Is Your Workout As Important as Your Livelihood

You wouldn’t workout like that if it wasn’t your job!  Yes, someone stated this very declaration to me not too long ago. I didn’t try to argue but then Andrea left me this comment…

Can you do a blog post on how to be self-motivated and confident when working out alone both in and outside of the gym. Please? And thank you.

You know I can’t resist a prompt, right!

One Word for 2014: BALANCE

I switched up my previously scheduled post for today because the one word resolution posts I kept reading resonated with me so strongly that I had to participate. I first read Carli’s post, then Kim’s post, which lead me over to my girl Michelle’s link up!

Those of you who are bloggers and have already posted are probably quite aware of my one word by now as I keep mentioning it in the comments.
One Word for 2014 Balance

balance - a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.

Kids in the Kitchen & Exercise Dance Party

For Act-Fit Friday today, I want to share with you an event from a couple of weekends ago.

MOYO Kids in the Kitchen & Exercise Dance Party

In the League here, I really love that each year we are assigned one MAIN responsibility.  This year, I was the chair of the MOYO party.

The Junior League of Macon, Inc., in partnership with the Motivating Youth Foundation, was responsible for coordinating two events to reward academic achievement and build self-esteem for young ladies in local elementary schools.

Naturally as the chair, I choose the theme of “Kids in the Kitchen (A National League Initiative) & Exercise Dance Party”!

Full-time Work, Church, and Full-time Mom

What were your thoughts when reading the title? Could you identify?  This is another Student Spotlight feature!

Claudia Noriega is a busy busy lady, but she takes time out to come to BODYCOMBAT express & BODYPUMP every Wednesday morning!   She always has a solemn look on her face in the most intense parts of the workout! It tickles me to pieces.

That look is how she feels about life, get it done and keep it moving!

I asked her why she typed that phrase (the title).  She stated “that’s all I have time to do, boop, boop, and boop!

As a matter of fact, this was the last thing she typed…

I’ll finish later cause I have to go to work

When I got to class, I told her, she had already answered all the questions.  That’s the fast paced life of a single hard working mother! She was so busy, didn’t even realize she had completed the task!
