ON- ON- ON!!!!!!

ON- ON- ON!!!!!! I am ON!! It's so fun to feel ON~ workouts, life, work, responsibilities, hobbies, etc...all get done with ease when I am ON!!Have you ever wondered why some days you are just ON and others you are OFF??I've narrowed down my OFF days to the following problems:

Lakeshore Foundation

The Reason I work at Lakeshore Foundation:

I adopted a dog named Zoe!

After years of wanting to add a dog to my life I finally did it!!! She is so sweet and thinks I am the best thing ever! I can do no wrong! I went to the Rochester Humane society and picked up Zoe seven weeks ago. She makes my husband and I laugh every day. She has become my husbands morning treadmill. (even though he never wanted a dog) Best of all, because she is a year old, she came all potty trained, doesn't chew on anything but bones and doesn't drag me along on the leash. An excellent benefit for those of us who want a dog but don't have time to do the puppy phase.

Missing "O"ut!...Week #2!- BYOB!!!

Missing "O"ut! I had to make the decision to miss out on a trip with my hubby, son and daughter Gracie today....Why you ask??? Because I have other responsibilities, like work--- silly me, I tend to overbook myself with work and then at the last minute, ON SUNDAY, I have to skip family fun to get it done.  I really need to rethink my schedueling over the next month.  I am "OVER BOOKED"! LOL!!...

Getting Back in the Game!

The best way to get back on a normal healthy routine is to do it with intention and establish a short term goal that is maintainable to motivate you to get back on track! Once I returned from our honeymoon I gave myself a few days to relax and catch up on what I missed..then I jumped right back into a normal routine- Starting with fun workouts, walking my dog, and making homecooked meals and snacks! (Got awesome ideas from Spain) Finding what motivates you is key!

How Family and Friends Can Help (or Hinder) Your Commitment to Health

Making the decision to live a healthier life requires you to change. You can’t commit to eating a better diet without altering the way you shop for groceries, plan your meals or read a menu. Sometimes these choices affect the people who are closest to you. That’s why it’s important to let friends and family know you are making a change and hopefully win their support. And who knows? Maybe you’ll even help them during the process.
