A Whole New World

May 24, 2020
May 24th, 2020

It's been a while since I've had time to write. The pandemic hasn't given me more time either. In the physical sense not much has changed. I still go to work like I always have as does my husband. What has changed has been our emotional and mental state. The uncertainty of the future. This seems to be the subtle undertone that makes us a little more on edge, a little less motivated to keep the routine that we have always had. We have had to cancel plans, postpone events and a lot of our plans have been cancelled for us. I'm sure this has happened to you as well. How are you handling it? Are you noticing the changes in your thoughts and beliefs? Are you noticing a change in your physical state? Many have noticed a weight gain, a lack of motivation. I am not immune! lol. When the weather was terrible and we were confined to our homes much of the time, motivation and routine were lost. Eating habits changed and we became more sedentary. For me thankfully, having the warriors kept me on my exercise routine. I struggle with eating habits, too much wine and even injuries, but my exercise routine has kept me sane. What are you doing to manage your health? Is it different than it used to be?
Thankfully I have my faith and my family. They give me the courage to move forward with purpose and the reassurance that this will all turn out ok. It will be different, but we will be ok.
If you are looking for a fun way to get some exercise with other real people who are far from perfect but trying everyday, please join us by zoom or Facebook Live.

Take good care,
Loretta



 

Welcome to Summer

July 22, 2015
How are you enjoying this crazy beautiful summer we are having?

The outdoors are there to be enjoyed and it is one of the reasons we take a break during the summer from our traditional workouts. It's also good to give your body a change of workout. For me the summer is about running, hiking, and a little bit of outdoor boot camp. For that reason we are having....Wonderful Wacky Workout Wednesdays!

Every Wednesday of the summer we are meeting to do a different type of workout. This Wednesday we ...
