Torture Chamber

It's funny the things I hear that stick in my mind.

I really wish that I could report that I heard more good things. I guess that is why obesity is going up every year and our society is getting more and more apathetic.

I was walking through the bank today. It was like a campus library during spring break, you could hear a pin drop.

The teller asks me what I was up to. I told her, "Just doing my banking then going for a run".

Of course another teller jumps into the conversation. "THAT is what what I am doing. I am working then going to my personal trainer."

I wish she had stopped at that but... she. Did. Not.

"It's like going to a torture chamber, when I go I feel like I am going to die."

Why don't you tell us how you really feel?

Honestly, it really, really, REALLY drives me nuts to hear people speak like this.

I went for a run. During my run I got sweaty, my legs hurt and I can even admit that I was tired. But how did I feel about it? I was proud of myself for doing it. I know that I just helped my body to process toxins, burn calories and build muscle  I loved that I went for a run. I loved that I was going to go for a run before the run started. RIGHT NOW I am happy that I did it and I am GRATEFUL for the experience.

Maybe my mindset is part of the reason that I look and feel better than ever even though I'm a couple clicks this side of 40.

Back to the lady with the bad attitude.

If you speak negatively about a situation in the future guess what that experience is going to be like? It's going to be a train wreck. It's going to be something that you despise doing and..guess what? Wait for it... WAIT FOR IT... you are going to QUIT.

Who really wants to be tortured?

I sure don't.

My message today is this:

Work out every day. You don't have to like it but at least don't tell people it's "torture". That's stupid. It's empowering.

Your attitude determines your altitude. If your attitude stinks then SO DO YOU.

I remember the day that my friend Z gave us our first bottle of Sleepworks. Perhaps I am a little biased now because of the first night I tried it but....


We were on out second incentive trip that we earned through Advocare. It was at a place called Amelia Island in North Florida. Even though it was July we had the windows to our $400+ per night room WIDE open. As we drifted to sleep we heard the ocean waves crash and we felt so relaxed and just so amazing. Was it the waves? Perhaps. Was it the feeling of knowing that we were building such an amazing business? Maybe. Or was it that this trip was free? Well....

I think it was the Sleepworks...

Ever since that night Teresa and I have used Sleepworks to help us relax at night. 

Don't get me wrong. It doesn't make you sleep. It is not a pharmaceutical drug. It just relaxes you. 

I totally and completely endorse this product. Does it ever make me feel as good as that first night? Nope. What can I say... the ocean waves sealed the deal. 

The cool thing is that Sleepworks is on sale tile April 2nd, 2013. If you haven't tried Sleepworks you don't know what you are missing. 

Sale ends soon....
