"Change is the essence of life.  Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become."

Happy Easter and/or belated Passover to everyone!

I have some exciting stuff in the works for the blog...but I need more followers!!  If you read the emails regularly please become a follower of the blog, you'll be glad you did :)

One quick thought and one quick idea for you to kick off a new week...


Change is good, for many reasons but In Fitness and in Health change is something your body needs to keep the results try something this week you've a) never done before or b) haven't done in a while.

*run/walk/sprint...faster than usual or up a steeper hill than usual
*a new exercise class like spin, kickboxing, or even a cardio dance class
*a new machine at the gym
*an exercise you've been afraid to do because you think you'll look silly
*jumping rope (for some of you I bet it's been since elementary school!)
*push ups until failure 
*take your plank from the ground onto a bosu ball, put medicine balls under your hands (and if your core is really tough try putting your feet on one too), or put your feet on a stability ball

Check with your employer/HR department and/or health insurance provider to see if your benefits offer any discounts for gym usage.  This is a new trend that could benefit you in two ways:
1.  you'll save money
2. you'll be motivated to keep your attendance to the gym up because it's helping you save money :)

Lastly, I'll be working in the coming weeks on making the blog more interactive, adding more links, pictures and other such useful tools for you all so please, comment, ask questions, offer feedback, let me know what you'd be excited to see featured on the blog...and you shall receive!

In Fitness and in Health,
