Coaching people to EAT SMARTER and MOVE SMARTER so they can develop the habits necessary to achieve their HEALTH and FITNESS goals and keep them for LIFE



Habits, Systems, and Goals

As of today, we are 23 days into the new year. How are those resolutions going? Great? Not bad? Not making the progress you were hoping for? 

Don’t feel bad; most people have already given up on their resolutions by now, or will within the next few weeks.

The question is… why? Continue reading “Habits, Systems, and Goals”

I don’t know about you guys, but this winter I’ve been pretty inconsistent with both my exercise program and my eating habits (and blog posts. Ugh.). The result is an extra 8 – 10 lbs in my waist area that I’m none too happy about. And now that the weather is finally getting warmer, I’ve decided to do something about it.

Time for Some Changes…

If you read my previous post, you know I have recently been inspired to be more than an occasional writer.

My hope is that the information will be helpful in some way.

I would never claim to be an expert in any field, but I have gained a lot of valuable information over the years (no age jokes please!) in a few areas–exercise, nutrition, running, cycling, great authors (and therefore great books!), and a few others.

My plan is to start writing about many of these things, sharing some of the knowledge I’ve picked up over the last couple of decades. And hopefully it will be helpful to anyone who takes the time to read it.

My first post along these lines is to share the changes I made to my workout and nutritional intake (notice I didn’t use the “D” word!) to lose over 10 lbs of bodyfat (an inch off of my waist) in 5 months at age 50. I have been asked by a couple people to put it on paper, so stand by, it’s coming. It will be in two parts.

Anyway, thanks for reading up to this point. And yes. I am STILL, and ALWAYS will be a “WORK-IN-PROGRESS”, and thankful to God for WAY MORE blessings than I could ever imagine.

P.S. Did you notice I changed the THEME too? The image in the background is a sunrise shot from Myrtle Beach I took last year. Cool, huh?
