Resistance Training For the Soul

True confession. I can be a procrastinator. Now most days I feel like nothing can stop me from getting the To Do’s turned into ta-dah’s. But if I’m being honest with myself, most of the tasks I readily handle are fairly meaningless. The really big ticket items—the ones that can alter the direction of my […]

E-Squared Experiment #8 – Do you hear what I think?

I love Scarlett Johansson. No one can play an amalgamation of ingenue, seductress, alien, superhero (or villain) better than her—all while looking amazing in a skintight leather jumpsuit. So when I sat down to watch her latest Redbox movie, Lucy, I knew I would be in for a treat. (Personally, I love movies that delve […]

Focus on Fitness – The Results – Perfectly Incomplete

After 12 weeks of rowing, walking, boxing, squatting, pressing and planking…I finally reached the point in my Focus on Fitness Challenge where it’s time to measure results.

The offspring of two pretty famous parents—Venus (the goddess […]

Yes, I broke boards, performed the […]

Focus on Fitness – Week 11 – Beauty Before Age

“Hey…where’s my friend?” That is the greeting I received this weekend when I ran into Starbucks to pick up our afternoon coffee treat. The smiling young man behind the counter, Robby, immediately noticed that Caitlin was not with me. Normally, she and I are out and about together on all our weekend errands; however this […]

Focus on Fitness – Week 10 – Finish the Drill

I have to be honest…if this week’s theme wasn’t Perseverance, I’m not sure if this blog post would’ve been written. Last week was one of those tiring work weeks that morphed into a weekend where things just seemed a little tougher than normal. (Monday holidays are great, but you really pay for it on the […]

Focus on Fitness – Week 9 – Food for Thought

Earlier this week, as Caitlin and I made our way through the hustle and bustle of morning traffic on yet another chilly Memphis morning, I tuned into a conversation she had started with herself. (You may recognize the names in this one person tête-à-tête if you are a huge fan of James Cameron’s “Avatar” like […]

Focus on Fitness – Week 7 – Dream Big

As the new year begins, I am thrilled to be over half way through my 12 Week Focus on Fitness Challenge. (It makes me happy that I started last November when I see the slightly unsure looks on the faces of the “newbies” in the gym this week. I want to hug them all and […]
