Moving your way to happiness

I recently went through my work calendar and made a whole lot of appointments with myself to move more. I figure that if it is on my work calendar I will be more likely to do it, and it will also prevent someone else from getting on my schedule if I show as booked. I then went the extra step (no pun intended) of recruiting someone at work to do this with me. (I have found that accountability helps me stay on task.)…

In An Exercise Rut? Try Something New

As human beings, we are definitely creatures of habit. We find a routine we are comfortable with, one that fits into our daily lives, and we happily stick to it. Oftentimes to the point where we don’t even realize we have fallen into a rut, and have become uninspired and unmotivated. Many people are afraid to try…

Me and my little shadow

I was looking through our family photo albums when my son plopped himself into my lap. (Full disclosure: I love that he still does that.) He was about three years old in that particular album and as we looked through the photos and I told him stories, I realized how much time he spent following me around. If I was in the kitchen, he was there. If I went into the laundry room, he was there. If I went on any chore, he was there. I recall…

The unknown effects of obesity

I'm back to work and lots of my coworkers have stated that they plan on getting healthier in the New Year. I'm not big on resolutions (I like challenges instead), but I try to remain supportive of their efforts and take walks with them whenever they need a buddy. I think that anything we can do to move more in the day is a good goal.…

The 15-minute mile

Something very silly occurred to me the other day, as I was thinking about how I don't make enough time in my day for exercise. My problem is that I have been looking at my schedule for a large block of time, but the truth is I don't need that. I just need 15 minutes.…

Taking a moment to catch my breath

I took yoga in college, and I loved it. I felt that it was a great way for me to relax my body and my mind in the middle of a hectic workload. I learned how to stretch out my body, how to move for both relaxation and for energy and how to breathe.



It's funny how often I forget about that last…

Running: Inspired By My Daughters

You know those bumper stickers, the ones that say “0.0 I DON’T RUN?” That was me until a couple years ago. Despite exercising nearly every day, I never considered myself a runner, nor did I have any desire to be one.

I knew people who were runners, and I thought they were crazy. These were people who yearned to…

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike. -John F. Kennedy

Saying good-bye to my fitbit

I'm not wearing my fitbit anymore.



A few months ago, my fitbit stopped recording my data. I was alarmed and upset as I tapped away at the screen only to stare into an empty, unlit space. After a long period of time on the charger, several internet searches and a pulled apart paperclip, I got it up and…

Balancing the weight issue

I have a little secret: I am concerned about my son's future weight. He's not in any danger of being overweight right now, but it is an issue that I try to keep my eye on. Is he getting enough regular exercise? Eating enough healthy food? Growing the way he should? I am concerned about all these things.



Clearly, I read too many parent studies and they weigh on my…

Getting off the park bench

When it comes down to it, I have two choices.



1. I could sit here on this park bench, which is in the sunshine and giving me a much-needed boost of vitamin D. And I could read my book, which I have…
