The Weekend is Here

party time weekend


Whatever you do is your choice. Go for a walk or run. Do some yoga. Hang out with friends. Share a meal.

On the weekends, there’s no boss to tell you what to do.

But when there’s no boss around, most of us tend to hang loose a little too much. All the good done during the week can be erased in just two days of short term gratification.

So for these next two days, just remember, what you do today and tomorrow counts toward your long term hopes and dreams.

Take a step forward.

Be the boss.

Your question of the day: Do you set forward or backwards on the weekends?

Live Awesome!

P.S. You can step forward by watching this here.

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    Yes, good ideas. Although I am my own boss in the week, due to free lancing, I don’t put my alarm on, only if I have to travel afar to see clients, so weekend is the same.

    This weekend though, I am working on a court report which needs to be in on Monday. Next Friday I have a prison visit, with another weekend report!

    So my ‘weekend’ can be in the week sometimes.

    Soon, I hope to be flying Stateside (Portland, Maine to see our new family baby daughter. All very exciting!

    We brought home a new kitty this week so today we are getting her settled in. We both still work 40 hour weeks so today we did yard work, house work, and since I am feeling quilty about eating a dutch chocolate ice cream cup while reading your article, I will later have some fresh green juice and do some yoga. lol Then an early light dinner and rest on the couch with a movie. Tomorrow we’re going with our son and his wife to the Cowboy Game. That will be fun. At least one or two weekends of the month we go camping at area State Parks or private campgrounds and love to kayak, bike a little, hike, or just sit and watch the birds. Other weekends we babysit the grandkids or go to their birthday parties. We have number 9 due in December.

    Thanks Kev,

    The dogs get a longer more relaxed walk around a lovely lake that I drive to instead of a rushed walk after work up the street past houses and I get to have lunch with my elderly mother(84yrs) who wont be around forever so I try to make the most of family time.

    Have a great weekend with your family.

    I’m going to drink luscious green smoothies, exercise and putz in our vegetable garden and then do nothing at all!

    I live in Munich and I’m going to Oktoberfest. I feel good about this and have resolved to give up beer only after this (I don’t really care for German beer anyway). Since I hardly drink it won’t be a problem, but very much looking forward to the fest. It’s not green, and it’s not healthy, but it is stress free.

    Trying to learn how to do absolutely nothing fr a whole day occasionally and not be guilty. It is cathartic.

    I went to an Alanon meeting this morning where I showed up early to make the coffee and set up things. Enjoyed such wonderful insight as people shared their recovery. Then visited with a friend that was having some problems. we both had a great talk. Then I went down to the port and took a brisk 20 minute walk (about one mile.) Bought a bunch of vegis at the Farmers’ market..Broccoli rab, tiny yellow cherry tomatoes, and little cucumbers. Ate them with a friend which I went to visit. Yum! Came home to do some laundry and am getting rid of some old clothes that are a little too big. I sure don’t ever want to fit into them again. Now answering some emails when the computer went crazy and erased the one I was working on. Must be that I wasn’t supposed to send it, for some reason. Then decided to come over here and talk with my friend, Kevin. Hi, Kev. Now I need to fold the towels and get the next load out and get it folded. Tomorrow, I plan to walk one mile in the am and one in the afternoon. I plan to put on some clothes that fit…LOL! and paint the bedroom that is primed and ready. It’s just a plan and plans can change, but I’d sure like to do it. I finally got a doctor that would listen to me about my thyroid problems and got me back on the Armour thyroid, so I feel so much better and want to do things. It’s so good to feel better.

    Thank you for talking about getting the right doctor and getting the right testing. You make a difference. Much love, Lynn

    I went to the Health and Wellness show and saw Lindsay Wagner give a talk on what she does at her seminars. She does muscle testing and gives meditation workshops. I found her very interesting and knowledgeable. I had no idea that she was into holistic healing at that level. I’m very glad I went. It was worth it just to see and hear her.

    I also discovered a healthy organic coffee that doesn’t cause dehydration or taste bitter. Great stuff! It’s also processed organically, which is good.

    Tomorrow I’m going to continue working on my book so I can submit it on Wednesday in a contest I entered through HayHouse!

    YOU, Kevin, made me aware that I normally waste my weekends, feeling justified for taking a self indulgent break, but then I thought (smugly) how my weekdays are pretty much spent working at what I love doing, so why not extend the weekend hours of freedom from incoming calls and mail, by spending a couple more networking? As a result, THIS Sunday, I’ve been rewarded by new motivation for a planned fundraiser on Dec. 1st, to benefit a little girl who is having cancer treatment in Birmingham (UK) Children’s Hospital. Anyone want to send $15 to Dance for Life, and sponsor one of the DVDs they are making, to entertain the children undergoing chemotherapy? Thanks for always inspiring me!

    I just had my first weekend without a junk binge in years!
    I work Saturdays, study and right now have a list of unpleasant tasks to take care of but I was so much more able to deal with it after a green smoothie or bean and avocado smash, instead of my usual coffee overload with vegemite toast 🙂
