1. Be sure you know what's in the food you're eating.  Check the ingredients and composition of your food. How much fat or sodium are you consuming, and do you recognize all the ingredients? 
Set small goals on the way to a bigger goal.  For example, if you want to lose 50 pounds in one year make it a goal to get into the gym three times per week for the first month.  
3. If you need help, just ask.  There are lots of people who would love to help you create a healthier lifestyle.  Talk to a friend, local trainer, or connect with me to get your questions answered.

5 Easy Ways to Fit Fitness Into Your Life
In the last two months I've addressed some common excuses for not exercising.  To encourage those of you with a busy schedule, I wanted to give you five ways to incorporate fitness into your daily grind!
1. Work out during the commercials of your favorite show.  Do bodyweight or core exercises while you watch TV and you'll workout almost 20 minutes during a one-hour program.
2. Take the Stairs.  Whenever there's an option between stairs or an elevator, choose the stairs. You can burn between 10-15 calories per minute going up the stairs.
3. Park further away from the door.  This can burn up to 20 extra calories a day, or over 5000 calories a year! Burning an extra 5000 calories will help prevent gaining about two pounds per year.
4. Exercise in the car.  While you're driving, try doing ab squeezes, butt clenches, or push your neck back against the headrest. Hold each contraction for 5-15 seconds, but make sure you keep your eyes on the road.  :-)
5. Remember something is always better than nothing. Even on your busiest days, I bet you can find time for 10-15 minutes of exercise, so make it happen because this will help you create a habit and keep your body moving.
Zumba Pink Party

Breast cancer ranks second as a cause of cancer death in women. Join the Zumba Party in Pink™ movement supporting Susan G. Komen for the CureŽ in the fight to end breast cancer.

This cause has always been special to me, but hit closer to home when my Aunt Kellie died from breast cancer the same day I received my Zumba teacher certification in April. I hope you will join me to celebrate her life, and the life of all the others affected by breast cancer.

WHAT: a special 2-hour Zumbathon event raising money to help put an end to breast cancer.  There will be give-aways, testimonials, and about 90 minutes of Zumba led by Jessica Carry and me.
  Sunday, October 17th from 5:15-7:15pm
Auburn Skate Center - 1221 Commerce Dr.
