In an effort to have a relevant and informative blog, I have been checking out some of the “top blogs” on my new server to see what other people are reading.  Out of the top 100 blogs I encountered only one blog that had anything to do with health, fitness, diet and exercise.  And it appears to be an extremely popular blog, but not a very positive one. 

To make a long story short, the blog was about how diets and weight loss surgery do not work.  It stated all of the facts that the author gathered, and supported her claims in a very, very, very long winded speech.  Then her readers commented, by the dozens, that nothing out there works and they are in pain, miserable and suffering.  All of them.  I added my comment that while diet alone does not work for everyone, a healthy eating plan and exercise, blah blah,…..you get the point, right?  My normal stuff. Well, let me tell you, I got attacked by these readers.  I got attacked for being positive, spreading healthy messages and hints on how to live a healthier life style.

One of the comments went so far as to say What The F-CK to one of my “craving busters”.  And quite frankly I have to say honestly, if that is your attitude about living a healthy lifestyle then you are going to be fat and miserable forever. And I am NOT sorry for telling them they are going to stay fat, miserable and unhappy. Period.  This blog does nothing but enable the readers to remain stuck in their current pattern of behavior, and then gives them strength in numbers.

But here is the truth: we are in an obesity epidemic.  Meaning, we are so fat it is killing us.  We as a society are so fat it is straining our health care system to the point of collapse.  If you are obese and not taking steps to live a healthier lifestyle everyday, then you are part of the problem.  I AM NOT!  I AM PART OF THE SOLUTION!

So if you want to continue to sit on your big, fat, unhealthy butts and criticise people like me who want nothing more than to empower you then it is your own damn fault. 

Oh, by the way, it is also your fault your family, children and friends are fat.  So sit on your reinforced lazy boy and steam about that one for a while….then go take a good look in the mirror and stop blaming everyone else for YOU!  There is freedom available there, and yes, with freedom comes the responsibility to eat healthy and accept the consequences when YOU do not.  No one is forcing that fried chicken down your throat, only you are.

Have a healthy day.

Get it out ladies, put it all out there on the floor.  Has your boyfriend been caught in a lie?  Has your husband forgotten your wedding anniversary, or bought you a gift that he would like, but you despise?

Well “We’re Not Gonna Take It” we are gonna Kick His ASS! 

Before you get arrested for assault and battery, let’s do it in a productive way…I am gonna grab my boxing gloves and head to the gym. I am gonna put on my gloves and let loose on the punching bag as if it were every past boyfriend or husband who lied, cheated or forgot what an amazing woman I am…..what an amazing woman you are! YEAH!  We are going to take every last ounce of our frustrations out on that punching bag and refuse, REFUSE to allow another person to use us as their personal punching bags!

With every hit and kick landed remember how powerful you are, how amazing you are, remember that if this one couldn’t see it there are four more who will and who are ready to show you how a woman should be treated!

Wow!  Don’t you feel better already?  And you haven’t even gotten to the gym yet.  Well grab your sneakers and go, you will feel better and burn stress and calories at the same time! 

Have a healthy and kick butt day!

PS: No boyfriends or husbands were injured during the creation of this blog….and they should be grateful for kickboxing classes!

Tying into my blog from Wednesday: “Your Big Butt Is Not My Problem” I wanted to share with you an amazing story written by one of my peers in the fitness industry, Dax Moy.  Dax lives and works in England, and I had the pleasure of meeting him last year at a conference on this side of the pond.  Dax is so dedicated to his career he flew to the United States to attend a conference, I knew I was in amazing company when I saw that level of commitment.

 Dax recently published an article he wrote and the timing was incredible.   So before you click on the link ask yourself:

What is holding you back?

Have a healthy day!

It really isn’t my problem, so stop all the whining, blaming, and excuses you continue to dump on me about your dump truck! They will do nothing for you but kept your butt as big as it is!  Seriously!

I am a positive person, really I am.  I am definitely someone who can find the silver lining on a rainy day…sit next to me for a while and you will see for yourself.  Have I always been this way? Hell NO! But at some point in my life I got tired of hearing myself complain about my body and I GOT INTO ACTION!  Why? Because what I wanted in my life was not what I had.  So, I could have continued to do exactly what I was doing, and I would have continued to get exactly what I got.  Or, I could stop convincing myself that I was helpless to change the outcome of my life, and stop making excuses why I was right that I was helpless and finally….FINALLY BE HAPPY WITH MY CHOICES!

Now, it is not easy to look at your life- HONESTLY look at your life.  It takes courage, strength and fortitude to be honest with yourself and see that you are the only one to hold accountable for where you are.  I still do this all the time: if something in my life is not working out the way I want it to I have to look in the mirror for the person responsible.  Don’t you want to be known as someone who is COURAGEOUS, STRONG AND DETERMINED?  Do you believe Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi or Nelson Mandela listened to their own excuses or the excuses of any one around them?  There was an easier life for them to choose, but they knew what they wanted and were willing to hear a million “No’s” before they achieved their goals.   

And you want to do what? Lose weight? Eat pizza, donuts and beer and blame me when you don’t lose weight? It may look minuscule now in comparison to what another human being is taking on their life.

Look at your entire life, not just your health and fitness, but ANY area where you are not 100% happy and fulfilled. Are you doing the same thing there?  Are you making up reasons, really good reasons why you CAN”T have what you want and why you are RIGHT that you can’t have what you want?  You are the only person who tells yourself that…truly.  You are the only person who will stop yourself from getting anything you want out of life. 

GO GET WHAT YOU WANT!  You will see that your big fat butt is not my problem, but I am a key to the door of your solution.

Have a healthy day!

Recently the British Government published a report stating “Obesity does not result simply from overeating and a lack of exercise, but is a consequence of modern life.”

A consequence of modern life? I have to disagree!

I personally disagree with the article, which in some ways allows us to be more accepting of the obesity related health crisis because it ‘isn’t our fault.’  Curvy Girl Fitness is founded in the belief that beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes, but NOT to the detriment of your health!  The research should indicate it is MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER to have personal responsibility for your health AND the health of those around you. 

 You are modeling the behaviors your family, friends and associates see.  So sure, if you are eating a donut and soda for breakfast that will ENABLE others around you (including your children) to do the same.  But if each and every one of us take on that it is our personal responsibility to set the standard, raise the bar so to speak, on our health and nutrition then others will take it on as well.

Think of this: who do you influence in your life? How can you taking on your own lifestyle HELP people you care about?  Help the people you love to live a healthier life!  Be the solution you wish to find in others and remember, children learn what they see, and we are all children at heart! Start to be a catalyst for healthy eating, regular exercise or even going out dancing regularly!  Anything you do to improve your health and fitness levels will add to all of those around you, and isn’t that an amazing reason to take better care of yourself?

Who deserves the best? You do!  So take it on, your loved ones will thank you!

Have a healthy day!
