Oops I did it again

This morning I woke up full. It was a great feeling. I was pleasantly surprised. I felt like I could go the entire day without eating.

… But then I went down stairs.



I started to make a pecan, coconut flake, flax shake with cacao and erythritol. It tasted amazing! Just like a creamy, nutty chocolate. So good!!!

But I wasn’t hungry. In fact, I was full.

Then I made myself an omelet with goat cheese. Delicious.

But I wasn’t hungry. In fact, I was full.

The omelet was great. I loved it. I topped it with some Louisiana hot sauce and devoured it like a mad man.

But I wasn’t hungry. 
In fact, the entire time, 
I was full.


This is a reminder to myself


Wait until you are hungry to eat. Food is everywhere, you aren’t going to starve.

Stop eating once you’re good. You don’t have to clear your plate. You can save the rest for later in case you get hungry again.

The food industry shouldn’t dictate your eating habits. They have their best interests at heart, not yours.



Don’t be so hard on yourself


How many years of misinformation are pumped into your head? Do you think you can so easy shake them?

You tried 10 years to quit smoking! You took 3 months to lose your first 5 lbs!

Why are you so discouraged? Of course this is hard! This is a new frontier for you.


Don’t be sad. Instead, get excited! You found a new land to explore and master. And master you will... As long as you don't quit.

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. 





Nirvana Fallacy

One issue I see with people wanting to lose weight is their unrealistic expectations. Come on people!
This is not the fantasy land of TV where you lose 100 lbs in 5 weeks!
Come on, they live in a gym, 6 hours a day and have chefs prepare their 100 calorie a day meals. The even have their own personal trainers who torture them daily!
Reality TV is not the same as reality. Biggest Loser is not reality. It's TV!
Get it together guys!
What they are doing is an inhumane science experiment for ratings! I'm surprised no one has died!
And have you heard most of them are worse off now then when they started! They rebound so hard! Why? Because torturing people is horrible incentive to change habits!
Did you forget the TV exists to capture your attention? If it didn't, you'd be doing something else. On purpose they compress time to keep thing interesting.
It's not reality!
It's simple. If you want lasting results, you need to develop a healthy relationship with the food you eat.…
