I woke up to 30 degree temperatures this morning and it made me so happy. Fall is finally here and as the season changes, our workouts need to adjust with them. No more shorts or tank tops for me! Since I definitely do not want to give up working out just because of the weather, it’s time to pick up some Fall fitness must haves!
I’m sharing what I do to shift my fitness routine into Fall and to help you Fall into fitness I’m giving away a C9 Champion® Embrace Run Tight and a $50 Target gift card!!

Do you remember where you were when it happened? I do. I was sitting in Concert Choir at my high school, we were in-between pieces of music when the principal came on over the speakers. The attacks were announced to the whole school. It got eerily quiet in the room. Then my teacher stood up and did something you aren’t suppose to do in public schools. She prayed. She prayed for NYC, for the United flight, and for the Pentagon. The pentagon attack was the scariest for us initially being so close to DC. Not only was it close, but living in this area, a lot of us had parents or knew someone working there at the time. The rest of the day was a blur.
No matter who you are or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in everyone’s mind.
The 9/11 film is based on the original play, The Elevator, that centers on the events of September 11, 2001. Based on a true story, it chronicles the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of 9/11 in the World Trade Center.
9/11 stars Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Luis Guzman, Gina Gershon, Wood Harris , Jacqueline Bisset, Olga Fonda, and Bruce Davison. For more information visit 911movie.film.
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later … their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

A new school year means change. Some kids take that head on, others need a little more encouragement. We are facing a BIG change this year. My Princess, my first born, is going to Middle School. *Stops to sob in the corner* She is starting the year off in a new school, with kids she doesn’t know, and the dreaded changing for gym thing is happening. Although my son isn’t changing schools, he is moving on to second grade with a new teacher. He isn’t always the most eager when it comes to change. So what can we do as parents to help them feel comfortable with all changes a new school year can bring?
Thank you to Hanes for sponsoring this post.
Whether they are facing a new school or just a new classroom, these 5 tips will help them keep calm, comfortable, cool, and ready to tackle the new school year.
5 Tips for First Day of School Comfort
1. Visit the School/Open House
If your child is attending a new school, check to see if that school has summer hours. It is a great time to get them in the door and begin acclimating to their new surroundings without a million kids in the way. Also check for an Open House or Meet the Teacher event. My kids love seeing their new classroom, desk, and meeting who is in charge of them during the year.
On the first day of school, they will look like pros who don’t need their mom and just walk away leaving her to trail behind… I mean, look how confident they are!
2. Find Your Path
Car riders, walkers, and bus riders all need to know when they need to get out the door. If your child walks or rides a bike, take them on the path so they are familiar with how to get to school. Bus riders should know where to stand and what time is the latest they can run out the door and still make it on time. I was guilty of pushing that limit a few times!
3. Clothing Essentials
Hanes.com has all the back-to-school basics my kids need and for really great prices. I can also snag essentials for my husband and I, one-stop shop? Yes please. Why are we so #HappyinHanes? Hanes products are comfortable, durable, and made with your needs in mind.
EZ Sort® socks might be her pick because she likes the feel and colors, but I like the not hunting for matches thing. With the perfect for layering, ComfortBlend® Girls’ TAGLESS® Camis, she doesn’t feel weird about having to change in front of the other girls during gym class. The X-Temp™ technology keeps them cool from the classroom to the playground. And FreshIQ™ advanced odor protection technology, saves my nose when my son takes off his shoes!
4. Talk it Out
Before the chaos begins, set aside some time and snuggle up on the couch or grab lunch one-on-one. Talk with your children about how they feel going into the new year. Talking about their concerns and hearing encouragement or even an embarrassing story or two, will help them feel confident walking back into school.
