I want to write the health blog posts later on in the day after my gym session so that the progress and activity information is current for post the next morning.
Expect to see Health Blogs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
I completed the full 48 hours of the fast. I think it was actually around 51ish hours or so, but who’s counting.…

Whenever I start something that’s pretty difficult, about
half to three-quarters the way through, the quitting thought crosses my mind.
I’ve quit on a few occasions to just go and do other
activities if I just couldn’t stand it any longer, but not when it ever counted.
When I needed to get something done, I told myself “You can
quit tomorrow”.… Read More “#38 You Can Quit Tomorrow”
Today is the 24 to 48 hour leg of the fasting session.
I was a bit groggy when I woke this morning, as expected. My old friend, coffee will help me out.
All I can say right now is that being able to still have
coffee while fasting, even if it’s plain, helps set the day off on the right food. … Read More “#37 Health Blog – The Fast Continues”
I heard something great this morning.
“Being able to communicate is your right.”
For my personal growth session this morning I wanted to listen to a talk about effective speaking. I found a two-part series titled “How To Become A Master In The Art of Public Speaking” given by Eric Edmeades for Mind Valley. I got a lot more than I expected from watching these, and I’ll be watching them again soon.…

Fasting is the new low-fat diet, except it’s cheaper, easier, and it tastes better. But the kicker is that it’s not new at all. It’s been used for thousands of years.
Oh man, what a loaded question.
I’ve decided to start a regular fasting regimen because it
is way easier figure out what not to eat than what to eat, which is nothing.… Read More “#35 Health Blog – Fasting Is The New Low-Fat”
I’ve been meaning to do another water fast. Yes, that’s when you abstain from eating food. Completing the first water-fast taught me a few things about myself that I didn’t fully understand at the time.
One of those things was my willingness to give things a try to push myself into the right direction.
If I want to make huge changes in the
way I live my life to become the person that I see in my minds eye:
I must be willing to give up what I am in order to be come what I will be.

I’ve written about the morning routine quite a bit already,
and there is good reason for it. Starting
the day off in the right direction and setting yourself up for success sets the
tone of the day.
I wrote previously about the 20-20-20 morning routine and you can read about that
here. Take an hour for yourself and well-being in the early hours to get your sweat on, grow, and reflect.… Read More “#33 Add This To Your Morning Routine For An Awesome Start”
I’m excited to spend some time with friends from out of town
I make a point to control my time nowadays so that work is no longer the most important thing in my life.
I spent most of my adult life not being available because being at work felt safe and gave me purpose and making money was the reward.…

Last night I played the game Super Meat Boy for the live
stream. It’s regarded as one of the more
difficult games in the platformer segment, and I wholeheartedly agree.
You can watch some of the stream replay below to get an idea of the game. If the video starts at the beginning, skip ahead to 24 minutes.
