510!

Well, good morning strangers and how is everyone this fine Sunday morning? I have certainly been missing a bit here lately but my schedule has been crazy! The truth is that’s still no excuse for not at least checking in and letting you all know how things are going and all. This morning the sun is shining but not too burdensome and the clouds have given enough cover to truly give the day some comfort! I absolutely love days like this because they put my mind at ease and force me to pause and remember how blessed I truly am! I’ve got my coffee with just a splash of sugar-free creamer and nothing else and I’m ready to get started, I hope you have your’s as you read along!

As you all remember I was dealing with a bit of a back problem recently, well I’m happy to report that the pain seems to be completely gone and I’m back feeling great down there.lol. You really don’t appreciate how important movement is until it’s restricted! My workout yesterday was really great because I was fasted, going into my 42nd hour of an extended fast actually but I’ll get to that. I did chest and triceps as well as 30 minutes on the stationary bike and it felt awesome! There are several studies about how much better for the body fasted workouts are than the traditional way and while I’m still developing my take on it I will certainly say this; fasted workouts just feel better to my body. There’s nothing like knowing that your body has nothing to burn but your stored body fat that really gets you motivated to really go hard! The cool thing is I have found that I feel better and have better stamina when I go into a workout with an empty stomach! I highly recommend you try it and see how you feel it may be a game-changer for you! So the other day I was talking about my walks to the park and how I wanted to get more cardio from walking around outside the gym. Recently, I have been doing just that, my fiance’ and I have been going to the park together and walking for certain distances and allowing ourselves to get a feel for how far we can go. My goal as I said before is to gradually increase my speed and distance until I can comfortably walk the 5.7 miles around the entire lake! It’s not super far for most people but if I can do that with my size I should lose tons of fat! lol.

 

My attention to my keto has been razor sharp and I haven’t had even one cheat meal and I have no plans at all of ending this focus any time soon! I’ve been keeping my carbs under 50 and that’s total carbs daily because I don’t subtract fiber for the time being. I have also raised my healthy fat intake to a higher level and that has made all the difference. My green smoothies are back and I have been having at least one large one a day with my 2 meals. I’d say 95% of my carbs come from kale, spinach or romaine lettuce and only the other 5% is made up from other sources such as sausage or low carb dressings and sauces. My first meal is typically around 9 a.m. and my last one is usually no later than 3 p.m. and for some reason, this early meal time works really well for me and I don’t feel as hungry as I have in the past! Tonight I will be making my first attempt at a low carb cauliflower soup that I have been wanting to try for a long time and I will certainly blog about it when I’m done. I have also been drinking some homemade cold brew coffee and I really love the taste and flavor plus it’s an awesome switch from the norm!

 

I recently joined I.D.M. which stands for Intensive Dietary Management and it’s headed by Doctor Jason Fung and Megan Ramos. I have long been a fan of both and I wanted more information on fasting and the use of it for fat loss and long-term health. It’s a free membership trial so I figured I have nothing to lose because if it’s not worth it I’ll simply cancel. What I have found is that the fasting routine that has been working for me is 3 42 hour fasts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays! First off, I never thought I could fast this long at all and some people do a lot longer fasts but I’m finding these are just challenging enough for me! What’s cool is the support groups inside the community are really awesome and knowledgeable, which makes everything so much easier! Yall already know I’m not sponsored by them or anyone else so you can trust that it just may work for you if you need help with your journey, it can’t hurt to check it out.lol. Since doing the fasting I’ve already dropped several pounds of fat, which brings me to my announcement that as of Friday I am officially down to 510! I’m very excited about this because you all know I have been kind of struggling lately with my fat loss slowing down! I’m praying that my consistent fasting along with my low carb eating will continue to provide the desired results!

Please enjoy the extended weekend and keep on keeping it going! I’m proud of all of you for all that you do to better yourselves and I’m always here to help if anyone needs anything!

The Decision to change

Screenshot_20180519-122106.jpgHello and happy Saturday morning to everyone! I have been super busy lately but I wanted to drop in and see how everyone was doing! It’s an overcast day here which is fine because it has been super hot here in Ky. lately! Don’t get me wrong I’ll take this over snow and rain every day in a heartbeat! I pray that you all have been doing well and chasing your dreams. I haven’t posted since Monday and it fills like an eternity for me because I’m used to posting at least 3 days a week. Let’s sit down, grab a fresh cup and let it do what it do!

The gym has been a challenge lately with all the change and trying to figure out a new workout program. When you have gotten into a good rhythm with your workout it’s hard to change it up without feeling a little letdown. I’ve been going heavier weights but I notice I don’t seem to be feeling that sense of satisfaction of knowing that I gave everything I have. When lifting heavy I’m so worried about the proper form that I’m not doing as much because I want to avoid injury. So I’ve decided to just go back to my regular routine and just move up in weight progressively until I get comfy in the higher weights. The other change is I am doing more walking outdoors for stamina. To make it challenging I have been picking a distance and making myself do more and more each week so that I can get used to carrying my weight for long distances. I figure if your my size you should use your weight as an advantage and while I’m walking I know I burn tons more calories than the average person.lol. For now, I’m doing my walks 3 days a week and doing 1 session of cardio in the gym with machines just to change up the pace. I’ve been bringing my camera along and taking pictures so you know I’ll be sharing as I go on more and more walks.

I have been really examining my diet closely as well and I feel like I can do a lot better with limiting my carbs and adding back in more green leafy veggies like back in the day. I’ve been doing Carnivore Keto and while I dig the quicker fat loss I’m finding that my body doesn’t feel as good as when I have my smoothies and salads. So I’m bringing back my smoothies and salads! lol. The grocery haul this week includes my good ole friend cauliflower which I will be using to give my eating routine some more flavor. I also bought some magnesium citrate and some lite salt to make some Ketoaide to help with my fasting. This week I’m thinking of having more chicken and vegetable casseroles and a few vegetarian dishes because I have been eating a good amount of meat but maybe not enough healthy fats. I love delicious food and it certainly helps to have a way of eating that allows you to eat the foods you already love but after a while, the palate wants more and I will give it what it wants! If any of you have been making some great recipes that are low carb I would love to hear from you, I get so many great ideas by following some of you on Instagram!

 

I wanted to end the blog writing about a topic I am passionate about. The decision to change! The journey to health and wellness is certainly a difficult one at times. It will truly test your patience and resolve. You will have days and even weeks when you just don’t have it and you miss a scheduled workout. There will be times when you eat food you know is completely against your diet. Further, there will be mood swings and real-life situations that will have you all in your feelings as it’s called. Just keep in mind that when you have changed those times will not beat you because you will get back. When you have made the decision to change your next meal after 2 weeks of binging will be the healthiest one you could make. When you make the decision to change it is important to remember that you don’t stop being change because you slip up or stumble, no! no! no!  When you make the decision to change, YOU ARE CHANGE! Change takes over and it will bring you back to good, back to where you have decided you want to be, this is precisely why change requires so much because once you have made that decision, you BECOME that CHANGE. 

CHANGE IS INSIDE OF YOU!

YOU ARE CHANGE

I AM CHANGE

WE ARE CHANGE

I believe in each and every one of you just like I believe in me and I know that we all can be who we want to be, how we want to be! Have a great day homies!

Get To Grindin’

Screenshot_20180512-100419.jpg

Well look what day it is today, it’s finally Saturday! The sun is bright, the birds outside got their acts together and have agreed to celebrate this glorious morning with us! We are blessed to see another weekend, another day for that matter, so sit back relax and let’s chat a few about what’s goin’ down!

20180511_232559.jpg

I am Change! Last night because of schedule I had to hit the gym later than usual and I mean it was 11 pm as I walked in the door! We all have scheduling issues so we just have to work around them the best we can and last night was one of those times! What was even crazier is I was still in a rush because I had to pick up my fiance’ so I hit the weights running.lol. Normally, I never lift triceps and biceps together but since my workout wasn’t heavy I decided to change it up and I must say it was really worth it! My muscles were absolutely screaming at me, my skin was raining sweat and I was winded for real! Great workout! My cardio got a boost because I did some walking and exercise in front of the big screen and then I went for a cool and relaxing walk. The Veteran’s Park here in Elizabethtown is truly a beautiful place to take a stroll and the monuments surrounding give you a true sense of pride about the sacrifice that so many have made for us all. Don’t worry homies you know I’m going to include pictures, it was awesome to do some picture taking all in the name of fitness! Ya boi hit his step goal and got more than an hour of activity on my tracker and that’s without the gym visit last night!

I must tell you if you are doing fasting and your schedule allows it then you should try eating your last meal at 2:30 in the afternoon! Not only does it allow me to break my 18 hours fast in time to enjoy my morning coffee but it makes your body feel super lean in the a.m! Now last night I can’t front I was super hungry but that was my fault because I didn’t space my 2 meals out enough, plus I only eat 2 meals and not 3 like most people. Y’all already know I have so much more weight to lose so 18-hour fasting helps fat loss in a way nothing else ever has in my opinion! Yesterday I broke my fast with good ole turkey bacon with melted cheese and my customary large cup of coffee. I basically had a zero carb breakfast and that really helps to get the day started even though I know most have their carbs really early I prefer this route. O.K now I know I eat a lot of baked chicken and if there’s ever an outbreak I’m probably going to be ground zero for those infected because I love it but I made butter baked parmesan chicken and my gosh I found one with this recipe!  I was just playing around and decided to mix some grated parmesan with my melted butter and I drizzled that buttery mix over my chicken and let it coat in the oven and it came out so fire! I mean straight blazing!

Screenshot_20180512-100602.jpg

 

A word about sleep! One of my goals lately has been to really focus on my sleep and get a certain amount no matter what. My fasting time has really helped and I have noticed that my body has really responded and I feel a lot better. For my bigger folks out there sleep is so very important to our overall health because we tend to overlook it but I’m telling you it makes all the difference in the world. Not just getting great sleep but also having a set time to hit the sheets, your body will thank you I’m telling you!

 

I can’t leave without saying thank you so much to those of you who bought my new flash fiction novel! I’m truly blessed to have people around like yourselves that help me reach my true potential! Marcus London: Crime type 1 is an amazing story with a hero who has type 1 diabetes and it brings tears to my eyes to bring awareness and support this movement. My son Marcus who is the inspiration for the series is my hero and the strongest person I have ever been around so again thank you so much! I’m so damn humbled by all of you! Marcus London: Crime type 1

Love Your Damn Self Homie!

Screenshot_20180316-064939.jpg

Well, good morning and happy Friday to everyone! it’s the last day of the work week and all of you have been pushing yourselves very hard and doing all you can! I for one am very proud of you for all that you have been doing. Lately, I have been realizing that all the things people do that I will never see are so important and I know you don’t always get the credit for your greatness so this is me saying: YOU ARE APPRECIATED FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!

 

Today is the last day for me in the gym this week as far as lifting goes. I have been working my butt off this week and I feel like I can honestly say I found a great schedule for myself. It feels amazing to be in a rhythm with my body and my workouts! I’m doing my back/biceps today and then I’ll be doing some stretching to help with my weak flexibility.lol. There is no doubt what so ever that I will be doing a fasted workout today, they just feel better to me and the mental game is the most important. If I think it’s working then I will push harder and be more involved and that’s the win-win! The gym has really been amazing for me these last few months and I’m very thankful to have a place that I go that is just for me. The idea that I am going somewhere that will make me better physically and push myself to get better really makes me feel great about myself and that’s all that really matters. The only way to be of service and to help others is to be in love with yourself so that you can share that love with others!

 

The diet has been going great and my macros have been very good this week! I just wanted to talk about something that has really changed my life. If I have learned anything it’s that the diet and how I eat really makes the whole thing possible. The truth of all of this is in today’s society we all workout more now than we did generations before and yet obesity is more rampant than ever before. The answer is in the foods we eat and the way we treat ourselves away from the gym! Don’t leave your training in the gym or at the park because the bulk of the change comes in the diet! Now I realize this isn’t revolutionary stuff I am writing but if you sit on that for a minute it really will make you change your perspective! There has never been a workout created that will do more for you than rest, nutrition and the study of your own body! You really have to fall in love with learning about your body and what makes it perform at it’s best. If you have problems truly loving yourselves the best place to start is not a relationship or a drink. You can prove to yourself how much you love you by how well you spend time feeding your body positive thoughts and proper nutrition.

 

Notice I didn’t say give your body the right nutrients, I said the proper nutrients for you! The best way for you to eat and treat your body is all up to you and what works best for what you are trying to achieve. It’s funny that we will go to a job and work our butts off for someone else’s dream then go home and give all we have to our kids only to treat ourselves as if we don’t have things we need to achieve for ourselves. It’s absolutely your responsibility to make the decision to achieve as much for your health as you possibly can. I’m not saying you have to be a world-class Olympian or anything, all I’m trying to say is if you have a direction you want your body to go in then damn it go! Spend some time and love the machine you spend all your life in and learn to give it what it needs to be who and what you want to be. Then you have a love that no one can take away from you because they didn’t give it to you, you did, you feel me?

20180316_064850.png

Please be kind to yourself this weekend and do something fun that you enjoy and bring that beautiful smile with you. You have something others around you need and that’s your presence! Be there, give a damn and appreciate your damn self and that’snot a request.lol.20180305_143527.jpg

The picture of the plants like I promised! My poor plants some are doing great but as you can see I had the light too far from them and a few got leggy but I still saved a few.lol.

That’ll Work!

I had to do this really quick tonight because I’m very excited! These damn noodles were really good! Now they are not as good as regular pasta and if you read that anywhere it’s a lie.lol. I must admit that although they are very chewy if you have a great marinade then these noodles will do you well! I’m really happy because I don’t crave pasta all the time but when I do I really go overboard with it. The problem is there are so many damn carbs and sugar in processed pasta that I could easily eat a couple thousand calories when you add in sauce and proteins and oil! What’s blowing me away is they have no calories! I mean I been researching these things for awhile looking for reviews and negative feedback and all I hear about is the taste being bad for some.

I knew going in that these would not be as good as regular pasta since they don’t have all the sugar and stuff but I can honestly say that with the right sauce and seasoning that they taste so damn good that I will buy them again. I got a 7 pack on Amazon so I’ll try the rice and angel hair some other days but as far as the Fettuccini I’m sold! Now I know that if I get that craving for pasta again in the future I don’t have to go to Olive garden or someplace but I can make these and keep it straight keto!

sauteed those bad boys in Worcestershire sauce and soy with a touch of sesame oil and they came out wonderful!

4 & 3 YESSIR!!!!!

Screenshot_20180212-094601.jpg

It’s back to Monday again and a fresh new start! Hello and good morning everyone who reads this, as always I wish you the best morning possible and a fun day after that! It’s a thin scary layer of ice around the surrounding areas of where I live so they called school off today which I must say was a good move because I was sliding around myself! The beautiful morning sun has peaked it’s amazing head above the horizon and the ice should be thawed in a matter of hours!

 

Yesterday’s workout marked my 4th strength training routine of the week, add that to the 3 nights of water workouts I did and that makes my goal for the week! Yessir! It’s so important that we set weekly goals as well so that we know what direction our journey is going! This week, starting today I am going to try to do 4 of 4, 4 days of weights and 4 days of the pool! Last week I even had my water shoes arrive so I will be able to do some serious work in the water this week! Currently, I do 3 lifts for each body part but this week I will be spending a little more time in the gym figuring out a new workout to add to my routine! Usually, when I do circuit lifting I can get it all done in about 25 minutes or so. Now during that session, I only get less than 30 seconds between reps so when I’m done my body has really worked. I think the next frontier is to move to more of a free weight workout that focuses on heavier weights and lower reps. I just need to figure out a way to get that in! The cardio in the water has been kicking my ass so I feel like it’s doing the job but I’ll still try to do the elliptical in the rotation to shock my system and break up the monotony. Just so you all know the end game is to be able to do 5 of 5 eventually with active rest days! It’s a very lofty goal but hey, I’ve come this far and all I can do is try!

 

 

Let’s talk diet for a moment. Last week I went to Longhorn Steakhouse and we also had taco bell once. It has been forever since I have done either and here I go doing both in the same damn week! Even though I was still well under my caloric allowance clearly this is a bad pattern to be creating again! So this week there will be no jumping out of the plan, I’ll be hitting my high healthy fat goals and chilling on all the extra carbs and processed foods! Last week wasn’t horrible I still met my dietary goals to fast for 2 24 hour periods and to do I.F. at least 16 daily and I’m proud of that. The goal, however, is to be able to take advantage of all these tools and not fight against me. I know my body and my habits well enough to know that I have to constantly re-up or I will fall back.lol. I do need a little help. I do one day a week that is vegetarian only and I find that I am consuming a lot of foods that are higher in carbs even if their healthy ones. If any of you have any ways to avoid this and have any suggestions I’m open to ideas. I’m such a meathead that I’m lost without some type of meat.lol.

 

textgram_1511119057.png

If your struggling this week and you feel like you need some motivation don’t hesitate to ask for help from me or anyone else! Motivation is so important and sometimes all it takes is a conversation or a quick chat to get us back to that space that we focus on what we are trying to get done. I got your back family! If you can’t find a way to be down to help someone else or be available to extend a kind word than what’s the point? We all have something that someone else can use for their good and I feel like I owe it to all of you to be the best I can be for you, so please consider messaging me or drop a post if you need a little help.

Have a Beastmode of a day and find a reason to love yourself!

Longhorn!

I absolutely love Thursday! No one ever gets mad or upset about it being Thursday!  I had a fantastic time last night and this morning was just as amazing so I’m in a great mode and ready to blog!

Screenshot_20180208-123911.jpg

 

O.k so last night I went swimming again, however, this time I brought some sense and my fiance’ with me!lol. I did several laps as well as a small workout water circuit and I exited the pool feeling a lot better than the first time! The swimming made the second workout on the same day, earlier I did a fast back and bicep routine while my girl signed up for the gym! I’m very proud of her! Great news I think that 1:30 p.m is the perfect time to workout at my gym! It was really slow and everything was available so I think I’m going to make this my regular time from now on!

 

I did a 24 hour fast yesterday and it felt marvelous! The more I fast the better I feel and that’s just fact. Now I cant see myself doing 24 hours every day but doing it twice a week will definitely help! Going to the gym after fasting that long you would think that you would be really weak when lifting but this is not true at all. My body actually feels like a fat burning furnace when I do a fasted workout! So when I extend the fasting it’s just that much more amazing!

The diet is going really great and according to my app, I’m in a massive caloric deficit so I’ll take it! We went to Longhorn this morning for brunch and I had a baked potato for the first time in 8 months! When I tell you it was worth the wait it was every bit and more! My gosh that baked potatoes damn near taste better than my pork chops which were delicious as well! Of course, you know I got a picture for you yall below!

 

20180208_112719.jpg

That’s about it today, I’ll have an update on my lettuce tomorrow and maybe some soapbox topic that I may want to blog on.lol. Have a fantastic day everyone!

On Your Mark!

Screenshot_20180129-053201.jpg

 

Looks like we are right back to good ole Monday morning again folks! Congratulations you have successfully made it to another starting block this morning. Today we begin another week to restart and get things right. No matter what you did this weekend or whatever you failed to accomplish last week no longer matters. I’ll take it one step further than that, even the things you accomplished last week don’t matter this week because you must kick ass once again this week to continue collecting the wins! Luckily we all know that you have what it takes to get things done and to truly be happy and satisfied because all the things you are working toward are your choice! I pray that all of you go out and attack this week with hearts full and with great vigor! Be better than you were last week, be the best you ever this week and you will be that much closer to your destination! You got this all day every day!

After Saturday’s great workout I took Sunday off to travel back home from our visit with family and friends and unwind.It’s so true that there really is nothing like your own bed and bathrooms to come home to! Although I didn’t lift I certainly wasn’t lazy because I went couponing and killed a couple of great deals at Riteaid this weekend! My family is happy that we are fully stocked up on just about all of our paper and bathroom products, laundry detergent and more! I’m not as heavy in couponing as I once was but there’s nothing like stocking up once in awhile and not having to buy certain but once or twice a year! If any of you coupon I would love to hear about it, by the way, it’s always exciting to hear about how much people saved and donated and such. So I definitely got my walking in for the day and the best part is when your shopping like that you don’t even think of it as a workout until you look at your smartwatch and it says you kicked ass.lol

On the diet front I did really well passing on pizza for buffalo wings instead and although I had some wine I made sure to drink plenty of water! I’m supposed to take some snacks with me when I travel to do things but it completely slipped my mind this weekend but thank goodness I stayed relatively keto. I only say that because I had a really bad headache Sunday morning and I had gas station coffee and some form of McRib type sandwich to get rid of my headache. It was one of those bad ones were your tummy starts to get sick because it’s pounding so hard. Typically I don’t get headaches on the regular so you can imagine that I am such a baby when I get one.lol. I would have eaten a small child if it would have stopped the pounding in my head! Blessing to me those items did the trick because my headache was gone by the time I got back home. We all had a great time catching up with everyone and the kids got to see a few friends they used to go to school with so that was a bonus blessing!

My goals for last week were as follows:

I.F 5 times between 18 and 20 hours each

Workout 4 times at the gym

Get a handle on what my calorie intake should be and try to get to 3k every other day.

knock out transferring my plants to their new aquaponic system

Blog at least 4 times

 

Screenshot_20180129-053458.jpg

 

I must say all my goals have been met and I even did an extra workout from home this week to round that up to 5! My eating and gym goals will pretty much be the same every week however they may have to be altered monthly as my weight hopefully keeps falling.lol! I just want all of you to know that it helps more than you will ever know to have you all with me on this journey. I truly believe that there is a great source of power when people get together in numbers for a common goal! The truth is there have been plenty of days that it took reading some of your posts and comments that drove me to keep getting out of my comfortable ass bed and putting in work! That kind of support is something that I will never take for granted and it means so very much to me! You are all so very special and you all have such a unique contribution to the world and I’m thankful that I continue to be blessed by your time and support! You are appreciated! Now go kick this weeks butt!

Have a fantastic damn Monday homies!

I Can’t Imagine

Screenshot_20180124-111902.jpg

 

Happy Wednesday everyone! Yesterday was a very hard day to swallow for me. As most of you know there was a school shooting in my state that left 2 people dead and several others in critical condition or injured. My heart truly goes out to the victims of these crimes and I pray that these families find some type of peace in the coming days. Having said that I was wondering when did we become more concerned about who or what to blame than who was affected? If you pay attention to social media and the like people have a wide range of views everytime something like this happens. I certainly understand that learning the root causation of something is extremely important in preventing these type of incidents from reoccurring in the future. It just hurts my heart that we spend so much time finding fault that we forget that this isn’t a video game. These people who lost their lives won’t be here tomorrow to start over again! we don’t even take time to just mourn the dead we just start spitting out all sorts of opinions and ideas often before we even learn all the facts involved. I would just like to take a moment to say I’m heartbroken for those people affected by this tragic event. I’m heartbroken for a 15-year-old kid who feels like he needed to do this. Most importantly, I’m grateful that I have a platform here to say: I love and truly care about my fellow man, even those I don’t get along with!

So today I would like to ask that if you are all reading this that you think about those around you. Not the family and friends you are comfortable with, but everyone around you and wish for them the same love and caring that you wish for your own family. All we are after all are a bunch of souls floating around searching for meaning and purpose and we share a common biological suit. We all have feelings and emotions and they are as precious and delicate as the next person! Please keep that in mind today and in the days to come!

My weight loss journey was fine yesterday and everything is moving forward as planned. I just feel in my heart that it’s more important to let all of you know that I care and love all of you, no matter what! No calorie or fat cell was ever more important than that. Nothing that I will ever accomplish or achieve will ever be more important than my fellow man! You are all important and all valuable and your place in this sphere is so very important! I wish you love today and forever! Until next time homies!

Sometimes you just have to have one! There are moments that you know are very pivotal in your life when you know that your lack of action here could cause a major setback. This morning around 3 a.m. I got this feeling that I needed to go to the gym really bad. It was different than other times before. There was a force that told me that If I didn’t go now if I took today off it would be really bad for me! Days off are important to allow the body to heal and recharge from the demands we put on it so I truly respect that aspect of having a day off. Today’s workout was important because getting on the scaler and getting my true weight was a very surreal experience and I found myself getting a little discouraged because of the road ahead! Suddenly there was a number that was no longer invisible or silent that was filled with truth. I am that size whether I like it or not and no matter how much I feel upset about it I cannot and will not allow my emotions to stop me from trying! This whole thing means too much to me! Having said that I had to get my ass out of bed and get back to work on me!

There is always humor in my life no matter what the situation and this mornings gym session was no different. I was about to get on my favorite seated cardio machine when I noticed the seat was broken! Now I use this machine all the time so I thought maybe because of my size I put too much strain on the machine and it gave out on some poor bastard just trying to get his heart rate up. I was told by the attendant at the gym that 2 of the machines have had broken seats a few time so they rotate the machines around because of location, not all the machines get the same usage. He is used to me working out and knows I like those particular machines so he was very quick to let me know that it had been broken already. In my head, I was wondering if he was just trying to be nice about the fact that it was my fault but he was literally pulling out invoices of work orders to prove his point. Now the scary thing is that he did this not to make me feel great but to show me that damn near 70 percent of gym equipment they have has had major repairs done because of wear and tear. Damn, that’s crazy! Anyways I moved to a different well-oiled machine and got my Cardio in for the day! My muscles may need a day off because my back and bicep workout was harder than it typically is and I felt myself struggling a little more than normal! Sometimes you just don’t have your best stuff but you still have to work at it right?!

Yesterday for lunch I made some cracks slaw and I must say it would really good! For my second meal, I had some of Panera bread cheddar and broccoli soup. I get these cool 32 oz already made portions from Sam’s club and they really do hit the spot! Of course, I had a nice delicious cup of bulletproof coffee to round out my healthy fats! Having 2 meals a day makes life so much easier.lol

In closing, I wanted to say thank you to all those people who reached out and said some really nice and encouraging things to me yesterday. I am truly humbled that in a world so busy and with all that people have on their plate that they find time to be so damn supportive! The truth is nothing great ever happens alone, there are always people who help along the way and I just want to say I love you all for your help! Have a fabulous Tuesday and praise yourself for something you did great! You deserve to be your own biggest fan!
