Last week, we talked about the excuses that people make that they use to say that they cannot or should not start adding fitness into their daily life. One of the excuses that I hear commonly is that "I need to get in shape before I come do that." This statement really is asinine and is hard to believe that someone would actually say that!

We are well into the new year now and many of us have the classic "New Year's Resolution". However, some articles have said that many people are done working on their resolutions by January 17th.... JANUARY 17TH?!?!?! While it would be easy to bash those for failing, I think it goes to show how difficult it really can be to start a new habit!

No plan survives first contact with the "enemy" so it is important to realize that your initial plan will likely have some downfalls to it.
This week, we have been talking about how to start a new routine! After the research and planning phase, you must simply START! There is NEVER a good time to start anything. There will ALWAYS be something else to get in your way. There is never enough time! The best way to do it, is to start. Don't allow excuses for yourself! You can do this and you deserve the results that this new routine can give to you! Stick to your plan. You have researched and made a plan that works fo
Every week, I try to give you some ACTIONABLE advice to help you to achieve your goals quicker and more completely. This week, we are talking about how to start a new routine! With many of the people that I help, a lot of their problems revolve around a lack of a plan, habit or routine for how to make their health and wellness a priority in their life! A new routine is rarely started on a whim. You may get the inspiration to change your routine on a whim, but successfully int
This week, we are talking about how to implement a new task or activity into your daily routine! Today I want to talk about making a plan. Yesterday we talked about researching your new activity, today we want to use the information that we gathered to help us in making a plan to continue forward.
