Mind Set

Celebrate Success!

I am some pretty epic news! Axel broke his first board in Taekwondo the other day ;-). You should have seen him and all the other kids. They were super proud of themselves and they even got to take the broken boards home with them to show everyone. This made me think, “How often do we celebrate our own success?” Rarely if at all, which is pretty sad and depressing if you think about it. When we do accomplish something, that was hard or difficult, most of us dismiss it with the thought, “It wasn’t that hard. I should have down...

Do You Resent Others Weight Loss Success?

My 5 year old son Axel has started a 2 week trail of Tae Kwon Do. I won’t lie it is pretty awesome and funny. I have taken him a couple of times and it makes me smile from ear to ear every time. The little kids are so cute and they all think they are Bruce Lee lol. Any way, the first time Axel went it was a semi-private session/assessment with only one other new kid. Axel was a little older, bigger, and more confident than the other kid and guess what? He LOVED the experience, it was great....

3 Reasons Why You Fail To Get Fit.

What kind of seed are you? What kind of fitness seed are you? Disclaimer, this awesome little parable is modified from an even awesomer parable from Jesus in the Bible ;-). This is how it goes. One day, a farmer was throwing seeds out into the field and one of the seeds landed on the walking path and the birds saw it and instantly ate it up. Another seed, fell on a rocky place that didn’t have much soil. It sprang up and grew really quickly, but when the sun came out it scorched the plant and it died because it had nothing...

Before you start training with weights you need to lose all the fat first…

Have you ever heard… “Before you start training with weights you need to lose all the fat first.” Unfortunately, I hear this myth often and it is beyond false!  It’s like saying you need to pay off all your debt before you get a job. Makes ZERO sense! So, why do people believe this? First, they are afraid of going to a gym and working out. They often don’t know what to do or how to do it. Plus, there will be a bunch of meatheads judging them the whole time. Second, they already feel bad about their appearance. Why would they...

I Am Overcoming My Procrastination…I bought a Crossbow ;-)

Well, I followed my own advice… I thought about hunting and how much I used to enjoy it, plus Axel is talking about it all the time… So I counted 5-4-3-2-1 and….bought a crossbow and a hunting license lol. I took action even though my brain was telling me not to….”You don’t have the time. There is no where to go. Axel is just going to be noising.” As I counted down instead of dwelling on those issues I thought about how thrilled Axel is going to be even if we are just walking in the woods “hunting!” How about you? Are you...

Walt Disney, “All our dreams can come true if have we the courage to pursue them.”

This weekend I was asked to write a letter to one of my old students back when I was a PE teacher. She is joining a sorority and part of the ceremony involves her getting letters from past teachers, mentors, etc… I figured if it was good enough for this sweet young lady it would be good enough for you as well ;-). First a quote from Walt Disney, “All our dreams can come true if have we the courage to pursue them.” I'm not a huge fan of the idea of believing it and achieving it. But I am a fan...

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking – William B. Sprague

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking - William B. Sprague I love this quote. It really resonates with kind of how I have gone through life and my mentality when I approach hard tasks and difficult times. Instead of waiting for the perfect moment, or the perfect time and for everything to align. I take action. Granted at times this has gotten me into trouble. But what I've discovered is that action generally trumps no-action. How many times in your live have you thought I'll wait until A or Z...

Many people make this same common mistake…

As a personal trainer I get blessed with the opportunity to help people on a daily basis. On top of that, a seriously doubt there is anything cooler than training a new client who is super eager and ready to change their lifestyle and develop new habits.   Often times these new clients are working really hard trying to undo what has often taken years to get to. They are trying to make up for lost time. However...

You CAN Help Others!

I love Thursdays! On Thursday we go to Mercy Hill Church (http://www.mercyhillgso.com/) having grown up as a missionary kid in Brazil I have been apart of a lot of churches and Mercy Hill is by far the best and our entire family loves it. If you are curious or feel like you are missing out on something I strongly suggest you come and visit ;-) I promise you will learn something practical and cool! With that said…. little accountability check ;-) from this weeks challenge. Did you know that one of the best ways to get better at something is...
