Simple. Direct. And, most importantly, useful. Get up a half-hour earlier. Exercise 20 minutes. Use resistance. Every day. Eat for health.

Please, please write that book!! You are brilliant!
meditation to balance your moods... conquer your emotions first and exercise will become something to do/acomplish and not something to conquer.... no more exercising because I feel or don't feel like doing it, your logical mind already allows/craves for exercise because it innately already knows what it needs to survive and thrive especially as u grow older....
Even as a child when i took ballet lessons I NEVER was that flexible. touch my toes yes, but to go 5 inches beyond no.

For those choosing long term or intermittent fasting, body odor will be a problem. Granny's Natural Deodorant is All Natural and Aluminum Free and it's the only deodorant that stopped my body odor when I fasted.
Too much sweat on upper lip.

So motivational Ogie! I’ve been getting my gold stars for weeks now. Who knew a simple gold star could motivate me to work out every day?!
This guy is epic. It's both entertaining and instructive at the same time.

Why some people find exercise Winning The Mental Battle of Physical 2 days ago   14:07

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.
Why do some people struggle more than others to keep off the pounds? Social psychologist Emily Balcetis shows research that addresses one of the many factors: Vision. In an informative talk, she shows how when it comes to fitness, some people quite literally see the world differently from others — and offers a surprisingly simple solution to overcome these differences.
