Monkey See. Monkey Do

Seems after nine weeks the theme of Cops-n-Kilts has turned into Kids-n-Kilts. The kiddo not only loves his Boston Strong shirt, but sporting his sport wrap. He also loves going to crossfit to exercise after the big kids (adults) do.

One of the major benefit of reclaiming a healthy lifestyle is your Silent Witness. While we ache and creek and moan and stretch – others see the effort, the commitment, the progress. Now as an 18-year-old – I wanted the girl I liked to see the effort, but as life and maturity molds me – it’s the kiddo / family who are the most important observers.

That’s the legacy we can all leave our family and friends – a lifetime of living healthy.

Like any investment, it can be difficult to sustain – Example was the huge slice of chocolate doberge cake I plowed through at a restaurant last night. Oh, and then again at home before midnight.

The long haul effort over the short-term stumbles is what’s key.


1. Maintain sensible diet {Not so much}

2. Exercise at least 4 times next week {Only 2}

3. Buy new scale but not obsess over readings. {No longer a factor or temptation}

4. Encourage you to join me and share experience and commitments. {Share what was your favorite exercise this week}

5. Be positive about the quest for fitness. {Kinda lost that loving feeling this week as various deadlines loomed}

6. Crazy amount of Wall Balls this week. Oh, and I still don’t have the courage to wear those crazy finger toe shoes I bought.

Cops-N-Kilts News:

The partnership with mega-author Liliana Hart to raise money funding cancer research has kicked off and doing great. We’ve added new team members and the energy is growing. Please be a part of the effort. I promise, after the Warrior Dash (Oct 11) there will be plenty of great video to share.

I’m still not sure how she convinced us all to wear GoPro cameras – Oh the suffering.



T-Shirts are also available for sale, with all proceeds going toward our goal of $5,000.

  1. You just never know how many people you might be inspiring. Max is so cute in his gear! I was able to maintain sensible diet, but I was LAZY this week and only exercised twice. I consoled myself with the fact that the other days were spent doing useful, necessary things getting ready for fall and returning to class, but it really was laziness and not lack of time. However, with the exercise I did do, I saw a slight increase in some of my weight lifting abilities, and I’ve been playing with the tension on the elliptical, so I’m trudging through syrup, instead of eating it. 🙂
    I’m confident you’ll get back on the horse, Scott! You’ve got that Warrior Dash coming up!

    • Andrea – I apologize for delay in response – thought i hit send / or maybe i did. Ha!
      Thank you – agreed that we never know who we might inspire. we all live in a fishbowl and it’s critical to conduct ourselves in a positive manner.
      Great going on the fitness increases and the well-deserved rest.
