Fun Free Facebook Event Weekend

May 19th to 21st

This weekend was a Fun Free Facebook Event Weekend.

I want to share with you my weekend in hopes you may find some Fun Free Facebook Events. They help me and my family be more active. I recommend checking them out on weekends not already booked.

May 19th – Houston Dynamo vs Galveston Harricanes

We batted the idea of going to see Guardians of the Galaxy II for a while but ended up doing this instead. I’m glad. First off, it was free. Second, there was a playground nearby. Third, it was a cool evening and we won’t get many more until winter.


I enjoyed watching from the sideline. It was so cool watching John imitating the various players from the sideline too.

One of the most interesting things was John rather wanted to watch to game than play on the playground. Such a peculiar boy but I think it’s good.


After a bit, a little league baseball game started over the way. John asked to watch America’s pastime instead. We walked straight past the playground on the way to the diamond, he didn’t even glance to the structure.

May 20th – Home Town Heroes Celebration

We started the day at El Franco Lee Park to drop off Colin at his Dad’s then headed here. I wasn’t sure what to expect. We found League City Police Department K9 division doing a K9 demonstration. These dogs are so cool and highly trained. I would not want to be a bad guy around them!


Near the end of it, John told me he was ready for the Firefighter Games. I guess I spilled the beans on that one so this was cut a little short, and it turns out that was for the best.

May 20th – 3rd Annual Firefighter Games of 6th street

We got to this even midway through it and boy was it cool. They had all typed of firefighter competitions. My favorite was water ball. Two competing teams use the fire hoses to blast a suspended buoy to the opposing goal. So good!


After a few matches and demonstrations, it was getting hot and the kids where tiring fast. They both crashed hard on the way back to the house. Cheers for a peaceful ride home. More cheers John went straight back to nap when he got home.


May 20th – Game Night

After a store run, Anne Marie loves to be the hostess with the moistest, we started setting up for Game Night. I had the grill fired up and food cooking while she prepped the inside.


The company came over, we chat and ate for a bit, but then it was time for the main event. Game Time.


Brian brought a game called 5 Minute Dungeon, it’s a hack and slash card game which impressed us all. We enjoyed it a ton!


After that, we considered Bureaunauts, a game created from some local friends . The thing was, it was too many rules and too late at night. I didn't have it in me to brush and instruct everyone on the rules so we turned to another game.


Oregon Trail. It was a great idea! Two cooperative games on game night was perfect. Can't wait for next time. We are planing to try out Betrayal at House on the Hill.

If you have any suggestions for cool, fun games for game night. please let me know. We're always excited to try new ones. Just leave your recommendations in the comment section and I'll get right back to you.


Thanks!

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.
