If you don't reach your goal, you dont want it bad enough.
I hope your 2015 is off to a great start! Please take the time to make goals for the year. Goals are important for a number of reasons, mainly, that’s really the only way to get where you want to get. Oh I guess you could float through life and truly accidentally walk up on a bundle of money to retire on or stumble into a CEO position just waitin for ya to show up or maybe you’ll just bump into that number 1 position on your clubs tennis team … get my drift??
Make a "time" budget for 2015
Well, I can hardly believe that it’s Christmas ALREADY!!! Holy smokes!!! I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2015! Stay close to family, say your prayers, count your blessings, get to know YOU and like YOU and pay “it” forward – whatever “it” is. Blessings come to those that bless others. My thoughts for the season, just wanted to share.
The decrease in your life
I hope this finds you all well and healthy & getting ready for the holidays!
We have a lot going on here at UDT. Take a look at our calendar and you'll see 4 hour & 8 classes through June. Plus we'll aways come to you if you want to host a class. More are coming so stay tuned.
This weeks quote from Bruce Lee; "Its not about the daily increase, but the decrease. Hack away at the unessential" is about EVERYTHING in your life. We all have extra crap we think about, we hang onto - physically and mentally, we carry around ... the list goes on.
Do not underestimate the benefits of walking
I hope this finds you well and healthy … and getting ready for Thanksgiving!!! Holy smokes … it’s ALREADY Thanksgiving. I still feel as though we JUST got here to Boerne – well, we kinda actually did, but still, that’s beside the point.
Our headquarters is all set up and ready for training. We even have a few classes on the calendar until the end of the year. We're loading up next year's classes now, so be on the lookout for one that interests you.
Ok, onto this week’s blog. I talk about “walking” a lot and the science is clear – walking is a great exercise. You don’t have to be a marathoner to get great cardio benefits from body movement. Granted, jogging – running will burn calories quicker, but if it’s just not your thing, no worries. You can still get a solid calorie burn walking – just gotta do it right and with purpose. Here are a few tips from the “walkers” of the world that they swear by.
Thank a Veteran today
I hope this finds you well and healthy.
Nothing fancy, no long and drawn out thoughts, nothing but sincere THANKS to all of our veterans - past & present. To our future veterans, thank you for taking your courageous step in serving the country.
Please take time in your day today to thank a veteran for their service.
Portion Control is key to proper eating
I sincerely hope this finds you well and healthy … and enjoying this cool & gorgeous weekend!!! I saw on the news where Dallas is getting a blast of cold!! You lucky dogs!! It’s still gorgeous here, but y’all know how much I like “cold” weather. I’ll suck it up and get through a beautiful and “mild-ish” fall/winter here in the Hill Country … hehe.
Ok then, this week – still on the eating thing … let’s chat about portion sizes! Here in America, with all the first rate technology in medicine and fitness, why are we some of the fattest and most out of shape people on the planet? It’s called … “portion control” or better yet … the lack of portion control that’s a great cause of our nation’s obesity issues. Yes I know, there are people out there with real metabolic issues that have a REAL medical problem, but the rest of the country … is just eating too damn much and moving too damn little!! We are the only creatures on the planet that eats more than we should and devises ways to move as little as possible … and we’re the “smart” ones!!!!!
Taking a calculated risk
I do hope this finds you well and healthy!
Well, we - UDT - moved our headquarters out of Dallas & into the gorgeous hill country of Texas. Just this past Monday I got a stable internet connection - sorry for the delay in updating the site, but now we're full on!!
I'm getting settled in and in a routine. It was a risk to pick up and leave Dallas after 29 years - holy smokes ... 29 freakin years! But just like the title of this blog and the quote of the week; it was a calculated risk and we believe one well worth it. Since UDT started training back in 2009, we have had ONE job in East Texas and ONE in Witchita Falls ... everything else has been from Waco to McAllen, so calculating that single variable we moved where the work is ... the hill country.
