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]
It is hard to believe that we are in week 10.  Wow, have I seen some changes.   I feel better, have more energy, I am molding bad habits into good habits.  Thanks to all our wonderful sponsors you have changed 80 lives for the better and hopefully there will be no turning back for us.  I plan to stay on this journey for life and this was the encouragement that I needed to get started.  No matter the outcome, I am a winner because I am headed in a healthy direction! A special thanks to Clea . . . [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]
So, we all agree that goals are a good thing, right? They should be SMART goals. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. So, related to fitness and health, here are some of my SMART goals.   Goal 1 Specific- I will lose an additional 40 pounds  Measurable - I will accomplish this by the end of September  Achievable - I am currently on track to do this.  Relevant-I know that this will help me to achieve my cycling goals not to mention the added health benefits of sha . . . [View Full]
The 12-week 2015 Be Healthy Challenge kicked off the week of March 23, and it will end the week of June 8. As of today, May 24, we have three more weeks. I am already feeling the pangs of not having my team and trainer to support and encourage me and hold me accountable when the BHC is over. And I'll just tell you now, the support and accountability are two things I haven't figured out how to maintain. In other areas, though, I have set some goals in managing my future health, which I will share . . . [View Full]
It's so hard to believe that the 12-week Be Healthy Challenge is winding down.  For our current blog entry, Challengers are charged to set SMART goals for the upcoming 12 weeks, so we can continue our current momentum and keep making positive, healthy choices in the weeks to come.  Setting measurable, short-term goals is a great way to make sure that we keep making strides in the right direction to continue becoming healthier.  In thinking about how I want my health journey to look in the wee . . . [View Full]
