Make the Right Decisions for Yourself

24 Mar

Call me crazy, but sometimes the hardest person to be is yourself. I recently received an email from someone who had read this post and they wanted to share their personal Golden Rule: “never eat something to make someone else happy.” This is so important, and really could be taken even further. When it comes to health, fitness and maintaining a balanced lifestyle, you need to make the right decisions for yourself.

Don’t eat something you don’t want to just because it takes more effort to explain why you’re turning it down, you will regret it. Don’t skip a workout just because your friends make you feel guilty, its not worth it. Resolve to do what you need to do. You will be empowered by your own commitment and this will make these moments easier. Overtime people will roll their eyes less and stop hassling you. You will be happier and stronger, and they will support you more.

The Little Things

19 Mar

Sometimes it’s just the little things that make such a difference. I saw this on the sidewalk on my way to work in the morning and it had an affect on me. Something small and insignificant, something that other people probably just walked right over – I noticed it, I appreciated it, and it meant something to me. photo (28)

I have learned so many things in the last four years: about being healthy, about sacrifice, about self-respect and also about my relationships with other people and my surroundings. It isn’t always easy but the little things can really help.
