The Beginning of a New Fitness Journey
"You may not be there yet, but you are closer than you were yesterday." Day 1: As I am writing this the day is December 2nd 2021. I know, pretty bad time to start considering its the month of the holidays. Normally I would agree, but now I believe anytime is a good time to start when you truly want to do something. Through this process of figuring out how I am going to get back into working out I have started to realize that this is the start of my new fitness journey. I keep comparing everything to where I was a few years back and every-time I do it discourages me from doing anything at all.

The Perfect Stick
Crocodiles have at least one design flaw. If an insect bites a crocodile in the middle of its back, the crocodile’s legs can’t reach that spot to scratch. This is exploited in the Northern Territory by March Flies, which stab into the soft parts between the impenetrable, shell-like, outer casing of a crocodile. Whilst more irritating than serious, the blood of crocodiles doesn’t clot easily. So affected crocodiles, theoretically at least, could bleed to death from these itchy bites on their backs.

We all heard the cliche sayings like "listen to your gut" or "I just have a gut feeling..." but do we actually understand what it means to listen to your gut?

Well, now that there is a lot more research being done and readily available information on gut health and the community of bacteria living there, I took the opportunity to educate myself on just how much influence our gut health has on our body and thinking minds and it turns out, it plays a MAJOR role in just about every small to life-changing decision.
