Hello there. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m excited to be exploring this new blog platform. I must say, where computers are concerned,  I sometimes feel like the world is passing me by. Online media is still a bit overwhelming to me, which is one reason why I’ve been reluctant to get “connected.” I’m sure some of you can relate. But, as you can see, I’m taking steps to learn new things, and I’m having fun in the process! Who knows, maybe I’ll eventually set up a facebook page too. My own mom even has one now!  Go Mom! I guess you could call me the caboose of the computer train, in some regards.   🙂

My intention with this Youthful Hearts Blog is to share relevant body/mind/heart/spirit fitness info, in a variety of forms, that I feel will help us to feel good, have fun and be well (to put it shortly). In my own life, I’m dedicated to doing more than just survive. I want to thrive! And I bet you do too. This new blog has me excited for three main reasons:  One, I will now (hopefully) have a convenient online way to create more support for my class members. Two, I will gradually be able to reach a wider community that includes those who are not able to attend my Marin County local classes-yay! And, three, I feel it is likely going to be a creative and enjoyable experience. I’m all for that!

If you are interested in staying connected with me online, then I invite you to subscribe to my new Youthful Hearts Email Newsletter. It’s free. Just fill out the Sign-Up form at the top right of this page. I WILL NOT be sharing your email address with anyone, so your privacy is safe with me. And if you decide later that you no longer want to receive emails from me, you may unsubscribe at anytime. Whenever I make new blog posts, or have any other news to share, I will be letting you know by way of this newsletter.

Lastly, if anything that I or someone else posts here on this blog ever speaks to you, I hope that you’ll feel inspired to share a few words with us by leaving a reply below. You can rest assured that your email address will not be made visible to others, just whatever name you type in.  Your comments do not have to be long or well-versed. Just be yourself, and come from your heart. Often we can relate to one another through our successes and our challenges; you just never know who might benefit from what you have to say. I’m hopeful that my blog will become a source of valuable support for you, me and others as we continue on our wellness journeys.

All the best,
Jeanette Logan

P.S. While you’re browsing my new website (and I hope that you will),  if any technical issues arise for you, I would really appreciate you letting me know. I want to get any and all bugs worked out asap. Also, I would love to receive your feedback about my new website. What do you think? Let me know by leaving a comment below.  (Your email address will remain unpublished to other readers.) Thank you!

    This is great information that is being shared here, giving you a round of applause

    I just did your 5 min. video standing. It was a good little exercise to get me going this late afternoon. It began easily, but when you did the arms the same while the legs were doing 2 on this side and then 2 on that side. It was a challenge even after 11 or more years with you. I can visualise Bob and I doing these short exercises together: he sitting, me standing. And, we’ll be sure to laugh at ourselves!

      Hi Beverly, Thanks for stopping by and giving my first online video a tryout. I especially appreciate you sharing the details of what you experienced while doing it. With a little practice here and there, you’ll master that exercise…just like you do the ones in class! I hope that you two do laugh at yourselves…that’ll be just as beneficial as the exercise itself. Happy 2011!

    Hi Jeanette:
    What a great job you’ve done with your blog and web site. It’s got a great selection of photos, videos etc…
    I’ll try to get myself back to your program in the new year.
    Best regards, and happy holiday season. Pru xoxoxo

    • Jeanette says:

      I would just LOVE to see you in class again in the new year. We miss you! Thanks for you positive feedback about my website. Take care of yourself, and happy holidays to you too!

    Hi Jeanette, Great website! I was amazed that I managed to get on it. Maybe my computer skills are getting better with age.

    • Jeanette says:

      Hi there Joan,
      Great to hear from you. Thanks for the feedback about my site and for signing up for my email newsletter. Congratulations for your success on the computer! I love the comment you made about ‘getting better with age’. Yes you are!!! And you’re encouraging others who may be a bit timid about using the computer. See you in class!

  6. Karen Shepherd says:

    Jeanette, your new website is AWESOME. It’s so easy to navigate, so informative, and so uplifting. And I love the feature that allows me to enlarge the text size.

    However, it’s the downloadable gift of your guided meditation that’s OVER THE TOP. I listened to your meditation late at night. Then I just happened to sit in silence with my eyes closed for another half hour. I realized I was experiencing a residual effect of a wave of relaxation and peace enveloping me – and, my mind-chatter had ceased. I also noticed that my heart rate slowed. Wooooo. Anyone can speak those words . . . however, I can feel your lovely spirit behind them as you guide me to relaxation, peace, and gratitude.

    I urge your ‘fan club’ to experience this gift from your heart as a lovely closure to their busy day.

    Well done, Jeanette. WELL DONE.

      Hi Karen,
      I was just about to shut down my computer for the night when I got your comment on my blog. Oh my gosh. My head is going to get big, and I won’t be able to fit through doors anymore. Thank you for that wonderful heartfelt support and feedback. I really really appreciate you recommending my meditation to others. And I’m stoked to know that it has benefited you. I hope that it will prove to be a gift that keeps on giving. It’s going to be great to see you again soon, after so long. I’m not the only one who has been missing you! Take care.

    Hi Jeanette,

    You ARE doing so well with all this “techie” stuff. 😉 Honestly, I’m so very impressed and I can see all your lovely class members are very proud of you! Well done for all your hard work on this, everything looks great and you’re managing it all very well. It was such a pleasure to work on it with you!

    Cheers!

    Laura

    • Jeanette says:

      Hey there Laura! Thanks for the pat on the back. This site would not exist without you, so THANK YOU for all of your help. You have been an angel to work with and I plan to do more with you in the future. You ROCK!

  8. Alice says:

    Jeanette, please include me on your newsletter list. (I have web tv and it doesn’t display the sign up form.) Your blog is great! I think you DO have tech skills! Give my best regards to Benjie your cat.

    • Jeanette says:

      Hi Alice,
      Thanks for the positive feedback. I’ve had lots of help with all of the stuff that I don’t know how to do! I went ahead and entered your name and email into my website newsletter sign-up form today, since you said that your web tv will not display it properly. You will need to click the confirmation link that is being sent to you in an email. Let me know how it goes. Benji says hi back to you, by the way. 🙂

      • Alice says:

        Thank You, Thank You- for whatever you did to make the newsletter form sign me up. No matter what you say I think you are now a “techie” pro.

        Thankfully I have a guardian angel who is smoothing the way for me when I think I can’t do something.

  9. Kaja says:

    Hello! I just would like to give a huge thumbs up for the awesome info you have here on this website. I will be coming back to your blog for more soon.

  10. Marilyn says:

    Hi Jeanette: I’ve really enjoyed traveling around your website. Lots of fun to see the photos and hear the comments from your students! You really put a lot of time and effort into helping keep us ‘young at hearts’ in good shape, both physically and mentally. I look forward to your classes every Tuesday and Thursday…. and that’s a change! I used to have to push myself out the door to exercise. Thanks for all you do and keep up the good work!

    P.S. The Guided Mediation is a plus, too! Thanks!

    • Jeanette says:

      Hey there Marilyn,
      Yay! You left a comment on my new site! I really appreciate it. (Since blogging is new to me I get excited when someone leaves a reply!)
      Your words are heartwarming for sure. I’m so happy to be a part of something healthy in your life that you look forward to each week. That’s a win-win! And I”m glad to hear that you like the guided meditation gift. I hope that it adds some calming support to your week, perhaps on days when we don’t have class. See you soon.

  11. Maura says:

    Wooooooo ya baby! This is a great website! You have worked long and hard on getting this up and running and you have definitely knocked it out of the ball park (ha ha)!! Access was easy and going through the site was fun. Great maiden voyage!

    • Jeanette says:

      Hey hey hey Maura! Thank you for chiming in. I love your exuberance! I’m so happy to hear that you had easy access and smooth browsing of my new website. I appreciate your encouragement and support very much. By the way, after being stuck in gridlock traffic for over an hour this morning, and having to cancel class :(, what a treat it was to see you and your friends from class coming back from a hike. Kudos to you all for exercising anyway, when you could have chosen to just go home. You all MADE MY DAY!

  12. Lorri says:

    Jeanette, This is such a positive support blog. I LOVE IT!! U R such an inspirational person and friend. Thank U!!

    • Jeanette says:

      Hi Lorri, How nice to hear from you! Thank you for the great comment. YOU, my dear, are a true inspiration. Also, thanks for your earlier feedback via email about it not being clear where to leave comments on my blog. By tomorrow it will be much clearer for people, since I’m going to have this Reply Form left open for all to see, without requiring people to click on it. See you in class Thursday!

  13. Carol says:

    Wow! I’m impressed and so appreciative that you have taken the time and energy to put this together and include our organization and so many of our members in spreading the word on the wonders you have done with them in the exercise world! We love you and glad you are part of the active older adult generation!

    • Jeanette says:

      Hi Carol. Your words have touched me very much. It has been my pleasure to be a part of the Goldenaires for so many years. Thank you for your support. Looking forward to more good times!

    "It's been 8 years since retirement and joining Jeanette's classes. I am fitter than when I started, and definitely younger. I have graduated to aerobics and this past year I outdistanced younger companions while traveling in Spain."
