This is my “Now” page inspired by the Tim Ferriss Show Podcast I listened to with Derek Sivers. I’ll be posting periodic updates of what’s happening in my life in case my mom needed something more real-time.
Winter / 2019
It was a great end to 2019 and excited for the beginning of 2020!
Fitness: I have been continuing with my Intermittent Fasting and have tweaked my fasted period slightly to be able to extend my feed window so I can put down some more calories. My goal is to build strength over the winter so I haven’t been strict on my calorie intake and trying to eat more. This has also allowed me to extend my workouts and still feel like I have energy to perform.
I had a few goals last year to benchmark where I could improve and one of them was with a WOD (Workout of the Day) call “Karen” which is simply throwing 150 walls balls up to a 10′ line in the best time. At the end of 2018, I did this with a 14 LB Wall Ball in 8:19. One New Years Day, 2020, I retested but this time I used a 20LB wall ball vs the 14 LB one. I’m happy to say I beat my prior record by 7 seconds even with the heavier ball! This type of benchmark and goal setting continues to fuel me to work hard on my fitness and mobility in order to be active as I get older.
Podcast: I hit the goal that I wrote on my bathroom wall before the year began which was to reach 75 episodes and by the end of 2019 I launched episode 86 and I am well on my way to 100! Excited for some neat things happening with the Podcast in 2020 so stay tuned!
Children’s Book: Getting close! Luke’s First Round of Golf is starting to appear like reality and we are carved out for a mid-March launch. Initially, this was going to be something end of 2019 but for a few reasons, we decided to hold off until the spring and excited to start promoting it soon.
Dozen Months of Discovery have begun: January is a digital detox so I deleted all of my social media apps and will be off of those platforms until February. In February, I will be challenging myself to 30 straight days of stretching/mobility work for a minimum of One-Hour per day. And in March, I am learning to speak Spanish and will have a few goals in order to benchmark how much I’ve learned.
I hope you are having a great start to the new decade and figuring out ways to continue to make an impact on this world! Until next time…
