Improving Your Quality of Life

What if we focused on quality of life instead of paying attention to all the distractions, all the noise and ideas marketing wants us to believe? What if we paid attention to improving our quality of life, and realized what makes us feel better, gives us confidence, even improves our quality of sleep? Instead of counting calories, and stepping on the scale every moment of the day, what if we looked in the mirror and were proud of the person who looked back, what if we put on a new pair of jea...

Time isn’t relevant at all

Time is a funny thing. It’s relevant one might say. It’s almost comical listening to college students talk about time. Many college students don’t have a job when they’re in school, less college athletes have jobs. Very few have family responsibilities, meaning a spouse or children and the good majority of them go to class 3-4 hrs a day. Let’s pick on College Athletes because I was one. We/they went/go to school for a few hours a day, practice for an hour or two, might study for an hour and ma...

You don’t have to win you just have to keep playing

Isn’t it a bit odd that one person’s mind set is completely different than another’s. A suppose it’s not odd, I mean we’ve all come from different areas and different backgrounds; we’ve all been raised with different beliefs, even values and norms. But still the fact remains, what one person feels is impossible another will do and sometimes with ease. I set out to box jump 60 inches. Many feel this is impossible, however professional athletes do it all the time. Even on my way to 60, when I t...

Keep your fitness routine on track

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2iDp8cKwkc This morning it seemed like all the elements were against me to get to the gym. My alarm went off, I touched the floor with one toe, felt how cold it was and quickly snuggled back in. Then I thought no Dorothy you have a black dress hanging in your closet which is waiting to be worn in just 2 short weeks. So I dragged myself out of bed and got dressed. I looked outside and saw the car needed to be brushed off AGAIN like the 572nd time this week. ...

Being Good at Nutrition and Fitness

I recently went golfing the first time years. To my surprise it was actually fun and I wasn’t that bad. It was a little shaky when I first started out but I got better in the next couple rounds and slightly better as the rounds went on.   You know what stuck out to me the most was the inconsistency of my play. It seemed easy to hit a good shot or two but difficult to put a number of good shots together. Then of course I thought of health, fitness and nutrition. I thought about this h...
