The Challenge of Challenging

My most recent YouTube video documents a self-inflicted challenge I completed a few days ago. (More on the ‘self-inflicted’ part in a bit.) The challenge, conceived by David Goggins, is called “4X4X48” and it goes like this: Run 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours. So…I started on Thursday (May 7), running 4 miles […]

The Questions We’re Not Asking…

I’ve been doing this a while–nutrition, health coaching, teaching my small steps approach. With each passing year, I realize how crucial my philosophy background is in my approach. At the time I graduated from college with a BA in philosophy, I had no plans whatsoever to pursue a career in nutrition and health. I had […]

WST 037: A Little Foray into Nutrition

philosophy, health, wellness, politics

Ok, a little side stepping into nutrition on this one. Metabolism, complete protein, and the f’d up conventional wisdom of nutrition. Big shocker here, but not everyone is a nutrition expert. I said it, I meant it. IN TODAY’S EPISODE: Metabolism Article | Small Steppers YouTube Channel Support me on Patreon Health Made Simple (8 […]

To Champion the Mundane

Quick thanks to a few donations that recently came in! This money enabled me to buy the equipment I needed/wanted for my new upcoming podcast (see the equipment in this recent vlog!). To be clear (in answer to questions I’ve been getting), the new show is NOT a reboot of the Approaching the Natural podcast. It’s […]

There’s a fine line between discipline and militancy

(Subscribe to my YouTube channel–there you will see me going heavy duty in setting up my new studio for a…well…I’m getting closer to a new podcast with each passing day. Including a whole new microphone/equipment set up. Let’s just say I’m in deep). Ok-here’s the post: As you know I’ve been doing the small steps […]

Change Up.

First a quick thanks for the recent podcast donations I’ve received. Some new-ish listeners who started with older episodes (btw, ALL 222 episodes are on my site, and the most recent 50 are on iTunes) are just now getting the news that I shut down the show. So, in came a few really nice e-mails and […]

Ah, push it.

Not sure who actually wrote “Ah, push it.” I mean, was it Salt, or Pepa, or a joint effort? Sure, it’s neither here nor there, but I’d kinda like to know, since I’m using that bit of wisdom for this post. I’d also like to add that I’ve always appreciated Salt-N-Pepa using just an “N” […]

No, no, no…yes?

A few years ago my sister announced she was beginning the “year of no.” A year where she decided to turn down everything. Everything. Can you help me move? No. Can you watch my children? No. I’m not exactly sure how it went, or how closely she stuck to it, but that move definitely stuck […]

Are you positive about this? 

I am hyper-focused these days. On what? Hold on, I can’t remember. Oh right, hyper-focused on distractions. Sorry, got distracted there for a moment. Today’s world is so full of distractions it’s crazy-making. And the result? The very real energy expenditure required to get focused and stay focused. Without this expenditure, we can easily become […]
