We all have ups and downs when it comes to our own health and fitness... Even trainers do... but after 30 years in the fitness business and being dedicated to continuing education I have a couple of things I would like to share and say! Hopefully I can be of service... no matter how fat headed you may think I am. ;-)

I took a little time off from writing, working out and calorie counting partly intentional and partly unintentional. But I am reminded of Leo Tolstoy's Essay Three Questions:
When is the best time to do each thing?
Who are the most important people to work with?
What is the most important thing to do at all times?
What I realize when I ask myself why I didn't write for the last three weeks, got only a few workouts in and really didn't keep track of the food I was eating, was that the best time to be doing what I was doing was when I was doing it. The most important person to be with was who I was with. And the most important thing to be doing at all times was what I was doing, when I was doing it.
I am sure if you think about it a little or perhaps take the time to read Tolstoy's Three Questions that to sit around and think that you have wasted any of your time is just not so. I choose to take the time for other things in my life the last three weeks because they were just more important than putting words into this blog, working out or counting calories.
What did I do? I spent time with family and friends. I took time off work to be with someone I love and get away from the craziness of city life. I read books, to tell you the truth, that have put a new perspective to my life.
