T.G.I.F. Thank God It's Friday! The week is over and it's time to kick back and relax. The weekend is almost here. This is usually the point that most of us destroy what we've worked so hard all week to accomplish. All week we've been good about watching our food and alcohol intake (somewhat), we've got plenty of sleep and actually exercised. The weekend rolls around, and BLAM, all of our hard work goes to hell in a handbasket. How do we gain control of this vicious cycle? If any of ya know, please tell me. I'm just as guilty. You can't beat pizza, wings and beer while watching the football games. I've found if you can't beat'em, then join'em. The key is to try to get a workout of some sort in on Sat. and/or Sun. morning before the big games and life gets in the way. This will keep you on track and help with those Monday morning doldrums we all experience after a rough weekend. And try setting achievable goals throughout the year to keep ya motivated. I'm currently teaching an Outdoor Fitness class on Sat. and running with a group on Sundays that is training for a Jan. marathon. Plus we have the Death Valley marathon coming up in Dec. http://www.envirosports.com/events/displayevent.php?eventid=1611 These and other events keep me motivated and on track. Set health and fitness goals and go for it. Have fun. You can do it! Like Baz Luhrman said, "You are not as fat as you think you are and do not read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly!" Work Hard and Play Harder!
