Do you believe yourself a fat person?

I was talking with a Dragon Slayer and was compelled to ask the following question.

Do you believe yourself a fat person?

Now why would I ask that? Am I that big of a jerk? I hope not!

In reality, it was a probing question, and I was expecting the typical 'yes' as an answer. What I got was something quite a bit better.

I Love My Dragon Slayers!

But as we talked, the accumulation of the information I have been working on spilled forth like a dam's breach. My words poured out like water into a valley I was so moved. Luckily I was able to capture them.

The following is what I wrote with some minor edits, additions, and formats.

I ask this question because a person who believes them self fat, will be fat. likewise a person who believes them self depressed, will be depressed.

Your mind is powerful.

You must guard what goes in it.

Your Thoughts Dictate Your Emotions

Dwell on positive thoughts and you will become positive. You can't pour diesel in to an engine, rev it up excepting it to come out the other end as jet fuel.

The same way, you can't dwell on negativity and expect a positive outcome.

So be positive and affirm to yourself hourly you are a winner.

You are stronger than you think you are.

You are going to win. Because when you do that, your emotions are flooded with dopamines, you get a positive high that'll help you act upon those thoughts because...

Your Emotions Dictate Your Action

When was the last time you saw a depressed person working out? Seriously though!

Do you see sad people going out for a jog? No! They just stew in their own negativity!

Have you seen an angry person do something positive with his anger?

I can tell you that I'm far more likely to get info an argument with my wife when I'm feeling negative. Same with my children.

I'm not proud but it's true. The best way to fix it is to make it visible, identify it, and grow from it.

Still Water Breeds Poison

Anyone who's played Dwarf Fortress can tell you about stagnant water.

It's the same with your thoughts, emotions, and actions.

A negative person is toxic to them self.

So don't let negativity gain a foothold on you.

Identify your vulnerabilities to negative thinking and toxic thoughts. Shore up your defenses to combat it. You can't improve on the things you can't measure.

Also, don't go to bed angry or with bad thoughts. Guard your conscious and doubly your sub conscious. Command yourself content before you lay your head down. Affirm yourself asleep if you must. This will affect your health. Best to affect it positively.

This stuff even goes all back to biblical stuff. I don't care what your religion or lack of is. That bible is one hell of a self help book.

Sorry For The Info Dump

I just felt compelled to share this with you.

I gotta pay my successes forward. I hope you can this of use.

And I hope they can be used as jet fuel in your rocket ship of motivation on your journey toward success.

Love you brother and keep fighting the good fight, if you need anything at all, let me know.

Crazy Comparison

Last month I was doing an amazing job on keto.
I lowered my weekly average of carbohydrates from the first month. I raised fat up to where my protein level was and eventually surpassed it
It was a great time and I could tell it was working for me.
Little did I know what was going to happen in month 3.
Month 3
For month 3, I decided to trust fat more.
I did that by keeping carbohydrates around 20.Limiting protein to around 70g.And relying on fat to get me through the rest.
I soon realized I was going to need to supplement fat so I decided to do this with Bullet Proofing Coffee and Tea
In the beginning, it was a rocky start. I wasn't so sure I could pull this off. My first Bullet Proofing ended up a failure. I wrote about it here.
But I didn't give up
As a result, I now have two recipes Morning Proof CoffeeOffice Proof Coffee
I also have some interesting pictures to share.

Half Birthday

I love what I wrote today in my journal. I’m going to share it with you.
Do you journal? It’s awesome. Sure, it’s awkward in the beginning but it’s gold long term. You can find So much value writing your thoughts.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hey look! It’s my Half Birthday.
So far, I’ve persevered every time against anxiety. Why does it still trouble me? Why am I still so afraid?
May we remain joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer, always.
Anything worth doing is not a one-step journey.
Stay mindful of your goal.
Things to ask yourself:
Is deviating from your goal worth it?
Will you regret deviating tomorrow? Will you regret it in 5 minutes?
Is the deviation a new experience? Then consider the deviation. New, non-mundane experiences are worth it for the story.
Is it a special occasion? Sometimes the health…

Stairs 2017

In the beginning of 2016, I had the crazy idea to get into shape.  So, since I didn't have any free time nor a place to spend the nonexistent time... I decided walking the stairs was a great idea. Coworkers were doing it, it'll be fun. We'll get to walk and talk, and bond. Maybe I could even make a friend or two! Until I realized I could climb 3 floors without wanting to fall over and pant for air. I was that out of shape.  I was so embarrassed. An Army Veteran, couldn't even scale 3 floors without needing a rest. 
In this post last year I get more into detail about the experience and how I overcame it. I want to say it was quick and easy but it took a lot of work.  But... the work was worth it because now I can do crazy cool things in the same stair well. 
I want to share one with you.
