A lot of people don’t find success counting calories because they’re not sure exactly how much of each food they’re consuming. If you’re off the mark by, say… 25%, that can add up to 500 calories a day, which adds up to 1 lb difference a week!
Here’s the thing about calorie counting: it’s really freakin’ easy to count if you cook for yourself. It’s so easy, even the Geico cavemen could do it.
When I was little, my mom used to buy a sh*t ton of almonds. She bought them religiously. Every week of grocery shopping, she would buy about a pound of almonds and it would be finished within a matter of days.
There’s a phenomenon going on in the developing world today. Hundreds of millions of people are able to keep in contact and watch the activities of other people, every day, every hour, every minute, behind the convenience of a digital screen within their own home.
People can watch what the top bodybuilders, models, and athletes are doing, eating, and performing. People can get an insight on the habits that make them successful. People can stop, fast forward, and rewind their words to dissect every bit of information they say.
You might have heard of this phenomenon – it’s called social media.
Well, first things first. It’s been a while (4 months?) since I last posted – so to all my loyal readers (all… 3 of you), I apologize. Reasons I stopped posting:
Personal life got in the way – certain people / things demanded more of my time,
I hit a weight loss plateau (still hovering around 170 lbs) so I don’t feel like I’m practicing what I preach, and…
I got lazy.
None of those matter, though, because I have time now, and I have thoughts now, and I’ll be damned if I don’t combine my crazy weird thoughts with that time to produce some unique fitness-related content.
So without further ado, back to our regularly scheduled programming…
Whenever I watch any sports game on TV, I’ve noticed something. Usually, the commentators are a mix of well-known sports analysts, ex-coaches, and ex-players. And something that always seems to be common is that the old ex-players are significantly more… uhh… round.
Hey guys. I know I haven’t been posting in a while (busy with life stuff and STILL at a plateau), but here’s round 2 of GYSB.
Basically, each post of Groceries You Should Buy (GYSB) is going to highlight a few foods/products you can find at your supermarket that are exceptionally healthy or just really amazing for dieting. If you know of any yourself, feel free to share in the comments!
You might think motivation is a good thing. You might think motivation is something you need, something that will finally get you to reach your goals. Something that is key to being a great, successful person. Well… it’s not.
