Daily Update

Today is tax day... or, well, it used to be. If you hadn't heard, the due date for your taxes has been moved to July 15th. 

Speaking of taxes, nobody really likes paying the government a substantial amount of their hard-earned money. But we do all enjoy the services that our taxes pay for. In the end, it's simply necessary. 

Just like most things in life, there are costs and fees associated with our lifestyles. Think of it in terms of your health and fitness. You can pay for a gym, for healthy food, and for competent instruction. Or you can pay for unhealthy food and for tools to make life easier (read: lazier). 

In the end, we all pay. The habits you choose to cultivate and the sacrifices you choose to make are up to you. Each one will lead you to a different outcome. Choose wisely. 

Lifestyle Tips

Sleeping in a cold, pitch-black room is highly beneficial for your sleep quality. But, it can make getting up in the morning difficult. When a bear is slumbering deep in the cave it's hard to wake them. That's where this gadget comes in handy. It's an alarm clock that lights up gradually to simulate the sun rising. Along with gentle noises, it can help bring you out of your slumber and trick your body into thinking the sun is up and kick-starting your day. I have one and I love it. (Pro Tip: Plug it in across the room so you can't snooze it from a lying down position)

The governor of Florida has deemed professional wrestling (and other professional sports without crowds) as essential. Maybe CrossFit gyms are next on his list... ?


I went and checked out the track at Kanapaha Middle School (tower road) and was able to get out there and run on it this week. It was completely empty and provided me with a nice away-from-home workout. I did 20:00 of :40 on/:40 rest. Give it a shot if you want. As always, be sure to warm up and cool down properly. 

Last But Not Least...
