Endless opportunities to succeed
At first, I saw this picture and didn't really pay much attention to it. (If you haven't found me yet, look for the bitchin bowl cut and awesome "ugly" sweater). So anyway, I thought about this picture again yesterday and it took me back to a simple time. I tried to think about everything that had happened since this picture, which generally represents carefree "childhood" to complicated adult life. To be brief, I'd like say that we should all periodically look back and understand where we came from and really focus on what got us to "today". Whether you're stealing hand-me-downs from the thrift store or a professional cat costume designer, a series of unique decisions brought you here. I challenge you to take 5 minutes to reflect or meditate, focusing on what decisions really were the deciding factor (when did life get "real"). Odds are, you've done some pretty cool things and have simply forgot or intentionally erased it. Get real with who you are.
The main thought process of this blog is to tell you...."Hey idiot, stop playing it safe and live a little". This requires you to STOP blind following of beliefs! The world is full of trends and guess what most of them want. They want your money and don't care about you...for real. There are countless ways to end your life with little decisions that add up over time....sure, keep smoking, eating processed food, peeing in the street and generally wearing "blinders", it'll get you no where. Fact is, mainstream is typically designed with one word in mind; "profit". I totally recommend doing the smallest amount of research for your own health, maybe even cutting out sugar or fried food. Between yoga, pilates, CrossFit, cave diving, swimming...or even walking, life is full of daily activities and hobbies and KNOWLEDGE. I found a TON for you to check out.
I'd like to highlight a few places stumble upon great meal ideas and breakthrough, life-altering endeavors. Do yourself a favor and check out some websites and podcasts. Get educated and make smart choices!
- Fat Burning Man
- Nom Nom Paleo
- Mind Body Green
- Rich Roll
- Andy Bellatti Nutrition
- Precision Nutrition
So recently I decided to make some small changes to my eating habits. Essentially, no more processed grains (tortillas, bread, pizza crust, crackers, cookies, brownies, muffins, bagels, midgets)...or really any grains. This means, no oatmeal so a substitute had to be found... I found THE BEST breakfast you could imagine and I really recommend you give it a shot. (mix up all the below ingredients)
- 1/2 Acorn Squash (roasted 40 min on 350)
- As much Cimmamon as you like
- RAW Vanilla Protein Powder
- Smashed banana
- Almond Milk
- Light coconut oil
- Tiny bit of almond butter
- Chia Seed
Below, you'll see an amazing salad made by my great Jessica friend at Jett City Espresso...it'll change your life. Also, I spent like 15 dollars on a bison filet and roasted some vegetables...pretty damn good. Either way, eating well can be a very productive and rewarding hobby. Anyway, I hope you all make a small change this week and thoroughly enjoy yourself.
