Drop and Give me Twenty

11 August 2010

Well my horde of loyal fans, I’m currently sitting in my BeachBody booth at the Clark County Fair, trying to help our countrymen stop sucking at life. Thirty percent of us ( 2/3 adults, 1/5 kids) are obese (thats 25% fat for men, 30% fat for women) and increasing. I want to help people get healthy and most of the people walking by won’t even make eye contact unless they are already in relatively good shape. If they are in shape, they come and talk to me because guess what- the are already using the products I’m showing off. It seems like all the people who need to get in shape are too lazy to even talk to me about fitness.. which I guess is why they are out of shape in the first place.

If you want to continue to read the blog, I require you to do twenty pushups right now. I’m totally serious, i’m going to hijack your webcam and make sure- if you don’t, I’ll ban you FOR LIFE (I can’t do this yet but seriously, do it). If you do, post in the bottom comments and I’ll give you kudos in my next post and on my facebook page (it’s new, check it out! ). I did sixteen wide-set pullups the other day in a booth here at the fair and I’m calling people out to do pushups with me. I’m turning into a fitness freak! I got called hot yesterday for the first time (that I know of) and it felt good. I THOROUGHLY encourage everyone to go out and get a fitness program- I’m doing P90X right now- and get in the best shape of your life

Being healthy, in addition to letting you live to see grandkids, makes you feel GOOD all day even if you don’t do anything else special. I’m looking around at all the people out of shape and overweight, and I feel pretty damn good about how I’ve changed my life and am pursuing a more fit and healthy lifestyle. I’ll have to post about this stuff on here now and then so I dont kill my roommate with pushup competition.

SO back to what I’m doing here. I’ve recently become a distributor for BeachBody(its like a Mary Kay program) so MY job is to help people when they have questions about fitness or nutrition or are having problems with motivation, etc. If you’re already doing a program and need help or you aren’t but you would like to, visit and sign up as a free player (it really IS free, not some sales ploy) and it will put you under me, and I’ll help you with anything you need!

Be all you can be and make sure you do those pushups.

Importance of Appearance

1 December 2009

A first impression is developed within seven seconds of meeting someone new. The first things someone decides about you will affect the way they see and treat you, so make them good. If you want to be treated well, make those seven seconds count. Your appearance reflects your personality, whether you intend it or not. If you dress like you’re a slob, odds are the first thing people will think about you will be something negative. If you dress like a clown people assume you’re funny. Or crazy. However you dress, try to see yourself for the first time. What would you think of yourself?

Appearance can change how you behave, as well. I used to dress in a t-shirt and cutoff pajamas every day, and I felt relaxed, at ease, and lazy all the time. I cut class to hang out with my friends(who, consequently, I don’t see anymore.) and got awful grades because of it. I thought at the time I was just enjoying life, and I could be serious in a few years- I believed all those people who say “These are the best years of your life, you shouldn’t worry about school and work just yet.”

In the last six months, I’ve turned around a hundred and eight degrees. I started working at an Optometrist (eye doctor) and had to dress nice. Once I started to dress up a bit, I found that made me feel really, really good about myself. Now I dress in nice pants and a button-up shirt every day, even when I don’t have to work. It makes me feel empowered, more outgoing, and I like it. I’ve had other friends start to do the same thing and they feel the same way. I encourage you to just try it out- dress up on a saturday and go hand out with your friends. Think about how awesome your life is and smile at everyone. Even if you’re extremely shy, you’ll give off a feeling of self-confidence. And guess what- when you give off that feeling, you start to feel it yourself. Dress like the person you want to be, and you will get there sooner.

The people who tell you that now is the best time of your life are absolutely wrong. There is no way that right now my life is as good as it’s going to get, because I work every day to improve myself and shape my own future. I got a sneak peek and let me tell you, life is only going to get better.
