Rise above!

Everytime someone tempts you or seems to be sabotaging you, remember, you need only overcome your own desires and they will be like planets in their own orbit and you in yours. Mastery over others is nothing. Mastery over self is everything.

don't make it epic

It isn't a war or a battle or anything like that. Commit to living a healthy life and improving wherever you can. If you make it too epic, failures become epically magnified. Stay in the moment and stay strong. Forgive yourself if you fall off and move on.

Be in the moment!

The past is memories and the future is unwritten. The only thing you can change is the present. Be in the moment and make the future you want!

not all carbs are created equal!

Beware of any bread or flour that is bleached or "enriched." This just means that the vitamins have been stripped out and replaced. They don't survive the baking process and results in empty carbs with no nutritional value. Go for whole grain instead!

It's in your head!

Success begets success. Stay positive and be proud of your achievements. These will help build momentum that will transform your life. Celebrate your successes and do not get stuck on the failures. It's ok to fail so long as you get back into the fight!

my goal

With every choice you make, especially food choices in weight loss, always ask yourself, how does this get me closer to my goal?
