Don't let the "Holiday Effect" get the best of you

By Adam |

“Why bother eating well today, tomorrow, and Wednesday if I’m going to indulge on Thursday?” some of us think. Thanksgiving is on THURSDAY. It’s not today. It’s not tomorrow. It’s not on Wednesday.

I can't stand emails that start like this

Just writing these makes me annoyed. They start something like this: “Only looking for people who are 100% committed!” “Only want people who are serious about achieving results!” “Wanted: Highly dedicated and committed people who want their dream body!” Have you ever gotten one of these ridiculous emails?
