RESILIENCE.

Always AlwaysWanting what we love and loving what we want

is a sure way to improve in our Resilience.

We all know that life is imperfect and we know

just as well that things are not going to be just

how we want them to be for the most part.

It is acknowledging that and deciding to push thru

that makes us better every day.

Not better than others just better than we were

just yesterday.

There is no such thing as a small change or a

little improvement. Better is better regardless of degree.

When Sh…tuff happens push harder.

When things don’t go as you want them., try again.

When you are not getting the results you want., Refocus.

Do what you must but do not give up.

Gang we are worth it.

Let’s go for it.

Life And Reality

be thakfullSadly many times it takes a disappointment

to realize and figure out short comings.

We must be aware and continually look

for what is missing in our daily life.

We need people who care enough for us

that they show us with their actions that they

are not just lip service and when they say

“I am here for you” or “I will support you”

they mean it.

Regardless the responsibility for our life

rests squarely on our shoulders.

And here is where love and gratitude

comes to the front as I think of the one woman

who has made the biggest difference in my life

My wife Amy whose patience, loyalty, love

And strength has made my life better.

Lot’s Of Love Babe you are always present

When so many others choose not to.

Let’s keep our eyes open and continue

to push for growth and continued progress

Regardless.

Always AlwaysThe inherent imperfection of being human.

We hope too much, We love too much.

We expect too much, We want too much.

We give too much, We push too much.

And some times we and those around us

fall short of what is expected.

Maybe it is just me.

The reality is that we all must be

honest, realists, sensible specially when

it comes to planning our activities.

We must at all times keep the main thing

the main thing as Mr. Covey told us.

Let’s keep those things that are relevant to us

on the front burner and continue to push.

Our health and goals are worth it.

Let’s make it happen.

Keep Working Today On A Better Tomorrow.

Working On Me.

body under constructionIs it just me or, at times it seems harder to convince

our minds to get a “Move On” that it is for our bodies

to feel ready and up to it.

I noticed on my last visit to the gym that my mind

tried all the way through my work out to convince me

with many rather creative arguments that we should

just pack it up and go back home.

I am telling you all that I have long tiring arguments

about religion, politics and history and never have I

encountered a more determined adversary than

my own mind.

Quite a learning experience and I used a technique

an old trainer of mine thought me back in Mexico when

I was into competitive weight lifting.

He said “Win one battle at a time., first get up then

get out after that just get to the gym., Then is when it

will get interesting he said. One routine after another

and then and only then when you are done you can agree

with your reluctant mind and go home.

Never forget that every battle counts and you should fight

to the end and never ever give up because also, every

time you loose the battle it counts., it counts against you.

Nothing but winners here so gang let’s keep on keeping on.

Also if you think yourself a winner or a fighter go find

the podcast “every day is Saturday” by my very good

friend Sam Crowley. Very good and inspiring stuff.

Inspiration.

 definition of hellIn Case we needed more inspiration.

The thought of this happening scared the

sleep out of my eyes for two nights.

How frightening to realize that we have failed

to use all of the options life had for us.

Let’s do the best we can now and always.

New Beginings.

crawlingTruly like this pic.

As a regular person I know of having had failure and times and moments when

the bed wins in the early morning and the doughnuts with the coffee.

But I also know of the pain and frustration when the bastard bathroom scale laughs

in my face. So guess what… I accept it and try again and then try again.

It is my goal to win and regardless of what happens outside of my head I will

continue to fight this fight.

I know that I am the only one who has ever failed at the battle of the pounds

so for all of the high achievers out there please just take this as comedy material.

NOW…. Should there be anyone else like me out there who is being challenged by

a pound of two I welcome your input and comments.

I am fighting a rather large battle and I have quite a lot against me yet.,

I am here working on more and better.

I m having my weight tracker adjusted so there is a public record and we shall

see where this road takes us.

I have this time enlisted the help of a life coach and I see how some of the

“OTHER” aspects of my life are improving and falling into place

so we shall see how this very important part of my life works out.

She is the nicest, toughest, most caring, knowledgeable, drill Sargent bitch

I have ever encountered in my life. I choose to do this online and through e-mail and

It is working for me. With a weekly evaluation and planning session and two to four

contacts by text or MSM messages through out the week she seems to be ever-present.

As I have always told you: Figure out what works for you and your needs

and go forward with it. Forget what others say and figure out YOU.

With Me In Mind.

you are allowed to do for you

The phrase that comes to mind with this pic is:

“If it is to be it is up to me”

Other than our parents seldom will there be anyone

else who will take care of us and our needs.

Those of us who are lucky at one point or another

to find someone who will walk with us but, for the

most part and for most individuals it is up to he

or she to be a one person support group.

It is up to the individual to push and push hard

to accomplish things.

It is my opinion that there is nothing wrong

with taking care of me. I do not mean this

to say F…. all others but make sure that

we are doing and taking care of our needs

wants and self. Never at the expense of others

but always making sure we are keeping a healthy

dose of self-love.  It is necessary.

Pushing Forward together.
