If you’re like most people then reading this subject line was a little uncomfortable and you may have even experienced a bit of anxiety.
Make a decision? Do I have to?
We are forced to make decisions every day, but that doesn’t make it any easier.
When you stop to think about it, your life is the sum total of all the decisions that you’ve ever made up to this point. Your health, your mindset, your finances are all an outcome of the decisions you’ve made.
Some decisions are so small that they seem insignificant…
…and other decisions weigh on you for days because you know that the outcome will change the course of your life.
You’ll wade through a myriad of trivial decisions today – ranging from the flavor of your coffee, to the gas you put into your car, to the food you put into your body. It’s easy to be fooled into believing that these have no real impact on the big picture – – but they do.
You’ll shift over to automatic while making your habitual decisions today – these ones no longer require a second thought since your preferences are defaulted.
The time you wake up each morning, the way you take your eggs, the frequency in which you exercise. Your habitual decisions play a huge part in determining major factors in your life, and these ones aren’t always easy to modify once the habit is in place.
We’re always making decisions…
Big ones like “should you marry him/her”, “should you have another child”, “Should you stick it out another year at that job”? Life changing decisions are forks in the road that demand your full attention and analysis.
There’s a famous quote from General Norman Schwartzkopf: “A bad decision is better than no decision” which makes sense when you realize that indecision is a decision. It’s best to simply bite the bullet, choose a side, and stick with it (unless you realize you made the wrong decision lol).
You make a life changing decision when you chose to get fit.
I want to help you with that…
I want to help you reach your goal in a big way.
And the fastest way I know for reaching a fitness goal is to begin a challenging and consistent exercise program, like the ones that I offer to my clients.
And that leads us to the decision that I want you to make today…
Will you reply to this email, call, or come in to sign up for my life-changing fitness program?

What you need
1 1/2 pounds turkey breast, de-boned, trimmed of skin and cut into thin strips
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup almond meal (more if needed)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of salt (optional)
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
1. In a food processor, blend the turkey strips until ground. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended. Pre-heat your grill or grill pan.
2. Lightly grease your hands, then press the meat into the wooden skewers until it covers about 3-4 inches in an elongated meatball shape. If the meat is not sticking then add some more almond meal.
3. Grill for about 8 minutes per side.

Never, ever trust the claims on the front of a food package. Claims like: heart healthy, whole grains, or fiber-filled are often smoke and mirrors to prevent you from reading the actual ingredient list.
The real truth about a packaged food item is hidden in the ingredient list on the BACK label, not in the bold claims on the front.
Scan that ingredient list for high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar, hydrogenated or partially-hydrogenated oils – if the food contains these items then put it back and choose something healthier.
