How many times you have been in a gym and seen someone you would consider a hard core gym rat on a regular basis – working like a total fiend but month after month you see them and they do not appear to be losing any weight.  Or … maybe that is a pretty good description of the rut you are stuck in yourself?  And you’re pounding iron like a beast 3 to 5 days a week and/or putting in 45 minutes to an hour of cardio 3 to 4 times a week and can’t shed a pound?

Whether it’s during the holiday season, or the rest of the year, the most important gift we can receive, is family.  At Community Regional’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), we believe in this deeply and work to create as many bonding experiences as possible – for families that may feel fractured by a premature birth.  There is no time of the year where parents feel that it is easier to be separated from their babies, but it can be particularly difficult during the holidays.

December’s hike up to Table Top Mountain with fellow Community employees was awesome!  I couldn't’t be more thrilled with the turn out: 30 hikers and four dogs started and 30 hikers and four dogs finished!  I am so proud of all the hikers who not only hiked Table Top, but conquered it! It’s not an easy hike.  We had hikers from Medical Records, Case Management, Corporate Information Systems, Finance, Education, Fitness Center, Emergency Department and more.

In this holiday season, here is a gift idea: give the gift of resilience to yourself. It is a wonderful quality which will also benefit your family, co-workers and patients in ripple effects!

Resilience, what is it really? An on-line definition explains resilience as:

1. The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.

What to do?  "Do I lift before cardio? Or is it cardio before lifing?"  I wish I had a dollar for every time I was asked what the best workout order is.

Sequoia East and West rooms were transformed into a magical winter wonderland for a few hours on Dec. 9 for Community Regional Medical Center’s second annual Pediatric Open House. We took the opportunity to show off our great staff for the 8-bed pediatric unit, share the facts about our pediatric care and educate parents and kids about safety and health issues for children.
