Let’s discuss the common misconceptions when it comes to losing weight.

A 30-minute workout session, five days a week, is enough to burn calories and lose weight.

Fact: This is just part of the whole weight control process. You still need to consider your diet and other activities. You might burn 200 calories from a 30-minute workout, and then eat a 500-calorie cronut on your way home.

Leisure walking, moving while standing and doing household chores will not really contribute to weight control because you don’t exert much effort.

Fact: Studies show that aside from your actual workout, you can burn 300-500 calories or more per day if you move, walk and stand the rest of the day. This is almost equivalent to a one-hour cardio workout.

It is better to diet first and lose a significant amount of weight before you engage in physical activity.

Fact: To maximize calorie burn and achieve long-term weight control, you need to combine both—but you need to eat sensibly. If you exercise, you build more muscle, so you have a faster metabolism and more energy.

Most people are only aware of the calories burned from exercising in the gym. But the fact is, the total amount of calories you burn per day is the combination of calories your burn while resting, during your actual exercise session, after exercise, during the extra activities during the day, and even when you eat.

If you were offered the chance to live your own life again, would you seize the opportunity? The only real philosophical answer is automatically self-contradictory: ‘Only if I did not know that I was doing so.’ 

To go through the entire experience once more would be banal and Sisyphean—even if it did build muscle—whereas to wish to be young again and to have the benefit of one’s learned and acquired existence is not at all to wish for a repeat performance, or a Groundhog Day. 

And the mind ought to, but cannot, set some limits to wish-thinking. All right, same me but with more money, an even sturdier penis, slightly different parents, a briefer latency period… the thing is absurd. 

I seriously would like to know what it was to be a woman, but like blind Tiresias would also want the option of re-metamorphosing if I wished. How terrible it is that we have so many more desires than opportunities. (at www.Totallysam.com)

Why Wait For The Opportunity? Create Opportunities By Yourself!

🔴Know your limits. – You can’t be perfect. You can’t do everything yourself. You can’t create a business or live the life of your dreams or make a lot of money if you don’t know your weaknesses, strengths and passions. If you know your limits and what you are capable of, you will know exactly what you need. Once you begin to know yourself, you will realise your weakness and you can fill these weaknesses with others people strength.

🔴Open your eyes. – There is a lot more happening in the world than you see. Stop listening to music all the time you are riding the bus or the train. Maybe there is someone who can change your life in that bus/train. Maybe the person sitting next to you is your next business partner or your husband/wife or your new best friend. You just never know, life is unpredictable, and that’s why you should always keep your eyes wide open.  You might miss an opportunity simply because you were too busy listening to your iPod. Always be on the lookout even when doing simple activities as drinking coffee, riding the bus or walking back home.

🔴Meet new people. – If you want to be presented with more opportunities, simply meet new people. The more people you know, the higher chances you will be presented with new experiences. Go to meetings with people having similar interests as you. Visit conferences. You can even meet people online these days; join different Facebook groups, follow people ontwitter; join LinkedIn. People are not so mean as you think. Also if you are one of those people who meet a lot of people on a daily basis and have a problem remembering their names this app will help you a lot – Anki(This app will make you never forget a name, job position or age again. It does miracles.) Most people are open minded and are always looking for new friendships and connections. One of the reasons Motivationgrid had such a big growth in such a short time is because I meet new people everyday. (at www.Totallysam.com)

    I’m watching Crawlspace



“9 Crawlspace Remake films, this 1 w/@Thestevenweber & than another remake coming in 2015 w/@michaelvartan. 

They have some really good actors in them, but nothing beats what I consider the classic 1986 version with Klaus Kinski which wasn’t the original. 

Am not seeing the relevance of all these remakes. Its a sign that Hollywood is on a creative block or strike. I enjoyed this 2013 version that also starred Lori Louglin but it was clearly a rental or Netflix film.”

Here are some tips to climb back on that treadmill after you’ve fallen off.

1⃣ Don’t Break the Habit – The easiest way to keep things going is simply not to stop. Avoid long breaks in exercising or rebuilding the habit will take some effort. This may be advice a little too late for some people. But if you have an exercise habit going, don’t drop it at the first sign of trouble.

2⃣ Reward Showing Up – Woody Allen once said that, “Half of life is showing up.” I’d argue that 90% of making a habit is just making the effort to get there. You can worry about your weight, amount of laps you run or the amount you can bench press later.

3⃣ Commit for Thirty Days – Make a commitment to go every day (even just for 20 minutes) for one month. This will solidify the exercise habit. By making a commitment you also take pressure off yourself in the first weeks back of deciding whether to go.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” I believe the same idea rings true when it comes to learning how to stay in shape.

If you constantly choose short-term solutions, guess what? Your results will be just as fleeting, but if you take the time to change your lifestyle, you’ll have a much greater chance for success.

You see, fitness isn’t just about losing weight, crash dieting or doing gimmicky programs, but rather learning how your body responds best to food and exercise.

Remember, getting healthy is a journey that shouldn’t end as soon as you reach your goals. Instead, it should evolve into new and better ways to incorporate fitness into your everyday life.

Eating healthy for short periods of time is not good enough; learn how your body responds best to foods that boost your metabolism.  Take the time to research good-tasting, healthy recipes and make these things part of your routine so you can continue to eat right every day and not just because you want to drop a few pounds.
