You Have The Power!

you have the power

We have a God-given right to choose.

Our decisions impact our life and that of those around us family and friends.

All of the little and seemingly insignificant decisions we make day in and day out

have the cumulative power to change and affect our lives.

There is a book titled the compound effect by Darren Hardy Publisher of Success Magazine.

In it Darren shows us the power both negative and positive that each and every decision

we make, can make a difference on the quality of our life.

The extra glass of wine, the fun size chocolate packet, or the extra serving of ice cream

can add up to significant calories, grams of carbs, grams of fat whatever you want to track.

BUT, just as well taking the extra steps by parking a little farther, drinking an extra glass of water,

walking just a little extra, adding a set to our workout, using mustard instead of mayo, etc.

has an effect. What will it be? The positive or negative?

We have the power to decide, we have the opportunity to change our tomorrows and,

by doing that change our life.

Use your power for good., for good longer living.

Gang as always all of the best for you all.

On Big Dreams.

dream big

All things being equal doesn’t it makes sense to dream big?

It takes the same effort to dream crap than to dream championship.

Like my good friend tells me: “when it comes to the good in life

I want more., I always want more”

I guess I agree. I want more life, I want more health, I want more wealth.

I want to lose more weight, I want to feel much better.

I am ready to put my best effort to accomplish it as I know nothing

worthwhile is free.

How big are your dreams? How great your hopes.

It is up to us gang.

Let’s Go Do It.

Helping The Excercise.

20150403_200553

All the exercise in the world is wasted if we do not eat the right foods.

Every one should know what food and items are the ones that affect us

the most and for some of us, the solutions are not as clear.

I tried many different approaches before getting my Lap-Band.

I am proof that ALL Diets Work if only for a little while.

For me it is Low Carb, Low Fat, Low Sodium and it is good because

I do no crave sweets and I do love meat and seafood.

I enjoy walking and working out but, I enjoy eating even more.

I truly enjoy fish and grilled meats so it is lucky me, but if you like and

enjoy other foods then you must learn about portions and nutrient

density. Not all foods are created equally so the more we know the

better our decisions can be.

Keep learning, keep looking at your self and the results that come out

of your efforts, and every day you will be better and your results will be

more permanent. That is after all what we all want right???

Have fun with food, try new things, go to a restaurant you have never

been to. My last memorable restaurant experience happened  actually

years ago at a Texas Road House in Gilbert, AZ I think. I shared a meal

and even that I could not finish. It was a strange meal. It was a strange day.

I had a taste of chicken and a taste of ribs and a glass of water.

Enjoy the process but also enjoy the food and your meals.

It is all part of the process.

The Making Of Us.

This is true in more ways than one.

One of the best ways to ensure that goals are met

is to write them down. Also, it makes dreams and goals

more real, and present while making them significantly

more attainable. Your life is worth recording so invest

on a journal and see your life transformed.

Do not skip steps. Write that which is important and

relevant to you in life and see it become your reality.

How We Are.

6dab7192b4261488724e2a1115f3a7c3

The way I see it is: “Even Superman has his Kryptonite.”

And we are not as bad ass as Superman so we must be

“Super” careful. I know that French bread at Walmart

would kick my behind every single time so I avoid it.

I know that if I don’t do my cardio before I do weights

I will not really do either.

It is in the knowing, and knowledge of our weak areas

that our chance for success comes.

Acknowledge your strengths, and be mindful of your

weak areas, and you are half way there to be successful.

Make your plan, work your plan, watch the pounds drop.

Simple right?

Not Really. What is easy to do is easy not to do.

Want it bad enough and you will do it.

On Changes.

diaper dietWE are the only ones that can truly impact our diet.

It requires change and a bit of desire.

If you had WLS you know you have made the investment

already, so why not use the tool you purchased?

Follow the guidelines, drink the water, measure the food,

take your meds, and make sure you are taking your vitamins.

Not rocket science even though at times it feels like it.

And, if you add activity and exercise you just turbo-charged

the program. so hang on and keep rocking it.

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.
