When it comes to change, mindset is one of the ultimate drivers in taking action towards achieving a goal. As a a person giving or receiving information, it is often just hearing the benefits and downfalls of certain strategies are not enough to bring an individual to the brink of action. In other words, you as an individual are entirely responsible for changing.

At the end of class today, the 3-5 year olds put their hands in the middle and we all started drumming. "we are stong and powerful kids".
I hope that they will keep their wide eyes and light hearts to enjoy life as they move through teen years and on. We had one of the "funnest" classes ever today!
Tiger rolls, cross block, pull, meditation, laughs!
Hubby and I started our 7 day detox. I mentally prepared myself for the worst. But it wasn't too bad.I had moments of hunger pains and moments of nausau. Which is usally what happens to me if I don't eat. The program we are using has a detail chart for us to follow. We were able to have fruit, veggies, fruit juice and vegatable broth throughout the day. I did feel kinda yucky by the end of the day and was happy to go to bed and sleep it off.
Another week has past and if you are anything like me you evaluate the way you ate. How did I do? Well not so well. I ate out at fast food restaurants... quite frequently actually. Why do I do this? I know better. We all know better by now. But it seems like everyday I make up some excuse and instead of eating a veggie hummus with fruit on the side I'm ordering a hotdog and cheese fries( darn you Portillo's!). I try not to beat myself up though. Things like this happen and we all need our indulgences.

You travel to your favorite hiking destination only to see a man in the distance about to bungee jump off of a cliff. You aren’t worried since you know the elastic response of the bungee will bring him right back up. Another man next to him ties a paracord rope around his waist and also jumps. “THAT’S SUICIDE!”, you exclaim with horror. But this is the case when our soft tissue networks are tight. That’s right; the guillotine in this situation is soft tissue.

Benefits of Cross Training Lots of people have a favorite type of exercise or a favorite cardio machine they use at the gym. While it is great that they enjoy exercising, there are many benefits to switching up your routine and cross training- varying your fitness program by combining different types of exercise activity.
I have to remind myself sometimes to slow down when the weather warms up and the days are pleasingly longer. I will tend to overdo it outdoors while losing track of time, only to come in past dark when it is bedtime and still not have had dinner. Oh boy, now what.Slow down until I am acclimated to the heat. The mosquitoes and gnats help in that department with all the stopping to smack and swat away.Have a container of water at the ready, to drink and splash on myself.Wear a wide brimmed hat to keep the harsh sunlight off the face and out of the eyes.
