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 organizing your life like that.

2016 Review Exercise

One of my many, many emails I get from fellow fitness professionals trying to sell me their programs intrigued me with the headline “Your Must Do Exercise for 2017”.  It was basically an advertisement to sell a $60 journal/planner, and while I have absolutely no desire to pay that much for a planner, I took a look at the exercise.  Even though it was sent by a fitness professional, this exercise had nothing to do with working out.  It was a writing exercise, so I decided I would share it with all of my two followers.

Progression Check-in

It’s been one week since I started on my Daily Writing Habit.  I haven’t officially rewarded myself yet, but I have downloaded a couple iPhone apps that help me track my healthy habits.  It’s weird how completely satisfying it is to check off the “completed” box next to the habits I’m trying to form.

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 out excuses to be alone, take naps, skip workouts, binge snack, and basically revert to old habits of (non)self-care.   Continue reading 100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 98: Why I’m Here

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 89: Social Media for the Writer

Sometimes I feel living in this new age of technology and connectiveness to, well, everything is a bit of a blessing and a curse.  I’m not the most tech savvy person on the planet, as my husband will certainly attest.  And sometimes I feel this new age breaks us away from nature and the great outdoors which can be somewhat detrimental to our well-being, and the planet’s.  But living in this age can benefit those of us who have something important to share with the world, and social media can definitely be a unique tool for the writer to share their story to a broader audience.social-media-explained-for-indie-writers-767x1024 Continue reading 100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 89: Social Media for the Writer

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 86: Tales From the Taproom

Within 24 hours, I have visited the Beer Bar in Bayview Corner called the Taproom twice already and have had a wonderful experience both times.  However, both times had nothing to do with the food or drinks consumed.  It was the atmosphere and feelings afterward that made the Taproom so memorable.   Continue reading 100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 86: Tales From the Taproom

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 58: A Seinfeld Type of Day

If you ever ask what the show Seinfeld was about, your answer will be that it was a show about nothing.  I know I did a bunch of stuff- did laundry (including both heavy blankets where the Monster kitty threw up a hairball), I made a breakfast casserole, stopped by the library to pick up my copies of “Seeds of Hope” by Jane Goodall, drove all the way to Padilla Bay outside of Anacortes for Beach Naturalist training, and even went grocery shopping to last through Saturday, when I am able to attend our first Whidbey Island farmers market.  But I feel like it was a Seinfeld type of day.  A day where nothing happened.
