Being ugly just to be ugly is a nasty condition that is running rampant in our society. Whether its opposing religious or political views or stirring conflicts with someone's level of fitness, social media trolls are set on making your life HELL. The answer to the problem doesn't start with them however, it's starts with you. Not only your response to their negativity but the level positivity you bring to the world as well.

Recognize that you have to not only have the mental grit to take it to the next level you'll also need to lean into several lifestyle anchors to keep you balanced and focused.

There are literally hundreds of fitness options available for even the pickiest consumer. Introvert ... no problem, stream fitness to the basement. No time ... no problem, set up a bike service, or home gym so you can grind at your convenience. Prefer the group atmosphere ... no problem, there is a plethora of options to choose from. And yet... we get bored, distracted, and disenchanted. The need to keep things fresh coupled with an "80/20" lifestyle can leave folks confused and unfocused.
We've got you covered.
The holiday season is fast approaching, which means there is a greater opportunity to take-in more food and drink calories while simultaneously producing less with your fitness (too tired, too lazy, social functions, lack of vitamin D, whatever). We'll review how to go on the offensive this season so you can still have fun, drink and be merry, and not end up with a post-holiday gut.
Happy 50th BTDB Listeners!!
It's not all about what the scale says - seeing progress on the scale doesn't correlate to adopting a healthy lifestyle. At the end of the day people are people and if you don't give a sh*t for you ... your progress won't last.
Lots of folks work hard to hide their age. Mostly these are attempts to change the external image of one's self while downplaying or ignoring what's going on inside. Lifestyle, of course, can determine how rapidly we age (and how hard). It seems as if we like to pretend the process is limited to genetics but the stat shows we're more susceptible to outcomes based on choices rather than what mom and dad left us with.
In a society of tender feelings. Now you can't say something to somebody that's factually true. If truth hurts, you're not supposed to say it. I mean, it's cool to do every other kind of, you know, lie, but when you actually have to make somebody confront what's going on with them, calling somebody out on their crap, it's just not cool anymore. You know? So if somebody is living up, you know, if somebody is living a life that you think that it's putting them in danger, their own health and fitness, you're not allowed to point that out. We've got friends that, they always offer to help in business. They say "How can I help your business?" Like, well, if you can randomly, roll up to people and tell them they're fat and they need to go workout at my gym, go for it.
But that's never going to be welcomed. That's not gonna. That's not a conversation. And I can't really be like, Hey, do you know a John Doe? So he left your name and number and said that I should get in contact with you because you have a weight problem.
