You Can Suck – and Still Succeed

fitness failure

I apologize in advance for using such an informal edgy title, but “stink” didn’t cut it – and it didn’t rhyme with success. LOL As I was searching for synonyms for “suck”, I discovered where the word came from. Jazz musicians would compliment a horn player by saying “wow, he can really blow!” Since I play trumpet, …

Fitness Motivation: Ordinary People Do the Extraordinary

When we see photos of fitness competitors and professional athletes, it can be very motivating for some people – but very discouraging for others. It’s easy to set ourselves apart from the professionals, or from people we think we can’t relate to, and think to ourselves “I could never do that”.  But, when I see someone with my …

Fixed On Food? 5 Steps to Freedom

We all have to eat, but are we living to eat or do we eat to live – and live life well? Meaning, is food Lord over our life or is it just part of life. Sometimes I think we give food way too much power. This morning I was reading the passage “…choose for yourselves …

Monday Motivation: Seek and You Will Find

One of the biggest obstacles I come across most is people not being honest with themselves. Cients often try to convince me of how healthy they eat and how they are doing everything right but they just can’t lose weight. They think they are just an exception to the rule.

Pitiful or Powerful: You Choose

Most of the time, our biggest enemy is our own self. Our mind fills us with thoughts of doubt, fear, despair and discouragement. As Joyce Meyer loves to say, “you can’t be pitiful and powerful at the same time.” You simply can’t be a victim and a fighter. The only way you can power through …

Fit To Fat To Fit: What a Jerk

On of viewer’s favorite lines in Steve and Tasha’s Fit To Fat To Fit episode was when Steve huffed and puffed (and wheezed) through his first workout. Personally, I was amazed at the resounding response, “now he knows how it feels”. On the night the show initially aired, Crush ♥On ♥You ‏@HotMadLegend tweeted “for the love of god & …

JAN 29: Get Pfit – No Trainer Needed

Of COURSE, having a trainer can help people reach their goals, (that’s what I do! So obviously I know our value) but why and how do they help? Is it their knowledge? Sure, knowledge is helpful, but there is endless information online that can give you the same information. Is it their equipment? Sure, equipment can definitely …
