I know I know....again with the exercise thing. "So what if it's National Health and Fitness Month? What does that have to with me?" Well.....ALOT! Because the fitter you are, the healthier you are and that impacts the people around you; the people you love, the people you work with and even the people you stand next to in line at the grocery store. Don't you want to be a positive life force and not a Debbie Downer? Don't you want to be the best you can be for everyone around you?
The obesity epidemic and healthcare doom and gloom are ever present in the news these days and even if you avoid the news, all you have to do is look around. Adults are overweight, children are overweight, and too many people just don't feel good. In spite of this reality, more than three-quarters of Americans are insufficiently active. Even for the minority of folks who achieve the recommended 30 minutes a day of physical activity, a significant portion of the day tends to be spent sitting.
Tomorrow is my big day . . . the OCB Mid-Atlantic Supershow! This is the show I've worked so hard for, carb depleted for, sacrificed nights out with my husband, family, and friends for. All I can say at this point is: I am ready as I am ever going to be mentally and physically. What happens tomorrow lies in the hands of a panel of judges who have their opinion about what physique they want to represent the OCB and there is nothing more I can do. But I have done all that I can to try and embody that aesthetic, and it has been an interesting ride!

Happy FRIDAY!I am starting up my KID FIT classes this month. I am needing feed back from parents on what days, times, and locations work best for you. I am available to offer the class Monday-Friday, morning and afternoon. I am also open to having the class on the weekends if I have enough interest. I can offer the class at a local park, or at the Pathways Church Ballroom which is located at:
All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: Act as if it were impossible to fail. That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right-about-face which turns us from failure towards success.~Dorothea Brande
