My Philosophy:

Everything is interconnected and must remain in balance. The existence of dichotomies themselves are not the problem. The problem lies when one side overwhelms the other. It is important to remain balanced in all areas of life because inevitably, imbalance leads to the entire structure crumbling down.

An Aspen (tree) grove looks like many separate trees on the surface, but they actually all belong to one organism underground with replicate genetic codes. The root system may lie dormant for years before the conditions above ground such as climate, ample sunlight, and precipitation permit the trees to grow. Once the conditions are right, an entire forest may begin to appear above ground...Fitness and body transformation goals are no different. It takes time to become exceptionally healthy, achieve all of your fitness goals and surpass limits you previously thought impossible. I am just one piece of the puzzle you need to construct in order to become healthy and then maintain the vitality for the rest of your life. Become an alchemist. The hard work and sacrifice it takes to achieve such a venture are more onerous than simply losing weight, but infinitely more rewarding.
