It’s Your 135,827th Diet: But THIS Time You Will SUCCEED

People say “don’t do it for anyone else, do it for yourself” but, with weight loss, sometimes that just isn’t enough.

Here is a simple concept: “Nothing changes if nothing changes”. WOW! What a revelation! I’m sure you already knew that, but I bet you haven’t always practiced what you’ve known.

30 Days of Motivation: Don’t Let Your Weekends Get in the Way of Your Goal

It’s time to face another weekend! Will you erase all the hard work you put in this week, or will you protect it like you’d protect your most precious belonging?

30 Days of Motivation: You Can Tough it Out

Tough Times I wish I could claim this brilliant quote, but it was actually the encouraging words from “Watson”, played by Lucy Lui, to young college girl (played by Melissa Farman) after losing her mom on Episode #11 in the new Sherlock Holms show called “Elementary” on CBS.

FITNESS MOTIVATION: Success Requires Risk

Joyce Meyer said “If you aren’t willing to get hurt, you can’t love”. Another words, love requires risks – and that same principle applies to fitness, because it too requires the risk of failure.
