Big confession time: I haven’t written a freaking word in three weeks. Nothing on Fandom Fitness, nothing on Positive Reinforcement is Not a Burger After the Gym. No book proposal, no Healthy You, Healthy Earths, and no blog posts- no workouts, no recipes, no healthy tips.
Yeah, I was super tempted to name this blog “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly”, but that’s not the ZooFit mentality.
My slogan (motto? mantra?) is “Eat clean, live green, train positive”. I could have easily said “Train Mean”, which is what many fitness programs promote. It’s a cutesy way to tell people you will be a bad-ass if you train with them, AND it rhymes. But animal trainers don’t think that way. We train positive.

Seventeen years ago today, I married the most perfect man in the universe. No, for real. He looks like Thor, he is kind and compassionate, and he does the dishes. Read More “30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 30- Anniversary Tradition”
Today is June 21, the Summer Solstice. It is the longest day of the year, but if you ask me, it could have been a bit longer. I felt rushed all day long, even when I planned my schedule and adhered to it. Read More “30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Day 21- The Shortest Longest Day Ever”
I used to live in Florida. I lived there from 1997 to 2007. Ten years. That was approximately 9 years, 11 months, and 29 days too long.
It’s hard to pinpoint what it was I disliked the most about Florida. Read More “30 Days of Experiencing Nature: Glad I Live in Washington”
How did ZooFit become ZooFit? Why do I call it ZooFit? It’s story time, folks. Who doesn’t love a good origin story? Read More “30 Days of ZooFit: The Creation of ZooFit”
I tote a lot of advice and promotion to physical health and well-being, but rarely touch on the topic of mental health. Perhaps because I think of myself as a little mentally unstable, I don’t think I’m qualified to share on the subject. But fear not, while I remain mostly crazy, I do have thoughts on getting mentally fit as well as physically. And yes, it revolves around having fun and saving the earth.

As it is with life, I got behind on keeping up with my blog. Life happens, but sometimes life throws a couple whammies at you. Sometimes life demonstrates why we need to take care of ourselves. Read More “I’d Give My Right Kidney For Some Good Health Insurance”
This weekend has been a great reminder of how powerful finding one’s sacred space for fitness can be. I participated in two activities over the weekend that got me back in my element. And I can’t wait to return, again and again and again. Read More “Back in my Element”
I’ve become engrossed in a book very similar to my concept of “Zookeeper’s Guide to Fitness”. I thought reading a book with the same ideas as my own would cave my motivation, as I feared someone beat me to the punch, but actually I feel quite the opposite. I am motivated and stoked to share another program with just a few subtle differences, to reinforce the first one. They are on the right track, and I love what they are doing with fitness and achieving goals. I am bringing more to the table.
