During my career I have been grateful to have, and still have, a number of mentors shape me into the person I am today. Whether they have been in the corporate part of my life or fitness portion. They have all rounded me out into a person I feel that I can be proud of. I believe that it is well past time for me to share a great big thank you to these women for shaping me over this past decade, plus. Now as I write this, I know I will not do these ladies the justice that they deserve, but allow me to introduce you to my Mentor Tree.
I have really enjoyed the team at Peak Physical Therapy. They are different from my other PT experiences. They take the time to spend with you and make sure that your form is correct and positioning is all in line. It is all about TEAM. Each person is there to help everyone out.
Confession: I had three servings of dressing... Covered in gravy. Ten minutes later, I thought I was going to be sick. No, this wasn't the best decision, but this past June I was thinking about this meal. I was saddened because I just knew that while everyone was feasting on their traditional Thanksgiving feast, I would be stuck with a plate of green beans, corn and maybe a salad.
What does your FEAR look like? Is it a particular challenge: 5K, half-marathon, triathlon? Maybe you have a passion in your life but you are holding yourself back, STOP! Sign up for a new course, ignite your passion or hobby into a lucrative side business.
You asked for it, and here it is! An ABSolutely awesome ABtastic ABS challenge. There were squats requested and abs requested for June. I found one challenge that I thought, "Oh, yeah! That will get the abs nice and tight!" However, I knew that with my schedule it would be a while before I could post a proper form video and I didn't want my loves getting hurt.
As most of you have heard by now, "The Greatest" passed away this weekend. He was not a perfect man, but he was a strong athlete that overcame a great deal in his life. I was familiar with the heart of one of his daughter's as well, who is a social worker. I think anyone that has done any research on this man will say that this man was no stranger to passion. To be a champion, you must have passion.
This week's schedule is dedicated to my first-born child. My baby girl is turning the big 1-8 on Thursday.
There are certain words we do not use in our home. I also bring some of these rules into my classroom. For example, we use the word "challenging" in lieu of "hard". The word "can't" can only be used if it is followed by "yet." However, there is a "F" word that we do not use, and I feel passionately about this. I despise the word "fat." Whether someone is calling themselves or another person the "f" word, it just sends a wave of emotions through my body that I cannot fully explain.
