Health (7)


Health is Simple

I recall a presentation that I gave to the teachers of Bridgewater-Raritan school district 10 years or so ago.

At the time, I was still teaching there.

I was asked to present to the BREA on nutrition.

Well, one of the ladies had a question about why she always struggling with diet and exercise.

I told her it was a matter of discipline, a terrible answer and something my young, dumber self believed. I was nothing else if not blunt with her. Hey, we all make mistakes and that was a huge mistake of mine, the way I handled it.

Yet, the point I was trying to get across (I just didn’t understand the brain yet), was that health was simple.

I didn’t say easy, making change in life is one of the hardest things in the world to do.

But once you decide and cut yourself off from all other options, the process is simple.

Move, sweat, eat foods with less than 5 ingredients, drink water and get enough sleep.

How’s that?

The real issue is in first figuring out what is blocking you from taking the first step, and that my friend, is where Mind Mapping comes in to play.

Why Do You Fear This?

Two Sundays ago, we had just picked the boys up from my parents as they gave us some time to hang and have a little date.

We love the boys the whole world full, but we make a point to carve out time to continue to working on our own loving relationship and marriage as well. (Remember, you must always put your own mask on first!)

Well, it was about 8 o’clock and when we got in my truck, the outside thermometer read 81 degrees.  Now, keep in mind that we only live 12 or so minutes from my parents, about a 5 mile drive.

Within 5 minutes on the way home, it began to rain torrentially and the temperature kept dropping.  By the time we pulled in, the thermometer read 63 degrees!  Crazy, an 18 degree drop in a matter of 10 minutes!

Devon thinks it weird that I get a kick out of such things, but realize how quickly things can change in life.  In this case, it was the temperature, but in your life, it may be a career, a relationship, your health and so on.

Change is the only constant, yet it’s the thing we fear most.  How about we learn to embrace it since it’s coming along or shall I say, taking us along for the ride anyhow.

Don’t Rip Up Your Money Like I Did

Don’t Rip Up Your Money Like I Did

On Monday morning, Munchie and I went out to run a few errands.

The first stop on the way to Devon’s school Halloween parade was to the bank.  Munchie was taking a quick catnap in the back of the truck, so I made it snappy.

I made a deposit and took out a little cash.  I stuffed the cash in my pocket and forgot about it.

We made it to Devon’s school on time and wound up staying for the classroom party.  Munchie is always a big hit with her third grade students.

The Munch man and I were out for a little bit longer than I expected, which meant that he and Dax and Mateena were all going to be hungry for lunch .

Well, I whipped up some food for him and gave the pups their food.  All was good.  10 minutes later, as they were all finishing up, I took Braxton out of his high chair and put him down so he could run around.

Meanwhile, I was making a quick call.  I don’t know if it was Munchie or Dax (Dax loves to put his nose in my pocket to see if I have any treats in there), but one of them took a few twenties out of my pocket.

I didn’t realize that though until I heard a ripping and tearing noise a minute or two later.  Even at that point, I still didn’t give it much thought.  I was thinking Dax had gotten a paper towel or something.

And then, I walked around the corner and saw it.  Two twenty dollar bills completely shredded!

I had to laugh at the situation.  The little rascals had fooled me.

While that’s an example of literally throwing money away, there are so many areas of your life in which you are probably of the opportunity or cost mindset which is just another way to throw away your money.

If everything is an expense, then you will opt for the cheaper and inferior option.  The option that promises the quick fix.

Where can you start using an investment mindset in your life rather than the ‘get rich quick’ mindset?

If you’ve been spinning your wheels for years with your health and fitness regiment, now is the time to start using an investment mindset towards it.  You can apply for one of our limited 3-WTD spots here. http://www.newellstrength.com/3wtd

The Guy that Had Two Livers

The Guy that Had Two Livers

Stop.

Before you go looking up whether or not humans have two livers, let me save you the time.  We don’t.

We have two kidneys.

But just one liver.

Recently, a ‘big shot’ personal trainer was telling me about how one of his clients had to get a liver removed.

And how the client’s brother donated one of his livers to the cause.

A great and noble thing indeed.  But you don’t have two livers.

This personal trainer, much like the infamous Tool Boy would do, was spouting out about liver health and nutrition, yada yada yada.

No, this was not a slip of the tongue.  He kept repeating it over and over.

Unfortunately, this is how most personal trainers are.

They try to teach and educate about things they have no clue about.

They try things on clients that they themselves have never done.  (But it sure did look cool in the magazines).

Personal trainers are a flighty bunch.

Coaches on the other hand are much harder to find.

A true coach will inspire, teach through stories and BE a mirror into the client.

A true coach knows that very often, it’s not a lack of information that is the problem.

It’s a lack of inspiration.  It’s a poor ‘brain set’, but it’s not a lack of information.  If it were, Google would be able to solve everything.

What’s Scarier, Michael Myers, Freddy Kreuger or Staying ‘Fat’?

What’s Scarier, Michael Myers, Freddy Kreuger or Staying ‘Fat’?

It’s Monster Mash Day.

And that means that as I write this I am listening to the ‘Monster Mash’ on and endless loop.

You do know that I love Halloween, right?

Little Mikey Myers was compared to the boogeyman in the original ‘Halloween’ movie.  He was an unstoppable force that came back to finish a job.

Freddy, my first horror movie hero, would actually haunt you in your dreams.

You weren’t safe when you were asleep and then he figured out how to come to the reality dimension, which meant you weren’t safe anywhere.

Scary dudes to say the least.

But are they really as scary as staying ‘fat’?

I put fat in parentheses because it doesn’t mean fat as you know it.  Yes, you may be overweight or maybe your energy is terrible.

It doesn’t matter.

We all have our own version of what it feels like to be ‘fat’.

And the thing that’s holding you back is fear.

Fear of change.

Fear of the unknown.

Fear of disrupting your current lifestyle routine.

Fear of the lack of a plan.

Go back to what old Ben did in an earlier email from this week; simply make a list of what you need to do to start.

Now, I’ll admit that going into an unknown environment (a new gym) can be scarier of all the horror movie characters put together.

You aren’t sure if the people will be nice.  You aren’t sure of what to do.  Heck, you may not even be sure of where the bathrooms are or how to sign in.

There are just so many things that can cause us to go into a feeling overwhelm.

Here’s your chance to just be pleasantly whelmed, not over, not under, just whelmed.

Check out our Fall Sweepstakes, the chance to win 5 FREE week of personal training and more with us at Newell Strength.

We eliminate all the unknowns and we will coach you through every step of the way.

There’s only 10 days left until we close the doors.

Have You Ever Dropped Your Beer Twice on One Walk?

Have You Ever Dropped Your Beer Twice on One Walk?

I bet you haven’t.

Because most people don’t walk around with beer.

But I decided to multi-task.

While taking Dax and Mateena for a walk the other night, I decided to treat myself to a nice pumpkin beer.

The only problem is that I, like you, only have two hands.

You do the math: two leashes, 1 beer, two hands.

Needless to say, I dropped my beer twice on the walk.

I salvaged some of it and amazingly the bottle didn’t break on either fall.

I was trying to juggle too much at once.

Multi-tasking is dangerous and the brain can’t really do it.

It’s a waste of ener-geez.

Trying to figure out how to fulfill all the roles you play in life is tough.

You need time to ‘put your own mask on first’.

With that in mind, we are getting ready for two November challenges, our Fit Moms and Ripped Dads program.
