Be Smart – Be Active & Give Thanks

Be Smart – Be Active & Give Thanks

Fellowshipping with family and friends at Thanksgiving could put on the pounds.  Don’t let that happen.  Being a conscious eater doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself. Cutting back just 10% this year doesn’t mean you won’t feel satisfied at dinner. Doing something active doesn’t mean they will start without you.  You can do it all!  Count your blessings…Take time out for yourself and make some changes for the better.

Here are some survival tips from my latest magazine article in Decisive Magazine.

 

Gotta Love Them

Gotta Love Them

I just love my clients.  I love seeing them train, change, reaching their goals and becoming energized strong sexy beings.  Meet Sharon…definitely one of my favorites.  She’s a die hard water and snow skier.  Go Sharon!

Welcome to Wendy Ida’s Blog

Welcome to my new adventures with blogging. I’m excited to talk and share more about the magic of how fitness can empower and change your life.  You can keep up with what’s going on with me and by the same token I want to learn more about you.

I have received a lot of love from messages through email, facebook, myspace, U-tube, Newsletters etc. from fans, friends and family and others. I appreciate them all.

This blog is my way to channel all of that energy to one area.  That way it gives us all focus, purpose and assistance.  Also, I am less likely to feel crazy.

I look forward to more of your comments, suggestions and any other input that can help, encourage and empower others.  We are in this together. You me and the powers that be. Right?

Do you feel empowered?

Wendy
