One thing I have learned is that the body follows the mind. If you take your mind into deep dark alleys of negativity, you will find that your body succumbs to the traps of food marketing easier. You will find that your willpower is depleted, exercise happens less often, and over-eating happens quite frequently. Ultimately, […]
Keep Going. Don’t stop! Create Inertia! Let’s talk how I have lost weight in the past multiple times. I did it by creating inertia. I used the power of habits, and I realized that exercise is a keystone habit. Naw, I stumbled on it. I didn’t know exercise was the keystone of anything much less […]

Einstein explained this by saying its all relative. Here’s a quick example: If I’m in a car going 100 km per hour, from my front seat, the water […]
Return to Roots

Work, Life it happens. Time does not stop (at least that I know of). So, action must happen as well. I have been working out inconsistently. I have been eating too much food. I have been eating the wrong kinds of food. What happens with this type of action? Weight Increases. Endurance and Stamina decreases. […]
