Here’s a tip that’ll help you get results AND won’t cut you off at the bar: Stick to lighter forms of alcohol! Just as you may have heard with soft drinks, alcohol is least damaging when it is lighter in color. This isn’t necessarily due to the liquor itself but the soda you tend to mix your darker whiskeys, rums etc with. You will do yourself good by having a vodka with seltzer water and a lime, or by adding flavoring yourself in the form of a low calorie addition from your purse or blazer coat. Still looking
A quick nutrition tip that you can use all day every day, AND before every meal good or bad: Drink one 16 ounce glass of water before every time you eat. The water (If cold, but who wants warm water?) will not only give your metabolism a slight nudge but it will also fill you up prior to the meal to come, causing you to eat less! Try this before snacks and you may eliminate the want for that snack altogether. Do you have questions for us or have a topic you’d like to learn more about? Tell
Difficulties are never easy, but neither are miracles. Have you ever thought about that? People almost always tend to focus on the difficulties and the negatives of a situation. With this mindset it will always seem impossible at the time to overcome. Obstacles are sprinkled throughout our lives in every way. So, with the New Year among us I thought it would be a great time to touch on the fact that we want and need those obstacles to happen!

If preparing him to withstand the G-force that a NASCAR moving 200 miles per hour exerts isn’t enough, we are throwing weight vests on him and forcing him to walk specified distances with barbells over his head to better tackle a mountain. Win the day.
You are not owed anything…ever. Sorry. Even when you work as hard as you possibly can in this life, you are not guaranteed victory or success BUT you ARE guaranteed growth! There is positivity and opportunity in everything that happens in our lives…it is up to us to turn these happenings into good momentum to attack tomorrow rather than wallowing around in today.

There’s no way around it people… Life is tough, and there are obstacles….BUT if you are going to be anything within this life of yours you have to not just decide to stand up but stand ABOVE whatever it is in your way. There is no obstacle that can completely deflate the human body, mind and soul. Everything is up to you and if you choose to continuously throw your head down and run towards the destination that you and your supporters know is meant for you, you will get there. Read until you’re smart enough…try until you’re mentally strong
