Small daily actions that become habits will cause a great amount of happiness in our lives. This list is a boiled down list of the habits I’ve found to be the most effective in my life.
Simple actions but not always easy to do.
1. Wake up early.
2. Exercise Daily.
3. Spend time thinking daily.
4. Prepare a To-do list.
5. Meet New People.
7. Wear Simple Clothes.
8. Record and Control expenses.
I’m often asked what I eat and how I lost 20 pounds.
In this post I’m going to briefly cover what I did to get my health back under control.
This is what worked for me and it may or may not work for you. So do your own research and make your own decisions about what you should do.
This is what I did…
Step 1. I downloaded the CarbManager app and checked all my food against it. My goal was to eat less than 20 grams of carbs, around 144 grams of fat and 99 grams of protein per day. I saw results in the first week and by week two was down 10 pounds.
Step 2. Once a week, on Sunday night I would start a fast that lasted about 16 hours.
Step 3. I weighed myself every morning with a scale that sent my body composition to an app on my phone. That way I could make changes in my diet immediately.
I ate a very small amount of sugar. A negligible amount.
I like simple foods that I can prepare and eat often. I love bacon, eggs, avocados and veggies so that’s what I mostly ate.
A picture is worth a thousand words so here is a photo journal of my meals.
Lots of eggs, bacon, cheese, avocados, salads, chicken, some fish and to drink water and coffee. Google Bullet Proof coffee for the ingredients.
Google Keto Diet for a lot more ideas and how others have achieved their health goals by eating a low carb diet.
Hope this inspires you to take control of your health and live the good life.
Nobody is too busy, it’s just a matter of priorities.
Throw out your trash. Fake friends, Grudges, Bad habits, Doubts, Anything toxic.
If you are reading this, I dare you to dedicate the next 6 months exclusively to your goals. No announcements, just fall back and do the work.
Make a list of all people in your life.
Quickly assign them 1-2-3-4:
1) Supports you.
2) Against you.
3) Wants you to do less.
4) Nothing above fits.
Grow 1 & quit trying to make sense of 2-4.
I got this idea from reading the 10X Rule by Grant Cardone. I highly recommend you read it and take your own notes.
Looking back through my journal this morning and thinking about the people in my life and the things we’ve accomplished.
As you live life be sure to write it down and make a record of it.
Writing the story of your life is the most important book you can leave for your children.

My message is clear.
Self-discipline, mind my own business, build a life of freedom, & help others that want to help themselves.
What is your message?
The smart phone is both a gift and a curse. It was designed to be the slave but has become the master in so many ways.
The ability to have a computer in the palm of my hand that can assist in the complex daily task is amazing.
I have to remember to stay focused on what’s important and not get sucked into the negativity associated with social media.
The older I get, the more I realize I don’t want to be around drama, conflict or stress.
I just want my family to be close and to be happy.
Surround yourself with people who don’t try to suck the positivity out of you.
I love hiking with you guys!

We went to see Avengers Endgame with my brother and brother-in-law and it was great!
No spoilers here though. 🙂
I need to spend more time with Scott on purpose. Maybe I can talk him into a week long hike on the AT? 🙂
Hug your family and make time for them. Life is full of suprises and regrets are tough to live with.
