With all the negativity swirling around in the news these days, it is so refreshing to spend time around my spectacular niece, Alex! She is visiting for a few weeks before beginning her junior year at George Washington University. She is smart, funny, compassionate and gorgeous to boot!
She is very interested in being healthy! It is awesome! She enjoys working out and making good food choices! She is very interested in learning and has a real thirst to succeed with health! While she is here, she is doing workouts with me....it is sooooo fun!
In less than a month she is moving into a campus apartment with roommates and she wants to learn what to cook for herself that will be nutritious, healthy and delicious. I turned her on to hungrygirl.com. Hungry Girl just had a blog about her top 10 list of things to have on hand for fast easy healthy dinner preparations.
I introduced Alex to Ezekiel english muffins for breakfast - fast and delicious! She was surprised that it tasted so good!
Yesterday, she joined me at the gym for an hour of cardio and an hour with Kathi. This morning we go back for another hour with Kathi in the form of a muscle max class. She is hanging in with me and the workouts, even though it is more than she usually does. She is a trooper.
Lest you think it is all carrots and straining muscles, we are also managing to get in jacuzzi's, movies, shopping, spa treatments and the beach!
So, with since our next generation includes Alex, and other great kids her age (Justin, Matthew, etc.!) our future is bright indeed. ENJOY your weekend. I know we will!!!
