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. But the days I do the “business” side of work, or writing or other work from home, I just don’t move much.  So, about 1/2 of my week is spent highly active, and the other… Continue reading Week #6 Goal: Get Up and Move Every Waking Hour

Week #5 Goal: Waste Nothing

Job Searches and Thumbtacks

It’s not directly fitness/health/wellness related, but as I’ve been looking for work here in Chicago, I find myself without discipline and routine.  Makes it a bit hard to focus and plan and do workouts.  So, today, in a step in looking for long-term/permanent work and such, I joined Thumbtack.com, which seems to be a pretty… Continue reading Job Searches and Thumbtacks

My Theme for the Year

An article I read made some suggestions for the new year in regards to fitness and health goals/plans, etc.  And while I don’t plan to use all the things, I thought I’d start the process.  Step 1, at least, is a good thing to do: Choose your theme for the year.  They encourage you to… Continue reading My Theme for the Year
