“I’ve come from nowhere, and I'm not shy to go back.”

“I’ve come from nowhere, and I'm not shy to go back.” - Jason Statham

Taking a little step back here, resetting the brain, body and soul. A new year tends to make people feel they need to reevaluate. But for me mid December I signed up for a 12 week program with an actual trainer to get myself out of the funk I was in. Knowing where I had started, which was a cardio crazed person years ago, who wanted to be healthy to the person I am today, my mind, body and soul have completed morphed into a more confident person, that can do anything. It just takes one moment to change it all. And that moment for me was when I changed my lifestyle. Because this is not a diet, or exercise program. It is a lifestyle. How I live. I carry food, gym daily, walk with friends and stay active as often as I can. Of course I enjoy life, have some wine with friends and enjoy some froyo. Who doesn't? It is about living life to the fullest, but knowing where I came from and knowing what I have been able to overcome throughout the year is just simply amazing.

Life is about what you put into it, good, bad. You can walk around how ever way you want, but if you don't have your mind in check you don't have your true-self together. For me, this lifestyle is something I can control. I can hear people outside my world--telling me they don't understand my goals, or my lifestyle, and they complain about their lifestyle, or problems..weight..not healthy, etc. But really there is no way around it, if you don't have your body in check you got nothing. You get one chance at this. One body. And if you fill it with crap, well you will fell like crap. I am not telling anyone need to be 100% gun ho like me due to my lifestyle, I am not some crazy cult like that. But find something you are completely passionate about to keep you motivated, keep you going and your body in check. Your brain will thank you and you will lead a better, more successful day to day life.

Regardless, be willing to reset, go back at anytime at any point. Remember where you started, remember who you are and what you wish to be. At any time you are in control no one else is taking the wheel for you. So put down the nail file and ding dongs, take a moment to think..hmm What can I do to better myself and the people around? The answer might surprise you and by you being a better you, it will help others around you.

To all my followers have a great new year! Work hard and never give up!
