Excuses and Want

1462912_10152365717333696_565364468_nEveryday there will be something that provides a distraction to what you have set forth to accomplish. Excuses are what will let them be successful. They will play on weakness and only bring forth exactly what you have gotten so far. To maintain your discipline and achieve your goal all you have to do is want it bad enough.

Most people only kind of want to accomplish their goals, mainly because they want the sugary junk food, carb loaded pastas, and hip hugging creams more than looking in the mirror and be pleased with the better physical version of themselves that brings along better health, immune defense, and self-esteem. All of which amounts to the Better You. Become the minority by making a decision to really accomplish what the heart and mind desire.

pe-biocharge-largeIt is all about wanting enough. Wanting enough to move heaven and earth or just reach past the soft drinks to the bottled water. It is about wanting enough to not wait until someone has one foot in the grave to change or even until tomorrow. Want it now, want it so bad that you can taste it in your spit. That is how bad you have to want it to overcome excuses. You can do it! You will earn it. You will be a Champion! You will be the Better You!

Coming Up Short

open-uri20121222-17485-9jvq36What we eat is what provides the fuel for our bodies along with the materials that will be used to build it up. The question is how does the food you eat make you feel? You feel sluggish? You feel fatigued? You feel bloated? You feel heavy? You feel fat? When the body does not get the vitamins and minerals it needs then these feelings come. Fact of the matter is that without nutrients the body is not satiated and does not replenish itself appropriately. Even when a person is eating a balanced meal the food itself is not nutrient dense, meaning that you would have to eat an exorbant amount of it and it still would not have enough of what is needed for optimum performance and growth. That is why supplements are so necessary in todays modern diet to not come up short.

In the modern factory farm system the soil does not replensish its nutrients so fertilizers are used and these ferilizers do not have the full spectrum of nutrients that would be provided through the natural growth and decay process. Yielding crops that may be more numerous and bigger, but not rich in what the body needs for health. When the needs are not met you stay hungry, which can in turn increase fat storage, create health issues, sickness, and imbalance. To overcome this an intense fitness regimen is key along with a healthy lifestyle that includes a supplement regimen that incorporates the lack of vitamins and minerals.

Achieving intake of vitamins and minerals allows the body to balance out, giving more energy to perform throughout the day. It permits top performance of the body that sheds unnecessary pounds to bring forth the Better You, who is vibrant and can take on the world. The amount of fitness that is done determines the speed of the accomplishment and is what builds up the discipline to stay healthy and become the vision that you want to put forth.

Well Built or Well Greased

funny-pic-inside-human-body-foodWhich describes you? Eating nutritious foods, working out, and taking supplements will work wonders in creating the chiseled, well defined, and well built you. Eating fat food, sitting on your rump, and being on the computer all day will create the typical picture of an American, well greased.

From this point forward accept the challenge to build the Better You! Through identifiying the root causes of setbacks a foundation can be made and construction begin. First, how do you feel about your energy level? mental attitude? self-image? What fear has held up the progress? The mind must determine what needs to be accomplished and what the desired finished product is to visualize how to get to the end result.

Now, it is about action! Constantly tell the little negative voice STFU! You have decided to be the Better You and that is what is going to happen. People know the foods to avoid and the little actions that will bring them closer to the goal, just do them. There are no ribbons for good effort and there is change only through completion. Plan your work and work your plan!

Its not the enemy that you must fight, its the inner me that you must build.

Let’s Talk Food Money

bullshitThe average breakfast costs $5, most people just have a coffee or a coffee and a pastry. Multiply that by 5 days a week and 4 weeks in a month, we get $100. The average lunch costs $12, if you want fat food (I mean fast food) you are really only saving $3-4. Multiply that by 5 days a week and 4 weeks in a month, we get $240. The average dinner costs $17, this is not counting adult beverages or tip. Multiply that by 5 days a week and 4 weeks in a month, we get $340. This is $34/day, $170/week, and $680/month that is spent on food that for the most part is highly processed, unhealthy, and genetically modified.

If you say that is not what I spend SMACK YOURSELF, every sentence in question started with “the” then said “average”. Your poor diet is messing with your cognitive abilities. Make adjustments for your personal case. Now think about every time you said “no” to yourself, your spouse, your children, or your friends because you did not have money. More than likely a different reason was given, but the root is based off of money. This quick calculation is based off one person, what happens when it is a second in a household? when it is the children as well? How much is being spent on crap?

A change needs to be made and it begins with a challenge. One that cleans up your body from all that processed junk. Then, gives your body the vitamins and minerals that it needs to build the Better You. Finally, if you are going to get healthy save money doing it and if you are really serious make money by helping others.

Fat Food

1017103_533387793391149_1245480827_nEating on the go is about the worst thing that a person can do for their health. Consider that if the food is cheap, so is the quality.

Preparation is the key factor in convenient eating. Grabbing a meal replacement shake, snack bar, breakfast bar, fruit, trail mix, or wrap is a fast economical alternative to the fat food restaurants. The difference being preparing it before you are in need of it.

For a meal ready to eat, make casseroles to get a balance of the food groups and in large enough quantity to last a few days. That way it just requires heating in the oven. Stay away from microwaves, it kills what small nutrient value foods have.

Making food at home is far more economical than eating out and will provide better nutrition and be higher quality than what you will get in 99% of the restaurants you pass. The average meal is $10-15 each while brown bagging it will cost maybe $20-$30 for an entire weeks worth. It just takes some fore thought and planning to accomplish.

Think in terms of the 6 P’s: Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance

Furthermore the impact that you will have on your health knows no value. The side effects accredited to the junk that passes for fat food are numerous. Save yourself time and money! The Better You craves what is good for you and we just need to map out the route to make it happen. Achieve your success!
