How to Stay Motivated during Winter
Sure it’s freezing outside, but that’s no reason to give exercise the cold shoulder. Find out how to keep working out all year long. At times winter feels like it was designed to derail all of our well intentioned fitness New Year’s resolutions.

Sure, the conditions encourage eating more and doing less, but the bedrock of motivation is based on two things. The first is having a goal or target to aim for. The second is clearly understanding the positive effects your actions will have on your life. Connect with these two forces and you will always be inspired.
Obstacle course racing “Spartan Racing” is the fastest growing professional sport in the country. Hunter Mcintyre is the leading Reebok elite athlete on the Spartan Race circuit. Hunter, who to refers to himself as “The Sheriff” shares his story.
Spartan racing was the brain child of Joe De Sena, arguably one of the toughest extreme athletes in the world and founder of the original “Death Race”. Spartan Racing is edgy, running through fire, wading through freezing water, being electrocuted, climbing through mud pools and over walls from anywhere between 3-14 miles and up to 25 obstacles that you don’t get a chance to prepare for. Suffice to say, these races are challenging and there lies the appeal. Hunter was born to compete in these events and since 2012; he has never finished off of the podium. If you enjoy human gritty competition, Spartan racing is for you.

Tonight's guest is the creator of the Jane
Sharon's own words "
Janes patient examination gowns were born out of necessity. My Mother and two sisters are Breast Cancer Survivors, because of that family history, I often found myself in Breast Health Centers, Radiology Departments and Women’s Clinics being vigilant about testing and exams. During those times I would sit endlessly in an ill fitting, uncomfortable and very thin patient/hospital gown. The women around me were in the same situation...skinny girls were freezing and other women falling out the front of the gown, exposed and vulnerable.
I feel strongly that during these stressful times women have the right to be comfortable and more dignified. There had to be something better and I set out to develop it.
In October of 2012 Janes were ordered by the Breast Health Center at Women and Infants Hospital. The patients loved them...I was so encouraged by the feedback. From that one Breast Health Center Janes began to sell throughout the country. All very exciting.
Unfortunately, at that time I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer. Following surgery, during chemotherapy and radiation my Jane was my best friend! I had not intended to become the “poster child” for Janes...I am here to say that Janes are comforting and make a difference in how I felt and how I was viewed. My Janes gave me confidence as well a secure feeling.
My passion today is to get the word out to women everywhere that ‘it is okay to bring your own gown’, that women have the right to comfort and that there are alternatives out there to the traditional much lacking patient gown.
A lot is going on since the peace talks have begun again. Weather around the world is going nuts. Fukushima has errupted and much more.
West Bank under over two feet in snow with Gaza flooded with freezing rain knee deep. Many homeless because of IDF demolitions of homes over the past year.
The reason no construction is allowed because the malevolent attitude of the IDF and the Zionists of the United States that prevents any and all help to Palestinians. Hopefully the UN will be permitted to bring in food and fuel for the generators so at least they will have heat in the hospitals and schools. Alsoi needed is at least tents for soime pritection from the bitter cold.
The Al Jazeera English channel is the only television news source that has told America what is goiong on in the West Bank and Gaza of Palestine. MSM have done or reported nothing.
