As the year comes to a close, start to think of everything that you’re holding onto. Are you holding onto relationships that support you in your journey in life, or are you holding onto relationships that cause you pain, and retard your potential for growth? Are your goals and dreams practical? Do you allow past mistakes to haunt you? Do you allow things that you can’t change, to weigh you down, and prevent you from making the most of your reality?

Yup. It’s already March. How often do you find yourself blinking, not knowing where the time has gone? As cliche as this question has become: are we actually living?

Us humans do sometimes need routine, but when every Sunday exemplifies Monday dread, every Monday is a physical interpretation of sorrow and every Friday afternoon represents temporary freedom, something is broken.

“Life is like a ten-speed bicycle.  Most of us have gears we never use.”
Charles M. Schulz

Seems in life it is essential, to gear our mind to full potential. Please lend an ear, this you may want to hear.

There is no boasting if we’re only coasting. Results may be adverse if we’re forever in reverse.  Let’s move forward by pedaling toward, a favorable direction. The rut in the road, an act of deflection or an undesirable reflection?

We get out of bed, shake our head and we’re in first gear. What a great start, we’re thinking smart! Again, let’s pedal toward a positive direction; are you with me? Have you switched to second gear? Oh, but you must! There is still time to adjust.

C’mon, there’s no time for crying, you must keep trying. Do you want to be a wannabe throughout your life? No, the answer is not a new life. You can’t just buy a new life like you would buy a new bike!

We must be resourceful and not remorseful; squelch our fear and cultivate cheer. Now, are you with me? I’m so proud of you that you heeded my cue.

Seems in life it is essential, to gear our mind for full potential. Please lend an ear, this you may want to hear.

Get out of first gear!

Cheers!

Living a Full Life

 

Yesterday’s gospel reminds me again of the reason why He came:  in order that we might have a life- life in its fullness. But what is a life that is full after all? How can we measure if a life is full, half-full or as we often heard it, empty? Continue reading Living a Full Life

10 Steps to More Self-Love (3 min read)

Sometimes it can be challenging to love ourselves, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

Here are 10 steps to shifting into a more self-loving space.

1. Write down everything you love about yourself. Parts of your appearance, style, traits, behaviors, interests – anything and everything. Feel the love as you write them down. When you’re done, re-read the list to yourself as though you’re reading it to a loved one. Tell yourself, “I love __ about me. I love that I do ___. I love that I am ____.” Pay attention to the shifts in your energy and emotional state as you do this. This is why working with affirmations can be incredibly powerful.

My Personal Weight Loss Advice: Just Do It (2 min read)

Recently, I had the priviledge of appearing on a local news program for an interview about my weight loss experience.  It was a brief interview, but I received a lot of positive feedback about it.  The growth continued when the story was replayed online, via the station’s website.

Several viewers reached out to me, and asked me a few questions about my progress, and also asked for advice.  Therefore, I decided to post one of my responses here, in hopes that it will help those who are on the fitness and weight loss journey.

Let me mention though, that because of the path that I chose, it’s taken me some time.  Almost 3-4 years.  But that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be that long for anyone else.  There are certain steps that I took, while discussing this with my doctor, about what would be best for me since he’s been my doctor my entire life and he knew my family’s history.

TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR FIRST.  For instance, my mother passed away from congestive heart failure; my father passed away from cancer.  Plus, BOTH of my parents were diabetics.  Therefore, he watches my blood sugar and my blood pressure, and make sure there is a sustainable diet that can help me avoid these health issues.  He was worried about me a few years ago; now, he couldn’t be happier with me.

DO WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL THE MOST COMFORTABLE.  I tried many weight loss programs (i.e. Weight Watchers), but there were always some elements that didn’t fit well with me, or something that I didn’t enjoy.  Weight Watchers was OK for me at first, but the point system annoyed me.  I wasn’t too keen on the group meetings, either.  If you try to fit yourself into a box or premade program, you’re more apt to quit and gain back all the weight you lost.  The more you enjoy your program, the more fun you will have, and the more likely you are to see results.  That will motivate you to continue.

Luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to never have any kind of major illnesses, surgeries or diseases myself, so that was clearly at my advantage.  Here’s a list of the steps that I took to get my weight on track:

  1. WATER, WATER, WATER.  I can’t emphasize enough.  You will go to the bathroom more, but that’s the whole purpose.  It flushes the toxins out of your system and relieves your bloating.  I drink about a gallon of water a day.  DRINK LOTS OF WATER.
  2. MOVE MORE.  I joined a gym and enlisted the help of Assassins (personal trainers).  That accelerated the fat burning process and my weight started to really drop.  I find great joy in working out; I go to the gym at least four times a week (and meet with the trainer once a week).  But you don’t have to join a gym.  You can take a yoga class; go out walking or jogging; bike riding.  Take the stairs instead of an elevator, whenever it’s feasible.  The point is, you have to get the sweat going and get the fat cells burning with an increased metabolism.  You have to move.
  3. WATCH WHAT YOU EAT.  This is a no-brainer, but it’s true. There will be a lot of trial and error here, but that’s why all diets should be individualized.  Try out certain foods to see the affect it has on your body/weight gain.  For myself:  I gave up soda (I don’t even drink diet soda) and all carbonated drinks.  I gave up fried foods.  I limit my red meat.  I don’t eat pork.  No junk food.  No processed foods (i.e. frozen dinners).  I eat my produce as fresh and raw as possible.  I eat lots of chicken and fish.  Also, it helps if you plan your meals.
  4. SEEK OUT ENCOURAGEMENT.  This is a major change in your life, and you can’t do this alone.  I turn to my family, friends, social media and those at the gym/personal trainer, who give me encouragement.  You may be shy about your plans, but the more people who know, the more chances of accountability and motivation.

These are just the basics.  If you’d like some more info, just let me know.  I also included a link to my live television interview.  Hope this helps, and good luck!
