I am pretty sure I came out of the womb on some kind of diet because as far back as I can remember I was on a diet.
As a kid, my parents and family were always reminding me of how fat I was with every mouthful. They watched everything I ate and frequently made comments about how much I ate and how big I was.
When I was 25 years old I weighed 315 pounds and had failed on every diet in the book. I remember feeling almost hopeless and wondering how I was going to drag my heavy body around another day. Clearly, popular diets weren’t the answer for me. That’s when I made the life-changing decision to begin exercising, and I have never looked back. Today I can’t imagine my life without fitness at the very center. But sometimes it’s hard to get moving. Here are 5 tips that will get you off of the couch and motivated:
Wow! It was a great summer this year. Had the opportunity to spend some time in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico and train a great deal there. That place has to be one of the most ideal training locations in the world. Even in July it was not overly hot if you were able to train in the morning. The cool breeze coming off the ocean was refreshing. Very little traffic and very friendly locals.
I couldn't sleep the other night and found myself tossing and turning. What was on my mind? Well, not what you are thinking. That is for sure. I was thinking of training schedules. I know, I need to get out more often. However, with a six month old and a six year old in need of constant attention getting out often isn't much of an option. Neither is a lot of time for training. Hence, my reason for insomnia.
Change Your Behavior In the area of life balance, there are three pivotal things that you should do. 1. Align your expectations with reality and with the universal principles that create the positive results you want to achieve. 2. Prioritize the one or two activities you feel will bring the greatest return in your situation.
I broke my ribs 12 days ago (don't ask!) and now I am incoherent from a lack of sleep. It has been difficult to sleep when it feels like I am being stabbed to death by a raging Chuckie doll. I am someone who has always gotten my 7.5 hours+ of sleep in. Do you get your sleep in? Without it, I am finding it difficult to type without tons of errors or put two thoughts together.I am also crabby and can't stop thinking about eating.
