Lose Weight With The Right Attitude

How Thankfulness Can Help You When You Want To Lose Weight
Do you find trying to lose weight causes you to lose your cool?

If there’s any battle that get’s us down, it’s the daily battle of the bulge!!!

It seems like every day is an emotional rollercoaster ride depending on whether I eat right and the scale is going up or down!

I’m not technically overweight, but I have an extra 15 or 20 lbs I’d like to dispose of. I know some of you hate me for even saying that! You wish you only had 20 lbs to lose!

The reality is […]

The Challenges We Face

Do you sometimes wish life was easier? Wouldn’t it be nice if everything good for us didn’t take such time, effort and self-discipline?
The challenges of life are on every side of us. They’re everywhere we turn. Whether it’s health, relationships, finances, spiritual growth, or keeping an orderly environment, we engage in a battle between the outcomes we want, and the work it takes to get there, every day of our lives! Some of us have had more training in self-discipline than others. I am not one of them!!!
I have gone through most of my life like a Yo-yo, trying […]

Humility is the Key to Learning

Have you ever been stuck in an area of your life and felt like it would be impossible to change because you’ve been like that for so long that you’ve kinda given up hope?
Many of us have felt like that in one or more areas of our lives at some time. Have you heard the quote by Albert Einstein that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expecting to see different results? I heard that over and over and I knew I needed to change somehow, but I didn’t know what things to do […]

How to Keep Motivated to Live a Healthy Life

Here’s a tip on feeding your brain to change your life!
Do you ever read something or watch something that really inspires you to change and you start out then get off track? Umm… Yeah!!! I think we all have in one way or another.

Losing Weight – Don’t Bite off More Than You Can Chew

Do you get overwhelmed when thinking about the amount of weight you want to lose? If it seems like a mountain too hard to climb, then this tip is for you!
Break down the amount you want to lose into ‘bite-sized’ chunks. If you need to lose 50 lbs and that seems too hard, then make a goal to lose 5 lbs. 5 lbs is doable for anyone! Make the goal of losing 5 lbs measurable and attainable to you.

If you have a goal of losing 5 lbs in one month and have a healthy plan for doing that, then […]

Should You Sue Yourself for Damages?

Do you need to learn to treat yourself better?
Here’s something to think about:

Cleaning Company Analogy:

Imagine you hired a cleaning company to clean your home while you were away on holidays so you’d have a nice clean place to come home to and:

Instead of floor cleaner, they spread a bunch of food all over the floor then left all the doors and windows open and the smell attracted all kinds of vermin
There is an infestation of ants, cockroaches and rats running wild everywhere and leaving behind all their nests and faeces. The animals have destroyed much of your furniture and […]

Brain Change Part 4: Some New Thoughts

Do you need some help replacing those old negative thoughts?
Before we can change our bodies, we have to change our habits, and to change our habits we have to change our mind! If you are currently unhappy with your state of health or the state of your physique, it is highly likely that you are in need of some ‘re-programming’ to get you to where you want to be.

First of all, ‘the truth will set you free’. You need to learn the truth about food, exercise, and other lifestyle habits, how they affect us and what we really need. […]

Brain Change Part 3:Overcoming Resistance

Do you want to know how to change old negative patterns of thinking?
We’ve been looking at changing the layer between belief and action – our thoughts, so we can overcome our current mental resistances to change. In psychology they call the intrusive thoughts that arise whenever we try to make a change or face a new and challenging experience, ‘resistances’.

Weight training is called ‘resistance training’. You have to push past the resistance of the weight, going beyond what your muscles are used to doing, to increase their current size and ability. To push past your mental resistances, those boundaries […]
