"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain


 Try this Commercial Break !

If you’re having a difficult time carving out a specific time to go to the gym try to work the following into your daily routine: lunge from room to room to tone everything from the waist south (you can also build character by ignoring the giggles from the rest of the family!), and during commercials in your favourite TV show, do a few push-ups for the upper body and try some planks while you’re on the floor anyway – they’re a great exercise to strengthen the core and teach your muscles how to work together.


As a new season approaches, nature whispers to you in all her majesty that it’s time for growth and renewal. It’s time to dig into that treasure chest of goals you laid out for yourself in January and get back on the road to success.

Remember all the decisions you made about your health, fitness, family life, work, school and focus on making them a reality. Too often we conjure up lists of “things we would like to achieve” and then we allow them to fall by the wayside, only to look back later and say,
I could have done it.”

The beauty of life is that you have the opportunity everyday that God grants you breath, to recommit to your goals and dreams. The season of Spring signals an emergence of renewal and rebirth – let it have the same meaning and impact in your life. Use each day wisely; review those goals you set earlier this year; focus on making them a reality and don’t ever quit!

Change for yourself

 Any goals that you set should come from a sincere desire to change for yourself. Don't decide to change to please anyone other than yourself All resolutions should be perceived as positive changes that will help you reach optimal health and well-being. Negative feelings are the most frequent cause of relapse in behaviour-change programs and resolutions that feel like punishment can cause negative feelings. . .

And remember, resolutions are an opportunity for you to look forward in a positive way rather than to punish yourself for past behaviours.
