I am 99.9997% sure that the biggest obstacle in health and fitness, is us. Me, you, all our excuses, business, and procrastination. We all have it and it’s a daily fight. Then, something that seems to get in the way is thinking that staring at a bunch of fitness inspiration pics, and reading a bunch of fitness posts will somehow magically get you healthier and in better shape. Well, all of that inspiration and motivational material is useless (this column included) if you don’t make that final decision to finally get up, break a sweat, and move. (more…)

Road Trip Proofing Your Car A series on finding adventure, stoke, and a killer workout in the Great Outdoors from Johnie Gall of Dirtbag Darling.

I spend a big chunk of the year on the road, traveling from state to state in search mountain peaks and fun waves. What I’ve learned (besides roadside burritos are never a good idea)? That a fun road trip can turn ugly if you aren’t prepared with the right gear.

Deciding to embark on a spontaneous road trip doesn’t have to end in frustration. Nine times out of ten, you’ll roll back into the garage without a single hiccup in your journey. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared for all the things that could go wrong.

It’s easy to road-trip proof your car and stock it with the right supplies. Do it now and you’ll be ready to roll at a moment’s notice (and never have to get ripped off by a tow truck company again!).

swell_green-grass-coconuts_87-645The grass is always greener…where you water it. It’s one of my favorite metaphors for saying… love, cherish, and nurture what you’ve got, where you are, and what you’ve been blessed with. It’s so easy to compare yourself to others, which leads to a downward domino effect of taking what you have for granted, not appreciating the little things, and being a really blah human being. So water your own damn lawn, and water it a lot.

But to tie this in to the picture above. The grass is in fact always greener underneath a coconut tree. Because coconut trees are in the tropics, and it rains a lot there, so everything is lush and green.

So love and cherish what you’ve got, and try to go somewhere tropical with the ones you love too.
