Thoughts on Whole Living:
Some of the most amazing moments in your life will take you by surprise. Let them.

See criticism as a lesson in disguise.

Try not to let the lure of electronics strip away your ability to be here now.

Ease your sugar intake. Look for alternative ways to bring sweetness into your life.

Don't be too quick to close doors on your future. Instead, find more to open.

Don't discount the value of simple pleasures.

Did this at home this morning in the back yard. My first attempt at "Helen":

Time: 16:54

Used a 35 lb KB. All dead hang pull-ups to the chest. I re-performed 5 that did not meet the standard. That last round of pull-ups is a bitch. I took a short rest, and then finished with:

50 Knees to Elbows
100 Sit ups
