1. Drink plenty of Water- Drinking enough water and staying hydrated is key when it comes to staying healthy. Especially here in sunny Miami. Drinking water helps to decrease appetite as well as eliminate "I'm bored/hungry cravings." The goal is to drink half of ones body weight in ounces daily. ExtraTip- If water seems boring to you, add freshly squeezed lemon or lime for flavor as well as a dose of healthy antioxidants.
2. Cook your own meals/brown bag it- Set aside a day (I usually pick Sunday) to cook and prepare your own meals for the week.
My PEOPLE...how are you? I have to say, it does seem like I'm having a conversation with myself most of the time but I guess this is true until someone reads it. Today I want to touch on what I like to call "Fitness Alliances". What is a Fitness alliance you ask? Its people, places or things that remind you or encourage you to remember that health and wellness are now a PRIORITY in your life. Again I go back to the "know it all attitude". I am guilty of this my damn self.
Are you making the same resolution year after year? How do you break that cycle and make it actually happen this time? Everyone’s heard the stats and probably experienced it themselves—New Year’s Resolutions are made with such conviction but so often abandoned within a few months.

Good Morning Faster Fitness Family,
TGIM!! THANK GOD IT'S MONDAY!(As Eric Thomas would say)
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE Mondays. It's a start of a brand new week and I can't wait to bettermyself in all areas of life. Here is a quote for you to ponder upon...
LET'S BE HONEST................................. When it come to health and fitness I am not perfect. Sometimes I1. Eat badly2. Lack motivation3. I have "one to many"Could go on and on but I won't. You get the picture. I struggle with some of the very same things you do. But I make up for this by1. 80/20 rule. 80% good. 20% not so good.2. Training with intensity and using my whole body.3.
i really enjoy reading motivational statements. They add a little oomph in my day. At present my favorite motivational website is "Addicted2success.com".Check it out and let me know what you think.live life on purpose. Fergie.
Acknowledging that a mess was made of a situation = good. Not acknowledging that something needs to be done about it = bad. Wrestler translation: you may get in deep for a takedown, but if you don't finish and finish quickly, it is worth nothing. Life translation = implentation and follow-up is key to success.
