Month #1 Closes

Jan 31,2013:  What a long month!  The month for new beginnings, starting over, resolutions, goals…whatever you want to call it has come to an end.  Some off us are diligent moving along…this is awsome!  Some of us are struggling…but hanging on…this is awsome also!  Don’t give up!  Some off still have not started…this is not good.  It’s not to late to get off your behind.  That’s up to you and only you to DECIDE changing your sedentary lifestyle is good for you.  Hoping it happens!  Let’s move on…..

Feb. is upon us.  A nice short month.  Time to start thinking about spring… outdoor events, tennis,golf, baseball, warm sunshine,  beach trips.  There is work to be done.  Re eval your goal from Jan. and see where you are.  Raise the bar on the things you’re doing good at.  Work harder or spend more time on the things your weaker at.  Ask questions.  Get help.  If workouts are your weakness…hire a trainer for a few sessions to get you going.  It’s like taking lessons.  You can do this.  You can eat healthier!  You can exercise! You can run better, farther, faster.  You can do better at whatever you want… just get the info and help that you need and do the dern work!!

Blog…Education

Wed Jan 30,2013:  Want to take a minute to tell everyone about my blogging experience.  I just started doing this Jan 1st…really quite by accident…along w/the training room on Facebook.  In one months time the training room has really grown.  It’s mainly full of people I know and the positive response to me and what others are sharing is awsome.  The blogging is having the same result except it involves more people that I don’t know.  As I have said when I started doing this…the mission is to reach others… weather your a couch potato or an elite athlete…just read and learn.  Share your thoughts, questions and experience…everyone can learn and help.  You never know what you may ask or share…how it could help someone else.  Anyway ,thanks to all for the support it keeps me inspired! Let’s keep things going…there’s tons of info and events out there.  Let’s have fun!

Ramp IT UP…PART 2

Tue 1/29/13:  I’ll elaborate more on ramp it up…since my computer is back up.   We are nearing the end of our first month of the lifestyle change.  This is the point where people start finding a way to talk themselves out of going.  I’ve done good for a month, I’m sore, I’m gonna cut back, I don’t see anything happening, the free trial you recieved is over….on and on.

For some of us it’s easy to go workout.  We love it! Can’t do without it…won’t do without it.  For us,  we’ll just keep do what we do, add variety, focus, etc.  Next time your at the gym look around and encourage someone who you know is new.  Something small will help someone who 1s new….just tell them keep coming back, keep working hard, give them a tip.  Remember it’s not easy for the them.

For the new people who have set this goal for 2013 to lead a healthier life style.  STICK WITH IT.   It takes dedication, motivation and focus.  Just keep driving to the gym, pulling out a DVD and hitting play, reading these article and doing the workouts.  You can’t have the body you want, or get of the BP pills, or have more energy, or lose weight, if you quit.
