How to stay active (and lose weight) with a sedentary job

Time. It’s a non-renewable resource in the sense that what we get is what we get. When trying to build things into your daily life, it will always be limited (to a certain extent) by how much time you have available. Well, duh. I think we all can agree on the fact there are never Read More

What to wear when exercising in cold weather?

We are in that time of year where the temperatures are cold, and the warm weather isn’t quite in sight…yet.  Now, disclaimer – I realize I live in the South.

Whew…soooo…about that posting thing.  Ok, here’s the deal.  I am still reading other blogs.  I love their content.  It reminds me I should post my own content.  What gives?  Where is the breakdown ?  Uhhh…that would be in the execution.  You know, I talk with clients all of the time about the disconnect between what Read More

Playlist Sunday

I know, I know.  The title is so original.  As I sit here multitasking while watching the Falcons play the Redskins, I decided to forego spending time on thinking of a better title and actually just write the post.  Clearly, I need to put myself on a better posting schedule…based on my limited track record.

It’s time to jump in…

How many podcasts do I need to listen to?  How many articles do I need to read that tell me to just get started?  I’m a perfectionist.  Ok, there…I said it.  Like many people, I’ve contemplated starting a blog for months now, maybe a year?  Wow…time is running together.  Regardless, I’ve thought about it.  I’ve Read More
