In a Blink, Our Shed Exploded

A week and a half ago, I received a message that our driveway was going to be getting paved in a day or two.

That is a story in and of itself as the deal almost fell through.  Anyhow, I had to prep the area and move some stuff.  

One of the big things to move was this wooden platform that weighed a ton.  I used the chainsaw to cut it in two, and it still weighed a ton.  

Devon was able to help me with the smaller of the two pieces on day one.  

On that Tuesday night, I went out with Brax to assess.  I was able to drag the heavier part of the platform and get that out of the way.

Which meant all we had to move was a decent sized plastic shed.  It was emptied out, but the thing was that I could not balance it myself and lower it at the same time.  Suzy came out with Tank and I instructed her on what to do.  Basically I told her just balance it once I get it up off the ground while I run around to the other side.

Well, I lift it up, she holds for the briefest of seconds and then let go.  She saw a snake underneath and went into pure freeze mode.

I watched in slow motion as the shed proceeded to topple.  I was hoping it was going to stay put but nope, it continued all the way down our mini-cliff until it hit a tree and shattered into pieces. 

But wait, there’s more….

There happened to be a type of furry bee nest there too (not a bumble bee).  As you can see, Brax got stung on the eye.

Nope, not over yet….

There were also very large, black ants.  Colty aka Tank, being the bug guy that he is, went to pick some up.  BAM!  Those little suckers bit him good.  He had a big swollen welt on his chest and on one of his hands, which swelled so much he couldn’t’ close his hand.

Geez, who would have thought moving a plastic shed could be so dangerous? 

But, as Suzy reminded me, ‘If you’re going to laugh about it later, mind as well laugh about it now’.  

A memorable moment for sure, one that we will be telling the kids about long into the future.

P.S-My new book is finally out on Amazon.  It’s all things fasting, from my point of view.  If you want a world class tutorial and ‘how to’ with my system of fasting, then you pick up a copy of  the book.  And if you like it, please leave a review.  https://www.amazon.com/Panda-Diet-Unconventional-Approach-Lasting/dp/0578687372/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=kyle+newell&qid=1592831921&s=books&sr=1-2

 

P.P.S-Now that we are taking new clients once again, we are opening the doors for July to 12 new trial members.  This is just what the doctor ordered for you if you’ve been locked in, with little outdoor time, not enough physical activity and not enough fun.  You can apply for a spot at this link and Coach Dana will be reaching out to you.  https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/jumpstart




Tank Was Bitten Three Times in a Week

Two Sundays ago, Devon was on a river trip with Brax.  I was home, Emma was napping, so Tank and I went out to do some lawn cutting and yard work.  

While I was cutting the grass, he was searching for bugs, his favorite pastime. 

I stopped to hear what he was trying to tell me and it was: ‘Dad, there’s a bumblebee!’

He went to pick up it up and bam!  Sucker stung him.  It wasn’t a bumblebee, it was a wasp.  His finger swelled pretty good and he left the stinger in until Suzy’s gentle touch got home.

Anyhow, about 2 hours later, Devon was home, so Brax and Tank and myself went over to our neighbor’s to do some target practice.  Not more than 20 minutes there and Tank gets bitten on his shoulder by our neighbor’s dog.  It was over the shirt, but a nasty bite.  

Poor kid, but he rebounded within a minute, no more tears.

Finally, he was bitten by a black beetle a few days later.  

And the moral?  He still has no fear of the aforementioned critters/dog.  Fear is what might go wrong in the future.  Kids live in the NOW.  

It’s a beautiful thing.

How to Gain Clarity in an Uncertain Time

Most people go through life and have no idea how their brain actually operates.

 

Lucky  for you, it is one of my areas of expertise, also known as Mind Mapping.

 

There are three things that cause the brain to go into ‘threat mode’.

 

When things are going too fast, too slow or when there is a lack of clarity.

 

In today’s lesson, I dive deep into it.  This was a powerful one and one that was sent out by some of our clients to their sales and business teams, nationwide.

A Good Ole Blue Collar American Workout

A year ago, Pat Fox started to train at Newell Strength.

 

Like anyone, he had to feel out the community and environment.

 

And look at him now, down 80 pounds and wearing an American Flag romper the traditional Saturday morning workout.

 

Success in fitness is largely about enjoyment, having fun and being around other like-minded people that embrace YOU as a unique person.

 

Life is made up a small conversations and memories such as the above photo.

 

Stop waiting for the perfect time….

 

Don’t be afraid to step outside the box and have some fun….

 

You got this.

Do You Remember When…

I want you to think of the last time you faced adversity.
Your options were to let that seed grow into a garden of weeds or to reframe ‘it’.
Life is your classroom, learn from it.
In that moment, what could you take from the lesson that life was serving up?
If you just got hot and angry, you didn’t learn and surely that lesson will come your way again.
That is one of the patterns of life.
So, ask yourself, ‘what was great about that problem or the current challenge that I am facing?’

What Are You Expecting?

Devon and I have been married for over 8 years now.
In that time, there have been homes, businesses, dogs, kids, surgeries and the list goes on.
Like you, life is made up of memories.
Heading into this month, I was expecting nothing but to afford myself the time to be present at home during Emma’s first month in this world.
I wasn’t expecting to get a lot of ‘work’ done or to start any new ventures.  I wanted to be present, that was my only expectation.  And I’d say I have succeeded.  I had no expectations of outcomes and therefore, disappointment of any sort could not exist.
All of our disappointments come from expectations not met.
So, what happens when your only expectation is BE within the flow of life?

Everett Holt, Man on a Mission

Everett was quite literally the very first person to reach out to me way back before we opened in Flemington to inquire about membership.
He had been tipped off by a friend and was patiently waiting, even as had a delay to work through.
Yet, he kept in touch and stayed true to his word.  Which is why it is  so awesome to see that he was named member of the month in Flemington for the month of July!
Everett is a great father and husband and has made quite the physical and mental transformation.  We love having him as THE founding member in Flemington!
Enjoy his story here and thanks for inspiring so many Everett! https://youtu.be/PK6XqecFBwU

Amazing Discoveries From My Old Notebook

In my office shed, I have notebooks dating back a decade.
In those notebooks, I have notes from my thoughts, books, DVDs and seminars.  I was and remain a serious student of life and my craft.
I fully realize that the 10,000 hour rule does apply and I chuckle when people of the next generation think they can short cut their way to world class expertise.
Anyhow, for this episode, I decided to go back through one of those old notebooks and shoot from the hip.  And there are some gems I share with you.

What Are You Training For?

Emma Taylor was born roughly a month ago at this time.
And being that she was our third child, I had an idea of what was to come.
Which is why my fitness goal for the prior 90 days was to be in the best dad shape that I have ever been in.
I knew that my energy was going to have to be supreme, which was why I was aiming to get my body fat and weight to a certain range.
Yet, it is easy to slip into the external measurement game.  Our intentions can morph into what we perceive other people will think of how we look or what they will think of our numbers and so on.
As long as I have been in this game, it still tries to sneak up on me, despite my awareness of it.
Listen, you train for life.  You need to have the energy and confidence to show up however you need to show up to be your best self at home, in your relationships and at work.
If something, your program, is detracting and taking you down the wrong path and your energy is suffering, then you are on the wrong path.
Remember, the purpose of any goal is to increase your level of happiness.  And part of being happy is having great energy.
Lastly, no one cares what you look like! So stop trying to convince yourself that that is your real motivation.  Do some soul searching….
