HEALTH MATTERS: Creating a Happy Thyroid & Testosterone

Finding a solution to health problems can be frustrating — very frustrating. Especially, when you’ve dealt with that problem for years with almost no solution. And, when you go to a doctor who should know a thing or two about that issue — they’re no help. That’s the time you take a self analysis of the situation and basically say — “screw it, I’m doing this my way!” Well, that’s where I am at with…

The case of the lost FitBit …

Um, I lost my FitBit. And, I wish this was a sick joke I am playing on myself — but it isn’t. Somewhere between the bus and my office yesterday — I lost it. I am assuming it simply fell off, unless I was somehow unknowingly pick pocketed by some sly criminal shaking my hand. But, it’s gone. Nowhere here. Nowhere there. And, after checking — nowhere over there either. It’s gone. It’s lost. And,…

Fight4Phat: On the never ending quest to a balanced thyroid …

Even though I might hate Monday holidays — I sure love short weeks. Makes the week bearable and of course … the weekend gets here closer. It’s been a good week. A purposeful week. A focused week. Yes, I’ve gotten my runs and workouts in — but that’s not what I am talking about. I am more focused in finding a solution — once and for all — for my thyroid issues. As I’ve rehashed…

Phat Tuesday: #SquadGoals, the weekend and some other stuff …

After a long busy week last week — this past weekend was very much a reprieve. A much, much needed reprieve and breather. It was full of visits with my Dad, workouts, runs, temple sessions and ghost hunts. Quite the variety. My Dad got out of the hospital on Friday and is now in a rehab center here in Bountiful. He’ll be there for at least the next six weeks before having another surgery to…

Fight4Phat: The ‘Phat Josh’ Rules

As you’ve read from my other posts — it’s been quite the week. It’s been a crazy week with my Dad’s surgery and hospital stay — among other things. But, at the same time, it’s been a good week. It wasn’t exactly what I envisioned with my fitness and workouts — but, I got my training runs in on Tuesday and last night. Not to mention I also played a killer game of Churchball last…

PhatTuesday: How to prepare for the unexpected — and thrive

Once again — here we are on another Phat Tuesday. Well, okay — technically this is the second Phat Tuesday. But, still — I feel like old friends. I am not going to rehash a lot of what’s been going on the past couple of days — you can read all about here. But, for those not wanting to click on the link, here are the Clif’s Notes. My Dad has been in the hospital…

After a long weekend, today is a much needed Monday

My Dad was admitted into the hospital last night, a few days ahead of his scheduled knee replacement of his knee… Posted by Joshua O. Snow Hansen on Saturday, January 9, 2016 It’s not every day I look forward to a Monday, but after this past weekend — it’s been a much needed reprieve after a long weekend. As noted above, my Dad was admitted to the hospital on Friday night to start an IV and…

PhatTuesday: Starting off the New Year on the right foot

I won’t lie — these posts seem kinda cliche. It’s the new year, new goals, new focus, etc., etc., etc. I have a love/hate relationship with the new year because of that. How do you make good resolutions? And, when are you overreaching on your resolutions — and I guess to an extent under reaching? The past couple of years I’ve kind of stepped away from making specific new goals at the start of the year. Instead,…
