You Can Do Anything at Your Age

Last weekend, Robert and I celebrated our very first wedding anniversary.  We decided to do what abnormal fitness people do – go

torture ourselves on “The Incline.”  The Incline is a trek up an old cable car route in Manitou Springs, CO, where the tracks have been removed but the ties are still there.  You basically stair climb for one mile.  It was pretty challenging – especially when it started to rain, then pour!

We made it to the top, but others weren’t so lucky.  The experience was great…and even better because Robert started it with coffee in hand (only him, sheesh).

A Degree Worth Ditching

I’m very concerned – about you.  I have discovered that way too many people (especially women) specialize in something they shouldn’t.

Let’s take a little test to see if you’re a culprit, too.

Please answer these questions:

  1. In my daily schedule, have I blocked out time just for me?
  2. If my day is extremely busy, do I still make sure I don’t cut out exercise?
  3. At all costs, do I work hard to take care of myself - versus always putting everyone else first?

If you answered NO to just one – or perhaps all – of these questions…
