New Weekly Tipz! This week is a great time to access where we are, which is roughly 15 weeks till the end of the year, less than that till the “holidays”. Time doesn’t care if we’ve been busy. We need to know where we are exactly at this moment. Because where we are NOW has everything to do with where we are heading in the future. I’m talking about goals, dreams, the things we want from life. I say this often, and only with the best intentions: wherever we are at this present moment was made possible by our past and current lifestyle, environments and behaviors. If we want something different for ourselves in the future, we will mostly likely need to make some serious changes to the the way we think and the things we do (and don’t do). Make no mistake, this is the only way that i know conscience progress and change happens. Start slow. Build strong. (P.S i have no idea why the video is so dark. sorry. just roll with it.)

New Weekly Tipz! Today is part 1 of 3 “movement routines” I use while traveling away from home. I also recommend some version of these to many. Today’s video is a simple 5 min flow that involves basic yoga type stretches and some simple bodyweight moves. No equipment needed. This isn’t a routine in use to get sweaty and all that. I primarily use this for “unwinding” my body from sitting too much and sleeping on not-so-soft surfaces. At the very least, it might make you feel a little better to start your day.

New Weekly Tipz! This week i talk about the simple fact that having only one gear in life, especially with regards to fitness & health, is typically not so desirable. Sometimes we need the flex to shift up or down a gear to make continued progress with any chosen goal. The key is always balance. Too much or too little (aka “all or nothing”) may work for some for a little while but the middle is what i believe to be the true path to longterm success and most importantly, our health and longevity.

In my mind, there are 2 HUGE (extremely popular) exercise myths that have created a lot of problems, as well as helped construct unnecessary barriers for many. However, there are a million reasons (excuses) why most don’t and won’t exercise. I have heard them all. Not enough time is most often what i hear. This week i talk about why most of us don’t need to do exercise extremely hard or extremely long to get what we need done. But don’t misunderstand me, exercise is most certainly supposed to be work. It’s supposed to be challenging. If we don’t continually challenge our minds, bodies, etc, we’ll never really evolve and/or improve. Exercise is important because when done properly, it improves many aspects of health. Losing body fat is just a very, very small part of that. Just because something (anything) is “good” for us does not mean a whole lot more of it is always automatically better.

New weekly Health & Fitness Tipz! This week my video is shorter (less than 3 minutes). I talk briefly about the benefits of starting each day off on the “good foot”, regardless of what time of day we get up or how well we wake up. I do have a concern for caffeine addiction, especially if that caffeine must contain cream &/or sugar. Sorry but that sh*t ain’t good for you. That’s just a dessert drink that is probably doing nothing but making you fatter, unhealthier and less likely to sleep better each day. Many of the “energy” drinks also have similar issues. I’d recommend drinking a full glass of clean water first thing in the morning and then maybe one cup of black coffee or one sugar-free energy drink if you must. Beyond that, i’d highly recommend getting better rest each night. Moving more if you sit down most of your day. Possibly moving less if you exercise and work “hard” every day. Eat healthier foods. Manage stress daily. Write down (in your mind or on paper) a plan for each day. Don’t just be a robot, a slave. Be an arrow aimed at the bullseye of where you want to go and what you want to accomplish. This starts by setting the tone as soon as you wake :)
