Fit for Life: End Your Struggles

Let’s face it, life is a struggle.

Unless you are a trust fund baby, or we’re born with the silver spoon in your mouth, nothing comes easy for you.

Look at self-made millionaires.


Most endured years of struggle, late hours and hard work to get where they are today, and many still put in the hours to maintain their status,

Poor people born into a shitty situation struggle as well.

Living in squalor, not knowing where your next meal is coming from, and wearing rags for clothes, can’t be a good way to live.

Even people in the middle face struggles every day.

Supporting a family, paying a mortgage, car payment, private school, or just being able to take a vacation takes hours, days and weeks of long hours, and late nights, just to live a decent life.

The bad news is, that’s the way it is, and there is nothing we can do about it except deal and conduct your daily life in the manner in which you want to be able to live.

In other words, if you want more, work harder, and smarter.

Giving up is an option for some, but that will only make matters worse.

Face the fact that nothing worth having will come easy.

 It’s always been that way, and always will be.

We are put on this earth to struggle til the day we die, so either fight for survival, or wither away.

It’s your mentality and mindset that dictates how you will handle the situation, and that will dictate your fate.

So why make it worse and live with poor health?

I am a discovery channel nerd.

I love watching programs about the wild, and all the science that shows us how this world was created, and how we have evolved as humans.

I was watching a program last week about the rain forest in Brazil, and it dawned on me that every species on this planet faces some kind of struggle.

From birth, everything faces a struggle to survive.

Insects to Birds to Lions, either environment or predators make it difficult just to survive.

Humans in the past had the same issues, only we were at a disadvantage.

Let’s face it, we are not a species meant to physically survive the elements.

It’s the fact that we are intelligent enough to provide resources in order to survive that we still exist.

We don’t grow a fur coat in the winter, and we can’t withstand long hours in the sun.

We don’t have protective armor, claws, or venom.

We can’t camouflage ourselves nor do we have the ability to outrun most animals.

Our most vital organs are exposed, and our feet can’t withstand the abuse most other mammals can.

In general, we are a weak and vulnerable species by nature.

But the good news is that we have the intelligence to create fire, shelter, and protective clothing to withstand the elements. We can out smart predators and manufacture all the necessities to live a comfortable life.

So, my question to you is…. why are we content with ruining our health and making things more difficult?? 

Do we not know how lucky we are??


Think about it.

We have evolved to the point that we don’t need to worry about the elements or some wild animal coming into our dens and eating us.

We have resources to live a nice productive life, but we are destroying ourselves by eating garbage food, and becoming a sedentary population.

Have we forgotten how lucky we are to not have to look over our shoulders, and travel through hell to find our next meal??

Why do we choose to live in pain, on medication, overweight, sick, and tired all the time, when we have all the resources to take care of ourselves, and live a healthy, vital, and productive life?

I hate it when someone says “I struggle with my weight” or I see someone unnecessarily living in pain, because I know how easy it is to make changes and turn things around.


I have a simple formula for ultimate health.

 It involves 4 things you must habitually do on a daily basis, and you will be guaranteed good health.


         1.      Eat clean food. Stay away from packaged/processed garbage and eat only real natural food.

         2.      Drink enough water. You need to consume 1/2 your bodyweight in ounces of water daily to maintain optimal health.

         3.      Get some sleep. When we sleep, we reset and repair. Lack of sleep is detrimental to your health.

         4.      Move. Do 30 minutes of exercise daily. (this is why my clients at Providence Fit Body Boot Camp are so fit and strong)


It’s that simple. You don’t need to hunt, make clothing, create fire, or struggle to survive.

It’s all right in front of us, but the human population is destroying itself.

I didn’t write this to be negative, or to depress anyone, but to shine a light on how far we have come, and how far back we are going if most folks don’t start making some changes in their life.

The struggles will get worse.

If you think things are difficult for you now, try doing it in poor health, or doing things in pain and broken down.

Realize how fortunate you are, and instead of opting to destroy ourselves, just pay attention, and make some adjustments, and this thing called life that we all struggle with, becomes a whole lot better.

It’s never too late to turn it around.

Material things that we work for will always come and go, but once our health gets to a certain point, there is no coming back.

If being in top shape and living a healthy lifestyle appeals to you, reach out and seek help from a pro.

We are always here for our members, and if you are not a member already, shoot me a message, and we can help you reduce at least one struggle in your life.

Life is hard as it is, so stop making it harder by neglecting your health and fitness.


Committed to your success,


Let’s face it, life is a struggle.

Unless you are a trust fund baby, or we’re born with the silver spoon in your mouth, nothing comes easy for you.
