I read somewhere that Americans have become unhealthier statistically because of the recession. WTF??

You don't need money to exercise! I'm going to try and show that you can get in to shape without spending money - use your environment creatively and you can succeed in attaining better health. My dad is a retired coach and P.E. teacher, and much to his chagrin I've been a lazy ass my whole life. Maybe I can finally put his knowledge to good use, as well as shape up and make him proud!

If you have a creative idea to share be sure to let me know ! I'll post the best photos/videos/links here.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

So I'm a 1/4 Irish every day, but 100% today!  Which means, well, not much really.  I might enjoy a Guiness or some other really bad-for-me beverage.  That's the problem with life - you pretty much know exactly when what you are doing isn't exactly healthy for you.  But its only a day.  Go for it!  You need to blow off steam once and awhile.  Health and fitness are more a lifestyle thing than a knee-jerk occasional burst of guilt-induced exercise.  Well it should be.  If you take smaller steps and make better diet and exercise choices a natural part of your day you will benefit in the long run.  Just be aware of the things that are counterproductive, and avoid them when you can.  No need to be a party pooper tho.  A little indulgence can go a long way in your mental health!  And happy people live longer!
