1/31/17 - [VIDEO] Nutrition Challenge Nuggets

As many members of the extended DEUCE community enter the second week of the Whole Life Challenge, I’d like to reenforce our efforts with a groundswell of support. Of course, continue to utilize the challenge feed for comments of encouragement and connect with classmates but, since this isn’t our first rodeo with the challenge, we have some conceptual coaching that may help, too.

The video above is from a library of Whole Life Challenge coaching insights. There are eight videos, one for each week of the challenge, that can provide a little nugget to help get you through.

I’ve seen the same handful of mistakes show up in this challenge and I think it’d be silly to live in restricted misery for eight weeks and not have something remarkable to show for it. You don’t have to be miserable and, in fact, you sure as hell better have something to show for it at the end of this thing.

Our scale is broken. No, not that thing you stand on that tells you your bodyweight. Those are actually quite accurate. They are, however, generally an awful marker for fitness progress, but that a whole other article all together.What I'm referring to is the general scale we use to evaluate ourselves. It's off. We're di ...

The video above has a voice over of the quote written on the wall in the lobby at the gym. The T.E. Lawrence quote reads:"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act t ...

The people that I see do this just happen to be the most accomplished and happy people I know. Because, who wants to bring value to something they feel is a waste of time? That is a pretty roug ...

We've talked about being on offense or defense before with regards to your time. A small percentage of us are on offense when it comes to our time, meaning we are actively choosing how to spend our time, and may even use scheduling to avoid a reactionary approach to life. Most of us, however, are playing defense with our ti ...
