Well, if it’s Tuesday it must be BIGGEST LOSER DAY! This show continues to excite me week after week and season after season. This year, viewers probably witnessed the saddest story ever on the show, when learning of the horrific tragedy contestant Abby Rike has endured. No matter how hard I try, I cannot wrap my mind around losing one’s whole family, all they love, in one instant. When Abby’s team had to eliminate a player last week, she asked to be sent home as she felt the others needed to be there more than her. I think I cried more last week when she left than I have in years. The great news is, now down close to 100 pounds she has discovered a great will to live and allow herself to love, once again. Despite the absurd intensity of the workouts, the insanity of the trainers and the way too often crying by the contestants, this show continues to inspire me personally and professionally, each and every week. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for the remaining contestants tonight. Of course it’s important for home viewers to remember that this IS a realilty show and results are not typical! Losing those incredible numbers at home would be unrealistic and most likely unhealthy, but the knowledge and inspiration gained from this show could easily help motivate anyone to be an at home biggest loser.
If you are local and looking to lose some weight, or get more physically fit come out and try my classes tonight. Check out my schedule of classes and come try one or both at Tamarac Fitness Center. Email me for location info which is not yet posted. If the class is new for you, be my guest by telling the front desk staff that you read about my classes on my website and would like to try a complimentary one. Though I truly love everything I teach, my 7pm Pilates/yoga “stretch and stress reduction” class is my personal favorite. It will treat your body and mind to a little vacation, while still getting in a workout!
Though it’s way premature to announce, I am very excited that the SilverSneaker program WILL be coming to Tamarac Fitness Center in January. I will be teaching a SilverSneakers1 class at this location on Tuesday mornings at 9:30am. This new year will find Av Med and Physician’s Choice joining Humana and Care Plus in offering the SilverSneakers benefit to their medicare members. Additionally, many more health clubs will be offering the program at their facilities, so stay tuned for updates.

You may notice that you can now comment on my blogs by using the comment link above or beneath each individual blog.

Additionally I hope to have a photo page up soon, displaying some of my wonderfully dedicated students and clients.
In closing I would like to share this thought. Already this morning my home air conditioner is not working, the check engine light is on in my car and the grandkitty has already gotten loose (she’s back), but I am not complaining. Every single day life challenges us, some days more than others. The world and the economy in particular, have not doubt been very stressful in the past year or so, but the choice to be happy is just that, A CHOICE. I hope that today you will choose happiness.
