100K with a wounded heart…?

Hopefully not turning into one of those people who bores everyone else with never ending post’s chronicling every little detail of every workout. (To many fitness post’s by any one person flashing across my feed sometimes drives me nuts so I understand)… The reason I am always so motivated to share however, is for a few good reasons… First and foremost, my goal is to show others what is possible when they put their heart and soul into it, no matter what others, or the so called conventional medical wisdom of the day tells them. I cant imagine letting what I am doing go to waste by selfishly keeping it too myself if sharing it might help motivate even one person to effectuate change in their life, that positively effects the outcome…? How many people are currently succumbing to the effects of a chronic disease, not because they can’t make the same changes that worked for me, or lack the willingness, but instead, because they have been led to believe through what ever medium that lifestyle changes will not change the direction of their course…? Fact of the matter is, if you are suffering from a chronic, supposedly incurable, progressive disease/condition, and have been led to believe that you cant get better, you wont… I know, because I was once one of those people. However, I remain optimistic, and would like to believe that for some of these people, seeing someone else that was able to succeed at something they once thought was impossible, might alter their perception, allowing them to turn their dreams of once again living a full life, into reality. Chronic disease will win every time if you let it… But if you fight hard, fighting with all your might to learn and live a fully optimized lifestyle, one that promotes only the best of good health habits, all bets are off…. Health is a gift, a gift free for the taking for those willing to do the work.

row, row, row your boat,

Heavy exercise of any type is not a requirement to receive this gift. Even people who have no interest in working out can claim this same gift of optimal health as their own, and can spend it on their life, anyway they want… Maybe the last thing they want to do is exercise anymore then they have too… That’s perfectly ok… Please remember, what I am doing in the fitness area, is considered above and beyond anything necessary to gain optimal health, and definitely considered over the top for anyone who graduated from cardiac rehab… It is a RESULT of my health, not the cause of my health. Whatever your dreams, exercise related or not, optimal health is your best chance of turning those dreams into lasting memory’s. Not sure about you, but by the time I die, I hope to have turned all my dreams into reality/memory’s…

starting to feel it… (y)

I want to be extra clear, making this point again, because so many are confused into thinking that working out is somehow the cause of my remarkable transformation. Please make no mistakes here, without my health, I would not be working out. Again, its not the cause, its the result. So don’t be lulled into believing that you somehow need to run marathons or something to achieve your optimal health, because exercise at a higher level is in no way a requirement. My health is a product of the lifestyle I am living… The gift of health that I have been so blessed to be currently living/witnessing, is there for the taking, free to anyone else willing to do the work, even if they are already suffering chronic disease as I once was… (I’ll save the work entailment for another time, but it doesn’t involve hard physical labor)…

Pacemaker/defib…? No problem…

So at this part of the journey as I train hard, building up some fitness to help me conquer Wild Duluth 100K, I am going to share the journey/training, and show the world what someone in heart failure, with a history of heart disease, heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest, spontaneous coronary heart dissection, and once upon a time ,type 2 diabetes, can do with this “gift of health” I keep talking about.

Last but not least, for the few keto peeps following along that keep asking me “what I eat everyday”… I will start taking some pictures of the one, sometimes two, whole foods, keto meals I eat everyday, and will post them here, along with a picture of the workout I usually scribble on the board out in my garage/gym. In order to keep people from getting tired tired of seeing a new fitness/food blog flash across their feed everyday, I will just continually keep updating this blog by adding a picture of the workout, along with a picture of what I ate that day… Stay tuned…
