    Almost New Year!! I hope you’re enjoying a fabulous and fit
    holiday season like I am.

    know how hard it is to stay on track when cupcakes, chocolates and
    all manner of homemade desserts are calling your name – and
    carb-laden goodies are everywhere you turn (I am, after all, the
    admitted “eggnog …or any nog…freak”). But I also know how
    good it feels when the scale reads lower than it did the week or even
    the day before. Beats any carb high I’ve ever experienced!

    of experiences, I’m really excited to share my latest — a brand
    new Commit
    to Get Fit

    website, filled with all sorts of
    helpful info on health and wellness, managing your weight and living
    a more fit, happy, productive life.

    think you’ll like my fave fitness
    and lifestyle resources
    . I
    I’m sharing pure gold on the medical
    resources page
    too — the
    health and medical gods and goddesses who have helped me become the
    fit, happy, healthy woman I am today. And there’s all sorts of
    other good-to-know stuff, including info on my new workshops and
    seminars launching in 2013.

    I’d love to hear
    what you think, so please send me feedback after you’ve visited the

    don’t forget to sign up for my new weekly motivational newsletter
    while you’re there. Gonna be filled with tips and trends and
    how-to-stay-on-track uber-motivational tidbits. I promise to keep it
    fast and fun, so you have more time to get out there and do
    more daily cardio
    (you knew I was
    going to say that)!

    So, come get your new health and
    fitness program rolling for once and for all!

    wish you and your loved ones nothing but good things in the coming
    New Year – and a very healthy, happy holiday and look forward to
    sharing a fit and fabulous 2013 with you.


    Our favorite on line venue, Elgin’s BocaJump Blog is being put to
    bed for a little while. Going forward, I’m going to be blogging on
    my own blog site till further notice, so please join us at
    You can go to my new website
    to sign up and get your own free download of Healthy Eating Survival
    Tips. It’s more comprehensive than any list I’ve ever sent you
    before, so go there, print it out and share it with all your family
    and friends.

    I want to share this Christmas Oldie but Goodie with you. May it
    bring a smile to your face like it does to mine.
    T’was the Night
    Before the Big Weigh-In
    Laura Dion-Jones
    T’was the night
    before the new Commit To Get Fit weigh-in and all through the
    house, not a creature was stirring nor eating a low carb mouse.
    The scale was placed on the floor
    right in front of the fridge, in hopes that the Carb Fairy wouldn’t
    notice anyone’s ‘idge. 
              Micky in her kerchief, and Mike in his
    cap, were all settled in with popcorn, Pepsi, their kids and some
             When what to my watering eyes should
    appear, none other than Laura, the Motivation Maven, and her Commit
    To Get Fit pals in all their fine feathered gear.
             “Get up off that sofa, you lazy
    little sloths, you’re lookin’ like Tony Soprano’s boys hangin’
    ‘round the “Stugots.”
              Strap on them walking shoes, Micky,
    Mikey and all, Commit To Get Fit with Laura now – or else risk
    a big health fall.”
             “Please help us, please help us!”
    cried Micky, Mike and the kids – we promise to move more and eat
    healthier –
    if we only knew what that is!
             We swear we’ll all come Commit To
    Get Fit and follow your lead – just tell us there’s hope so we’re
    sure we’ll succeed.
             We’re tired of struggling and not
    getting anywhere, if you’ll please show us the way you did it –
    then we’re sure to get there.
             We promise we’ll give up those
    unhealthy, poisonous, nasty old carbs and we’ll even walk every day
    instead of taking the car.
             We wanna be healthy and we wanna get
    fit. Speedo-worthy by summer sounds good, too, but we know our diet,
    daily cardo and health’s really it.
             We gotta change our
    workout habits, gotta learn something new. We’re ready to do
    whatever it takes, like walking ‘round the block or even the zoo.
    We swear we’re gonna start right away, just you wait and see! We’re
    on it – we swear – for better health and fitness is the only way to
             We’ve heard all the stories and read
    your successful stats. We pray your motivational ways will finally
    help us – we’re sick of being fat.
             And we know we
    can’t accomplish this weight loss thing in just a few days, but we
    swear on all your fine Reindeer we’re ready to change our bad ways.
             We know we’re committing for the
    longest of hauls – we have to Commit To Get Fit with Laura to show
    we’ve got gall.
            Laura’s class
    will help you for the rest of your life, she’ll teach you healthy
    eating, moving daily and it will all save you from strife.
            Make “We lost it
    with Laura” your new battle cry – come Commit To Get Fit with
    and watch your weight vanish in almost the blink of an eye.
            Everyone wins in
    this weight loss challenge this go’round – cos the prize is your
    life and a healthier future – all safe and all sound.
    So, if this isn’t
    compelling enough – even for you – well then, just continue to
    count those carbs from Christmas into the New Year – be sure to
    walk daily and join Laura and her Crew in January for a brand new,
    happier, healthier, more fun you!

         Happy Holidays to
    all y’all and a Merry good night!
