We looked a little bit tired in the beginning and they jumped on us immediately. They were energized tonight,” Black told reporters after the Aces leveled the series following a 100-95 win at Mall of Asia Arena.The Bolts, whose seven game-winning streak was snapped, were a step slow especially in the third quarter where the Aces extended their lead to 20, 66-46, midway through the period.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissDespite the defeat, Black still commended his players for their resiliency as they nearly stole the game in the end.A 3-pointer by Chris Newsome pulled the Bolts within one, 96-95, with 14.5 seconds remaining.

WE started playing a little bit better, our outside shots started to fall and our defense started to click a little bit, but it was just a little bit too late,” Black said.“That’s the part I’m happiest about. The players did not give up. They could’ve when we were down by 20. They didn’t give up, they kept fighting and gave themselves a chance to win the basketball game. Maybe a few breaks down the stretch might have helped us a little but I’m happy with the effort in the second half.”Game 3 is on Thursday night at Cuneta Astrodome with Black hoping Meralco will be able to at least match Alaska’s energy.“My thoughts right now is that I just wanna find a way to give my players a little bit of rest so they can comeback and be energized and have their legs. They didn’t have their legs tonight,” he said.“I think tonight AD (Durham) had nine rebounds which was way below his average so I just have to find a way to keep him fresh so that when we play them in the next game in Game 3 he’ll have a little bit more energy and we play our regular game. whether it’s close down the stretch.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Meralco head coach Norman Black thinks the Bolts shot themselves in the foot after coming out slow in a loss to Alaska in Game 2 of their 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals series on Tuesday.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: HOW TO STICK TO YOUR RESOLUTIONS

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: We are in week 3 of 2015.By now, the New Year’s resolutions are in full swing.Gyms will be buzzing with people who are fully committed to making this year the year they absolutely achieve their goals. It is also around the 3rd week of the year that the shine starts to come off of the good intentions that some people had for their goals.You will naturally have a bit of a fall off around this time and it increases every week until only the most dedicated are left.So why is it that only 8% of people who make resolutions are able to stick to them?We have to look at the way people are setting out goals for themselves. When you are setting out and making your goals, you can’t just concentrate on what you want.If you only concentrate on what you want, you might never actually get started.Your goal could seem too big.You could find reasons as to why you wouldn’t be able to achieve them and if you managed to achieve them, you might not be able to keep them, so it’s probably best not to even start.Sound familiar? So what can we do?What is it that we have to change in order to keep on track with our goals?We have to change the way we plan out our goals.We have to stop always looking at what we want and start setting out steps to help us actually get what we want. It is easy to say ‘I want to lose 10lbs’, but if all you do is say I want, and you never change anything in order to get there, nothing will change. 

Instead of saying I WANT, ask yourself;WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS? 

WHAT DO I HAVE TO CHANGE IN MY LIFE TO REACH MY GOAL?It doesn’t have to be major changes either.Andrea Bonior, Ph.D., a psychologist in private practice in Washington, DC, and author of the “Baggage Check” column for the Washington Post Express says;“Since your supply of self-control is finite, make resolutions that require small acts of will, not weeks of vigilance.”‘Lose 10 pounds’ sounds specific, but it’s less likely to work than behavioural goals like
’This week I’ll try to go to the gym three times, take the stairs at work at least twice, and bring a healthy lunch every day,’ “.“You’ll feel good when you accomplish each goal, and your success will help bolster your resolve: The better you are at making small changes, the easier it will be for you to keep going.”

Small steps like these are a great way to self-motivate and these small goals can help you reach your major ones.When choosing your goals, try not to pick too many.Doing this can quite often dilute your motivation and leave you goalless come February.“Once you understand that you have only a limited amount of willpower, it’s easy to understand why multiple resolutions aren’t likely to work”, says Ian Newby-Clark, Ph.D., a psychologist at the University of Guelph in Canada.Most resolutions actually require many behaviour changes. Sure, some are straightforward, like remembering to take a calcium pill every day — but a successful weight-loss program, for example, calls for more than just a decision to eat less.You have to shop and cook differently, start or ramp up an exercise routine, maybe even ditch certain social or family events. “Thinking through these sub strategies boosts success rates,” says Newby-Clark.”The last tip I’ll leave you with when trying to stick to your resolutions is this;Avoid making 100% resolutions.Don’t say to yourself that you are ‘giving up everything and that’s final.’Let’s face it it’s never going to work.Instead aim for 90%, this will allow for some leeway if you get stuck or caught out or end up at a family event.One meal never ruined anyone’s goals.
