Back To School?

It certainly has been a while since my last blog. To be honest I lose the drive for almost anything I start. To be even more honest, there are days I simply do not want to be here or there. It is a daily battle to just get up some mornings. I say this openly because I am not afraid and I hope to reach anyone who struggles as I do. But I get to thinking, as I usually do, what can I do to better myself? How can I improve? Where can I attain a skill set? So I says to myself I says, “How about going back to school?”. Am I serious about this? I am 50/50 on the subject, but I know there is no way I can continue on like this.

So what do you guys think? I mean right now I am struggling and most jobs I have had were literally just jobs. Even though I truly enjoyed working at a few places, I was heading nowhere. Let me say this, I am seriously considering it and I think even part time may work best but you never know. I say this all the time and it seems like I don’t even follow my own advice, KEEP MOVING FORWARD!

You know it feels good to write something again and share what my thoughts are. I feel like I can be pretty open and honest with my blog and I like it.  Off I go to do more thinking and hopefully get the wheels in motion. Maybe I will even write another blog sooner rather then later.

Yo-Yo

Well it sure has been a while since I last had something to say. It isn’t because I do not want to document life events or post an opinion I have. I guess much like my diet, I have this “yo-yo” game I am playing. I ain’t looking for excuses, just telling you how it is. There are days I am motivated like Rocky then I go through periods where I feel like the Toronto Maple Leafs…

Hey I know we all have garbage to sort out and life isn’t a walk in the park, but I tell you some days or even weeks are just a struggle. Do I know what I want? Some days I tell myself I F’in better! Then reality checks in and I am so bloody confused, or am I?

I am grateful to have friends like I do. I do need to catch up with a few of my peeps, whom I have not seen in ages. They are good people, all from different backgrounds. And I love it.

There is a few things I need to improve on in order for me to reach any potential I have. You know what… That’s all I got to say right now.

7 Day Challenge (Cold Cuts)

Success! I demolished the challenge… Not a single piece of food was from a fast food joint! I will continue to stay away from fast food until I cave or really in a pickle… 

On to the next challenge, COLD CUTS! I will do my absolute best to stay away from these highly processed pieces of junk… Ya I know, who doesn’t like them? You know what though, try real shaved turkey, from a turkey you cooked yourself and you will see what a huge difference there is. Anyways… 

So the start date is Wednesday August 20th 2014 and will end on Tuesday August 26th 2014. 

 

7 Day Abstinence (Fast Food)

So get your minds out of the gutter you perverts! It’s not what you think, really! 

I decided to take my health a bit more seriously and thought to myself, “Hey, lets try a simple approach to reducing crap I am eating”. Let me explain…

Fast food joints are really killing us all slowly, and truth be told us Canadians are catching up to our American neighbours. That IS NOT a good thing. Now I am not so naive to think it is just the fast food industry that is killing us, but I have decided to start with fast food. 

  • McDonalds
  • Burger King
  • Wendy’s
  • Harveys
  • Mr.Sub
  • Subway
  • Quizino’s
  • Popeyes
  • KFC
  • Pizza Pizza
  • Dominos
  • Pizza Nova
  • Taco Bell

As you can see, that is quite a list but believe me there are probably a ton more fast food joints, they just aren’t in my area and I wont be wasting gas at these prices. 

The challenge was started on Wednesday August 13th and will end on Tuesday August 19th. I will do my very best to avoid eating anything from the 13 places on my list.

Something Personal

Everyday I think, about anything and everything. What to do, what to wear, what to eat, etc… I also think about life and what our purpose is on this planet, because we all have a purpose. 

There is a lot of sad things about this planet, especially these retarded wars and all these innocent people being killed. I wish I could help to end this horrible act of greed. There are bad people on this planet who deserve the worst. I just do not get why people want to hurt others. Unfortunately, that is not the only way people hurt others. 

Some people think it is selfish or a cowards way out. Everyone has an opinion but to be honest, if the opinion is not going to be helpful, shove it up your… You know where I mean. We all have bad days or weeks or even a bad year. It could be because of a choice you made or some bad advice. Hey, it happens to all of us. Yet for many people, it isn’t as simple as that. 

You are not weak and you are not alone. Trust me on this, it isn’t that easy. Everyday a battle ensues and you do not know why. You want to put on a smile and say everything is fine, but you know it really isn’t. It is dark and the walls are closing in on you but you see a path, only to find out the path is deep and unsettling. 

Be brave. Open those doors, talk to someone. Or listen to someone. It will not be easy and it may not be fun and that’s OK. You will not be alone. Close your eyes… Breathe in slowly. Exhale. Empty your mind… One happy thought. Yep, just one. 

But take that deep breath and make that first step.

Am I Owning It?

Hey guys and gals! I posted a video Wednesday after a DDP Yoga session, Energy, and I have to say it was good. I will admit my consistency or lack thereof, is atrocious. My drive is nonexistent and my diet is not getting better. I do not think I have given up, but I also have not kept pushing forward. Or have I???

Tuesday I actually went for a some cardio at the local park, but it was raining. So I did not get my full workout in, however, I did move. That’s the important part. Wednesday was the second day in a row I did some sort of exercise. I had a good DDP Yoga session and hope this trend continues.

So Thursday rolls around and my knee is giving me problems. I decide to relax it, even though in my head I am thinking I should push through this. Well let me tell you I made the right decision. The next day, Friday, my knee feels sore but somehow better. Guess what I did that day? Cardio at the local park, not that I was out there very long. I was pleased to get in some more exercise though.

I am taking interest in local produce, so I decided to hit the local farmers market. To be honest, I will not mention where my local farmers market is, I was very disappointed. What a letdown! Only 10 vendors, give or take, and half had nothing to do with produce!

There are days where I just want to give up or I am feeling completely bummed. You know what? The sun will shine tomorrow and we will rise with it. So keep pushing forward and own your life!

Weekly Submission?

Hey all! How is everyone doing? It has been some time since I wrote anything and here I am today finally writing something! I want to contribute more or rather on a consistent basis and not just useless blogs as I have in the past. I know the only one stopping me from this is… myself. Perhaps I shall start adding some visuals to my blogs as well, what do you all think? Great! I knew we would agree… So let’s get ready to rumble!!!

Oh I enjoy cafe, and from time to time make espresso or a cappuccino. Let me tell you the heart was a total fluke. It sure did taste good though!
