Workout Wednesday

[I said in a previous post that I’m not one to write about my workouts, yet I’ve posted several workouts since then. Oh well, take these posts for how they are intended – inspiration for busy, tired grown-ups who just aren’t sure how they’ll fit a workout in. No braggadocio intended.] Wednesday was another one…

Get some?! But what if I don’t want none?

I’ve never been one of those people who posts my workouts to social media. You know the posts: Deadlifts – 8 sets of 200 reps x 3000#. Grrr. GET SOME! Not that I don’t get it. Posting your workouts is a great form of public record keeping. It’s accountability. It’s motivation for yourself and for…

It’s NEVER too late!

Tick-tock goes the clock. Where did the time go? Soccer games, birthday parties, getting the older ones ready for prom, the younger ones fed, bathed and intellectually stimulated; trekking to the grocery store every other day and WHAMMO—June is here.

The holiday…

Watch Your Language!

This post is not about what goes into your mouth, but what comes out it. We’re talking words today, folks. Sentences, phrases and automatic verbal spew that we might not even be aware of. The way we refer to ourselves and the world around us informs our reality and can make our daily grind a…

What drives you?

What got you to boot camp this morning? What made you struggle through one more second of a TRX plank hold? What was it that planted the thought in your head to show up again tomorrow and do it all again? What gave you the will to forgo dessert or a handful of Cheez-Its? What…

‘Tis the Season! Farmers Market Season.

Where do you get your meat? It’s one question I am asked regularly and can answer without blushing. People are interested in humanely raised, grass-fed or pastured meat, eggs and dairy. They’re hearing about the nutritional and environmental benefits of meat sourced from reputable small farmers. Benefits such as high levels of healthy fats, CLAs…
