Just Live...Healthier

I read a lot of good stuff out there. I don't always comment as there are just so many hours in a day and just not enough days of the week.  Much as I would love to add an 8th blogging day in the week, it just isn't going to happen. 

I also often have trouble thinking of inspirational things to say.  Sometimes I'll be in an odd place like the shower or driving and I'll think of something that would be good to put on the blog, but then it just goes away and when I get to the computer, I either can't think of it or don't feel like tweaking those last few brain cells to remember how I wanted to word it. 

So when I read something that is well written and says exactly what I want to say, I want to share it.  This is the second time I've quoted this blog in like a week.  She writes very well and she's very direct. I like direct. I like bluntness. It works.  While she is blunt, she isn't rude so it works well for me.  Anyways, here are:

5 Reasons Why You Won't Lose Weight

I loved this article.  I especially loved the last part.  She wrote,

So really, prove me wrong – stop buying every silly product that comes out. Stop putting off workouts. Stop with the impatience (and, consequently, undue stress and pressure that comes with it.) Stop with the freaking diets. Just live… healthier. It’s that easy.
So true, so true.

  1. I get great ideas in the shower too! And driving. I have a note pad in the car and when I get to a stop light I try to write down the greatness that was in my head. Usually I have forgotten much of it. Sigh.

  2. That little paragraphs speaks volumes! Love it! Thanks for sharing. I have been out of the good ol' blogosphere this week and actually missed it. Back now and trying to catch up on a few. I didn't log on my fitness pal and got check ups from people - this support is awesome!

  3. Thanks for posting the was a fabulous piece!!!

  4. That was really a great recommendation. Thanks for sharing this article.

    Yep, there are only so many hours in a day...
