“I want you to take a moment here and write down all the problems that are plaguing you at this moment, from big to small. Now ask yourself what you contributed in creating your current situation. Did the professor fail you because you never went to class? Did your boss yell at you because you were on YouTube instead of working?” ― Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“You’ve already been at the bottom. Why don’t you go for the top?” ― Jillian Michaels

“I can always use a good chest fly in my life” ― Jillian Michaels
“Here’s the thing, though: forgiving the asshole isn’t for their well-being, it’s for yours. If you can’t forgive the things that have been done to you—as a kid, as an adult, whenever—then you won’t be able to move on with your life. Forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting. Nor does it have to mean letting the person back into your life to hurt you again. It simply means healing the hurt that’s been done to you and continuing to pursue a prosperous, meaning-filled life.” ― Jillian Michaels, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life
“Ask yourself this: How much deprivation, how much self-effacement must you suffer through before you act on your desire for meaning and fulfillment? Before it’s your turn to thrive in your life, instead of barely surviving it? Some people live their dreams. Why not you?” ― Jillian Michaels
“Selfish isn't a dirty word. It means we take care of ourselves and are able to give back.” ― Jillian Michaels
I have received no assurance that anything we can do will eradicate suffering. I think the best results are obtained by people who work quietly away at limited objectives, such as the abolition of the slave trade, or prison reform, or factory acts, or tuberculosis, not by those who think they can achieve universal justice, or health, or peace. I think the art of life consists in tackling each immediate evil as well as we can. — C.S. Lewis (The Weight of Glory)
The various features and aspects of human life, such as longevity, good health, success, happiness, and so forth, which we consider desirable, are all dependent on kindness and a good heart. — Dalai Lama XIV
True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost. — Charles Caleb Colton
The trouble is that when we get around to solutions, it always seems to come down to Prozac. Or Zoloft. Or Paxil. Deep clinical depression is a disease, one that not only can, but probably should, be treated with drugs. But a low-grade terminal anomie, a sense of alienation or disgust and detachment, the collective horror at a world that seems to have gone so very wrong, is not a job for antidepressants. The trouble is, the big-picture problems that have so many people down are more or less insoluble: As long as people can get divorced they will get divorced; America=s shrinking economy is not reversible; there is no cure for AIDS. So it starts to seem fairly reasonable to anesthetize ourselves in the best possible way. I would like so much to say that Prozac is preventing many people who are not clinically depressed from finding real antidotes to what Hillary Clinton refers to as 'a sleeping sickness of the soul,' but what exactly would those solutions be? I mean, universal health care coverage and a national service draft would be nice, but neither one is going to save us from ourselves. Just as our parents quieted us when we were noisy by putting us in front of the television set, maybe we're now learning to quiet our own adult noise with Prozac. — Elizabeth Wurtzel (Prozac Nation)
When someone works for less pay than she can live on — when, for example, she goes hungry so that you can eat more cheaply and conveniently — then she has made a great sacrifice for you, she has made you a gift of some part of her abilities, her health, and her life. The 'working poor,' as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else. — Barbara Ehrenreich (Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America)
Wash your car: Your car needs washing on a regular basis to keep in clean. To lose weight, instead of taking it to car washing stations, you should wash it yourself, so that you can get more exercise. Make sure to do it properly, so that you can lose weight and have a shiny vehicle as well.
Drink cold water: When you are thirsty, you should drink an ice cold glass of water. Cold water can actually boost up your body’s metabolic rate.

Omega 3-fatty acid: is beneficial in getting rid of cholesterol but for those who do not like to eat oily fish can substitute Flaxseeds instead. It is a composed of Omega 3 fatty an acid which is available in different nutrition store. You can take this once a week as your food supplement.
If you can’t avoid drinking beverages, choose those that contain less sugar: Drinking beverages is something that you need to avoid in order to lose weight. However, if you simply need to have some, then choose those that have lower sugar and calorie content. Aside from that, put lots of ice cubes into the drinks, so that they would become diluted with water.
Losing weight should be done in a healthy way: In losing weight, you should always keep in mind that you are doing it to become healthier. Although losing weight to lots of people is healthy, doing it in an excessive manner can also result to something negative. Thus, when you choose a diet, make sure that it can provide you with the nutrients your body needs. Aside from that, you should never overwork yourself.
Never skip meals: Skipping meals is the last thing you want to do if you want to lose weight. Doing it can actually make you gain weight, instead of losing some, since it can trigger your body to lower down your metabolism. Aside from that, it can also prompt your body to save its reserve energy. Moreover, skipping meals can also trigger binge eating.
Explore other forms of exercises: After doing the same kinds of workout routines for a certain period of time, it can become boring to you. Thus, it is best to explore other forms of it, so that you can get rid or prevent boredom. Try to check other forms of exercises through exercise videos on the internet if you want to, so that you can simply follow the instructions given.
