Weight 344.2 (down 3 pounds)
Blood Sugars 107 (wow I haven't had sugars this low in years in the mornings)
Book finished: "Emergence" by Derek Rydall (excellent, highly recommend)
Car audio started: Jim Butcher's 1st book from the Codex Alera series "Furies of Calderon". Loving it so far. This is way different from The Dresden Files books, but so far it is really good. Who knew that you could take a challenge from a fan about two lame subjects and write 6 books about it and have it become a best seller. (Pokemon and The Lost Roman Legion. And just to be fair, it was lame in the fan's eyes)
- Keto fried chicken - mmmmm...so good.
- Keto riced cauliflower chicken soup. Chicken and rice! OMG this is so good.
- Keto ice cream - heavy whipping cream, with strawberries and Splenda. Mmmmm mmm good.
Starting tomorrow morning: The Miracle Morning 30 Day Challenge. Yep, it's time. I've put this off long enough. I just watched a keynote by Hal Elrod that was his first one back after going through chemotherapy. You know, it gave me that kick in the pants of "what the hell am I waiting for." Lots of great takeaways. Here is the video if you want to watch. He teaches the whole method of The Miracle Morning in this hour and shares his story. He is an amazing inspiration.
So while Hal teaches the method here, I highly recommend getting his book for a lot of in-depth information on the Life S.A.V.E.R.S. and how to get the most out of them. I've read through it twice now. Something I don't normally do with a book. I may go back and reference it from time to time, but I rarely reread something.
Starting early tomorrow morning (5 am is my plan) I'll be doing
- S.ilence - 10 minutes of meditation with my Calm app.
- A.ffirmations - 10 minutes of affirmations with one of my Paraliminals recordings.
- V.isualization - 10 minutes of visualizing my weight loss and health recovery journey.
- E.xercise - 10 minutes of stretching and some form of exercise to get my heart rate up a little.
- R.eading - 10 minutes of reading from Jon Vroman's "The Front Row Factor".
- S.cribing - 10 minutes writing in my Diaro journal.
This will be the 60 minute routine (maybe more) to begin the day. I'll report back in here on my blog as I go along with my weight loss and TMM (The Miracle Morning) journey.
Also, listen to Hal's podcast. It's one of the best podcasts on the internet. The diversity that he covers with subjects on success and self development is part of the reason I undertook this journey I'm now on. I wouldn't have heard of Jon Vroman or Derek Rydall if I hadn't downloaded some of these podcasts to listen to on my commute. I listen to podcasts in the morning on the way in and I listen to fiction on Audible in the afternoon drive to unwind in what is sometimes 2 1/2 hour traffic home.
Buy the book. Try it out. At least watch the video above.
Musical inspiration for the week. Lori Diamond & Fred Abatelli - "OM". I love this song. I did a video for them for this song that you can watch below. Great artists, excellent album and just the most kind and loving couple I've ever met in the indie market. I used to play them on my radio show and now I listen to them at least once a day.
Have a peaceful and positive week everyone!
