What Choice Do You Make Today?

DannyThere is a truth that exists in this world–no one owes you anything.  It doesn’t matter if you are different, odd, weird, pretty, ugly, successful, smart, dumb, etc.  Life owes you zero, nada, nothing, zilch.  You can pout and complain all you want, but it isn’t going to change your circumstances.

You can hope, wish and beg.

Ultimately you have a decision to make.  Will you be the hunter or will you be the hunted?  Are you a wisher or are you a doer?  And make no mistake about it, it is a decision.  Trust me when I say that there have been people far worse off than most of my readers who have dug themselves out of less than nothing to reach their goals.

Which choice do you make today?  Do you get outside today and walk even though your legs scream at you to stop?  Do you choose to eat some vegetables today instead of fast food?  Do you choose to eliminate pay television today in order to reduce your debt?  Do you choose to read the Power of Habit today instead of watching television?

What do you choose today?

12 week transformation challenge is set

Getting Fit For Forty!

Getting Fit For Forty

Image-1

As you can see from the image, I am just over 11 weeks until I head of to Ibiza for my stag do. What better reason is there to fully commit to a transformation challenge and try to finally achieve that six pack that i have been wishing for as far back as i can remember?

This of course coupled with the fact that I most certainly dont want to look fat for my wedding pics has further fueled my determination to secure this goal. If you have looked at my previous posts, this is not the first time i have looked to do this. I have tried a large number of times over recent years to the point where i feel like i am on some kind of constant diet. Whether i have been training for the boxing or taking part in the No More Bolics challenge I have…

Hi friends ..!!!

Seeming the same like your old teenage days is a dream for almost everyone, when we did’nt have any weight issues or have to undergo strict diet plans. We ate without restrictions. But as we grow , our lifestyle becomes sedantary, our healthy diets changes to ‘eating by choice’. Consequently , obesity overpowers us..And then begins our endless battle with weight , where we are always at the failing end.

So below are a few simple methods to inculcate in your daily routine, to loose weight effectively. Hope they will help.

And yess!!! The important thing is that you need not follow a strict diet plan and punish your self.

Lukewarm Water Drinking Therapy-Drinking a glassfull of lukewarm water early mornings empty stomach, helps in dissolving the extra fats . Also having warm water after meals , prevents the absorption of fats present in your foods…

Why Is It So Hard to Make Dreams Come True?

I am not surprised at the number of people who never live the life they want to live; or at least live the life they fantasize about in their mind.  There’s a lot that goes into making a mental image become something tangible.  Someone once said that making dreams come true isn’t easy or cheap which is why Disney is so darn expensive!  And although it is a joke, making a dream become something real is not easy and definitely not cheap.

If you don’t believe the words I have just typed, then take your own time and conduct interviews of people you know.  Begin with a few people you know who have dedicated themselves and lost a lot of weight.  Then interview small business owners.  Then interview a local city council member.  Then interview your boss.  If you speak to these people and ask them to tell you their story some common themes will quickly develop.

“It took a lot of work.”

“There were a lot of setbacks and challenges.”

“There were times when I wanted to give up, but I didn’t.”

“My family had to make a lot of sacrifices to help me reach my goals.”

“There were times when I was scared.”

What separates those who take action and reach goals from those who do not?  Why are there haves and have-nots?   Why do some people talk about hitting the lottery while others go out and dig their “lottery” out of the dirt?  I really don’t know if there is an exact answer, but I think I have a clue-unquenchable desire.

Ultra-successful people tend to be incredibly self-aware.  They tend to listen more than they speak.  They exercise and eat the right types of quality foods.  They do what they say they will do.  They are honest with themselves.  They set goals.  They refuse to fail.

The awesome thing is these attributes can all be developed, but only a select few embrace them.  Which side of the equation do you fall?  The under-achiever or the over-achiever?  I think I’m somewhere in the better than average group, but building my rocket ship each day!

Healthy Living Update – 11/12/16

Healthy-Living

For those who have followed me since the beginning you know that I once posted every week about my transition to a healthier lifestyle.  After a while I became bored with posting about health so I continued to live my lifestyle, but stopped posting.  Now I have been inspired to post each week about my progress as I aim to reach a new goal of 165 pounds.

Last week I weighed in at the doctor’s office at 185 pounds and set a goal for yesterday’s weigh-in at 183 lbs.  I am happy so say I recorded a weight of 181.6 lbs.  I did a good job of watching my calories, walking Bentley a couple of times at night and did not drink my calories.  Honestly I believe eliminating calorie drinks made a huge difference.  Needless to say I am thrilled!

So this week I am setting my goal at 180 lbs.  I understand that it is not the healthiest thing to lose a lot of weight each week so I will make sure I eat 2000 calories each day and drink plenty of water.  Plenty of calories will ensure my energy level stays high and remains consistent.

How is your healthy living going?  Nonexistent?  Remember you only have one body so try to take care of it!

Healthy Living Update – 11/5/16

Healthy-Living

A few weeks ago I updated everyone on my current healthy living progress, which has not been the greatest.  I have decided to post my updates on Saturdays instead of Tuesdays so here goes…

I weighed in at the doctor’s office at a 3 pound loss over the last two weeks; I currently stand at 185 pounds.  I have been keeping my strategy simple by logging and tracking my calories.  I have yet to begin any type of exercise other than walking Bentley due to dealing with allergies.

My goal for Friday, 11/11, is to weigh-in at 183 lbs.  I know this is an aggressive goal but I have a good amount of fat on my belly which should burn quickly.  I have introduced more fruit and veggies and reduced sugars.  My overall goal is to be under 178 lbs. by the end of 2016.
