We do it to save ....

  • Creating your happiness <3

    Creating your happiness <3

    A lot of people have a problem with happiness: They think they don’t deserve it! Is that you? Are you not good enough to be happy? Do you feel unworthy somehow? Or is it something you’re working really hard to get, and maybe someday if you keep trying…?_ Sometimes we just need a reminder that we’re good enough to be happy. Worthy enough. And that happiness isn’t a goal we march toward grimly. Because it’s not about being a certain weight, or being able to do this or that, or having something or someone. Happiness is about acceptance. When we accept things as they are, then we can begin deciding what to work on… what to work toward… ....

  • Free Your Mind – And Results Will Follow

    Free Your Mind – And Results Will Follow

    I talk to people all the time who want to get in better shape, lose weight, or embrace a healthier lifestyle. And it’s amazing how often they follow up their desire with a list of reasons why they can’t possibly succeed. “I’m just big boned, so there’s nothing I can do.” “I was terrible in gym class, so I know I’d just fail again.” “Everyone in my family is heavy, so I just have to accept myself like this.” It goes on and on, and it’s natural, to a degree. BUT IT DRIVES ME CRAZY! Because I know what nonsense it is. These are all examples of self-limiting beliefs that too many of us have. They hold us back ....

  • Look out for each other

    Look out for each other

    It’s been a tough 21 months on everyone, and sometimes it seems like nothing’s going to get better out there. All over the world and here at home, people are worn out, stressed, and confused, right? Sometimes it feels like there’s nothing we can do. But there is. And that’s simple: We’ve gotta look out for each other. Reaching out to help someone else, or even just checking on them with a friendly phone call, immediately lifts you out of your own troubles. And it instantly makes the world a better place, even if it’s “only” in a small way. You never know how your moment of kindness will affect the other person, or how he or she might pay it ....

  • This story blew me away

    This story blew me away

    have you ever heard of Hidilyn Diaz? She’s a weightlifter from the Philippines. I hadn’t heard of her until the Olympics. One of the best things about the Games (beyond watching the amazing athletes in action) are the inspirational stories, don’t you agree? Hidilyn’s story is one of my favorites. Talk about an underdog. Basically, everything was stacked against her. When she was young and just starting out in weightlifting, she didn’t even have any actual weights to train with or lift. So she used plastic pipes and concrete blocks as her weights, and later “graduated” to duffel bags stuffed with water jugs. She would do pull-ups on door ....

  • “Ready” isn’t a thing

    “Ready” isn’t a thing

    Let’s just get to it. The idea of being “ready” is unrealistic for making healthy choices as adults. Why? Because we can’t always be “ready.” And if we insist on waiting until we are, then we might be waiting forever. When we’re planning to adopt healthy habits like exercising and eating right, this ideal state of being “ready” usually doesn’t come. Instead, we have to start taking the actions we need to take, and from that comes the sense that we’re doing what we “should” be doing. You’ve heard the expression “fake it till you make it,” right? It just means: Do the right thing, even if you ....
