The value of a dollar was instilled in me at a young age by my Parents. "Money doesn't grow on trees" is a phrase I often heard when I wanted something.  I've yet to find a money tree; however, what I've realized in adulthood is...people spend time and money on what's important to them.  Whether it's travel, dining, entertainment, fashion, automotive, or a plethora of other options, we tend to make things we enjoy a priority and use our two most valuable resources (time & money) engaging in these activities. Everything else usually gets an excuse.

  In previous blogs, I discussed CHANGE and how to ADD to your days in order to better your lives. In this blog, I will continue the discussion of CHANGE and talk about pushing yourself past your comfort zone.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to be compassionate when you help others on their path to wellness, health and fitness. People come to you, oftentimes as a “last resort”, after years of struggling with either some medical problems or weight issues or nutritional habits. It is extremely hard for them to book that first date with the fitness professional, come to the meeting, sit down, open up right away and pour out all the worries, problems and stress, as they see the person for the first time in their life.

Spring time marks the time where energy comes back up to the surface and new growth surges. This is no more true than in Wisconsin where we will be come out of hibernation to soak up the first sunny day and everyone there after. It amazes me how good the first 40° day feels in Spring when it nearly shuts me down in the Fall.

What seems like a lifetime ago already, I served as a Montessori teacher for adolescents. In my Montessori orientation I heard the phrase repeatedly "Grace and courtesy". While this was not specifically a Montessori teaching, it was a philosophy adopted by Montessori educators because of the way it honored ones place in the larger community. Grace referred to a peace and respect towards yourself. Courtesy referred to that same peace and respect towards others. Since those days long past as a Montessori educator, I have returned to my original classroom...the gym.

  I know you’ve seen the memes that list some unhealthy food and its equivalent in terms of an exercise. And, I hear the questions all the time….how many calories will I burn doing this? How long do I have to work out to burn the calories of the hamburger I ate last night………in short, my answer is……..who cares?It really doesn’t matter!

                I have been getting a lot of questions about diet/nutrition and have been discussing my own diet/nutrition recently, so I decided to continue my theme of CHANGE and write a blog keeping the subject of nutrition in mind.
