Wednesday Musings: It Ain't Rocket Surgery

See change isn't all that complex. It’s built upon doing a lot of small things correctly over a period of time. Unfortunately this is where most people get lost. They think it’s enough to work out and stretch for 2 hours a week, completely forgetting the other 166 hours in the week.

How to Beat The Holiday Fluff and Change the World Too

You know there will be a next time. I know it, too. Hell, at this time of year, it might even be in the next few days. I know you are much too cool to be the loser pretending that those are the most flavorful carrot sticks you ever did eat. I know you have more sense than to try to convince yourself that some magical shake drink is going to “fill you up” so much that you won’t just cave at the party and pile hors d’oeuvres on top. I know that you are going to fill this season with all the things that make the Holiday Season awesome. So how can you arm yourself?

Wednesday Musings: Happy Thanksgiving

Coming out of college I felt on top of the world. I was a cocky little shit who thought everyone needed to be in the gym every day and have their life in order. I mean hey, if the college kid could do it why couldn’t these grown adults? But as I got further and further from my sheltered existence on a college campus and started to make more and more decisions with real life consequences, my life felt like it was unraveling.

Wednesday Musings: The Holiday "Freeze"

Instead we lose them to the undefeated champion of excuses, time. Not enough of it, needing to focus it elsewhere, needing to figure out a better schedule. And nowhere does this become more of a factor than during the holidays. “Oh, I just have so much going on right now, I’ll be back in January I promise!”

Wednesday Musings: Elections Edition - The Tribe

Instead we spend our time on social media or watching the news, getting the worst of the worst news from faraway parts of the country about people we will never know and issues we will never face, and we get angry. We create tribes with people who don’t know our lives and our problems and we ignore the very people whose homes we drive by every morning and walk by the on the street every day.

I haven’t always been an early riser. In college I partied quite a bit and getting up for an 8AM class was a struggle.

And though my morning routine has undergone changes and modifications over the last several years, several things have remained constant. Below you’ll find my three biggest tips to starting each day with intention and setting you up for success!

Wednesday Musings: Emergency Sunday Scaries Edition

The moment I stopped making my Sunday about what it is I wanted to do and started focusing on what I felt I needed to do, my mood just plummeted. Going about my day, being productive, and prepping for my week ahead had me feeling on top of the world. Sitting in front of laptop, pounding a keyboard looking for wisdom, and feeling a need to give advice to frustrated people had ME feeling frustrated.

Wednesday Musings: Why Strength Matters

Slow it down! That looked too easy! Make it hurt! Anyone who has worked out in one of my classes is very familiar with me shouting these words at them during a class.
