2013 Weekly Challenge #40: Where's Your Mojo?

2013 Weekly Challenge #40:  Where's Your Mojo?

This week is all about excuses.

We all have them. The reasons we give ourselves, and others, for not doing what we know is best, or what we promised ourselves or others we'd do. But this time we're not just talking about being a couple minutes late to work, or not getting all the laundry done...we're talking about health, fitness, and overall MOJO.

Have you found your MOJO? If not...why not?

Are you in a job you don't like or that doesn't challenge you? Do you throw yourself under the bus first, giving up your fitness appointment for the benefit of someone else? Do you have a hard time setting boundaries with others (boss, spouse, etc.) making it impossible to take care of you?

Exotic Supercar Show & Rally Fundraiser Sept 8

Exotic Supercar Show & Rally Fundraiser Sept 8

Ferraris (including a Ferrari 458 Challenge car), a McLaren MP4-12C, a Lamborghini and more will converge on Gold River next Sunday, September 8, with one goal in mind.  The owners of these exotic cars are joining forces to bring awareness to epilepsy and raise money for a cure.  It’s all part of a car show and champagne brunch extravaganza called the “Exotic Supercar Show and Rally.”

The funds raised at the event go to the Bronte Epilepsy Research Foundation.  Bronte is a local, 20 year old girl, with a severe form of epilepsy called, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, which subjects its victims to seizures every couple of minutes without proper medication and treatment.  All epilepsy research monies stay local, going to UC Davis Health-Bronte Epilepsy Research Program and the Sutter Neuroscience Institute.
