Enjoy the Process

This weekend I heard some really great speakers at a local Advocare program. But don't worry, you aren't about to read a 500 page sales letter for Advocare! The major concept that I took away from this event was to enjoy the process. Too often I set my sights on a goal and obsess over it until I either achieve it or give up. Lately, there have been way too many goals that I have abandoned. Ther...

Don’t Be so Hard on Yourself!

Don't Be so Hard on Yourself!  You're trying to lose weight, you feel like you're going nowhere, the scale may not be moving, and then the next thing you know you stop trying to be healthy altogether. I have seen so many people go through this cycle. You aren't quitting because you have no willpower. You aren't quitting because you just love carbs too much to diet.

What Makes You Happy?

What Makes You Happy? Money? Success? Sunny weather? Spending time with your family? While all of the above items may be able to temporarily make you happy, I doubt any of them would bring eternal happiness to your life.

First, let me say that I hope I am wrong. I hope that you do lose weight. I hope that you do reach your goals. So much so that I developed a journal to help you do so! However, unless you make some changes, no amount of journaling is going to get that weight off. I want to talk (rant) a minute about your goals, actions, and values. Do your actions align with your values? How do you spend ...

Losing Weight Just Got Easier

Losing Weight Just Got Easier! What's your biggest barrier to losing weight? It's likely that you are getting in your own way. I sure know that I get in my way sometimes! We set big motivating goals, work at them for a week or two, maybe even a month, but then slowly we put our goal in the back of our mind and stop taking action towards it. Let's face it, it's way easier to stay the same than it ...

The One Change You Have to Make to Reach Your Goals

What are your standards? How low can your bank account get before you start to panic? 100 dollars? 1,000 dollars? 100,000 dollars? How high will you let your weight get before you start to take action? How little will you allow yourself to workout each week?  How much effort do you give at work, at home, or at the gym? The answer to all of these questions has to do with the standards that you s...

The Simpliest Thing You Can Do to Reach Your Goals

The Simpliest Thing You Can Do to Reach Your Goals Let me start by stating that reaching your goals should not be easy. If it is, then you aren't setting the bar high enough for yourself! The goals you set should push you to your limits physically and emotionally.  These goals should be backed by a clearly defined purpose and "why?".  Your "why?" is the ultimate reason behind your actions, the mo...

The Ultimate App for Boosting Productivity and Achieving Great Things

If you are like me you probably have about 15-1000 things you have to do on a daily basis.

However, I have found a great app that will help you manage your tasks, goals, and to-do items. The app is called Wunderlist. Check it ...
