Why You Try and Fail Time and Again

“A man may fail many times but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.”
John Burroughs

We have found that when people make the decision to lose weight and become fit, they’re usually enthusiastic about their new lifestyle. They begin with a fervor and end the program much too soon because they’ve tried to do too much – too fast.

Going overboard at first may also cause injuries. If you know your muscles aren’t ready for an intensive workout, don’t do it. It will cause more problems than you’ll want to deal with.

Plan for small, incremental fitness changes, such as walking a few minutes per day, a couple of times per week – or swim for fitness so it will be easier on your body. One thing to remember when you begin to plan fitness goals is to be very specific.

Don’t just think “get fit” is going to be enough motivation and information to guide you through the long run. Make small changes and when you’re ready move on. Goals should also be carefully planned.

If you’re worn out in the evening hours from working all day, set a goal to get up earlier in the morning to walk or exercise. If your long term goal is to run in a marathon, you’re going to have to plan carefully so you’re up to the challenge when the time comes.

Short term goals lead to the long term goals you desire, so plan them as carefully as the ones you want to eventually reach. By setting realistic short term goals, you’ll find that if you stay committed and consistent, it won’t seem as difficult or overwhelming as it did at first.

Grocery Store Dating Anyone?

For those of you with significant others to do you grocery shop alone or with them?

It’s a sad but true fact that going to the grocery store is actually like a date for us.  Well it really isn’t sad at all.

We are so busy running here and there and working on our many projects that we schedule our grocery shopping and make it a date.

Now that we have our healthy shopping list we actually get in and out of the store a lot faster which allows more time for us after we are done shopping.  I keep printed copies on our refrigerator so all I have to do is grab one and head out the door.

We spend a lot of time laughing and talking while we shop and we have had some great laughs.  On our last trip, there was a young man in his puffy terrycloth bathrobe and slippers walking around like it was normal to shop in a bathrobe.

If Only I had Known…

How many times have you found yourself saying dag gone it. “If only I had known.”.

You may say it when you get invited to try something that is outside of “your normal” and you decline for no good reason.  Then you run into a friend that shares with you that they tried it and how great it was.

You may say it when you find out someone that you were once close to but for some dumb reason you no longer speak with has suffered silently with illness.

There are so many reasons you may think or say “If only I had known” and the majority of the time these words are an expression of REGRET or an expression of SORROW.

When it comes to YOUR HEALTH we never want you to say, “If only I had known.” We never want to you to REGRET or feel a sense of SORROW about your health.

We cannot cover every health and fitness topics because there is not enough time in our days and truthfully we don’t know it all.

We do our best to provide VALUE to your life through the topics we cover and we encourage you to share the information with others.

We have discovered if you want to eliminate regret and reduce the “I wish I had known(s)” you must:

Do you believe in love at first sight?

I want to share a little of our history with you.

When C. Mack walked in the front door on that cold snowy day in Pittsburgh, PA I instantly knew he would one day be my husband.  It was the weirdest feeling I ever had. My emotions immediately shifted to anger and fear.  I know, not a good reaction but here is why.  I had been single for several years, I was probably in the best physical shape I had ever been in.  I was working an awesome job, I was shopping and lunching on the weekends with my Sister, walking daily, traveling, going to jazzercise class and really enjoying life.

All I could think of was now I am going to have to start answering to someone, my routine was going to change.  Oh brother I’m not ready for this!
