Starting is the first step
6/1/2018 – 6/3/2018
This has been a challenge getting my eating habits on track. These first three days were filled with a lack of exercise, and a handful of chocolate chip cookies…I regret nothing!!! Ok…so I’m disappointed in my lack of self control, but that’s what this is all about. Getting self control and sticking to a plan.
I will be healthier. I will be more fit.
I will get into a healthy eating regiment. I must. If I don’t eat healthy, then what will happen is, all this exercise will become useless. I’ll be just pushing against a brick wall.
As I progress I will be sharing some recipes, fitness tips, and anything else I learn along the way.
So stay tuned!
Could I have done more today? Yes. Always. I got selfish though. I wanted to enjoy hobbies this evening, and quit my side hustle early. I worked out twice today, didn’t eat junk food, did some Grant Cardone training webinars. Today was good. I feel accomplished overall, and I’m on the right track.
I am grateful for the opportunities I had today. The opportunity to work out, to work toward goals, to have the financial discipline to get healthier food.
Successes: 60 push-ups today. I will up that number for tomorrow. It’s important to push yourself, and reset goals when reached.
6/6 – 6/9
I have been actively eating right, and exercising. I have not had fast food, or junk food. These are two big accomplishments.

Salmon is a great source of protein, and it’s a very lean meat. It’s rich in Omega-3, which a fatty acid that has a lot of great benefits for your body, including helping prevent some heart disease.
It’s quite easy to cook too. You can pan fry it, bake it, or even grill it! Your choice!
How to cook
- Thaw frozen fish in the fridge. Make sure you put it in a plastic bag, if it came in a vacuum sealed one. Then when thawed, pat it dry with a paper towel, and bring it to room temperature.
- Pre-heat your pan on a Medium temperature with some 1 Tablespoon Of olive oil (pro tip: put a little bit of pink salt in the pan as well, this will help keep the grease from popping a spraying when you put the fish in…I learned that the hard way)
- Lightly salt (and pepper if you choose) the salmon, and place on the pan
- Cook it for about 5 minutes, or until you see it turn golden brown on one side, then flip over with a spatula. (If you leave the skin on one side, place the skin side on the pan first)
- Cool until the fish feels firm to the touch, and the skin is crisp.
- Total time 10-15 of cooking.
- If the salmon sticks to the pan, let it cook a little bit longer, and it will come on when you flip it.
I have not been keeping up with the updates on this page like I wanted to. That is my fault, and I take full and total responsibility for it.
So where am I at? My old shoes fell apart, so I couldn’t go to the gym as often. I have weights at home, so I’ve been a lot more weight training. I feel great!
I finally bought some new running shoes! They’re pretty comfortable.
I noticed that when I got on the treadmill, even after several weeks not being on one, that I had more stamina than before. Working out every day, even with weights, has been really helping.
I have not ate junk food…I really want to though…
I’ve been eating healthy for the majority of my meals. I cheat every couple of weeks.
I’m consistent with my workout routine. Consistency is a key discipline.
