This week poses some challenges for me but I know with my team On the Brink with our trainer Brent Brinkmeier http://www.onthebrinkfitness.com/home.html I know I will get through this obstacle.  I know this Be Healthy Challenge is going to be just what I need to get myself on the right track to better health and I am hopeful my back and all its bulging disks figure out we mean business!

This week, I began the Be Healthy Challenge - a 12-week journey to improved health and fitness - along with 6 of my amazing co-workers.  Together with our wonderful trainer, Brent Brinkmeier, we are Team On The Brink! So many women from Longview Elementary wanted to be a part of this experience, that the school actually has two teams! It will be fun to compete with the other Longview team, as well as the other 7 teams participating in the challenge from all over Williamson County.   Per the d . . . [View Full]

It has been such an exciting week starting the Be Healthy Challenge, it is hard to contain myself!

  Week One: Days Four, Five, and Six   We rejoin our story on that first Thursday. There are no songs written for Thursday: it the day of almost Friday. Nothing more, nothing less. No three day weekends. And Thanksgiving has its own identity. Thursday is a day with no name unless you can link Thurgood to it. Then, at least, it has some good.   The man with no name had planned no exercise for this day because he had sensed no amount of willpower would overcome no energy. He was, after  . . . [View Full]
Hello!   Ok, so here we go!  On the way to getting healthy!  I'm super excited to be a part of the Be Healthy Challenge and look forward to all of the positive changes that will soon be coming my way.  I am a member of the Iron Tribe team which consists of a group of teachers from Crockett Elementary School in Williamson County.  I feel blessed to be part of a such a wonderful group of people, who have already motivated me to make better decisions (aka, probably not a great idea to eat th . . . [View Full]

The shoes I will wear during the 2015 Be Healthy Challenge (BHC) will be different from what I wore for the 2014 challenge - literally and figuratively.   Literally since I bought new shoes recently because I started slipping while pushing the sled at Quest Performance during one of Carter Hays training sessions. Figuratively because this year I am wearing the shoes of a mentor instead of a participant.  I have big shoes to fill because last year I was lucky to have both Julie S . . . [View Full]
     So as the planned adventure continues, and the key word here is "planned" because there were several things that I had to do to get ready for the Be Healthy Challenge.  Once I had my team sponsor USA Baby Franklin, I didn't have any more excuses for trying to talk myself out of this.  Now I was committed to my team.  So here it goes.  Here's what I and all the others have to do.      First, I went to another one of the Be Healthy Challenge partners Shots, Etc.! in Cool Spring . . . [View Full]
My first week on the Be Healthy Challenge was difficult and fantastic. Frequently, I experienced these emotions simultaneously.  This week was just about making it through.  I did make it through!  I made it through with less food and more exercise.  Less sleeping in and more strength training. Less sugar and more energy.  This upcoming week, I am going to focus on making specific goals.  If you run into me, ask me how this is going!  Excited for week two!  "There are no traffic jams al . . . [View Full]
It's the end of Week One of the 2015 Be Healthy Challenge. I already have so many people to thank, and that's all I want to do in my first post. I want to tell you all about why I've joined the Be Healthy Challenge and the insights I've already gotten in a few short days. But for now, please check out the list below and you'll get an idea of how many people and businesses are a part of this awesome annual wellness program that's open to you, too, by the way, if you want to get on board next time . . . [View Full]
