Daily Thought
Commitment to Personal Growth
I started writing the Daily Thought as a journal to help me read more, write more, and begin to internalize the lessons about leadership I was reading about. After reading “The Power of Full Engagement” by Dr. Jim Loehr I realized it needed to be a daily ritual of commitment to personal growth. To be more connected to my clients and their goals to be healthier and perform at their best, I decided to share it with all my clients starting in 2008. The leaders of our generation Dr. Stephen Covey, Jim Rohn, John Maxwell, and others have shared their wisdom in their writings, and I am committed to sharing the lessons of the great leaders, and my own knowledge of 20 years as a professional trainer and coach. In 2009 I decided the conversation about living healthy needed to be much bigger, I needed to play much bigger. I have written almost every business day since that day 9 years ago. Please feel free to share this blog with anyone you think might benefit from this conversation. My passion is to be an advocate for better health so I remain committed to maintaining this conversation as long as I am able. Thank you to the many friends and clients who have shared they have enjoyed these posts and our ongoing conversation about living well. 
“The bigger the storm, the more inclined we are to revert to our survival habits, and the more important positive rituals become.” Dr Jim Loehr

Nutrition Tip: Creating Weight Loss in Your Diet
There is one crucial element that will determine whether you lose weight as you structure your diet. It’s called energy balance and it is the basic balance of calories consumed versus calories burned through daily activity and exercise. A calorie deficit of 200-400 calories per day is required if you are going to lose one pound per week as is recommended as a safe weight loss goal. Many times the difference can be one food choice each day. Eat a great breakfast, moderate lunch, and a light dinner each day to set up consistent weight loss. If you wake up hungry in the morning you are on your way to weight loss, if not it means you are eating too much after 6 PM at night.
