It’s Time for New Fitness Goals It’s time for new Mid Year Fitness Goals! Where are you at this point in the year?A. I’m kicking ass & crushing my goals!B. I’m in maintenance mode & holding steady.C. I’ve lost my mojo & don’t know where to find it.D. I’m not into setting goals & that healthy lifestyle stuff blows! I’m Holding Steady in Maintenance Mode Honestly, I’ve been holding steady in B, Maintenance Mode, for some time now. I know how great I feel when I’m in A, so, I’m jumping back in by setting new Mid Year Fitness Goals for myself. It’s never too late (or early) to set new goals. It’s always right now!Okay, so about you… are you in B, C, or D? Be honest! If you are in anything other than A, ask yourself why? What do you gain by being in anything other than A? What are you missing out on by not being in A? What the Number on the Scale is Not Let’s be clear about something, the number on the freakin scale does not represent fitness, health, or wellness! It does not! Repeat after me… “My weight does not represent my blood pressure, my cholesterol, my glucose level, my stamina, my sex drive, my energy, my strength, my thinking, my mood, or my worth!” Your weight is a measurement that can f*ck with your whole sense of being! I’m not saying that you should throw your scale away, and maybe it might serve you better if you did. 🤷🏼‍♀️  You get to make that decision for yourself. Use Different Numbers Those that set goals based on a combination of measurements will experience better health and improved quality of life. If you were to ask most people what matters most to them, their…

Fortunate to Live in America I know first hand how fortunate I am to live in America. I have traveled around the world and I lived in a country that did not have the freedom nor the opportunities that we have in this country. I have seen families living in the level of poverty most only see on the Feed the Children commercials – the ones that people turn off because they can’t take it. For four years I drove through communities that look just like that. Children rummaging through trash heaps in search of scraps of food or anything valuable they might be able to sell or trade. I saw the elderly withering away and suffering in pain because medical care wasn’t available. Not that it wasn’t affordable, it simply wasn’t available. I worked medical missions in remote villages where people lined up for hours to have medical and dental procedures performed, and we did not provide sedation or pain management. They were all grateful for showing kindness and compassion. I was part of a team that provided security for the American medical personnel and protected the medical supplies. The communist army was always nearby ready to take whatever they wanted by whatever means the deemed necessary. Perspective Comes From Experience My perspective comes from experience. I have traveled to communist countries where you can only drive your car on your designated days. That is if you are lucky enough to have a car because the government doesn’t allow just anyone that luxury. The same goes for owning a home or pursuing a career of their choice. For those that have these luxuries, they get to pay dearly for them. Oh, and their income, well, that really belongs to the government. Sure, most everything is taken care of for…

Being a Courageous Parent Being a courageous parent is always essential, and right now, our kids and our grandkids need us to set the example of, “this is what courage looks like.” Being a courageous parent requires faith, conviction, and determination. Do we have all of those qualities all of the time, probably not? Sometimes we get to act as if we do even when we don’t want to. A courageous parent shows up for their child when there’s a monster in the closet. That same courageous parent is the one who keeps a level head in front of the kiddos even when the electricity is about to get shut off. You are the parent, and you get to figure it out just like how you figured out how to get rid of the closet monsters, with a bigger-than-life attitude and the confidence that you got it all under control. Step Up and Figure it Out During my single mom days, I got to step up and figure it out. When I look back on it, I realize that I probably wasn’t as scared as I could have been at the time because my focus was on making everything work for my daughter and me. The solutions were much more important than the problems or obstacles. My creative problem-solving skills back then still make me proud today. Understanding the value of memories and experiences far outweighed that of any material objects at that point. The local pawn shop helped me create quite a few memories with my daughter from the material objects that I sold to them during that time. Gratefully! What is Most Important I have always felt that the most important thing I could do is to be a good role model and provider for my daughter. There’s…
