So that’s it. I tried it for two weeks and had good results, but decided to go back to a more balanced diet, that includes meat and dairy products. There are however, some lessons I learned along the way.
I have been doing some research on the benefits of going vegan. I have to be honest, it’s not about the animals or the environment, it’s all about my health. So now, I’m trying it. I’d love to do this until Thanksgiving, but I decided to do a two week test and see how I feel. So far, I have had some shocking results. Read on for my thoughts, as I begin week 2.
I am still here. I just finished a summer vacation, followed by some “catch up” time at work. I have also been staying healthy. Working out and eating properly. I’m currently down about 17 lbs. I want to focus on how I “feel” today.
I have to be honest. I have been living very well lately. Very clean. It’s almost scary what can happen when you decide to stop destructive behavior and focus on positivity and health. It doesn’t take that long and it’s pretty simple. Here’s what that looks like for me. (No, I’m not the guy in the picture, but I feel how he looks)
Funny how life throws you curve balls. Little unexpected events that make you re-think everything. If you follow this blog, you probably noticed that I haven’t been posting as much content lately. The reason is simple. I’ve been busy doing a personal inventory, as a result of my hospital stay. It has led me to some startling revelations.
So, I have had a crazy past two weeks, which has led to me not writing any original content. Long story short, I went to the emergency room with an irregular heartbeat.

I’ll try my best to tell the story. Continue reading “I haven’t been writing because I was in the hospital.”
A repost, but one I dearly needed to revisit. It can happen to the best leaders. They want results. They want their team to win. They want perfection. But, is that necessary? Is it even possible? At what cost does a leader pursue perfection? Here’s 5 reasons why being obsessed with perfection is not good leadership. And trust me, I need this list more than anyone, as I’ve had to learn this lesson the hard way. It basically put me in the hospital this week…
My wife unknowingly helped me realize something the other day. I have been suffering from headaches, which directly affect my ability to influence and be effective on any level. Normally when this happens I say it’s because of a lack of sleep or I ate a sugary snack (usually ice cream) right before bed. I then pound Motrin until the headache is gone, which can take a whole day sometimes. My wife asked me a very simple question that was so basic, I was ashamed and grateful at the same time. Ashamed that I didn’t think of it, but grateful that she did. Continue reading to see her question.
