Hail Mary

What do Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson have in common? That’s right, with the football game on the line and time running out, they have each perfected the Hail Mary. They can throw a bomb half the length of the field, into the end zone for the game winning touchdown.

What does this have to do with you and why do you care? Maybe you don’t even like football and could give two hoots about the Superbowl. Fear not. My usage of the term “The Hail Mary” is to be used thusly; if it’s the end of the day and you haven’t had a chance to workout because of work obligations, travel, family events whatever, you still can throw a Hail Mary.

You should answer the question what could be your Hail Mary routine and keep it in your mind and write it out so you know what to do in a pinch.

Always, Sometimes, Never

By Susan Howard

This phrase, “Always, Sometimes, Never” reminds me of an Algebra test I didn’t pass or an old drinking game that got me into trouble at a college house party.  Today I am referring to none of the above.  (Answer D)

You Can Always Get What You Want

By Susan Howard

Although the fitness industry would like you to believe you have to suffer and deprive yourself to look good, I totally disagree.

Can you eat a box of doughnuts and watch reruns of Friends everyday and get fit?  No.

Do you want to feel bloated and tired all day?  No.

What I want to talk about today is balance.

It’s a journey, the quest to self care, but please don’t let my industry with it’s bro dudes and size zero chicks tell you what feels good to your body.  The path to good health can be a bit rough, but it should also be fun.

When I was a kid I remember struggling to keep weight on, and my pants up for that matter.  Why?  It’s because I was too busy having fun riding my bike, playing chase, and climbing trees to eat.  I was booked up.

Yeah, you could say my metabolism was faster and blah blah, which is true, but I think ..read more
