I've just been reading a number of articles - about magic strategies for 'holiday-season' eating.
a.) don't let food touch your plate
b.) eat with your non-dominant hand
... they go on and on
BS - get over it!
Have fun, and just learn self-responsibility!
shifting the blame elsewhere, and thinking there's some funky magical 'thing'
Hey - if you have one-day gorging yourself crazy - enjoy it! then get onto knowing and acting on the potential ramifications.
Up your activities (with fun & vigor)
Be Juiced! Be in the Now, be realistic
Well, we're fully into December and the Holiday Season now - so tonnes of yummy food around.
I've been working on a fabulous list of amazing food (Superfoods) - to help you with your nutrition.
I did a 5-part Evaluation:
*ONE: ‘Food from the Land’ – It must be a whole, natural food, that hasn’t been highly-processed or contain any artificial ingredients
**TWO: The Food must be super-nutrient dense. ‘Nutrient-dense’ is the simple analysis of the number of nutrients in ratio to the number of calories. Ie. High nutrient density is when nutrients are high in relationship to low calories.
You get all your essential nutrients for the least number of calories. (Maximum bang for your buck!)
***THREE: They have to be widely available, ie. common ‘everyday’ foods, that you will be familiar with. (Some supersonic food from the Amazonian forests can sound great, but if the reality is you can’t get access to it – then it’s not a solution!
****FOUR: Plus are Affordable, so you can easily action it into your lifestyle, and not be a luxury treat. Solutions are consistent and constant actions! Be aware to season’s and proximity of the source to ensure the ‘price’ doesn’t get warped.
*****FIVE: And Taste Great. Hey, this gives with Principle x – ‘Use your Brain’ If you don’t enjoy it, you never going to do it forever.

“Being – Follow your heart and intuition
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma-which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your inner voice. And most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”

A few years ago at the Seattle Special Olympics, nine contestants, all physically or mentally disabled, assembled at the starting line for the 100-yard dash. At the gun, they all started out, not exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race to the finish and win.
All, that is, except one boy who stumbled on the track surface, tumbled over a couple of times and began to cry.
The other eight heard the boy cry. They slowed down and looked back. They all turned around and went back. Every one of them.
One girl with Down's Syndrome bent down and kissed him and said, "This will make it better."
All nine linked arms and walked across the finish line together.
Everyone in the stadium stood - and the cheering went on for several minutes. People who were there are still telling the story. Why?
Because deep down we know this one thing: What matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What truly matters is helping others win, even if it means slowing down and changing our course.

When I ask you to listen to me
and you start giving advice
you have not done what I asked.
When I ask you to listen to me
and you begin to tell me why
I shouldn't feel that way
you are trampling on my feelings.
When I ask you to listen to me
and you feel you have to do something
to solve my problem
you have failed me, strange as that may seem.
So please listen and just hear me.
and, if you want to talk,
wait a minute for your turn;
and I'll listen to you.

National Hug day today
Great poem by Dean Walley
It's wondrous what a hug can do
A hug can cheer you when you're blue
A hug can say "I love you so"
Or "Gee, I hate to see you go."
A hug is "Welcome back again"
And "Great to see you, where've you been?"
A hug can smooth a small child's pain
And bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug: There's just no doubt about it
We scarcely could survive without it.
A hug delights and warms and charms --
It must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are great for Fathers and Mothers,
Sweet for sister, swell for brothers
And chances are your favorite aunts
Love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them, puppies love them,
Heads of State are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier
And make your travels so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of them
The more you give the more there's more of 'em,
So stretch those arms without delay
And give someone a hug today!

People are unreasonable, illogical and self centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The kindness you show today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Be kind anyway.
Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down
by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
Think big anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help, but may attach you if you help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you've got,
and you might get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

Wow - what an interesting NFL season here in the US. I reckon there's as many as 20 teams all valid SuperBowl contenders.
What's the key for them, to get to the next level. (I can't tell you, as none of the teams have paid me enough for that priviledge YET!)
But he's some secret's for you!
1) Know your game
It’s hard to win if you don’t know what game you are playing! Yet many folks don’t know. Your game in this sense is the BIG picture of what you are going to do.
2) Design a WINNABLE game
The key to high performance in any game begins with how the game is set up. Often we set ourselves up to fail with fuzzy objectives OR impossible time frames. A winnable game is well thought out and takes into account the whole of your life.
3) Be an IMPACT player
Impact players practice more than they play. And when they play they play to their strengths. To win in your game you must first know the skills that lead to winning then you set up regular practices to improve your skill over time.
4) Play to Win! Always Keep Score
Every game is unique and you need a solid game plan for every game you are playing. You also have to be ready to adapt to the game quickly when your plan is not working!
If you REALLY want to win, you have to prepare yourself for the game. Then after the game, you debrief so that you can be better prepared for the next game. This is a powerful process that only occurs when you separate your work into unique winnable games.
The only way to know if you are winning is to keep score! It is essential to your winning season to set upa score card to track the things that really matter in the game. This includes tracking the activities that lead to results AND the results that you are playing for. By keeping score of each game you get an instant feedback tool.
5) Win the Inner Game
Your thoughts, feelings and emotions have a significant impact on how well you perform in your game. Consider these key points...
Your frameworks (thought patterns) determine the options you see at any moment.
You have a framework for every aspect of life: success, failure, initmacy, money, risk etc.
Every framework you have served you at some time, but it may not be serving you now
With diligence and skill you can upgrade your frameworks to your new game
Feelings of inner conflict are inevitable when you play a bigger game that you are used to
These feelings of inner conflict will block you from taking the actions you need to take
Quite often our inner conflicts are subconscious! We don’t see them but they block our actions
Through careful exploration you can remove the blocks that prevent you from playing your best game
6) Bring Your Game to Life in a Winning Environment
The environment is everything; literally, everything; your home, office, books, family, friends, colleagues, finances, computer, music, spiritual practices, clothes even your body! It’s all part of your environment. Over time your environment becomes a reflection of who you are on the inside. So it is VERY likely that it reflects the games you’ve played in the past.
7) Build a Winning Team
It is VERY hard to win when you are playing alone! This is a profound truth in the new age of games. To play your best, you need to surround yourself with others who are ALSO playing thier best game while supporting YOU. Then your best game supports and inspires others. It’s a beautiful thing. In this world, even when you lose a game it can be inspiring. Because you see how well others are playing together and that inspires you to play better and build your team to be even stronger.

Statistics are like a Bikini!
1. what they show is interesting
2. What they hide is the key.
What about your Fitness? Are you a slave to stats?
What's really going on below?
** Think about Strength
...there's 2 forms of strength
A) sarcoplasmic - where blood is forced into the muscle and toxin plus minerals are left as the 'residue': giving a 'bulked' look.
B) Myofibrillar - where the muscle fiber is replicated by cell division.
With Myofibrillar the real effect is 'hidden' - but massively functional!
Pineapple is the King of Myofibrillar strength.

1. We all know and have heard that.
2. Live it, breathe it, action it everytime.

5. Well you've got to shake it up (Obviously with Pineapple BIO-OSCILLATION we do exactly that)
a.) Stir your brain into the next-level aswell
6. Think that it will be your last!
7. You know the feeling when you're holiday in a magnificent place, and the last few days you really enjoy, because you know they're your last!

You have to construct every parameter around that

There's a great story - about some researchers from the Univ of Washington, and a study about Context
1. A violin player, with a antique stradivarius was in the Washington subway - playing music
a.) The odd person dropped a $,perhaps $2 into his hat
b.) Only one person - stopped and really admired, and that was a young girl
2. Now this Violin player - wasn't just any violin player - he was the legendary Joshua Bell!
3. After one hour of playing is total income was $32
4. The night before - he had played at the Washington Philharmonic, where gate receipts were 10,000 times more - $300,000!
5. It's all about the context - and how people place the context!
6. The young girl is interesting, because she didn't have any 'affected' context about someone playing music in a subway, and was just open to the sheer magic being played!
7. How do you place your Fitness in Context!

I bet you're spending lots more on things you will get rid of in a few years!
