It’s been a real interesting week. After being approached by three separate parties wanting to contribute to me being a full time internet marketer and pro blogger for hire, I’ve got a renewed enthusiasm for projects like BellevueBusinessJournal.com and Eastside Entrepreneurs and a new excitement for my pet project Luxury Fitness Fun.
LuxuryFitnessFun.com has been born out of my desire to really design a life, rather than work at a J.O.B. 9-5 M-F. In a way it was also made possible by the economy. Up until recently (and maybe even now depending on the compensation) I would have been very happy to be able to land a job and get a paycheck. I’ve basically been unemployed for most of the past 4+ years and knew early on that I did not like it. Still the same, it seems like no matter how many contacts I have, positions I apply for or resumes I send out, I simply cannot even get an interview. Guess I should just chalk it up to my appearance as The Hair Farmer and call it a day – and in many ways I guess I already have.
For way too long it was very easy just to feel sorry for myself, then I realized that I am not alone and that there are many other people in the same boat. Over the past couple of years I have sure noticed A LOT more guys dropping kids off at school and the gyms seem to be a lot more crowded during the day than they used to be in the good old days … So knowing that other people are in the same situation somehow made it a little bit easier to cope with, but not a whole lot. Knowing that there are other people and their families out there hurting was actually of zero comfort at all.
I finally woke up and realized that I have to take action – more, smarter, more, measured, targeted, more ACTION. Since I’ve been so conveniently unemployed, it has been much easier for me to be involved in a “Clean Eating Project”. I’ll be writing a lot more about it under Fitness at LuxuryFitnessFun.com in the near future, but basically I’m a little over half way on the 90 day commitment to myself to have a drastic and radical shift in everything I consume. After only 50 days I have noticed a HUGE difference in my body makeup and I have learned oh so much. It’s amazing how much fat and sugar most people (especially us Americans) put into our bodies each and every day. The first fitness “secret” I have discovered is that consistent consumption of the right types and amounts of food and drink are CRITICALLY important. I emphasize “CRITICALLY’ because I believe that nobody can be as healthy as possible unless and until they convert their total nutrition intake to that of Clean Eating.
