Why it’s OK for people to circle the block for parking when they go to the gym

Every few months or so I see people posting in blog posts, on social media and sometimes face-to-face something to this effect: You're going to the gym. Why does it matter if you park a few spots farther away? And I used to laugh at that and then I start wondering why is that even […]

I like to think I’m in charge of my own life and decisions so without any data my answer would be: No. I don’t need tracked competition to be more active. I got it! #boom After all, I’ve been getting close to 10,000 steps per day, lost 130 pounds in recent years and bulked up […]
