#49 Health Blog – Getting The Mind Right

Good Morning!

I’ve been writing about “getting my mind right” in the past couple health blogs. How we think about our bodies is just as important as how we treat our bodies, maybe even more.

How we think affects how we take action regarding certain things, so it makes sense that changing our thinking should be a huge part of any major change.… Read More “#49 Health Blog – Getting The Mind Right”

#48 Personal Freedom Requires Discipline

Good Morning!

I was up really early today, 4 am early.

If you want more freedom in your life, you need more discipline.

If you type that line into google search, you’re going to
get a lot of results.  There is so much
to think and write about regarding freedom.

Whenever I hear someone use the word freedom, I’m reminded
of the meme where there is a bald eagle standing outside a windowed door with
the caption: “Excuse me sir, but do you have a moment to talk about freedom?”.… Read More “#48 Personal Freedom Requires Discipline”

#47 Health Blog – Please Pass The Poison

Good Morning!

On Sunday I wrote about how shedding body fat is a by product of a fundamental mindset change from fat-minded thinking to fit-minded thinking which is part and parcel of a healthy lifestyle.

Once you change your mind everything will just fall into place
with a bit of education.

I’d like to think that there is a lot more to it than that,
but besides just figuring out what a healthy lifestyle is for you, there really
isn’t.… Read More “#47 Health Blog – Please Pass The Poison”

#46 Take One Day At A Time

Good Morning!

Have you ever been stressed out or overwhelmed with everything you have going on in your life?

I remember my parents passing down this age-old piece of wisdom a long time ago when I was dealing with some work-related stress.

Just take it one day at a time.

Focus on today’s issues, problems, activities, or whatever else it is you’re going through and leave tomorrow’s thoughts for tomorrow.… Read More “#46 Take One Day At A Time”

#45 Health Blog – Consistency Is Key

Good Morning!

When you figure out what works best for you, consistency is
the key to long term success, and that’s true with everything, not just diet
and exercise.

My obesity story is the same old story: always a larger
person, been overweight since childhood, and I have some pretty deep rooted
psychological diet related issues just like everyone else.

I’m one of those people who only has to look a picture of food to put on weight.… Read More “#45 Health Blog – Consistency Is Key”

#44 Good Things Happen When The Chain Reaction Starts

Good Morning!

I can’t believe it’s already been a month while at the same time it feels so normal now.

I’ve been making my bed every single morning for a solid month and let me tell you, it’s had a huge impact in my life already.  The change was so subtle and yet it’s so different now.

I know what you’re thinking:

“Oh please not another post about making your bed.… Read More “#44 Good Things Happen When The Chain Reaction Starts”

#43 Health Blog – Why Failure is OK

Good Morning!

Well, as you might might have guessed from the title of the post today, I didn’t finish exactly what I had planned.

Tuesday wasn’t a horrible day for fasting, but I felt kinda off right when I woke up. That’s not unusual and what the morning coffee is for. As the day pressed on I developed headache and then finally, some digestive distress.… Read More “#43 Health Blog – Why Failure is OK”

#41 Health Blog – Why Fasting Isn’t Starving

Good Morning!

I’ll be fasting all day today.  That will make it 33 hours from yesterday at 11pm until tomorrow morning at 8am. 

I’m testing out every-other-day fasting routine to see how it feels and works for me. Testing things out is how you figure out what works and doesn’t work for you and sometimes the process sucks.

You typically want to stop eating at least 3 hours before sleep time.… Read More “#41 Health Blog – Why Fasting Isn’t Starving”

#40 Get Your Mind On The Move

Good Morning!

I think it’s really important to exercise your mind on a daily basis because I believe that the saying “if you don’t use it, you lose it”, has some basis here.

About a year ago or so I needed to do some work with a CAD
(computer aided drafting) work with program I used almost every day for about
seven years while I was a draftsman full time. … Read More “#40 Get Your Mind On The Move”
