No More Bullsh*!

Yeah, I said it.  I'm calling your bluff.  You keep saying you want to lose the weight, but you haven't done anything to get there.  It's time to stop making excuses and start doing something about it.  No more bullshit.  There.  I said it.  No censor.  Stop it with the bullshit.There are so many things out there vying for your attention.  I know, you could do this cool new program that you heard your friend is doing so you're going to do it.    Are you?  Really?  Or are you saying that to put it off again until someone brings

I Hate Setting Goals

So I'm going to start by saying that I hate this topic.  I don't like setting goals and the people I meet and work with don't really like it either.  It makes us feel uncomfortable and (for me at least) make me feel like I'm being egotistical, full of myself, greedy, or self-centered.  Setting goals for me often feels slimy and gross.And that feeling (for me and you) is dead wrong.  I know it.  You know it.  It'd be great to know why we feel that way (likely has to do with some psycho-babble madness that is locked in our

Why You NEED to Test Your Limits

As you read this blog I am currently recovering from running the Spartan Ultra Beast on Saturday.  What is that exactly?  A 25-30 mile trail race thru the mountains of Breckenridge with 70 obstacles to overcome during that distance.  It is a brutal test of strength, endurance, and will.  And this is now my 2nd one.My question to you today is simple: when was the last time you did something that truly tested what you are capable of?  Something so daunting that it actually scraed you.  Not that "ohh this is knida fun but scary at the same time" kind

Tomorrow Will ALWAYS be Never

I'll get to it tomorrow.  Ahhhh, the procrastinators creed.  It's almost like we believe that tomorrow is this magic land where we'll find the motivation to conquer all that lies before us and our dreams are already reality because we've will it so.The problem with "tomorrowland" is that it doesn't exist.  When you are wanting to build a new habit, change you life, become successful at anything, you have to start TODAY!  Today is the only time you have to make the changes that you want to make.  It's the only time you have to get done what needs to
