Happy New Year, Wishing you the best 2018

Happy New Year family and friends!

2017 turned out to the be the best year of my life so far. There were ups and downs, but overall, significantly more highs. I had 3 main goals: Home Ownership, Get into a Healthy Lifestyle, get into a meaningful Relationship, and a handful of sub-goals. I accomplished 2/3 of the main goals. Early into the year, I crossed off the first main task and became a Home Owner for the very first time. This was a truly eye-opening experience. I love my house. The second goal was a big battle, but I knocked it out of the park and over exceeded anything I ever imagined. I went from being overweight and weak at 185 lbs to 130lbs in 6 months. I went from not being able to run at all and ran a Half-Marathon in under 2-hours. Nutrition was 85% of the battle, and “discipline equals freedom”. Embracing a Whole Food Plant-based lifestyle is game changing. My third goal definitely fell short. I haven’t had any kind of long-term meaningful relationship in my life thus far, and determined it was time. I signed up for a couple of online dating apps, went on a few blind-dates, and mixers, but all came up empty handed. Quite possibly, I was too occupied with the stresses up moving into my new home, getting settled and focusing on my personal health.

For 2018, instead of having 3 goals, I made it more streamlined to only 2. First, I want to continue on my health and wellbeing success and become an “elite version” of myself. I’d like to remain around 130lbs but lose 5% body fat and replace it with lean muscle. Also, I want to increase my upper body and core strength. To do this, I joined CrossFit. I have also signed up for a Full-Marathon and Spartan obstacle races. Second, now that I’ve settled in my home habits, and hit my general health goals in a sustainable manner, I can now put higher quality effort into nurturing a loving relationship. After some advice, I hand-wrote a very detailed sketch of what my ideal soulmate is.

Whether you had an awesome or terrible 2017, I would like to personally wish you all the best in the New Year!


Welcome Aboard My Journey

Hello everyone! It’s been almost 3 years since I’ve posted on here. So much as happened in my life. And I can’t wait to share it with you. I made this channel and website because I believe in challenging the status quo and proving that the average person can live a long healthy life. 


In the first 29 years of my life, other than a few swimming classes and softball games as a kid, I’ve had barely any physical activities. I had a terrible diet with processed foods, meats, dairy, junk food, and fast food. 


How will I do this? I find that creating a platform for accountability absolutely helps. Ex. Apple Watch and Reddit groups, or running groups. Gyms. So far, I found that the running community on Instagram to be super positive and supportive. So I feel keeping my website and YouTube up to date will keep me more accountable and consistent.


What will I do to make this sustainable and continually making it both challenging and fun? I will keep you all updated on future races /events I plan to part take in. And also do in-depth recaps of past events. And reflect on things like race preparation training , day-of experience, what I learned from it, and how I plan to address and overcome these short comings . Together we will share insight to all create a better version of us.
