Bruce Lee was a stickler on fitness. Dispite his picture perfect physique you see on the screen, he had is own personal obstacles to overcome. He was born with one leg longer than the other. He grew up as a small, skinny child and trained in wing chun to improve his health. His efforts had their rewards in addition a quick recovery from a back injury during a possible heavy, weight training session.
So it’s been a while since I wrote a blog. My days have been very busy which I must admit I prefer. Sometimes when we are super busy we forget about our own health and focus on everything else. Being in the fitness industry and being in the position to motivate people all day long is a fantastic job, with great rewards, but it is of upmost importance that fitness professionals take care of themselves as well.
Did you know that our bodies are about 60 percent water? And, almost every function that takes place within our bodies depends on water. Plus, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to our cells, and provides a moist environment for our ears, noses, and throats. In order for our bodies to function properly, and keep us feeling great, we must replenish ourselves frequently by drinking water and other fluids containing water. The amount of water we require everyday to stay healthy varies from one person to another.

I haven't been writing in a long time! The Busy's have gotten the best of me! BUT, I have not been too busy to continue on my path to better health! I find that my work-outs have never been better nor stronger! I am preparing for a run in the fall. I am busy with my summer work, family and especially ME! Most importantly, ME! If I don't take care of me, no one else will. I continue to eat low carb, high protein and watching the alcohol calories! Loving summer, grilling vegetables and the warm, starry skies of summer in Michigan!
Yesterday I was blessed to lead a group of local 5th graders through a workout. What started as an hour long workout, quickly escalated and grew into over an hour of movement and excitement. I had a mission yesterday: I wanted the kids to learn that moving is fun and they should revel in their own abilities. I didn't want to pound them into a mold. By the time I left, each of the children were sweaty and smiling ear to ear. They had dance battles, kicked it up a little with some boxing, and stretched to serenity with yoga.
