  1. Jon

    your blog is the best thing to help keep me motivated. I guess fall in all the categories health, vitality , performance ,ego (without probalby realizing or it may look like that to others) and apearance I think I link bodyfat and being more musclular with being healthy. As for changing my number one priority is being a good father and husband so since I work a lot and get home late I have started to workout at 4:00AM so when I get home I can help my wife around the house and with my daughters school work. I have also gotten my daughter to eat more fruit and vegatables so she is 6. I still try to let her be a kid but I am constnatly showing her that exercise and good food will help her in the long run. And I am constantly telling people about eating more plant based and it starts some intresting topics among people. And I am really pumped up about going to your worksops in nyc. but i wont be able to make the plant based workshop.


  2. I'm doing pretty good on the paths but really gonna focus on nutrition now. I tend to falter more here than in either training or restoration. Overall I'm eating well but the transgressions are making an impact.

    I'm doing this for health and vitality not ego. Couldn't care less about that. Trying to lead by example and provide the guidance towards the MBG path when people ask what I'm doing. Keeping it simple. Working hard.

  3. hey john and brad, man that sounds good what you are both doing. john man you are so busy and yet still do your best to help others eat healthier and exercise too. brad i like what you said too, keep it simple is huge!!
    john man i am glad you can make it to see us in nyc, it will be fun for sure...brad just came to the LA seminar and it was alot of fun:) love what both of you guys said. keep it simple, enjoy your family and friends:) good words my friends good words:) i'll keep doing my best for you all too:)
