One Chip Theory

I want to share a bit of something that has helped me recently in reaching fitness goals that I think can be applied to other areas when setting goals. Matt and I started back to the gym. I set the goal to go to the gym 2 hours a day 6 days a week. Now for non gym going people, that is a HUGE task. I know for me it looked like a mountain to climb that was impossible. So I told myself, my goal is 2 hours but all I have to do is workout...

Hungry For Change

The Climb

So we start off the morning by Kyle taking me to the armory to do a crossfit type workout with a buddy of his. We get there and there are kids there learning about guns and doing basic drills. So we get to going and we flip huge tires. Then we throw a medicine ball around for awhile. I am out of shape, I’ll leave it at that. Next we get back to the house because he has to go to class. He learns his class is cancelled and asks if...
