Support Crew

Spring is Here...Get Outside

Spring is Here! Well, it's been here for a few weeks. But since April is the first full month of Spring, let's celebrate that! It's also the beginning of a new month and a new quarter. All of this tells me that today is the perfect

Excuses Don’t Burn Calories

Best Week Ever

Best Week Ever

Best Week Ever...No.  I'm not talking about the TV show! I'm talking about YOU having the best week.  Mondays are usually the red-headed stepchild of the week.  Since Monday happens every week, we might as well make the best of it.  Keep in mind, prepping for Monday morning doesn't guarantee

Word of the Year: Uncomfortable


Uncomfortable, by definition, has a negative connotation.  So choosing this as my word/theme for 2018 may seem strange.  After all, the theme for the year should be a word that inspires you to take action to reach a goal.  I've been coddling myself way too much lately in all aspects
