What are you waiting for?

I was doing some work the other day and I thought a vacation sounded great! Then I started thinking of all the reasons I shouldn't or couldn't take a vacation right now. Then I thought there never will be a perfect time...so what am I waiting for?

So this is the question I ask you today...
What are you waiting for?

Many times in life we are waiting for that perfect moment to get started. To really start living, to really do what we know we should be doing. Whether it's working on a healthier lifestyle through exercise, more sleep, putting the right fuel into your body, starting that new project, ending that old relationship, mending a broken relationship, spending some quiet time reflecting, taking that trip you have wanted to take. Making time for you, spending more quality time with the kids, or family, the list goes on and on of the things we want to do. So why don't we do them?

We all have the tendency to wait... wait until we finish school, we get married, wait until we have more time, or have a kid ,or when we make more money, or get a better job, or a better car. Waiting for more courage, more energy, more information, or simply waiting on others to get themselves together.I think we mostly wait because we fear the unknown, the outcome that we can't predict.

So what are you waiting for? Tomorrow isn't promised. And although it has been said a thousand times before, it hit very close to home a little more than 2 months ago when a very good friend of mind passed away in a car accident, while heading out on a family vacation, leaving behind 4 kids under the age of 11. I often wonder did she wish she had took that extra day off with the kids, played more? laughed more? loved more? She was an Awesome person and lived life to its fullest, and I am glad that I was blessed to have her as a friend and I know she is in a far better place right now.

At the end of the day right now is all we have, this moment. So do the things you know you should be doing, because it will make your life better as well as those around you. Dont wait for others to decide your life for you.You are the only person responsible for your life.responsibility Pictures, Images and Photos

Life is precious so love more, appreciate more, forgive more and treat your body right ...you deserve it. The time is Now!!

100 Senior Citizens in Nursing Homes were polled about what they would do differently if they could do it all over again:

1.Laugh More

2.Spend more time with love ones. 

3. Take More Risk

The time is always now... dont live with regrets. Doing something and failing is much better than never trying.

So if you have been thinking about having a healthier lifestyle and looking and feeling great... and having some fun while doing so, come in for a free week tryout with LB Fit Camp...and start living today with no regrets.

Dedicated to your health and fitness success,

Here is the million dollar tip, that is so easy you will be tempted not to do it, but trust me you are going to want to do this...consistently.

If you start off your day with a high quality protein  you will burn 65% more calories throughout the day then if you dont eat breakfast, or eat a high carbohydrate breakfast.

Wow!! Now I think this is one thing you can start doing ASAP, that won't take much effort. Now portion size is alwasy always important, dont over do.

Of course I couldnt leave you without some high quality proteins and some not so high quality proteins choices:

(Select Most Often )   
  • Beans
  • Chicken breast (without skin)
  • Crab
  • Egg whites
  • Flounder
  • Halibut

  • Salmon (canned or fresh)
  • Snapper (red or blue)
  • Soy milk
  • Tilapia
  • Tofu
  • Tuna (steaks or canned, in water)
  • Turkey breast (without skin)
Select Moderately

  •  Lean cuts of beef/pork
  • Low-fat luncheon meats (e.g., turkey)
  • Mixed nuts

  • Shrimp
  • Texturized vegetable protein
  • Turkey bacon
  • Whole eggs
Select Least often

Note: while fairly comprehensive, this is not a complete list of all food choices

 There you have it you should print this out and put it up in your kitchen somewhere visable.

 Remember it only works if you do... so put it into action!
