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 […]

Sometimes…it snows!

Last week I really rocked the steps for the week and there is no way I was going to be able to repeat that this week. So I was gonna talk about shifting this week’s focus from running to a more well-rounded approach.  But as I drove home it became readily apparent that whatever I […]

Upping the Steppy

So its taken me a while to set some solid physical outcome goals.   Mostly I have been just setting process goals and trying to keep to a schedule.  But now I feel I am in decent enough shape to start upping the ante and that is first going to be reflected in my step […]

In the Event of Rain

It is raining today.  And on my ride home from work I was wondering what to do in case I couldn’t run when I got home.  What to do?  Luckily, it wasn’t too bad when I got to the house and I adjusted my run to a shorter distance so that I could still make my […]

Fix It or Forget It

Okay the end of the week and time to analyze the data.  Lets start with sleep and it’s not a pretty picture.  It’s almost like we’re back with a newborn in the house given the lack of sleep that we’re getting.  I took a nap today and that helped matters.  I don’t feel quite so […]

Take this for Data

This week I am going to post a couple of screen shots each day that are tracking my spiritual, mental, and physical health.  At the end of the week I hope to lock down a more definitive goal for at least my physical health.  But for now here we go.  I’d like to thank the […]

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 […]

Count off: 1, 2, K, B

So quick post tonight.  I am doing my workouts with my daughter when I get home from work.  Well, daddy does the workout and the little one plays in the vicinity.  Tonight we practiced counting.  I was doing a series of planks for 18 seconds each.  I counted out loud so she could count along […]

Sliders

Today my workout included a couple of exercises utilizing these slider thingies.  After I did a warmup I did two sets of six lunges and leg curls followed by two sets of six old-fashioned push-ups.  I don’t know the technical word for them, but gliders or sliders seems to work when searching online.  There are tons of exercises you […]

Everything is a Choice

God gave us free will.  We have a choice in all that we do.  We can choose to do something or we can choose to do nothing.  Sometimes we choose to take the harder road and sometimes we don’t. I’ll be honest.  Over the last six months I’ve chosen to forego physical activity more often […]
