Nothing to do with Real Estate per se but everything to do with living life to your fullest and creating a healthy atmosphere for others around you, check out 10 Things I Want My Daughter to Know About Working Out | wellfesto.  Some of you may know about my passion for fitness but you may not know that I also have 2 wonderful daughters who I hope see me as a good role model for life-long healthy habits.  My running and working out is not only empowering but has created strong bonds with my “fitness family” that I have come to treasure.  As we wrap up 2013, this is a good time to evaluate our own healthy behaviors – is it time for a change? Wishing everyone a very happy holiday season!
