New Season New Reason

 

 
     Welcome Spring!  This is a time of renewal and growth.  It's when all of Mother Nature is having a party.  Plants come back to life.  Colors are restored in nature.  The flowers bloom and farmlands activate.  The air is fresh and Spring rains cleanse and replenish the earth.
 
     This same feeling can come over us.  The days are longer and warmer.  The sun seems brighter and is higher in the sky.  We feel like doing something.  Cleaning the house, working in the yard, taking a long walk, and getting outside become regular plans.
 
     Our bodies can feel a bit sluggish and weak having been slowed during the winter months.  Maybe we weren't quite as consistent with the winter workouts and disciplined eating over the winter.  Now we can make some changes that will get our body moving in the right direction.  By summer we can be leaner, smaller, and more energetic.
 
     The next three months can have a profound effect on our health and body composition.  Take a few minutes and sit down to write out some Springtime goals.  Make it a short list of what you must accomplish with your health over this Spring Season.  Next, take each of the goals and write several action steps that must be done daily to achieve the results you want.
 
     Make a simple flow chart or log to check your progress each and every day.  Log some vital statistics like body weight, percent body fat, percent lean tissue, water intake, minutes and intensity of physical activity, along with how you are feeling each day.
 
     By summertime, you will have reduced your body weight by 15 to 30 pounds. Your clothes will fit better and will down a couple of sizes.  Your energy level will be high and you will feel better, look better, and show the world that you are in charge of your body and your life.
 
     We overestimate what we are capable of doing in a month; however, we underestimate what we can do in 3months.  Set a goal deadline for the fourth of July.  Get focused, get busy, and get leaner.  This is the time.  This is your life and your health we are talking about.  Strive to become the healthiest you've been in years.  It's time to Spring into action.  You Can Do This!

The Path to Excellence

We are all on a path through life.  In fact, we get to choose the path we take.  As we travel down the path there are many forks and turn offs to other paths. 

Self Talk

We all talk to ourselves.  There have  been times when I thought, "Am I the only one who talks to myself and am I crazy?" 

Regrets

My mentor Jim Rohn stated:  " We all must suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.  The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons".

Personal Power

We are in control.  I realize that many people don't believe this.  When I say we are in control, I'm talking about control of our lives and our actions. 

Adventure

Our days have become pretty routine.  The time we get up, when we eat, our work, what we do in our spare time, the shows we watch on TV, the friends we have, and even the clothes we wear are pretty unchanging.

Testosterone in Women

When most people talk about sex hormones, they discuss estrogen and progesterone for women and testosterone for men.
