Hello friends, fans, and family,
thank you so much for your support and love. You are awesome! As we flow through this summer and enjoy the AC and waters of the ocean and/or the pool. Take a moment to appreciate it. I know it sounds silly but sometimes we are so busy at whatever, we don't take the time to enjoy the here and now. Unfortunately, this includes when we are supposed to be enjoying ourselves. We are working even though we are supposed to be relaxing and/or recovering. Or even worst we are worried about our work and/or our situation instead of taking the time that we already have set aside to enjoy ourselves and recover.
So, take the time and joy your day, moment, and/or year. You have already set aside the time to relax and recover so do so. They are times when you are going to have to take your work home to get it done and work over time and extra time and additional time and so on. So, when you have set the time aside to relax and recover you should do so. I have learned that relaxing and recovering should be apart of your plan anyway.
Okay, some up coming events for me is the Fit Expo in San Diego, Ca. I don't get out much because I am always working and/or working on work, haha. Even though the Fit Expo is a type of work thing I intend to still have fun. No, I do not have a booth, yet. I am thinking about getting a booth. A booth is expensive so I want to have an awesome booth complete with 8010az - Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk stuff and more. I also want to know if y'all would like to see me post a video of me being there? I may go live while I am there but I don't know if I can do it without getting in trouble or if my phone can handle it, haha. If I do go live it is going to be on my Twitch Channel which you can find on the main IME Page Here or on Twitch.tv/8010az. The FitExpo is in San Diego OCTOBER 27-28, 2018
I am going to close with, I always want your feed back so that I know that you are getting something out of my videos, writings, and live stream. Even if it is just a getaway thing for you. A place where you can go to relax and enjoy yourself. I have gotten a lot of request for videos so I am doing more videos and posting them on YouTube and on here, the IME blog as well as on Steemit. I look at the comments and views so if there is no views and no comments and no likes then I am thinking that you are not enjoying my content. You Tube looks at this as well but I do it to see if there is any complements, questions and/or concerns. But when I get nothing it is discouraging, because I don't know if you are enjoying my content or if I am doing well in answering your questions. That is why I am always saying, please, like, follow, and subscribe because this is how I am gauging how I did in my content, through your interactions. Thank you so much for your help and encouragement. You all are awesome and welcome to the Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk!
Hello friends, fans, and family,
there are going to be times when you are not going to want to do anything, especially if it is something that you don't enjoy doing. For and example, working out and changing your fitness level. Yes, it sounds good and a lot of people are going to be like, I am going to do it too. But the reality is, no. No, the are not and I will tell you why. The reason why is because it sounds good when saying it and they may even get a lot of support and encouraging words from friends and the public. But when they are not in the lime light no more and when they are in there bed and it is time to get up to go to the gym and workout there is no one there to say, hey, you got to do this. If they don't have that drive internally so when the mode or enthusiasm of the idea of working out wears off and there is nothing left but the pain. It is not going to be easy to say, yes, it is cold, and yes I want to sleep but it is time for me to get up and get out.
So, yes, you can do it and yes, so can all of them who say that they want to do it. However, the reality is that you must do it even when you don't want to do it, understand. Once you are able to do this consistently you will achieve your fitness goals. Also, don't worry about what the next person is or is not doing your focus should be on yourself and your goals. Don't allow your goals be put on the back burner because you are so worried about what someone else is or is not doing.
I am going to close with: You can do it. Some of my favorite motivational speakers that I like is, CT Fletcher and Gabriel Sey. They have an awesome workout and motivational skills. I also like Macc Truc and a few more fitness professionals. I give you them so that you know that is who I use when I get down if I am not using myself as motivation. Remember that you are awesome and you are awesome just for being you. Thank you for your support and love. I am Isaac (Fire Hawk) Middleton, #actor, #music, #singerandsongwriter, #cdbaby, #model, #8010az, #teamfirehawk, #thefirenation
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are well. Welcome back fro another segment of the I.M.E. Blog. This week has been crazy for me. I am hoping that I am able to get a handle on things, haha. So, how are you doing? Well, I hope. I hope that you are doing well. Happy 4th of July and enjoy your day, week and year.
Ah, today I want to talk about starting over. As the title suggest in life we get to start over from time to time. Now, you need to understand that I am watering things down a bit and marginalizing things as well. Not too often get to start over and not too often that we are able to start over. Sometimes it is best that we are not able to start over. They are many areas that we can't start over and one of many is being born and redoing the the past. I can't go back into my mother's womb and start over as a baby. I cannot go back to my High School Days and redo that either. In some cases it is good that I don't, haha. But they are areas of our lives where we can and in some case must start over. Such as, starting a new career. Technically that is not starting over because it is a new career but starting at the bottom and trying to move up the ladder again. That part is starting over because you are going to have to be at the bottom again and work you way back up to the top again. If you start a new career you would be in essence, starting over. If you break up with your boy friend or girl friend and decide to give it another go you would be starting over. You can even consider starting a new relationship with someone else as starting over because you got to start again with getting to know this person and sharing your feeling with this person, taking a chance of being hurt, again.
For me I am stating over because I am starting a new career. Even though I have done it off and on for several years this is my first time really giving it a shot and I am really depending on getting some sort of success. People who start new careers in any field feel this way. I feel like I am starting over because everything is new to me and there is always that fear o what if. That what if fear is so deadly. That what if fear kills more dreams than negative people. I think, what if the people don't like me and my career ends even before I can get started in this field? What if I can't find enough work to sustain me? What if I can't grow and improve? What if my age and my heritage stops me from moving forward and growing my business. What if I don't make enough sales? What if I can't get engagements to my products and videos? What if I can't get the interest of the people to even checkout my products. What if I am drowned in competition and no one even get a chance to even review my work. What if someone is working against me and kills my efforts before I can even get it out to the people for review?
So, you see these what ifs can go on and on. You can also see how these what ifs can and do kill people's dreams of; starting a new career, going back to school, finishing school and/or getting in good physical condition. Don't get me wrong you must ask yourself some tough questions in order to prepare you for what may come but if dwelled on too long it will kill your effort and you won't do anything. Weighting out the risk is okay. You might sort out the whole thing and you may come to the conclusion that you can't do it. However, if you never try is that something that will hunt you for the rest of your life. Also, if you are going to try something like finishing school then, really try to finish school don't half do it. I understand that starting over is not easy and the term starting over usually comes after a failure. Let's be honest here, it hurts, and you are feeling low and this may even be your lowest you ever felt. But you have the chance to start over. Yes, it may take time to learn this new quest that you are on and yes it may take a lot of effort on your part to get the minimum amount that others seem to already know. But, that does not mean that you cannot do it. Encourage yourself and do your research. Yes, it is going to take a lot of work on your part but you know that already.
I am going to close with, no matter what you choose to do. If you take you take the time to prepare and plan. Realizing the work and effort that is going to have to be put into something then I think that you will be successful. Don't give up, never give up. You can do it. Have a wonderful and blessed day. Thank you for your support.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that your day is going well. First I want to start off by saying this has been a crazy two weeks, y'all. My computer failed, also know as crashed and my studio recording devices quit working also known as broke, haha. I have done what I could y'all. I am beyond frustrated. I have not been able to do any gaming and I was getting ready for my big push to become a Twitch.tv affiliate and putting out more YouTube videos as well. All of that is on hold now because all of my devices is not working, out of service, hahaha, it's broke y'all... I know I am venting in my words here but that is okay. Releasing of stress in this form is good. I also workout and jog and do stairs steppers and all of that, haha. I digress, In lue of all of this I decided to do some spring cleaning and get set for when my computer get out of the shop. I will still post some videos from my phone to YouTube but I like adding my graphics and stuff, hehe.
I am using my friend's laptop, some of you may not know what a laptop is, haha, but that's okay. I am going to do what I can from this laptop but all of my graphics that I crated and purchased over time was on my computer, ya know, so, back to square one on that. I should have had some backup files... hmmm, note to self, get back up hard drive or backup to cloud, yeah. Okay, my music that I created for my song was on my computer and that is now gone so I am going to have to recreate that as well. I am not sure if I am going to be able to recreate it as it was.
Wow, I got a lot of work to do once I get my computer back, huh. In addition to that I am the owner of the Sea Wheat Store, I am promoting that as well, not to mention the OBO Blog and YouTube channel. I maybe doing too much?! Huh. Well, the way that I have it set up it should not be too much on me... most of which has been pushed back to next year and just once a month when i am able to do it. I may, if I am able higher some writers like I have done in the past this will decrease the load on me and give other people a chance to showcase there writing talents. What I may also do is higher some virtual assistants to help me out in various areas. So, that is my plan in a nutshell and as always is it all subject to change without notice, on a wim even, haha.
But seriously if I am able I will higher some help, I will. I look for help in many different areas, as I mentioned before, writers, virtual assistants and more over time. Thank you for all of your support and love you all are awesome. You are... You are awesome for who you are not just for being an excellent support of me, haha.
I am going to close with, things will happen that will knock you off of your feet. However, it is your choice whether you decide to stay on the ground crying or if you are going to get back up and keep trying. People are not going to blame you for wanting to stay on the ground. They might even be a little relieved because they don't have to face you in the proverbial battle. So, in that I say, fellow Fire Hawks, Team Fire Hawks, On Fire for....
Welcome to the Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk! Haha, 8010az and peace, much love. Stay Strong, Stay Focused and Stay Motivated
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are having an awesome day. Thank you for your support and thank you for your feed back and love. You are awesome and a motivation to me. Thank you. I am totally honored to have you in my life, and community. I have a lot to learn and I am working on it every day.
I have been working on my new Christian single which will be apart of my gospel EP which I am expecting to release next year December 2019. I am doing this through CD Baby which is an awesome platform. They are great people, and they give you tools that will aid you every step of the way in your creation processes. I have been with CD Baby for a very long time. So, admittingly so, I have made my fair share of mistakes. Every time I see some of my music I see the mistakes that I made in that processes. Some I was able to fix over time and others are just reminders of my learning of that time period.
So, I am going to strongly suggest that you take your time and take a break from time to time if nothing else to regroup and refocus. Some of my mistakes was nothing more than fatigue, in short I was tired. If I had take some time to regroup and refocus I would have caught those errors.
I started an online store and I would like for you to check it out. If you like night lights and watches then this is a great sight for you. We even have clothes and sun glasses.
In closing, I will always encourage myself and you should always encourage others as well as yourself. Yes, life is hard but if it was easy we would not appreciate it. I will always encourage you, hopefully, either through, my writings, my music, my clothes and my sayings. I want you to be encouraged. You must also encourage yourself. I believe in you. You must believe in yourself. Thank you again for being so awesome. Checkout the Sea Wheat Store and my CD Baby Page. I am hopeful that you will like it enough to make some purchases. Not just to help me but to also encourage yourself.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
thank you so much for your support and love. You are so awesome. Thank you for being a part of the Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk! You are excellent. Okay, I pose the question which platform is good for streaming? When I say that I mean like full time YouTuber and/or D-Tuber / Streamer. I am a part time streamer on Twitch as 8010az - Da Fire Hawk. I have seen Twitch streamer's go from part time to full time like, Bass Corn Bread he is an excellent streamer on Twitch. I am learning how to balance my online career with my real life. This is very important to me. I felt bad about all of the breaks that I had to take from my stream and video creation because of my real life. I think that I am finally getting to a point in all of this where I feel it is finally going good. Honestly, I have a lot to learn, still but I am on the right path, finally.
I lost some subscribers from YouTube and D-Tube because I was trying too hard. I was putting out three videos a week and blogging and artwork and streaming on Twitch. I changed my Twitch streaming schedule to Sundays just one day a week. My live viewers are finally starting to grow. You can find me on the CGN network and on Twitch and on the main page of the IME Website. I was also trying to write on Vocal which is a great platform, but I was doing way too much so I was burnt out and failing in my everyday life. To gain a better understanding of what I am talking about checkout this video. (Click Here)
In addition to streaming for hours upon hours a day I was also creating videos for two different platforms and blogging. Please, don't misunderstand, I enjoy doing what I do and the best part of it all is being able to make my own schedule. I got a little depressed because some of my friends died over the last ten months and I was having some personal problems. To add to this, I take my work very seriously and when I started losing followers and subscribers on Face Book, YouTube and D-Tube, I was downtrodden. I always want my friends, fans, and family to enjoy my work. I want all of my supporters to get something out of my work every time. However, I do understand that this is not always going to happen, but this is what I want. Yes, it's a recipe for disaster, haha. So, I am managing my time better and I am prioritizing. My friend Savo shared something about doing what you really want to do in life. If you really want to do something you can, and you should, and people do make that time to do that something.
I needed to regroup and refocus and decide what I really want to do. It is not about the money but at the same time the money is needed to live and pay bills. Ah, that is the truth, money is needed. I believe that when people say that it is not about the money I think that they are saying it is not only about the money. I believe that they enjoy doing what they are doing because they love doing it. So, in that you have to understand that, there will be times when that streamer may not see the money coming in. They may have to get another job, and readjust there hours so that they can continue streaming, and making videos, and doing artwork, and continue to blog. Twitch, YouTube and D-Tube are great platforms to do all of this.
Anyone who worked with me on any of my projects know how hard I work and know how hard it is just to put out one video much less do that and stream and blog and do acting and do artwork. It can be overwhelming if it is not kept into prospective. So, what I needed to do is decide on my priorities, and the question came up about which platform should I focus on, YouTube or D-Tube? Growing on YouTube can be very difficult, and D-Tube is new. So, which platform should I focus on? Also will my content be relevant and accepted on D-Tube. I placed some test videos on D-Tube and I continued with some videos on YouTube and my channel started growing but no interaction thus no likes and no comments on either platforms. D-Tube pays for comments and likes or up votes. So, I feel bad asking for likes and comments on D-Tube because it seemed like all I wanted was the money. However, I really want to hear from my viewers. I want to know what they have to say about my topic and my video(s).
I've decided to put out one video per platform per month. I changed this from once a week because I was burning myself out again. It does hurt when I put so much effort into my videos/Streams and no viewers, no views and no comments. The best way to not burn myself out is to do it in a progression that will allow me the time to do great work and recover. Even though I am doing two videos per month it is still pressing on me to do something once a week because I felt like I should be doing more. So, yes, you guest it I decided to do both.
Please, keep in mind that I am doing two videos, streaming, blogging, artwork, and all of the background work as well as editing. So, I am doing a lot, but I still felt like I should do more. My goal was to see if I could do this full time and I would base this off of interactions, comments, stream and video engagements and so on. This was my plan but I got nothing; no interactions, no stream engagements, and no video views/watch time and no comments. So, yeah, this was discouraging to me. As a result of that I started watching other YouTubers and D-Tubers and Twitch Streamers to see what they are doing and try to see what is working for them. On D-Tube the most popular videos where mostly about crypto-currency, followed closely by cooking videos and travel videos. D-Tube Is still young so I expect them to grow and in time maybe my potential viewers/subscribers will find my content of some interest. Yes, there is still hope. Next, I did my YouTube assessment, and sadly the same results. So, now I am thinking that it is me. I am not putting out valued content. I watch other YouTubers and I saw and heard about how they grew their channels. At the time I thought that it was a good idea. So, I implemented some of there strategies and I started losing even more subscribers. I was not growing like I had invisioned, haha.
This obviously bothered me, after some time, I watched my own videos and try to figure out what I was doing wrong. I also, asked a friend of mine to help me and he pointed out so many things that I could not fix everything in one setting. I decided that I would make a game plan and sick to it. I would fix these issues as I could and I would improve over time. I announced on D-Tube and YouTube that I would only be doing videos once a month. I lost even more subscribers on both platforms, haha. I pondered my decision and I decided to stick to it because I still needed to work, and this is what would be best for me. I would not burn myself out and this would give me more time to put together quality videos which over time I can improve on.
So, I decided to do both platforms once a month this way I am not over doing it and I am giving myself enough time. I am doing my blog once a week and I am doing artwork once a week. I am also doing my music once every three months and streaming once a week. I decided to try this plan for 90 days to see if this plan works for me.
I am an actor, so, I am doing that as well, ah, when I get work. Because this is out of my control I am adjusting all of the others tasking to this one. Acting or being a professional actor is my main goal. I enjoy doing it all and even though I am not getting any money for any of it right now I am going to continue to do it. That is why people like me say that we are not doing it for the money. I am not getting no money for any of these projects or at least not enough to be of any real value in paying bills.
Which leads me to my next business venture and this is all about the money, haha. I started an online store and the name of it is: The Sea Wheat Store. The Sea Wheat Store is small and we only have a few items right now but I am hoping that as we gain more sales we will grow as I learn and understand what you the customer want. I am focusing on giving the best quality products and a great online shopping experience. So, please, checkout the Sea Wheat Store and let me know what you think about it.
I am going to close with, people are going to always say what you cannot do. However, the honest truth is that it is up to you. If you decide to do acting, do your research, take classes and get it done. If you want to go back to school then same thing, do your research, find courses that you want to do and get it done. No matter how long it takes. I have had people to discourage me and every time I allow them to do that I feel bad and they are bragging to their friends of how they stop me from doing whatever. My realization comes in after the opportunity has passed and the only person hurting and mad is me. So, I say again, don't allow people to steal your dream. Learn, study, do your research and get it done. Thank you for being a part of the Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk! Have a wonderful and blessed day and welcome to the Fire Nation...

Hello friends, fans and family,
I am going to be making updates to the I.Middleton Entertainment website. This will include the layout as a whole and programs and pages within the website. I like the fact that all of my products can be found on the main page but it is getting a bit cluttered. Ah, I also may end up discontinuing some pages with in the website as well. I am always looking for and incorporating your inputs. So, if you like something about the website and don't want it to go away please let me know and I will take that into consideration. If there is a particular product that you want to continue to see and/or purchase let me know that as well.
Find me on social media:
1) Face Book
6) CD Baby
9) CGN - 8010az
10) Discord - 8010az
You being an IME supporter is very important to me and I want to hear from you, even if you don't want to see any changes at all. Here is my tentative plan which may change depending on your inputs. I am going to discontinue the video/vBlog page, IME Movies, and The JB&I Show page. I am going to Merge the IME Sales page and the IME Amazon Store page so that it will just be the IME Sales Page. I am also going to discontinue the Products page and all of that will be on the Sales page, well, at least a link will be on there.
These changes will happen this year and the purpose is to make it more user friendly and make it easier for you to find our products, services, and affiliate links. IME is the company and the brand is 8010az, The Fire Nation, Team Fire Hawk, Isaac M, and of course IME products. We also are affiliates so those products will be on our pages as well. By making the IME website more user friendly you as the supporter can search our pages and find all of the products that you may want to support. You mentioned how hard it was for you to find some of the products that you would like to support and we have heard you. As per your request we are going to keep the stay motivated page, however, be aware the the load time is going to be a little bit longer due to the fact that we are loading YT videos.
Thank you so much for your support and love and I hope that you are having an awesome day. I want to hear from you, ah, tell me what's your favorite product(s) and/or what do you like about the IME website? You can even tell me what you hate about the IME website. Whatever you would like to share with me is good. I want to hear from you. Never forget that it is not always about what you can get out of it but sometimes it is about what you can give and in that you get the most out of it.
I am going to close with, things will not always go as you planned it. Be ready for that as much as you can. You will have to adjust but that does not mean that you can not over come it. Be the best version of yourself that you can be even in the hard times. As much as it is about the end results it is also about the journey there. Love y'all. Stay Focused, Stay Strong and Stay Motivated. #staymotivated, #teamfirehawk, #8010az, #thefirenation, #isaacm
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are well. I am working on my first book. It is a sci-fi book and I am expecting it to be completed in about two years so maybe around and about 2020, October it will be done. I will give you all more information on it as I get closer to finishing it. I am also working on my next sing in my gospel ep. I am hopeful that it will be done this year of 2018. However, I am not expecting it to be done until 2019 in November. So, that is what I am working on and its prospective releases.
They are a lot of great movies that are coming out and that has came out. TV Shows are wrapping up for the most part but they are so good that I think that it is worth watching again and again, haha. Thank you for reading my content and for being such a great supporter. I always read your comments and respond when I am able. So, thank you so much for your support and please continue to comment, like, subscribe and share as well as suggest.
Today, I want to talk about my fitness goals. I have been doing a fitness program that involves me doing a protein meals during the day and a sensible meal at the end of the day. So, basically protein during the day and a regular meal at the end of the day. All of the water that I can drink, BCAAs and Multivitamins. My workouts are six days a week and one day off. It is mostly cardio but also push-ups, squats, curls, and so on. It is a lot harder than it seems. They are days when I want to just eat what I want but I don't because I have a goal and my goal is to lose at least thirty pounds and build muscle. So far so good and I am thankful that I have such a strong support structure helping me in this effort.
I am going to close with, times things will be hard and we may not know how to proceed from a recent failure. The best way to do this is one step at a time and one day at a time. Never forget how awesome you are and thank you again for your support.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are having a good day. Thank you for reading and for being an awesome supporter. You are awesome and just for being here you are a part of the team, Team Fire Hawk! It has been a very busy week for me, but I wanted to take some to encourage you and to thank you for being so awesome and for being a part of Team Fire Hawk. Thank you so much for your support.
Okay, you are going to come into pop-ups in your life often. However, that does not mean that you are not going to be able to stick to your fitness goals. What you are going to have to do is adjust and overcome. Yes, I know that it is easier said than done. I believe that you can do it. You must believe in yourself. I know how hard it is to adjust after you got your flow going and you are in your grove and everything is falling into place then suddenly you must adjust your workout schedule for whatever reason. Maybe you must pick the kids up for practice early or maybe you must go into work early or maybe you must stay later than you normally stay. Whatever the reason is these seemingly simple adjustments can mess you all up and the first thing that seems to always suffer is your workout sessions.
If you don't workout you will never achieve your fitness goals. You took the time to research, plan and prepare and/or at least you hired someone to do it for you like a personal trainer. So, if you give up now you have wasted your time and money and all that effort has gone to waste. So, what do you do? What should you so? You should adjust your schedule maybe you need to change your workout day(s) and/or maybe you need to work out earlier or later. The bottom line is you must be determined to work out so that you can achieve your fitness goals.
I believe that once you have achieved your fitness goal people are going to be asking you how you do it and/or how did you do it with your work schedule, or with kids, or with all of the pop-ups that you have in your life. However, if you quit and never complete and/or achieve your fitness goals they may not say anything. They might even say something to the affect that you were too busy anyway and/or it was too big of a goal for you to achieve. I don't know about you but that would eat me up.
I am going to close with, adjustments are always going to happen from time to time but your determination, commitment, and steadfastness will show once you have successfully completed your fitness goals. It is my belief that if you continue to try and push yourself and adjust and learn you will achieve your fitness goals. Have a wonderful and blessed day. I hope that I have helped you in some way. Thank you again and take care always.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are having an awesome day. And if you are not having a good day then I am hopeful that after reading this you will be having an awesome day. I started a new workout routine and food intake program for the purpose of losing weight and trimming up. It is a big thing for me because I love to eat, and I also enjoy sweets. I also developed a community of friends in the place that I ate at. So, I felt compelled to go there and I wanted to go because my friends were there. This became a problem when I decided to eat better and lose weight and to get back into the gym.
You see, I could not do both. I could not eat all of the junk food that I wanted to eat while chatting with my friends, and also get back into the gym. Getting back in shape was and is very important to me but I could not go to the gym and eat nothing but junk food. I tried, yes, I tried to eat junk food and hang out with friends. But one or the other began to suffer. So, I had to make some choices and of course I talked to my friends about it and they said that I should not even try to get back in shape. Because, I was at the spot in my life where I would not, and I could not change and that I should just gave up.
I did have some friends who supported me. But most of them felt hurt because I would not eat all the junk food and drink all of the alcohol that I used to eat and drink. They said, that it felt like I was separating myself from them and that it was weird to have me around them anymore. Honestly, I was trying so hard to be a part of the circle that I have known for so long. So, it was the opposite, however, I found myself talking about my achievements in the gym and I was told that they thought that I was bragging, and I really was not, bragging. I was just, so happy to be back in the gym and to see the progress that I was making in the gym. I wanted to share this awesome information with my friends. In the conversation I quickly realized that the information that I was putting out was not well received or wanted.
Some people are born with perfect genetics. They don't have to work hard in the gym to get the body that they want. They can miss a few meals and/or eat all they want that is it they got the body that they want. Or, they can eat all the junk food that they want and still maintain that perfect body. If you're like me then you must work hard, extremely hard. If I had to say something about myself and genetics, then I would say I am the opposite of the person with perfect genetics.
Some people tell me that they can't work out and be healthy because of their poor genetics. They tell me that they have or at risk for high blood pressure and high cholesterol and so on. So, I am going to tell you like I told them. You should get approval from your doctor. Get your doctor's advice and even their recommendation(s). Once you are cleared by your doctor to workout, eat healthy, whatever. Then at that moment you have no excuses. So, stop giving yourself reasons to slack off. If you did not work out for three or more days and you’re on your fifth day with no workout, your slacking. If your fast food day/Cheat day is more than just one day a week, your slacking. If you have gone three months or more and you have not evaluated your fitness program, your slacking. You need to always evaluate your fitness and health programs to see where you can improve yourself and improve the program.
I am going to close with, be the best version on yourself that you can be. Your mind set is everything. You must train your mind as well as your body. The most powerful tool that you have in your possession is your mind. Yes, each person is different and yes, it is harder for some people than other people. So, don't worry about them, focus on yourself. Do what you need to do to stay focused on your fitness and health goals.
