Hope you are having a great Monday. Regardless to who you were routing for in yesterday’s Super Bowl, it was actually a pretty good game. I learned quite a few lessons from the game on a life and business level.
The first would be to never take your foot off the gas…even when you think you are at a dominant advantage/position.
The next would be to play to your strength. You want to include variety as it directly relates to obtaining or achieving your goal. Never do you want to do something new, or out of character that jeopardizes the objective. Watching the game last night, I saw first hand what trying something out of character from Seattle on the 3 yard line with 40 seconds left in the game could do.
Play To Your Strength – Marshawn Lynch – not taking anything away from the result of the play of the Patriot defense….they did a hell of a job coming up with the interception but really?? A Slant route from the 3? Why not utilize “Beast Mode” and try to pound it in? One timeout left, at least you give yourself another opportunity if need be.
When you have an opportunity to see your goal and accomplishment is within your grasp…play to your strength. Now is not the time to deviate from what brought you this far. This small factor is what determines many successes versus defeats.
Variety – Read Option – to my count, the Seahawks ran a total of 1….that’s right ONE read option play the entire game. Would that have also been an optional play at the end of the game? Still allows you to control and dictate the pace at the end. Maybe this is why I am a fitness professional and not an offensive coordinator.
Ensure that you provide controlled Variety – meaning you are educated on the possibilities and understand what adjustments may be require for you to still be able to accomplish your goals without suffering a setback. While life does prevent obstacles, it is important to remember your “Why.” Why you do what you do…why are you willing to battle so hard and believe in what most can not see? Remain flexible but true to yourself -ALWAYS.
Think of it this way: 40 seconds from victory…play to win and nothing else.
Congratulations is in order for the New England Patriots on their victory.
Thanks For Reading,
Hey whats going on?
I’m super pumped today because we’re one day closer to Super Bowl 49! Adding to my excitement is an article from a very talented (and lovely might I add!) writer and entrepreneur Stephanie Rossettos about shoes for fitness. You can check it out here – Steps Shoes Stand
Stephanie is a testament to dedication and belief in one’s self. The power of “I Can, I Will, I Must” is evident in her daily actions of being the very best that she can be. Stephanie is one example of outstanding people that understand the level of sacrifice that comes with great expectations.
I challenge you this Thursday to cast away any doubts and fears and become the best you can be. No matter what your situation, it can be done if you want it bad enough.

Have an Awesome Day!
One of the hardest things about living with Type 2 Diabetes is that it is largely a self-managed illness. What that means is that as a person with Diabetes you’re going through the day, making decisions about your food, your activity, how you handle the stresses in your life, and all of those things affect your blood sugar today and ultimately your future health. There’s no question that there’s a lot to do as you go through the day to take care of Diabetes. It’s not easy; it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
One of the reasons why education is so important in Diabetes is because of these many decisions that you need to make. So the more you know, the wiser the choices you can make, and ultimately the better your outcomes will be with Diabetes. It’s very common to have powerful emotions at the time of diagnosis, and in fact, the majority of patients experience these kinds of feelings, such as fear, anger, being overwhelmed, guilt–all of those things are very common.
One of the most important things to recognize is that you’re not alone. Two very important things that you can do: first, find somebody in your life who is a good listener, who can be a sounding board for you and a support for you.
Second, be willing to understand the underlying cause and effect of diabetes. There are resources available in your community, in your neighborhood, a fitness professional such as myself that has a personal as well as a working history with both type 1 and 2 diabetes, a social worker, a support group. All of those things are available in many communities and can be a major help in dealing with this very important side of managing Diabetes.
Diabetes truly is a family disease because the diagnosis in many ways affects everyone.
Every member of the family can think about being supportive in terms of making similar lifestyle changes, eating the same food, being more active, being there to exercise with the person. So being a support is more than just an emotional support; it’s also being a lifestyle support.
There’s no question that there is a lot to do to manage Diabetes. It’s not easy and it can be overwhelming. All of the major organizations that stand to profit from those living with diabetes would want you to: “Take it one step at a time, one day at a time, and you’ll get there”…or you die from complications, either way donations will continue to pour in, big pharmaceutical companies will continue to cause the unreasonable suffering of individuals.
Why? The single most important thing you should know as a diabetic is:
There is no Money in the Cure for diabetes….the money is in the medication!

How’s it going?
I wanted to give you a basic concept known as the ABCs of Diabetes.
A1C, Blood pressure, and Cholesterol. This can help lower your chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or other diabetes problems.
A for the A1C test (A-one-C).
The A1C is a blood test that measures your average blood sugar level over the past three months. It is different from the blood sugar checks you do each day.
Why is it important?
You need to know your blood sugar levels over time. You don’t want those numbers to get too high. High levels of blood sugar can harm your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, feet, and eyes.
What is the A1C goal?
The A1C goal for many people with diabetes is below 7. It may be different for you. Ask what your goal should be.
B for Blood pressure.What is it?
Blood pressure is the force of your blood against the wall of your blood vessels.
Why is it important?
If your blood pressure gets too high, it makes your heart work too hard. It can cause a heart attack, stroke, and damage your kidneys and eyes.
What is the blood pressure goal?
The blood pressure goal for most people with diabetes is below 140/90. It may be different for you. Ask what your goal should be.
C for Cholesterol
There are two kinds of cholesterol in your blood: LDL and HDL.
LDL or “bad” cholesterol can build up and clog your blood vessels. It can cause a heart attack or stroke.
HDL or “good” cholesterol helps remove the “bad” cholesterol from your blood vessels.
What are the LDL and HDL goals?
Ask what your cholesterol numbers should be. Your goals may be different from other people. If you are over 40 years of age, you may need to take a statin drug for heart health.
I have included a special infographic provided with thanks to Maggie Danhakl, Assistant Marketing Manager from Healthline.com. You can view it here. This is a really cool infographic! Thank you so much Maggie!
I hope this helps provide more information on ways to prevent diabetes and those with onset as well.
Yours in Success,
P.S. Here’s the link to the Diabetes Infographic once more.
How’s your New Year shaping up so far?
I wanted to tell you that deep down we all have greatness to acheive, but overcoming rejection and fear prevents us from realizing it.
When I was very young I loved to watch movies. Actually when I have time I still enjoy a good one now! Not just any movie, but those that had an underdog or the loser. Characters that had to look inside and confront their fears to become greater. I went through the same hopeless situations as many in the movies….the same as many of you!
For all the years I worked for someone else, minding the company’s assets, I always wanted more out of myself. In order for that to happen I knew I had to do something drastic – I Had To Quit My Job!
I’m not suggesting you do the same, however for me to reach my goals and realize my objective thats what was required. I struggled, cried, asked myself why I couldn’t just “be like everybody else?” Then my Overman (The name that Nietzsche gives to our higher consciousness) said to me, “It is not your destiny to just be – you must endure, persist, fight, bleed….whatever it takes to reach the goal.”
Once I put self sabotage in a box and buried it, I knew that I would now “Eat Lightning and Crap Thunder!” I would control my destiny and if I didnt reach them it was my fault and mine alone!
Whatever it is that you wish to become or acheive, you’ll never reach that place until you put fear and doubt in a grave and push beyond what you think you are capable of.
If you ever need someone to talk to, to support you in a mindset transition, help your accountability, call me and together, you as Rocky and me as Mickey will show “Creed” (life) – it won’t know what hit it!
Have an Awesome Saturday Stallion!
Good Afternoon All!
I wanted to share some information with you today. In the fast paced day to day activity, we almost always look for shortcuts to accomplish as much as we can. With this in mind, I wanted to give you some information regarding Peripheral Artery Disease and how eliminating soda completely will have a positive action imposed on PAD.
PAD patients who consumed 67 grams of sugar (equal to 20 oz can
of soda) had increased inflammation markers. When these
patients drank juice, the indicators were reduced. Although
juice contains sugar too, it also contains inflammation
What Does PAD Do?
PAD is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries, most common in the arteries of the pelvis and legs. PAD is similar to coronary artery disease (CAD) and carotid artery disease. All three of these conditions are caused by narrowed and blocked arteries in various critical regions of the body. Hardened arteries (or atherosclerosis) in the coronary artery region, restricts the blood supply to the heart muscle (this was the cause of death for my father in August of 1983). Carotid artery disease refers to atherosclerosis in the arteries that supply blood to the brain.
The next time you’re thinking about that mountain dew or coke to quench your thirst, think again and reach for some juice or even better – water.
Thanks for reading!
