Arnold Said It, So It Must Be Right…

A couple of weeks ago, I watched the new Netflix documentary, Game Changers, about animal protein and such.

 

It was definitely thought provoking, but no matter what you think of the content, Arnold, who was one of the producers of the movie, had this to say about switching to more of a plant based diet:

 

‘Don’t tell someone they can’t eat meat anymore, because first off, people aren’t going to like that (they won’t form a habit around it) and they will reject it with a big F-U.  Simply ask them to see if they go one day per week without animal protein’.

 

Here we have perhaps the greatest fitness icon of all-time with some great wisdom into how habits are formed.

 

Don’t go ALL-IN, it rarely works.  Start to dabble and build a foundation, keeping your approach ‘alive’ as needed.

 

And yes, I think it’s worth the watch, as long as you have an open mind:)

Dude, You’re Crazy…

On the same night that the boys had their tub shenanigans (refer to Monday’s email), they were playing with sticks up in the street.

 

Emma was napping in my arms and the dogs were roaming around as well.

 

The sticks the boys had were a couple of feet long and as boys will be boys, they start sword fighting with the sticks.

 

Well, my natural reaction was to tell them to put their bike helmets and safety goggles on so they protected their head and eyes.

 

Somehow this came up the next morning at the gym and the Outlaw, long time friend and member, says, ‘I love it how nonchalantly you tell them to gear up for the fight while most people would have said NO stick fighting.’

 

And to be honest, that thought didn’t even cross my mind.

 

We all have our own style of how we show up in life and it’s all good.

 

Be YOU, even when it’s a little different.

2 Concepts That Will Blow Your Mind

Whenever I get the opportunity to do Mind Mapping, I usually connect the dots for clients based on simple observations.

 

Many times, its stuff that we know deep down, but once it is brought front and center, it can be mind altering.

 

Our brains are pattern recognition machines.  Once it knows and believes a pattern its very hard not to see it.

 

In today’s episode, I discuss 2 concepts, simple truths of life, that will blow your mind and allow you more self awareness.

Can You Believe It?!

Last week marked one year that we have been open in Flemington already; which is crazy!

I can remember how my brain would keep wanting to go into the anxiety gap, leading all the way up to actual opening (which was delayed numerous times).

Like all brains, if we allow them, mine kept wanting to run worst case scenarios and try and figure out things that would happen or possibly happen in the coming months.

And then, about two weeks into it, I took a breath, and said, ‘You got it this’. All the mental training I had done in my life up until then still allowed a crack in the armor. But all the mental training also allowed me to realize the error of my ways and course correct.

Self-awareness is everything. It starts between your two ears and then branches outwards from there.

The Stole My Kettlebell

About a month ago, I was up in the cul-de-sac with the boys and I happened to notice my 70 pound kettlebell was missing.

I keep it up near the curb with some old school dumbbells because to be honest, its a pain to lug up our steep driveway.

And where we live is secluded, rarely anyone is ever back there.

Well, as best as I could piece together, we had alternate garbage men the day before, they came by later than usual.  I surmised that they stole the kettlebell.

I looked into it but there wasn’t much the lady from the company could help me with being that I had no proof.

So, was I going to be bitter?  Or was I going to chuckle about it and realize it was of my own making?

You guessed it, the latter.

If you are going to laugh about something later, mind as well laugh about it in the NOW.  Life is too short.

And on the flip side, I’ll just have to be a little more creative with my at home workouts now.

Don’t Envy the Transformers

On our last date night a little over a week ago, Devon and I were talking about the brain and how change actually  happens.

(Don’t you feel sorry for her sometimes that she is stuck with my weirdness?)

I was explaining to her the difference between thinking about change and when change actually happens.  Many people think and ponder changing their life for the better for months, years, heck, even decades!

In their mind, change and transformation is this long, drawn out process that must be suffered through.

In reality, real change happens in a split fraction of a second, once you make up your mind to transform.  Will the physical manifestation happen in a split second?  Nope, but all things start in the mind first.

People that have totally transformed their lives have done so by first making up their mind to do so.  So, while you may think about changing, it will remain nothing more than that; a fleeting thought that you have every now and again.

When you finally make up your mind to transform, it’s like a lightning bolt.

You don’t have to envy those that transform into the butterflies of life, you can BE one yourself once you decide to BE.

Member of the Month: Liz Kish

Liz began training with us at Newell Strength over a year ago.

She came from another facility that she had simply outgrown and it has indeed been remarkable to see how she has grown in mind, body and spirit in that time period.

Liz even has her husband, Dennis, training with us now too and they are both a key piece to the community and family of Newell Strength.

Take a quick listen and watch as Liz explains her path at Newell Strength thus far: https://youtu.be/xKB3k_RMoJU

What Can You Learn from Falling Twice in One Morning?

Not too long ago, I went outside to get in my truck for my morning workout followed by a day of highly focused work.

I had a little trouble opening the door because they had iced over, which was my first clue that it was slippery.

The thought crossed my mind that I should watch my footing before I put my bags into the back seat.

No sooner did I close the door than I stepped on one of our railroads ties that lines the driveway and I went flying. Luckily, nothing was injured and it served as a jolt to my nervous system, which was like having coffee mixed with crack.

I did my workout, meditated and went off to my first meeting. When I pulled into that parking lot, I thought, hmmm, that looks slippery. Mind you, it was still only 8AM so the sun didn’t get to do it’s thing yet.

I stepped out of the truck and wham! This time I took and even harder fall right onto the pavement. I was nervous to look at my tongue because I knew I had bitten into it pretty good.

Luckily, it was only a cut and not a severed chunk.

I gathered myself and headed into the meeting with a bloody mouth, not as bad as it could have been.

What’s the lesson here?

I knew in both instances that it looked and felt slippery and had the thought both times, ‘I hope I don’t slip’, which is a weird thought to begin with for me.

Yet, in both cases, I slipped and fell. My brain was telling me to be extra careful and I didn’t heed the advice.

Be aware of your environments, be it the actual physical environment or the people around you. Your brain is hardwired for survival, usually the signals it is sending you are spot on.

Listen to your ‘gut’.

Your Main Problem is That You Think You Shouldn’t Have Any

Your Main Problem is That You Think You Shouldn’t Have Any

 

While eating a nice grass fed, organic cheeseburger the other night, I had a Tony Robbins documentary on in the background.

 

I have long been a HUGE fan of Robbins’ work.  ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ is one of my top 5 all-time books and was THE book that got everything started for me.

 

Devon and I even stayed at his resort in Fiji for our honeymoon 5 years ago.

 

His message is always relevant to the listener IF the student is ready to accept the truth.  And that was once again the case in his documentary when he told the crowd: You wanna know what your main problem is?  Your main problem is that you don’t think you should have any of the problems that you have.

 

Think about that for a second.  The nature of the mind is to not want problems, yet we cannot grow without problems, failure and challenge.

 

The winner’s mind seeks out and embraces problems.  If you avoid problems at all costs, you are living small.

 

Were you put here on this earth to live big or play small?

 

The purpose of life I believe, is growth.  You cannot stay the same.  You are either regressing or growing.

 

The very law of momentum in life means that it’s impossible to stay put.  Yes, you can rest for a few minutes to smell the roses, like the sherpa that is climbing the mountain.  But like the sherpa, you must decide to keep going.

 

The higher up you go, the more important it will be to rest and recharge.

 

Speaking of recharging, Dana is running an awesome special for her FST sessions for the month of December: buy 2 get one free.

 

Get something different this year for your family members.  You can even use that extra session on yourself to recharge.

 

I have tried many different types of recovery and relaxation methods, but this is by far my favorite! You can email her at dana@newellstrength.com

The Pitbull Attack on my Birthday

The Pitbull Attack on my Birthday

Two years ago, on my birthday to be exact, we took Dax and Mateen over to the dog park before going to see a movie later on that night.

Devon was 8 months pregnant with Braxton at that point.  We were already at the dog park for about a half hour when I noticed a pit bull acting very strange.

And after talking to the owner, I knew why.  The owner was aloof and didn’t even know the background of this dog that he had rescued one month earlier.

I do hate that pit’s get a bad rap, they are beautiful dogs and usually the ones that you see on the news are part of a cultural problem, not the actual breed.

Anywho, we watched as the pit spearheaded another mut right in the side for no good reason.

That’s when I said to Devon that we should start making our way to the truck.  We had already been there long enough and I didn’t like having this wild card near my pups.

Now, keep in mind, stupidly, I had flip flops on because it was a very hot, late summer day.  Mateena made one more bee line to go mark her territory as we were walking towards the gate.

I turned around and saw the pit running at her. There was also a rot that had just arrived, making his way over to the very same area.

Mateena knows herself as silly as that sounds.  I’d argue that she knows herself better than most people.  She knows that she is a loner and that she doesn’t like being in a crowded area.

And like any dog, she reacts if put in a situation that she doesn’t like.  The pit went up behind her and started sniffing her BE-hind.  Mateena turned and did this little chomp she does to let other dogs know to back off.

As I saw this unfolding, I was already running as fast as I could over to the spot because I knew what was about to happen.  The pit reacted to her chomp and clamped down on her skull.  Thank God I got there in time to kick the pit in the head a few times, dislodging his grip on her.

Stupidly, once again (man this was a dumb day by me all around), I stayed between the pit and Mateena and the rot that was now starting to get worked up.  I didn’t think about what it could have done to me.  I reacted and put my family first.

Luckily, I was very aware of my surroundings that day.

I knew the environment and I could ‘feel’ the energy that was in the air.

You can do the same thing, not with a pit bull of course but in your home, at your job, etc.

Environments are triggers.  The brain is always scanning your environments.  You are either going to be at the mercy of your environments or you are going to master your environments.

People often are stressed out of their minds because of their very mismanagement of their environments.

Well, lucky for you, Dana told me it’d be okay to run a special for her Fascial Stretch Therapy service for the holiday season.  For the month of Decemeber, Dana is offering a buy 2, get 1 free deal.

I am already booking a bunch for myself and Devon.

If you are overly stressed, tight in your lower back and regular old massage isn’t doing the trick, then shoot me an email and I will set you up with Dana.  For inquiring minds, if you aren’t sure what FST is, Dana shows you in a quick video here: https://youtu.be/mSUTCEkl3lM
