Tips for Zero Waste

Haha! I told my husband I was going to blog about Jingle Trail, but I forgot I need to finish my post on Zero Waste… Tomorrow is a better day to talk about running anyways. Last week I attended a lecture presentation at the library on Zero Waste. The first…

Conservation Fitness Guide, Day 9- Meal Prepping Saves the World

Conservation Fitness Guide, Day 9- Meal Prepping Saves the World

To me, the most difficult part of the keto diet is the choosing healthy foods and creating healthy meals. It’s almost impossible without planning and preparation, at least at first. This is why I felt it’s perfect to pair keto with the second principle of Eating Green- meal prepping and…

Reinforcement Versus Reward

Reinforcement Versus Reward

It’s strange how inspiration works. For my book club selection next month, I chose an oldie but a goodie, Karen Pryor’s Don’t Shoot the Dog. I chose it for a variety of reasons. It is what animal trainers sometimes call “the Animal Training Bible”. This is a book I grew…

Trying New Things- ZooFit Edition

Trying New Things- ZooFit Edition

I love trying new things, and this week has been chalk full of new adventures in ZooFit. I’ve been trying new classes at the local gym. I’ve been trying new recipes at home. And I even tried my hand at canning and pie baking.

Lessons from a Sloth

I started a running club this summer. I know, shocker! The girl who hates running, and avoids it at all costs just admitted to creating a running club. But wait. You didn’t hear the name of our running group. We call ourselves the Sloth Army. And in the past few…

Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth the ZooFit Way

Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth the ZooFit Way

I’ve been on the fence about how to present this seemingly delicate subject matter, and the most comfortable platform is obviously writing on my blog where only a small limited number of people will actually see it to dispute or argue with me. For some reason, the topic of sugar…

Progression Check-in

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…
