Sacramento Museums Fall for Halloween & Harvest Fun in October

2014 Weekly Challenge #36: Make a Date for Fitness!

This week's challenge is all about setting yourself up for success, and making yourself and your fitness a priority.

If you ask an average woman on the street why she doesn't exercise regularly, odds are the answer will be "I don't have time." And the truth is, there isn't a single one of us who has enough time to do everything that needs doing.

All Aboard…From Farm-to-Fork!

All Aboard…From Farm-to-Fork!

Coinciding with the 2nd Annual Farm-to-Fork celebration in the Sacramento region, California State Parks, the California State Railroad Museum Foundation and Stillwater Orchards will showcase the important role the region’s railroads have played in supporting agriculture. On September 27 & 28, 2014 -- during the final weekend of regular season excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad -- a shipment of locally-grown pears donated by Stillwater Orchards will be stacked in crates on the Freight Depot platform in Old Sacramento State Historic Park and offered free to train riders all weekend long (while supplies last).

2014 Weekly Challenge #31: Do Unto YOURSELF

This week is all about YOU. Be kind to YOU. Do nice things for YOU. Remember what is special and what you love about YOU.

This challenge may seem easy, but I'm betting many will have a hard time with it.

Your challenge: Say one nice thing about YOU to yourself daily! Extra bonus points for writing that nice thing down and posting it where you can see it often. 

There is only one YOU in all time. How amazing is that?

Have a great week!
