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…

Reduce Sugar Intake to Get Fit, Healthy, and Reduce Body Fat - Day 30 New Year, New You

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.

The problem remains consuming too much sugar isn't healthy, contributes to weight gain, obesity, and illness. Refined and added sugar can be addictive and keeps you coming back for more. Because of this, many of us are overfeeding but starving for nutrients. The outcome is a temporary sugar fix and added flab layer.

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…
