Diet Motivation: Tame the Tongue (and the Belly!)

“Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.” Proverbs 21:23 Isn’t this verse the truth!! Of course it’s talking about our speech and the words we choose, but our tongue gets us in a lot more trouble than just our words. Our tongue leads us to tasty treats off our diet, …

Fail Yesterday, Succeed Today

Too many people let their past failures define them. They dieted before and failed, so they believe they are doomed to never lose weight. They joined a gym before and quit going, so they fear they’ll just waste their money again the next time. They have a tendency to be lazy, selfish, and lack self …

Want to lose weight? Are you the kind of person who would just do better if someone else would cook for you, or at least just tell you what to eat? You aren’t alone. It’s called being lazy – and we ALL have a lazy bone that wishes dieting could be easier. Are we really going to …

People do NOT like the word diet. It’s like a bad 4-letter word that’s offensive in all countries. Everyone has a different definition of diet. I admit I use the word all the time, but I never think of it as a bad thing. To me, diet means results. It means healthy food, smart food. It means …

How to Give the Devil a Black Eye

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. When life throw it’s toughest punches, it’s human instinct to punch back. However, the best reaction is not always your first reaction. Next time you feel attacked by people, work, finances or trials, the best medicine is to do something great. Fight stress by focusing …

The Strong Keep Trying

OK, can I get a count by lifting your hands: Who wants to be weak? I’m pretty sure no one is raising their hand right now. No one is jumping up and down saying “Meeee! Meee!” No one wants to be weak. People want to be STRONG! And even if they are not strong, they …

Run After Your Dreams (literally)

Seriously, this is SO ME!  As I lay in bed, I think of all the things I should have done and need to do the next day. I think of what I will do better and what I will quit doing. I reflect on both my failures and my successes. Since snacking at night is …
