Where in the world is Cindy (aka Well-Trained Mama)? She hasn’t been as active on her Facebook page. She’s not posting workout selfies on Instagram all that often. Has she gained 50 pounds and gone into hiding?? More »
“The harder you work, the luckier you get.” – Gary Player
Have you ever found a four-leaf clover? A friend once gave me one she had found, and I saved it for a long time flattened inside a book. Maybe one day I’ll remember which book it’s in! I became curious about the significance of the four-leaf clover while creating this new goal tracker, so I looked it up on Wikipedia: “The four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the common three-leaf clover. According to tradition, such clovers bring good luck: If consumed, a genie appears. This genie grants you three wishes. These three wishes must be used in one year. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.” Well, I didn’t eat my clover so I guess I missed out! 😉

What is it about stickers and a goal tracker that helps so much staying on track with our fitness goals? I don’t know, but it works!! I hope my goal trackers help you stay on track, too. Before I share the tracker, let me first tell you about a slow cooker recipe swap I’m hosting this week on Facebook. I’ve invited friends who are part of my Strong in ’16 group. I would love for you to join me in that group, where we can encourage one another in our health and fitness goals. Just click here and request to join! And if you want to get in on the recipe swap going on this week, comment on this post or send me a message.
Now, on to the November goal tracker!! More »
“Mama, why aren’t they wearing clothes?”
That question caught me by surprise. It was asked by one of my kids as I was working out. The women in that DVD workout were wearing sports bras and little booty shorts; the men were wearing shorts, with some (actually most) shirtless.
“Well,” I answered, “that’s just how they work out.”
It got me thinking, though.
When I go to the gym, when I teach a class, when I workout at home or in public, how do I dress? Not like the people in that particular program. I might be wearing spandex but I dress much more modestly.
