New Year, new workings


, ,

Once in a while I would sit, ponder and start the typing process on things that at the time seemed funny, pertinent, and useful to others and at times for me.

This writing was on the wall a few years back, the writing on the wall that is.  As I read it early on.  Yet, unlike myself I gritted my teeth to bear what ever came at me for quite some time in the midst of losing contact with important people in my life that had warned me during this phase about the altercations of such decision.

I am loyal, faithful, and stubborn.  I will work for the sake of others growth and prosperity all the while not really taking into account the effect is has taken on my self, psyche, and those I love.  Yes, the ones I Love.

They were in this with me from the get go, yet as they too have expressed concern I reassured them that my decision was based on a handshake, and a man is only as good as his word and handshake.

I live with the old Honor your name, and by all means stand by your handshake and your word.  When it all comes down to it, it comes down to Honor.

On this journey I have seen many come, and go while holding onto their Honor intact.  I am one that will hold my head up high yet a bit bruised and battered.  Those in my immediate circle of trust have seen, and shared a hand, and at times a whiskey (and Guinness) to help ease some of the sting.

I Thank them dearly, and often.  My Life is in the direction of change always, and some of it not of my choosing.  Yet, I stand in the wave not as a ship without a course but as a ship steadily riding it to what God has already given my Heart to do.  For with Him, anything is possible.  With that in my Heart, and all the while guiding me via the assistance of the Mentors in my life I can not wait to see or Live the next stage.

There are no mysteries in Life.  There is only Change, and that my kind friends is where the buck stops.  It stops here, with me for it was my decision to get to this point.  Would I have made a different choice knowing what I know now, and the information back then coming to fruition?

Possibly, yet it was my choice and have no one else to point a finger at to chastise so harshly other than myself.

Handshakes among men with Honor, mean the world.  So, when you are true to your word and your word is everything then the handshake is what defines you for the rest of your life.

Your Word is Honor.

Without Honor, what is there?  There truly is no Loyalty. There will also be no Truth in your word for the rest will see right through your cloak.


Stay frosty people,



Movember with the Ladies – Week 3


Woot woot!  Ladies and Gentlemen it is always a pleasure training clients that want to excel.  This month it has been a series of incredible highs on the part of Personal Records for most that have made it a goal to improve their lifting mechanics.

At times being bogged down with a mundane task of learning that it’s ok not to stand all the way up from a lift off from the floor, then pausing can be frustrating when you’re asked to repeat it over and over again.  Can you blame me if I told you that I hold you to a Higher standard that you truly are capable of reaching if you just focus your energy on what is being taught, not on your perception of how you have been doing things all along?

Surprising as it may seem to some, not to others.  Yes, Technique and Safety in movement is always what we strive for.  Grace in movement as Mark K. so poignantly stated.  It is not enough to move, you must show proficiency and Grace.  Smooth is fast, fast is smooth.

This month we are striving on another Team Goal – That of Men’s Health.  It is important that we spread the word to the Males in our lives that mean very much to us that is important that their Health is looked after on a daily basis.  Fitness is not just relegated to the Magazine aisles, or interweb videos.

Along with that, we have garnered more team members to the Movember BDCF Team this week.  Two of which are WOMEN!!  Yes, we don’t expect you to grow a ‘stash.  Really, PLEASE DO NOT GROW ONE!  You are Cute already without it.

This month we are striving to reach another Goal of $1k dollars.  A few dollars more than last years Movember donation drive.

Would you consider joining and / or donating to an individual or the Team in General.

Than you in advance!

Movember Update 2015


, , ,

How many men can say that they are proactive when it comes to their Healthcare?  Hmmm, let’s see….1, 2, 3….

Not many, and for good reason.  We know it all, and we know we can self diagnose just about everything under the sun.

Ha!  Well, we are in the same gene pool as Einstein (he had a mustache) so we’re Mathmeticians and we’re just as smart (*sarcasm) as he was.

Well, to let you in a little secret… Men can only dream of having that much gumption to claim that such intelligence was within our reach.

When in reality we are really scratching the surface.  Let’s face it.  I’d rather be eating a burger, playing cards, reading a book, driving around the city to my next adventure.  Pulling my hair at another project that has yet to be completed.

You get the picture.  We will put off seeing a Physician until we get dragged into the ER or get bribed into going to the Doctor by our Family.

Help me get the word out once more about how important it is for Men the seek, and find help.



Movember 2015


My Movember beard shave off.  It is now 2015, November 1st.  Yes, it’s that time of year that I will begin a new mustache growing event for the month of November now known as #Movember.

Why do I do it?  Simple really, it is to make a front line effort for Men’s Health Awareness.  The likes of which are making many men more active in their lives, and bodies, and not to skip over the mental health issues mostly put aside often due to machismo.
Get knowledge, get help.  Know the truth about what kills more men in a year than anything you can imagine.

Prostate, testicular, and colon cancer wage a war on men and it is winning.  Men refuse to learn the basic information to save their lives.
Help a man out, and get involved.
Join me this year in informing men about their Health and raise funds all at once.

Bye, bye beard.  Hello mustache!  Day one!
