    By Raphael | In Motivation | on April 30, 2011

    Body image. It can be a pain in the ass.

  • Aging and the Big Fat Lie

    By Raphael | In Fitness, Motivation, Nutrition | on April 8, 2011

    “Most people work at dying. I work at living. It’s a pain in the ass. You have to eat right and exercise. Most people, when they reach a certain age, let down and talk about what they used to do. Well, who gives a damn about what you used to do? It’s what you’re doing […]

  • I Love You! I Hate You!

    By Raphael | In Motivation | on February 14, 2011

    In honor of Valentine’s Day I want to talk about that one bizarre relationship nearly all of us have experienced. It’s brought you pure joy and the most excruciating pain. It’s that quirky love affair we both gravitate towards and yet become paralyzed in when it comes to our ability to process a logical thought. […]

  • It All Starts Here

    By Raphael | In Motivation | on February 2, 2011

    When I first told people that the name of my blog would be The Power of Healing Through Fitness and Nutrition, the one word that everyone zeroed in on was healing.
