Sure I’ve been going to the gym to lift weights, I go walking, jogging and running, but CrossFit is a whole new arena that focuses on strength by improving fitness and health by working...

Now Cycling As One Of My Exercises

I decided a while ago it was time to get back on the bike to get the heart pumping, the legs moving as a means of working out the body a few times of week!

Taking More Steps Throughout the Day – How to Improve on It –

Step counters. Do they really motivate people to get more exercise? To be more active throughout the day? To compete with others? If you are me, then the answer to these questions is yes. At the beginning of April when my order for a step counter finally arrived. I took it out of the package and got it all setup and started using it to count my...

Reaching and Obtaining a Goal

This month week I reached a goal – I should say it’s not ‘a’ goal but a pretty big goal. I now officially lost just over 100 lbs. since I was at my heaviest just over 2 years ago. Since starting eating clean I am now almost 80 lbs. lighter. I am feeling much better now – mentally, physically and spiritually. I...

The Seventeenth Day – Going Onward

I awake from a dream – not able to remember what it was about already but that it was not a good dream. The time is now 4:53 AM. It’s dark in the room. I’m now wide awake! I get up, turn on the lights and drink some water. Now I am fully wide awake if I was not just moments ago! I head to my computer and check emails –...
