Instead of New Years Resolutions, Focus on This

I never make "New Year's Resolutions". I have nothing against them, but let's be real, I completely forget about them in a couple of weeks. Yup, guilty. Resolutions can also mean "fixing a problem". Sure, we all got through shit in life. However, I don't things should necessarily be seen as problems that need fixing. A lot of people also tend to make resolutions based on themselves, which is the main reason why I don't think you need to think of yourself as a "problem". The good thing about a new year, is to leave whatever happened in the year before behind you. You live and you learn. Everything that happens in life is a learning opportunity, whether it was something good or something bad. That's life. Instead of making … [Read more...]

Can You Reach Your Fitness Goals Without Tracking Macros?

Some of you reading this may be macro enthusiasts, and some of you may be asking "what the heck is a macro?"

How To Not Allow Fear Hold You Back in Life

Lets talk fear. Even saying the word can get your skin crawling, no? I know it does for me. I feel as if everyone can relate to fear in various different ways and for various different situations. Sure, it can mean something you have a literal fear of, such as heights, or cockroaches lets say. However, the type of fear I'm talking about is the one that hold's you back from the things you want to do and accomplish in your life. You know, the siamese twin to the phrase "what if". Don't even get me started on this "what if" character. It certainly has the ability to dictate the decisions you make in your life - I know it has for me in the past. Have you ever wanted to do something, but you were afraid that you were going to fail? Yup. I'm … [Read more...]

What Inspires You?

I actually like Monday's. I know, I know. Don't hate me. I mean, maybe the fact that I usually work weekends has something to do with it, but it also feels like a fresh start. It's getting back into a routine, being productive, and a chance for you to set your week on a good note. Honestly, I want to live a life that doesn't include me dreading Monday's. I want to be happy and have a life that makes me enjoy every single day - even a Monday. Who's with me? Since i'm getting back into blogging again after focusing almost all my time on school and YouTube (still there, don't worry!), I want more of a schedule. I figured what better day than Monday to have kind of like an inspirational series. Either a topic that inspires you, motivates … [Read more...]
