Hey peoples! I don't got much to share with you today except for this week's list of stuff to read.

But real quick before we get to that can I make the suggestion that you listen to this song.

I know it's so good! I love the lyrics.

All right get to reading! Enjoy!

1. Fitness Consumer Choice: Why Pizza Hut Trumps Food Prep by Tony Gentilcore

This is a really great piece with commentary about why people might make the decisions they do and how coaches fit into it.

2. The Truth About Birth Control and Weight Gain by Dr. Krista Rompolski

Birth control causes you to gain weight, right? That is the reason for my being overweight?

Well maybe, but Dr. Krista does an excellent job of explaining it better than I ever could so go have a look at what she has to say.

3. 7 Ways to Instantly Have a Better Day by Neghar Fonooni

I get so sick and tired of greeting people and getting nothing in return but negatives and bad vibes.

I mean c'mon people! Your alive. You don't have cancer. And you don't live in war-torn Africa.

Could you just smile a little and say how grateful you are to be here today?

Shit can always get worse! Much, much worse.

I think this is an awesome post by Neghar that gives us seven strategies to pull our heads out of our asses, appreciate everything around us, and make each day a good or great day and stop focusing on all the negatives.

Happy moving and heavy lifting!
