Happy New Year!

Happy New YearHappy New Year!  It’s January 2014.

Here we go.  New year, new goals, new resolutions, new life, and new you, right?  Right.  It sounds great so now put it to paper.  Write it down, look at it every day, and make sure you are doing your best to live your life to the fullest.  Do what you love, exercise more, drink more water, eat more fruits and veggies, and smile more.

The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.  ~William Shakespeare, Othello Or A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.  ~Charles Gordy

A smile just makes us feel good.   DO IT!

Moving on, it’s time for the January challenge.  Commit yourself to two strength-training sessions a week.  It doesn’t matter what two.  It can be BodyPump for one, with me for another, or training on your own on the gym floor.  Again, it doesn’t matter, just commit to two times weekly.  You’ll be glad you did.

Here are a few links I adore.  I know you will too:

I’m thinking about starting an online book club.  We get a group of people together; have one person choose a book, and on one day a month, we gather online to discuss it.  The next month a new person chooses a book.  What do you think?  Can it work?  Can we make it work?  Want to try it with me?
