Take Control of Right Now to Improve Your Fitness, Health, and Life

Right now is what you and I have to work with. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is our hopeful future, which leaves today. Failing to make the most of now is really a detriment to your fitness, health, and life. What you do today impacts all your tomorrows. Agreed?

Going through difficult injuries and personal struggles have given me a whole new outlook on appreciating the moment. How about you? Your past circumstances may have been tough, and life sometimes still can be. Regardless, each day is about taking control of right now and becoming your best self.

Procrastination is one of the many reasons we're not taking care of today. It takes your moment to be healthy and minimizes it as a priority. Yet, many of us continue down the road of excuses and choose to postpone doing what needs to be done now to get fit. Right now you have the choice to eat healthy, exercise, and adopt a positive attitude about your fitness.

Your body is a reflection of your daily choices. Using your 'now time' in a positive way and making healthy choices will create a better tomorrow. Great changes happen when you implement this strategy. 

In order to change your life, it will take work on your 'now'. Things like poor eating habits, lack of exercise, stress, and even a bad attitude can all be turned around. Making the choice now to change those things that can be fixed is what gives you the power to change your life.

The difference in who you are and who you want to be is determined by what you're doing now. Get out some paper and ask yourself these questions:

  • What would you like to see happen in your life?
  • Do you want to be healthier and feel better?
  • Do you want to improve the quality of your life?
  • Do you want to reduce stress?
  • Do you want better relationships?
  • Do you want to look better?
  • Do you want to eat healthier and exercise?

The list is endless, but these are a few ideas. The point is to get you thinking about how you would like to change. Depending on your answers, you could consider the following:

  • Hire a qualified personal trainer or nutritionist short-term for education and motivation.
  • Start a food and fitness journal for accountability.
  • Join a gym, boot camp, or start working out at home.
  • Take a healthy cooking class.
  • Inventory your current nutrition and replace 'junk' food with healthy choices.
  • See a qualified counselor or therapist.
  • Go get a physical and talk with your doctor about improving your health.

When you take control of today to improve your fitness, you will experience positive results. Allow time and be patient with your efforts. Stay consistent, trust the process, and your future self will thank you for what you're doing now.

What is depression?

Depression is a common yet complex mental health condition affecting more than 16 million adults and 3 million adolescents in the US each year. People with depression feel sad, empty, or hopeless much of the time. It’s more than a case of the blues; depression looms like a storm cloud that won’t let sunshine peak through. It saps the joy of being with friends and family. People can lose interest in hobbies, sex, and other pleasurable activities, and they may have trouble eating or sleeping.

Some cases of depression have a genetic component, but lots of factors beyond an inherited tendency can spur and aggravate depression symptoms, including various environmental factors.

Sometimes people don’t acknowledge or recognize depression in themselves or others, so they fail to seek help from a health care professional. But without treatment, depression can linger for weeks or months–sometimes years–and can lead to worsening symptoms. Depression can wreck lives, friendships, and marriages and p…

Are you eating too much sugar? Many of us may not even realize hidden sugar is contained in many foods being consumed. Also, much of the food we eat is converted into sugar.

Is the Latest Fitness Trend—Here’s Why That’s a Problem

Quick, what comes to mind when you think of a marriage proposal? Probably a man on bended knee. Well, now you need to add a lady doing squats to that image of betrothal bliss. Because the new trend out there is something called “proposal shape.” Yes, that’s right: Before you’re a shredded bride, you now need to be a fit fiancée.

It’s no longer enough to be skinny when you say “I do.” A number of today’s women are pressuring themselves to be hard-bodied by the time they say “Yes.” As in, “Yes, I’ll marry you! Just let me do a few burpees before we take a selfie so I can tighten my glutes in this fantastically new, flattering bodycon dress I happened to throw on even though I had absolutely no idea you were going to propose this evening! Hold my kettlebell.”

Proposal shape is a tight and curvy metaphor for how out of whack our expectations of the whole wedding process are and the ridiculous pressure women place on themselves during the whole bridal experience. Girlfriends who are pre-f…
