Deep a Breath Take

Another Friday and I did my balanced breathing like I always do relatively first thing at work.  I really try to focus my thoughts and attention on God/Jesus when I do.  I’m not always successful on keeping my thoughts on Him but am getting better at it. I use the Inner Balance app and sensor […]

Apply Work Here

One of my workouts last week I noticed something.  It wasn’t anything novel and many people have experienced it.  Basically, I wasn’t having any fun working out.  Let’s be honest some physical activity just isn’t fun.  Usually it’s something we’re not good at.  I was in the midst of an 18 second forward plank.  I […]

Its Force Friday! While I didn’t run out to buy any of the new Star Wars toys, I did however use the force to get my workout done this morning, which was a lot tougher since I have started using heavier weights.  I also focused my attention more on what I was doing using a […]

Week 13 Day 4: Runaway Sets!

Today I encountered a phenomena that I like to call runaway sets.  It first occurred in my second set of exercises at 9:30 am while doing the Robot Trio.  Instead of doing 15 reps I caught myself at 21.  While I was still counting my attention was not on the exercise.  The movement had become […]
