Native American Blessing

May the sun bring you new energy by day.May the moon softly restore you by night.May the rain wash away your worries.May the breeze blow you new strength into your being.May you walk gently through the world you know and its beauty all the days of your life. Apache Prayer Have a great weekend and try to allow yourself to calm the mind even if it is just a few moments. 

Just Do It!

OK....so, I posted a video to my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/dmofitness) this morning with the caption, "You don't have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great".  I went on to say that "The hardest part of anything is to get started....just do it!  You will be glad you did".  AND....I tell people all the time that I completely understand how hard it is to start a health/fitness program....that starting is the most difficult part of it. 

What Makes Us Great?

Have you ever wondered, what makes us do what we do? Is it the body chemistry? Is it a result of our surroundings? Is it all just hard work and mental toughness? What is it? Why do some people just seem to have it? Maybe it’s in the books one reads, or the ability to maximize the potential that we all have in us. We are all destined to be great in our own areas. I decided to share examples as part of the proof in greatness and how it is achieved. 

The Allusion of Fear

Stepping foot in the gym is a daunting task. Fear, anxiety, and self doubt set in as you begin your fitness quest in an intimidating enviornment. Luckily, you are not alone. We all suffer from bouts of fear and anxiety. Growing up with a crippling fear of public speaking, I felt helpless and tended to avoid any situation that evoked such dreadful feelings. This approach did nothing but increase those negative feelings. I was stuck. The fix? Taking the first step and facing your fear head on. The funny thing about fear is that it isnt real.

Got inspiration?

Happy Monday!  Not just any Monday, the one after Daylight Savings time in the spring where you are a little groggy and "zombie-like" for the first few days.  However, I'm sure many of you are willing to deal with the fog knowing there will be more daylight in the evening and warmer temperaures.  

CONNECTING WITH THE FITNESS COMMUNITY

 One of my goals for 2015 was to be more active on my social media pages to help motivate and inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle. I started off with posting motivation quotes every morning, and motivational videos that I found on youtube. Youtube videos have been a huge impact on my fitness journey and will continue to be. Everyone should have some source of external motivation when they can't find any internal motivation to get them to workout.

Action vs. Procrastination

"I'm going to start working out next week!" Have you or are you currently saying this to yourself?

Resolutions

Are resolutions good or are they bad?  Is it good to set yourself up for failure?  Do people really stick to resolutions at all?  Here's what I think...I think we should never stop trying!  Never, never never!  I don't care how many times you fall flat on your face, just get right back up and do it again!
