It’s Finally Fall!


Happy Tuesday Team!

I hope that you all had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend. How many of you tried making some of all of your food from scratch? Was it a success? We’d love to hear about it.

Now that fall is officially here, I want to focus on your present and future goals. Anything you did or didn’t get done this summer is in the past. There’s no sense in bumming around about goals you didn’t accomplish or not doing things you wish that you did.

If I’ve learned anything from life, it’s that we can’t live in the past because we can’t change what’s already been done. All we have in RIGHT NOW.

I think we should start out with small and achievable goals for this week. Will you commit to going for a walk or run at least 3 times this week for a minimum of 30 minutes? If you don’t have an hour and a half to spare for yourself, there’s something really funky going on in your schedule and you DESERVE to have some time to yourself to take care of your mind and body.

So if not having enough time is one of your excuses (and I say excuses, because we can always make time – we just have to change our priorities), then I challenge you to take a look at your day and see where you’re not making the most of your time. Maybe you have a habit of sitting on the couch after dinner and watching TV. Maybe you get an hour for lunch but instead you stay at your desk and you work through your lunch hour. You are not required to work through lunch if your employer gives you an hour. Use that hour to go for a walk around your building or to eat your lunch outside. Get away from your desk for a while! You’ll be surprised at how much more productive you will be if you take a break and move your body a little bit.

As we transition into cooler weather, what are some questions that you have? It can be anything concerning training, nutrition, and/or gear. I am here to act as a resource to you and to answer any questions you have.

Just remember, there is no such thing as a good excuse. So if you’re not getting the results that you want because you’re not taking action and sticking to a plan – you only have yourself to blame. That’s the cold hard truth.

Keep on keepin’ strong,

Coach Colleen
