Do mile repeats!

Ok, ok…it’s only Halloween lights.
But that just means less than a month until Christmas music is on the radio!
“It’s beginning to look alot…”

F=mxa…that’s good in fitness!
But power in psychology…mmm, not so much.
Robert Greene, classical studies graduate and astute observer of human behavior — 48 laws of power direct the acquisition of power.
(conceal intention, court attention, say less than necessary, keep others in suspended terror, play to people’s fantasies, etc).
And once obtained…social psychology supports:
“Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” -Lord Acton
“Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me, yeah.” (Florence and the Machine, Shake it out)
Let’s let Flo explain this one:
“I wanted to just shake something out,
shake out these regrets,
shake out these things that haunt you….
“And I was thinking of regrets, like,
you know when you feel like you’re stuck in yourself,
you keep repeating certain patterns of behavior,
and you kind of want to cut out that part of you and restart yourself….
“So this song was kind of like,
‘Shake yourself out of it, things will be OK…
But then, the end refrain of ‘What the hell’ is really important as well,
because you’ll dance with the devil again at some point,
and maybe it will be fun…” (songfacts.com)

What’s an easy way to lose weight?

What’s an easy way to eat right?
How can I easily get my insulin response under control?
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
Those who profess to favor freedom,
and yet depreciate agitation,
are men who want crops without plowing up the ground.
They want rain without thunder and lightning.
They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.”
(Douglass, F., West India Emancipation, 1857)

“…speak to the beauty of our dark sides and how much creativity, growth and light actually comes out of those difficult struggles that we have on the inside of our heads that no one else can see.”

It’s rarely the physical demands that make us bail; it’s the mind’s interpretation, evaluation and judgement of those physical signals.
Use the “Worse principle.”
“What’s the worst that could happen?”
Then tell yourself:
“I’ve been worse than this.”
(if you train rightly, then it’s probably true)
Immediate peaceful confidence.
Jogging is different than running.
Jogging is like an acoustic folk song,
and running is like:
As someone said,
“If you aren’t gonna f@&%ing run, then don’t F@!%ing show up.”
