Hello! I just realized that I have a lot of drafts that are stuck in my inbox. I decided to start clearing my inbox and start writing regularly again.
Warning: Not fully finished and a very short article, with a lot of errors, but I hope you get the point!
When you’re faced with a challenge that seems impossible, how do you deal with it? Do you throw up your hands and quit? Or do you still go for it and find a way to succeed?
Same thing applies with working out.
When you’re tired, in pain, and your mind is telling you to quit, what do you do? Do you listen? Or do you fight through that resistance?
Pointers To Push Your Limits
In other words, don’t give up when you’re 80% of the way there and don’t stop right before the finish line, make sure you get to the finish line, and pass it.
Drop phrases like “I can’t do that” and “There’s no possible way I achieve that and setting low standards. That similar to shooting yourself in the foot. Set the standards high.
Are you ready to conquer your physical limits? Take what seems “reasonable” and push it. That way, you start pushing yourself beyond anything you’ve ever tried.
Set goals that you don’t think are possible. You might fail it. You might not. If you succeed, you will know you can do more than you think. If you failed, it’s better than not trying.
Food tips: (Notice the sexy food image above?)
These are 7 foods that you shouldn’t put in the fridge . By putting these foods in the fridge, they spoil faster:
1. Bananas — Storing bananas in the refrigerator can actually disrupt the ripening process. In fact, once refrigerated, a banana may never be able to resume the ripening process even if returned to room temperature. Just think of how devastating that is for the banana :(
2. Sweet Potatoes — When exposed to cold temperatures, starches found in potatoes will turn to sugar, disrupting their flavor and texture, not to mention increasing their sugar content. If you prefer tasteless potatoes that cause weight gain, however, please refrigerate.
3. Tomatoes — Ever had a really amazing tomato right out of the fridge? Me either. Tomatoes actually lose their flavor and become mushy when refrigerated. Yumn’t.
4. Apples — Same as above, apples lose their texture and flavor when refrigerated. Instead, place an apple in the fridge about 30 mins before eating if you prefer your apples cold. That’s what I always do anyway.
5. Onions — If you love soggy onions while also causing the rest of your food to taste and smell like onions, then you’ll definitely want to refrigerate your onions immediately. Otherwise, try storing them in a paper bag (within a cool, dark cabinet) for maximum shelf-life.
6. Avocados — Much like the banana, refrigeration shuts down an avocado’s ripening enzymes. If you want guacamole next month, this may be OK, but if you’re like me, you probably want guacamole today.
7. Coffee — Contrary to popular belief, coffee is best stored at room temperature to allow the natural oils within the coffee bean to activate its pungent aromatic scent. My brother Big Jim, who savagely loves all things coffee, let me in on this little secret. On the flip side, refrigeration can actually cause coffee to absorb odors from other foods in your fridge. Onion flavored coffee anyone? Don’t make that mistake twice guys…
