Real Life Advice

In an effort to build my knowledge base I’ve been subscribing to a lot of fitness blogs and pages recently.  I can’t believe how many opinions are out there on what to do and why.  Everyone has an opinion these days, it seems.  I just wanted to give out some quick real life advice when you come across any of these tips, techniques, or bits of wisdom yourself.

  • First of all, don’t believe everything you read!  Just because it’s posted on Facebook or in a blog doesn’t qualify it as fact.  You’ve got a built in ability to judge what’s may be legit and what’s not; go with your gut!
  • Remember that unfortunately, there really are no “get-rich-quick” or “lose-weight-fast” deals out there.  There just aren’t.  There are many different techniques and some work for some people and others work for other people.  Some don’t work for anybody!
  • Finally, just get back to basics.  We all know the deal.  We all really know what we’re supposed to be doing.  The biggest problem is we never want to just get up and do it.  Find your motivation whether it’s internal (willpower) or external (friends and a great class) and get it done.  Your reward will be how you feel not just at the end of whatever you’re about to embark on but, if you’ve chosen correctly, the rest of your life.
