Week 3 - Session 1 of 2012 update! Class starts at 6:30 am tomorrow!

Hi Power Fitness PDX'ers-

I hope you are enjoying the first two weeks of 2012 Power Fitness PDX! Due to the multiple requests for tomorrow, Monday January 16th's Martin Luther King. Jr Day class- will start at 6:30 am instead of 5:45 am. Jen M., thank you for working with your TEAM who all have the day off.  You get the bonus Bettie award for doing so! Class meets at Crown Beach and is traveling bands.  If you have any questions please email me. Be ready for fun!

How are your goals going? Have you mapped out each week and the few health, fitness, balance, family and friend goals you want to accomplish? If not why not start this week. They can be as simple as:

Go for bike ride with Fred on Wednesday at 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
Run around the track for 30 minutes while at TJ's baseball practice
Read fun book for 15 minutes before bed
Turn off computer at 9:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Buy 2 new vegetables at the store and try one new recipe to use them

If you are specific, your goals will happen.  It is when you are grandiose and feel that the big accomplishments must be attained.  Take a step back and applaud yourselves for the little steps along the way.  For me, it has been a challenge to step back and gradually get the green light for what I can and can't do from the MD.  Each day after I do my physical therapy, ice both knees at least 3x, get 4 work to -do list items done, enjoy 1:1 time with both girls and am able to train for at least 1-2 hours feel good.  To use this unexpected time of stepping back to reset my own athletic and business foundations is key.  It is key for you too- hence this month focusing on foundations in Power Fitness PDX. Get back to the root of what you are eating, how you spend your time exercising, where you spend your time each week and emphasize what nurtures YOU.  Focus on what sparks your interest, what gets you inspired, what challenges you and what encourages you to be your best self yet. 

I look forward to seeing you soon, even though I know Jack is having a blast teaching you right now.  Fun news on that account- there will be a few more class options and locations in upcoming months. You requests are being answered.

Week of 1/16-1/20   1/16-CB- Traveling Bands  1/18-WP- Plyos & light weights   1/20- CB- Traveling Bands

Cheers and make to take time and Challenge the Power of YOU!
