I live the Fitness lifestyle year round, 360 days per year, 7 days of every week, and 24 hours of every day. I understand that not everyone does that. But, if there are seasons to regroup and apply great Nutrition and Fitness guidelines, Spring is one of them. People are generally more active at this time of year, getting outside after a long, cold Winter. It’s the perfect time to create an aggressive plan of attack to shed the excess weight and body fat that accumulated over a less than stellar display of discipline throughout the combined cold weather and Holiday celebrations. It’s especially an opportune time after the malaise that was thrown upon society over the last two years. It’s time to restore yourself. It’s time to emerge from the self-imposed rut. Climb out, dust yourself off, and begin. One can reduce approximately twelve pounds of body fat each month, so the potential between May and June is 24 pounds of body fat loss. Now, visualize how good that feels throughout the months when sunshine and warmth grows more abundant by the day. Imagine how great it would feel to have lost 25 pounds of bod fat by the 4th of July. It can be done. It just takes a plan of attack and putting that plan into action. One step at a time, one day at a time, and before you know it, you’re creating an improved lifestyle, making healthier choices for yourself, feeling great, fitting comfortably into clothes, improving breathing and circulation, growing stronger and faster, and feeling incredible energy. It just takes action. If you have the plan, execute it. Take action. You’ll be glad that you did. You’ll see the difference and you’ll feel the difference. Even if your plan of attack is only three to four days per week of exercise, you will see results if your Nutrition and hydration is on point for seven days of the week. Seek to improve every day. Set the guidelines for yourself and have the perfect discipline to stay within those guidelines. Apply the guidelines and take action each day. Shop, cook, and prepare meals in advance. Schedule the time for eating and exercise and rest, and stay on course. It is high time to do it. No more procrastination, no more excuses, no more malaise, no more rut. End it, and begin anew.

P.S. If you are in need of a NEW Nutrition plan of attack, or in need of ACCOUNTABILITY, I’d be happy to help you. Keep in mind that May and June present a very opportune time for achieving a goal of weight loss and body fat loss. How great would it feel to lose 25 pounds of body fat by July 4th?
