Jan 1: A NEW Plan for a NEW You this NEW Year

New Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Different We are starting a new year! Before I tackle today’s subject of setting fitness goals and getting ready to conquer this new year, I want to share some more personal stuff about myself, what I’m learning and what God is continuing to teach me. As I woke up eager to …

How to Have a Wiser, Healthier, Happier 2016

Why do many New Year’s Resolutions fade away? I believe it’s because they are based on emotion. We get emotional after the holidays. We “feel” fat. We spent too much money. We didn’t do everything we should, see everyone we could. We reflect on the year and realize another year has passed and we didn’t …

Awake the Beast

To Beast or Not to Beast One of the hardest challenges in life is practicing self-discipline. We spend our whole day trying not to “wake the beast” when it comes to controlling our desires and emotions, like fear and anger. Yet, you go to the gym and everyone is talking about the “Beast” and going “Beast Mode”.

Good Choice, Bad Choice, It’s Your Choice

When Steve text me yesterday “About to do cardio unless you want to run some sprints at home”. My first thought was “I need to run”, but my body said “I don’t want to run. It’s late. It’s going to be hot. It’s going to suck”. BUT, I typed “I’ll run with you!” before I could …

Iron Sharpens Iron, In and Out of the Gym

Fitness has really changed over the years. It is no longer a one, or two, person thing. Going to the gym used to be a solo sport (like bodybuilding). It used to mean going to the gym alone, getting on a treadmill alone and hitting the weights alone – or if you are lucky, you’d …

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 …
