No More Mondays…Stop Delaying, Start Doing

The excuse of delay is like a sour lemon.  It looks pretty and tasty, but the taste of delay is sour.  How many times have you found yourself deep in the excuse of delay?  Delay sounds like…”I’ll start Monday.”  “When I’m not so busy, I’ll have time to cook healthy and workout.”  “I’ll really make a change once the kids get bigger.”  “After the holidays, I’ll focus on improving my eating habits.”

Waiting for the “perfect” opportunity = DELAY.  What if you stopped delaying and started taking action?  We have a few strategies to help you change your mindset from delaying to doing.

What happened when we went Keto for six weeks?

So, if you are at all involved in the health and wellness scene, you have heard the keto buzz lately.  It’s been all the rage, especially for people looking for “quick” weight loss.  I even overhead a family beside us at lunch today that didn’t seem to have much knowledge about keto discuss going “key-toe.”  Despite the hype currently surrounding it, keto has been around since the hunter gatherer age.  It’s not new or really even very complicated.  In fact, if you would have been walking around hundreds and hundreds of years ago, you would have likely been living in a ketogenic state.

As with any other style or method of eating, keto must be approached with the right mindset.  At Fixed on Fitness, we don’t believe in “quick fixes” or “fad diets.”  We don’t promote specific, strict meal plans.  For the last 10+ years, Josh and I have used ourselves as an experiment.  We want to look at the latest research, try it on ourselves, and then share our experience.  We have been living a Primal lifestyle, eating real, nutrient dense foods, and living without grains and processed foods for the last eight years.  Six weeks ago, we decided to give the ketogenic style of eating a try.  Check out our experience, what we learned, benefits we noticed, some tips we discovered along the way, and what are plans are going forward.

Field Day for Grown ups…aka 2018 FOF Survivor

Do you remember field day?  It was almost always my favorite day of school.  Races, obstacle courses, challenges, team work, and fun meant for an awesome day.  Well…it’s been about 25 years since I have competed in a three legged race.  Last Saturday, a group of nearly 30 people from the FOF Pace camp got together to compete in our third annual FOF Pace Survivor event.  It was full of laughs, competition, and tons of fun.  We had three teams, and we all set out to win this year’s medal.  Hey…we might be slightly competitive, but we sure are a lot of fun.
