My plan to keep my journey alive is to start teaching an exercise class. I would like to do a Christian version of ZUMBA.  I am a certified ZUMBA instructor but many of the ZUMA songs we get are in Spanish and a lot of the moves are not always lady like.  My class will be a class of great dancing with more upbeat Christian songs.   I plan to send my Be Healthy Challenge Team an invitation to the first class.  Be on the look out.  I am still deciding a name for the class.  I hope to be up  . . . [View Full]
Goal 1: S: Run a 5k. M: Train 3x a week using a 5k running plan. A: My training has prepared/is preparing my cardiovascular system and I want to continue R: I've always wanted to like running, so maybe if I do this I will feel accomplished and want to continue. T: Run a 5k in under 50 minutes by the end of Summer.    Goal 2:  S: Reduce body fat by 2% OR down to 175lbs M: Continue to track in MFP and portion control. A: The habit of tracking is there and has helped me visualize what  . . . [View Full]
In case you needed reminding, the Internet is a vast and often anonymous place. This applies not only to its global scope and the number of web pages out there, but to the technical nuts and bolts we all tend to ignore. Take domain endings for example, otherwise known as gTLDs (generic top-level domains). Until recently, there were only 22 of them available. The most common among them being .com, .net and .org, plus some country specific domain endings such as .us or If you think back . . . [View Full]
I have always wanted to do a triathalon however, I am not the greatest swimmer.  So, with that being said, I am going to start training in the water and plan to sign up for the triathalon.  This is something that I do not want to perform by myself so, I am on the lookout for a partner or a group to complete this task with.  I am really hoping that my body holds up :)  Another goal that I have always wanted to do is to compete in a fitness competition!  I have had a brief conversation with . . . [View Full]
We've just completed week 9 of the Be Healthy Challenge and this week's focus is setting goals for the future. For many, setting the goal is the easy part, but reaching it is a different story. S.M.A.R.T. goals have times, dates, and specific action plans. Setting this type of goals feels less daunting and more manageable. So, as I think about how I want my life to look after week 12 I need to be realistic. Overall I am pretty healthy, so my goal will be to simply try and stay that way.  So he . . . [View Full]
Web dating starts great possibilities concerning the people you really get to meet. You may end up end up receiving in to interracial relationships which actually work in every way for you personally. It is not a crime to love a person from another race. Inter-racial marriages could be quite successful when the complement is not imperfect. In case you wind up within an inter racial connection, you'll need to play with your cards right to make it-work.1. Have an open mindWhen the mind open to the . . . [View Full]
The safety of workers can never be overlooked all types of workplaces.You can never foretell when you might get injured. Mishaps and injuries are unexpected and you might face uncertain situations at any time. This is where safety tools come in picture and they are entirely designed to keep you away from unexpected injuries. Emergency situations can easily be handled with safety equipment. It is rightly said, 'It's no use of crying over spilt milk'. So, don't wait for the mishap to happen, try . . . [View Full]
Wow, this is the time to get S.M.A.R.T.  Being a school teacher, we love acronyms for our students as a guide or perhaps a strategic learning tool.  With the end of the school year, I have relied heavily on my teammates to push me through this time.  It's one of a teachers "hectic" times where it is easy to say, "I'm so busy, I'm not going to make it today".  However, I made it! Accountability has always been an issue with my workout routine, so I would like to thank my warrior, Jo Voros as  . . . [View Full]
As of today I have reached my original goal as far as weight and size for the be healthy challenge.  In setting smart goals for myself for twelve more weeks seems easy, but when the challenge ends and the team is no longer pushing me I'm a little apprehensive. My goal is... I will maintain my current weight and build my strength, I will maintain weight and build strength by continuing to use my fitness pal to track my food and exercising three times each week. I have learned so much  . . . [View Full]
How can something called SMART goals make me feel so dumb? I’ve had two weeks two write a blog post about a concept that was new to me, SMART goals, which are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound. But I really, really didn’t want to do it. I am more of an impulse person. I go with my gut. I get a feeling about something and I go with it. So the moment I read about SMART goals, I started to get twitchy. Stopping to think about goals that are specific, measurable, achiev . . . [View Full]
Sung to the tune of 'My favorite things' from the Sound of Music. Quinoa and kale chips and green colored veggies. Salads and fruit bowls and watermelon wedges. Legend Homes as my sponsor and all my team mates Be Healthy Challenge is ever so great! Week 8/9 are in the books and we are heading down the home stretch.  It is very easy for me to know what my future plans hold as each day I feel better, healthier and stronger than the day before.   I love the natural high a good workout brin . . . [View Full]
  This is the 9th week of the Be Healthy Challenge and I have seen some great results.  I’ve been meeting with a great group of people three times per week at Chadwicks Personal Fitness, changed my eating habits and making better health decisions every day.  I feel better, my pants fit better and my energy level has increased.  But what I’m I going to do when the program ends in three weeks?  I have set some SMART goals for myself to make sure I keep seeing the results I have enjoyed s . . . [View Full]
I have learned that being healthy requires some planning and being smart about our choices.  This brings to mind a saying I have heard before, “failure to plan is a plan to fail”!  It just makes sense to think about what you’re doing and where you’re going and take the time to set goals for yourself.  As we are nearing the end of our challenge, on this week 9, we have set a S.M.A.R.T plan.  It’s not only smart, but a good plan of action for continuing my journey of health and nutri . . . [View Full]
