Quality of Life

I recently had my graphic designer create this image for me: It’s a simple graph, but it says so much… Small & simple actions taken consistently over time yield a significant result, positive or negative. You see, it’s not about doing things big once in a while. Like how compounding interest over the [...]

Back in the Saddle Again

Oh, that first day back after vacation… Don’t get me wrong; I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, especially some projects Janell and I are working on...but that first day back always hurts a little.  There was definitely a little internal conversation about skipping my workout and going back to [...]

Frustrated with Fitness – Part 2

Yesterday, I addressed the most common answer to a recent survey question: When it comes to your health and fitness, what is your biggest frustration?   The most common answer took some form of “not seeing results” or “not seeing results fast enough.” You can read my thoughts/advice on the subject here. Today, I’m [...]

Lack of Results Can Be Frustrating

I want to take another look at the recent survey I sent out (you can complete it here if you haven’t done so). In a previous newsletter, I addressed the most common answer to question #1: When it comes to fitness/getting in shape/joining a gym, what is/was your biggest fear? You can read my [...]

Don’t Let Fear Of Judgment Hold You Back

Last week I sent out a survey and the very first question was: When it comes to fitness/getting in shape/joining a gym, what is/was your biggest fear? There were also a LOT of responses related to being judged. Yikes.  :-( Now, I don’t want to downplay it at all.  Clearly, it’s a big fear. [...]

Comebacks Suck, But What’s The Alternative?

After about a two-week forced break from working out (see article about my strange headache) I’m back at it.  I got workouts in Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and today… ...and, all but one (yesterday) sucked.  Well, today wasn’t so bad because it was just a recovery ride, but, even still, there’s an obvious decline in [...]

When is a plateau a GOOD thing?

Let’s face it, nobody likes feeling stuck. When it comes to a transformation of any kind, lack of progress can be defeating. But, what exactly is a lack of progress? Let’s take weight loss as an example… Most people lose and gain the same weight over and over and over again and they always [...]

3 Ways to Eliminate Misery

We’ve all heard the saying, “Misery loves company.” It’s so true, isn’t it? People who are miserable will always try to drag other people into their miserable state of being. But, where does misery actually come from and how can we prevent it (other than avoiding miserable people)? On Monday I introduced you to [...]

Would you like to eliminate insecurity with me?

Janell and I had the pleasure of listening to one of the very best speakers I’ve ever heard in my life.  He was inspirational, funny, and very smart. Dr. Sean Stephenson has been praised by far more important people than me; people like Tony Robbins and Bill Clinton.  He’s presented for some of the [...]
