You can use desire to attain your goals

Desire.

Desire brings us closer to others we are interested in.

It directs our thoughts daily towards what we want. It’s the foundation for the goals we set and thus the parameters of our lives.

Setting your goals out long term is good, but if you lack the intentions in the present moment that support them you won’t be nearly as successful in reaching them.

There's great power in being consistent

Holding ourselves accountable is one of the more difficult things that can be asked of us. 

"A consistent formula gives consistent results."   -Abraham Hicks. Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires. 

This really struck a cord with me today when thinking about some of my training client's progress. 

Ayn Rand follows an even harder line here with:

Hello from the…inside

Not everyone has a platform to share something so powerful and transformative so please know: YOU CAN DO THIS TOO, IT WILL HELP, TAKE THE LEAP!

My role as the fitness writer for SDGLN generally has me working to inspire or educate others on physical pursuits that may better their lives in some way.

Aesthetics and health don’t always go together so I try to keep those standards at the forefront.  For example, achieving visible abs by shaming yourself into starvation is no bueno.

Fitness works if you just stick to your best 'thing'

SDGLN's own Grant Foreman talks fitness and diet.

Taking breaks and enjoying the holidays is part of life and should be celebrated.

If you know what's good for you you'll start working now to keep those extra lb's from sticking around!

Time is of the essence here. 

January is busy for us personal trainers usually, and these past couple weeks have lived up to that.

Grant's post-holiday fitness advice

San Diego's fitness guru has some advice for your post-holiday resolutions.

Well, did you make it through the endless chances for holiday fun alive? 

I know I've been anxious to get my training clients back to regular schedules and my own liver back to normal too.  

It can be a challenge to break free from the new normal we've set of sweet snacks and frequent drinking. 

But there is a way! 

3 things you're NOT doing to keep fit

These 3 things will help you keep fit and shed some pounds.

Sometimes it’s the little things that can really make all the difference.

Maybe it’s an organic juice you bought thinking it was healthy, and then you looked and it has more sugar than a can of coke. (But it’s “the good kind” you say… Let’s not push it.)

Or your coworker brought in donuts; YAY!

Enabling lessons from 'My 600-lb Life'

Grant Foreman is a fitness and health expert practicing in San Diego.

My 600-lb Life got me and one of my clients thinking this week (If you’re unaware, it’s a television show featuring people who weigh around 600-lbs and what’s life like for them…yup).

To be this large they need help: to be fed by someone else because they can’t get up, go shopping, wash, or use the restroom on their own.

Let that all sink in a moment.

Eat, drink and be mindful this holiday season

Grant Foreman

Happy belated Thanksgiving my fitness-fans.

We have so much to be grateful for and to appreciate; one of my favorites being FOOD! 

This is your trainer telling you to belly up and enjoy the season.

That means stuffing, pie, all the goodies. 

Planes, trains and automobiles: eating healthy on-the-go

Grant Foreman

Here's what to pick, and what to ditch, when eating while traveling. 

San Diego is packed with healthy options for eating; from well equipped grocery stores, restaurants and even 7-11 with its Perfect Food bars or prosciutto wrapped mozzarella sticks. 

But how can you keep this up with the traveling you have planned during the holiday season?

A 'fast' reset button for the holidays

Grant Foreman

This is the season for excess with all the fun get-togethers and meal plans. 

Lots of sugar, lots booze, but also, lots of strategies you can use to recover from these holiday pitfalls. 

Cleansing is a way to strip away some of what you've built up.

It's like hitting the reset button.

Some advocate complete fasting with nothing but water.
