Mid-Week Motivation: Focus Small to Aim Big

One thing that I have found to be very powerful in this fat-blasting-life-changing journey is that the short-term goals can be really powerful; but so many of us (including me) neglect them. We have a goal and a dream to get to 13st (182lbs), to become a pilot, to getting promoted, to getting married, etc. […]

One of the things that can really cause your weight loss results to crash is the portion problem.  Now when I started this disciplined journey to a fitter, healthier life my problem was that I wasn’t eating enough, my body wasn’t getting the proper nutrients to be healthy, function well and assist me in losing […]

“I Just Don’t Have the Time to Workout 3 Times a Week!”

Have these words ever been uttered from your lips? I know I said them once upon a time, but now I know that they were just a lame excuse, so that I couldn’t blame myself for not doing what needed to be done. All of us have 24 hours in a day, that’s 168 hours […]
