The End of An Era

Hi Fit Friends,

Due to my interests in other areas and the need to be laser focus in my entrepreneurial efforts…with much heartbreak, I will no longer post to this site anymore.

If you are interested in still following me and my future endeavors, feel free to sign up on my mailing list below  and I’ll keep you posted if you like.

Thank you for many years of great posts and good times.

Your Fit Friend,

Late Entry: Grrr…Grumble, Grumble..

Hi,

I bet you thought I forgot about you and my promise to write to you on Fridays.

Well…

I did.

DOH!

I have something good to make up for it though.  Don’t be mad, okay?

Go over to visit Smitty’s post from Diesel Strength & Conditioningyou won’t regret it.  See you next Friday, ok?

6 Life Lessons from 2013 

31 Day New Challenge

December 2013 is a wrap.

Duh, right?

We as a fit family decided to do the following for December:

  • Bear Crawls based on the date of the day (e.g. Day 5 would be 5 crawls)
  • Squats based on the date of the day (e.g. same as above)

We squeaked through this challenge with high fives all around.

My ladies (my wife E and daughter M) became all hardcore and would keep bugging me, “So what is the next challenge?  What are we doing?” Continue reading

#MightyMonday – New Changes In Store

Good Morning Warriors,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

Starting today, you can expect to see one post a week here at Rise and Transform.  

I think Friday will be the day that I will burp out a post for you.  

Why?  

There are other endeavors that I am exploring and maybe I’ll let you in on them…if you’re good. LOL

Thanks for reading and Lord willing, see you Friday!

Daily Prompt: Mad as a Hatter

Wow…where to begin? Okay, you may be thinking….”Wait, you’re a Christian, right? You are not suppose to get angry.”

*Falls over laughing*

Yeah, right. I have become angry over little things. I have allowed people to make me upset (which in turn gave them my power), I have been upset at trivial news (Ben Affleck is playing Batman?!), and I have been upset at the right things (sin in my life).

Anger is a power that needs to be directed correctly and focused correctly. If not, like a fire, it can turn into a inferno.

And yes, my favorite Marvel character is The Incredible Hulk. You would think after all these years, he would become calmer, huh? 😉

Nerd Post: I Have Gone To The Darkside

For all of my readers out in cyberspace, you probably know that I am a die-hard Linux fan.  I had given up using Windows with Windows XP (although I would soil my hands to go back to it if I needed to print using a VirtualBox).

Well, this has all changed when my laptop died a few months back.  However, God provided us a new laptop and the laptop is pre-installed with Windows 8.0.

I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised at how Windows has improved and I never thought that the words “pleasurable experience” could go along with the product Windows.  I stand corrected.

So there, I said it.  Windows 8.1 is a wonderful product.

P.S. I will still install Linux on this laptop too to have dual boot options. Why? Cause I’m a rebel, Dottie. :p
