CHALLENGES

WeeklyChallenge

Each week we will focus on a weekly challenge, or as I sometimes call them,   “Weakly Challenges”.

No, that is not a misspelling.  Every week I will be posting a challenge to myself that is both attainable and annoying as heck to do, and that I’ve thus far been too “weak-minded” to accomplish. If we all tackle these challenges together, I believe that we will find the strength to overcome our weak-mindedness.

Exercise Weekly Challenge #4: WALK, Don’t Drive!

I was born into a family that enjoys walking. I mean, REALLY enjoys walking.

Exercise Weekly Challenge #3: Right on Schedule!

Life it tends to get busy. Lets face it, how many times do you come back from a hard day and say “I guess I should go to the gym but… maybe I’ll just wait till tomorrow.” Instead of making the gym the extra thing to do if time permits it, look at your weekly [...] Read More...




Exercise Weekly Challenge #2: Keep on Stretchin’!

Flexibility is a key player in exercise performance. When you are flexible you can increase the intensity and speed with way more ease, which gives you a better workout.

Exercise Weekly Challenge #1: Stair Down (And Up)!

One of the easiest ways to get in some exercise is by simply using the stairs. This act is many times ignored out of sheer laziness.

Procrastination Weekly Challenge #1: Write Your Goal

I always believe goals are important. For me, goals are what keep me focused and driven.  Many times, however, even with my goals, I easily find myself floating along and acting more like a fish merely going with the tide.
