One thing I’ve learned is confidence is a byproduct of courage. If we wait until we’re fearless or completely confident to take risks, make tough choices, or pursue opportunities it’s counterproductive.

Acceptance & Authenticity

Just a reminder that you can’t please everyone, but if you keep your head up and keep your eyes on your goals, you can learn to be happy with yourself!

Talk Less, Do More. Actions Speak for themselves.

Here’s an awesome post about moving from taking the talk to actually walking the walk!

Staying healthy isnt a crime-Fitness is a lifestyle choice

How can I say this politely without offending anyone, hmm? Talk less and do more. Sounds easy enough, but guess how many people say they will do something and talk a big game, but when the time comes, hey.. they are still talking about it and yet haven’t taken any action.

They’re called the OSCEs, pronounced Oss Skeez, (Objective Structured Clinical Examination). We go from room to room with “standardized patients” (actors) who pretend they have some disease and we have to diagnose them by asking the important doctorly questions or performing the right physical exams or we have to deliver a difficult diagnosis, depending on which room we’re in. This happens while 1 or 2 real doctors stare at us with judging eyes and clipboards where they make notes of all the things we messed up and all the reasons why we shouldn’t graduate…

Review of the FitBit Charge HR


For Christmas 2015, my mom was really getting into walking and watching her calories, so I thought it would be a great idea to get her the new fitness tracker on the market – the FitBit Charge HR.
