The World’s Quickest Advice Column, Part 2

Last week, I hit you with a 5,000 word post on getting bigger, so today I figure I’ll smack you in the face with 330 words of motivation, education, and inspiration!

Let’s get started!

I’m overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. Go for a walk.

I need to be healthier. Make ONE decision today that’s better than yesterday.

I do well for a week and then run out of steam. Do less. Use less willpower.

I missed my workout yesterday! Do it today. Do it now.

I want to wake up earlier. Put your alarm clock across the room.

I want to exercise in the morning. Sleep in your workout clothes.

I ate like crap and feel guilty. Stop. Make your next meal healthy and MOVE ON.

I need to lose weight. Cut back on sugar. Eat real food.

I need to get bigger. Pick up heavy things and eat more.

I spend too much time on stupid sites. Install this. For PC users.

I want to travel but don’t have time. Make it a priority.

I want my [significant other] to get healthy. You can’t force them, only inspire.

I always procrastinate. Pick a goal. Pay your friend $50 every time you fail to complete it.

I suck at building healthy habits. Not anymore!

I want to do [crazy fitness goal] and [unrelated crazy fitness goal] at the same time.  “Don’t half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.” -Ron Swanson

I want to look like [ripped celebrity]. Unless you have their resources, it’s an unfair comparison. Pick REAL heroes to follow.

I don’t like my job. Slash your expenses. Start work on something you care about. Choose Yourself. Maybe invent your own job. I did.

Yesterday sucked. Good thing it’s over. Move on.

I’m worried about tomorrow. Focus on today.

What questions do you have for me?

Leave a quick comment and I’ll give you a quick answer.

-Steve

    I wanted to workout early so I set my alarm across the room…believe me at times its not easy getting up at 4 30am(Mon-Fri) but I get my workout out of the way & its been over a year(I started June 7, 2012)& to think my hubby thought I wouldn’t last a week.

    P.s. I don’t use the alarm anymore…its automatic

    I’m so glad I found this blog – you sound just like my friend Luka when we’re cheering each other on. It’s funny how easy it is to turn around the excuses that seem so huge in our mind while we’re making them!

    I used to follow the advice about putting your phone/alarm across the room (actually downstairs, my bedroom’s an open loft to the living room) and that did work for a while, but it turns out I can go up and down stairs and fall back asleep no problem.

    My new habit, then, is to keep the phone downstairs but turn on every.single.light. that I pass. The kitchen light, fluorescent but bright, will be the most important.

    I want to exercise but I can’t stand how sore my muscles get afterwards because they are not use to it

    Oreos are my Kryptonite! I recently moved out so I just haven’t anything like Oreos so that the temptaion is not there, that is good advice though! I will find one that I find at least slightly appealing. I enjoy fruit as well and eat very few vegetables as well and have also lost 15 pounds, but I am just concerned that I may hit a plateau if I can’t incorporate more veggies into my diet.

  • Lydia Burton

    There is hope for me yet! I may start with green beans or sweet potatoes, I really hope I can expand my liking from there! Thank you!

  • I want to wake up earlier: Go to bed earlier.
