Fitolution – Why you don’t need a coach . . . part #1 exercise

We are 10 days into the New Year, 2019 . . . what’s on everyone’s mind? 
 
Parties, drinking, eating, and staying up to all hours with family, friends and loved ones is over.  Or is it?
 
Yeah!  Get together those goals.  Get rid of all the bad food & drinks (by consumption of course).
 
 
Does this make sense?
 
Look at family, friends and/or acquaintances that have changed their lives.  Dramatic weight loss, muscle gain, or any other impressive transformation can seem like magic.
 
But there’s a science to it.
 
 
Today we’ll start with “Exercise”.
 
This was intended to be a serious piece with lots of references and stuff about accountability, the stages of change, and some home truths about why you need a swift kick in the butt. (That’s old school for emotional reinforcement).
 
But, then I thought that stuff has been written about before and the fact is that if you haven’t considered a coach at this point, then you probably won’t get one on the back of reading a bunch of technical jargon. So, here are 3 reasons that you don’t need a coach.
 
 
1. YOU ALREADY KNOW IT ALL.

What’s the point in getting a coach, they’ll only tell you what you already know, right? You have seen all those documentaries on Netflix and you’ve read a bunch of books and some really sciencey sounding stuff by Layne Norton.
 
Or perhaps you follow Alan Aragon, Eric Cressey or that other guy, I think his first name is Ben? That’s great because it’s not like they have utterly conflicting views on everything and there’s zero chance of you getting confused.

Some Times You Have to Laugh at Yourself

Okay so today was a big day.

Started out with a walk to the polls to vote.

Followed by a very interesting conversation with a neighbor re: marketing.

A not-so-quick jaunt to the nail salon to get my glow-in-the-dark fingers painted black.  Why?  Cause they glowed very bright orange and I was afraid to freak someone at UPW out.
