It's time to lace of those running shoes and enjoy a workout outside. Changing up your cardio routine through the week can be challenging. Most people see running as a boring type of exercise compared to high intensity training or circuit training workouts. Well to me running is meditation, a break from the strenuous workouts and time to connect with nature.
Everyone has those days that nothing is working out for them. Whether your late for work, late for an appointment or maybe rushing to get the kids to school. Being stressed while driving causes road rage most of the time and it becomes easy to take out that anger on other drivers. Everyone has witnessed someone swerving in and out of traffic, yelling at another driver or giving the middle finger. Over the years one thing that has helped me stay calm and relaxed was learning to become a master of my breathing.
We take for granted too often the people who are apart of our lives. I know I've been guilty of that. There are people who are there for a moment, others a season, and some for a lifetime. For each person who comes into your life whether it was a good or bad experience--YOU choose to learn from it and GROW! BUT if a relationship is causing the life you have to be snuffed, suffocated, strangled, or harmed in anyway--do NOT stick around hoping for it to get better!
We have been holding Taekwondo classes in the Meade Countly High School wrestling room for a month now, and what an awesome turnout! Fifteeen students regisered with the MAC and have been attending regularly since February 11. Four of these students attend the intermediate class and assist with instructing the beginners.
As I was driving back from my daughter's ballet class a few years ago, I couldn't stop thinking about a certain topic that has been on my mind for some time. What are our real reasons for working out and eating right? How can this affect our results? I know we all claim to want to be healthier but is this our real reason?
Over the years that I have spent since my life changing event of blowing out my knee, and realizing what it means to truly be hurt and know your weaknesses. This event in my life taught me how much of a challenge it is to get back on your feet after life has knocked you down and knocked you out. The big question is, "Do you want it bad enough?" As Rocky said, "...But it aint about how hard you're hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much can you take and keep moving forward?

Many affiliate exercise with stereotypical associations encouraged or identified by sciences and society. Science, gyms, disease risk, aesthetic appeal, health and wellness, medicine, and the like. Yet it is less than often that people look at exercise as achieving a higher level of thought. Yes, I am talking about exercise philosophy. Now, I’m not saying people do not think, or that achieving a higher perspective of the self has no been present in the likeness of yoga or tai chi, but society does not associate exercise with experiencing deep thought.
