Addiction and Detoxing....

My wife wrote a book called the 90 Day Achievement Detox.  She has always been an achiever in every sense of the word.  Witnessing the process of the 90 days was at times an unbearable experience for the other two bodies in the house.... it was evident that change was happening. I am witnessing the detox of others through one of my addictions, Facebook ...  It's the witnessing of the detox from FREEDOM that is really painful. This started out as satirical, but is turning into reality.  We are all detoxing from FREEDOM.  We have been asked to flatten the curve by staying at home... I feel like I am witnessing a heroin addict shake sweat and panic from the...

Training for Mt Everest

I can't remember the year my friend Trynt was training for a chance to climb and summit Mt Everest, but I do remember the training.  Trynt is a friend who was firefighter by occupation and outdoor enthusiast the rest of the time.  I don't remember how we met, but we were destined to be at least a small part of each others lives...(not me in the photo) . Sitting at home now testing every edge of my horrifying addictions of social media and sugar, I am constantly confronted by memories that play a role in what is happening now, March 26,2020.  The pandemic and panic that is constricting our every move (the responsible people at least) is also suffocating passion....

Contagious....the cure

Who would have ever thought it could come to this, get to this point we are all staring at right in the face?   In the wake of the pandemonium we have a variety of people clamoring for help.  Physical, mental and financial help is around... you only need to look or ask.   Our household is locked down as far as we feel we need to be...which is pretty locked down.  Runs to the store, private client appointments, and exercise outside. Being cooped up is a healthy test of where you stand within your own little environment....cue the mouse in the wheel.  Stored up energy is never a good thing unless its in a battery.  My own personal stored...

A Trade for the Support

I just went out for a walk to clear my head.  As I passed by my mail box the little red flag was up... a reminder that I needed to ship out the shorts that were just ordered.  I went back inside to package up a pair of Green Camouflage Warrior Shorts to send to Maryland...and then it hit me. This pandemic and everything else that is happening is devastating.  I am the micro business king with a personal training business, Tennis and Pickleball lessons, Corporate fitness onsite and the SHORTS...GONE...for now. Optimism is a trait of small business.  Gratitude for support is a trait of small business.  We need to sell shorts....I am 100% certain that you or a...
