MMB – Fall Fitness Challenge 2019 is a Wrap!

Hi Everyone,

Thankfully, I have power at my house and I’m able to log in and write my blog.  This was a hard weekend to take in emotionally knowing there are thousands of people fleeing their homes and evacuating the Sonoma area.  We need to uplift the firefighters, EMT’s, and thousands of people evacuating in prayer for their safety and protection. 

Would you say this prayer with me this morning?  “Lord, we ask a prayer of protection over the thousands of firefighters who are putting their lives in harms way for the protection of others.  We would ask that you calm the winds and allow the firefighters to get a hold on the fire for containment.  Provide safe passages and provisions for those who are scared and are fleeing their homes.  For those who are filled with fear and uncertainty, give them a calm and a peace and to know that you are in control of all things.  Be the light into the world where there is darkness right now.  Amen.”   Thanks guys!!

Now, onto fitness matters 🙂

This past Saturday was the last Fall Fitness Challenge and for those of you who came out on a consistent basis – you rocked it!  For this past Saturday, there was another military style obstacle course, along with a variety of running drills and resistance and core stations.  Erin Campbell won this Challenge as well as the Halloween BOO Contest!  Way to go Erin!

For the weight lost Challenge, you guys did amazingly well!  Every single person who weighed in at the beginning and the end, lost pounds and inches.  For some it was only a pound or two, for others, it was over ten pounds! 

Congratulations to MingMay Pang who lost 16 pounds and 3% points in body fat!  She also lost 2.5 inches off her waist and 3.5 inches off her hips!  MingMay wins a $50 class card!  Awesome job MingMay!

Melissa Judge came in 2nd place with 11.5 pounds of weight loss!  She also lost close to 3% in body fat, along with 2 inches off her waist and 3.5 inches off her hips! 

MingMay Pang, Melissa Judge, and Lisa Thach!  Fitness buddies making it happen!

4)  Regular Boot Camp format begins Saturday.  Same tough drills without the frills! LOL! See you at 7:30am on Saturday!

As a reminder, Halloween is this week.  Ask yourself how do you want to feel?  All that extra sugar is NOT worth it friends!  Let’s not feel like crap walking into the holidays.  Choose your calories wisely and start downing probiotic foods that will boost your immune system in preparation for the cold and flu season.  Taking the flu shot will not guarantee that you won’t get the flu.  Be kind to your body and rev up on your greens intake, fresh fruits and veggies, homemade foods and limit sugar, salt, refined carbs, and bad fats.  You can do this!  Together we can accomplish great things!

See you in class soon!
