Progress

I'm talking a lot about progress lately.

I'm talking about how we need to forget about perfection because perfection is obtainable.

But progress... progress we all can do. We all can measure then work to improve upon that measure.

Perfection was something that always held me back. I always wanted the perfect route laid out before I even attempted to start. 
Can you relate?
But when do we ever have perfect conditions? When are the conditions perfect for anything spanning more than a step? 

Goals

Thanks to Chandler Stevens for the inspiration.

Picture this:

It's dark and you have a goal. You have somewhere you need to be. You have a car, it's running.  The headlights are on.

Do you wait for morning? Do you wait until dawn when you can see the entire path before you go?

What if when dawn breaks, a hill lies before you? What if the construction crew of life posted detour signs all over your idealistic path? Would you  wait until they built the on ramp to success for you? 

Because it won't be finished before you are.

Or will you go ahead and let the headlights illuminate the immediate path before you? Only by moving forward can your next step be revealed.

You don't have to wait for the perfect conditions to start.

In fact, you must not wait for them to start because they'll never show. There's only one condition you need to start, and that's being alive.

I want to share with you some of my progress this last year.

I think you'll find is illuminating. I hope it can inspire you to take your next step. even if your next step is your first.

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.
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.
