*L’Chaim* *Holiday Survival Guide* * Healthy Blueberry Blintz*

Dear Friends,

It’s officially in full swing, the wedding planning. The date is not until next summer, but Erin is only home for a short winter break, and then won’t be home again until the big day. A small wedding, but still a million details and just as many emotions. Many of you are sharing great wedding videos and ideas with us. Pinterest is my achilles heal to getting any work done. It’s fun. The video I shared on Facebook, I’m sharing again here. I love celebrations; big ones, little ones, I love them all. Health and wellness is my priority because I want to live a long life, with energy and good health, so that I can feel great while I celebrate often with family and friends. Although I am not Jewish, I have deep respect and love for those who are. L’Chaim is Hebrew for “To Life.” It is recognizing that life is indeed good and precious and should always be celebrated and savored. L’Chaim!

The Santa Cruz Turkey Trot is next Saturday, November 23rd. Don’t forget to sign-up and let me know if you will be there!!



With the holiday season upon us I know how hard it is to resist all the celebrative eating and drinking (and the weight gain that comes with it) so I put together for you an awesome Holiday Survival Program to get you through the holidays. Our 4-week program starts Monday, December 10th. This week I will be sending A LOT of additional information and sign-up information.

Join us for LG Boot Camp this week. Ali and I will be teaching at 6AM. Rachel and I will be teaching at 9AM. Start this week, and you can still pay for the 5-weeks for just $15 dollars a class. A great workout or a full refund is always my guarantee!
