Weekly Challenge: Write a positive affirmation about yourself and post it somewhere that you can read it often.

An affirmation is something that you declare to be true, or something you want to be true.  But by declaring it in the present tense somehow you are helping that reality along. There is so much research on the power of our thoughts and the messages that we give ourselves, and how those messages correlate to our happiness.  I am not an expert in that field or in that research, but I am a very strong believer in the power… Read more »


Weekly Challenge: Plan for three days this week that you will get at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise, write it down, and share your plan with someone.

PLAN is the first operative word here.  Making a plan will increase the chances of it actually happening.

It will boost your metabolism… Read more »


Weekly Challenge – Search for a local fitness or exercise class that you can sign up for this week. Try something different or in addition to what you already do!

There are so many different options, and you may find your new passion or something that you are really fantastic at and never knew it!  You can go through a plethora of different venues for your fitness challenge… from the YMCA, to a local gym, or a neighborhood personal trainer, just to name a few.  You don’t have to make a year-long commitment at a gym either, your community most likely offers “a la carte” classes you can take in… Read more »
