Back in my Element

Back in my Element

This weekend has been a great reminder of how powerful finding one’s sacred space for fitness can be. I participated in two activities over the weekend that got me back in my element. And I can’t wait to return, again and again and again.

Event Training with ZooFit

I am a part of an amazing team competing in the Whidbey Island Triathlon this Saturday.  In my continuous effort to practice ZooFit in all my affairs, I figured training for this event utilizing the principles of operant conditioning, enrichment, and even conservation would be a great experiment. While we…

Willpower- Part 2

Willpower is having the ability to do what you need to do, regardless if you feel like it or not.  I concede, I falter on this virtue more often than I’d like to admit.  It’s not even things I don’t want to do or don’t feel like doing.  I’ll be…

Getting My CREW Together

Getting My CREW Together

If you’ve met me, you have learned pretty soon that I love lists.  I make lists of lists that I need to make.  With each new year, a sort of tradition of mine is to list my hopes, desires, my “need to do”, and plans.  New years are great for…

New High

I’m pretty proud of myself today.  I achieved several accomplishments in my workouts, eating habits, and especially my writing habit.  It’s nice to reach new personal records, as it’s a natural high for me.

New Day, New You

I survived my workshop I gave in Tennessee at the American Association of Zookeepers’ national conference.  Barely.  

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 98: Why I’m Here

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 98: Why I’m Here

The last few weeks I feel I’ve drifted a bit away from the physical aspects of EarthFit and have been focused on the mental/psychological aspects of our health and well-being. There’s nothing wrong with that, necessarily, it’s merely an observation.  But it’s an interesting one.  I have found myself seeking…
