30 Days of ZooFit: Setting Myself Up for a Successful Writer’s Conference

Tonight, I am traveling to Las Vegas for a writer’s conference. This is my first writer’s conference, but not my first professional conference, or my first conference in Las Vegas either. Las Vegas may not be my first choice for a vacation, but I’m not going to look at sights for this trip. In fact, because I’m not much of a lemur or lizard (I don’t bask in the sun), I doubt I’ll step outside the conference rooms.

Best and Worst of 2017

Best and Worst of 2017

(Wow, the year was so overwhelming for me I wanted to skip right over it and go into the best and worst of 2018).

I’ve heard from quite a few people I know well and people I don’t know at all about how bad 2017 was. I’m not going to lie. It wasn’t the best for me either. But there were some truly enjoyable moments mixed with the scary shit. I guess it’s always all about balance. Read More “Best and Worst of 2017”

NaNoWriMo

Every once in a while I get so involved in my writing and my projects, I completely forget about this blog. So it happened this past month. Last month was NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. It’s the time of year when every writer huddles in a corner and yells incessantly at anyone who remotely interrupts them, even if it’s to bring them their coffee. Read More “NaNoWriMo”

Level Up My Life- How I Write!

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.

Willpower- Part 2

Willpower is having the ability to do what you need to do, regardless if you feel like it or not.  I concede, I falter on this virtue more often than I’d like to admit.  It’s not even things I don’t want to do or don’t feel like doing.  I’ll be super motivated to get something accomplished and the time comes for me to muster the willpower to finish, and I just collapse.   Read More “Willpower- Part 2”

2016 Review Exercise

One of my many, many emails I get from fellow fitness professionals trying to sell me their programs intrigued me with the headline “Your Must Do Exercise for 2017”.  It was basically an advertisement to sell a $60 journal/planner, and while I have absolutely no desire to pay that much for a planner, I took a look at the exercise.  Even though it was sent by a fitness professional, this exercise had nothing to do with working out.  It was a writing exercise, so I decided I would share it with all of my two followers.

A Look Forward at the End of the Year

Note: I was away for the holidays and had incredibly limited access to WiFi, and no access to write posts.  Home again, home again, and I find I’m trying to play “Catch Up”.  This is my post from December 29, 2016.

Coming to the end of what seems like a horribly tedious year, I am trying to remind myself of the brightness and optimistic memories I experienced from 2016. Read More “A Look Forward at the End of the Year”
