March to Finals!

March 23, 2011 - I know you’ve been waiting for it, and the Challenge is here! In an effort to start people on the Trinity Campus to become more active, a Health and Wellness initiative was started to gauge interest by the student body.  The campus has a 40% obesity rate and many of the students feel that they do not have direction when it comes to fitness, nutrition, and wellness.  As a result, the gears of the collective mind of the staff have been feverishy turning to try and garner interest in health and wellness, including meetings, special events from dining services, and … Continue reading

Workouts 2

March 23, 2011 - More Workouts for all those interested!  In addition, I am previewing Trinity Universtity’s “March to Finals” walking log, which you can look at HERE.  I want people on the TU campus, or really anyone who wants to participate, to put how many times they run or walk a day on the log, as well as how long then went and how many minutes it took them, and we’ll see who can walk the furthest in 50 days!  You can choose to log either miles or steps; know that one mile is just over 2,000 steps, assuming the average step is about … Continue reading

The Vegan Cookie Experiment

March 18, 2011 - Not many people know this, but Vegan treats are delicious! I often go to our local organic market, Roots, and pick up some Chocolate Chip Cookies from Sticky Fingers Bakery.  These suckers are huge, and my treat after I eat dinner is 1/2 a cookie (maybe a whole one if I did my long run that day). On a side note, Team Sticky Fingers seems like a nice group of ladies, and you can follow them on their blog HERE as they train for their road and CX cycling races.  Also, their bakery is about 2 miles from Trinity, off … Continue reading

March 14, 2011 - Here are some workouts I did with my daily group from last week.  Feel free to use them, alter, or add on.  Each workout, including warmup and cooldown, takes about an hour to complete. Enjoy! All Workouts start with the same warmup and cooldown with stretching and abdominal work. Warmup: 2 sets of: 20 squats to knees at 90 degrees (sitting back into your heels), 20 lunges (alternating legs, knee touches the ground), 10 pushups, 10 full situps; 30 yard jog with buttkickers (literally run and snap your heel up to kick your butt), 30 yard skip, 30 yard straight … Continue reading

Racing the Rain

March 10, 2011 - I love personal challenges.  I’m fortunate in that when I set my mind to a task, I must complete it.  If I don’t, it becomes a personal failure.  I know, this is harsh.  I finish every book I start to read, eventually, even if I hate it I can later talk about how terrible it is and why; I finish all the boring solo swim workouts I set out to do so I can log in my 3500yds; if I have a plan for dinner no matter how much time I’ve lost in traffic, gosh darn it I’m making those … Continue reading

Being Well…Satisfied

March 1, 2011 - No one is 100% satisfied with themselves. A satisfied person seeks no improvement on their bodies, their minds, their jobs, or their relationships.  If someone was completely satisfied, that person would not set goals, change, or achieve anything else. When it comes to physical appearance, or health and wellness, I think it is more common for people to express their unsatisfactory state.  Too fat.  Too slow.  Hair too curly.  Eyebrows too bushy.  Arms too flabby.  Trouble sleeping.  Trouble eating the right things.  Misery loves company because everyone is unsatisfied with something; you want to spark a conversation, just gripe.  Personally, … Continue reading
