Well I’ve decided to follow my theme of consistency with my posting. I think I will have posts about my workouts (mainly to keep myself accountable) every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. So without further ado, today’s workout was a bit of a struggle. Although I still ran one decent mile, the other was a little lackluster. Next run day is Monday and I hope to do better then.

There are some very good points in his post. As I will talk about soon, part of losing weight deals with the choices that we make. It’s important to take the time to go to the gym and to do things that are good for your health. The future of your life depends on it!
Tip for the day:
I guess the one piece of advice and wisdom I could pass on, is that in my experience weight loss and really anything in life is about small steps towards a goal. You wouldn’t expect to become CEO of a corporation overnight right? I mean that would be awesome, but very unlikely. Instead you would fulfill all the duties necessary to become that CEO over time. You would probably go to business school somewhere and get a degree. Then you would start out in a low to mid level position. Then you would fulfill your duties to a T and even go above and beyond. The point is it is the same with anything else in life, especially weight loss. It is necessary to take the small steps because they help to build a foundation for your future successes.
So, the question then is what are some small steps that have worked for me?
1. 30 minutes of any type of exercise a day.
2. Regulating when my meals occur.
3. Sleep for at least 7 hours a night.
