Well, we are getting close to the end of the first month of 2010. I know many of you are in the beginning stages of keeping your New Year Resolutions by getting in shape and eating better and maybe even getting on a crash diet.
Of course, doing all this can provide some success for you and it may just be the impetus and the jump start you need in getting you on the right track to complete healthiness !!
But I will have to tell you from my experience long term Success in keeping in shape and staying lean and slim is based on a long term change in your Lifestyle and Mindset !!
This is just pretty much fact !! Now there is nothing wrong with finding a diet to start out on to quickly lose a few pounds in a short period of time. So long as you realize that it is only a tip toe in the right direction. However, you must then commit yourself to a long term way of Life that involves being smart in what you eat and how you eat as well as keeping a regular exercise regimen that you can do every week for many years.
You ever see that old cartoon where the tortoise and the rabbit race each other in a marathon ? Well, the rabbit starts out fast and is miles ahead of the tortoise. But he is unable to keep such a fast pace so eventually the tortoise catches up and wins the race. Well, you need to be like the tortoise in your own life and realize that staying healthy and eating right and exercising is a long term endeavour. And you will only see real results after a period of time. So keep a steady pace just like that tortoise did !!
I also think that applying Visualization into your mode of thinking can go along way in your efforts to lose weight and stay healthy. Everyday you need to take a step back , close your eyes and Visualize where you want to be in a few months and a few years and what you need to do to get there. Do this on a regular basis. Actually, come up with a picture of the body you want and re enforce that everyday by doing little things that will put you on track to achieving it. Ab example would be instead of snacking on a piece of pizza in midday why dont you carry around an Apple that you can much on. Or instead of taking your car to the store down the block just walk to it.
Do things like this on a continual basis and eventually it will become second nature and it will become a permanent part of your life and spirit. !!

Hello guys……….i hope you are having a great 2010 !! Can you believe it is the start of a new decade ?? Where did the last one go to so fast ?? Geesh, you remember Y@K ?? That seems like yesterday.
Anyway, I know many of you are going all out to get in shape and get healthy and slim. Well, that is a good thing but always remember folks that staying slim and healthy is a long term endeavour so please be patient with it !!
Anyway, today I just wanted to briefly go over something that many people have a misconception about. The reason I bring this up is because I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine yesterday, He was talking about how he was trying a new form of weight loss that involved just doing push ups and sit ups and that was it !!
We argued for 30 minutes as he insisted that by doing just the sit ups alone that he would lose the 20 lbs in no time that he wanted so badly to do.
Well, folks I will tell you now that you CANNOT spot reduce weight on your body. You can do all the sit ups you want but if you do not eat right and do not get some cardio in you will NEVER lose any weight.
What will happen is you will have muscles around your Abs but no one will ever see them because of the layer of fat on top of it.
This is the sad reality.
So bottom line: Along with your sit ups you need to incorporate things like running,swimming, biking, hiking, skiing, walking etc… to see any weight reduction.
Of course you need to eat healthy on top of all this !!
So cheers to a great 2010 !!
