Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Spring Reset!

At Koko FitClub we now have a new parameter to our program. It's called Koko Plus and it's exactly what people who sign up for gym memberships and never go, need. It's scheduled time with a Master FitCoach, such as myself, to help them stay on track and actually make some progress to motivate them to stay and work harder. I do a FitCheck with them on a bio-medical machine that reads their body composition and lean muscle level. We discuss what those numbers mean. Then I choose a specific cardio program I want them to try that is in line with their fitness goals. We monitor and measure their Heart Rate Recovery together, raising their awareness of why they need to do it. Then I go through their entire strength workout with them, tweaking their form and remeasuring exercises that were difficult for them. Before they leave we spend some time on their website discussing the food plan Koko built for them. All in all, Koko Plus has helped a lot of people since it's brief inception this winter. Koko Plus has been a real “spring reset” for a number of our members.

Today while reading Spark People Daily in my email I discovered a wonderful 30 day spring reset that they provided for everyone who wants to get on a new track this spring and bust some old habits. It's a 30 day calendar with an awesome article for each day that will help in many ways. I just finished the one for Day 6 on procrastination. I started reading the articles because it seemed like there would be some great information I can share with my Plus members, along with my new trial members who are just getting started on their fitness journey, and then I thought it would be a great start to my resurrecting this blog if I shared it with you.

And so, as another day goes by, here is the link to Spark People Daily, and…I have written. Happy Spring Reset!
