Welp, this is by far the longest (and hopefully the most honest) thing I've ever written. Click the link for some thoughts about addiction, uncertainty, and self-care. Hope it's helpful. :)

If you don’t put yourself first, then you will become so miserable and exhausted that your performance will suffer in every aspect of life.
Self-care is not a selfish act. It is a key ingredient of a healthy and happy life. Put yourself first, because self-care is essential for your success.

Talk is cheap. Action is priceless. If you say things like, “I will work out next Monday,” but never seem to follow through, then I’m talking to you.

You’re having this problem because, while your goal is a good one, it doesn’t include a specific means to achieve it. Thus, you have set yourself up for failure from the start.

If you would like to end this cycle of disappointment, click the link below to find out why vague goals are worthless (and what you should do instead).

Would you go to work if you didn’t receive a paycheck to compensate you for your time? For the vast majority of people, the question is simply silly: what would be the point of putting in the time and effort if there was nothing to be gained?

Exercising without purpose isn’t any different. It’s not easy to find a reason to exercise when you don’t have a clear understanding of what you hope to receive in return for your effort.

If you have a hard time convincing yourself to get off the couch, click ahead to continue reading. You just might walk away with a good reason to get moving.

Have you ever had a role model who inspired you to become a better version of yourself? If so, you know positive influences can make a huge difference in your life. It’s nice to have somebody to look up to, especially when you’re struggling with a difficult situation.

Some of these goal-setting tips might sound counterintuitive, but they sure do work. :)

The thought of going to a movie without a friend is enough to make some people tremble. I used to be one of them. Now I know it isn’t so bad.
The thought of going to a movie without a friend is enough to make some people tremble. When I let go of my fear of being alone, these five things happened.

Attacking your health challenges as if they are a foreign invader to be vanquished in a day of battle is not a healthy thing to do. Why hurry, anyway? Getting fit and losing weight can actually be a rewarding journey; something to savor with each new milestone achieved.

Please read before buying into fear-based arguments regarding food.

Story
Tagline
A guy trying to make a difference, and make the best out of this life.
Introduction
I'm as nerdy as they come.
I enjoy singing (badly)
I enjoy dancing (badly)
I love: writing, coffee, tea, live music, wine.
Batman > Superman, anyday
My passion is fitness and weight-loss.  I was the fat kid for my entire public school existence.  When I finally lost my weight, the difference was huge: confidence, self-esteem, happiness, athleticism--I could go on.  I want to help people discover the same difference.
