Make the Most of Your Life CPM’ers

Make the Most of Your Life CPM’ers

A good family friend of mine passed away from cancer recently. He was 58 years old (too young to die) and left 4 children behind. I feel when someone passes away it makes you reflect on your own life. You start to reminisce about the memories shared and look ahead to what the future holds. You start to ask yourself the questions,

“How much life do we have left to live?”

“Are we doing what we want if we knew tomorrow was our last?”

These are always hard deep questions to ask one’s self, and sometimes the answers are just as complex! If […] Read more

Stop Proving and Start Living CPM …

Stop Proving and Start Living CPM …

I am in a bible study and the book that we are working on is called “Proven” by Jennie Allen ….

It is a great study that digs deep into why we don’t need to “Prove” anything to anyone, and how living in “prove” mode is detrimental to your health and wellness.

This bible study has been very life altering for me. My whole life I have made my drive within about proving to others, my family, friends etc how hardworking I am. How in shape I am in, how determined I am ..

and It’s exhausting physically and mentally!

Stop living in […] Read more

New Month …. New Goals …

It’s that wonderful time again … a new month which equals a good time to check – in with my goals, reevaluate them, and put new ones in place….

I found this great quote that reads:

“A leader, once convinced a particular course of action is the right one, must have the determination to stick with it and be undaunted when the going gets rough.”

Quote by: Ronald Reagan

When I went to the Ronald Reagan museum, I got to witness all the amazing accomplishments that one extraordinary man achieved in his lifetime.

He was an athlete, college graduate, actor, […] Read more

CPM Easter Fun…

CPM Easter Fun…

Easter is all about family, food, and faith. With all these components surrounding this blessed holiday how can we put the “Fun” and “Fit” into it as well?

A favorite past time is decorating eggs and hiding them .. So lets take Easter Egg Hunts and Easter Baskets to the next level.

#1 Make A Workout Game Out of the Hunt:

Grab a dozen or more plastic eggs (purchase the ones that separate into two) and on small sheets of colored or plain paper write fun workout moves to do when the egg gets open.

For Example in each egg:

10 squats

5 pushups

10 situps

10 […] Read more

Is It Luck or Determination CPM?

Is It Luck or Determination CPM?

I find myself fascinated with “why” people are in the positions they are in. For example, was Kobe Bryant born with this “God-Given” talent or did he work his butt off day in and day out to become KOBE….?

Malcolm Gladwell wrote a great Book in 2008 with a theory that you can become a master at anything by doing it for 10,000 hours.

Is this true? Could I play at the level of Kobe by playing basketball for 10,000 hours… or would I even want to?

Do movie stars like Julia Roberts or George Clooney get “lucky” or do they just out […] Read more
