It’s the Economy Stupid…No F#@kin’ Kidding!

By on November 7, 2008

I’m not big on bringing politics into fitness but this financial calamity is still trying to find its bottom and hope is really all we have at this moment. Really, what is hope without action…it was a rhetorical question but I’ll answer it anyway.

WORDS, that’s all it is only words. I hope we get out of this mess…what are YOU doing about it? I hope the President has a plan…really? Why? Create your own destiny.

It’s the same way with your fitness. Hope and words won’t ever take the fat your carrying around and make it magically disappear. Although the Secret was a number one best seller I still think it was one of the biggest scams ever propagated on a “hopeful” public. I have listened to people say if I just “think” hard enough I can will myself to lose this weight.

Bullshit! and Bullshit again if you didn’t read it the first time. Thinking that you will some how develop willpower that you haven’t been able to muster in the past ten or so years and magically lose 10, 20 or 30 lbs is absolutely insane.

This “false” hope just like most of the “bailout” money that’s going to bonuses and purchases of new banks, is what you’re creating with this new will. Hope in not the answer…action is. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute and step by step.

An action based on consistency and dedicating at least 15 – 20 minutes a day is what will get you to your weight loss goals but action without a plan can be dangerous, exactly as the “bailout” of the banks was. Again, false hopes…basing your weight loss goals on a “Lose Weight Quick Scheme” of diet pills, diets and products that make you sh@t oil are not going to get you to your goals.

Get a program from a qualified fitness professional and be consistent with your meal plans and weight loss exercise program. If you need a place to start and want a guarantee then go to: and get started on creating a better quality of life.
