My sincerest thanks to Faith Community Church & the many people who came out last night for our event to raise funds for local holiday giving programs. In just a short 1.5 hours, we danced, laughed, sweated, and raised over $200 for two local Holiday Giving Programs. These dollars stay right here in Edmonds, helping families in need this holiday season. If you couldn't attend the event, there's still time to donate to the cause! Contact April Haberman at Faith Community Church Edmonds for more information.
So I had a booth at a women's health expo today. At the booth, as part of the display, I had several dumbbells set up. One thing that I noticed with some of the visitors is that they would walk around me as though I was the plague! Now, in my years of training, I have observed a lot of people, and can say that many of these people could benefit from a good strength routine. That said, I think that many women have had it ingrained in their heads that weights are for men only. Women....

There is an old saying, "that which does not kill us makes us strong!" While this is not 100% true, there lies a great deal of truth in it. For, we must go through things that are tough to sharpen us, much like a sword must be tempered with fire before it is strong. This is true in life as well as in the gym.

This week, I could tell the buzz with my clients was definitely the fact that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. With the excitement and anticipation of the holiday, for some comes the fear of losing control and over-eating. Keep in mind that it is not what we do in one day that affects our health and well-being so much as it is what we routinely do. Be mindful as you go about the holidays that there are always healthier food choices! But let's focus more on family and the real reason for the season... we have so many blessings and we are grateful for all of them!
OK, so I just saw the government considers pizza as a vegetable for the sake of school lunches! The reasoning is that a slice contains two table spoons of tomato sauce! I mean.....really? What's next? I know, a large vanilla milkshake with whipped cream and a cherry on top is a fruit! Hey it has the cherry!
I wanted to let all of you who read my blog know that I am sorry that I have not had a blog post for the past 2 weeks. I have been busy with work. I also want to let you all know that I will not be able to blog again till the first week in Feburary due to the demands put on me by the holiday season. I hope that you all have a great holiday season and check back in for my blog to strart up again in Feburary.
One week from today is Thanksgiving. What are you looking forward to the most? Friends and family getting together? Delicious food? Or eating until you feel really sick and then regretting it for the next week? This is a good time to practice enjoying the food your eating rather than how much you can eat. Remember, there is no contest of who can eat the most or who can feel the most sick. Feeling better, feeling good, enjoying the holiday is a great way to go.
