We all go shopping and get gifts for our friends and loved ones. But what if you gave yourself a gift this year and didn’t gain those pounds that you would inevitably have had to work off during the spring and summer months? It’s a little over a week until Thanksgiving and another month until Christmas, but it isn’t too late to start planning how you will defend your figure during the coming weeks!Preemptive strike

This weekend was a good one~Saturday morning my hubby shot a buck...it was the first on our land and very sentimental!! We brought it in to the meat processor and it'll be some good eating~That afternoon I hit the trail for a run, It was crazy warm for November 11th. It was also VERY WINDY, but nice where I ran as it's sheltered from the wind.
The job of a real leader is not to tell people what to do. The job of a real leader is to enable each and every person to be his or her absolute best, and to point all those people in a positive direction.
You don’t need anyone’s permission to be a leader. All you have to do is to genuinely and respectfully make a positive difference in the lives of others
This morning as I updated one of my clients achievements it got me thinking about how to stay motivated and how to keep going strong month in and month out. Since starting my career as a trainer i've always preached about and been a BIG believer in tracking your progress. Not only does doing this keep you focused on what you can keep working to improve but it gives substantial evidence to note whether or not what your doing for your exercise program is working to help move you forward.

I love the off-season. That part of my training where I don't have an event planned for awhile. I get to look back over my last season (not a good one as I was plaqued with an injury!), look at what I learned, make the neccessary tweaks (more speed work, more time spent in the pool, more drills, less endurance runs, train certain muscle groups vs. others, etc) and plan for next season. I always get a bit giddy! The hope, opportunity and challenge the next season will hold!!! I'm reinvigorated to start.
I teach a circuit training class 2X a week at a corporate client. I've been working with the same core group of girls for about a year and a half. I've been talking to them about lifting heavy, pushing yourself harder. On Wednesday the girls had 30 seconds per exercise and my suggestion is that since its a short period of time perhaps we try to lift heavier. So as the girls moved through their stations they would comment on how heavy the last person lifted - wow, she did 80 pounds on the leg press! This one did 60 pounds on the lat pull down!
