Runs for GREAT Causes.
|Katie and I|
If I'm going to pay $25 to run a race, why wouldn't I choose a race where money gets donated to an awesome non-profit like Little Flowers? This is a virtual race, hosted by Katie for the second year, which means you can run/walk/crawl it wherever no matter where you live!

Encouraging Class Instructors
I'm talking fitness class instructors. There's a couple of big muscly men instructors at our gym that "negatively" encourage us all by telling us things like:
"Picture the girl who stole your boyfriend away and knock her out!"
"Kick him in the face!"
It makes sense, since they are kickboxing instructors, but I usually just laugh instead of getting more intense.
But there's one woman whose "positive" encouragement I love so much that I take every spin, step, weight class she offers when I can fit it into my schedule. She's not plain old encouraging...she challenges us to push ourselves every time by saying things like:
"Why did you come here today? To lose weight? Get healthy? Then MOVE!"
"You've got two legs, a healthy body, a willing spirit...now ride!"
"Go a little longer/faster/harder than yesterday!"
"Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you can do it!"
and my personal favorite...
"Some of us have 5 kids and we're here working it out...no excuses!" (as she smiles at me)
Anyway, it's the reason I love group fitness, when you find someone that can encourage and challenge you to work out at your peak level, you leave feeling so good.
Pedicures with a Friend.
The perfect way to reward your hard workouts, have a girl's night out, and smile every time you look down.
This feels so light and cool on summer skin. I love it! I even put it on my kids sometimes after their shower (just don't tell the boys in their classes!)
Now I need help coming up with a new favorite TV show to watch. We have Netflix, and have gotten caught up on everything we know of. Anything you all are into that we may not have heard about?
