    Body & Mind – 3 Month Update

    Quick update for you all on my Body & Mind program in the Sweat App! I’ve been pretty good about staying on top of the workouts each week. Sometimes I do my workout before dinner and sometimes I do it later in the evening, closer to bed time. With the Body & Mind program being yoga based, it’s easier to do whenever and it’s not like I’m doing a hardcore workout right before bed. I took a break Christmas week because things were just crazy with the holidays plus I went to DC for a few days. Although I did walk a ton when I was in DC so I…

    4 Ways To Change Your Life In 2019

    It takes about thirty seconds to decide to change your life. It takes a lot longer to implement those changes. Life is exciting, thrilling, scary, saddening and frustrating all at the same time, but we only ever get one of these, and it’s not a run-through or a practice. There are no do-overs and there are no chances to go back and start again. It’s not a video game; it’s your one shot to make a mark on the universe.

    BAM Update 2

    I’m back with my 2nd update for the BAM (Body & Mind) program in the Sweat App. I’m still loving the yoga based exercise program in the app. I’m taking a different approach to this update post today though.
