Building a Plan for Fitness Success Series 1 of 3

Before I get started with this first post of a three-part series, I would like to explain that I rarely use the word diet. When I do, I use it in the literal sense.

The term I use for this is “Fitness Lifestyle.”

Now, let’s get started. Continue reading “Building a Plan for Fitness Success Series 1 of 3”

How to Organize Your Fitness Life

(Part 2 of Building a Plan for Fitness Success Series)

If you’re planning a fitness program for your life, you probably know you need to make a plan and stick to it.  In many ways, the simpler the better.  You don’t want to create an overly detailed plan that takes more time to account for than the exercise and fitness activities themselves.  Such a plan would distract you from your goal and likely have the opposite effect.

Preparing For Fitness Success

Preparing For Fitness Success (Part 3 of Building a Plan for Fitness Success Series)Let me let you in on a little secret: it’s typical for people to look everywhere for an excuse not to follow their dreams.  That’s right.  Perhaps you were planning on taking an evening jog, but alas, it begins pouring down rain.  Many of us would take this opportunity to give ourselves the excuse to not follow through with our exercise activity for the day. 

It’s just human nature – and that’s why you have to plan ahead.  Plan so far ahead that you’ve imagined every likely scenario that could give you an excuse not to follow through with your commitment.  Remember to do your laundry to keep your exercise clothes clean and ready to use. Make sure you have enough time to go to the grocery store before you have to start eating at fast-food restaurants. Continue reading “Preparing For Fitness Success”

An Inside Look at Celiac Disease

An Inside Look at Celiac Disease. I would like to share a fact about me that my readers, unless you are a friend or family member, don’t already know.

How to Make Writing a Priority

How to Make Writing a Priority

Writing is a powerful practice and those who make it a priority tend to be more reflective people.  Why?  Because it is a very rare time that we get things out of our head and somewhere concrete.  There are thousands of things that run through our minds every day that we may not talk with other people about.  That means we never really sort it out in an organized way.
