What do YOU do to stay healthy and happy during times of stress? Please share your suggestions. 
Over the past year, and especially the last few weeks, my family’s happiness (and mine) have been on my mind. A lot. Without dwelling on unhappiness and un-health, I’ve now made some changes that were imperative to our health and happiness. You need both to have a quality life.

Seated #Abs   #workout  videos, and #Travel  pictures from Tecate, Mexico. 
While teaching for a week at Rancho la Puerta Spa in Tecate, Mexico I managed to find a few spots that had wifi so I could share some abdominal moves on video. Then I got carried away and thought you'd love to see some photos from Mexico too.

Introduction
Alexandra Williams, MA
Co-owner of Fun and Fit

Social Influence Summary:

I have been teaching, mentoring, presenting, emceeing, editing and writing about fitness for over 25 years. Currently on staff in the Dept. of Exercise Studies at UCSB, I am a contributing editor and writer for IDEA International Health and Fitness Association and frequent guest blogger for numerous online health sites. I co-host the international online radio show, "Fun and Fit"  with my twin sister Kymberly. We also have a blog, Fun and Fit. I am also a former judge for international aerobic championships. My advanced degree in counseling has helped me succeed as a speaker and presenter at professional conventions both in the US and Europe, and as a master teacher for university students and new group exercise leaders. I love people, fitness and a microphone--a winning combination!
