Well, the year is done, and the inevitable “Year in Review”, and “New Year, New You” posts are coming. I have a blog (that I occasionally write in), so I figured I would jump in and contribute. A bit over a year ago, I was in a rough place. Thanks to COVID I had been … Continue reading Oh Look!! Another “Year In Review” Blog!!
I spend way, way, WAY too much time on my phone, doing pointless things. It frustrates me greatly. I know that I should spend less time on it than I do, but somehow I always end up picking up my phone and staring at social media. My phone. (Kingsman is an AMAZING movie!) I’m not … Continue reading My Phone is Not my Friend.
Wow, its been so long since my last post I had to look the date up. (Somewhat humorously, as I write this, its been exactly 4 months.) Now, according to Motivational Speaker Law, I must have some sort of melt down, and feel super bad about being a lazy ass and not doing anything for … Continue reading Taking Breaks, and James Bond
Recently we watched Soul on Disney+, which was a fantastic movie. It’s a really deep movie too. For a guy like me, that is searching desperately for something in his life, but is unsure what it is, the movie hits pretty hard. Without spoiling anything, the main plot is about a guy looking for meaning, … Continue reading A Good Year is not JUST a Good Year….
It feels like ages that end in zero are landmark ages. I don’t think I've ever heard someone say that they want to achieve certain goals before they hit 27, or 33; its always 30, or 40, or in my case: 50. The setting of goals requires a certain amount of self reflection and as … Continue reading My Struggle and My Legacy.
TLDR: Information seems solid.DVDs have VERY low production quality. The other day I got my Animal Flow DVDs, and today I tried them. Animal Flow Yoga, or just “Animal Flow”, is a form of yoga I stumbled across on Instagram. I follow quite a few people in the fitness industry and a shockingly large number … Continue reading Animal Flow 2.0 DVDs: First Impression.
Every life has challenges. We often look at them as the low points in our lives, things to avoid, but should we? There is an argument that the challenges we face in our lives give our lives meaning. I don’t know about everyone else, but I tend to look back at my life and remember … Continue reading Is Life Supposed to Suck?
Fight or Flight; it's built into our bodies. Its instinctual, and unless you are really self aware its impossible to control it. Your mind perceives a threat and it sends messages down your sympathetic nervous system to get ready for a massive physical exertion. Your body floods with adrenaline, your heart rate and breathing accelerate, … Continue reading Why Exercise Helps Stress
Before joining the military, my wife was a personal trainer, for years before that she was interested in fitness and health. All told, she’s been self educating and “proper” educating about fitness for almost 25 years. I’ve absorbed a lot just through association, and I can say with confidence there is really only one absolute … Continue reading The Fitness Industry is Crap
September has been a rough month for me. The last several months have been rough, but September was particularly rough. At the end of August we went on a bit of a holiday, and had a really nice time. We went to a friends cabin and spent a few days there, just my wife and … Continue reading Wake Me When September Ends!
