Losing fat is a game between you and the outside world.
Everyone, from family to friends to co-workers to restaurant owners to TV advertisers are conspiring against you to make you eat more and exercise less. Like it or not, it's true.
They might not be doing it on purpose, or with bad intentions, but they are happier when you are fed, full, and flat out on the couch. You must always know your options.
You must have Plans A, B, C, D, and E. You must be prepared to counter-attack. When they say pizza, you say sushi. When they say take-out, you say, "I've already prepared my lunch". When they say, "Happy Hour", you say, "Workout first."
Surround yourself with people who are fitter and healthier than you.
Today's Kickbutt Time Management Tips:
If you're struggling with time now, make sure you go back and do a "time journal". Then ruthlessly plan your work day. The more work you can get done during work hours, the less time you'll have to steal from your family, friends, fitness, and fun hobbies. That's what is meant by getting more freedom from structure.
"Cherish time, your most valuable resource. You can never make up the time you lose. It's the most important value for any productive happy individual and is the only limitation to all accomplishment. To waste time is to waste your life. The most important choices you'll ever make are how you use your time." - Kekich Credo #2
Put a little urgency in your life
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
You are the type of person who takes action, doesn't complain, finds a way to get it done, and never gives up, right? The answer is yes, you are. Remember that during the tough times today.
"Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined." - Henry David Thoreau
