Cheat OUT not IN
April 30, 2011

Cheat at the restaurant, not at home!

The dilemma: Ordering dessert at a restaurant costs anywhere from five to eight dollars, which is the price of a whole cake at the grocery store.

Let’s say you opt for the entire cake, instead of the overpriced restaurant dessert. You feel good about your bulk purchase; in fact, it is more bang for your buck! True, restaurant dessert portions are smaller and extremely over priced. However, limiting yourself to just one cheat and not being tempted to polish off the leftovers in the refrigerator… now that is priceless!

Your wallet might not thank you, but your waistline will!

What is your potential?
April 8, 2011

Try to imagine your real potential. No doubt you have a goal weight in mind, thinking you need to lose around 10 or 15 lbs. Realistically, in most cases that is just the beginning! One can take for granted how overweight one has become. Of course losing 15 lbs is going to reduce your health risks and make you feel years younger. Nonetheless, if you are serious about your body and your health, you might want to think about doubling those numbers.

Remember, the amount of exercise and willingness to stick to a balanced diet is in direct relation to results. There are no quick fixes! If you have failed to see any results until now, you are not committed enough.

If you refuse to turn your back on most of your eating vices, then I am sorry, you are not ready! Sure, there will be times when you can indulge yourself, but if your life revolves around unhealthy food, it will be impossible to break the cycle.

You have it in you to succeed, everyone does. You simply need to decide that you have had enough, and your healthy life starts now! Just imagine your potential.
