People will sell you whatever they think sounds good in order to take your money: "5 Steps to Skinny Thighs", "4 Weeks to Six Pack Abs", "101 Ways to Lose Weight". I really wish these people would switch to selling used cars, because most of us can't be fooled into buying a car with brakes that don't work. However, many of us fall victim to one of the biggest American paradoxes of the 21st century, we are an unhealthy nation obsessed with health. The list of fad diets available to you on the internet or in the form of books should be a downright crime. I mean, the Grapefruit Diet? Who thinks of these things! Well, regardless if this offends you and deters you to Facebook, I'm here to keep it real with you and burst that silly bubble our society has created that makes us think we can have a healthy body without putting in real work.
Where many of us go wrong, and I will admit even myself at times, is that we've been programmed to believe we need to look a certain way, and we compare ourselves to that unrealistic image. We compare ourselves to the Calvin Klein and swimsuit models, and think that this is what we should look like. Then we start believing that I need/have to lose weight, I want a beach body, I want a six pack, I need to fit into my wedding dress. What we don't realize, is that setting these vanity-driven goals is the first step to failure. I'll let you in on a real secret, that really shouldn't be a secret at all, if you want to achieve all these outcomes, then you need to reprogram your mindset.
Our goals are certainly individually driven, and that's great... it's what makes us human. But two values I think we can all agree rank high on our list of goals are good health and happiness. Without your health you can't be your best for your family, friends, partner, etc., and in reality, happiness is one byproduct of good health. Thus, these are the things we should be focused on and reprogramming our mindset to: the want for good health and happiness. A better you is a beautiful thing for everyone around you. Imagine the day where you wake up feeling stronger, more mobile, in less pain, and with more energy throughout the days. Aren't these goals worth pursuing? I have no idea who you are, but I want you to have these things, and that is exactly why I've created this site. So what are you waiting for? Today's the day to make yourself!
