Another day, another dumbbell....*kettlebell.
Abs aren't free. Unless you're Billionaire Billy (Microsoft is a helluva company). She works hard for the honey. My wife. For my honey. Her efforts come n the form of constant reminders that I indulged in one-too-many cinnamon rolls at last weekend's festivities. Can't help my soft spot for glazed buns. um no not those kinds of buns. FOCUS.
It's obsession. Not with making headway on aspirations of playing @therock 's stunt double this year... but with livin long. Each morning, every single day, every single week, every single month (but not year- that's way too much obsession) I first thank the Gods for Chris Hemsworth's hair (hey- guys got great hair), make sure my daughter's still breathing (doesn't every parent do that ? Oh. Just me), and get to jittering, shaking & gyrating. Whatever will prevent last night's 4,200 calories in beans, berries & french fries from making their appearance upon my hips & thighs. I know my overindulgences could become blubber abundances. No prob- I'm letting this morning's #veganpizza & coconut milk fight it out in my stomach.
Hedgin my bets on having no regrets. Up-and-down-AND-up-and-down-and...did you know lifting a 1/2 pound sandwich made of bagel bits & broccoli to your mouth over & over & over results in about 9,314 pounds lifted. Just takes time to get there. If Heaven is real then time's all I've got. Like #Miguel says, "where's the fun in forever" ? Besides it's a good thing I stay healthy because they say it turns back the clock. Makes for lots of hours of eating Vegan-stein's Burger. Someday.
We all got the tick & tock of an ominous clock but I'd prefer a happy ending, illness & crunchy-bones-free. I'll gladly settle for being that rare old man with shovel in hand...or...keeping doctors away with a handstand a day. Worth Noting: quite the pick-me-up when you're drowsy after a 3 and a 1/2 lb. Chipotle steak burrito. I can no longer endorse Chipotle...#chikfila made me do it. I can no longer endorse Chik-Fil-A...#peta made me do it. Sheesh. What CAN I endorse ?
A couple months ago, I went down to Georgia to visit Kaleigh. We were hanging out in Atlanta when she told me about this magical Chik-fil-a that sells burgers. I needed that in my life, and it was only 15 minutes south of us, so we got in my car and started heading there for lunch. By the time we got to the exit, we decided to just keep driving south. We continued doing that for about 5 hours until we were pulling up to a beachside strip in Panama City Beach, Florida. We got to spend about two hours on the beach before we watched the sun set and went across the street for seafood. After that, we drove all the back to Atlanta. What an awesome day trip (even if the next day was Sunday and I still haven’t had that magical Chik-fil-a burger). I think it’s so cool that I have a girlfriend who is down for such ridiculous, spontaneous adventures.
Also, I found this ratchet sandal that was covered in moving barnacles. I thought it was kinda neat. But ratchet.
PR on incline (95lbs x 2) from about a week ago that I never got to post (saying bye to the already tiny tits I had like.....😬💪🏼👋🏼) .
and then you know what comes after..post workout/chill time. always necessary 😅🤷♀️
Pearland is getting another Chik-Fil-A!! It officially opens a week from tomorrow near the Costco on Business Center Drive. May your drive through line shorten substantially and your waffle fries always be crispy! #wafflefries4ever
Got to have breakfast with some world changers this morning!! Micah and Grace (and Esther and Judah) are heading to Rwanda to teach as part of the B2theworld mission to bring education to those in war torn countries.
From home schooling and high school plays to college nights and buble concerts, road trips and a whole lot of coffee, Micah and Grace have always been a huge encouragement to me. So excited to be part of sending them on their way!!! #chikfila#chikfilabreakfast#thehaletrail#howshalltheyhear#donate#tithe#mission#b2theworld
This is a good place to invest in the kingdom. If you need a place to start tithing (outside of your local church) go here!
It’s National ice cream day! 🍦👅
Had this a couple days ago- bless having a license and a chikfila gift card 😂. On a real note: isn’t it weird how we get upset with ourselves for feeling full and/or feeling hungry? It really shows how much our mind and our body are at ends. I feel full after a good meal, and my brain is angry at me for feeding my body correctly. I get hungry, and my brain tells me that my body doesn’t deserve to ask for more nourishment because it has enough fuel already. But if my brain was right, then I wouldn’t feel hungry! Your mind can not tell you how much you need to eat. Online calculators or doctors or meal plans can not tell you how much you need to eat. (They can tell you how much you MUST eat to stay healthy- that’s a diff story). What I’m saying is, your body is the only thing that can tell you exactly what it needs. And you can’t be mad at yourself when your body speaks to you. I know it’s hard when you feel so disgusted and ashamed, and your body says it still needs more. But I promise: your body knows what it needs. We can’t punish ourselves for feeling hunger.
Stay strong 💪🏼✨
