What Will 2018 Mean For Your Life? (And a Giveaway)

What Are You Doing to Live Awesome Today?

do something awesome todayI’ve got a regular post coming soon, but I’m also kicking off something different this morning. Isn’t that what new beginnings are for?

For 2018, I’ll be adding something new to the daily line-up on Mark’s Daily Apple—a daily takeaway post before the main article each weekday. For those who want a quick tip, simple target, or motivation boost to start your day, this is it.

Sometimes a salient quote, sometimes a fitness strategy, nutrition bite, or personal challenge, each day you’ll find something different—all to help you “Live Awesome” today.

Today’s takeaway is a challenge….

“If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up.” — Booker T. Washington

New Year resolutions are often self-focused. It’s natural, of course. The only person we can or should change is the one in the mirror. But we’re an innately social species that thrives on collaboration as well as altruism—and we find a practical, immediate kickback to those instincts. There’s something remarkably impactful about supporting someone else in his/her goal. What you offer fuels your own endeavor. So, choose one way you’ll encourage or help someone else this year. Support folks in the Mark’s Daily Apple Facebook Group or the Keto Reset Group. Coach someone. Be a gym partner. Send a message to someone you know needs it this morning. Put awesome energy out there, and see it expand in your own life.

There’s more to come this morning (including a giveaway), so stay tuned. In the meantime, I’d love to hear what you’d like to see in the daily takeaway posts. Grok on, everybody.

Back To Life, Back To Reality

As I’ve written about before, I don’t really set serious New Year’s Resolutions. I prefer intentions and making little changes that add up. I also love setting the tone of the year with a Word Of The Year. I’m working on that post today! So, while I don’t set major goals and then feel down if I don’t stick to them, I do love the camaraderie of everyone else getting pumped for change. It’s just easier to be healthy when everyone else is talking about it too. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals is easier this month than in the previous three! Join me in the motivation – ask me how I’m doing and I’ll share the same. All of us should have the goal to FEEL our best, no matter what path we take to get there.

I always feel good after having a smoothie for breakfast. This smoothie bowl was made with tropical fruit, Vega Chai, frozen bananas, and milk. On top I sprinkled granola and a peanut butter drizzle.

You know what else makes me feel great? Grapefruit! (Or really any citrus this time of year.) I think the trick is the combo of vitamin C and hydration! I eat my grapefruits just like my oranges – either sliced or peeled in segments. Little tart never hurt nobody!

Mazey and I say hi from the gym! We’ve both had to do indoor workouts for the past few weeks. It’s just too cold for bike riding or outdoor running. At least all of our friends are there.
