Good Habits Are Hard To Break

MOTIVATION: If we keep talking, saying, thinking and doing the same things, eventually those things become a HABIT. 

New Year

With all the saddness that has happened this week, it gives me an opportunity to realize how great life is.  You must live like this is your last day on earth.  Every day/hour/minute is so special. Last night I went to our small town's parade with my grandson.  I held him more then ever.  I am even more focused on making my life better and longer.  I have committed to healthly choices and making the best of what I have to work with!I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a healthy New Year! 

Team Work

Teammates have a common cause that brings them together. Doing something with someone else and winning is much more rewarding than doing it alone.

This is a very possible goal for all levels of fitness.  Lets challenge ourselves and see just how close we can get to 1,000!  Good Luck!
