Why Fitness Comes Down to Your Choices

Health and happiness come down to choices. I think we can all agree with that statement. We have the responsibility to make choices each day to eat healthy, exercise, and respond to life in the best way. It's not about being perfect, but having realistic goals progressing toward a quality life. 

We are all works in progress. Adopting a healthy lifestyle will remain a lifetime process. Being healthy is by choice and not by chance. Days will not be perfect, but they can be the best according to your choices. 

None of us like to hear we're making excuses, but it really does apply to fitness and everything in life. Getting healthy takes effort just as pushing through college and career takes work. I don't accept excuses or reasons why health isn't a priority and that isn't called being unreasonable, it's being truthful. Let me clarify my reference is to the majority of people who can get healthy but choose to remain in an unhealthy lifestyle.  

You can do it, but will you? That is the question each of us has to answer when it comes to taking care of your health in all aspects. You are in control of what you eat, how many times you exercise, letting go of pointless drama, and how you respond to life. You should want to feel your best, look your best, and be your healthy best. 

There will be times motivation is tanked and you don't want to put in the work. That is called normal. It's in those moments you must dig deep inside yourself and make the choice to push on anyway. Fitness is a disciplined life regardless of negative feelings.  

If you feel this post is coming on strong, then I have accomplished my goal of getting you to think. I hope you are motivated to get tough with yourself and make the necessary choices to get healthy. Are you angry, bitter, frustrated, unhappy, and using reasons to remain unhealthy? I hope your choices begin to turn this around replacing all that negative stuff with a healthy, quality, and happy life.

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…

What is breast cancer?

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, after skin cancer. One in eight women in the United States (roughly 12%) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. Encouragingly, the death rate from breast cancer has declined a bit in recent years, perhaps due to greater awareness and screening for this type of cancer, as well as better treatments.

Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when cells in breast tissue change (or mutate) and keep reproducing. These abnormal cells usually cluster together to form a tumor. A tumor is cancerous (or malignant) when these abnormal cells invade other parts of the breast or when they spread (or metastasize) to other areas of the body through the bloodstream or lymphatic system, a network of vessels and nodes in the body that plays a role in fighting infection.

Breast cancer usually starts in the milk-producing glands of the breast (called lo…
