Brighten Up and Work Out

24 May

With the sunny evenings and longer days, I’ve been enjoying every after work evening outdoors.  I’ve been riding a lot more and getting out even if just for a walk.  A little neon can’t hurt the case and this bright apparel  (shown on Chelsea below) is a great way to add a little happiness to the cause.  You can get neon tennies is almost any color now and you will be much more visible to cars passing by if you are near a road.  Try to avoid wearing dark colors or colors that blend with your surroundings if you are going to be running through streets.

Apparently, they add some good spring to your step as well 🙂

I’m loving all the neon tennis shoes!

Working out is so good for your mind and body.  Take advantage of the cooler evenings because it’s only going to get warmer for summer!

New Commitment

8 Aug

As a commuter in and out of San Francisco on a day to day basis, I made a decision in my groggy state this morning…  No more escalators or elevators!  Now this probably doesn’t seem like it would be too hard to do but on my commute I have to take at least 12 flights of stairs to accomplish this new task.

Why am I doing this?

I have a desk job which happens to be in an awesome industry but at the end of the day, I’m not any healthier because I sat at a desk for the day (with the exception of lunch time strolls : ) ).  I want to live a healthy life style and I find by committing to little things along the way (like taking stairs only) will help contribute to a happier life.  This might not work for everyone because they might not have big buildings or huge escalators to avoid but there are always little ways to improve your lifestyle for a healthier way of living!
