Changing Lives To Achieve True Freedom

"Sweatworking" Together

I read an article in the New York Times this morning about people who are in client services who find that all of the "schmoozing can take a physical toll. All those drinks, dinners and parties mean little time to hit the gym." Some of them are starting to say, "why not mix work with working out?"

The article, by Courtney Rubin, goes on to say that, “'You can manage to get a dinner on the calendar with a guy maybe once a quarter, but you can meet him once a week for a workout,' Mike Wassong a trader at Euro Brokers said. Golf, he added, 'takes too much time.' Attribute it to shrinking expense budgets or expanding waistlines, but combining networking and working out (call it “sweatworking”) is a hit among health-conscious professionals seeking a wholesome new way to bond with clients and colleagues."

Beachbody SuperGymIt just occurred to me that by working out in the SuperGym and getting together in groups on Facebook, what we are really doing is "sweatworking" together as health conscious inviduals finding a whole new way to connect and grow both personally and in terms of our health.

I want to make this a special time of the year for all of us as Team Beachbody members by joining together in a united cause to make a difference in our own lives. I know that this is a very busy time of year right now, but after all of the holidays, it is a time to reflect and connect and prepare for the New Year.

I am very active in the SuperGym and on Facebook and use both to spread the message of the physical and financial freedom that I would like all of us to have in the years to come.Team Freedom Facebook Group Why not join me before the New Year in a SuperGym workout. Join me in one or both of my Facebook groups. Every day, we are sharing information, resources and tools to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. Together we are better and working out in the SuperGym and connecting on Facebook are ways that we can "sweatwork" together.

The Flight or Fight Response - Stress And Weight Gain

The Flight or Fight Response - Stress And Weight GainMillions of years ago, our cavemen ancestors needed to react swiftly to any perceived threat. This “flight or fight” response was designed to provide quick energy for 5-10 minutes, enabling our forefathers and mothers to either do battle or run. If you have been experiencing stress from doing battle in the mall or deciding to run from your oh so long to-do-list, this article may be just what you need. Continued...

She Does, He Doesn't

You've made a commitment that will change your life. Your spouse has not. You've sworn off junk food and you workout six days a week. Your unsupportive husband sits on the couch with the remote, taunting you with bonbons and insisting reruns of "Baywatch" should have priority over your Power Half Hour. Here's some good advice on what to do... Continued

A Social Network Christmas

This weekend, I saw a video that I had seen last year entitled, "A Social Network Christmas". If you are a Christian, it is both poignant and humorous given all of the events leading up to the birth of Jesus. I just thought that I would share it with you.
