No excuses, Just go get it.

Too many people have excuses why not to be healthy and fit. "I am too busy, I don't have time, I am too tired, I had to pick my kids up from school, I don't have money, the list goes on an on. Listen, I am here to tell you those are B.S. excuses. You can make time for your workouts. Be a little more organized. Working out will actually increase your energy throughout the day. Instead of going home, drinking a glass of wine and watching TV, go to the gym and workout. Your energy will soar. Ok, go pick up your kids at school and then take them to the gym with you. Most gyms have child care programs. If they are old enough, workout with them. If the weather is acceptable go to a park and run around with them. Be active. You do not need money to be in shape. At every park there is monkey bars. There you go, you can do pull-ups, get down and do push-ups, perform some planks, perform bodyweight split squats, and run some sprints. I always tell people that I can work them out with no equipment. Just a determined mind and a hard worker is all I need.

We have to have a positive mental attitude. You will never accomplish your goals if you are negative and have excuses. We have a choice every day of our Life to either live healthy or not. Eat a cheeseburger and fries or chicken and vegetables, drink a protein smoothie or have a chocolate shake, drink water or drink beer. These are all choices we can make on a daily basis. Which choice will you make??? It is your decision. Learn to have self control. You will feel better, have more energy, be healthy, stay away from the doctor, and people will be attracted to your positivity.

Life is not just about working out and being fit. You need balance. But I truly believe if you are in shape and feel good about yourself, you will appreciate everything around you so much more. You do not need that daily 2 glasses of wine a night. You do not need to smoke those cigarettes. You do not need to eat those high fatty foods. You need to be healthy. Eat healthy, be consistent with your workouts and watch your vitality just soar.

If you are reading this and saying to yourself, "this is B.S.", then step out of that bubble and get your butt to the gym. You need a workout and you need some good food. And then watch your attitude change.

Stay up, stay positive and stay driven!
