Uncertified Wisdom

I made a friend today on the internet. What he's doing I think is beautiful.

He's underwent a one year transformation and documented his journey. Now that he's there, he's sharing his knowledge with others helping them also undergo a transformation. Way to go Flex. You can find him here on YouTube.

On one of his videos, he mentioned several people hating on him for giving body advice while not being a body builder. I commented on that video but am inclined to post an article to back it up with more detail.

You don't need a degree to make a point or to teach something of value. Especially not in this age. Maybe back when no one could read and libraries didn't exist but now, you are seconds away from doctoral knowledge.

What's more, we are so hyper connected, we can easy get high quality advice from anywhere from down the street to the other side of the world.

Sure degrees are nice, but they are simply no longer a requirement to make a ruckus and to create art.

So Create Art.

Make a ruckus. Share your knowledge and wisdom.

I don't have a degree in being a husband nor a father. I learn more about being better in both everyday and apply the skills liberally.

You just imperfect yourself until to are better than good. That's what makes your extraordinary.

Be Extraordinary!

Sometimes you might fumble the ball. So do superstars in the NFL. Basically, give what you have and grow along the way.

Everything that needs to be said has been said anyway. Fortunately no one was listening the first time.

Speak your wisdom. Create your art. Make your ruckus.

Way to go Flex!

True8 March

Recently I had the honor of joining Josiah Novak's True8 March. I want to share my experiences. But first, Let's back up. There's a super hero origin story in the works which puts the rest into perspective.
100 pounds ago (heavier), I was looking for ways to get my health under control. By chance, I'm came across The Model Health Show by Shawn Stevenson. It changed my life in many ways. Along the journey I was introduced to Larry Hagner. He runs the The Good Dad Project podcast. Another aspect in my life which needed work was my parenting skills. I started following Larry and joined his Dad's Edge group.
It was in that group I discovered Josiah Novak. 
Josiah Now Josiah's words resonated with me. Over the past year, I developed a relationship with health. I could tell he shared many of the same values I discovered. It was inspiring, because I could see myself in him in about a year. Father, friend of the community, passionate about health, fitness, life. We sy…

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. 





Dogmatic Diets

Try not to get too dogmatic with your diet. Like snowflakes, we are all similar but unique. Your best bet is to journal your way and listen to what your body tells you.
20 grams of carbs is just a starting point. Protein in grams to lean mass weight is just a starting weight.
Start there, then experiment. Get interested. Be a case study of 1. Learn to ask a lot of questions. Take all the answers with a grain of salt. Pink Himalayan Salt. Take everything with salt. You need the electrolytes.

And... of course, above all else, don’t forget to… 
Keep Calm and Keto On.
