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.

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 super motivated to get something accomplished and the time comes for me to muster the willpower to finish, and I just collapse.   Continue reading Willpower- Part 2

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.

A Look Forward at the End of the Year

Note: I was away for the holidays and had incredibly limited access to WiFi, and no access to write posts.  Home again, home again, and I find I’m trying to play “Catch Up”.  This is my post from December 29, 2016.

Coming to the end of what seems like a horribly tedious year, I am trying to remind myself of the brightness and optimistic memories I experienced from 2016. Continue reading A Look Forward at the End of the Year

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. Continue reading Progression Check-in

New Warm-up

In preparation for NaNoWriMo, I have dusted off a few of my writing books from my bookshelf and started to delve into one in particular, “A Writer’s Workbook” by Caroline Sharp.  It provides daily exercises for writers, and I can’t think of a better time to practice some of these exercises.
