I’m writing this post to help you. If you made the decision at the start of the year to get in better shape, to lose your flab, to build some muscle, etc…, then this post is for you.
Last year was my year. In 9 months I lost an estimated 15 lbs of fat, and gained around 10-12 lbs of muscle. I am now about to buy new belts and new pants because the ones I have are really loose. It may not seem much to some, but for me it’s a big achievement. I took control of my body, changed my lifestyle, turned it all around.
Please don’t get me wrong. I don’t mean to brag or anything. I don’t think I did anything superhuman. But it was a lot of hard work. Now I can confidently say that I can carry my wife and 2 daughters out a burning building.
I just want to share my experience to help anyone else who wants to have the same confidence. Here’s exactly what I did.
Do you often feel lazy and sluggish, while other people seem to have so much energy? As a follow-up to my previous post, I’d like to share a podcast by Michael Hyatt about how to boost your energy level. It’s a great listen, as he discusses not just your physical energy, but also your mental and emotional energy to run after your goals, as well as to be excellent in the day-to-day issues of life.
I love reading his posts and listening to his podcast. He’s also one of the big factors why I finally stopped procrastinating about starting a blog. I find his posts very enriching. I hope you do too. 🙂

I think health and fitness is a good topic for a second post. Often times, when life gets busy say with work, marriage, children, financial concerns, or other things, our body care is the first to suffer. it’s pretty ironic because if our body doesn’t function well, we won’t be able to do any of the other things we feel are so important.
