MMB – Benefits of Lemon Water

Hi Everyone,

I hope your summer is going well and you are feeling great out there!  How is your summer going?  Are you enjoying the warm and bright days?  I hope you are finding time to stay active and are eating many summer fruits and vegetables!  If you’ve been off track lately, no worries friend!  Today is a great today to start up again and take care of your mind and body.  If it’s been a couple of weeks or longer since your last work out, ease in do what you can in 20-30 minutes.  Then, do it again in another day or so until you have your habit back of working out 3-5 times a week.  There is no beating yourself up allowed!  There is only acknowledging where you are and making a decision to move forward and not focus on the past.  Cool?

MMB – Happy 4th!

Hi Everyone,

Summer is in full swing!  I hope you are all feeling great out there and have been moving and eating clean!  I know many of you are on vacation this time of the year, so remember to find ways to stay active and continue with your resistance and core training.  Get creative and inspire the entire family to move too.  Maybe have a push-up contest with mom or dad?  Do a long jump competition on the lawn and measure who can jump the farthest.  If you are around the pool, play pool basketball and see who can dunk the most goals!  If you are all out for a walk or jog, do plank holds on benches or tricep dips.  Create a timed obstacle course on the playground and take turns going through it.  Whatever you do, don’t be a summer slug!  LOL!

MMB – 30 Min. Circuit Work Out

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and feeling great out there!  I know many of you are on vacation right now, so I hope you are enjoying your time with family and doing some fun stuff!  Hopefully, you guys are finding time to move and are staying on track the best you can!  If you are doing some cool stuff out there like hiking or biking, text me a picture and I can post on the blog!

MMB – Summer entitlement?

Good morning everyone,

Oh man, is it heating up out there!  How are you all doing with this heat?  Are you guys drinking enough water out there?  Hydration, hydration, hydration my friends!  Try coconut water if you’ve been out there sweating a lot!  Great job to everyone who made it out to classes this past week!  I know that summertime brings on new schedules, vacations, and a different kind of juggle than the rest of the year, so do your best to keep up your work outs and consistency. 

MMB – What’s a Move In?

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and feeling great out there!  Did you have the chance to work out over the weekend?  Did anyone do the Boot Camp I forwarded to you?  Did you do something else? Hike?  Bike?  Run?  Let me know because I’d love to hear how you guys were moving! 

MMB – Fork in the Road Moments

Good morning everyone,

I bet some of you are shaking your head in disbelief right now that you’ve made it through the past week and weekend!  What a crazy time of the year with end of the year school activities and events, graduations, hosting family, and trying to keep your head on straight!  Well, pat yourself on the back and take a deep breath because you made it!  I’m not a mind reader, but I venture to guess that many of you had to temporarily suspend your usual routines of fitness, nutrition, and wellness in the past few weeks.  Am I right?  That’s totally o.k. and it’s part of the ebb and flow of life and the milestone events that make our lives meaningful.  However, the party is over now and it’s time to get back to the business of living well and healthy!

MMB – Deprivation = Failure

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!  Excellent effort by everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week.  Thanks so much for your flexibility these over these past couple of weeks as I moved classes around for baseball playoffs.  This week classes will go back to the normal schedule of Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday’s at Valley Bible Church.

MMB – Wanna Live Longer and Healthier?

Good Morning everyone,

Did you know summer started this weekend?  Well, maybe not according to the calendar, but it sure felt like August out there!  Excellent effort to everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week! Some of you attended back to back classes in the mid-week on Wednesday and Thursday nights!  Now that’s dedication!

This past Saturday marked the end of the Spring Fitness Challenge and I wanted to thank everyone for working so hard and putting in the effort.  I will post the results within the next day or two so you can find out how well you did for the fitness tests and weight loss.  Stay tuned for results!

MMB – One Day to Wellness

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and had a fabulous weekend celebrating all of those special moms out there!  Excellent work by everyone who was able to make it out to class this past week.  I know it was an altered schedule with classes on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, so thanks for all of your flexibility! 

MMB – Goal Check In

Good morning everyone,

I hope your Monday is off to a great start so far!  It’s hard to believe we are already in the month of May!  How are you feeling out there?  Are you feeling good in your skin?  Are you feeling energized and positive?  I know this can be a super busy time of year for people as end of the school year activities and summer planning kick into gear.  Make sure you are still carving out time for your work outs, good nutrition, and self care.  If you are a bit off track right now and are feeling overwhelmed, take a look at your calendar and revisit your goals and see what has goon awry.  What has squeezed into your calendar that has replaced the time you were committing to your health?  Are you saying “yes” to too many things when you should be saying “no” a little more often?  If so, don’t fret, but take a deep breath and start prioritizing the things that make you centered and more balanced.
