For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin, real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life - Alfred D. Souza

HOW many glasses of water a day do you drink? I am a terrible water drinker and would like to change that! Who wants to join the challenge? This week we will start by waking up and drinking 8 oz of water. Can you do that?

IntervalAlternating between high-and low-intensity efforts for brief bouts of time is the fastest way to maximize fat loss, says Powell. Warm up for 10 minutes, then follow one of the interval patterns below; repeat for up to 20 minutes.
• Thrilling Thirties: Alternate 30 seconds of high and low intensity• Nasty Nineties: Alternate 90 seconds of high and low intensity• Dirty Two-Thirties: Alternate 2.5 minutes of high and low intensity
Distance"Maintaining a conversational pace for a long period of time is great for overall calorie burn," says Powell. "The key is increasing duration gradually as your body adapts." Pick any cardio activity and work at a challenging yet sustainable pace for 30 to 60 minutes. Every two weeks, aim to tack on five more minutes.
TempoThis workout is the love child of intervals and distance. Push harder than you do for long-distance workouts, for a shorter period of time—and aim to keep your effort level steady. Warm up for 10 minutes, then do two or three 10-minute tempo intervals. Rest five minutes after each one so you can fully recover.
RecoveryIf you’re sore or tired, opt for 30 to 45 minutes of a low-intensity activity (like casually riding your bike). Moving at an easy pace still boosts circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system, helping your muscles recover.

There will never be a time in your life where it is the ‘right time’ to do great things. If you wait for the perfect moment or the right time, it will not occur. You have to create it by yourself, the opportunity and the situation.

Energy Density means calories divided by grams/weight. The low energy density foods are also high nutrient dense foods.

This is so important to remember, especially when people say you can’t be healthy and lose weight without being hungry all the time.

This is so good
