So, I am not perfect, nor do I want to be…

So I am not perfect, nor do I want to be.  Let’s clarify something, I am not some super fit physical phenomenon.  I really don’t want to be either.  I want to be healthy, I want to be fit, I want to have ability to do what I want to without worrying about whether or not I can physically.  I enjoy feeling good.

I am an average guy who likes to stay healthy and share that with others.  I face the same or similar struggles as the next person.  I have some good to great eating habits and I have some horrible eating habits.  I have some great workouts and I have the not so great workouts.  I sometimes miss a workout to give my body a break, and I sometimes miss one when I know I shouldn’t.  It happens.

What I don’t do is make excuses that blame anyone or anything but myself.  I am the only person that is responsible for my results.  No one can do it for me.  If I sneak a piece of cheese cake that no one sees, I am only cheating myself.  If I miss a workout and don’t tell anyone, doesn’t matter, I only cheat myself.  Where is the integrity in that?

Know that no matter what happens, accept personal responsibility for it, accept it, learn from it, see the good in it, and move on.  Eat better now, workout now, give to others now, share with others now.  You can do it.

Your current thoughts will dictate your future outcome.  So if you are thinking that you cannot get out of bed to workout, guess what, you won’t.  Even if you do you will resent it the whole time.  Get committed to making it happen.  Your body will adjust, your thinking will change and then you will all the sudden “like it”, “crave it”.

I believe you must have fun with what you do.  If you don’t, it will never last.  At the same time, you have to give new things a try long enough to really know if you like it or not.  Like running, until you experience a true runners high, you may not enjoy running as  much as the person who does.  So try it, give it some time(law of gestation) if you enjoy it, stick with it for at least 6 months.

Like P90X, I love it.  I will use this program or something similar for the rest of my life.  I am excited to go through the Insanity program in February.  I know I will like it based off of what I have seen so far.

A friend of mine contacted me and ask if I was just chiseled?  I said no, however I am in the best shape of my life, just takes time to get the last couple layers of fat off.  Check out my photos on

As I learn more about how to use this blog program I will add more stuff like photos and video of my workouts.  For now just typing.

To Your Health and Abundance!
