For Those of Us of a Certain Age

March 31, 2016 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

Hopefully this little musing will appeal to a wide population of various ages; but, if you have received an invitation to get your AARP card, then I am pretty sure you can relate. I am 67, neither proud of it nor embarrassed by it. That’s just the chronological age I happen to be. Having reached…

It’s All About Consistency

December 21, 2015 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

Some say that consistency is the hallmark of achievement. Are you consistent in your approach to exercising? What about dieting? What about doing the things you love to do. For me, playing golf is what I really love to do. What is it for you? Whatever you find that helps you be more consistent, keep…

It’s All About Me…

June 5, 2015 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

…but then again, isn’t it always? Oops, sorry about that, I was starting to sound just like my brother for a minute. Those thoughts should not be uttered aloud… even if they are the deep-down truth. Why are you going to Brick Bodies, or any other gym for that matter? If you are anything like…

Everyone Needs a Reminder Now and Then

May 13, 2014 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

This is not the blog I started to write. In fact, I tried to get back to that one this morning and just did not have the mental clarity to begin and I can track the reason why; I am what I eat. A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling more tired after a round…

Is It Spring Yet?

February 19, 2014 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

Last time I wrote, I was talking about the virtues of a new yoga class I had started to attend. This was particularly surprising since I am not usually attracted to attend exercise classes, preferring to go my own way and at my own pace. By the beginning of spring, I was looking forward to…

How to Paint a Target on your Back

November 8, 2013 By: Ron "Commish" Swanson

First order of business, this blog is to thank Corinne Williams for her suggestion to try yoga in order to increase flexibility. I have just completed my second class and, without exaggeration, I am more aware than ever before of the fact that I think I am so very much closer to being a statue…
