Sharing.


Road 2

I just want to share the road where I do my daily walk.

I try to do 4.5 miles every day and it works out ok for the most part.

This is the time I use to clear my mind. The time I use to get centered

and plan for the rest of the day. I also use this time to ground my self.

At times the urgent takes the place of the important and we must

be able to differentiate the one from the other.

Whatever your routine is make sure that you keep it in mind.

Stay committed to you and your goals do not start your day

by losing the first battle to the comfy bed.

As always I hope for the best for you all.

Cooking. The Other Art.

chef shirt

For those of us with a passion for cooking,

and the creation of great meals for us and

our loved ones, the term chef carries weight,

carries passion and a responsibility to the whites.

Those of us with the passion, and a desire to gain

control over our weight it becomes even more

important, and an intrinsic part of our day-to-day.

The knowledge to make a meal low carb, low salt,

paleo, or whatever the current “trend” is makes a

world of difference.

I personally know  that the knowledge has helped

me and others with the battle of the pounds.

I guess my suggestion is: Learn as much as you can

and use it. For the longest time I used to cook once

a week, for the whole week. It helped me stay on track

and I enjoyed that day creating good, tasty, flavorful,

nutritious meals within my diet limitations. My diet

for many years has been: Low fat, Low sodium,

Low carb meals. I really enjoyed grilling meats and

vegetables for my meals.  I also made at least two different

soups enough for 4 meals at least.

Cooking, good cooking is a pleasure. Learn and

take your skills for a spin.

Stay focus remain successful.

Temptations Come

DSC_0516

At the beach in Rosarito, Baja Mexico

Snacks on wheels.

Yes this is at the beach in Mexico.

If I am at home in Rocky Point or if I am at home in Rosarito

in Baja this candy store on wheels comes directly to you, on the

beach, with all kind of sweet or salty or spicy or any combination

of the three flavors that you can think of.

So if you like me like to get up early and go for a walk on the

beach before your morning coffee to get you started,

avoid this guys not because they are evil but because they

have all the temptations on one supped-up wheel barrow.

All joking aside we must be aware as best as we know of what

is waiting for us outside our door. I know that while in Mexico

I must be aware of the bakery shops. They use Crack in their stuff..

No they don’t but who can say no to a “concha” or an “oreja”, when

you have a great cup of coffee on hand and a whole empty hand

just begging for you to grab a piece of bread or two.

So I go for my walk and immediately take my happy butt back home

and have a good breakfast, then I can contend with the street vendors

and the bakery shop mafia.

The more we know and the better prepared we are the better our

chances for success.

Guys do not forget just how much we have to do to burn 100 calories

Don’t mess it up with empty food or useless fluids. Make every calorie count.

Gang Stay Focused Stay Successful.

On shapes and pounds.

I remember my father saying this to my mom.

Yes, she didn’t think it was funny either.

The reason most of us choose to have WLS

was because we got to a point where we had

to do something.  So to realize that we were round

was a good thing. I know that I flew past 300#’s.

I know that the size on my shirts resembled a

brand of Mexican beer and then some.

I tried it all and then I found the lapband.

The Lapband, while not for everyone it did

work for me.  So if you are thinking about

going through the procedure, make sure you

thoroughly evaluate all the pros and cons as it

is not as some think “The easy way”. Read, ask

questions, find a reputable program with a good

surgeon and a great support program for post-op.

This is not a decision you are to take lightly.

Expectations.

I hate it whenWe must decide what it is that we want, and once we do that

take the steps to accomplish it. Not any easier but clearer.

We live in an “Immediate satisfaction” society that has no patience

for planning, and organizing but even less for consistent

on-going daily work.

WE, however understand that our commitment, planning,

and consistent work will provide us the success needed to

support the next round of battles.

Gang, we know that it is not the easy but the consistency where

the success lies.

Let us keep going so that we might continue to be examples

to those observing us, those wanting to attain some of the

same success nectar. Continue to be an example.

Continue to put the work needed.

Let us all continue to make progress, daily progress.

Don’t You Quit!!

crawlingBecause quitting is not acceptable

we plan our work and work our plan.

We look into the future through our dreams

and hopes and we know what the value

of our weight loss is.

We want to live a longer, healthier

life and we want it to mean and stand

for something.

Gang. Let us not forget our dreams

and hopes., let us continue pushing and

working as all of our hard work and

diligence will show up in a better quality

of life that we get to share with our

loved ones.  (whether they want it or not 🙂 )
