I hear it all the time now. “I can’t lose weight because of X.” “I can’t reach my goals beacuse of Y”. “Life word be so much better if Z happens”. It’s so easy. Many people do not take responsibility anymore. They blame others or circumstances for their shortcomings. So many people do not shoulder the blame for their situation. They would rather slough it off to someone else to make it easier on themselves.
Hi all! Firstly, I would like to thank you all for faithfully following my posts. It has been a pleasure sharing my thoughts on this medium. I am excited that I have collaborated with a designer to create a new logo! I am revealing it here exclusively to my readers first. Slowly but surely, I will add this logo to my social media and personal branding. Thank you for your support!
“It’s a great advantage not to drink among hard drinking people.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
“No blame: the most liberating and empowering day of my life was the day I freed myself from my own self-destructive nonsense” -Steve Maraboli
“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” -Walt Disney
I am not sure what your goals are. If you’re reading this, I hope you are making attempts to change your lifestyle and ultimately your health status. If you are looking to lose some weight, this chapter is for you. Also, if you have a few drinks every so often, this chapter is especially for you.
Our society celebrates by drinking excessively OFTEN. There is something going on all the time. The temptation is there to drink to excess constantly. There are so many drinks to choose from: beer, wine, mixed drinks, shots. They will satisfy you no matter your taste in adult beverage choices.
However, drinking adult beverages does NOT help with weight loss. Most drinks are high in carbs or sugar. They are high in calories and not much else. Our bodies absorb and breakdown alcohol first. So, when we eat with alcohol, our bodies do not absorb the vital nutrients our bodies need. Instead, it absorbs the high calories of the drinks!
Do yourself a favor. If you are looking to lose weight, drop the drinks. Choose low calorie alternatives instead:
If you cut out a few drinks a week, you will be astounded of the results you see in a few weeks. As Always, Eat, Move, Improve!
“Trust yourself…dig deep down and ask yourself who you want to be? Not what, but who?” -Arnold Schwarzzeneggar
“Dig deep and believe in yourself and have the self-confidence you need to forge ahead.” -Katie Ciouric
“The rewards of the wild and the rewards of the survivor go to those who can dig deep, and, ultimately, to the guy who can stay alive.” -Bear Grylls
We live in a society that puts such emphasis on superficial things and external motivations. We like items and people for how they look. We only do things for a promised external reward. Days seem like a rat race to get more and more.
This approach can work in the short term. We focus on the outside motivators and get rewarded through our work and in relationships. We find the most attractive partner and the beginning is bliss. However, these outside rewards have an expiration date. They do not have lasting effects and aren’t sustainable in the long term. Beauty fades and toys break. That’s how it works.
I encourage you to look inside. Look for your internal motivators. Search oyur heart, mind, and soul for those factors that push oyu when you have nothing. When you don’t feel like gong, when you don;t have energy, when you hit an obstacle. Find what motivates you to make your way towards your goals without any outside force pushing you. Once you find that, you will win! As Always, Eat, Move, and Improve!
Hi friends! I am looking to nail down a more professional logo for my blog. I am using a platform called DesignCrowd to collect logo designs from visual design professionals. I was surprised of how many submissions I collected in a few days! Can you help me decide by taking this poll? I appreciate your feedback!
