With the past holiday week many people overindulged on eating and treats and now are feeling both the mental and physical "fallout."

Most people would say INTEGRITY is important and that it is something we all strive to practice. However it is people's lack of INTEGRITY that is the reason they never see results from their fitness program. Stay with me on this before getting offended. What is the definition of INTEGRITY?

Do you ever have pity parties? I know I do sometimes. I get whiny, kind of like those commercials for Snicker bars. Really most of my problems are "first world" and pale in comparison to what other people are dealing with. When I get like this, I recall one of the best moments in my [...]

One of my favorite passages in the Bible is Luke 12:25 where Jesus says "Who by worrying can add a single thing to your life?" This past week I have dealt with some of my own worrying and have seen it in many of the people in my life. When I read this passage it [...]
