How’s it going so far in 2019? Hopefully this email finds you warm, cozy and well! Have you been hibernating this winter break or outside enjoying the oddly sunny ☀️😎 (and yet brisk😬) outdoors? I’ve been doing a bit of both, and as a result I’m feeling really rejuvenated. I’m recharged and eager to get back to our classes together‼️💃🤸‍♀️💪 Let’s get goin’! Woo-hoo! As we say in Texas, “I MISS YA’LL!” 🤠

Dance Around the World

Posted by: Jeanette |

August 24, 2013


I LOVE to dance. How about you? Dance is one of my favorite art forms, and it's my #1 preferred way to exercise. Just put on some great music and start moving. Anyone can do it-- no choreographed steps required! Dance is a universal language and one of the best ways we can express ourselves. It's a great stress reliever and burns calories while we're having fun. Ever wonder what people around the world look like when they dance? Well Matt Harding did, and he traveled to the far corners of the globe to find out and dance with many different people. This awesome video follows his moves.

The following was shared with me by Nick Ortner, producer of the documentary film called "The Tapping Solution." This video has a POWERFUL message. It's simple and EFFECTIVE. "It's amazing how many people know what is best for their lives, but they aren't willing to do something about it, or they just don't know what they can do."

Which Comes First: Happiness or Success?

Which come first for you: happiness or success? Many people think, "if I lose weight, or have more money, or find the right mate or am more successful at work, then I'll be happy."  But it turns out that this happiness formula is backwards.  Research actually shows that every single relationship, business, educational and health outcome improves when we become more positive first.

This is the best case of non-retirement that I've ever seen. Ever feel too old or too tired? Well, then watch this video. Go out and about in the City of Mississauga, Canada with Mayor Hazel McCallion. This amazing 88 year old major has done wonders for her city and has been in office for over 30 years! And get this...the city of Mississauga is DEBT FREE, with money in reserve! She must be doing SOMETHING right. Plus, she can still play hockey! I love this woman--she's the "poster senior" for aging well.  ♥

Boomer Spotlight: Lorri Murke Demonstrates Strength Through Adversity

I want to shine the spotlight on a very special lady who I am lucky enough to have in my Fit and Fun Class. Her name is Lorri Murke and she is such an inspiration to me and many other women, as you will discover when you read her story. I'm guessing that many of you have, like me, complained about your hair at one time or another. (I've had my share of what I felt were "bad hair days!") Well, Lorri doesn't have ANY hair, and she is one of the most beautiful women I've ever met. Lorri has raised the bar for me on what it means to accept yourself and get on with living your life! Her courage and resilience are admirable to say the least, and what a joy she is to be around! I'm so blessed to have her radiance shine on me weekly.  I asked her to write a bit of her story so that I could share it with all of you. Here's what she wrote:

When Exercise Is Fun, We WANT To Do It! Here’s Proof.

This post includes a video of a set of stairs, adjacent to a moving escalator next to it .... both of which lead to the same spot on the floor of the upper level. At first no one took the stairs, almost 97% of the people took the escalator. Okay. I think that could be a normal expected result.

Then a group of engineers got together, and decided they wanted to change the percentage around.

Watch this cool video to notice what these scientists did. Clever. And now they have reversed the percentages, as a whopping 66% more people take the stairs, than ride the escalator.  This study of exercise psychology is amazing!

True commitment sets in motion a momentum of support that extends beyond what we can accomplish on our own. When we pursue something with a deep devotion, then the challenges that we may face along the way don't stop us in our tracks for very long-if at all. Solutions to our problems can sometimes show up in the most unexpected ways.

Most people know that exercise is good for their health. After all, there are a multitude of reasons why we should be exercising, such as lowering the risk for and managing serious chronic conditions, attaining/maintaining a healthy weight, building muscle and bone strength and decreasing stress, to name a few. However, even with so many compelling reasons to exercise many people just can't get themselves to do it on a regular basis.

Not Exercising is Risky Behavior

Posted by: Jeanette |

August 18, 2010 |

INACTIVITY is a major reason that some older adults lose their ability to do things on their own. In addition, lack of exercise combined with poor dietary habits is currently one of the largest underlying causes of death in the U.S. This is sad, but it doesn't have to be that way! Just because we're aging doesn't mean that we have to experience a diminished quality of life.   When we make exercise a regular lifetime habit, we not only improve our daily capabilities, but we also FEEL better. Even moderate levels of physical activity can bring measurable improvements.
