Monday Challenge: Release Your Inner Tarzan

MONDAY CHALLENGE: 
Release your inner TARZAN
to Conquer Tough Goals


How did you do with last week's Kitchen Clean-Out Challenge?

This week we'll go over an easy way to reach a goal that may seem out of reach.

Ever heard of the Tarzan Method?  It’s pretty cool – and we’re going to use it in our challenge this week!

Here’s how it works...  When Tarzan swings through the jungle--from tree to tree--vine to vine,  he has no predetermined route.  

He just grabs the next available vine.  Is it the straightest or most efficient route? No, but...

HE'S ALWAYS MOVING WITH FORWARD MOMENTUM...
and he ALWAYS GETS WHERE HE'S GOING.

Does this fit EVERY goal? Nope… but sometimes it’s just not realistic to have every single detail planned out.

Now this is a different kind of challenge.

Apply this method to ONE PARTICULAR aspect of your life where you’re struggling…. whether it be work, a personal issue, or making the right meal choices…

When the next opportunity is in front of you… TAKE IT and make that one decision to move you closer towards that goal

Don’t think of everything you need to do in the future to achieve the larger goal- just take it one vine at a time.

Do you accept this challenge?  Leave a comment below and let me know!

    Monday Challenge: Kitchen Clean Out – Tip

    MONDAY CHALLENGE TIP
    Kitchen Clean-Out


    This week's challenge Kitchen Clean-Out was to raid your ENTIRE KITCHEN – getting rid of anything you no longer need, use, or isn’t serving our health & fitness goals. We know...easier said than done. Just as with everything else in life-- if you take one step at a time...before you know it, you'll be there. #MondayChallenge #CleanUp


    Monday Challenge: Kitchen Clean Out

    MONDAY CHALLENGE: Proper Posture

    This week' s challenge is one that you will probably both love  and dread all at the same time!   

    We’re going to raid our ENTIRE KITCHEN –
    getting rid of anything that we no longer
    need, use, or that isn’t serving our health and fitness goals. 


    So let’s get started!   

         1. Start with the pantry.  Go through EVERY shelf and toss anything that’s expired, questionable (hyep, it happens!), or is overly processed.  

         2. Move to the kitchen cabinets and drawers and do the same thing.  

        3.  Put on your “it’s go time” face, and get busy with your refrigerator and freezer!  

    The easiest way to do this is to do each area one at a time, raiding it and then giving each area a little scrub-down as I go.  

    Have a question about how long you should keep foods? Here’s a great chart from REALSIMPLE.   

    Download, print and keep in your kitchen as a handy guide.



    Once you’re done cleaning everything out, take a few minutes to assess what’s left and see what you need to restock in your kitchen!    

    This may not sound fun- but we PROMISE when you’re done, your soul will be happy 🙂   

    Are you in for this week’s challenge?  If you are, post up your “before” pic of one part of your kitchen so we can all hold each other accountable!

    400M RUN

    • Look Ahead. Your eyes should be focused on the ground about 10 to 20 feet ahead of you. Don't stare at your feet. Not only is this proper running form, but it's also a safer way to run because you can see what's coming and avoid falling.
    • Land Midfoot. Don't be a toe runner or a heel-striker. If you land on your toes, your calves will get tight or fatigue quickly and you may develop shin pain. 
    • Keep your feet pointed straight ahead. Make sure your toes are pointed in the direction you want to go. Running with your feet pointed in or out could lead to running injuries. If you don't naturally run that way, it may take practice to keep your feet pointed straight. Try doing it for short distances and then increase the time or distance that you run that way.
    • Keep hands at your waist. Try to keep your hands at waist level, right about where they might lightly brush your hip. Your arms should be bent at a 90-degree angle. Some beginners have a tendency to hold their hands way up by their chest, especially as they get tired.
    • Relax your hands. As you run, keep your arms and hands as relaxed as possible. You can gently cup your hands as if you are holding an egg and you don't want to break it. Don't clench your fists because it can lead to tightness in your arms, shoulders, and neck.
    • Check your posture. Keep your posture straight and erect. Your head should be up, your back straight, and shoulders level. Keep your shoulders under your ears and maintain a neutral pelvis. Make sure you're not leaning forward or back at your waist, which some runners do as they get fatigued. Check your posture once in a while.
    • Relax your shoulders. Your shoulders should be relaxed and square or facing forward, not hunched over. Rounding the shoulders too far forward tends to tighten the chest and restrict breathing. You'll breathe a lot easier if your shoulders are relaxed.
    • Rotate arms from the shoulder.Your arms should swing back and forth from your shoulder joint, not your elbow joint. Think of your arm as a pendulum, swinging back and forth at your shoulder. Drive your elbow backward and then let it swing back toward you. Your hand should be almost grazing your hip as your arm comes back in front of you.
    • Don't Bounce. Try to keep your stride low to the ground and focus on quick stride turnover. Too much up-and-down movement is wasted energy and can be hard on your lower body.
    • Keep Your Arms at Your Side. Avoid side-to-side arm swinging. If your arms cross over your chest, you're more likely to slouch, which means you're not breathing efficiently.

    10 BURPEES with push-up at the bottom

    • Stand straight with your feet shoulder width apart and hands by your sides. This is the start position.
    • In one smooth motion, squat down and place your hands palms down on the floor in front of your feet.
    • Lean forward, so your weight is on your hands, at the same time jumping your legs out behind you until they are fully extended. Your body should form a straight line with your weight supported on your toes and the balls of your feet and your arms fully extended. (In a push up position)
    • Jump your feet out by spreading your legs, so that they are wider than hip width apart, then immediately jump them back together.
    • Complete 1 full push up.
    • Jump your feet forward to just behind your hands.
    • Use an explosive motion to push through your heels and return to the start postion.
    • Repeat.

    MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS

    • Place your hands flat on the floor, shoulder width apart.
    • Extend your torso and legs fully behind you with only your toes and balls of your feet touching the floor.
      Your body should be in a straight line, with your weight supported on your hands and toes only.
    • Starting with either leg, flex your knee and hip at the same time to bring your knee up and under your hip. Your other leg should remain fully extended. This is the start position.
    • Using an explosive movement, reverse the position of your legs, by extending the bent leg back and simultaneously flexing the straight leg until it is in the start position.
    • Continue alternating in this manner for the desire amount of time.

    Teacher Appreciation Day

    Happy Teacher Appreciation Day

    Happy Teacher Appreciation Day

    Teacher Appreciation Day

    You would be hard pressed to find someone that hasn't been effected by a great teacher at some point of their lives.  The ways in which teachers have and do touch our lives is immeasurable.  

    Kathryn Struck,  taught high school for forty years, moved to the college level, and then  began to substitute teach in grade schools, middle schools and high schools in her area.   Kathryn exhibits the true love or teaching and molding the minds of our kids.   

    So on this National Teacher Appreciation Day, we we thought it fitting to share an article below that she wrote titled:

    "What is the importance of teacher in our life?"

    We think she said it all.  Please give the teachers in your life past and present a shout out today and let them know how much you appreciate them!!

    Let us know in the comments below an let us know what teacher impacted your life and how.


    The teacher is ONE of the most important people in a student’s life. Teachers are everywhere—your first teachers were your parents or guardians. Your second teachers were your extended family and your friends.

    When you started formal schooling at around age 5–6, teachers gave you the information, the knowledge that helped you knit together the meaning of your life. Good teachers helped you learn to socialize with others appropriately. A good teacher gave you the ‘aha’ moment—when you could see patterns between and among previously disconnected facts and opinions. The teachers in your school, be it public or private or parochial, helped you advance what you knew or were learning—from experiences you had, to ideas you imagined, and your young answers to life’s greatest mysteries.

    Your family or those who cared for you were doing this, too, but you needed outside reinforcement. And you probably wanted to learn. Not every child wants to go to school, but everyone of them that I have met wants to learn.

    As you aged, your thinking became more and more complex and personal: you needed more than one official teacher to assist your diverse thinking and knowledge.

    Even now, if you are not working with a ‘teacher’, you are still learning from the experience of living, from reading the newspaper, watching programs, reading books—every living moment is a learning moment, and there will always be people who can help you understand what you see and experience. At several points in your adult life you may seek out a ‘teacher’ for a certain area of study—and that teacher will attempt to help you make sense of all that you have become.

    Ultimately, as we age, we seek philosophers and those who can help us achieve balance in life—in my opinion. We look for those who can keep our thinking ‘young’—flexible, and help us roll with the rapid changes in our culture. They help us work out our limitations and our promises. You are a teacher. There are those who need to hear your point of view so they have a broader point of view.

    Life can be very cruel and painful for many people, and this will affect their acceptance of new ideas, and other points of view. They may reject being taught. Even those people can be good teachers for us. They teach us compassion.

    ALL teachers are very important.

    Monday Challenge: Proper Posture

    MONDAY CHALLENGE: Proper Posture

    Your posture has a VERY powerful impact on how you act and feel – how deeply you breathe, your energy levels, and believe it or not….. even your level of confidence!  (and the list goes on.)

    This week, we’re going to hone in on our posture and pay attention to 
    any bad habits we’ve picked up over the years.

    When you were a teenager, did you have a “helpful” adult constantly nagging at you to stand up or sit up straight?  Well as adults, we might need that helpful voice even more!

    Pretty much everything we do (from sitting at the computer, to driving in a car) works AGAINST us when it comes to having good posture - if we’re not VERY careful.

    It’s too easy to lose focus on your posture…. and before you know it, your shoulders start rounding forward, your lower back starts to ache, and your hips start to get tight.  Nothing positive can ever come out of this. 

    When circulation is decreased, you start to experience back and neck pain and lose the ability to stay focused and motivated.  

    You’ll experience higher levels of stress, your mood will be negatively affected, digestion will suffer…. and the list goes on and on.


    Try this: “Good” posture means that you stand with your feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent, pelvis in neutral position – i.e., neither pushing front nor back. Your core should be gently braced, with your chest tall and your shoulders slightly back, chin in neutral position (not jutting your chin forward).

    Below is a quick guide from the National Academy of Sports Medicine:

    How did you do?  It’s trickier than you think! If you have an imbalance, it can be really hard to get everything all lined up the way it is supposed to be – changing one part of the equation can throw off the others. Getting it right can require time, paying ATTENTION to your posture, and patience.

    So, your challenge this week is to work to improve your posture! 

    ----> How about this: Whenever you CHECK THE TIME, do a quick posture check.  What do you think!? 🙂

    Are you in?  Let us know in the comments below!

    Why Intention Is More Important Than You Think

    Simple Steps for Improved Health: Why Intention Is More Important Than You Think

    This week's Simple Step will focus on "Daily Intentions".

    Most of us wake up, and then get quickly sucked up into the business of each day. However the difference in your day is INCREDIBLE when you start each day with one single, specific “intention.”

    Basically, it’s a single underlying goal or “mantra” for the entire day.

    Maybe it’s health-related – “To do whatever I can to support my health goals.” Maybe it’s to be of service to others. Or perhaps you’re more focused on your business or career goals on a given day. (BTW, there can be overlap between all of those things!)

    For this week, try this simple step: setting an intention for your day, and then refocusing yourself on it if you find yourself getting off-track.

    This is important because having an intention goes far beyond checking things off your “to-do list” – it goes towards *why* those things are on your list in the first place.

    You’d be surprised the difference that setting a daily intention can make when it comes to conquering your goals. The less important stuff tends to fall away, saving you time and energy for things that will create the most impact.

    You might notice that every day your intention is a little different … which is OK (and actually a great thing!).

    Once you have your intention, check in every hour or so and bring it to the front of your mind. This will allow you to be fully present with whatever your intention is – which can also actually help reduce stress.

    Something that may help is wearing a bracelet, where every time you look at it, you remind yourself of your intention.

    Something else that’s awesome…., if you’ve got Google Chrome, you definitely need to check out the “Momentum” extension. It not only helps remind you of your daily intention each time you open a new browser window, but it also integrates with a bunch of different productivity apps that help you create a to-do list for the day. :-). Check it out here.

    Are you up for setting an intention every day this week!?

    Let us know in the comments below! And if you’re feeling it, please share what your first intention will be with the rest of us!
