We Learn. We Lead. We Succeed

Priority Planning

The following can be found at: Habit 3 Putting First Things First


Habit 1 says, "You're in charge. You're the creator." Being proactive is about choice. Habit 2 is the first, or mental, creation. Beginning with the End in Mind is about vision. Habit 3 is the second creation, the physical creation. This habit is where Habits 1 and 2 come together. It happens day in and day out, moment-by-moment. It deals with many of the questions addressed in the field of time management. But that's not all it's about. Habit 3 is about life management as well--your purpose, values, roles, and priorities. What are "first things?" First things are those things you, personally, find of most worth. If you put first things first, you are organizing and managing time and events according to the personal priorities you established in Habit 2.


Here is a link to a planning tool for those that are interested. Just make a copy and start planning starting with your priorities first! Planning Calendar

Wellness by Katie Wright

Don't forget the 12 Days of Wellness challenges begins today. (Email me if you have any questions about it) Remember if you successfully complete the daily challenge email me and I'll put your name in for the drawing. I've had a few questions about the "1 day no sugar" challenge, and I wanted to clarify that natural sugars are fine, just try not to eat added sugar today (fruits, veggies and whole grains are okay!!)


As we continue to focus on drinking more water, I wanted to share a fact that I found interesting. Not only can drinking more water make you feel full thus in theory you don't eat as much, it also helps with your metabolism and digestion of the food. "Being even 1% dehydrated can cause a significant drop in metabolism." To learn more about the benefits of drinking see: http://www.webmd.com/diet/water-for-weight-loss-diet?page=1


Technically the T25 10 week program is over, but I'm still going to be doing workouts after school M, W, and F. Please let me know if you are at all interested in working out with us. I'm looking in to different programs and need some feedback from those of you wanting to join in!


Finally, if you'd like to get a good cardio workout in, but hate the thought of CARDIO, join me on Friday at 3:00 in the training room for a fun dance cardio session. I found this workout several weeks ago and I wanted to share it with you. Come and stay as long as you want! And don't let the word "dance" scare you away. I'm a TERRIBLE dancer but I love to do it and especially love the calorie burn that comes with it. So don't worry about what you'll look like...it can't be worse than me!!
