Acceptance & Authenticity

Just a reminder that you can’t please everyone, but if you keep your head up and keep your eyes on your goals, you can learn to be happy with yourself!

The Richness of a Simple Life

Those of us who aren’t lucky enough to live in a warm, tropical paradise often face a tricky dilemma:

  1. We want to go outside and run, bike, or play sports to get our cardio in.
  2. It’s been snowing for two days and we don’t feel like getting frostbite.
  3. We aren’t lucky enough to own in-home gym equipment, like a treadmill.

Reblog – How to Commit To The Gym

This one’s an easy read and hits 3 key points on the head. In particular, knowing WHY you are committing to the gym (or anything) is going to make it easier to keep going when you want to quit. Also, turning it into a lifestyle change as opposed to a fad or temporary hardship does wonders for the way you approach exercising.

How to get your steps in at an office job

I don’t know about you guys, but I work an 8 to 5 desk job that isn’t really conducive to getting in my 10,000 steps a day. Especially during the last two months my company has been extremely busy, meaning that most days I can go 2 or 3 hours straight without leaving my chair.

Inspirational Songs (Part 2)

This next song is one I’ve been loving for a few months now. It’s called “Impossible Is Nothing” by Iggy Azalea. Think what you will about the woman herself, but if you’re looking for inspiration give the song a try.

It doesn’t hurt to know Iggy’s story – she grew up in Australia (possibly in poverty, as she hints at in her other music) and dropped out of high school. Instead of going to school, she chose to work her ass off to get the money to fly to the birthplace of rap – the United States. She knew she’d be close to her passion there, and she made a name for herself through her hard work and single-minded dedication.

My new personal record

Ugh, it’s been a busy week, but somehow it seems to be taking an eternity to pass! I wanted to update you guys on my recent runs, including the one last Wednesday where I made my own personal record!

I jogged 2.01 miles in 32.38 minutes, which is way faster than anything I’ve done before!

Talk Less, Do More. Actions Speak for themselves.

Here’s an awesome post about moving from taking the talk to actually walking the walk!

Staying healthy isnt a crime-Fitness is a lifestyle choice

How can I say this politely without offending anyone, hmm? Talk less and do more. Sounds easy enough, but guess how many people say they will do something and talk a big game, but when the time comes, hey.. they are still talking about it and yet haven’t taken any action. 

We all like to talk about goals, talk about doing vacations and talk about losing weight, eating healthier, driving the speed limit, and what not, but as soon as the time comes where we need to take action, we don’t. We end up regretting it 30 days later and then end up starting where we were: talking a good game but still haven’t done shit about it. The majority of people who “talk” more are talking because they are hoping that someone will enable them to do it, give them a reason to do whatever it is they want…
