I have spent the majority of my working life in the information technology field and most recently specializing in Project Management. I started this blog writing about Project Management but later reconsidered and decided to focus on my other passions health, fitness, philosophy, and mindfulness.
For me one of the great joys in life is staying physically fit by exercising daily, sometimes as much as 3 times a day. A typical day for me starts with a 1/2 hour yoga session at 5:00 a.m. followed by 15-20 minutes of meditation. When I have time I like to take a 3 mile walk around lunch time, and finish the day off with a split training strength building routine. Now you might think this is a bit excessive, but when you make exercise a priority it all begins to make sense. The human body was not intended to sit in a chair or couch hour after hour, it was built for action, and the more you move the more it becomes second nature.
I’ve been working out consistently for many years and studying nutrition and supplements, but I am not a physician so what I write about is from what I’ve read and experienced. Just a bit of advice if it hurts, you might consider not doing it. Some exercises can compromise certain areas of our bodies, including some key joints and tendons, and while you might read about how great 200 lb. dead lifts are, make sure you start slowly increasing weight over time and don’t compromise a weak area of your body. Another key component that will be covered by this blog is nutrition, an area I myself struggle with, because working out is really only half the equation the other variable is what you put in your body. Does this mean you can’t enjoy a pizza, a bowl of ice cream, a glass of wine, or a beer from time to time? No but they can’t be the mainstay of your diet if you want to really look and feel great.
In addition to health and fitness, I like to write philosophical prose from time to time. It is my hope that some of my ramblings can help you live your life in a more mindful fashion, who knows you might begin to enjoy some of the simpler things in life and stop worrying about the future and regretting the past.
My favorite forms of exercise are yoga and strength training, so you will undoubtedly be exposed to quite a few posts from these two disciplines.
Keep moving, eat right, meditate, and approach life with a positive outlook.
