This fitness blog includes helpful fitness, training, and nutirition tips to help you reach your desired goals. No matter what path you choose - I can help you get there!
It is my intention to create a direct link between exercise and enjoyment!
Below are 6 reminders why my book is a handy little resource.
1) This book is a reminder
that with each passing week…with each passing day…with each passing hour there
is less time for setting goals, accomplishing them, realizing our life’s
purpose, and enjoying every day; this book is about asking ourselves: “What is
going on in my life right now?” “Is my motivation taking me in a goal directed
fashion?” “Where do I want to be in 3 months, 6 months, 1 year…5 years, etc.?”
2) This book is a reminder
of the importance of resiliency because it is an essential aspect of motivation. We all face challenges, setbacks, exposure to severe risk at times
and stress or injury. With this in mind, it is important to remember; a key
function of motivation is to adjust one’s personal goals in ways that improve
one’s possibilities to manage one’s life situation. Individuals who have difficulties
in making this adjustment are incapable or unwilling to change their previous
goals are at a greater risk of feeling unhappy.
3) This book is a
reminder that the key to having continued success rest upon reevaluating your goals and having realistic expectations.
4) This book is a reminder that self-awareness is an
essential pre-condition for positive change; therefore, the topic to explore is
what’s working and what’s not working in the area of desired change.
5) This book is a reminder that articulating and creating
a compelling vision of your desired future self is the foundation for planning
and reaching your long-term goals.
6) This book is a reminder that each day that we awaken,
we take a step toward reaching our goals, remain the same, or take a step back. With
this in mind, the core goal of this book is to remind everyone reading it
(including myself) of the profound importance of realizing…with each passing
week...with each passing day…with each passing hour…we have less time to do
everything that we hope to in our life’s that brings us a sense of
accomplishment and happiness.
Remember, in the words of Diana Scharf Hunt, “Goals
are dreams with deadlines.”

three-quarters of the apple chucks and add a pinch of sea salt. Pour in the
milk and 1 ¾ cups hot water and stir over medium heat until the porridge begins

consistency. The apple chucks will collapse into the oatmeal and the liquid
should all be absorbed.

extra milk on the side to top oatmeal.
Slight variations: Swap the cow’s milk for soy or rice
milk...something to think about as an alternative.
