Life is built up by the sacrifice of the individual to the whole. Each cell in the living body must sacrifice itself to the perfection of the whole; when it is otherwise, disease and death enforce the lesson-
One of the main themes this year at CultFit has been: Living in the present moment. Each day, when we share a thought with you … We do so with no expectations. If you have been fortunate enough to travel around the world or surprisingly been called at work by your kids principle?!? The joy of traveling to faraway and exotic lands is bundled craftily with the excitement of not knowing what to expect. Kinda like driving to school …
“What in the hell did that little turd do this time!” <— Driving to school will never be the same.
We are burdened at times by our obsessive compulsive drive towards goals and plans. Another focus here is: Keeping a present state of mind. Plans and goals, be they short-term or long-term, are fine as long as we practice the pivotal Buddhist idea of non-attachment (digest this for a minute peeps).
Our main issue with goals is that in today’s hyper-media-society one becomes obsessed with the “goal“. However the real freedom is the realization that there are no goals, there is only the Now.
What happens when we wait for a tomorrow that never comes? All of us have uttered these very words: The weather today blows! I’ll wait to run tomorrow. F**K this sh!t!!! You want me to drive to gym when it’s freezing outside? Back to bed for me ...
We all have expectations to fulfill the very goals we honestly set (on a good – convenient day), the night before, when it’s warm and the bottle of Jam Jar has not been opened. The thing is peeps: YOU and the people around YOU will suffer when the goals you set fail to come to fruition.
A show of hands from the caring Husbands and boyfriends reading today?!? Anyone … Hello?!?

Sex is dirty only if it’s done right-
**We are purposely skimming the surface of this topic. If you want the science behind these simple ideas? You are completely in the wrong place.**
Quick note: When our bodies hurt, we don’t feel particularly Sexy and the last thing we want is further discomfort. Not only for ourselves but for our partner as well. Few things in life are worse than having a mind that is ready to experiment and play … With a body that is frail and subject to break at any moment. So how do we overlook our pain(s) for the promise of a fun-filled evening, breakfast, second breakfast, lunch?!?
“Runner High” … We have all heard of this euphoric state and the pure pleasure many feel when they gently enter into it. Take a deep breath and revel in the comfort that you do not have to run a marathon, 5k, Mud-Run (these are pleasurable and erotic for different reasons …) or be a serious athlete to benefit from a “Runner High“. When we feel calm and blissful after a hearty laugh or many other pleasant experiences we passionately enjoy? Magical little chemicals are at work in our bodies giving us our high.
If you find yourself in a loving relationship, using the connection you have as a source of comfort will slowly melt the pain away. If you are on your own, it’s time to get creative!
What are some ways we can get creative to help melt our pains away? We’ll toss in a few to get the discussion started:
– Leave a love note on the bathroom mirror for your special someone to see in the morning (Dirty – Erotic … They all work).
– Go to a mushy movie early one evening or pull one up on Netflix (Hugh Grant, Collin Farrell), get comfy and proceed to touch and kiss passionately. Get lost in one another and forget about the horrid movie in the first place.

Laughter and orgasm are great bedfellows-
Do you fall into the category of being too refined? Hopelessly, an old school romantic? A little uptight and easily taken aback? Today’s post treads some murky water … If you are easily offended and or have virgin ears/eyes? Look away, right about now!

Say hello to Shame and Judgement.
One parallel that we like to draw between living a Healthy Life and our own Sexuality … Is what do we do when we strip away the fear of being Shamed and Judged? What is the motivating factor when you are completely laid bare and exposed to the world? For many of us the only reason we work out in the first place is to not be Shamed and Judged, to fit perfectly in the mold society has placed us in. This train of thought also applies to our sex lives: To be fully open to your partner you need to strip away the fear that holds us back and be completely open with one another.
What we propose to you is to clear the space in your life to learn your own Sexual voice, your own Health and Fitness voice. Open your mind to how you comprehend, convey and enjoy your sexuality. By opening your sexual expression with a loved one … Let’s just say this is a classic example of a Win – Win situation.
Give up sitting dutifully at your desk. Leave
your house or apartment. Go out into the world.
It’s all right to carry a notebook but a cheap
one is best, with pages the color of weak tea
and on the front a kitten or a space ship.
Avoid any enclosed space where more than
three people are wearing turtlenecks. Beware
any snow-covered chalet with deer tracks
across the muffled tennis courts.
Not surprisingly, libraries are a good place to write.
And the perfect place in a library is near an aisle
where a child a year or two old is playing as his
mother browses the ranks of the dead.
Often he will pull books from the bottom shelf.
The title, the author’s name, the brooding photo
on the flap mean nothing. Red book on black, gray
book on brown, he builds a tower. And the higher
it gets, the wider he grins.
You who asked for advice, listen: When the tower
falls, be like that child. Laugh so loud everybody
in the world frowns and says, “Shhhh.”
Then start again.

With sex, just like working out … Anything is possible. You are afforded the opportunity to be anything you want … ENJOY!!!
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience-
It’s fair to say that on any given day we spew a fair amount of rubbish at you while reading these dreadful posts. Seriously?!? How masculine and tough are words like: Forgiveness, Patience, Mindfulness, Meaningful and Purpose? These timid words would be slashed to a bloody pulp during a knife fight with: Extreme, ELITE, Warrior, Tough and OMG!
When was the last time you saw some bro wearing an Affliction-T with “Purpose” written on it?!? Like never …
The true mark of a spouse/friend/soul mate/bro is the keen ability to see the future, beyond our present circumstance. Each and every day we are bombarded by what is going on around us.
If only turning away and ignoring all these stimuli were so easy. We are so immersed in the present, filled to the brim with anxiety, that we simply fail to choose our course of action. Not only for today but for tomorrow as well.
Breaking News: Your happiness is a choice that you make.
Peeps (even if you are in Manitoba), take a gander around you. Not later, right now! Let go of the world around and just “Be Yourself” in this moment (reading CultFit … JaJa pretty sad). Sit on the edge of the tub, look in the mirror and feel this brilliant, simple moment.
A nice Trail Run/Walk followed by:
The Dreaded CultFit Plank Series … All of our plank movements start from standing, hinge – walk out.
High Push Up Plank, Low Push Up Plank, Rotating Side Plank (each arm), Heart Beat Walk (50 pumps), Reverse Plank, Handstand Hold.
30 minutes focusing on pure body control and breathing (Key Word: Patience). Form, Flow, Grace!
Today is the day, ENJOY!!!
