A big theme I try to cultivate on Fit with Lizzie and my life in general is the importance of gratitude. I absolutely believe every single human being was created to achieve big things in this life. But I don’t believe for a second that we are entitled to easy achievements. We don’t do it alone. Every step along the way there’s someone pulling, pushing or cheering you along. So it’s important to take a look around from time to time and remember the people who are there with you slogging through the ditches and keeping your spirits up.

My birthday is fast approaching, and looking back on the last year of my life, I notice small shifts here and there that make a big difference in the quality of life I enjoy. It’s not always easy, but it’s really worth it. I owe everything to the Anti Rat, who makes what I do technologically possible and cooks dinner for me 99% of the time, and to you Fitties who inspire me here and on Twitter, Facebook and especially my classes.  I can’t imagine living any other way than I do now, and I think you all for making it happen!

To thank you all for your support over the last year, my Friday night Zumba class in Amherst  at the Dance Company NH will be FREE on September 2nd. This is the perfect time to celebrate and Zumba and have a grand Friday night!  Bring a friend! We’ll cram in as many as possible!

For those of you who can’t make it to my class, don’t worry! I have other way to celebrate with you! Have a great weekend!
