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.

Thoughts Of My Mother.

Dona nohemi manos 2

Just a few years ago my Mother passed.

She was an astute and very smart person.

We had the longest conversations as we traveled

by train from the border town of Nogales all

the way to Guadalajara. She had an extensive

knowledge of Theology and baseball stats that

I am yet to find on anyone else.

She would challenge me with questions not

about religion but about God and faith.

She did not much care for any particular

religion but she was none the less a strong

believer.

Tomorrow would have been her birthday and

I find myself missing her quite a bit.

Maybe because I mentioned her a lot on my

new cook book or just because I miss her words.

We do not have all the time we want or that we

will need so in the here and now let’s do what

we can and live and try to live better every day.

Today. I pray for my mother.

About Believing.

champions believeI have a friend. She is one of those persons

that can inspire even the worst of cases.

She however, is unable to see in herself

all of the strength and inspiration that

she gives so many of us.

I wish I could say that I always see the

possibilities and opportunities but I have to

admit that many a time I too fall short in

noticing the good. Admiring the great.

Enjoying the amazing and forgetting the

shortcomings of those I expected SOMETHING,

ANYTHING from. After all it was my fault.,

it was I who bestowed upon them character,

compassion, values, and characteristics

they did not posses.

Go Figure.. I guess I was WRONG.

Reality Kick In The Gutttt.

DSC_0429

This is a picture of a while back.

It is me at the beach with the daughters

of a lady friend. The little one Savannah

reminded me on that day why I needed to lose

weight on a hurry. Gang., I could barely keep up

with her and the reason is clear as you look at the

picture.  Between health, economic and other issues

I had once again ballooned in weight and could

hardly do anything.

Things have changed some and next time I will

be better prepared for her.

Reasons. We all have them and we also have

excuses so figure out what is important to you

and go forward with it.

Exercising and dieting are not things that happen

naturally or organically. You have to effect change in

your schedule and routine in order to make it happen.

So I now ask you: How important is this for you?

Your actions not your words will show your commitment.

Working on a better tomorrow see you then.

The Difference Of 1/2 A Pound.

half a pound

“Just 1/2 a pound.”

We at times seem to forget the power of compounding.

Darren Hardy the publisher of Success Magazine wrote the

amazing book “The Compound Effect” a book that I always recommend

to people going through a hard time accomplishing stuff in general.

this book is quite the handbook for change and accountability.

One 1/2 of a pound is a very significant amount of progress and

if you can manage to loose it consistently you are so far ahead few

will catch up with you.

All progress is significant and all progress is good.

Do not let small steps discourage you., instead push to make those

small steps the foundation of your major changes and accomplishments.

If you want to learn more about the book from Darren Hardy

The Compound Effect follow the link to my Kit.com page

and look at that and other books that will push you past

the real and made up limitations that we all have at times.

Wishing you lots of consistency and accomplishments.

Reality of Pain.

fb_img_1445305804932For some of us the living in pain is a daily reality.

For me between the fibromyalgia or my

5L Parss Deffect or my damaged knee.

It is a reality and when trying to get help

we must add insult to the injury (pain).

My pain specialist Dr. Suttera has been

truly a God-Sent as he has worked with me

on a progressive plan that has given me

some relief.

It has been a long way of trial and error

with many meds until the right combination

was found.

Recently, however while out of state I had to

deal with the ignorance and over reach of

“Medical Professionals” who use their personal

bias to judge instead of their training to treat.

Anyway….. It was my back pain what finally

made me look for help and start on the long

road of weight loss and it has been precisely that

which has helped me the most.

I offer that if you are in pain or your blood

pressure or cholesterol are out of whack

stay with the plan. If you have a lap-band®

make use of it and the resources that should

have come with it.

Gang keep working on your own health

Stay focus and remain healthy and successful.
