Like a starved dog's logic about bones; HUNGER

I need meat-I go to the grocery and buy it clean, packaged and ready. I need a new shirt quick for the event I forgot about-I go to Top Man at the the mall and grab one. I want a date-I go on Tindr. I want a screw-I go on Scruff (not really but I know people).

It's easy to expect prompt results in a society of such convenience.

But there's a paradigm shift that needs to happen in how many of us think of our bodies and our long term health.

Porking out without filling out

With the weather finally showing some signs that it’s fall--it may not be the Global Warming End of Days after all--I immediately start thinking of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I love eating more than is probably normal and this time of year suits me well with all the social gatherings based around food.

So how do we have a normal life during the holidays and still not loose track of our health and fitness goals?

Our bodies convert extra calories into fat very easily.

None of us are getting out of here alive.

None of us are getting out of here alive.

If this game ends the same for us all, then what we do with our time is monumentally important. But by whose standards are we measuring our efforts?

I don't own a home. I'm not married. I quit college after five years of changing majors and acquiring debt. Oh, and I'm gay. This is a failure to what I grew up learning was my goal.

Walking is not the exercise you think it is

As a personal trainer, it seems as though people feel the need to treat me like a priest in a confessional; following up their crappy health confession with a qualifying statement like, “But I did go on a walk yesterday at least.”

We are a creative and resourceful species (…uh most of us) that can come up with some great excuses to get out of uncomfortable situations like working out, paying bills, using protection.

You might not like this, but walking isn’t really a workout.
