I was lucky enough to be the recipient this summer of something called the Nike Fuel Band. One of my sons received it as a give-away at a company sponsored event. He was nice enough to pass it along to me in hopes that it would help keep me motivated to be as active as possible during the day. Sitting in an office all day talking to people who are being "moved" hardly burns an adequate amount of calories!
On the outside, the Nike Fuel Band looks like a simple black bracelet; but on the inside is where the magic resides. As you press a button on the top of the band, it reveals different readings. One is for the current time, just like a watch. As you keep pressing the button, other displays show up for calories burned and steps taken like a pedometer.
Most importantly, something called a digital fuel count is revealed. The user sets his or her own fuel goal and tries to gradually increase that goal as results are achieved. The best feature to me is that it resets itself automatically each day so that you don't have to worry about remembering to do that. There is also a Nike Fuel App for your phone so that you can sync it at the end of each day and see your activity results over the past days, weeks and months. Do you have any tools or new tech gadgets that help you achieve your desired goals or results? Fall is a great time to begin our goal planning for 2013.

One of the nicest spots that I have found for all us to "get moving" is the Triad Park in Colfax/Kernersville at 9652 E. Mountain Street.
The 426 acre park is maintained by a great crew who are friendly and helpful. There are many picnic shelters with grills, lots of places for kids to play and endless quiet spots if you just want to enjoy the beautiful trees or read a book. Ride a bike? There are lots of good hills and trails for you too.
If you have not visited Triad Park yet, plan a few hours soon and enjoy what it has to offer. The colors will be spectacular as the trees begin to change for fall. And some exciting news for all Triad residents; it will soon be the home of the Carolina Field of Honor. I will give you the details about that in my next blog and how you can get involved in honoring your special military veteran.
Back at work, we will also be getting our minds "fit" with training this fall for relocation agents. Our CBTR Relocation Essentials class will be held on October 3rd at the High Point office from 9-12. This is for new agents and seasoned agents who want to learn more about relocation business. I will be receiving our new Cartus Certified Agent training modules shortly for 2013-2014 and all relocation team agents will need to be re-certified by the end of this year. When this is completed, it will be time to relax and enjoy the holidays. And, if you really want to challenge yourself to get moving in 2013, you could ask Santa for a Nike Fuel Band!
