10 goals that will help you stick with your plans to get fit

10 goals that will help you stick with your plans to get fit

Everyone knows that eating better and getting more active will help you lose weight and get healthier, but what very few people know is that there are a lot of little actions that you can take that will make these two things easier. Telling an obese 300lb man to diet and exercise is a lot like telling a fish not breathe water, 1 it doesn’t make any sense to the person you are telling it to, and 2, it they have no clue how to do these things. I am not going to cover what to eat in this post, but here is a great post if that is what you are looking for. Today I want to cover goals and interventions that you can place into your life that will enable you, and make you more likely to actually stick with diet and exercise. I have found that most of the people I work with already know what foods that they should and shouldn’t eat, and most of them already know they should lift weights, do cardio, or get more active, and even if they don’t, they can hire a personal trainer or ask a friend about what to eat.  What most people I work with really need is a plan.   What the hell am I talking about?  Is this some sort of secret underground cult brainwashing technique to lose weight and get healthy? Well, no, not exactly, but it is about the little things that you can do underneath the obvious to fix what is broken. See, telling someone who is 300lbs to eat healthy and...

Boost your brain power with these 10 super foods.

Brain power is one of the most important powers that we have, after all, our brain pretty much determines everything. Our brain decides what we do, how effective we are, and if our bodies are going to continue to function or not on a daily basis, so shouldn’t we aim to be good to our brains? If you are looking to spoil your brain and treat it right, try this list of the top 10 brain boosting foods and aim to make these foods a part of your everyday routine!   Coffee Coffee might be one the most healthy foods in the American diet, and despite some claims (outdated claims) that coffee and caffeine are bad for you, almost all the new studies are showing the same thing: that coffee decreases the risk of diseases. The caffeine in coffee boosts your brain’s effectiveness, while the high amount of antioxidants promotes brain health and a circulation boost. Don’t skip the coffee today, your brain will thank you later!   Green Tea Green tea features many of the same benefits as coffee, just with a lower caffeine content when compared to coffee. Green tea can speed the metabolism, increase circulation, and increase mental alertness.

Buy your dark chocolate at a minimum of 70% dark, with the higher the percentages being the best for you. Chocolate is a super healthy treat,...

10 things you should definitely know about love

10 things you should definitely know about love

These days it seems like love has given up on mankind. The divorce rate is soaring up over 50%, marriage’s average life-span shortens each day, and our world is full of jaded people with closed off hearts, but there is still that little sparkle in the eye of the person you love and you are going to go for it anyway. Good for you! But, you need to know a few things about love. Whether you are 35 and recently divorced or 19 and in love for the first time, love is and will be an incredibly challenging event. Most of the people you talk to who were married for 60 years will tell you the secret is hard work, love, or a combination of the two. So what lessons do you need to learn before you hop onto the roller coaster that we call love?   Love takes courage Love might be one of the scariest things that you can possibly embark upon. I know that I have competed in MMA, fought all over the country in martial arts competitions, quit my job to move across the country for a new possibility, started several blogs, and lots of other crazy things, but by far, the craziest and most vulnerable I have ever felt has been in love. Loving someone takes a level of vulnerability that many of us just don’t feel capable of, and while it can be scary, if you want to bask in the glory of love, you are going to have to risk getting burned. If you can’t open up to the possibility of harm,...
8 reasons to stop comparing yourself to others.

8 reasons to stop comparing yourself to others.

How many times have you been told not to compare yourself to others? But why is it so important, why do so many people regularly say “Don’t compare yourself to others?”. In all honesty, nothing positive can truly come from comparing yourself to others, and it will almost always leave you feeling either downtrodden and dejected, or it could even leave you feeling over confident and poised for a fall. One thing’s for sure, comparing yourself to others isn’t helpful or productive, so why do it at all? So here are 8 reasons that comparing yourself to others is totally and completely stupid.   Everyone is unique Truth be told, everybody is different. Sure people may have similarities, they may have things in common, and they may even share a ton of like qualities alike, but they are still ultimately different people. Comparing yourself to someone else is like comparing an apple to an orange, you might be able to say which one you prefer, but which is better, and what measurements are you using to gauge which one is really better? Just like you can’t say definitively that an apple is better than orange, you can’t say that one person is better than another: it really just boils down to two totally different things that you truly can’t compare.   Life isn’t a race against others, it’s a race against time. Comparing yourself to others is treating life like a competition against others, and that just isn’t what life is all about. We can choose to compete with others, but life doesn’t care where you are in relation...
