Although most of the traveling I ever have to do for my job is a day trip in the state, sometimes, I get the opportunity to help out other office. This time, they needed help in Hilton Head SC. How could I say no? Yes, Sparkers, I packed my snea... Read more
Be your own Health Advocate
At 27, I never really thought that I would have to be worrying about my health. It seems now a bit naive to think that youth is a magic shield from germs, disorders, and calories.
Last week, I had a physical from my GP. To be honest, if my... Read more
Back in the Game
Happy Day Before Super-Bowl everybody!! Is everyone getting excited for the big game? Personally, I don't care too much for the game itself. I'm more a beer or two with a bunch of friends. It's a great occasion to be able to get together. In the... Read more
I haven't worked out in two weeks. Okay, I confessed.

Planning the Week Ahead

For about 10 hours, I was on the job site, jumping in and out of my car for when ... Read more
Scheduling and Time Management
So, for work, I'm often traveling during the day to sites across the state. And, to help me get to the gym more often, I picked one close to work, over an hour away from home. Yeah, I'm all over the place!!
Tomorrow is the first time since... Read more
