I am going to keep this short because we got a cute little rescue kitten last week and she is my world right now!
But one thing movement/fitness related that I will say before I dive into the digest is: if you want to increase your floor time (and here are some good reasons to do that) getting a new pet is the perfect way to do it! I am always a bit of a floor sitter but lately I am exclusively a floor sitter, crawler, layer, and roller.
Now, please excuse me, there is a piece of string with a bobble on the end that needs to be jiggled 🙂
Second Wind Fitness – Love the Movement, Not Just the Finish Line

Change Academy – How Will You Tell the Story?
All of us will experience our share of challenges, disappointments, and hardships as we go through our lives. We may go through things that are quite traumatic. Our ability to recover and transcend these things depends a lot on how we tell the story of our lives. In this episode, we’re exploring the power of narrative psychology and how we can each use it to cultivate more resilience.
Here is a circuit workout that you can do with a small or big set of stairs. I came up with this workout when we were having a huge scary storm in the area and I didn’t want to risk going out for my normal (movement-filled) walk.
The exercises I do in this video are:
- Stair Push-ups
- Stair Bear Crawls
- Jumping jacks
- Step Down Squats
- Incline Push-ups
- Stair Lunges
- High Knees (with taps)
- Calf Raises
