Workin’ on my Workout!

I have a sweet little baby boy who got 4 shots at his 1 year checkup on Monday, which has prompted him to wake up at 5:30 the past two mornings for some pain reliever and a bottle. So, I needed not to set my alarm clock to get up an exercise! Yesterday, I did my 30 minute hatha yoga DVD and am a little sore today. I love yoga, but don’t get to do it nearly as much as I would like. Yoga at my pal Yvette’s is the best!

Yesterday, when I got home from work, my 3 year old greeted me at the door and said “Look mommy! This box came from CVS!” To him, any store is CVS. Anyway, the box was from Power Systems and it was full of resistance bands I had ordered for my Thrive workouts! This morning, I busted out the medium resistance band this morning and tested it in my workout. It was hard! I backed off to the light band and that made it better, especially for the lateral raises. I think I’m going to get a few extra light bands for my beginners, too.

It’s funny, because each band included an instruction sheet on how to use the bands. The photos are in black and white of this woman doing different exercises with the bands. You would think it’s a cost savings measure to use black ink, but I think it’s because she’s using the orange (lightest) bands and they don’t want you to know! How else could she do some of those moves?! 🙂

Please be sure to plan on joining me on Monday, August 31 for my next Wellness Seminar and Exercise Session. It’s free and child care will be provided at Galax PH Church from 5:30-7:00 pm. It’s gonna be fun, informative, and fit!

FREE Seminar & Exercise Session – July 13

Did you miss the seminar on June 15? Well, make plans to attend this session on Monday, July 13 at 5:30 at the Carter Pines Picnic Shelter in Hillsville, VA. The shelter is located on the left as you drive into Carroll Wellness Center.

First, I’ll be sharing Biblical advice on how God wants us to live happy, healthy lives as well as practical tips for good nutrition, health, and exercise. Then, about 6 pm we’ll do a 30 minute exercise session set to contemporary Christian music. Bring a friend and come enjoy some uplifting fellowship!

At this point, I don’t have anyone lined up for childcare, but if you’re a CWC member, you can check to see if they will let you leave the kiddos in the supervised play area since you’ll be on the hill.

Hope to see you there!

Monday’s Seminar + A Walk/Jog/Run Group?

Monday’s seminar was such a blessing! I had 15 lovely ladies show up to listen to me rattle about wellness the way God intends. Then, we sweated out a 30 minute exercise session and enjoyed some healthy snacks and fellowship. I meant to take pictures and get a video, but totally forgot in all the excitement. I’m so thankful to each lady and am looking forward to presenting again soon as soon as I can find another location & book it!

Also, another lady I met recently asked about starting a running club, and at first I cringed. Running is not my strength. When I run, it’s more like a jog, and it’s not that frequent that I jog! When I do, I love it, but I would rather do other things. 🙂 Anyway, I prayed and thought about it and want to offer a walk/jog/run club for ALL fitness levels… This will be a FREE thing on Thursdays around noon. We’ll meet in Galax, VA (New River Trail, Galax Rec Department, etc.), share a prayer/devotional, then hit the trail for 30 minutes or so. I’m open to ideas. Our first meeting will be Thursday, June 25 at the Galax Rec Center/Felt’s Park. Please let me know in advance if you plan to attend so we’ll be looking for you. More details to come early next week!
