5/31/11 - Gratitude

Often times in my life I am hit with huge waves of gratitude. I make it an effort to have awareness to the things I am grateful for, but we can’t ever be too thankful. Living essentially in paradise with great health, chasing my dreams, and having people in my life that love and support me is a world away from where most people are, and for that I am grateful.

Team work on the Bluff

Memorial Day is another wave of gratitude for me, though. I think it is important to just sit and realize the magnitude of the idea that there are countless people of past and present that are willing to trek through the darkest, scariest corners of the Earth to maintain the freedoms we have.

Starting each day with gratitude is a powerful perspective. Recognize what you have and what is available to you, and be grateful. Then…

the next step is taking responsibility of it all and maximizing you. Start today!

Be grateful.

Become remarkable.

Time and time again I hear this as a “reason” for not training. Reluctantly, I will let you continue to call this excuse a “reason.” Fortunately for such believers, though, there is no such thing as being in shape enough to train at FFOTB! You are perfectly ready with where you are at, exactly wherever it is you may ...

Wikipedia defines, Functional Training as:“Functional training involves mainly weight bearing activities targeted at core muscles of the abdomen and lower back.

Though I am not an avid blog follower, I read an outstanding one the other day that a friend shared on the topic of motivation. Much of this blog written by Seth Godin, addresses the issue of motivation and most specifically the times in our life where an external force is the difference maker in our actions, rather than ou ...

Many of us get into our routines in our daily lives so much so that we forget what truly makes us happy. I have had made it a priority this past year to use the gifts that I have been given and really do what makes me happy! I bet if you take a poll and ask people what their perfect day consists of, or what truly makes them ...

How many times have you wanted something (and wanted it bad!), but weren’t quite able to convert your wishes to reality? Literally, we have all done it, from Michael Jordan to the kid down the street who still doesn’t have that bike he’s got his eye on.  Our eyes get big for something, and them at some point life get ...
