Focus on Fitness – Week 4 – Brave Heart

Recently, as my roommates (i.e. my adult children) went to California to visit their Dad for a few days, I started feeling an uncomfortable state of dread gnawing away at my inner peace. I felt fine during the daytime, but as the sun went down, I noticed that my fearfulness meter began escalating (from “slightly […]

Focus on Fitness – Week 2 – Have a Little Faith

Week 2 of my Focus on Fitness journey brought on the challenge of navigating through the official start of socially acceptable overeating—Thanksgiving. On Monday, I was invited to attend the Thanksgiving lunch at my daughter’s day program. Not knowing the menu, I packed a healthy salad with protein and set out to the event. Turns […]
