HELP Episode 8: Mind Games

November and Thanksgiving have come and gone!  Can you believe it?  Where did the time go?  We had a lot of stuff going on in November including the election, Thanksgiving and some major life events.  After taking the month of November off, I am back for a "Just Tom" Healthy Lifestyle Podcast.  I have to admit that we all play mind games with the holidays, and as I post this podcast, I can probably record a Part 2 to this podcast for surviving the madness and family mind games that rear their heads during the holidays.


I discussed the following topics in this episode:
November Madness in the World
Mind Games for Dealing with Chaos
Update about Drew Sample
Thanksgiving Reflections
Visiting a Homestead
Spending Time with Family and Relatives
Eating and Drinking During the Holidays
New Plan and Getting Back to the Gym and Pool

During the podcast, I discussed a few different sites, podcasts, videos and blogs.  The following is a list of those links:

Episode 7 of the HELP Podcast - Drew and I interview Kevin Geary about what we are doing and about the three pillars to healthy living: Eat, Move and Live
Thanksgiving Reflections - I wrote a post about Thanksgiving and some other thoughts I had about the blog and podcast
