Core Strengthening

We all know what this means.  Ab work. 

And, if you have a trainer, you might learn quickly that having a strong core is not just ab work.  It is strengthening all the muscles, including the abdominals so that we are strong in all our movements.  Our entire body benefits and becomes sturdy, durable and protected so it will function optimally throughout the day.

Do you ever find yourself avoiding someone?  You don’t go to this event because you know ‘they’ will be there.  You plan a quick getaway scheme for family dinners just in case that certain someone says that certain thing.  Maybe that difficult someone is a bit closer to you?  A roommate, a co-worker, or —do I dare say it— your significant other??

What Are You Listening For?

Recently a football player said, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about ‘routes.’”  His name is Cam Newton.  I don’t know what team he plays for, or anything else about him. I don’t know his age, where he was raised or what his life experience was.

Let’s at this point just consider the important ones.  Significant other, workmates, friends, business partners, family.  Are you crystal clear about the roles you are each agreeing to?  How do you know?
