“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” – Bradley Whitford

I’m going to give you some “inside information” about how I tailor my life. From all of the readings I have done, I believe there are four areas of life: Physical, Mental, Spiritual, and Social. Going forward I’ll be discussing my efforts in each of these areas, along with my goals. Then you can keep me honest!

Before getting into that (below), I’d like to say that you will only get the things you want in your life by going after them in a thoughtful and systematic way. ACT! You won’t get anything if you sit on your duff and dream about it. You have to get up, get moving, and do something! Before you commence work in any area, however, really understand why YOU want to do it. Never pursue a goal that someone else is doing or someone wants you to do. You pursue the goals you want to but understand why you want to achieve it. The WHY is really important. The WHY will help you pay the price your goal requires.

Physical:

My goal is to get my body fat down to 15% by year’s end.

My last weigh-in was this morning: 225 lbs.

I have a scale that I use to calculate body fat. It says: 36%

I just finished the Kris Gethin 8-week Hardcore trainer yesterday and lost 20 lbs. I weighed 245 lbs when I started and probably upward of 45% body fat.

This week will be a maintenance week to recover a bit and then it’s off to the races next week with another program. This one will be another Kris Gethin workout called 4 weeks to shred. I wanted to change up the routine a bit and this workout will do nicely.

Until I hit my target, my workouts will be concentrating on either weight loss workout routines or transformation routines.

Wish me luck!

Mental:

My goal is to finish 12 online courses by year’s end. I am at 6 so far. I finished the Udemy Non-fiction writing course last week. Still working on Public Policy and Learning How to Learn.

I also want to read 36 books this year. I’m at 17 so far.

Spiritual:

My goal here is to finish my discourse by year’s end, read my Bible daily, Meditate/Pray twice a day, and keep a dream and gratitude journal. All of this is on track so far.

I am participating in a workshop in Canada, another workshop here in Michigan in September, and already served on a panel and gave a talk at our spiritual center in February.

Social:

My goals are to build my readership to 500 by year’s end. I’m currently at 368! If you know anyone that would benefit from my blog, please send them my way!

I am also going to a comedy show with my Sister this weekend in Detroit and enjoy interacting with folks at both gyms I go to (Planet Fitness and Cutting Edge).

Well, that’s my week folks! I hope you have a terrific week!

Until next time…

Dave
