Celebrating Energy Bar habits has been so much

fun. The seventh sale has been both literally

and, more importantly, figuratively My Treat.

Thank you.

I’m having a blast with the dehydrator. Look for

new menu items such as fruit wraps and

chips as well as the inclusion of my own dried

fruits, vegetables, and herbs in the recipes

you’re already familiar with.

As always, I appreciate your business and value

your patronage. Enjoy these dog days of summer

and don’t be afraid to start any new habits.

Kind Regards,

> WHY WE LOVE SADIE… I'll tell you

why. Sadie competed this past weekend, (700

women), in the Toronto Olympic Distance

Triathlon (1.5K Swim, 40K Bike, and 10K run).

When the swim segment started, she was

immediately kicked in the face by another

swimmer, cracking the lens on one side of her

goggles. This forced her to swim with one eye

shut. The other eye had to contend with water

people traffic and seaweed, which had to be

constantly brushed aside for visibility.

At the end of the swim, competitors were given

a boost by tri-staffers to makeshift stairs that

had been positioned to get them out of the water.

Her staffer lost balance, tossed her to one side,

which resulted in a large cut to the underside of

one of her feet. There was a call for a medic

followed by "you're done for the day" Sadie

growled and barked out...."WRAP IT UP"!!!

She must have scared them because they did

(though with a poor wrapping job), and she

started her ride. Shortly thereafter she had a flat.

Seven minutes later, with the flat repaired, she

> JoAnn’s Tip of The Month:

If you're just starting to play tennis, there are

many technical aspects to the game that you

need to learn. However, there are 2 key things to

keep in mind at the start: timing and spacing.

Timing the ball coming towards you and meeting

it comfortably out in front of your body is crucial

in order to control the placement of the shot.

Having the proper space between yourself and

the impact point without reaching too far or

getting jammed with a ball too close to you will

allow you to swing freely. After you have mastered

these 2 key skills, you can move on to

was back in the saddle. Every pedal stroke on her

injured food caused tremendous pain, and the blood

was flowing freely. She eventually became a one legged

rider and struggled on bravely for virtually the entire 40k.

With the ride behind her, she had the obstacle of a 10k

run in front of her. After a few strides she realized something

important ....."this wasn't going to be easy".

For a fleeting moment, the thought of packing it in

entered her head....but only for a moment. She reflected

on a Lance Armstrong quote... "pain is temporary,

quitting lasts forever". She put on her game face,

sucked it up as only great athletes are able to do, and

finished the race, hobbling all the way.

I don't do this story justice...her rendition was crazy funny.

But at the end of the day, I understood more clearly than

I did before just what it was about her that I loved.

I pass this on to make it perfectly clear to everyone that

Sadie is so much more than just another pretty face!

HRC would like to welcome Sadie to the personal training
