We all get this one opportunity to live our very best life.
When we don’t grow, love, take care of ourselves and live to our potential, we are squandering this one amazing opportunity we’ve been granted.
Comfort, fear, and scarcity rob us of what’s possible unless we consciously choose otherwise.
I bring this to you today because what humans on their deathbed know is that REGRET is the most damaging thing.
So, look at your life today. If you had only moments left to live, is there anything you’d regret?
Did you have true fulfillment in your life?
If the answer would be no, it’s time to change.
If that “no” has anything to do with your health and body, I’d love to know more.
Let me know what is coming up for you either way!

What I’m about to share with you are two very harmless words except when they’re used together.
These words are…
Let me explain with an example.
Person #1: “You know there’s never a perfect time to start exercising.”
Person #2: “Yeah, but things are just extra crazy right now with the holidays coming.”
You see, the phrase “yeah, but” does two things.
- It acknowledges the situation, challenge, etc.
- It refutes your ability to do anything about it.
And the truth is that there’s never a “but” when something is important enough or a high enough priority to us.
For example, if someone is diagnosed with cancer, their response wouldn’t be “yeah, but I just don’t have time to deal with this right now.”
The reason I decided to share this message today is to simply bring this phrase to your attention. My hope is that the next time you hear “yeah, but” either from yourself or from someone else, that you catch yourself, evaluate the scenario, and move toward “yeah” without the “but.”

Most of you know that I’m in Italy for the week with my StrongFirst family and then a nice little vacation. Again, I don’t plan on depriving myself while on vacation but I do plan on following these rules while I’m here (the same rules I follow at home!)
So, without further ado, here are my 7 rules for healthy eating:
1. Drink water! Half of your body weight in ounces per day is your absolute minimum! I also suggest drinking a full glass of water prior to each meal to prevent over-eating in addition to drinking a glass as soon as you wake up.
2. Focus on eating mostly proteins, vegetables, good fats, some fruit, and good-quality starches (like potatoes of any kind). Keep sugar to a minimum!
3. Never eat in a hurry. Do your best to always eat slowly and in a relaxed state.
4. Never eat until you’re stuffed – stopping when you feel 80% full is key!
5. Choose high-quality organic foods anytime possible.
6. Eat only when you’re actually physically hungry, not because it’s “meal time.”
7. Supplement your diet with high-quality products.
There you have it!
Which of these do you do well?
Where is there room for improvement?
