Turning Heads

Losing 100 pounds turns a few heads.

It also raises quite a few questions like.. How?

I've always struggled with that answer. How..

I mean, I didn't go on a strict diet or start a dogmatic routine at a gym.

I just got tired of where I was and curious where I could go.

I figured the product in front of me was just the sum of my actions multiplied by time.

If I changed a few actions, replaced a few habits, over time my product would change.

The things is...

I didn't have time for the gym or exercise. I'm a husband and a father of 3 young kids who daily need help with homework, food, attention...

Still something had to change. I figured the best way to find time was to record how I used the time I had. After a week I realized how ineffective I was with the time I had.

With a few changes to my schedule, I found I had a lot more time than I thought. Not only was it less stressful, I also found I had more time to prepare better foods for my family. Those foods helped me lose 100 pounds.

Only, I don't know how to be compelling about journaling. Not yet.

But food...

It's been a passion of mine my whole life. I can talk about food. It's just now it's healthier food.

So that's what I'm going to start sharing. Recipes I make, as I make them. Photographed, streamed together in digital albums accompanied with instructions on how I made them.

There are many ways to make these recipes, if you're curious about alternatives, contact me. My recipes are ever alive and constant change as my nutritional requirements also change. Most recipes I make are vegan. I'm not dogmatic and I eat meat, but these meals are delicious and super effective. If they weren't I wouldn't share them.

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.
