What is your 2010 fitness goal??

Saturday, January 09, 2010

I copied this from my good buddy Tony Horton, creator of P90X. He hits it right on the nail with this one. What is your 2010 goal...write it down!!!

Here it is... 2010. Now what? New year, new decade and new opportunities.
Everyone knows by now that the start of a new year creates the desire to be a better person. Smoking, drinking, bad eating habits, procrastinating, better work habits, spend less, save more, get fit, lose weight, and so it goes. Enthusiasm that will last well into April. Turns out that long term change is really hard and falling into old habits can happen with very little pressure from the outside world.

Turns out that success comes to those with good mentors, a rock solid plan that fits your lifestyle, a means to stay accountable, and surrounding yourself with like-minded people. Many many folks with the best of intentions have been winging it year after year with little or no change. I meet far too many people who have fallen off the wagon. They were on the program but something happened and before you know it 3 or 4 weeks went by and 10 to 15 pounds come back and they're right back where they were. Sound familiar?

1. Follow the person and/or program that makes sense to you.
2. Write down a plan that forces you to stick with your goals for the next 12 months.
3. Finds 3 ways to stay accountable even under the most adverse conditions
4. Run from lazy naysayers and find people who want more out of life.

Do It ~ Bring It!

It's You...written by Tony Horton

Friday, October 23, 2009

I was at Tony Horton's house this past Monday and Tuesday and he is just such an inspiration. I love him dearly and everytime I am around him and learn something. I am always amazed at his fitness level. At the age of 51 he can do more pull ups and push ups than the average 22 year old. He looks amazing and he is always so positive. I wanted to share this article he wrote with you guys. It is spot on to how we should think. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

It's You!
It's not your mother or your father. Not your sister or your brother. It's not your God or your Government. It's not the high school bully or your eighth grade home room teacher. It's not your therapist or your wife or your boyfriend. It's not luck or even circumstance. It's not your height, weight or age that makes life great, or not. It's You! It's you that makes you happy or sad. It's you that makes you smart or stupid. It's you that eats right or not. It's you that chooses to exercise or to sit on your ass. It's you who puts the cigarette in your mouth. It's you that yells at your 3 year old daughter. It's you that doesn't have patience when you need it. Your parents created you, but it's you that decides to make something of yourself. Point the finger in the mirror because that image before you is the only creature on earth that can guarantee happiness, fitness, health, love, joy, purpose and a state of well being. Hoping and wishing that everyone and everything else is going to bring you a better life is a farce and a fantasy.

When you learn how to rely on yourself, you discover that it's not really about you anyway. When you finally stop relying on others for your happiness and blaming them when it doesn't happen you'll see life for what it really is. A community where we help each other. The transition from "me and my problems" to "how can I help." is easier for some than others, but it needs to happen if you want a full and happy life. You have to get your act together because important people in your life need you. They need you to be thoughtful and trustworthy. They want you to listen and NOT give advice unless they ask. They hope you'll be patient, caring and understanding. If you pull this off you'll also learn than perfect strangers are willing to listen to you, because you'll have something they want. You'll have the formula for a good life. A happy life. A healthy life. You will no longer need to rely on others for your happiness because your happiness will come from helping others. Tony

If you have passion for fitness and would love to help others and receive a check from it, then take a look at this a message from Tony's boss. These two men have helped me change my life. I now want to pay it forward and help others do what I have done.

    I have both the old P90 program and Slim in Six. I have not ever worked out to SIS, I got it and honestly, it just sits in the case. I use the excuse that I have sciatica, but eventually I will get it in the DVD player.

I've done P90 a few times and have to modify it due to some physical handicaps I have, but it's a good program. I just ordered the Insanity workout and waiting for it to arrive in my mail. I know it's a super-tough workout and I'll be going slowly and probably modifying some moves for the whole 60 days, but I don't care. I will be sending in my photos to get MY shirt! NO one in my family knows I am even trying to lose weight. I find if I tell anyone, I get a lot of skepticism, so this time, my weight loss is a secret, except for Sparkpeople.

I've liked Tony Horton since I first put the P90 DVD in my DVD player. He tells it like it is and that is refreshing to me. Good article, I think I will save it.
