Being the best.

So it occurred to me today that I have taken a very, just let it happen, zen approach to everything.  And surprise surprise it really hasn’t worked. I seem to be spinning my wheels and getting no where. So I came to the conclusion that if I want to succeed I need to have the goal of being the best. The best filmmaker, artist, community leader and person that I possibly and be. Starting here in Tampa; I am going to first concur the bay area.  I also have been letting life passing me by for various reasons which I will share latter. I want a full and rich life. That is going to require a lot of changing on my part.

I know what is required to succeed. I think most people know. But it is always a matter of doing it. Most people, I think the lack action and work required to be successful, or at least for me it has been. And I can’t do that anymore. I have to many great opportunities in front of me, and I have the talent, intellect and creativity to succeed and become the person I want to be. It is only a matter of how much work am I willing to put into it.

So taking action toward my fintess.

So I wrote today about my about my first rule of fashion is being fit, and after that I looked into the YMCA down the street. It is an excellent facility with numerous types of classes such as yoga, tai chi, cardio classes, aqua aerobics, and so on. They have a great gym and swimming pool, and in addition to that they have personal trainers which is great since I want to get into a routine and achieve my fitness goals. But look, you do not have to join a gym, that is if you can’t, you can learn off the interwebs about getting in shape. Here is a great YouTube page to go to Six Pack Shortcuts      Mike Chang is  great and I think you’ll like him.

In addition to that, since I am joining a gym it is time to quit smoking. It is something I really have to do for all the obvious reasons. So yeah join a gym if you can and do it. You feel and look great and your clothes will look great on you which is one of the goals in being fashionable.

 

 

Fashion tip number 1, Get in shape!!!

The first fashion tip I have is  to get into shape.  Toned muscle looks way better than fat. You look healthy and clothes look and  fit better on you. I am in the same boat. I have a little gut and need to put on some muscle and tone up.  I need to loose about 10 to 15 pounds of fat and gain about 25 to 25 pounds of muscle.  So lets all commit to it. Yes it is hard to get started, but if you make something you just do it will be a lot easier.

Personal hells

The past 3 1/2 weeks have been emotionally tough. A lot has gone on and a lot of pain to go with it.  I am trying to keep my head and heart up. Stiff upper lip and all that bullshit.  One minute I will see the good and wonderful in my life and the next wanting to swallow a shotgun. Remember the bullet never lies.  I will get through this. That I am sure. After surviving this past year I am pretty sure I will; however you never know, I might just say fuck it and go check out what is on the other side. And before you all start this more to life bullshit, just stop, I don’t want to hear it nor do I care. Save it for someone who wants to hear it, because I sure as fuck don’t

So things to come.  I am really throwing myself into a series that I am developing. My goal is to get it picked up by a network and if that fails, which it most likely will, I will turn it into a web series. I love the long form story. I have a lot of research to do. and many books to read along with numerous articles to cover. On top of that take a  crash course into screenwriting.  I will get the hang of it, that I have no doubt. Plus, I have good people around me who can give me good notes and advice.

Now if I don’t swallow a shotgun, here is what else is on my plate: I am going to starting writing on a regular basis. This is something I should have been doing years ago, but didn’t, thus wasting my talents. I also am getting back into making art. It has been over a decade since I did any actual work, and there is a lot that  is in my head and it is time to start making it.

I am also getting into shape which in itself might kill me before I have the chance.  I really need to get into shape.  Along with comes meditation. It is something I have to do but am terrified of doing. I am afraid pain will come p0uring out of me. I think I am afraid to feel certain things. Certain degrees of pain.

I also just need to become the person I want and need to become. I have so far to go if I am to get there. I do not know who if anyone will be with me on that journey if I take it.  I just know I need to take it and that is the hardest part.

 

till next time.

 

 

Combat shape

Someone asked when I posted my goals for this year “what is combat shape?”  Good question.

To me it if full body shape: Upper lower and core.  And they need to be very strong. But it is also about endurance. That is one thing that you need if you  are in the 82nd, Ranger Batt or  an operator.

Strength to do what ever task is before you and the ability to go and go and go.  That is why we do 12+ mile road marches.  That is why we train so damn hard in the worst conditions. That is why we suffer so Goddamn much.  That is why in 2 degree weather,  were training today at Fort Bragg or  or 40 degrees with heavy downpour. To build up endurance.

I am going to be carrying a 50 lb around my neighborhood like a crazy person. It is a complete body workout plus I am building up endurance.

I hope that answers your question.
