Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I hope the holidays have been treating you excellently 🙂
Now I do have a confession to make. I have neglected you. For that, I’m truly sorry.
The reason I’ve neglected you is because… it turns out my closet is an entrance to Narnia. Aslan needed a responsible adult to save the magical land, and he chose me as Narnia’s savior (LMAO Aslan. “Responsible adult” and you chose me. Clearly this mystical lion is on weed).

It’s been like… years since you’ve heard from me. Hopefully while I’ve been managing my Severely Tiring/Really Exhausting Sacrifice of Self (aka S.T.R.E.S.S.), you’ve been living it up all October.
I love October. Not only can you smell Christmas around the corner, it just so happens that the absolute best people are born in October.
You can’t argue with me. Today IS my birthday after all. Well… it would have been when I started writing this post. My birthday was two days ago.
(I mean, I’m sure great people are born in other months, but Bill Gates is born October 28th. This is the best month. End of story)
I also love October because it’s the perfect time for me to reflect on the past year and have a Damn, I did all that moment. I’ve gone through first loves and first heartbreaks. I’ve experienced the emotional devastation of being robbed then the joy of making that money back. I’ve traveled, met, and competed against people from all over the world. And of course I became FitNate so I could help you unlock them GAINS.
(Honestly it blows my mind how much has happened in one year)

You’re sick of feeling weak. You hate looking in the mirror. And Goddamn you wish every stair you climbed didn’t leave you reeling.
You want to change. You really do.
Yet you tell yourself it’s too complicated. You could never understand dieting. You say working out is too hard. You think, “If only I had the right genes/tools/…”
Alas. Nothing can help you get the change you want.
Unless, you believe in: You. Continue reading “Believe In You”
Working out sucks.
You’re so busy, so frazzled, so unmotivated that even the thought of working out feels like a ridiculously unfair burden.
It’s so tempting to toss the training and nutrition away, and be consumed by work, relationships, or Netflix on the couch. If you’re not seeing the results you want, it becomes even easier to throw in the towel. “I was going to be fat, anyway,” you tell yourself.
When workout laziness strikes and exercise becomes a chore, here’s a technique to get you back on the narrow path to glorious gains. Continue reading “Combat Workout Laziness with This Unexpected Technique”

It’s been only 22 days into the new year and already you’re feeling defeated.
You’ve promised yourself you wouldn’t be a couch potato this year, yet you’re already back to watching 6 hours of The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl per day. You swore yourself off soda, but you can count how many hours it’s been since your last Coca Cola on one hand. You said you’d exercise more, and still your sneakers are as clean as when you bought them.
It’s 2017, and you’re ready to give up. Just like last year.
…. Or the year before
