The Four Hour Body

So I’ve started reading a book called The Four Hour Body by Tim Ferriss. He’s kind of a focus point of mine right now because I have seen him on a few shows and started listening to his podcast lately and he makes a lot of sense. So this post will be half experiment and half book review.

According to the 4HB there are 5 rules to follow for the diet.

  1. Avoid white carbs
  2. Eat the same meals over and over
  3. Don’t drink calories
  4. Don’t eat fruit
  5. Take one day off per week.

So I’m gonna give it a go. Another thing he says in the book is that if you make it public then you’ll follow through so I’m going to be posting about it. Every Monday I will post measurements in the areas that he has laid out to measure and every Saturday which is my cheat day I will take pictures of all my glorious cheat meals and post them together at the end of the day.

 My first breakfast. 3 egg whites, one whole, egg and some ham.

See you Monday for that first measurement post.

Sparkle on!

Creative Live

So remember in that first post that I posted a few seconds ago how I said one of my goals was to share cool stuff on here. Well…here’s the first one.

It’s a site called Creative Live. I stole their description straight from the website because who can tell you about the company better than the company itself.

CreativeLive empowers you to unleash your potential by bringing the world’s greatest experts directly to you, live. Featuring workshops in photography, video, design, business, audio, music, crafting, and software training, CreativeLive unlocks previously closed doors by making dynamic education accessible to everyone.

Anyone can watch our live online workshops — for free — and interact with instructors in real time. The future of education is interactive, free, and live now. Join us.

I first heard about this site from listening to the Tim Ferriss Show Podcast. And I started listening to the podcast from seeing Tim Ferriss on the Jimmy Falon show. He was promoting his new book Tools of Titans. I’m currently working on reading some of his books so hopefully I’ll get to smash another blog goal soon and post a review for you. Anyway, I could talk a lot more about it but you should probably just check it out for yourselves. I have a special link for you below.

Sparkle on!

Starting Over

So I’ve decided my first post should be about starting over. Starting over is not an easy thing to do. I say this from experience. I’ve tried it several times you see. In my short 28 years on this planet I’ve been a lot of places in the pursuit of starting over and getting it right. Here’s the thing though. I don’t think there is ever a clean do over in life. Or at least that’s what I’ve come to discover. I suppose if you did the whole “fake your death and start another life” thing it might be possible but as far as I can tell people are an accumulation of their life experiences. It doesn’t matter if you “start over.”

I have a few goals for this blog and I’m not gonna lie I’m not a great blogger because I forget for extended periods sometimes but we’re gonna give it a go once again. Maybe if I include my goals here I’ll work a little harder at them. (ha ha very funny. good try)

GOALS for this Blog

  1. Write at least one post a month
  2. Make one thing and post about it per month
  3. Let people know about the cool stuff I find (there are already a few here.)
  4. Read and review a book once every three months. (I’ll do my best but life man)
  5. Share something about myself occasionally.

Well that’s a good start. The fun part is that I’m just doing this for me at this point. I guess if I grab anyones attention along that way that’s just a bonus and maybe they’ll like what I’m saying.

Sparkle on!
