2014 Weekly Challenge #2 - Drink your Water!

2014 Weekly Challenge #2 - Drink your Water!

Drinking lots of a water is one of the easiest way to improve your health and change your body. We recommend that you drink 80 to 100 ounces every single day.

Other than the fact that water tastes refreshing and clean, there are so many other benefits of drinking 80 ounces or more of water every day. Here are just a few…

** Being hydrated reduces/eliminates headaches

** Being hydrated fights fatigue/give you energy

**Drinking water is an appetite suppressant (most of the time that you think you are hungry, you are actually thirsty)

2014 Weekly Challenge #1:  An Attitude of Gratitude

Happy New Year!

The year is spread out in front of you like a book of empty pages, ready to be filled.  We at Mama Bootcamp want to help you make this your very best year ever by helping you find your MOJO in every way you can. We hope you will join us by participating in our weekly challenges, getting to Bootcamp and working toward all your goals. 

Challenge #1: An Attitude of Gratitude
Start off the year by actively being thankful for all the good things in your life. Remembering to be thankful for the good stuff - big and small - can help you get your "attitude on right." Whatever you focus on gets bigger and more important. So instead of focusing on the less positive (something you are angry about, negative feelings about a job, etc.) and making those things more important, take a minute to feel thankful for the positives in your life.

Fly Girl in Training: On flying completely solo for the first time

Fly Girl in Training: On flying completely solo for the first time

By Shawna Malvini Redden

With the late afternoon sun at my back, I calmly taxied to the run-up area to complete my pre-flight check list. I double (and then triple) inspected my instruments, interior, mini-flight plan, frequencies and charts. And with a deep, confident breath, called the tower. Within minutes, I was heading West, climbing to 1,500 feet, off to practice maneuvers and landings, all by myself. The flight flowed pleasantly and I mostly had the sky to myself what with it being a Monday afternoon. In an hour, I was home again, pushing the airplane back into the hangar, posting the inevitable “I’m flying alone!” selfie to Facebook and calling Mr. T to gush.

How I wish this was the description of my very first unsupervised solo flight…

Kings TV feature on inspirational 8th grade cancer patient Tyler Hallsey wins award

Often times the discussion on who our heroes are is limited to police, firefighters and our soldiers — and rightfully so — but the story of Arizona eighth grader Tyler Hallsey is one that might make each of the aforementioned tough guys take notice.

Hallsey was diagnosed with a brain tumor on February 8.  Pontine Glioma was the diagnosis, something that just 100-150 children get diagnosed with every year.

Shortly after being diagnosed, Tyler sat with his father Chris and they talked about the road ahead and what they should do.  “Whatever it takes,” Tyler said, and that has been the rallying cry for friends, family and supporters as they collectively try to tackle the tumor head on.

Tyler has undergone painful steroid and chemotherapy treatment since then to try to kill off the tumor.  On May 3, the tumor remained but there were two areas of dead cells in the tumor that give them hope.

As you can imagine, it takes a tough little man to... Read More
