I do a lot of walking. Hiking is my favorite weekend activity. I love my juicer, my aasics, my hula hoop, my bicycle, and my fitbit!

When you're hungry, you eat.
When you're sleepy, you sleep.
The body has ways of letting you know that it needs various forms of release--and you act accordingly.

What if the depression, anxiety and life long insomnia I've struggled with were the body's way of asking for movement?

Competitive team sports and the way physical education was taught to me in my early years nearly destroyed any and all desire I had for exercise. I figured it was something I just couldn't do--since I couldn't excel at competitive team sports--and unless you can crush the opponent, the education system in my country has no use for it.

When I hike, every mile I complete means I win. Every loop I finish, means I win. Every photo I take, every bird, creature, or breathtaking scene I come upon, means I win. Every day I build my endurance, every time I up my stamina, every time I get stronger or faster, I win.

And there are no losers.
The only way I lose is not to go.

I've combined elements of project management and process efficiency to help me on my journey. I've done a successful 30 day juice fast in the past, and absolutely love juice as a tool in the arsenal of fitness/weight loss.

I walk 2-3 times daily and average about 4 miles a day, some days more, some days less. On the weekends I go about 7-8 miles in a day.
