  • Arm yourself with THIS to take control over any bad mood...

    I was in a bad mood the other day and didn't feel like working out. As I was driving by the gym, two people came out of a nearby barber shop, one of whom was a younger man in a wheel chair. My mindset began to shift. I got into the gym and started to warm up and realized the man next to me had a prosthetic lower leg. God was clearly showing me that the things that got me into a bad mood were merely inconveniences, and nothing close to real problems. The number one differentiator between those who achieve their goals and those who fall short? What you do when things become inconvenient. The fact is, we're creatures of habit and we all like to have a sense of consistency and control (to ....

  • Mastering the Infinite Game of Fitness: Why Consistency Trumps Winning

    Sticking to a consistent workout routine can feel like a constant uphill battle. We set ambitious goals, muster up the motivation to hit the gym, only to find ourselves falling off track at the slightest bump in the road. But what if I told you there's a mindset shift that could revolutionize the way you approach fitness? Enter Simon Sinek's concept of the infinite game, as outlined in his book "The Infinite Game." Unlike finite games with clear beginnings and endings, infinite games have no distinct endpoint. They're about staying in the game for the long haul, rather than striving to "win." Think about it: Your career, your marriage, and yes, your fitness journey, are all infinite ....

  • How to conquer emotional eating...

    Do you ever find yourself reaching for snacks when stress levels rise or emotions run high? You're not alone. Emotional eating and bingeing are common frustrations many of us face on our journey to better health. But fear not, there's a powerful strategy from James Clear's book "Atomic Habits" that can help turn the tide: strategic environment design. Inconvenience the Temptation One effective way to tackle emotional eating is by making it inconvenient. Take, for instance, those tempting cookies that seem to call your name in moments of stress. Instead of keeping them easily accessible, stash them in a hard-to-reach spot that requires a step stool or small ladder. By adding a physical ....

  • How I lost weight by eating MORE...Protein

    A few years back I started taking my nutrition more seriously. I started tracking my food and paying attention to all of my macronutrients. What I found is what we find with almost everyone we work with: I was not eating nearly enough protein. Changes started happening quickly once I started getting enough protein, and there is a ton of research to support this. Here are a few reasons why having a high protein diet is so powerful… 1. Increased Thermogenesis: Protein requires more energy (calories) to digest compared to fats and carbohydrates, leading to a higher thermic effect of food (TEF). This means that your body burns more calories during the digestion process, ....

  • How I rebuilt my mental health with exercise

    Mental health has been a hot topic as of late, and it’s become another one of those areas that can feel overwhelming because of all the different advice we’re getting on social media. I’m not a mental health professional, but after going through depression and alcoholism after my best friend was murdered, I’d like to share what worked for me. To cut to the chase, I’ve learned that without movement, there’s little chance to get out of any sort of mental rut that you’re in. It could be a bad day, significant depression, or somewhere in between. If you’re not taking care of your physical health, you’re not giving yourself a realistic ....

  • How training helped create a Disney World memory I'll never forget...

    We just got back from an amazing trip to Disney world with our son Jaxson, and I can’t help but share a story with you. As I’m sure many of you can relate, a trip to Disney with your family requires a lot of physical and mental energy. 20,000 steps a day, long lines and all the expenses involved will test anyone. Jaxson was a machine. He didn’t take any naps and rode all the rides until he couldn’t keep his eyes open.One of the rides he really wanted to go on was a ride called Slinky Dog Dash inside Toy Story Land at Hollywood studios. Usually you’d book lightning lane pass for the rides you really wanted to go on, but Kate and I figured he was ....
