Happy Half A New Year! Can you believe we are halfway through 2017? I have to be honest, I’m a little bummed I’m not typing this from my flying car that steers itself.
But the beauty of today is that it can be the start of something great. Look back to what your goals were at the beginning of this year. How are you progressing on them? Are you halfway there?
If so, awesome! If not, it’s not too late!
Just think of this as your reset button. This will be a way to either stay motivated or to get you back on track.
Your goal is to get in at least 90 workouts in the time we have left this year. That is a little more than 3 workouts per week, so it is completely doable. You have to be intentional about it though.
We all know that there will be stretches where you won’t be as active as other times. School starting back, football season, holidays, fall break, etc... That is all coming up on the horizon, so you need to have a plan in place ahead of time.
If you have an exercise class, group, or partner that you already meet with, that is ideal. The added accountability will come in handy. But what about on those days when your car breaks down, the kids are sick, you are working overtime, you go on a work trip, or any other scenario that is trying to mess your groove up?
I got your back my friend! On Wednesday I will send you a few options that you can do any time and any where. These will not require fancy equipment, a gym membership, or tons of space.
Hope you have an awesome 4th of July!
PS- If you want to get a jump start on those 90 workouts, Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp is hosting a charity boot camp to benefit Operation Stand Down. They support local, homeless veterans. Check out their needs list, bring a donation, and let's have some fun!
Men, women, and children of all ages and fitness levels are invited to attend. It will be from 8-9am on July 4th at Weatherly Elementary School at 1307 Cannstatt in Huntsville.
Thanksgiving is almost here! The fall colors, family, and the complete domination of many food stuffs. So much to be thankful for.
Not everyone is as fortunate as I am, so every year I host a boot camp on Thanksgiving morning that benefits a deserving charity. This year we will be raising money and collecting food for the Manna House.
Here are the details:
-November 27th 8:30-9:30am at Weatherly Elementary School (1307 Cannstatt)
-The class will be for all ages and fitness levels
-Bring an exercise mat and some water
The Manna House provides food for people who can not provide food for themselves. They do amazing work there and I am thrilled at the opportunity to help in some small way.
Normally we collect money for the people who attend the boot camp, but I'm doing something different this year. I am donating $10 for every person who comes to the Thanksgiving class, but is not a current boot camp client.
And for every current boot camp client that comes, I am donating a can of food to the Manna House. Feel free to bring a can of food if you like, but I would like for this workout to be my treat. And I also would like to write a big check to the Manna House 🙂
PS-If you know of a media source looking for a good local story, I have a fancy press release you can refer them here:
Random Acts of Awesomeness on Facebook. A place to inspire and get inspired through acts that help others. Things as small as leaving a quarter in the gum ball machine for the next person to putting $75 gift cards at random spots around town. If you would like to join in, you can go to the page here ------>Random Acts of Awesomeness Also, if you are in the Huntsville/Madison area, we are going to do a charity boot camp on December 26 to honor the 26 victims. It will be from 830-930am. It will be fun for the whole family, so all ages and genders are welcome. Just bring an exercise mat and soem water to Weatherly Elementary School at 830am the morning of December 26th. We will be taking donations for the National Children's Advocacy Center (NCAC). The NCAC's mission statement: "The NCAC models, promotes, and delivers excellence in child abuse response and prevention through service, education, and leadership." I thought it would be a great way to honor a child who has passed away, by helping another child live a better life. If you prefer you can donate online below: NCAC Donations Thank you for helping, you are awesome!I just can't get over the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. I considered not writing anything about it, but it has motivated me to do whatever I can to help others. So I will need your help on a few things. I would love if you could send me some ideas on some things I can do to help others. I created a page/movement called
