The Psychology of Resolutions Lots of you are probably reluctant to, once more, make a New Year’s Resolution to improve your fitness.

It’s New Year’s Eve. It’s the day we think of out with the old and in with the new. It’s the day that we think about all the things we are going to get right in the new year.

I know I’ve written about SMART goals here before.  This is an area I feel passionately about and as we look at the last days of 2014 and ahead to 2015, I feel it’s important to look at SMART goals again. SMART Goals Revisited To review, when you set goals for yourself, you must look at these … [Read more…]

I think we should take the quote Make Yourself Proud from Peter W. Smith to heart. It’s the last week of 2014 and I have heard a lot of people complaining about things they have done wrong this year, including inside my own head, but I think we should be proud of our accomplishments, no matter their … [Read more…]

    Christmas was just hours ago (or maybe you haven’t had your celebration of choice, yet) but it’s the end of the year and a lot of us like to use this time to think about the progress made over the year and the progress we want to make in the upcoming year. I know that this final … [Read more…]

My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night.  It brings me to tears every single time we sing it at church.  Today, I explained why it brings me to tears…because it makes me think of me as their mother and they as my children…..and more.  It is simply beautiful What does that have to do with the … [Read more…]

I know I’m guilty of this and I’d be willing to bet many of you have also used this word to describe your running or a race.  You go to the expo and someone asks which race you are running.  You see their bib and it’s for a distance further than yours.  If you’ve ever done a Disney race and you … [Read more…]

I don’t know about you, but it’s that time of the holiday rush where I don’t have an extra minute in the day. I keep wishing there was some way to get an extra day or two in before Christmas. I am swamped to put it mildly. But…as I have worked my little fingers to the bone trying to finish … [Read more…]

He has the “crud” that is going around! He was tested for both flu viruses and for strep! I’m thankful that he doesn’t … [Read more…]
