As a kid I was athletic and I enjoyed playing softball, volleyball and running track; however, as I got older, other activities and responsibilities took the place of my involvement in sports, and I began classes at the YMCA for exercise while my children were in school. When my children got older, I started playing golf with a group of ladies and then a few years later became interested in tennis and joined a team. Tennis has become one of my new passions, but I still play a round of golf every now and then. Outdoor activities such as golf, tennis, and hiking are my preferred forms of exercise while working out in the gym is at the bottom of my list.

All forms of exercise, including walking, are necessary for physical and mental health. It is time to Self Motivate! Plan to get plenty of rest, at least 8 hours, and establishing a routine of going to bed and waking up around the same time everyday. Choose the best time of day for you to work out. I prefer mornings, but I also like to include a 10-minute workout before showering and going to bed at night. This 10 minute session includes stretching, squats, lunges and crunches. I know you can find 10 minutes in your day to add a quick workout routine. Turn on some music and get moving!

Although I consider myself to be athletic, my friends would say I’m definitely a girly girl. If looking stylish while exercising or playing sports defines me as a girly girl than yes I’m guilty. I agree that I like girly things, but I also enjoy hiking in the woods and playing golf and tennis. Besides, there are some really stylish clothes for these activities, and I certainly need the focus to be taken off my ability and put onto my outfits! Ha Ha! Besides the cute clothes, sports have so many other benefits: making you more resilient, more focused and developing confidence through perseverance. At the end of the day it is truly more rewarding to feel good about who you are than to worry about the clothes you are wearing. This mental attitude of acceptance and loving the person you were intended to be frees you from the insecurities and the pressures that society puts on you. I urge you not to compare yourself to others. Comparison leads to jealousy that then leads to discontentment of one’s self. I know who I am and understand my purpose, which gives me hope in all things and the courage to dream big! I hope I have encouraged you today to invest time in your physical and mental health and find your purpose. Be strong, Physically, Mentally and Spiritually!

Hitting a rescue club from the rough around the green is not the norm. However the day we chose to take photos they were doing maintenance on the fairways and had punched the greens. Please excuse the condition of the playing surface and my club selection. It's just for show,I really do know the difference between an iron and driver.

Meet me at the clubhouse.

Meet me at the clubhouse for lunch! My favorite part of playing the game is deciding what I will have for lunch, and this discussion takes place before the first ball is played. Ha Ha!
