Still Failing & Making Progress

Hey! We’re one quarter into 2017! How you doing? I am continuously failing AND making progress. I’ve had a rough new year. I can’t seem to stick to any type of exercise for too long. My short attention span gets the better of me and I’ve let it dominate for the better part of the…

Are you doing OK? Me neither.

Are you doing o.k.? Yeah? Me, neither. It’s understandable. We just went through almost 6 to 8 months of the craziest, Twilight Zone inspired political campaigning I think anyone alive has ever seen. Then we started up our annual, 3 months of decorating, shopping, redecorating, dressing up, partying, socializing, wrapping, eating and generally just consuming…

2017 Resolutions – Success is yours!

O.k. Calm down. We are three days into the new year and you’re already freaking out about your resolutions and the fact that you’ve failed them all! You are already over reacting.

Getting Rid of Toxicity In Your Food, Environment, and the People Around You

We all have different reasons and motivations for eating better and exercising. Like I said before, my many other attempts have been for superficial reasons; weddings, outfits, events, vacations, or just wanting to look better. There is not a damn thing wrong with that. Do your thing. If you aren’t happy with any part of…

My Health / Fitness Journey – post 2

I know it’s been a while since the first post and this one. I’ve been processing my world, what I’m doing, how I’m doing it and the challenges I face. One of the challenges I face is figuring out how to write this story. There is a lot going on everyday. There are physical aspects,…
