throughout the fall, winter, and spring I will write an article on a different fitness-related topic. As the weeks go on, feel free to let me know of any topics you would like covered. I am even willing to research your particular topic so that I can write about it for you as comprehensively as possible! Enjoy.
The top educators in the world list "Setting High Expectations" as a priority step to reaching great achievements: a belief that WONDERFUL THINGS ARE going to happen to you! From your first hot air balloon ride, to switching careers, to changing your health habits: aim high to reach high in your life. Once you set a high expectation, plan 1. Resources, 2. Timed Steps, and 3. Support to move from belief to reality.
We’ve all been there. Too tired, too busy, we skip the workout we planned. We know exercise is beneficial: it reduces stress, helps prevent chronic health conditions, manages weight, and increases energy levels. When excuses are all too handy, motivation is hard to come by.
The campaign is at almost $100! Please click and share! I'd like to double that by the end of the week! And then double THAT....and double THAT..... :)

When I picked out my business name, I liked the sound of it, etc, but it didn't really sink in until recently that the word "commit" is so powerful! It makes people either run for the hills or "hunker down" and do what they say they are going to do. When one says they are going to commit to something, it's when the head and heart come together and make things happen. Energy is produced to propel one forward towards reaching and conquering the goal, the dream and the desired outcome.
Motivation comes from all types of different places and is extremely important when beginning your fitness journey. Some people are searching to improve their health while others could be exercising to look better. You truly need to find something that will help motivate you each day to get out of bed and get a solid training session in.
Treadmills provide a fantastic form of cardio-based exercise for individuals looking to work out in a time and space that suits their schedule. Using a treadmill can be more forgiving on the joints than running across asphalt or pavement, and the variety of treadmills that are available range from small models that barely take up the corner of a living room, to advanced machines that carefully keep track of the user’s vitals.
About a week ago we have the opportunity to visit our son Kieran who was interning in Bath, Maine this summer. We were able to climb, I say climb because hiking would not be the word, as there were no switch backs Cadillac Mt. in Acadia National Park. We had a great day with Kieran and a marvelous day to hike. We visited 6 different cities in Maine, each one more beautiful than the next! PLEASE go out and enjoy what nature has to offer. Nothing invigorates you more! If you missed the early summer posts on various benefits of exercising outdoors, please scroll down and take a peak.
