Temptations Come

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.

Chest Workout.

And now a little big attention to the “Chestal” area.

Yes I know that Chestal is not a real word but is sounds FUNNY.

This is a basic set up and excellent in my humble opinion

example of a routine for beginners.

If you are a bit more experienced you then know how to

“Doctor” this moves and exercises to work better based

on your wants needs and experience.

With this and with all new exercises please ask help and

guidance until you can master them.

This is one routine that will send you home happy.

I have to admit that I continue to be challenged by my

Leg Day. I do it to the best of my abilities but I can not

remember a single time I actually enjoyed it. If anyone has

a routine for Leg Day that you think is great please share

because that is the one that I hear the most gripping about.

Gang keep up the good work and remember that  all that

you do for a better you, benefits you but also your friends

and family.

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.

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.
