Almost Impossible to Fail

When beginning some new undertaking, I ask myself: what would I have to do for it to be nearly impossible to fail. Certainty of success is an illusion, but by for any given goal it's possible to come up with some process that would nearly guarantee success.

For example: when starting SETT, I asked myself this question. I thought that there were lots of ways that blogging could be improved, but decided that if we could build something that got people more comments and more subscribers, we would be successful. Further, I figured that although I'm not the best programmer in the world, if I just worked every single day as hard as I could, I could eventually build something that would get results like that.

Sure enough, two years of hard work later, we have built a blogging platform that demonstrably gets people more subcribers and more comments. Whether we'll be ultimately successful or not is still in the air, but things are looking good and we continue to work very hard.

What would it take to make weight loss nearly impossible to fail at? Remove all unhealthy foods from your house, commit to only eating at home, plan every meal in advance, and make sure that you have a caloric deficit made up of only high quality foods. If you follow that protocol, it is impossible not to lose weight.

Can matcha tea help make me a kinder and skinnier mom?

Ok, I admit it. I love Dr. Oz and watch the Dr. Oz show regularly:-) Every now and then, I hear about something that seems worth trying.

On the episode that aired 1/15/14, I saw the segment about matcha tea. Dr. Oz touted it as a fat blocker, immune enhancer, and anxiety-reliever.

If you have been reading my blog, you know that I'm sharing my personal journey with weight loss. So, you might think I was interested in matcha for it's fat blocking properties.

You'd be partially correct!
