Naps.... Naps, carbs and trash TV. That is mostly what my staycation consisted. Don't get me wrong, we had some great family bonding time, but there was a great deal of naps, carbs and trash TV. I know the hubby fully embraced staycation mode when he actually crawled into our bed to take a nap instead of just taking a 20 minute cat nap on the couch. This was on day two of staycation.
It's that time! Staycation have officially started. Guess what? I didn't make it! I was at my husband's company event that is held every year for family and I began talking about work! Face - to - palm. FAIL! One of the employees at the venue mentioned that it looked as I worked out and blah, blah, blah we began talking shop. His wife is a group exercise director for a popular gym chain in the South Dallas area. After a few minutes, I found myself looking around for hubby as I realized I just broke our number one staycation rule. Oopsie!
WOOOO HOOOO!!!! What an awesome day it was today! It felt so great to be back with my Sunday peeps today! We were thirty-one strong today in Tabata.

I remembered what I tell my students, "Change comes outside of your comfort zone." If I am not able to live up to that, how do I expect my students to do the same? It wasn't easy. Finding the right way to learn the way to teach this format was the hardest part. Thankfully, I found a great mentor in my friend Alisa Lofton. She helped me find the right way to capture a pattern for me.
Do you look at exercise as a punishment or a reward? When I am asked how to start an exercise regimen, I always tell people to start with a program that people will enjoy... So exercise doesn't feel like "exercise."
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.
Dr. Seuss discusses life as a "Great Balancing Act" in this book that was first published a year prior to his death at the age of eight-seven. As such, this "Great Balancing Act", as we know as life, is full of ups and downs and is presented in this books. We are faced with challenges and Dr. Seuss encourages us to find the determination within ourselves to face those challenges and come out successful.
