Updates for the future!

So here is the newest update! I'm separating this blog from my fitness a little this is now going to be an exclusive Motoblog for you to enjoy. Weekly updates on my racing and riding adventures! This will be fun!

As for an update here. I went and put a few laps down at Two River Motocross down in Miliken, CO! Great track and great riding this past weekend. I was laying down some great laps until my bike decided it needed to take another nap on me and it kicked me off for another riding.

Don't worry nothing was broke this time but I did manage to become VERY sore again. I will rest up and prepare for a weekend of racing down in Colorado Springs.

I will have a full race report with photos this next week. Until then. Check out the new fitness log I have at

Back in the Race!

So, yesterday was my first time on the bike in 7 weeks! FELT GREAT! and I raced fairly well. Considering I'm still sore and stiff from the injury a 3 place and an 8th place to get 6th overall for the day... I'd say not bad. Now to get in some practice this next week or so and get on to the competition for the next race in two weeks in Colorado Springs. Thank to everyone for the support and I'm happy to be back.

Wonderful Chicken Wrap!

MMMMMMMMMMMM, MMM! Yep, that is the ONLY way to describe this one. The Chicken Ranch Wrap was a wonderful surprise my wife had all lined up for tonight's meal. And WOW for only about 300 total calories I'm feeling satisfied and my tummy is happy.

Here is how to make it. Grill up a small chicken breast, slice it, combine it with greens, tomato, drizzle with ranch and place in a whole wheat tortilla. AND ENJOY!

This is great and pair it with some fruit or a crisp raw veggie and you have yourself a nice filling meal that is just the right size. (Remember you don't have to feel like your gut is busting to be full and satisfied)

Who Made Me FAT!

Whew! What a holiday week!? The wife and I went up north to visit her family for the fourth and man was if HOT but still a lot of fun. Fireworks are not a big deal to me mainly because my poor little pup is very scared of the sound. So, we generally watch them from a distance.

This trip makes my blog for one reason. Its you! The reasons we gain weight is mainly the one person that has control over YOU! Yep, we have family that struggle with this just like you and I. The problem most people have is accepting responsibility for their actions. Once you do this you can learn to control the bad habits and control the cravings and control the binge eating. But you must understand that you are the under control of you.

The issue comes to be that some people don't want to say no to others out of respect. Is it respectful though that your lack of being able to stand up for you will eventually lead to massive heart failure? I think I'd rather offend a Father or Father-in-Law when I don't go back for seconds of thirds because I'm controlling my portion size than to suffer through living with 40 or more extra lbs of fat. I'd also rather look silly jumping up and down in my living room for an hour or more a night to keep myself in shape as well. Which would you choose?

My point is simple. Stop blaming the boyfriend, or the mother that love to cook that wonderful home cooked meal, and the fast food joint that you can keep from stopping at, the cookie isle, or even the door-to-door food salesman. Let look in the mirror. See that person staring back at you? That person is more than likely not anymore spacial than the one I see. That person staring back at you has the control and the power. And that person will make the difference in weather you carry your six pack in the form of cans or in the form of ABS!

That all leads me to my 6 week challenge group. This group, which is going strong already, is just me, you, and a few others sharing how well we do eating wise during the days. I posted just today about how I was running short on time and ShakeO is perfect for that. I also talked about my breakfast burrito that was super tasty and less than 300 calories.

You see once you realize your under control you can start looking at whats on the plate. Food is fuel, we put fuel in the car to make it go, not to make it feel good. Personally I'd like to put the High Octane in my body, not the cheap crap that makes a knocking noise as I'm driving down the street. This is what will help you look your best, feel your best and make that workout visibly work. Its also half the equation in the weight loss secret. Eat good foods you body will run properly. You may feel good for a sec eating crap food but soon after you'll realize that it was nothing more than a short high... Which is why you crave more.

Join us in this challenge, start you engine inside and get your body running great, leave a comment or email me and we will get you in... I know you want it, right?

Email me at: lets start a conversation on what you want out of this.

Chinese Chicken, YUM!

So, we don't ALWAYS eat the healthiest meals in the world. This is when we really control our portion size to limit the calories. One serving of this meal is around 450 is my best guess. But this one is in our weekly menu because it is just soooooo yummy! We call it our Homemade Chinese Chicken. Here is what you need. Per person: one chicken breast, one serving of brown rice, one bottle of sweet and sour sauce for cooking, peanut oil, and corn starch.

To prepare this you'll cut of the chicken in to small chunks (about 1 inch by 1 inch), place the chicken in a bowl with just enough corn starch to cover the chicken. Have the rice cooking and we personally use a Wok to fry chicken. Have the oil heating at this time. I usually try to start cooking the rice (boil in a bag) at the same time as I start the Chicken. Both take about 10 minutes to fully cook. Now take the chicken and fry it up in the walk. Stirring often. Once chicken is cooked turn off heat but keep it in the wok. Cover with the sauce and let it heat up in the walk while you portion out the rice properly on a small plate. Now use a big spoon to portion out the chicken on top of the bed of rice. Enjoy!

Yummy my favorite cheat meal of every week!

Back in the Game!

First off Happy Independence day! I hope you all had a super duper 4th and I also pray from more rain to put out all the fires in my area.

With that said... I'M BACK! Yep I'm going to make it official and I don't need a doctors note to say I can get back to my life. On thing though, I'm not going to race this weekend since my strength is lacking in my right arm. So, RMXA Cheyenne race number two... count me in! Just gotta get the bike up and running, and running now so I can put in a little practice time. And try out my new Steel MX goggles! They look SWEET!

How do I know I'm back? Well, I'm back to playing softball and the arm has a bit of discomfort but man, I was not slowed at all today. In fact I hit 2 for 2 and I attempted a diving catch. Now, I know I shouldn't have and some of the wife's watching the game were telling me, "You be careful MR!" I felt fine afterward was a good thing. Now I think I'll get the bike cleaned up and running again and then I'll be off and racing again.

The point here is I am going to give FULL CREDIT to my healthy living style these days. I proclaimed in a post early after the injury that I had to really watch my diet and that is what I did. In fact I still lost a couple pounds during this month. The best part is this... I healed up in a month when normally a multiple broken bone like mine takes two to three months. I'll be back racing in 6 weeks! This is so exciting to me. I want others to enjoy this. That means YOU!
So, I've been brain storming ideas to get others in this healthy living life style. I can't always convince everyone to do a workout right now. Though I wish I could, you'd feel 1000 times better if you joined me this month with a great challenge pack combo. But lets get back to the goal... If you just can't see yourself getting into great shape and getting a sweet six pack by sweating with the program... Well, lets at least dump the fast food binge eating and get on the good nutrition train. We can lay out a plan and get the healthy living going the best way. Your gut, hips, chin... wherever you store your fat is there for one reason. You have a crappy diet. I'm not asking you to dump the "Carbs" or go "Vegan" though the Vegan idea is the absolute best diet you can have. I'm just asking you to eat smaller portions, eat less greasy foods, more white meat, and drink more water. Lets get more fiber, more vitamins, and more of all the good fruits and veggies in your belly.

So, here is the deal. I LOVE Shakeology. I give it A LOT of credit to controlling my old cravings and getting me on track with eating good food and enjoying them. I walk into a store or sandwich shop now a days and the last thing from my mind is soda. This deal is just try it. Attempt a healthy diet for a minimum of six weeks. Six weeks is it. But you must have Shakeology as one item on the menu EVERY DAY! I assure you that by the end of the first week you'll be filling better, more alive and you'll be lighter.

To assist you, I am going to personally talk with you whenever needed via your best type of communications. I'm even going to set up a post here that we can give recipes and talk about what hurdles we have to overcome.  Leave me a comment here or get on this by emailing me then go click on the picture of Shakeology here and buy your first months supply today. I'm only going to take 10 people for this group right now.... I think it would be hard to keep track of everyone if I took more. But lets do this.... even if you don't want to be apart of the group I dare you to take me up on this. Get healthy by eating healthy and giving Shakeology a try. When your not buying 3 bottles of soda per day or a large Mocha Frapacinno then you see this was the right move for you to make.

One last time... Questions you can e-mail me and you can also leave a comment and I'll do what I can to get back with you ASAP!

Lots of Learning and Teaching

This past week has been a week full of learning and full of new beginings. First off Summit is Beachbodies annual gathering for coaches in Las Vegas. Unfortunatly I was not there but I now lots of people that were and as soon as they were home.... BOOM! The teaching was on.
There were new deals out, new products out, and a BIG new workout. I wanted to know everything so I got on Facebook and started talking to my fellow coaches on there. One thing that dissapointed me was all the photos of my friends with guys like Shaun T and Tony Horton. Man I wish I could have been there.
But back to what come out of this. P90X, TurboFire and Brazil Butt Lift are offering a free 30 day trial in a Challenge Pack. This means to you the consumer... that for this month only you can try to experience what I live now for 30 days with out paying the full retail price. Even the Shakeology. This excited me becuase I believe that some of you that are on the fence can really try what works for 30 days (the right way) and decide for yourself.

The secound thing that came out that was a bit exciting was a new workout called Body Beast! I've actually though about doing this. Its a workout that is designed to bulk a person up. THis is nice because there are those perpetually skinny as a rail kids that have a hard time bulking up. and just looking normal or buff. This program is a workout and supplament pack and nutrition plan that will give you everything needed to get bigger.  How exciting! I look in the mirror and think, I could use bigger pecks and a tighter six pack. So this may be the next one on the horizon.

Third thing that came out threw me off a bit. Its called Derm. What is it? Well, its a skin care product. Wrinkles around the eyes and dark spots on the skin and lip balm for the sun.... This is great stuff that will help your skin glow and look 10 years younger. I thought this was a little different but you know what? I've already seen the interest in it. So, if your looking to glow and lokk younger... As always email me!
The last VERY exciting thing is a new flavor of Shakeology. In fact its so exciting that as soon as I get done posting this I'm going to make the call and switch my Shake order to this flavor. This flavor is Vegan Chocolate and it supposted to taste like Dark Chocolate. YUM! The push these days is for Vegan. I'm not a fan of vegan because I enjoy my chicken and fish. But I do see the push. I have read countless books that say this is truly the way us humans are suppost to live. We actually evloved to be primaryly plant eaters but meat has always been very available. As humans always do, we get what is easy to get. But I figure if it tastes great I'm game. The best part is its not an artificial flavoring to get that chocolate flavor. Is a natural Cacao plant. Natural chocolate and this plant produces that endorphine that creates that happy feeling that a Hershey bar gives you. It also helps you feel full for longer. My opinion is you can beat that. I'll report back when I get my first taste as to if its good or not but I have no doubt that its good!

Thorough all this I have decided to run with limited size challenge groups all through the month of July. Every monday I'm going to start up groups and we are going to get fit together. My workout of choice is Insanity. Insanity will whip me back into riding shape in no time. Katie is also going to give it a try. So, the question is, why doint you? Let me know if you want in! Remember its a limited size group.

Last thing is the teaching others. How? Well, I just signed two new coaches and if they are successful I am too. So, I must teach them all I know and more so we can take the world by storm and carry out the beachbody mission. End the Trend of Obiesity. The benefits of coaching is discounts, making money, and free trips to fun destinations like Atlantis and Disney. In fact at summit they announced 5 new beachbody millionares. WOW, I'd love to become a beachbody millionare. I can only do it with the help of you, and once everyone in the state of wyoming is skinny and healthy I should be there. Like I said many times before helping others reach thier goal is my mission and I am always willing to help you out. So, lets do this. Email me:

Update: My shoulder is feeling great. Played my first softball game the other night. I will admit there is still alot of discomfort in the shoulder but I think I just need to build muscle again. Hopefully its ready to race in a couple weeks. Now I just gotta fix up the bike. As always I want to encourage you to go support my newst racing team member! Steel MX Optics, they get great reviews on all thier product and it looks great too at a GREAT price. Check them out:
