I’ve been there, I feel like a lot of people have. The time in your life where you either watch an inspirational movie or see someone on Instagram with an amazing physique and think “I’m going to get on my gym grind and get shredded!”. So the next week you start up and begin to actually enjoy yourself with the health benefits that come along with exercise, but after that initial week or month is up you quickly realize that it’s a very challenging and long commitment if you want to get results. This realization causes so many to become discouraged and slowly drift away from the gym, I went through this stage 3 times my first year of training before I fully engaged myself. It’s a vicious cycle that will keep you in it’s path unless you find these 3 key factors.

There are a lot of people who don’t have time to do marathon workouts, and there are also a lot of people who just don’t want to. However, you realize that working out is important to your health so you suck it up and train. Lucky you for the days of ineffective two hour workouts are over. Believe it or not there is a way to get results in less than an hour each workout, and it’s called HIT (High Intensity Training).

Toiling with the earth and fighting a year-long battle against nature, farmers hope for high yields from the perfect crop.  Even though the farmer knows that nature will always win (for she has an arsenal at her disposal), the farmer seeks to control that which cannot be contained.  Untameable, nature arbitrarily sends drought, flood, ice, and weeds.  One such challenge is the feral stinging nettle plant.

Staying Focused (1 min read)

Everyone is so busy.We juggle so much in a 24 hour period, it is hard to comprehend how we even get half of it done. Sometimes it’s easy to slip into getting discouraged or feeling a little less than optimistic about your future and what you are working towards. Here are three tips to meditate on. Hopefully they will help you to stay focused and persistent, even when everything else around you seems crazy.

  1. Set a goal – this doesn’t have to be a big, long term goal, in fact, I recommend setting small goals every day that you are more likely to achieve. They could be as simple as working out for 15 minutes, practicing a new skill you are interested in learning, etc.  The feeling of accomplishing something every day becomes addicting, and teaches you discipline that will help you in the long run to achieve bigger goals that span over a longer timeline.
  2. Embrace Optimism – there is no doubt that you will struggle with your daily activities, work load, and things you would like to accomplish both professionally and personally. Some days will feel more productive than others, but embracing an attitude of optimism will help in each and every situation. If you can train your mind to see everything as an opportunity to become something great, you will slowly but surely start to naturally think this way. In a world where everything can change in any moment, having an optimistic spirit will definitely help you stay focused on the good things rather than the bad or disappointing.
  3. Learn to bend – Staying optimistic is only half the battle. Sometimes you will need to change direction in what you originally thought would help you complete your goal or task. When this moment happens, a great skill to have is the ability to be able to switch your focus. Sometimes you have to attack your goal from a different angle or perspective than you originally mapped out. Being able to change directions, and tackle your tasks a different way instead of giving up will really help you to stay persistent in completing and achieving what you initially set out to accomplish.

Hopefully these tips and tricks will help you on your journey to finding balance in life.  Also, don’t forget to take time for yourself daily and meditate on who you are, where you are going, and what you want to accomplish. You can read more about positive thinking and motivation here.

Do you think healthy food prep only involves adding in the vegetables? Or not using so much butter, or not frying your foods?

When you study culinary chemistry even a little, you begin to understand how compounds form, and possibly harmful chemical reactions. You would also learn that the processes we use for convenience, such as freezing food, takes away somewhat from its nutritional content.
