Avoiding Hitting the Wall : Staying Driven

shutterstock_91861610

So, in the midst of releasing my second fitness iBook, and starting my second novel, I have also picked up learning mobile development. Taking on the challenge to learn both Objective-C and Swift is no small or humble task; it can be hellish. So, you would suspect my focus on my own fitness to falter. In a strange way, staying this busy actually reminds me to hit the gym.

Crazy talk! How can that be!? Everyone knows you cannot workout at a gym when you’re in school and/or working full time. Well, I do it. Anyone can do it. It just takes one thing. This is important. One word: DRIVE.

Eating right, and remembering to sleep is sometimes difficult when your mind is swarming with UI Viewcontrollers, Extrapolations, JSON, and the like; ( and we won’t even go into all the stuff I’m learning in my Torts course for my legal studies!) but somehow, someway, it works. I have found that working out keeps my sleep more regular, whether I like it or not, and this keeps my physical condition top notch. It also keeps me hungry. Everyone knows studying rigorously can kill the appetite. Without question. Working out keeps this in check, as well.

Yes, it seems all is well. I am knocking out Torts with straight A’s, catching integers and variables like a pro in xCode, while maintaining a productive routine in the weight room. Still, there is that old age risk of hitting THE WALL. Hitting the peak. Its scary. My key to avoiding this horrible crash is to walk my dog throughout the day, and step away from everything for 30 minutes at a time. It does wonders.

And so, my food is about done, and I’m ready for the day. The adventure continues!

Healthy Breakfast!

Goooooood Morning Saturday!

So, like me and anyone who works out or lives a healthy life, you are going to make a nice breakfast. Eggs will no doubt be in the mix. Like any morning, you have scrambled, or fried. To be adventurous, after the hundredth morning, you try adding some pepper. Eventually you graduate to fresh diced chives and sautéed gourmet mushrooms. Yeah, awesome, for sure. But WHY stop there??

No, the adventure continues. There is hope for the “boring egg syndrome”. Here it is, my friends, an answer. Give it a read, give it a try, and let me know what ya think!
