The middle of the week is here so fast it seems! Welcome to the blog, I hope everyone is doing great and living their best life this morning! One of the many blessings I am thankful for is coffee in my cup this morning, it just feels right when I get that first drink after my morning water bottle. So while I am very thankful for the taste I am also mindful that many people don’t get the chance to even have coffee time in the mornings because of their busy lifestyles! I’m glad you are reading this today and I truly appreciate you this morning!
So far this week I have made really good money at my job and the place has been packed because of the voting going on this week! I’m not super political but I’m always happy to see people so passionate and engaged about things it just brings more energy to the day! The great thing about it was I got a great workout at work, I mean I really pushed myself to go all out and give all I had and I’m grateful that I was rewarded with awesome guest and wonderful conversations. The scale has been trending in a great direction lately and I’m very enthusiastic about that there!
This week I’m fasting all week doing 18/6 which I love because it’s simple and easy and basically when I go to work the time flys! It’s just not my thing to really eat at work because I get really tired and worn out so when I’m doing an 18hr fast it’s cool because when my shift is over and I get home I can eat some bomb low carb foods! This week so far I have had hotdogs with no bun, a few pieces of bologna and baked chicken. My snack of choice this week has been pork rinds and by that I mean my side dish because I’ve been going zero to low carbs this week. I had plenty of carbs when I went to Cali so I feel like I can get super low on the carb scale this week. It’s all about having a plan my friends that way at least you have a little direction and you can hang your hat on the fact that you have done all you can to get to your better.
Speaking of fat loss, I am thrilled to announce that I am officially 483 as of this morning which is my lowest weight to date since I’ve been an adult I believe.lol. I’m very happy that I am starting to get back to shrinking to my goal weight and progressing at a steady pace. I credit my fat loss to the fact that I have an amazing family who loves and support me and also to the idea that I can and will be in the best shape of my life this coming season! My chips are on the table and I’m certainly all in on improving my body so that I can be more present and engaged for the people around me. Getting better every day just feels right and even though there will be setbacks they don’t have to define the struggle they are just part of it! It’s lofty but my short-term goal is to get to 450 before the 22nd of January. Why that date you ask? Well if you have been following my blog you know that the 22nd was the day this year I first bought my scale and if I get to 450 that will be a few pounds over 100 pounds lost since I’ve bought it! That’s more than 30 pounds in 2 months but I’m shooting for it because it’s my life and I’m about dreaming big!
The next few days I will be working on my podcast about battling obesity and I hope you will find time to check it out, I believe it will help anyone who struggles with their weight or knows someone who does. I’m scheduling the release of my podcast every Saturday for now until I learn more about what I’m doing! It’s hard work but very exciting to dive into these different topics as well as share things that I have learned thru research and life experience. Big Boi Koncepts will be my main focus as far as bringing value to others in the form of dealing with obesity for the next 14 months. That’s the name of the podcast by the way.lol.
I’ll let you all in on a little secret the best thing I have done recently is develope a morning routine designed to improve my inner self. I start off the day doing Qigong and stretching because I am the most unflexible human being in the species I’m sure of it. Next, I have been doing about 10 minutes of meditation followed by going over my goals and aspirations for the day as well affirmations. Folks this stuff is very powerful because not only does it keep you focused but it serves to embed your deepest and most treasured outcomes in your subconscious! Did you all know that scientist believe that up to 85 percent of what we do comes from our subconscious? To be completely transparent I’ve never even truly thought about my subconscious, what it is, what it does, EVER! It was just a word I heard people on television use but there is some powerful science-based evidence that it plays the most important role in our actions on a daily bases. I guess I’m just super late to the party but at least I’m pulling up and getting there! Keep getting to know yourself better homies, you are certainly worth it!
Since it’s the middle of the week I challenge you to start today and find someone to bless this week! I’m not talking money or gifts but anyone who you can be of service too. Maybe the guy who delivers your Amazon Package or a Barista at your favorite espresso cart! Pay for someone’s breakfast if you’re grabbing fast food this morning, lend someone your favorite novel, anything that lets someone know that you’re here to serve!
Have a crazy and joyous Humpday and get yourself happy, it’s on you!
