IN THIS ISSUE:
I was reading a travel book the other day that had a section on ultralight backpacking. This was a new concept for me and the idea of traveling as light as possible sounded interesting. At first glance everything made sense to me and sounded cool. Then it started to get silly. They modify EVERY item they pack to reduce superfluous weight, such as removing the handle from a toothbrush and drilling holes in the stub that is leftover. They also cut all tags off of clothing. That was the part that got me. Not the toothbrush thing, but the fact that they remove the tags from their clothes to save weight and space. I was forced to ask myself how much “superfluous weight” removing a one inch by one inch piece of cloth saves them? “That’s just stupid” I thought to myself, until I realized the deeper meaning of their methodology. How many of us have failed at something simply because we half-assed it? If I want to win in this game of life I better be willing to do EVERYTHING I can. If I can do something to make myself just a little lighter, just a little faster on my way to the top, I’m going to do it. When you cross the finish line first, you realize that all the little things added up.
Do you ever wonder how different society would be if all of the sudden clothing was outlawed? I think at first, most people wouldn’t leave their homes. Then people would start eating better and exercising more. Eventually, people would start to get more comfortable with the concept of sex as they became more comfortable with their own body. Clothing for most people is a way to hide the body they are ashamed of. Here is my point. All of us have had that fantasy of having sex like a porn star, with the lights on, but very few of us have actually done it. My advice is to evaluate how comfortable you would be walking around completely naked in public. Then deal with whatever physical and emotional issues you uncover. Get past the shame. The first step to great sex is being comfortable with yourself (even if the lights are off).
Last month I mentioned that I’m testing a next generation steroid replacement in the gym. I weighed in two days ago at 232 Lbs. (I’m 6 foot 1) – I’m starting to look like an albino version of The Hulk – It’s working. I’ll have before and after pictures for you at the end of my 3 month trial. More information about what I’m taking is on the product’s website:
That’s it for now… Go make it happen!
