The Good Old Ways

  Sometimes I get caught up in trying to do something new that I forget that sometimes the old ways work just fine.  In particular, I had been wracking my brain to think of some new way to mix it up when going back was a lot simpler.  It was effective then and we’ll see […]

It’s Too Hot to Move

Since the weather changed officially over to summer I have ceased to run anymore.  It is just too oppressively hot to do so.  Or at least that is my excuse.  I wish we had a pool to do laps in, but alas we do not.  And so I am feeling the urge to do something. […]

Missed It by That Much

Last week I set a pretty bold goal.  80,000 steps in one week.  Well, I came up just shy of accomplishing it.  How close? Let me show you. Only 300 steps shy.  To be honest I didn’t worry too much about it and figured I would hit it Saturday evening.  300 steps.  It didn’t dawn […]

Quick Post

So today I mixed it up and started, actually picked up from where I left off before Lent.  Today was a strength day.  Used the sliders, some straps, and actually busted out some dumbbells.  It was good,  nothing too taxing, but good.  So if you are interested here is the structure for the month of […]
