It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve left home to clear my head and reconnect with a great friend. In the time since, I’ve done a lot of work out in the hot sun and have had plenty of time to think about some things that were on my mind. Read More

accomplishment and moving forward to clarity

I’ve been away from home for a couple days now. I’ve been able to capitalize and build on the clarity that I mentioned in my last blog post.

Everyone wants to be healthy and fit, and almost everyone makes stupid new year fitness resolutions as if the first day of the year is the only day of the year. Lots of people complain about how much they “wish” they had a physique that was better.
