1 Litre of Water a Day

I have talked about water before; it’s good for you (critically), tastes like nothing and doesn’t have the bite and sweet, crisp, carbonated drink does. But it’s super important to your brain to keep cool (literally), and I know I do not get close to 1 litre of specifically water unless I think about it. […]

Progressive Overload, I got SWOLE.

Are you just getting back into fitness or want to know more? There are so many great resources, but they can be hard to find. They are often buried beneath all the sparkly, glamorous clickbait followed by hard to understand language and science. First, anything that makes you work harder is progressive overload. Whether you […]

Fitness History & LivelyBod

Hard to believe, but it’s been half a year since I launched livelybod.com and solarfri.ca. Livelybod is my prototype of an online fitness business, built like an app through WordPress and Elementor.

What is Minimalism?

Minimalism is starting to get a bad rep and be touted as a fad. It kinda, definitely has something “faddish” about the whole thing, but there is something very interesting and intriguing about the idea and purpose. I think the reason it has built up so much steam is because people have truly benefitted and […]

Is minimalism hard?

Is minimalism hard or easy? Is it cheap or expensive. Depends on who you talk to. Buddhists, zenists, stoic’s and people who just like life with less have been living the “minimalist life for a long time – centuries. So why now, that consumerism is at an all time high and debt is through the […]
