“I’m thankful for the opportunity to help others keep, and improve, their lifestyles as long as possible, and am privileged to do so.”
For my Giving Thanks Workout I’d like to talk about balance.
It’s something we all have to various degrees, and something we want to keep for as long as we possibly can. To this end, we need to think of the best way to make this happen. To gain optimal balance we need strength and posture (static and dynamic), to be trained with balance. Without all three the others will not be at their best. The lives we lead can affect how we move in both shortening and weakening muscles. This can lead to misalignment and could potentially cause a few problems. We aspire to stay upright, and move with fluidity. Think Mary Poppins.
“I’m thankful for the family I have and the fullness they bring to my life. Without them I wouldn’t be who I am today and I wouldn’t be able to do the things I do. It’s a common thing to be thankful for and I think that just goes to show how important it is.”
What am I thankful for?
“At a time of such negative events happening in the world, I am thankful for so much but at the top of my list is family; both blood related and chosen. They are the laughter when I need to smile and the tears I shed when I need to cry. They provide the best support and I couldn’t go a day without any of them. So I thank you all…near and far.”
During the holidays, our schedules get more overloaded and the first thing to drop is our health. We eat more and workout less. This workout is the best alternative because all you need is 11 minutes and your done. It also gives a great example of how I train, Hard, Effective, but Fun! Hope you enjoy. Happy holidays….

Here is my Holiday “No time BUT I have 11 minutes” Workout
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, and with this delicious and versatile compote you’ll have no problem meeting your daily goal. Apples are in season locally, so for peak flavor and nutritional punch you can head out for a fall adventure to pick your own or stock up at your local farmer’s market. This compote is high in fiber (don’t peel the apples!) and has no added sugar, so it’s a perfect treat for the whole family. Make a big batch to enjoy all week atop plain yogurt, cottage cheese or oatmeal, alone (like chunky applesauce), or for an special indulgence, try it with a little scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
