The time has come to grab hold of our destiny and take charge and responsibility of our own lives. Let’s empower ourselves and have our healthiest and most awesome Fall ever!!
Step 1: Attitude
If you haven’t already bought into the idea that your attitude toward life is going to ultimately determine nearly everything that happens in one way or another to you on a daily basis then we need to get you there and fast. Thomas Jefferson put it pretty succinctly
“Nothing can stop someone with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help someone with the wrong mental attitude.”
Have an appreciation and respect for what you want and how much your attitude toward everyday can literally make or break your dreams.
Now we Have to Dig a bit further and have to focus on the attitude we carry throughout the day. We have to learn to only worry about the things we have power over, and let the things that we can not control go in one in and out the other. I know it’s difficult but we are trying to kill it in this life and the next we don’t have time to worry bout things we are bombarded with on a daily basis from the media and the break room. We are setting ourselves up for our fittest fall ever!!! We are going to crush our work, and then we are going to crush our workouts, and then we are going to crush family time, or time with our friends.

1.Create a list of things you are grateful for, and read it twice Daily
2.Create a List based on your worries that you have no control over…and practice actively forgetting about them.
3. Last action step. Choose to be happy!!!
Step #2 Proper Nutrition
Books have indeed been written and are being written on this subject, but for the sake of time let’s go with this. Eat real food that you have to prepare for yourself. It is a good check that if the majority of the food you are eating lasts longer than a week, you need to revamp your diet.
That is about as simple as it gets..and I agree with it wholeheartedly.

1. Clear out your cabinets of anything that doesn’t make the cut based on the lists above
2. Write down everything you eat, for at least 2 weeks, if not 2 months
