How Well do You Know Your Calorie Intake?

Creating a tax on sugary drinks in an effort to fight obesity received mixed views, but ultimately didn't pass in New York this week. 

Those for the tax were supporting a healthier America.  No matter what you think of the tax you cannot fault wanting to fight obesity and disease. 

Those who opposed the tax said that you cannot pin down calorie intake to beverages.  That is tough to argue as well.

How well do you know your nutrition facts?  Take this quick and fun quiz to find out.

Overcoming Excuses: I'm Too Tired To...

Thursday night I was driving home from work (with a live (?) hamster lost somewhere in my car - ah! parenthood) making up every excuse why I wouldn't get in my Insanity workout.  It's dark.  I'm tired.  I hear the second phase of Insanity is really really hard.  I'll do a double tomorrow. (yeah right)

I looked at the clock in my car and BAM! I had a total paradigm shift.

Five For Success

One of my favorite business and personal development authors is John Maxwell.  In his most recent book he put together what he calls a compilation of his life's work, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.  The CEO of my company is rather obsessed with names and numbers and numbers and names.  The title of this book is right in his wheelhouse.  15, that is specific and measurable.  Invaluable, now that is very descriptive.

Invaluable; having great value that is impossible to calculate. 

Just by definition who wouldn't want 15 principles of such great value that it is impossible to calculate?

Overcoming Excuses: I Don't Have Time To ...

This is what I hear all of the time "How do you do it?  I just don't have the time to workout like you do."  Like I do? Time?  Are you kidding me?

I wish I had a magic wand that would allow me to create an extra hour or two whenever I need them.   I need an extra hour to workout - wave my magic wand - ta da.  I need an extra hour to read a personal development book
