Let’s Play Catch Up….

Happy Monday! Let’s play catch up today!

For starters I began an Aunt on Thursday night when my sister had a wonderful baby girl.  They are out in California so it’s rather bittersweet but I plan on getting on there in the coming months for loads of snuggles!  Sara is soo excited to have a baby cousin and we are thankful for Skype and FaceTime!!

Exercise Connection

It’s been awhile since I have given you an update on what’s been happening with the Exercise Connection!  Well, it’s been busy!   So busy! We’ve made tremendous growth in 2014.  We have added more exercises and more importantly we have schools, fitness facilities and day programs who are now using the Visual Exercise System to help teach individuals with special needs how to exercise.

What’s really exciting is that I spent this weekend shooting video for our app!  Our amazing Champions were outstanding this weekend while we filmed them demonstrating over 300 exercises on camera!

What’s even more exciting is that we have been chosen to participate in the FedEx Small business grant contest.  So, here is where I ask your help!  Each day until February 21st, you can go HERE and vote for the Exercise Connection.  These votes matter and will help get us to the top 100.  This grant will help us continue to grow and make a difference in the lives of individuals with autism and special needs.  Please HELP and vote today!  I will also be keeping a sidebar image up so each time you visit my blog, please click and vote!

After Sara and I went with friends to see the Frozen sing-a-along I was able to come home and do some food prep!  Soup, hummus, homemade LaraBars and a cashew “parmesan” cheese were all thrown together in a couple of hours! This week is insanely busy and I know that lunch and dinners are going to be “on the fly.”

This week also off week #2 of the Move Nourish and Believe Challenge

Last weeks focus was “Move.”  This week we focus on “Nourish.”

Week2-Nourish-Final

Since “nourish” is something I do really well, I’m looking forward to the challenges this week!

The winners of the Salba Smart Chia giveaway is #399 Sarah Jordan and #18 Julie Gliessner!  

The winner of the Peanut Butter and Co. giveaway is #159 Heather Julian Corral

Congrats ladies!  Be on the lookout for an email from me!

Tomorrow, I’ll be back with another giveaway!

If we were catching up what would you have to say?

  4. What an awesome idea. I love hearing about stuff like this – people putting in the effort to love others by helping them take care of themselves. I’d love to hear more about the special needs exercise stuff!
