Happy Turkey Day… Have An Awesome Thanksgiving!

happy-turkey-dayThis won’t be a blog post about how to make Thanksgiving healthy. If you really want to know how to do that, I have plenty of articles that explain surviving the holidays. Instead, let’s just give homage to this awesome day and the meal that comes from it. It’s the day that everyone cooks food and gets together. The kind of stuff we should all do more often. There is no expectation of gifts and none of the commercialization baggage that comes with Christmas… Thanksgiving is all of the good and none of the fluff. In fact, I think Christmas should just be Thanksgiving all over again. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Happy Turkey Day

So this year be thankful, eat hearty, and enjoy your friend and family. That’s what it’s about! Thanks for stopping by and saying hi and we will see you on the healthy eating and fitness tip tomorrow.  ;)

Choose Calories Wisely… Real Nutrition Talk

choose-calories-wiselyPeople count calories. It’s how we diet. If you’re paying attention to what you are eating, you probably have some limitation to the number of calories you can eat each day. Poor diet plans sometimes have incredibly low calorie restriction… which usually leads to some sort of food blowout. The thing that I’ve learned over the years with healthy eating and maintaining my weight loss… is that caloric intake is great to know… but it’s not the most important factor. While you do have to watch the number of calories you eat to some degree (you can’t eat 5000 calories and expect to lose weight in most cases)… actually choosing the optimal food that your calories come from will make a much larger impact on your result. That’s why I say choose calories wisely.

The Latest And Why I Haven’t Been Blogging

coach-ryan-why-bloggingOkay. A few people have commented about my lack of blogging lately… wondering if I am still doing what I do. The answer is YES! I’m busier than ever! That’s why I have been blogging so little. It’s been a crazy ride since mid summer and I am just now coming out of the haze. I figured that before I jump right back on the health, fitness, and motivational writing… that we just catch up a little first. Sound good? It’s been crazy… but in a great way. Let me explain.

Time Flies And We Have Fun… But Also Nothing Changes

time-flies-and-we-have-funJanuary is the month to be motivated. Then it’s NFL playoffs and all about that. The weather is terrible in February but at least in March there is Basketball and Golf. Soon enough Memorial day weekend comes signaling summer and fun weekend plans. Everyone loves summer and 4th of July is always a blast, right? August is so hot and Labor day is the last weekend to really enjoy summer. BBQ’s and parties. Somewhere we find time for a vacation or two. Then suddenly fall and football is back (I love this time of year)! And playoff baseball? And who doesn’t love Halloween? Slightly fast forward and it’s all about Thanksgiving and Christmas. New Years Eve to round out the year and start the whole thing over again. This is a year in review (every year really). Time flies and we have fun.
