Carbs. Is there anything more scary

to many dieters?

I, myself am on a low carb diet, but I

am not letting that rule the whole of

my process and weight loss efforts.

There are times when I need or want

something and I get it. I know that  want

as I might at times I either want, need, or

deserve a treat, reward, or fix and I do not

deny myself.  I have however learned to

differentiate a one time thing from a whim.

Keeping goals and priorities present helps

to limit the number of exceptions and that

is always a good thing.

Gang, stay focus remain successful.

The Real.

DSC_0061What is hot?  What is fast?

What is stylish? What is the it thing?

The answer is: It depends.

The same thing happens when it comes

to us. To diet, weight loss, appearance, etc.

It is about what is right for US. What is

appropriate and adequate for us.

Don’t let the flashy or trendy affect the process

you have delineated for yourself.

Keep it up and have an impact on your world.

Walking and life lessons.

20170609_111815

In the middle of the desert between the I-10 and

the I-8 there sits the testing grounds for the military.

This was a great walk and an amazing opportunity

for a class for my kids whom I was home schooling

at the time. It was great to teach them hands on

about physics, projectile trajectory and also about

patriotism. Yes.. I consider myself a patriot even

though I was actually born in Mexico.

There is so much to be proud and grateful in this

my adopted country.

I wish those of us in the US could learn how to care

more for the country and a little less about our

own and very personal political views be them what

they might be.

Gang keep looking forward and pushing for your

dreams and goals.

I need to travel.

DSCN6006

Even though I go on short trips

today I find myself longing for a

long trip. Many miles, many days.

This picture of me was taken somewhere

in historic Charleston, SC.

Great weather, great food, good drinks.

Our lives are about more than just work or

paying the bills or losing the weight.

Life is about living it some.

This photo safari had me walking several

miles and taking many pictures.

Great times, great memories.

Go out and make some memories of

your own. Put some miles under your feet

and eat some amazing meals.

If you have a significant other just imagine

the impact this could have in your relationship.

Keep moving, doing and experiencing more.

Pushing For More.

Condo Add Pictures 007

For so long this was the view from

my living room and I now find that

I took all that beauty for granted.

I now miss it after I sold and now I

am working harder to purchase again

and I know that I will. Don’t know

when or where but I know that I will .

I am writting this at the end of year 2017

and now I am working on goals and plans

that will make this goal closer for 2018.

The thing that matters for us., those of us

on the battle of the pounds is figuring out

what works. Let me tell you something.

I do not know how or when I will get

another property like this one but the

process of getting there is going to be

exciting. I will make it fun as I push myself.

This post will go live sometime in January

of 2018 and I hope that by that time you

are actively working on your goals and

dreams.

All the best to you gang.

Going For A Walk.

DSC_0033

Taking a walk by the ocean

is one of my favorite ways to think

or clear my mind. This picture I took

at the malecon (no clue how to translate

that word to English)  in Puerto Peñasco,

Sonora. Mexico. This is the place that as

of late I call home. I love the ex-pat life even

though I was actually born in Mexico.

It is great to live a life that allows us to

do what we love and be able to enjoy the

little things that give us happiness.

Gang we all have a side hustle that can

afford us a few of the little luxuries or

pleasures of life. If you are interested in

finding what is or could be your side

hustle let me recommend the book:

“Side Hustle” by my very good friend

Chris Guillebeau. He is also the author

of: “The $100 Start Up” which is also

pretty darn great. You may or may not

have an interest. Me… I want to enjoy more

while doing less and less. I have not worked

for anyone since August the 31st of 2011

when my position as General Manager

was eliminated. I love to travel and go

where I want when I want well… It is

as Master Card would say…… priceless

Truth And Reality.

As we end yet another year it will do us good

to realize the power we have to make those

decisions that can and will make a big and

durable impact in our lives.

I know that I can not ressist oriental noodles

so I avoid the opportunity to go to battle over

them with myself., why? because I loose every

single time. I know that the smell of freshly

baked bread will always, always abring me

to my knees so I avoid bakeries and walmart

at certain times.

I also know that drinking my green smoothie

will always help me keep to my diet so I drink it.

Same with you. Figure out what defeats you efforts

but also what provides inspiration to keep your

diet and stay within you boundaries.

We must be aware in order to be successful.

Pay attention and win more consistently.
