Fitness and Diet to live.

Quote of the Day; "Eat to Live Not Live to Eat"
By Benjamin Franklin

          Benjamin Franklin is one of the United States Founding fathers. While he did not hold the highest position in our government he did have a huge impact on the newly created government. Most people remember him as a political figure. However he was also an inventor and a humanitarian. He is credited with the quote of the day.

          Many of us have done this. We celebrate holidays with food and drink and often eat foods that are not the healthiest for us as well as over eating as well. Consuming too much food as well as forgoing exercise for the day of the feast. Now understand I am not saying we should not enjoy these celebrations however we can still be smart about it. Consuming the delectable treats in moderation and still plan our exercise at some point in the day, whether it be a brisk walk or something more intense.

          I am guilty as well of the scenario of over eating at an event. When this happens my body kind of does a little revolt against me. The next day I feel sluggish and over tired. If I had simply enjoyed without over eating it would have been a more enjoyable experience.

          Eating to live is just that, looking at food as a fuel not an activity. Your car uses gas as fuel to propel you to your destination. Food is the fuel to enable you to enjoy physical activity. Now if you put bad fuel in your car it will be sluggish and not perform well. Your body is the same way.

TIP of the day: Take a daily look at your eating habits each evening and ask yourself did you, “Eat to Live or Live to Eat.” And make your adjustments from there.

"Wesley (Jim) Kipp" 5 Time Bench Press National Champion

Quote: Hard work beats talent, when talent does not work hard! by Tim Notke

   Tim was a High School basketball coach. He is credited with the quote above. Having helped coach some of my children's recreation sports teams I have seen this often. Some really talented kids, who just did not want to work hard. 

    I look at myself this way currently, I have been called a talented lifter and when I hear this I think to myself, OK, now I just have to work hard.

I have been very fortunate to have been on 4 USA Powerlifting World teams. I have won one World Championship and been fortunate to have acquired one World Record in my Wife’s home country of Brazil. I am a Masters 2 lifter and compete in both Masters and Open divisions. 
   Well I am working hard and I am training to bring home the Gold Medal, my second World Championship next May in Lithuania. I will be competing in the International Powerlifting World Bench-press Championships 2017. With talent and hard work I know I can bring home the gold and maybe even set another World Record.  

    The fact that most people never get a chance to represent their country in an athletic event is not lost on me. I feel very blessed.

    Traveling as part of  USA Powerliftings World Team can get very expensive. This is an amateur sport and there is no money to win. Just the feeling you get when you stand on that platform with the National Anthem playing.

    I was talking to my neighbor Tim, and he put together a YouTube Video that I will share with you all.
