Hey FitFam! If I had to guess, I would say you are a super busy human being. You probably juggle numerous responsibilities each week, which you try to balance with at least some fragment of a social life.
If this is you, congratulations. I know society takes this essentially broad definition of being an adult for granted, but I don’t think we should. To me this means you have struck a balance between finding enjoyment with family, friends and recreational interests, while at the same time being a responsible person who contributes to the greater whole and takes pride in adding value to the world.
…I can't tell you how many times I hear "Well then I ate a cookie. Then a bag of potato chips. So I thought screw it, the week is over. I will get back on track next week…"Read More

…If you think I am not guilty of sulking over non-results from absence of work and discipline, think again. The first time I ever heard that statement I doubled over backwards. I wanted to punch myself in the face for being so arrogant, for thinking I actually deserved a hard-earned result from nothing but my laziness and lack of focus…
…Most of us act with alot of integrity at work. Despite what the media says about the sharks and the evil middle managers, etc. etc., I have met so many stand-up people who go above and beyond at their jobs. They treat people with respect in their workplace.
Managers, foremen, captains and all other bosses protect and stand up for the little guys at work, the ones with less pull than them. They are relied on, and they look out for and protect, as much as they can, the safety of everybody’s jobs…
…I remember the conversation like it was yesterday: “Lian, we just don’t have the money for an expensive prom dress…”

Do you have a morning routine? How do you typically start each day?
Does it revolve around the acquisition of coffee and chocolate-injected croissants? Or is it a bit more complex? Does your morning routine have a pre-meditated purpose or outcome, other than to just keep your eyeballs propped open?
It is said that the first task a person completes each day are directly proportional to their level of success, both professionally and personally…
Today’s blog post focuses in on dealing with a member of your household who is either intentionally or unintentionally undercutting your weight loss efforts.
More times than not it’s the latter. People don’t usually plot the demise of someone’s fitness future. That would be really weird.
So, let’s talk about the unintentional undercutting. This could be in response to:Read More
This is a loaded question and the answer is, it’s different for each person. What are your goals? What do you want to look like? What kind of exercise do you enjoy doing most? Also, what kind of time do you have to devote to exercise?Read More
You have a goal right? Everyone has at least one.
Is your goal to:
> Lose weight?
> Gain muscle?
> Lose your love handles?
> Taper down those thunder thighs?
> Get a six-pack by Summer time?
> Maintain the smokin’ hot bod you currently have?Read More
Hey Fly Tribe! Today’s message is a little out-of-the-ordinary! This story blows my mind, and is a true testament to how terrible fast food really is. Ugh.
Yesterday a friend of mine fed my dog a couple of chicken nuggets from Wendy’s…Read More
…Then fall deeper.
Fall in love with the process. Every day. Over and over.
Fall in love with your craft, and the relentless, pragmatic grind that comes with it.
Fall in love with the bigger picture. And also get wrapped up in the beautiful little details…Read More
I promised my introverts a shout out a few emails back, after my “You are too BIG” email. (In it, I attempted to highlight the similar struggles between being overweight and being a spirited extrovert.
So “introvert introspection” is what I bring to the cyber table today. Here we go…Read More
Two weeks ago, I was riding in the car with a good friend of mine. She put the guy she just starting dating on speaker phone. So of course I fired off questions. After all, what kind of non-nosy, awesome friend do you take me for? ;-) …Read More
