Consistency Is Key

I woke up this morning after a very good nights sleep and as I lay there slowly waking up a thought came to me.  It was as if someone was right there speaking to me.  It wasn’t a whisper but very, very clear; “Consistency is key”.  That was it…just those…

Little Things Count

So many times we think if we don’t have a block of time to work out that we shouldn’t bother.  But the truth is that anything is better than nothing!  It’s been proven that short workouts do work. My schedule has changed recently and it’s been difficult for me to…

Take Action

We’ve all heard it…you know, the saying “Just Do It!”  But what does that look like?  What are we supposed to do?  And why should we do anything?  Well, the answers to these questions  are different for each individual.  It depends on the circumstances and goals for that person.  The…

Your thoughts overload your mouth….your mouth overloads your rear end…..AKA Volcano Mouth or you talk too much!

Have you ever felt like your mouth was a volcano that kept erupting and you had no control over it?  I have!  When I get stressed, when I’m sleep deprived, when I feel I’m being treated unfairly….Oh my!  Basically when life happens.  Sometimes it can be hard to  keep my…

I’m not just getting older…I’m getting BETTER!!

Getting older, it happens to all of us.  We have aches and pains that didn’t exist in our 20’s, we slow down, we move less, and we forget stuff!!  Isn’t it just part of aging?  This is normal…..right??  It may be what society says is normal but it doesn’t have…
