30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 30- Anniversary Tradition

Seventeen years ago today, I married the most perfect man in the universe. No, for real. He looks like Thor, he is kind and compassionate, and he does the dishes. Continue reading 30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 30- Anniversary Tradition

30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 21- The Shortest Longest Day Ever

Today is June 21, the Summer Solstice. It is the longest day of the year, but if you ask me, it could have been a bit longer. I felt rushed all day long, even when I planned my schedule and adhered to it.  Continue reading 30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 21- The Shortest Longest Day Ever

30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 7- Glad I Live in Washington

I used to live in Florida. I lived there from 1997 to 2007. Ten years. That was approximately 9 years, 11 months, and 29 days too long.

It’s hard to pinpoint what it was I disliked the most about Florida. Continue reading 30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 7- Glad I Live in Washington

30 Days of ZooFit: Day 25- The Creation of ZooFit

How did ZooFit become ZooFit? Why do I call it ZooFit? It’s story time, folks. Who doesn’t love a good origin story?  Continue reading 30 Days of ZooFit: Day 25- The Creation of ZooFit

30 Days of ZooFit: Day 23- ZooFit’s Guide to Mental Health

I tote a lot of advice and promotion to physical health and well-being, but rarely touch on the topic of mental health. Perhaps because I think of myself as a little mentally unstable, I don’t think I’m qualified to share on the subject. But fear not, while I remain mostly crazy, I do have thoughts on getting mentally fit as well as physically. And yes, it revolves around having fun and saving the earth.  Continue reading 30 Days of ZooFit: Day 23- ZooFit’s Guide to Mental Health

I’d Give My Right Kidney For Some Good Health Insurance

As it is with life, I got behind on keeping up with my blog. Life happens, but sometimes life throws a couple whammies at you. Sometimes life demonstrates why we need to take care of ourselves. Continue reading I’d Give My Right Kidney For Some Good Health Insurance

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. Continue reading Back in my Element

Level Up My Life- How I Write!

I’ve become engrossed in a book very similar to my concept of “Zookeeper’s Guide to Fitness”.  I thought reading a book with the same ideas as my own would cave my motivation, as I feared someone beat me to the punch, but actually I feel quite the opposite.   I am motivated and stoked to share another program with just a few subtle differences, to reinforce the first one.  They are on the right track, and I love what they are doing with fitness and achieving goals.  I am bringing more to the table.

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. Continue reading Getting My CREW Together

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.
