Your Future is Fitness

Your "future" is not obstacles. Its not a new car, it's not a new camera or a winning lotto ticket. It's not a new house or a new spouse. It's a path of fitness and Well-Being. Well, how did I get here?

To live a simple life and "get out of your own way" is very difficult. Keeping out of your own way is hard because it's difficult to "do nothing" and preserve pristine "reality," but if you can do it the universe will favor your circumstance. For as what will be, will then BE, uncontaminated, by you or me.
- Chris Carter








 Get to know yourself well but do not attempt to fight Mother Nature. She is out of your league.
(Translation:: In the scope of the universe you’re a little piece of ant poop and can be crushed any second, stay out of trouble.)

The most difficult aspect to any Health or Diet program is simply staying on it.
(Translation:: Any dumb infomercial may indeed be about something good that works, but health is more about how “you” operate than it is about ANY program.)

If you’re not aware of the whole picture, all the programs in the world won‘t save you.
(Translation:: A zero calorie salad can be wrecked with bacon cheese fat greasy dressing.)

Being “aware” is like having a safety belt.
(Translation:: Scrape some of that dressing off the salad.)

To lose control, and KNOW you lost control, is a still a measure of control.
(Translation:: It’s okay to fail, it’s actually profitable if you learn something. Start making profits.)

Fate does control everything, your demise is coming, but for heaven sakes
let’s not get it here ahead of schedule.
(Translation:: There’s a bee hive. There’s a big stick. Don’t poke it.)

Your mind is a sponge for excuses, diversions, and phony justifications.
(Translation:: You’re a sucker, just remember that.)

The key is to separate your Self induced indulgences from the murk of hedonist temptation.
(Translation:: We’re goin’ to hell, but we’re takin’ the way I said we would. Be in charge.)

The tendency is to attempt to manipulate control, rather than investigate the source of instigation.
(Translation:: Coming up with reasons to buy bigger size Jeans tells your ass it’s free to GROW.)

You must embrace and acknowledge all your evil behaviors, give them a space
and make a box to put them in. Feed them. Control them. Watch them. Slowly kill them all.
(Translation:: Pick a fight with Mother Nature, kick ass the best you can,
let her win, live to fight another day.)

Prioritize your resources and concentrate your firepower so you can fight the right fight.
(Translation:: Don’t poke that stick in that beehive, get some TNT and blow it up. Next project. )

It’s too easy to justify in your mind dubious behaviors, don’t give yourself ammunition to fail.
(Translation:: Your speeding toward hell, sign says slow down stay in your lane, don’t smart off to the State Trooper.)
