Life+ work + more Life= What the F**K happened to ME!

The unpredictable journey of life can physically manifest itself with the scale slowly creeping into higher and nerve tensing numbers, energy evaporated, high-stress levels, and feeling like a prisoner in your own body.

It’s not uncommon for you to not recognize yourself, life is hard, and we have to learn how to manage it and explore healthy outlets during rough times, otherwise we would keep losing like the Jets- don’t be the Jets.

Here are the top 3 things you can implement in your lifestyle TODAY to feel and see changes mentally and physically while working a busy schedule.

  1. Structured Days
  2. Guidance
  3. Committed Actions

First, I need to ask you for a favor. I want you to believe that you can achieve the goals you want to achieve. I know it sounds cliche, maybe even corny. But there is no difference between the C student and the A student. It is just one believed, practiced, and showed up while the other student had good intention but did not believe these goals were achievable.

(for the record, I started my college career as a C, but graduated on the Dean’s List)


My definition of productivity is the quality of work you complete in the least amount of time. For example: when I use to tell my parents that “I’m studying all day, but not passing,” or when a client says “ I have been working for a month straight and still have not lost any weight,” there is a question of the quality of work you’re completing.

This was a paramount discovery for me, especially after I read Craig Ballantyne’s book, The Perfect Day Formula, where he spoke about “quiet” and “uninterrupted work. These quiet hours, when all the electronics were turned off, I was basically locked in my room with no distraction and my to-do list, the quality of my work increased. This simply means that I got more work completed in LESS TIME.

I often reminisce back in 2009 when I use to receive my Chemistry Test, and I thought my teacher spilled pasta sauce across my paper after he gave it back. See, even though I was “studying” for 8 hours, my frequent social media breaks, constantly texting my crush, and working for 5 strong minutes then stopping, prolonged everything. The pages were not moving, but the time most certainly was. “What the F**K happened?” before I knew it, the test came and with no surprise, a failing grade.

The more you focus on your tasks and perform daily habits that keep you on track, the more accomplished you will be. Imagine feeling like you’re moving closer to your goals on a daily basis, it’s called progression.

Takeaway: Have uninterrupted work hours. This will improve your quality of work, and you will get more done in less amount of time and feel productive.


Let’s face it, we don’t know everything. There are people out there who can help you get to your goals faster than you can with less confusion and will ultimately save you time, as well as money.

As a busy working professional, time is your most valuable. If you have no clue on how to lose weight and build lean muscle, having a GPS or mentor will not only ensure your success but will also keep you safe and encouraged. Yes, I’m aware of the age we live in, everything is on the internet; cleanses, diets, exercises, etc.; there is plenty of information.

The question that arises for me is, why haven’t you achieved your weight loss goals? You’re not alone, most of America is obese (about 2 out of every 3), and it’s the younger population- who have the most access to information.

Indeed, information is at our fingertips, but we are living in the most unhealthy time in America. My answer: information does not change situations, it raises awareness, accountability while daily actions spark change. Assuming the information is solid (anti-Wikipedia), the person who wrote the information or filmed the exercise video is discussing their experience; so this means it worked for them, not necessarily that it will work for you. Basically, it shows how two people can do the same exact thing and have two different outcomes. You are your own entity, you :).

Working with a Mentor or having a product will get you to your destination faster. Remember, time is your most important factor, so why waste it, especially if there are people who are more than qualified to help you get the results you want?

Use the internet and live events to seek out a mentor, though I personally feel like live events are the best option (that’s how I found my mentor, John Romaniello).

The fastest way from point A to B is a straight line. The coach will provide the clear-cut path for you. Make sure you have a coach who you feel personally connected with.

Our online program has a “get to know you process” before we turn you into a FAT- BURNING MACHINE (you can find more about here).

Our Takeaways: Hiring someone who has taken people to the results you want will save you time, money and frustration (which is why most people quit programs).


Like any successful relationship, commitment is the foundation. When you think of commitment, what do you think of?

My personal example of commitment would be anyone who has been married for over 25 years, basically the baby boomers. My grandparents were married for over 50 years. Needless to say, it was a huge commitment, and it took tons of grit, love, understanding, patience to have that successful journey (this is all assumptive, of course, since I’m a single dude).

I want you to look at your goals like they’re your soulmate. For better or for worse, you will show up on the bad days, just like the good days. If you have ever had a weight loss journey, to say it’s emotional is undercutting it. There will be tears of joy and frustrations. If you want an appetizer of what that’s like for some exposure therapy, you can turn on your TV during football season and view a New York Jet football game, trust me you won’t be disappointed.

Achieving any goals in life will test you, try your will. You have to ask yourself: How bad DO I REALLY WANT THIS?  The ball is in your court. You have to commit, it won’t be easy, but like any long-term relationship, you have to commit, show up every day, be patient, have grit and get to work.

I’m not saying it’s impossible for you to lose the weight, but it will require work.

Takeaway: Stay in committed action, your mind and surroundings will test you. Don’t eat the doughnut Roger is bringing in for breakfast, oh, and don’t watch the Jets.
