Saturday is March 1st. It’s time to get in shape for the summer! It’s been a long winter (and it’s not over yet). This brutal winter has kept many of us indoors and stagnant. It has been easier to put our resolutions on hold than to face this cold. Let’s make the goals and decisions necessary to get in shape.
How many people don’t get to enjoy summer activities because they don’t feel comfortable with themselves? How many of you are missing great opportunities to do things with friends and family because of your own restrictions?
Ask yourself, if it was July 1st, and your kids wanted to go to the beach, would you feel good? Luckily for most of us, it’s not July 1st, and we still have four months to get in gear. Lets work to make sure we can’t give ourselves or our friends and family any excuses to not enjoy ourselves.
I’m lucky to be 68 and in shape. The healthier and happier you feel, the more good things happen for you.
When I need to get in shape and jumpstart my routine, I cut out sugar, carbohydrates and gluten. The best way to kick these three things to the curb? Google what each of these do to your body, and hopefully you never look back. Understanding the effects that sugar, carbs, and gluten have on your body will make cutting them out easier and all the more necessary. Feed your body, not your appetite. Eat for health, not for comfort.
Once you’ve successfully gotten your diet on track, exercise is next. It keeps you motivated, especially this time of year. For example, if you get up in the morning and you’re down on yourself, you will only keep going in circles. You have to have a purpose, and that goes for anything in life. I’m going hunting in Colorado in seven months. Every day, I wake up to a picture of the place we’re going to hunt. It becomes my motivation and purpose to eat right, stay in top shape, and prepare for this trip.
If your purpose is to make it to the beach with your kids this summer, put a picture of the beach in plain view of where you lay your head to rest at night and you will wake up to be reminded of your purpose every day. From there, you will make your goals to eat right and get in shape in order to achieve that purpose.
And maybe you’re not worried about the way you look. What you’re really worried about is the way you feel. And you can most certainly change that.
In reality, your purpose could be anything. Maybe you have a project coming up in the next couple months, or maybe you’re building something. Define it. Desire it. It will give you the energy to wake up every day and chase it. You have something to look forward to. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. As long as you keep it in sight and set attainable goals to reach it, you can do anything.

Valentine’s Day is about affection and relationships. It’s like the mark of a new year for your love life and your relationships. This time of year, I vow to reflect on my relationships, stop judging a partner, and try to be more understanding.
Two of the most important things that I see missing from relationships:
The first, and arguably the most important component, is communication. The couples that are happy always have great communication. It helps them to better understand each other and their feelings. It’s never healthy when you’d prefer to have a dialogue with yourself instead of your partner.
The second missing component is hugging, touching, affection. When was the last time you had a good hug and a good laugh with your partner? I’ll bet a big percentage of people, especially those that have been engulfed in a long relationship or marriage, couldn’t answer it. Be proactive in preventing your relationship from turning stale. Be spontaneous, creative, and diversified to keep it fresh. Be honest with yourself, share it with your partner, and change it.
The beauty about being single is having so many options in life. And when we get into a committed relationship or a marriage, life becomes repetitious and you catch yourself just going through the motions. You never allow the relationship to grow.
I see good relationships very few and far between. Whether you’re married or not, I’m asking you this Valentine’s Day to make a Valentine’s Day resolution. Commit to yourself and your partner in pushing your relationship in the direction that you mutually agree you’d like it to go. Laugh and have fun. Show the affection that each of you are craving. Because whatever you’re doing, it ain’t working.
The number one offense in a committed relationship or marriage is not allowing your partner to be who they are; they can’t be their own wolf that I’ve mentioned so many times before. Just because you’re committed, it doesn’t mean you are not your own individual. And this is exactly where communication comes in full force. Express what makes the two of you happy in life, and allow each other to pursue it.
I feel that if two individuals allow one another to pursue their own personal goals, journeys and aspirations, it makes us that much more eager to come home and share our lives with each other. Go on that fishing trip, go on that spa retreat, just have fun. You will establish an open and receptive attitude, which in turn creates harmony in the home. And don’t forget, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Instead of buying the flowers and the chocolate and the jewelry this Valentine’s Day, give your partner the gift of conversation, understanding, spontaneity, creativity, and a new commitment to making your relationship stronger in the coming year.
In closing … stay horny my friends. As always.
