June is World Oceans Month and today, June 8th is World Oceans Day. I just started my How to Eat Challenge last week. This tempted me to just sit back and repeat a workout from last year– Core of Conservation: Save Our Seas.

My husband showed me this incredible documentary YouTube video about a man who ran a marathon in 24 hours. A different type of marathon, this was actually focused on how productive the man could be while running one mile every hour for 24 hours. He actually ran 3 miles the first hour, then set to do his “To-Do List” after completing a mile each hour. Read More “ZooFit Workout of the Day- 1/14/20: Productivity Workout for Writers”

I have gone to see physical therapists numerous times, and the number one recommendation I always get is “Strengthen you glutes”.
