Run Heartily!

Today on February 29, Leap Day 2016, I spoke about running, heart health, and holistic health on Blab. We discussed the importance of activity, relaxation, stress management, sleep/rest, nutrition, and weight loss for better heart health. Happy Heart Health Month!...

Shrinking Mountains into Molehills

On January 29, 2016, I recorded a blab on Shrinking Mountains into Molehills, focusing on SMART (Specific-Measurable-Attainable-Relevant-Time-Bound) goals and using incrementalism to achieve fitness and health goals like running a “bucket list” race like the Great Wall of China Marathon and weight loss.

THANKS 2 myfitnesspal(s)

About 2 months ago, I decided that  I could not track my food & drinks on paper anymore (didn’t work, not disciplined enough) and that in order to ensure accountability about working out & losing weight (and yes, […]
