“Do you realize that there is nothing in our genes that tells us when to die? There are genetic codes that tell us how to grow, how to breathe, and how to sleep, but NOTHING that tells us to die. So why do we? Because we literally rust and decay our bodies from the inside out with poor food and lifestyle choices.” ― Jillian Michaels, Master Your Metabolism: The 3 Diet Secrets to Naturally Balancing Your Hormones for a Hot and Healthy Body!

“You know when transformation happens? Right now. It’s a present activity. Who is the new you? Show me the new you.” ― Jillian Michaels
“Pick someone in your life you admire. Your grandfather, an old college professor, a friend—it doesn’t matter who, as long as you have total respect for them and you admire their life or accomplishments. Then when you’re about to take a leap, visualize this person at your side, rooting for you, telling you how much they believe in you. Try it when you ask for a raise, or ask someone on a date, or go for a bank loan to start your small business, or do anything scary that takes you outside your comfort zone. We all need a little encouragement and support sometimes.” ― Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Something horrible may have happened to you, but you always have a choice in how you respond to it. You have the “Why does bad stuff always happen to me? I’m never going to find happiness” option, and the “This sucks but I’m going to learn and evolve from it, examine what role I played in it, and ultimately it will help me become the person I’m supposed to be” option.” ― Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Once you see how strong you are physically, it transcends into all other facets of your life.” ― Jillian Michaels
Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends, and integrity. And you're keeping all of them in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls...are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered. — James Patterson (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas)
Good morning, good morning, good morning, Loki chirped, wheeling in a table covered with silver domes.What are you doing? I asked, squinting at him. He'd pulled up the shades. I was tired a hell, and I was not happy. I thought you two lovebirds would like breakfast, Loki said. So I had the chef whip you up something fantastic. As he set up the table in the sitting area, he looked over at us. Although you two are sleeping awfully far apart for newly weds.Oh my god. I groaned and pulled the covers over my head.You know, I think you're being a dick, Tove told him as he got out of bed. But I'm starving. So I'm willing to overlook it. This time.A dick? Loki pretended to be offended. I'm merely worried about your health. If your bodies aren't used to strenous activities, like a long night of love making, you could waste away if you don't get plenty of protein and rehydrate. I'm concerned for you.Yes we both believe that's why you're here, Tove said sarcastically and took a glass of orange juice that Loki had just poured for him.What about you princess? Loki's gaze cut to me as he filled another glass.I'm not hungry.I sighed and sat up.Oh really? Loki arched an eyebrow. Does that mean that last night-It means last night is none of your business, I snapped. — Amanda Hocking (Ascend (Trylle Trilogy, #3))
The girls in California were probably prettier in a standard sense than the New York girls--blonder and in better health, I guess; but I still preferred the way the girls in New York looked--stranger and more neurotic (a girl always looked more beautiful and fragile when she was about to have a nervous breakdown). — Andy Warhol (POPism: The Warhol Sixties)
Surgeons can cut out everything except cause. — Herbert M. Shelton
I say, thirteen is too many dogs for good mental health. Five is pretty much the limit. More than five dogs and you forfeit your right to call yourself entirely sane.Even if the dogs are small. — E.

Avoid salt as much as you can: Eating foods that are high in salt content is not a good idea if you want to lose weight. This is because salt can facilitate water retention in your body, as well as bloating. In addition, it can also put you at risk to high blood pressure and certain heart diseases.
Warm up before starting your workout routine: Warming up prior to starting your workout routine would give you lots of benefits. Aside from preventing certain injuries, it can also ensure that your muscles are loosened up properly. Because of that, you would be able to perform the routines the right way, and benefit from them.
Consider Black Cohosh: Evidence is mixed but several studies have found that women who take the herb black cohosh during menopause may experience fewer and milder hot flashes. Talk to your doctor about whether it's right for you; if so choose a well-studied brand such as Remifemin.
Get yourself a pet dog: When you go and visit the park, take a look around you, and you will see people with their pets. One of the things that you can observe is that, most pet owners are not fat. This is because their pets can increase their daily physical activities, when they walk them around the neighborhood each day. Aside from that, if you have a pet, you can play with him all day, without realizing that you are already burning calories.
Be conscious of the negative effects of staying late at nights: When you stay late at nights quite often, it can expose you to lots of negative effects, which can make you gain more weight. Some of these would include lowering down your metabolism, becoming sleepy the next day, triggering binge eating, and many more.
Chew your foods properly: When you eat, it is best that you chew your foods thoroughly. This can ensure proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients in your body. Aside from that, it can also make you eat slower than usual, which is a good thing. Chew your foods as much as you can, to achieve your goals soon.
Don’t go with diet programs that are too restrictive: When it comes to choosing your diet programs, it is best not to go with those that are too restrictive. This is because, such kinds of programs can prevent your body from absorbing nutrients that it needs. When that happens, your body could go on a survival mode, in which it would try to save all its stored fats and calories, and slow down your metabolic rate.
