Week #6 Goal: Get Up and Move Every Waking Hour

Days I work with clients are easy to get movement in for hours straight.  My job, thankfully, is quite active.

Action Step #44–Keep More Active While Editing My Novels For Publication

      Well, it is that time of year again, despite the move and other major life changes…it’s time to publish my next novel.  Which means, like zero activity time, unless I force myself into it.  And I cannot really run after eating much…so that means getting up earlier.  Nuts.   Before I move,… Continue reading Action Step #44–Keep More Active While Editing My Novels For Publication

Action Step #40–Get Some Cold Weather Workout Gear

Until now, I’ve only worked out outdoors in Florida or indoors in Chicago in winter.  And as Chicago approaches as my new home, and no gym membership in sight, I realize that it’s time to get some new work out clothes and ideas going on–I just don’t think shorts and tank-tops will cut it in… Continue reading Action Step #40–Get Some Cold Weather Workout Gear
