Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

Oopsies! Wrong picture... **please see below! **

Hey, Howdy, Hey! You really want to shed some weight? Take your time, do it right! I don't care to use the word "Lose" as some people tend to associate this word with a loss. And we know how you feel when you "lose" something... In another life I was a Therapist!

1. Purge diets (bulimia) - You'll see these skinny mini's down at The Scarf and Barf Cafe! These diets are some of the most extreme and dangerous methods for weight loss. Vomitting, laxatives, diuretics all fall under this category and can be disastrous for your health and well being. Trying to shed weight is never a good enough reason to put your life in this much jeopardy. If you are currently struggling with bulimia please get help immediately! And then eat something, a burger, with fries, not like half a grape.

2. Crash diets - Crash diets are little more than starving yourself for vanity and are quite dangerous. Crash dieting causes malnutrition and in some extreme cases, death. Crash dieting will set you up for failure! That's why it's called a "crash" diet! Wow, just noticed that the first three letters in diet are D-I-E.. See, I am a geiness! (Genius-LOL)

3. Surgery (liposuction, gastric bypass) – This is one of the most extreme options for weight loss and should only be considered in emergency situations. That being said, I can’t imagine a situation where diet and exercise wouldn’t be both better for you and more effective. Many look to surgery for a “quick fix”. However, if they aren’t careful, they often find themselves gaining back the weight. Plus, no surgery is without risk and side effects. I’d say the surgery option is only for those extreme cases and where it is recommended by a doctor. But then again, the time spent in "RECOVERY" could have been used in the gym, or the track, or the pool, or in a really killer cross fit class... Or dancing naked with your significant other! Or at my house chasing kids...

4. Appetite suppressants – These drugs have been associated with many dangerous side effects, including fatal pulmonary hypertension and heart valve damage. Some studies have even linked strokes to the use of appetite suppressants. Regardless of their results, these drugs are not worth the risk to your health.

5. Fat burners – While these drugs have shown some results, most are in fact, quite dangerous. So take them with a vodka and red bull! (Just kidding...) Several have already been pulled off the market due to their side effects. Most, if not all, are unregulated by the FDA, which means nothing btw... Er, I mean that they do not undergo the same quality checking that real products do. Also, while they may help some to cut weight, they do nothing towards increasing your health and well being.
**PS. FDA stands for Flippin' Dumb Asses...**

6. Fad diets (Atkins, south beach, Foo Foo, etc) – These sometimes show some results, but most are either not healthy or otherwise unsustainable. For example, the Atkins diet encourages large amounts of fats and cholesterol which can be really acidic while eliminating good and healthy carbs. As I see it, the only thing these fad diets are good for though is taking people’s money. I'm tired. Gotta get some sleep! ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz.... Good night!

** Was kinda shocked when I stumbled upon this Hate Pic! God hates fags? Really? That's just horrible! I'd like to meet this evil person! Come on.. God said hate? God said fag? Does God hate fat people? How bout that kid who stole my bike back in 3rd grade?  As I see it, hate no one! 

The poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote, “If we could read the secret history of our enemies we would find in each man’s sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.”
Harboring anger and hatred toward anyone guarantees that you remain in low energy fields where problems will continue to crop up repeatedly in your life. Try examining every relationship in which you feel judgmental thoughts of anger and hatred. Replace those thoughts with energies of acceptance, kindness, cheerfulness, and love. You will have to make a personal commitment to, first of all, notice what you are feeling and then exercise your ability to choose to send love. When your heart becomes pure, your enemy becomes your friend, or even more significantly, your teacher. Your worst enemies are your greatest teachers because they allow you to examine the emotions of anger and revenge and then to transcend them. They give you the exact tools you need to elevate yourself to the spiritual energies that eliminate problems and provide solutions. When you send love in response to hate you accomplish one of the most difficult things for anyone.

Lesson learned: From the Buddha, “We live happily indeed, not hating those who hate us. Among men who hate us we dwell free from hatred.”

Be well! Stay healthy and free of hate!
