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!

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. 
This is month 2

Notice the calorie restriction?
This is month 3

Note the uptick in calories? 
I'm consuming …

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.
One awesome result is you can go back through your life and pick up gems you completely forgot about.
That’s what this entry was about. It’s too great to keep to myself.
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.
