Three For Thursday

Lake Michigan waves

Michigan Outing

Laima and I had the good fortune to head over to Michigan on Monday, to pick up a couch from the family cottage. While there, we took the opportunity to drink some good beer and enjoy a lunch at Greenbush Brewing,  a great spot to visit if you’re in the Sawyer, MI area. We walked down to the lakefront, and Hurricane Sandy’s effect was clearly seen and felt in the wind and waves.

Healthy In Chicago

Healthy Initiative

The goal of Healthy Initiative  is to make Chicago a leader in the fight against obesity and to help change the lives of children and adults. The program starts by transforming the lives of 40 participants over the course of three months. During this time, the participants will receive personalized training and membership to local gyms. In addition, the participants will work directly with Shea Vaughn (Vince Vaughn's mom!) to learn the tools and techniques needed to embrace a healthier lifestyle, along with many other benefits.

Upon completion of the program in February, participants will celebrate their life-changing transformations with a star-studded red carpet gala celebration with the partners of the Healthy Initiative in downtown Chicago. All proceeds and donations to Healthy Initiative Chicago will go to “Give A Little Does A Lot” to fund education, fitness and nutrition programs for children and schools in Chicago.

    1. Sadly true in all places. Even the "healthiest" places in the US have seen their rates soar. :(

  2. That's such a great picture of the lake. I'm jealous every time you mention going to Michigan...one of my favorite places to vacation.

    Healthy Initiative sounds like a fantastic program.
